“Data collection and documentation is fundamental to creating value-based contracting for the ABA industry, and can help ensure that patients get the correct level of support they need. Our investment can help support SpectrumAi’s use of disruptive technology and value-based care to address ABA’s significant data void.”

Vijay Patel, Managing Partner


“SpectrumAi has built a compelling product to enable higher quality care through better workflows and data science. We are excited to expand our investment in this large and growing area of need.”

Partner, F-Prime Capital


“Autism advocates and parents of autistic children have made enormous strides to get all 50 states to mandate coverage of ABA therapy. But when we took a closer look at the industry, there have been a very limited number of investments that focus on quality in the space. The emphasis on quality is the key to better outcomes for families and a chance for autistic children to grow into their full potential.”

Former U.S. Senator Bill Frist, M.D.

Co-founder of Frist Cressey


“The SpectrumAi team has created rapid momentum with both enterprise ABA providers as well as large and regional health insurance companies as the industry strives to move to measurement and value-based care. SpectrumAi’s life-changing platform will help payors, providers, and most importantly, the patients and their families receive better care.”

Navid Farzad

Managing Partner


“As the investment and innovation arm of the autism community, Autism Impact Fund believes strongly in SpectrumAI’s model, which will lead to improved outcomes through disruptive technology and value based care.”

Chris Male

Autism Impact Fund’s Co-Founder and Managing Partner


“Families, employers and health plans are all frustrated about the quality differential in ABA treatments. We are all willing to pay but would like to get high-quality care in the process. Quality measures do not currently exist in the industry and there is a significant need to evolve towards a pay for quality or pay for value methodology.”

Kent Marquedt

SpectrumAi individual investor and advisor, former CFO of Premera Blue Cross


We believe SpectrumAi’s framework of building data-backed quality initiatives through payor and provider collaboration is a winning formula to deliver change in healthcare.
