NEW YORK, July 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Rethink Behavioral Health (RethinkBH), a comprehensive practice management software solution for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and pediatric therapy from RethinkFirst, today announced a partnership with Netsmart, the leading provider of healthcare software and solutions serving the human services and post-acute communities. This collaboration will seamlessly integrate the RethinkBH best-in-class autism care resources and ABA clinical solution with the unified Netsmart CareFabric® platform, optimizing the accessibility and quality of care for individuals with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
"Healthcare providers are increasingly incorporating ABA therapy into their broader service offerings, but there historically has been a lack of data and resources to enable them to deliver autism care that is both predictable and measurable," said Jamie Pagliaro, RethinkFirst executive vice president and chief learning officer. "Netsmart has been redefining care delivery for decades and we are thrilled to offer our industry-leading resources—which draw from the largest published dataset in ABA treatment available—with Netsmart to help more individuals live healthy and fulfilling lives."
The mission of this partnership is to empower autism and IDD organizations to digitize ABA therapy workflows within one care view. The integration of the ABA clinical documentation and scheduling within the myAvatar™, myEvolv® and myUnity® electronic health record (EHR) solutions will support real-time data-driven decision-making and foster enhanced collaboration and communication among team members and caregivers; facilitating a cohesive approach to client care.
"As we continue to expand our services across the entire spectrum of person-centered care, we knew that an innovative partner like RethinkFirst would be instrumental in helping our clients drive optimal ABA and autism care outcomes," said David Strocchia, Netsmart senior vice president and managing director of human services. "We believe this collaboration extends our commitment to serving and supporting the unique needs of individuals served by our clients and look forward to enabling our clients with the tools and technology to deliver integrated, value-based care."
Through RethinkBH, Netsmart clients will have the ability to access a leading autism care and ABA clinical platform that includes comprehensive solutions for treatment planning and data collection and assessment, as well as a mobile application that allows clinicians to handle all of their documentation at the point of care. Additionally, agencies can also leverage RethinkBH's comprehensive library of over 1,500 expert-reviewed, video-based exercises for staff and parents, more than 500 customizable treatment protocols overseen by an independent advisory board, assessment capabilities including VB-MAPP, and Rethink's proprietary Medical Necessity Assessment to help clinicians prescribe effective ABA dosages to patients.
