Northwest Behavioral Associates Earns BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation
Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement
Bellevue, WA – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Northwest Behavioral Associates with a 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.
“NBA is committed to the delivery of sound, innovative services to the learners we serve,” said Director Stacey Shook and Compliance Coordinator Wendy Knowles. “Our team is excited to receive the BHCOE Telehealth accreditation. We believe this will only foster a better understanding of the current ABA climate. We look forward to continuing to provide comprehensive support as every learner and family present unique strengths and challenges.”
