CentralReach
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.

I think [eMDs Plus (formerly McKesson)] would do better with people who are familiar with computers. It isn't terribly intuitive so there's that but also these products don't provide the kind of training that would assist novice computer users. But, other than that, it's a good, solid product that provides everything a practice would need.

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.

Aprima is a much newer application with features the 1st generation of EHRs did not have. But, I do not necessarily find it easier to use. It has a lot of "moving parts" so to speak and isn't really intuitive. I've used others than I found easier to learn and use.

Return on Investment
CentralReach
  • CR allows us to streamline across locations, share admin staff across locations and automate multiple processes that previously took administrative and clinical time.
  • CR actively seeks to continue to expand and refine their practices and products, and acquire related specialty services - a critical quality in a field that is evolving as quickly as ours is.
  • Using templates through CR and their scheduling and timesheet features ensures that we have an audit-proof system and that all sessions that we provide are in compliance with regulatory agencies for reimbursement.
