Buyers guide


Last Updated: March 28, 2020

As a behavioral therapist, it's important to plan comprehensive and focused applied behavior analysis (ABA) programs—but you risk being sidetracked by loads of paperwork and administrative tasks.

Software can help you manage this, but the technology requirements of a behavioral therapist vary from those of a general medical practice. As a result, you should evaluate solutions that are specific to ABA treatment.

In this Buyers Guide, we detail everything you need to know before making a purchase decision.

Here's what we'll cover:

What is ABA software?

ABA software streamlines operations for physicians using applied behavior analysis to develop therapies to improve or change certain patient behavior. This type of software offers a range of tools that facilitate everything from capturing patient notes and clinical documentation to patient scheduling and medical billing.

Common features of ABA software

Different vendors offer different features in their ABA software. Selecting the right ABA software for your practice is easier when you know what the common features are and what they do.

Intake forms

These forms allow patients to complete all the necessary paperwork online, before their actual face-to-face appointment.

Initial assessments

Allows users to assess a patient's health condition through an initial evaluation to identify immediate threats and actions to be taken. The assessment usually includes a bio-psycho-social and a psychiatric assessment.

Treatment plans

Allows users to treat patients effectively by using a detailed plan that's tailored to the individual patient's behavioral assessment, and helps engage the patient in their treatment.

ABA-specific templates

Describe assessment measures, explain scoring parameters, and help physicians analyze and interpret clinical findings. Providers can use the pre-existing templates or, if desired, customize them.

Medical billing

Automate repetitive and error-prone billing tasks. This feature helps practices verify patients' insurance coverage and submit claims electronically.

To further understand these features and learn more about ABA software vendors, call our advisors at 855-998-8505 for free, no-obligation help. They'll help you narrow down your options by listening to your requirements and recommending the best-suited solutions for your practice.

What type of buyer are you?

Before you start evaluating ABA software options, you'll want to know what buyer category you belong to. Most buyers will fall into one of the below categories:

  • Solo therapists: These buyers are transitioning from paper charts to digital records, or they might have just started their own independent practice. They should be looking for an affordable system with basic features such as intake forms and initial assessments.
  • Small practice with two to three therapists: These buyers are looking to improve their practice's efficiency and care coordination. They may want to integrate the ABA system with their other existing healthcare systems, such as their EHR. They deal with a fair number of patients on a daily basis and would require additional features such as treatment plans and ABA-specific templates.
  • Healthcare provider with more than five therapists: These buyers are often part of a large healthcare provider that has a dedicated department for applied behavior analysis. They'll require a complete EHR suite with an integrated ABA module. Due to a high volume of patients, these buyers will also require medical billing functionality in their EHR suite.

Benefits of ABA software

While some of the benefits of ABA software may be clear from our discussion above, here are the most notable:

  • More efficient patient care: ABA software helps you reduce your manual efforts so you can stay focused on patient care. The software streamlines patient scheduling and billing, and offers pre-made templates.
  • Increased revenue: ABA software can help you increase your practice's revenue and profit by helping you manage billing operations, so you can focus on patient care. The software helps users manage claims submission, patient's insurance eligibility check, and payment processing.

Key considerations

Here are some important questions to consider before you purchase ABA software:

    • Mobile readiness: If you want to access your ABA software on an iPad, iPhone, or Android device, ask your shortlist of vendors if they offer a mobile app. As more and more healthcare professionals use mobile devices in their professional capacities, ABA software vendors are developing apps for smartphones and tablets.
    • Scalability: Ask your shortlisted vendors about the scalability of their tools. You'll need a solution that supports your practice as it grows and is able to handle your expanding needs. For instance, if you plan to add another specialty (such as substance abuse) to your ABA practice that's currently dealing with just an autism spectrum disorder, the software must be able to accommodate your requirements.
    • Customer support: Find out if the ABA software vendors you're considering offer support 24/7, only during business hours, or not at all. Also, ask about available support options, such as email, phone, or live chat.
