ABA Benchmarking: Elevating Data Collection and Quality Measures in Behavioral Healthcare

Behavior analysts uphold a commitment to precise observation and meticulous data analysis to gauge their clients’ progress. This data-driven approach empowers them to refine treatment protocols, adapt strategies, and ensure that individuals with autism are achieving favorable outcomes. Many practitioners are embracing technology solutions to streamline their data collection processes and elevate the quality of care delivered in response to the evolving landscape of behavioral healthcare.

Benchmarking for ABA with Security Beyond HIPAA Regulations

Since Jade Health has brought NADR to full market scale, Autism Care Groups rest-assure that their data is secure thanks to rigorous safe-harbor de-identification process and knowledge that NADR goes beyond adherence with HIPAA regulations with patient data. They can then enjoy the benefits of benchmarking against a growing sample of patient populations from groups such as Acorn Health, who had this to say about the initiative in March- “Up until this point, Acorn has been benchmarking against ourselves from overall outcomes and progress perspective . . . by pairing with a couple of other organizations of scale as part of this NADR project, we’ll be able to make some apples-to-apples comparisons with other organizations which I think will continue to fuel this conversation.” – Krista Boe, chief clinical officer, Acorn Health autism business news
