Ascend Behavior Partners Earns 2-Year BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Denver, CO – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Ascend Behavior Partners with a 2-Year Telehealth Accreditation, acknowledging the organization as a behavioral service provider dedicated to continuous improvement in applied behavior analysis. BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation recognizes behavioral health organizations that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff qualifications and consumer satisfaction and promote systems that enhance these areas. These areas are measured with a wide-ranging audit, including a full review of organizational compliance, human resources requirements, patient intake, clinical practice and technology, and privacy and security.
BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation is the only applied behavior analysis (ABA)-specific accreditation for telehealth services, consisting of an interview, document review and systems analysis. It provides feedback regarding clinical best practices, staff satisfaction and turnover, and consumer protection. Acting as a third-party, the organization systematically measures and reports on existing quality criteria in the behavior analysis community using standardized methods and practices, and accredits only those service agencies that meet these standards.
“Everyone at Ascend Behavior Partners is excited to have earned BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation,” said Founding Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Michael Wright. “With telehealth services quickly on the rise, I’m honored to be part of a team that understands the need for quality, ethical care, supervision, and parent training online. And our families benefit from having another route for the delivery of high-quality services. Earning Telehealth Accreditation is more important now than ever given our commitment to increasing access and quality of care to families in need. ”
