Behavior Imaging ® Revolutionizing the Healthcare Industry One Child at a Time A ccording to the Stanford Medicine News Center, demand for autism treatment is over eighteen times larger than the available supply of caregivers in the U.S. Combine that demand with a climbing prevalence in autism diagnosis – the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported a growth of over 15 percent this year – and many individuals and families are left waiting for answers. Individuals with autism and their families require timely diagnosis and treatment but are often stopped by the barriers of distance, cost, and unavailability of experienced providers. Boise, Idaho based, Behavior Imaging ® is one prominent organization that works to eradicate all these barriers. They relentlessly focus on developing technology that increases disabled people’s access to care. The company has served over 20,000 clients in ten countries to date and has major clients such as the US Air Force, State Departments of Education, and several leading universities. The company has also won awards from the Small Business Administration (awarded in 2016 at the White House) and the Google/Autism Speaks award for its disruptive business model that allows families to share clinically relevant data from their homes to accelerate their child's diagnostic assessment.
