CentralReach acquires data-collection solution company Thread Learning

Matawan-based electronic health record solutions company CentralReach has acquired an autism data-collection solution firm, it announced Wednesday.

The company said its deal for Thread Learning will grow its market position as a provider of applied behavior analysis record solutions for health care organizations focused on autism and related disorders. Thread’s mobile data collection solution is designed for center-based clinics and schools, CentralReach said in a news release, and will be added to CentralReach’s own clinical offerings.

Thread CEO Greg Brill will join the CentralReach team, working on its clinical solution product roadmap under the leadership of Chief Product Officer Cheryl Michael. New York-based Thread’s platform will remain available as a standalone product, as well as an integrated offering with CentralReach products.

“Greg, Sam (Raudabaugh, the co-founder) and the Thread team have brought a beautiful, intuitive, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use data collection solution to market that is universally loved by its users and will become a core piece of CentralReach’s vision for its next-generation clinical data collection offering,” CentralReach CEO Chris Sullens said in a prepared statement. “In addition to adding Thread’s product and customers, I’m most thrilled to add the Thread team to CentralReach to help lead the development of our next-generation clinical products.”

This represents CentralReach’s fifth acquisition in 18 months, including three deals for clinical-related solutions, the company noted.
