Welcome to the future of prevention and early detection of substance abuse

Online behavioral health assessments that screen for alcohol, tobacco and drugs (including opioids), and depression and anxiety


The WellScreen Story

At WellScreen we develop technology to promote well-being and improve lives. Early detection and prevention of substance abuse and mental health conditions no longer needs to be time consuming or complicated — not with WellScreen, an online wellness technology.

WellScreen helps
healthcare practitioners:

  • Identify individuals at risk of substance use disorders
  • Confidently conduct brief interventions
  • Create individualized treatment plans
  • Connect patients to local treatment providers
  • Follow-up with patients.

WellScreen helps

  • Aggregate data about their patient population
  • Easily run useful reports to help measure screening effectiveness
  • Save patient data and customized treatment plans electronically
  • Integrate patient data into existing EHR systems.

WellScreen is based on the SBIRT protocol and uses evidence-based health screeners, like ASSIST, CRAFFT, BOOK and PHQ9 in one simple, tablet-enabled interface.

But adopting something new usually is met with some level of resistance— i.e. not enough time, money or special technology requirements.


WellScreen is

The system walks practitioners step-by-step through the screening and intervention process, even allowing patients to participate by answering the screener questions on a tablet while they wait to be seen. Ten minutes is the average time for a patient to answer the screener questions.

WellScreen is a
revenue generator.

SBIRT is eligible for billing Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance, from $7 to $18 for each screening performed and an additional $9 to $47 for each intervention performed. WellScreen can also significantly reduce overall healthcare costs for patients with an underlying behavioral health disorder.

WellScreen meets your health
practice workflow needs.

Got an EHR system or customization needs? No problem. WellScreen is customizable thanks to our EHR integration partner, ReDox.
