Mindoula, a digital health company, acquired 180 Health Partners and its Strongwell™ programs that support addiction treatment for pregnant and post-natal women. Financial terms were not disclosed. Mindoula provides digital products that support delivery of collaborative care and population health management programs for complex populations. 180 Health Partners provides programs to treat addiction and behavioral health challenges.
As a result of the acquisition 180 Health Partners will operate as an entity under the Mindoula umbrella of companies that includes predictive analytics subsidiary Care at Hand, and psychiatry innovator, Axis Healthcare Group. 180 Health Partners will continue to offer its StrongWell™ programs on a standalone basis to health plans, governments, health systems, and provider organizations. In addition, the StrongWell™ programs will now be available in a bundle with Mindoula’s other next-generation population health management programs. Justin Lanning will continue to lead 180 Health Partners as its president and will join Mindoula’s senior leadership team as chief customer officer to help the company advance its mission to transform behavioral health care worldwide.
The Strongwell™ programs combine personalized, interdisciplinary treatment with a relationship-based support ecosystem that includes behavioral health care teams comprised of 24/7 tech-enabled counselors, peer advocates, nurses, and resource navigators. The behavioral health care teams partner with Medicaid managed care organizations, commercial, and Medicare Advantage health plans, and the teams partner with states through value-based arrangements both as a vendor and as a fully licensed and credentialed behavioral health provider organization.
The StrongWell™ programs have reduced prenatal and postpartum care (PPC) costs by more than 50%, with savings driven primarily by improved health outcomes for infants and improved PPC for mothers, resulting in an average savings of over $20,500 per baby. The programs have successfully reduced total cost of care by over 30% for all substance-exposed populations driven primarily by reduced hospital admissions, readmissions, avoidable emergency department utilization, and increased adherence to medication assisted treatment (MAT) programs through 180 Health Partners’ established relationships with in-network MAT clinics and MAT-waivered prescribers.
