Guiding investment in the behavioral healthcare and autism landscape
Autism Spectrum Disorder is one of the fastest growing areas of behavioral healthcare today. The unfortunate reality for most providers is that the demand for services is high, placing pressure on the ability to deliver quality clinical outcomes. For those who are meeting the needs of their community, growth becomes difficult when faced with challenges such as funding and financing, regulatory compliance, staff retention, maintaining a high level of employee satisfaction and customer service.
With a deep understanding of how the industry has evolved through the years, Empowering Synergy’s mission is to help autism service providers build value. We do this by developing strategies and implementing processes to help you scale, fostering a strong company culture in the process.
Affecting change through high value relationships, we focus on bridging the gap between stakeholders and customers, as well as within the company culture in order to improve clinical outcomes, efficiency, staff retention and service delivery.
The autism service industry is in an evolutionary stage. The industry itself has grown substantially in the last two decades and with it the funding source network, fueled by the unfortunate reality that autism has become one of the most widespread childhood developmental disorders with a prevalence of 1 in 68 children affected. Recognizing this trend, many investors are eager to capitalize on the growth.
The autism services landscape is a fragmented market comprised primarily of small companies who are limited in their ability to provide effective and efficient services. Often, the consumer suffers with less than optimal outcomes of the therapy. Less sophisticated providers are unable to scale their businesses to meet the demands of the market and often fail to understand how to grow their businesses effectively.
As a result of the rapid growth of the industry, there are many under-qualified individuals providing lower quality autism and behavioral healthcare services – and profiting greatly in the process. Since the demand far outweighs the supply, it is probable that providers of lesser quality services will continue to grow. As a result, some investors are funding less effective autism services simply because they don’t know how to differentiate. This volatile situation presents as much risk as it does opportunity.
