Alternatives ABA Earns 2-Year BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Norwell, MA – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Alternatives ABA 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.
“As soon as we learned that telehealth accreditation would be a possibility for our organization, we wanted to begin the process as soon as possible,” said Executive Director Susan Habchy. “This accreditation tells our clients that our ability to provide telehealth services has met the high standards set forth by the BHCOE. During this unprecedented time, providing high-quality telehealth services helps us overcome barriers that would otherwise be detrimental to the persons that we serve. Our organization is incredibly proud of this accreditation as it demonstrates the versatility shown by our staff at Alternatives ABA. Our clinical team puts forth exceptional effort to ensure the delivery of the highest quality care. I am beyond proud of each of them for wanting to best serve our autism community in any way possible.”
