Our story is about creating Partner success stories.

Credible exists to improve livesat the industry level, provider level, clinical level, community level, family level, and personal level. Our product is Behavioral Health Enterprise Software, but our Partnership-based approach is what separates us from every provider in our industry. Others may offer the ‘what’. Credible excels at the all-important “how.”

Driven by a personal passion to make a difference.

Credible’s Founder, Matthew M. Dorman, lost his sister as a result of medication non-compliance. Barbara Dorman, sister to Mr. Dorman, was a devoted mother, sister, aunt, and daughter who ironically worked as an office manager at a local behavioral health organization. 

In late 1995, a severely mentally ill individual was discharged from a Maryland psychiatric hospital without any community-based care. On February 12, 1996, this individual had a psychotic break and called a friend to talk. This friend contacted Mr. Doman’s sister, Barbara, knowing she knew the individual through the community. Barbara volunteered to check on him in person. Tragically, her caring, concern and willingness to help others resulted in her murder. The lack of proper follow up from the institution the individual had been discharged from, the lack of qualified community-based care, and the complications arising from a low tech solution overly reliant on paper records resulted in this tragedy.

Following the death of his sister, Mr. Dorman made a vow to ensure other families would not have to suffer the same pain and suffering his family did. This resulted in the founding of Credible Behavioral Health.  For nearly 20 years, Mr. Dorman has combined determination and focus with an unwavering personal commitment to uphold the Mission of improving the quality of care and lives in behavioral health.

Improving quality of care. Improving quality of life.

Put simply, Credible Behavioral Health Enterprise Software provides secure, proven, easy-to-use, web-based software for clinic, community, residential, and mobile care providers across the United States. Our solution encompasses clinical, scheduling, billing, form management, eRx, eLabs, mobile (connected and disconnected), reporting and business intelligence capabilities. By making the process of documentation, clinical review, and operational management easier, we enable professionals the ability to focus on providing high quality clinical care.

Based in Rockville, but reaching far beyond those bounds.
