Portland, Ore., company Owl Insights has raised just shy of $1.5 million in new funding, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The company, which is incorporated under the name Mental Health Data Services, makes software that supports mental health treatment in a variety of settings. GeekWire has reached out to Owl Insights for more information on the funding and will update this post when we hear back.

The company’s technology platform was conceived at the University of Washington, according to its website, and SEC filings show it was originally headquartered in Kirkland, Wash.

Owl Insights is now based in Portland, according to the most recent filing. The $1.5 million raised in this round appears to be the largest round of investment the company has raised to date.

But its technology is used by a wide variety of high-profile clients across the U.S., including the University of Washington, Virginia Tech, Texas Children’s Hospital and California’s San Mateo County Office of Education.

The technology helps medical professionals screen and monitor patients with mental disorders, automating and digitizing parts of that process. The platform can be integrated with a hospital’s electronic health record system or used as a stand-alone application, making it more convenient for public school systems and other non-healthcare organizations.

The company is led by President and CEO Eric Meier, a longtime health and biotechnology leader who previously led companies Cervel Neurotech and Calypso Medical.

Owl Insights was founded in 2011 and 374 people list the company as their place of work on LinkedIn.
