IRVINE, Calif.- November 16, 2022— Merit Awards, an independent awards program that recognizes global industries and the market they serve, this week announced the winners of the Merit Awards for Healthcare. ACES was designated with a gold standing Merit Award in Healthcare Systems for its work on the Center of Excellence (COE) quality system and excellence in service delivery. Additionally, ACES innovation around telehealth services during uncertain societal times provided access and continuity of care for thousands of families earned them this distinction.
Ashley Drag, Senior Vice President of Clinical Services and Innovation said, “We are honored to receive this award. ACES clinicians treat each client with dignity and respect while providing life-changing comprehensive treatment. They deserve to be recognized for their excellence in service delivery aligned to the ACES Center of Excellence Index.”
The Center of Excellence is a time-proven and collective measure of performance excellence for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinics. The index is comprised of over sixty metrics across five categories: 1) timely access to support and services, 2) comprehensive assessment bundle, 3) established medical necessity, 4) engaging client experience, and 5) meaningful ABA outcomes.
