Beacon Health Options is Measuring the Outcomes that Matter for Individuals with Mental Health Conditions.
Beacon is implementing an innovative new strategy to create value and enhance the health care delivery system for persons living with mental illness. At Beacon, we know that person-centered, integrated care is the best path to understanding the breadth of an individual’s behavioral and physical needs, and helping him or her live life to its fullest potential. This goal can be achieved when our staff, providers and the individuals we serve have access to meaningful insights that can be transformed into positive action.
Polaris is partnering with Beacon to make new strides in individualized care and outcomes by supporting powerful patient engagement and delivering sophisticated analytics at the point of care.

Beacon Health Options is the largest specialty mental health company in the U.S., serving 48 million individuals. We are singularly focused on behavioral health care and addiction services and their related support programs, such as employee assistance programs, autism services and integrated medical/behavioral care management.Beacon also offers specialty services for persons with serious mental illness (SMI), providing a broad range of recovery support, and when needed, more intensive care management to help individuals lead productive lives in the community. An important part of that recovery support is Beacon’s focus on the psychosocial needs of persons with SMI, who often experience not only profound health challenges, but also homelessness, unemployment or involvement in the criminal justice system. We connect individuals with proven treatment resources to promote self-care so they can live independently in the community.
