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.

The features Kareo marketing offers are great, however, they need to be worked on to make sure they are functioning correctly. It should not take over 3 months of working on the issue to still not have an answer or solution.

  • There are currently some issues with the survey feature that we have not been able to open, view, or publish the survey. This has been going on for 3 months and there has been no resolution.
  • It would be nice to be able to filter who is receiving a survey so patients do not get them every time they have a visit.

It was really good in the beginning and during implementation, now that they have been bought and are scaling support is lacking

Other than speaking with someone about the issues we have had, I don't believe that anyone is actually working on a fix for our problem. If I can not open, view, and publish surveys when we receive them then part of the software is not working. They don't mind charging me every month for a service that is not functioning correctly.

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.

We were very satisfied with Demand Force but switched to Kareo because of the price. and it put all of our platforms with one company. I would say Demand Force was a better product, however, for the price, Kareo is a great option if the engineers could work the bugs out.

  • 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.
