The billing collections process can often feel like a drag when all you want to do is focus on your clients but as with any business, billing is often the lifeline you need to continue to serve those who need your help. As you navigate your billing process consider these steps to ensure your practice is maximizing billing and collections to the fullest!

Step 1 – Adopt an “All-In-One” Software Solution & Database

Use an integrated software system to manage information within a singular database and streamline how your practice digests data. Having a “one-stop” software solution can help your practice: schedule ABA therapy sessions; log different demographics and insurances; collect electronic recordings of ABA therapy sessions with kiddos on the autism spectrum; integrate with payroll; and process the billing of claims to primary, secondary and family insurances. Having a centralized database can also help your organization create reports on charges, payments and accounts receivable.

Step 2 – Monitor Insurance Changes

Adopt a process that allows your ABA agency’s team at the front desk to check client eligibility on a monthly basis to stay up to date on insurance changes.

Step 3Connect Front & Back-Office Workflows

Utilize a process that ensures your required authorizations are kept current and entered into an integrated software system.

Step 4Analyze & Audit

Adopt a process within your ABA practice that allows your team to audit all charges before they are released for billing. This ensures that all services entered into the integrated software system render correctly under the appropriate provider.

Step 5Create a Billing Schedule

Use a billing schedule so that claims are approved, locked and then edited and billed to the insurances 2 days later. This ensures that no further edits are needed from either party.

Step 6Digitize Your Billing

Create a system where payments are routed through your billing system electronically and are auto-posted to client accounts. Afterwards, you can immediately check that all your postings are accurate.

Step 7Automate the Payment Process

Leverage a system that ensures claims payments are posted. All denied claims are immediately processed and all appeals/corrected claims are filed.

Step 8Create an Accounts Receivable Team

Utilize a separate accounts receivable team that focuses on the existing, older claims that remain unpaid.

Step 9 – Dedicate Resources for Troubleshooting

Utilize a separate team to monitor and fix credentialing and enrollment problems.

Pro Tip: After Step 1 is completed and your practice has activated the rest of the billing and collections team, utilize Steps 2 – through 9 simultaneously and on a daily basis to maximize results. This holistic team approach to your ABA practice’s  billing logistics can help you divide, conquer and empower your team to ensure processes are accomplished every business day. This process will also help your business stay ahead of the game and ensure billing process does not fall behind in its production or collection of payments.

CentralReach, a leading provider of EHR and practice management solutions that enable applied behavior analysis (ABA) clinicians to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and related disorders, revealed the latest addition to its already robust product portfolio: CR Insights. The powerful new business intelligence solution provides customers with advanced reporting and industry benchmarking to drive operational, financial and clinical results.

“CR Insights surfaces the wealth of data captured across CentralReach’s end-to-end platform in visually-intuitive dashboards to give our customers the ability to make data-driven decisions in an instant,” said CEO of CentralReach Chris Sullens. “By highlighting trends, critical KPIs, and, ultimately, industry benchmarks, our clients can more easily see what’s working, what’s not, and where they need to focus their limited resources to drive business performance forward. We plan to extend the solution to allow clients to utilize turnkey widgets and drag-and-drop report writing functionality to customize their dashboards to provide additional business insights that enable them to improve the outcomes they deliver to the kiddos and families they serve.”

In the severely capacity constrained autism market – approximately 30,000 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) are available to work with over 15 million children diagnosed to be on the autism spectrum. The combination of CentralReach’s powerful end-to-end platform and Insights product will allow its customers to expand the capacity of existing staff, operate more efficiently, improve workflows and improve the standard of care they provide.

The announcement marks another chapter of CentralReach’s evolution and highlights the company’s significant investments in its platform of software and services to enable ABA industry practitioners to take their practices to the next level of performance. Most recently, CentralReach announced its acquisition of Bronco Billing — now named CR BillMax Services — that extended the company’s end-to-end billing offerings by giving customers access to billing expertise proven to optimize revenue cycle management processes while improving cash flows.

CentralReach, a leading provider of EHR and practice management solutions that enable applied behavior analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism, has been chosen by Trumpet Behavioral Health to manage the treatment provider’s entire operational, financial and data collection processes as well as its client portal experience that supports the bi-directional sharing of information between clients and clinicians.

As an enterprise organization servicing thousands of clients in eight states, Trumpet Behavioral Health needed a solution to power their operations so they selected CentralReach due to the platform’s end-to-end capabilities giving them the scalability and flexibility they need to grow their organization.

“I’d like to welcome Trumpet Behavioral Health to the CentralReach family and am thrilled they entrusted us to power their back office with our industry leading platform,” said Chris Sullens, CEO of CentralReach. “With prevalence rates on the rise and clinicians in short supply, families are seeking out leading service providers, like Trumpet, in higher and higher volume. By leveraging CentralReach’s platform to streamline back office tasks, Trumpet can increase staff capacity and enable their clinicians to spend more time with more clients, allowing them to produce even better learning outcomes for their clients. We are honored to provide the technology that Trumpet Behavioral Health can use to accelerate their already impressive growth and, most importantly, help them fulfill their mission of offering exceptional, evidence-based services that exceed the expectations of the families they serve.”

At the time of writing this blog, a headline on CNN reads: “Dow sinks below 23,000, Nasdaq flirts with a bear market and oil is in free fall.” The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and Nasdaq both represent important stock exchanges. In fact, many people consider the DJIA as a financial barometer of the world. Therefore, the Dow taking a dramatic downturn makes the mainstream news and causes headaches and worry for investors.

The DJIA has 30 stocks from United States companies. For many years, the Dow had a simple calculation: summarize the stock prices of all companies and divide by the number of companies in the index. For example, the Dow started with 12 companies and if all of their companies stock price combined to $10,000, then the average would come to 833.33 ($10,000 ÷ 12). Now, the Dow uses a more complicated weighted average. But what does the Dow and index calculations have to do with behavior?

The Improvement Index

An index serves as an indicator of something. As discussed previously, the Dow and the Nasdaq indicate how well the stocks in their portfolio perform. Investors have a quantifiable figure to gauge the “health” of the market. Unknown to many behavior analysts, there exists a quantifiable figure to determine how much improvement occurred over time.

“Improvement” cuts across all ages, occupations and positions. Elementary school students, college athletes, professional musicians, and surgeons all engage in behaviors that may improve or deteriorate.

Take the example of a basketball player shooting free throws. The player who shoots from the free throw line has a number of corrects (balls through the hoop) and incorrects (balls not through the hoop). A traditional measure of skill would appear as a percentage. For instance, 15 shots correct and 5 shots incorrect = 75%. Improvement, then, would occur if the accuracy went beyond 75%.

However, increases in accuracy from one data point to the next provide only a simple conception of improvement. Namely, that of the person becoming more accurate. The Improvement Index evokes a much greater appreciation for skill development.

The following data shows a high school player, Mack, who practiced shooting free throws. Mack shoots as many balls as he can in a one-minute counting time. The data shows a rich display of information across time and the dots represent corrects and the X’s incorrects.

Figure 1. A standard Celeration Chart segment showing corrects and incorrects for shooting free throws.

A behavior analyst could also view improvement by looking at the Standard Celeration Charted data for other data features:

1. The direction of corrects and incorrects. Do they trend towards the aim or goal?
2. The speed at which each data path changes. Does the speed with which accel (corrects) and decel (incorrects) data change meet acceptable thresholds?

The data in Figure 1 reveal that both data paths move in the direction of the aim band. Furthermore, across time the corrects accelerated 1.46 times per week (a 46% weekly growth rate) while incorrects decelerated by ÷1.25 (or decayed by 20% each week).

A very sophisticated way to discern how much enhanced value happened falls in the domain of the Improvement Index. The Improvement Index takes into account the celeration value for the corrects and incorrects and then forms a ratio. The resulting value directly quantifies the degree to which a behavior became better or worse.

Mack’s x1.83 Improvement Index communicates the extent to which his free throw shooting improved. Stated differently, Mack’s ability to shoot free throws in practice improved by 83%. Just like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Improvement Index combines data (growth and decay rates across time) to provide a barometer for behavioral improvement.

With the Improvement Index behavior analysts can (1) quantitatively assess improvement or deterioration, (2) objectively compare improvement across people, and (3) have a scientific standard for which all behavior analysts grade interventions in terms of the amount of improvement produced.

Conclusion

Analyzing behavior makes for an exceptionally challenging task. The task becomes even more taxing without ready, quantifiable markers of behavior change. The Improvement Index presents a means to monitor and judge how much a behavior advanced or progressed. With the Improvement Index behavior analysis may one day have benchmarks indicating socially significant improvement. Until then, every behavior analysis can put their data to work by displaying it on a Standard Celeration Chart and examining the Improvement Index.

CentralReach, a leading provider of EHR and practice management solutions that enable Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and related disorders, announced the addition of Cheryl Michael as Chief Product Officer to the CentralReach leadership team. This announcement comes at a time when the company is heavily investing in its product, organization and offerings to serve its mission of providing the end-to-end software and services platform that ABA professionals need to succeed.

As the newest member of CentralReach’s leadership team, Michael brings over 18 years of healthcare experience, most recently as EVP of Product Management and Engineering at Envera Health. Her experience optimizing product management practices and delivering innovative healthcare technology solutions will play a key role in advancing CentralReach’s mission to provide the end-to-end platform of software and services that help our customers produce superior outcomes for their clients and further solidify CentralReach’s position as a leader in the ABA market.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Cheryl to the leadership team,” said CEO of CentralReach, Chris Sullens. “Cheryl brings an incredibly unique combination of skills and experiences that will support us through this extraordinary period of growth and set us on a path of continued product excellence. In a capacity constrained market like that of autism – only 30,000 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) available to address the needs of the 15 million children and young adults currently diagnosed on the autism spectrum – clinicians need to be armed with the right tools and services to get more kids in the door faster. With Cheryl on board, we are better equipped to increase the size of our product team, mature our product development processes and accelerate development velocity so that we can better serve the needs of our customers.”

This announcement comes on the tails of other investments to the product organization. Most recently, Dave Stevens stepped into the role of Senior Director of Product Management and is currently leading the charge in advancing the company’s clinical offerings. Prior to CentralReach, Stevens ran Chartlytics, the best-in-class precision data measurement and advanced analytics technology that was acquired by CentralReach in May 2018. Chris Bruckner was also added to the team as the Product Owner of CR Practice Management and brings more than nine years of experience in revenue cycle management (RCM) to the table. The team has also added two new senior user experience designers to enhance the platform’s already easy-to-use experience.

These hires will support the many product launches and enhancements planned for 2019, including the recently introduced CR Insights analytics module – a new business intelligence solution that provides advanced reporting and industry benchmarking to drive operational, financial and clinical results to keep customers moving in the right direction. Other planned solutions include the introduction of CR Institute, a centralized hub of industry-leading content and courses backed by the 20 BCBA staff employed by CentralReach that support BCBAs in their ongoing commitment to continuing education, software training, professional credentialing and more.

Despite the many social strides that have been made in 2018, it’s still far too difficult for adults with autism to find work. With prevalence rates now showing 1 in 40 people with autism, only 16 percent are in full-time paid positions, and those people can face criticism, isolation, and discrimination in the workplace.

People with autism deserve more opportunity for employment and fair treatment when they are employed. Furthermore, it’s possible that in minimizing employment opportunities for those with autism, we miss out on the benefits of a neurodiverse workforce, in which the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioral traits are regarded as part of a normal variation in the human population, and squander their unique talent.

In 2018, we have finally begun to see a national conversation budding around advocacy for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the workplace, but simply put, adults with autism want and deserve more opportunities to exercise their strengths and feel engaged in the workplace.

At CentralReach, we’re working to create those opportunities through our ReachOut Program. While our clients support the lifespan of needs of children and adults with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities, we saw the incredible need of creating employment opportunities for adults on the autism spectrum. CentralReach now employs an inclusive team that includes adults on the autism spectrum.

Beyond how the program proudly seeks to address the need for greater neurodiversity in the professional world, we are excited to see how it is making a significant difference in the everyday morale not only for the adults in the program, but for their families who have witnessed a major change in their adult children and have entirely new outlooks on what is possible for them in their adult lives.

Family members of participants in the ReachOut Program report that they have seen huge improvements in the quality of life of their adult children as a result of the program.

“My son was incredibly bored, disengaged, and longed for a job,” said one mother. It was difficult for her to imagine an independent future for him where so few job opportunities existed. After just six months in the program, he has a newfound sense of responsibility, a better relationship with his family, is helping to pay bills and opening up more. Another program participant has learned to drive and bought his own car since joining the program, and many more examples exist.

These individuals bring remarkable talent and work ethic to the team at CentralReach. We’re excited to continue to grow the ReachOut program in the coming year, and to advocate for the equal opportunity and treatment of adults with autism in the workplace.

CentralReach, a leading provider of EHR and practice management solutions that enable applied behavior analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism, today announced its newest addition to the executive team, Michelle Moylan, Vice President of People. As a strategic hire, Moylan will work closely with the CEO and leadership team to help advance the company in its commitment to hire and retain top talent to support the company’s position as a market leader.

“We’re happy to welcome Michelle to the CentralReach leadership team,” said Chris Sullens, CEO of CentralReach. “At a time when we are growing, and growing fast, investing in our people and culture is central to our success. Michelle’s experience in building dynamic cultures that maximize an organization’s ability to attract, retain and grow top talent will be a valuable addition to the organization, allowing us to better leverage our team to drive innovation within the ABA space.”

As Vice President of People, Moylan is responsible for all of talent management at CentralReach, including recruiting, onboarding, professional development and human resource initiatives.

CentralReach has made significant strides in the past six months towards building an enterprise-ready organization. With accelerated investment in people, products, processes and systems, the company is better positioning itself to increase client satisfaction, all with the goal of fulfilling its mission of providing powerful, intuitive ABA solutions that enable CentralReach clients to produce superior outcomes for people with autism.

CentralReach, a leading provider of EHR and practice management solutions that enable applied behavior analysis (ABA) clinicians to produce superior outcomes for people with autism, announced the recent acquisition of Bronco Billing, a managed billing services provider. The acquisition serves to extend CentralReach’s end-to-end offerings by giving customers access to billing expertise that has been proven to expedite and maximize revenue received.

“I couldn’t be happier to add Bronco Billing to the CentralReach platform,” said Chris Sullens, CentralReach CEO. “The company has developed proven workflows that not only help clients improve their clean claim rates but also help them uncover missed revenue from otherwise unfiled claims. By adding Bronco Billing and their expert billing services to the CentralReach portfolio, we are better positioned to offer our clients the best end-to-end practice management solution that they need to grow their business and focus on what matters most – producing superior outcomes for their clients.”

In conjunction with this acquisition, Bronco Billing will be renamed CR BillMax Services to reinforce its strategic importance to the CentralReach platform and complement the company’s revenue cycle management software, which will be powered by BillMax technology. Under the new name, customers will now have access to managed billing services such as receivables collections, post payments, claims submission, denial re-submissions and more. CentralReach will also be adding a white-glove experience to help customers implement billing the right way from day one. The service includes access to proven billing workflows, personalized training workshops for internal staff and more. With the cost of caring for Americans with autism expected to rise to $461 billion by 2025, the addition of these billing services will provide CentralReach therapy providers with the tools they need to prepare for that rapid growth.

The acquisition is just one example of how CentralReach is investing heavily in its product. Most recently, the company embarked on a multi-state product roadshow to elicit customer feedback on the future of CentralReach solutions. These collaborative events enable CentralReach to share its vision, preview planned feature enhancements and identify additional pain points that the company can address for its client base. The company will continue to host product roadshows and plans to introduce a user conference in 2019 to expand opportunities to engage with its client base and feed key inputs to its product management team.
