Magellan Healthcare, the behavioral and specialty health care segment of managed care organization Magellan Health, has teamed up with Kyo Autism Therapy to develop outcome standards for autism therapies.

The two announced Tuesday that the partnership will test and develop evidence-based practices for autism therapy providers that work with payers under value-based care models.

“[Applied Behavior Analysis] services have struggled to transition from a fee-for-service to a value-based model,” Colin Davitian, CEO of Kyo Autism Therapy said in a news release. “Our collaboration with Magellan will help change the paradigm and make ABA treatment more individualized and outcomes-driven.”

The partnership is intended to drive further adoption of value-based care and outcome-based programs in the autism treatment space, the release states.
