Centene Corporation partnered with Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE), a health care accreditor, to research and advance continuous improvement in autism treatment outcomes. The initiative will focus on assessing applied behavior analysis (ABA) treatment delivery, quality of care, and treatment outcomes. The goal is to support access to quality services for people on the autism spectrum and related developmental disabilities.
This research collaboration will help better assess treatment outcomes and quality of care through formalized measurements of ABA services. These measures will allow benchmarking of national healthcare quality standards for behavioral health that aim to improve quality and efficiency. They will also be foundational in delivering ABA services within a value-based care framework.
BHCOE® is an ANSI-accredited accrediting body within the autism field. Over the last seven years, BHCOE has dedicated itself to transforming care for people with autism and related developmental disabilities through a relentless focus on serving as a source for the autism community on how best to improve the quality of care, safety, well-being, and life for patients and families.
