Our founder, Dr. Jonathan Hoistad, first started a successful psychology clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota, in the early 2000's. What started as a small private practice soon grew to become a comprehensive psychological service clinic of 30 clinicians.
Dr. Hoistad next created an outcomes assessment measurement tool called the Health Dynamics Inventory (HDI Connect), which tracks a patient's progress through treatment. HDI Connect tracks whether a patient is getting better, worse, or staying the same as they progress through the treatment they are receiving. It allows for better quality care to be provided and ultimately improve efficiencies in clinical settings.
Natalis Outcomes was founded by Dr. Hoistad in December of 2012. This program of Behavioral Health Home Services was created because Dr. Hoistad wanted to better assist those that were not able to receive the resources and support that were necessary to living a better quality of life.
Natalis Outcomes is one of the first providers to lead the exploration of the Behavioral Health Home Services program. The main idea of the program is to better coordinate care for people with serious mental illness. The Behavioral Health Home model offers a coordinated approach to health care, serving the whole person across all areas of health and wellness, from primary care to social services.
