Technology Week 2020

We partnered with some of the leading ABA technology providers to share the latest tools and techniques for optimizing your practice and maximizing patient outcomes.

Motivity: Technology Week

Motivity: Technology Week

Mobile software applications that track a user’s geo-location have become incredibly prevalent in our society. Due to how easy it is to install these applications, users often accept terms and conditions without fully understanding what type of data they’re sharing with a software vendor. Health practitioners working in the field of ABA are bound by HIPAA regulations. We’ll briefly discuss how those regulations pertain to geo-location data highlighting some of the dangers of using freely available applications not meant to be used within the context of ABA. Additionally we’ll present a number of case studies pertaining to geo-location exposure and provide a number of solutions ABA providers can take to ensure this data is not exposed.
In addition, we introduced a new PMS solution called Accupoint 2.0 that integrates the thera-Link product. What makes this product stand out is that we offer a free trial and when you sign up you can start using the product the same day. There is no lengthy onboarding process!
