athenaCollector would be well suited for smaller practices. It is well suited for larger practices, however some turn around time/system maintenance becomes more challenging.

For an organization providing ABA service, there really is nobody else that even provides a remotely comparable service. It does have limitations and areas of the system that take more training or are less intuitive than one might hope, but their customer support representatives are generally really helpful and they are pretty quick to make updates to better serve their clients. They are incredible at finding efficient ways to reduce workflow, and while the product can be quite pricey, we have found that it has saved us at least 2 FT admin positions through the efficiency it has created and further frees up our clinicians so that they can focus in more on client outcomes. It's instrumental in our ability to scale our operations across locations. Even with its limitations, it's proven to be in a class of its own in the ABA world.
Read full review Pros Ease of scheduling appointments, checking patients in, and entering charges. The system is very user friendly and navigation throughout the system is not complicated. Reporting tools are setup in a format that the average user can use. Read full review CentralReach is easy to use once you get fully trained. CentralReach helps us schedule our appointments, document our services, and quickly convert those sessions into charges to be billed to payors. CentralReach is always evolving and implementing new features to keep up with client demands and the ever changing healthcare field. Read full review Cons Reporting for payer contract variances is weak for an organization as large as ours. Custom report development can get pricey and take some time to develop. A few of the spin-off products, such as the Dashboards, are not as customizable as our organization had hoped they would be.

The ease of use is far superior than any other similar billing systems product I have used. Navigation throughout the system is very self explanatory. Training time on this system is 1-3 days depending on users role (prior to additional on the job training within the system specific to the users role). Other systems have had software training for a week or more.

The user functionality is intuitive. The customer service is beyond other products which allows you to be more efficient and effective at using the system. Also, entering programming which is the primary use is very easy and also intuitive. Many parts of the system are connected which auto populate reports for our therapist. On the business side, the scheduling to billing is very effective.
