BHCOE has recognized Ascend Behavior Partners with a 2-Year 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.

“Everyone at Ascend Behavior Partners is truly excited to have earned BHCOE Telehealth Accreditation,” said Chief Clinical Officer Michael Wright. “With telehealth services quickly on the rise, I’m honored to work with staff that understand the need for quality, ethical care online. And our families truly benefit from having another route of services for their children.”
