The investment will enable Behavior Science Technology to scale its current offerings to help the software provider address the ABA industry’s future demands
Fort Lauderdale, FL – December 2, 2021 – CentralReach, the leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR) software and services for applied behavior analysis (ABA) and related behavioral health providers, today announced it has completed a strategic investment with Behavior Science Technology, a software company specializing in Organizational Behavior Management (OBM)-based performance management to help ABA providers set performance standards that drive clinical excellence.
With the investment in Behavior Science Technology, the two companies are evaluating an eventual integration with the CentralReach platform. With the ability to better manage and track clinician performance via BSTperform™, ABA organizations are developing more highly-skilled clinicians, delivering better clinical outcomes for clients, and driving higher profitability for the organization - results that align well with CentralReach’s mission to provide a suite of end-to-end solutions that enable superior outcomes.
Behavior Science Technology offers a cutting-edge digital platform, a data-driven performance management tool that enlists the science of Behavior Analysis to enhance job performance. Clinical supervisors can access data-based factors combining competency, situational awareness, and setting events to help professionals excel in the workplace. The BSTperform platform, which offers features catered specifically for autism service organizations, groups and measures data across three major metrics: clinical, professional, and environmental. The clinical facet includes quantifiable hard skills like treatment integrity. The professional facet looks at individualized soft skills like productive personality traits. The environmental facet accounts for work patterns in relation to a specific setting.
"We are enormously excited about this partnership with Behavior Science Technology and what it will mean to our customers,” said CentralReach CEO Chris Sullens. “During this time of rapid market growth and new clinical professionals entering the market, we believe that Behavior Science Technology’s solutions can help further the future of the autism care quality by helping clinicians hone their skills in ways that traditional performance management tools cannot."
Sullens also notes there may be further business opportunities with Behavior Science Technology beyond CentralReach’s strategic investment. “We look forward to supporting Behavior Science Technology’s continued growth and innovation.”
“Partnering with CentralReach brings added value to our customers, and I couldn't be more excited,” said Tricia Glick, Founder and CEO of Behavior Science Technology. “Integrating BSTperform with CentralReach's suite of products will provide our customers the insights needed to grow their businesses, manage their clinical staff, and deliver the highest quality services.”
