Are we living up to the promises made to special education students?
Accelify’s mission is about helping schools answer this question and providing them with tools to make sure the answer is – Yes.

We began as a niche Medicaid billing company in 2008, but with this mission driving our product roadmap, we have evolved into a leading provider of special education management software and services.

What led to this transformation?

Working with school districts across the country to maximize their Medicaid programs, Accelify identified a major challenge in special education program management – most school districts lacked a unified data system to connect the entire special education lifecycle – from the output of student plan requirements (IEP, 504, etc.) – through the execution of those plans (resource allocation, service scheduling and delivery) – all the way to state reporting, Medicaid billing and contractor management. These information gaps resulted in poor visibility on IDEA compliance and student progress and lack of service assurance and accountability. They also hampered school districts’ ability to ensure proper resource utilization – leading to millions in excess costs annually.

To address this issue, we designed an end-to-end management solution that provides a continuum of care for all special education students.

But we didn’t stop there.

As a technology company, we made it our priority to focus on what we call the “Three R’s of Solution Development”

Return to Visibility – For Accelify, visibility is all about providing insight and actionable data into special education operations to drive programmatic efficiencies, reduce costs, increase IDEA compliance and maximize Medicaid revenue. From instant access to IEP data for district and state reporting purposes and “at a glance” visibility into service requirements to guide therapists in delivering IEP mandated services, to in-depth compliance, staff performance, and revenue dashboards, Accelify is committed to providing our clients with visibility at every stage of the special education process.

Return on Effort – Accelify’s systems are also designed to ensure that the effort expended by any system user is returned in time savings many times over. Our goal is to provide technology solutions that enhance the lives of our users, rather than weigh them down with additional work. To achieve this, we didn’t build a one size fits all solution, but rather flexible and scalable systems with modules tailored to each individual group of personnel, each designed to add value to the daily life of those user groups while increasing productivity, compliance, and maximizing Medicaid reimbursements.

Return on Investment – Finally, Accelify’s systems are built to provide a tangible ROI. This means for every dollar spent on Accelify’s products and services, multiple dollars of value are received. This value comes in many forms, from reduced operational costs through better systems, smarter data-driven resource allocation, to reduced legal costs as they relate to due process complaints, and increased Medicaid reimbursement.

What’s next for us?

Our team is extremely proud of the impact we have had for the 100’s of school districts we work with across the country. As we look ahead, we are excited about the future evolution of our product and service offering, one we are sure will continue to carry out our mission of living up to the promises made to special education students.
