Malama Pono Autism Center Earns 3-Year BHCOE Reaccreditation Receiving National Recognition for Commitment to Quality Improvement

Mililani, HI – BHCOE Accreditation has recognized Malama Pono Autism Center with a 3-Year Reaccreditation, acknowledging the organization as a behavioral service provider dedicated to continuous improvement in applied behavior analysis. BHCOE Accreditation recognizes behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff qualifications and consumer satisfaction and promote systems that enhance these areas. These areas are measured with a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, an anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and an anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.

BHCOE Accreditation is the only applied behavioral analysis (ABA)-specific accreditation. It provides feedback regarding clinical best practices, staff satisfaction and turnover, and consumer protection. Acting as a third-party, the organization systematically measures and reports on existing quality criteria in the behavior analysis community using standardized methods and practices, and accredits only those service agencies that meet these standards.

“Partnering with BHCOE has provided us an in-depth analysis of our company that is extremely valuable.” Said CEO Dr. Matt Brink.  “We are proud of the work we gave done to meet the standards for a three year accreditation and humbled to continue serving the children and families of Hawaii.”
