CentralReach acquires Pathfinder Health Innovations applied behavior analysis therapy software


CentralReach, a provider of EHR and practice management solutions that enable Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for therapy, has acquired Pathfinder Health Innovations (PHI), a practice management and data collection software solution designed for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The acquisition increases CentralReach’s market share and is expected to provide SMEs with a quick and easy-to-use start-up solution to gain immediate operational efficiency.

Founded in 2010, Pathfinder Health Innovations’ mission and vision is to help children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) live more social lives. By providing simple and effective software tools to support ABA-based therapy, Pathfinder strives to help advance people with ASD by realizing their full potential. Launched as ABPathfinder in 2010 and merged with EBI Billing in 2016, Pathfinder Health Innovations’ services cover the full spectrum of therapeutic practice needs, accelerating revenue generation and ensuring increased outcomes for clients.

Post-acquisition plans for Pathfinder

The Pathfinder platform will coexist with CentralReach’s complete enterprise solution. The team will remain in its Kansas City, Missouri office. Pathfinder CEO Tina Youngblood will remain on the CentralReach team under the leadership of Chris Sullens.

“I am delighted to join forces with CentralReach,” commented Pathfinder CEO Tina Youngblood. “When we combine the strengths of Pathfinder with those of CentralReach, our customers, large and small, are the ultimate winners. CentralReach is a market leader and Pathfinder fits perfectly with its commitment to people, products and customers. Our existing and new customers should expect to see great things with our offering under the CentralReach umbrella. “

CentralReach’s investment strategy in expanding product offerings

The acquisition is part of the company’s investment in its product offerings and is the third acquisition in the past 12 months. In December 2018, CentralReach acquired the successful managed billing services company Bronco Billing, now known as CR BillMax Services. In May 2018, the company acquired the leading provider of real-time behavior change analysis software, Chartlytics. With its acquisition of Chartlytics, the company is revolutionizing the ABA space with cutting-edge solutions including precision teaching, clinical data collection, planning, billing and learning management. To date, more than 65,000 clinicians and educators use CentralReach’s ABA therapy platform to produce superior results for people with autism.

Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
