Don't Pay for Time, Pay for Performance: Designing and Implementing an Ethical Pay for Performance System at an ABA Company
ADAM E. VENTURA (World Evolve, Inc.), Jill M. Hollederer (KGH Consultation & Treatment)
Abstract: Many companies in the applied behavior analysis (ABA) arena utilize payment structures that focus on completion of billable hours versus incentive based systems that target improved quality and outcomes for their clients. With healthcare costs at an all-time high and an insurance industry poised to change to value-based models of care, the time is now for ABA organizations to move away from time-based pay formats and into the realm of performance-based pay. This talk will chronicle the journey of one ABA company through the development and implementation of a pay for performance system that balances business and financial goals with ethical strategies. The presentation will include details on the initial assessment of the companys performance, identification of performance measures, design of the performance improvement system in accordance with the BACB Professional and Ethical Compliance Code, and implementation challenges and successes.
