Pompano Beach, FL – November 27, 2019 – CentralReach has been named a silver winner in for Company of the Year (Medium category) in the 9th annual Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.

Since the program’s inception in 2011, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants have spanned the spectrum, from the most innovative local companies and start-ups to some of the most recognizable global brands. With more than 700 entries, the 9th annual program attracted a record number of entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and spanning all geographic regions and industries in the U.S. and Canada.

Pompano Beach, Florida – November 21, 2019 – CentralReach, the leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR) technology and practice management solutions that enable over 80,000 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and behavioral disorders, today announced the rebrand and relaunch of its acquired real-time behavior change analytics software, Chartlytics, to CentralReach PrecisionX, or CR PrecisionX.

CR PrecisionX arms clinicians with the power to make and measure real-time decisions and adjust a client’s clinical treatment plan accordingly using a digitized version of the Standard Celeration Chart. With increased frequency in quality decision making that is closer to the point of care, clinicians can positively transform the developmental trajectories of people on the autism spectrum.

“This is an exciting moment for precision measurement and the ABA community at large,” said Chris Sullens, CEO of CentralReach. “Increasing the frequency and quality of decision making for CentralReach behavior clinicians and technicians will help learners — many of them children on the spectrum — live richer, more independent lives. It will also serve to make clinicians more efficient and effective in their decision making to more quickly overcome any potential gaps in the skills of the learners – a benefit that should be welcomed given the capacity constraint that currently exists with only 36,000 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) available to serve the millions of people with autism.”

This relaunch represents just one of the many investments CentralReach is making into the advancement of the ABA therapy with transformative methodologies, content and software. Earlier this year, the company launched its research, content and educational arm, CR Institute, to spearhead ABA research, develop and offer ongoing education with an ever-growing library of hundreds of continuing education courses, fully-digital clinical programming, ABA consulting, training and much more, all with the sole purpose of propelling ABA therapy forward.

Pompano Beach, FL, October 9th, 2019CentralReach, a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solutions that enable Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and related disorders, announced today that it has acquired the curriculum and programming business of Precise Xceleration. Its founder, Dr. Kerri Milyko, BCBA-D, LBA will join CentralReach’s CR Institute team as Director of Clinical Programming to develop and deliver a fully digital, evidence-based clinical programming solution for autism therapy integrated directly into the CentralReach platform. The new off-the-shelf programming is designed to accelerate learning outcomes for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by identifying and making impactful changes to the treatment plan earlier in the therapy process and in an ongoing, iterative fashion. The integrated, proprietary programming can be used on its own or as a supplement to existing client programming and will utilize a variety of methods including RFT, ACT and Precision Teaching in addition to traditional discrete trial training, natural environment training, prompt fading, and task analysis.

The acquisition comes at a time when the demand for high-quality, evidence-based clinical programming is increasing, as increased demand for autism therapy services, a significant influx of new BCBAs to meet this demand and reductions in reimbursement for services not performed while the learner is present all put pressure on ABA organizations to find the time to create this much-needed programming. By integrating this content directly into the clinical workflow, CentralReach enables ABA organizations to reduce staff time spent developing programming, generating reports and duplicating data entry efforts, freeing staff to focus their attention on delivering effective, fully billable services that produce superior outcomes for their learners.

“I’m very excited to welcome Dr. Kerri Milyko to CentralReach,” commented CentralReach CEO Chris Sullens. “We believe there is a need in the market for high-quality, evidence-based programming that can be seamlessly integrated into an ABA provider’s workflow. Kerri has spent her career developing, implementing and pioneering ABA curriculum for people with ASD and the ability to add someone with her knowledge, experience and energy to lead our investment in this area is exciting for CentralReach, its customers and the industry at large. After acquiring Chartlytics and expanding our offering in staff development content and curricula, this was the obvious next step for us to drive our mission forward. The combination of our cutting-edge technology with the expertise of Dr. Milyko stand to transform and modernize ABA service delivery.”

“I am thrilled to be joining Chris and the CentralReach team,” said Dr. Milyko. “CentralReach’s clear leadership position in the industry, the significant size of its client base, the quality of the team and the amount of investment it can put behind this offering made this a once in a lifetime opportunity I couldn’t pass up. We plan to leverage all of these resources to accelerate development and deliver the high-quality, evidence-based care that is so critical to serve the rapidly-growing number of persons diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) each year. I can’t wait to get started.”

This acquisition extends the significant investments CentralReach has made over the past 18 months to enhance its clinical software and service offering. Its 2018 acquisition of Chartlytics, the leading digital precision teaching platform, kicked off the increased investment in this area. Chartlytics added a talented team, including renowned Precision Teaching expert, Dr. Rick Kubina, BCBA-D, and its precision behavior measurement and real-time decision making to CentralReach’s platform. The company followed that investment with the launch of its research, content and educational arm – CR Institute – to spearhead autism therapy research, develop and offer ongoing education with an ever-growing library of hundreds of continuing education courses, ABA consulting, training and much more, all with the sole purpose of propelling ABA therapy forward.

Pompano Beach, Florida – September 23, 2019 – CentralReach, the leading provider of end-to-end electronic health record (EHR) technology, practice management and clinical solutions that enable more than 80,000 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and behavioral disorders, announced today that Chief Executive Officer, Chris Sullens, has been named the winner of the Gold Stevie® Award for People-Focused CEO of the Year in the Fourth Annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

With over 600 nominations from organizations of all sizes, the Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. Sullens was selected as the Gold winner at a gala ceremony on Friday, September 20th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. 

Since joining CentralReach in 2018, Sullens refocused the company’s efforts around four core pillars: hiring and developing mission-driven people, evolving its products through speedy innovation, transforming clients and employees into raving fans, and continuously investing in the company’s systems, processes and structure. Through these pillars, he has cultivated a culture of collaboration, innovation and customer-centricity that has led to both triple-digit financial growth as well as a surge in positive employee growth with over 100 new hires, 30+ internal transfers and promotions and a reduction in churn by 67%. 

“I’m incredibly humbled to win this award,” said CentralReach CEO, Chris Sullens. “Culture is a priority for me at CentralReach because businesses don’t thrive on the expertise of a few but rather they succeed on the collaboration of the many. As CEO, it is my responsibility to ensure our team believes in our mission, feels good about the people they work with and the environment they work in and knows that they will be able to grow their career over the long term at CentralReach. We’ve assembled an absolutely amazing team of talented and passionate people who make CentralReach a great place to work and I want to thank them for their passion and commitment to our goals and to each other as we continue to realize our mission of helping our customers produce superior outcomes for people with autism.” 

This is not the first time CentralReach and Sullens have been recognized for their efforts as a great employer. Most recently, the company won NJBIZ Best Places to Work Award (#8), Most Innovative Company of the Year Award (American Business Awards), and Best in Biz Company of the Year. Further, Sullens maintains a 100% Glassdoor approval rating and is also a former winner of the People-Focused CEO of the Year from his time spent at WorkWave back in 2017.  

“In the fourth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by the Stevie winners who dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better, through training, software, programs, and more. We are pleased to celebrate them in 2019 and look forward to what they will accomplish in 2020,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and executive chairman of the Stevie Awards.

Pompano Beach, Florida – September 16, 2019 – CentralReach, a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solutions that enable Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and related disorders, today announced the rebrand and relaunch of one of its recently acquired end-to-end practice management and clinical solutions, Pathfinder Health Innovations, to CentralReach Essentials or informally, CR Essentials.

The relaunch of Pathfinder’s end-to-end solution designed for small and medium-sized practices (SMBs) comes at a time when the ABA market has seen an increase in the number of SMBs entering the space, with nearly 90% of organizations falling into this segment. As these organizations establish themselves competitively, they have similar needs but different operational processes than their enterprise counterparts and thus, require software tailored to those processes to effectively scale. The new CR Essentials user interface is designed to provide them with an easy-to-learn, easy-to-use solution with out-of-the-box best practice workflows to help them create efficiencies within their organization faster which ultimately allows them to improve both their bottom line and the quality of client care they can deliver.

CR Essentials will exist alongside CentralReach’s current enterprise platform, which is designed for larger, multi-location organizations that have more complex operational needs. While improving ease of use and reducing staff ramp time is important to organizations of all sizes, these enterprise organizations need additional tools to support their scale and growth, such as advanced reporting and analytics, API integration to 3rd parties and sophisticated, multi-location scheduling solutions for the hundreds or thousands of behavior technicians they employ. By dedicating resources to providing the right functionality and user experience to each segment of the market while offering a seamless way for clients to migrate from the Essentials to the enterprise platform, CentralReach allows organizations to make the right platform choice for their current stage of growth while ensuring that they never outgrow the platform as they increase in size and sophistication.

“Given the highly fragmented nature of the autism services market, one size does not fit all, and we are the only provider in the space that has the funding, team and resources to fully address the needs of all segments of the market,” said CentralReach CEO, Chris Sullens. “In addition to our 300 enterprise clients, we have over 700 small and medium-sized practices in the CentralReach family and are quite familiar with the challenges these organizations face. In particular, quickly onboarding staff, setting up payor relationships and optimizing scheduling workflow to maximize reimbursement levels is critical to early success for small businesses in this market. Our two-platform strategy allows us to dedicate product development teams and resources to the unique needs of each market segment, enabling us to evolve CR Essentials to meet the needs of our smaller organizations, while allowing our enterprise solution to stay focused on the needs of larger organizations. More importantly, we can bring value-added services, like our CR BillMax 3rd party billing solution and CR Institute content, staff training and programming offerings to CR Essentials users which further enable them to efficiently operate their business while focusing the bulk of their time on improving outcomes for their clients. With the addition of CR Essentials, we are doubling down on our mission to help clinicians produce superior outcomes for people with autism by providing the right platform to the right customer based on their needs, size and growth stage. ABA organizations can come to one place for all their software needs and that place is CentralReach.”

“When Pathfinder and CentralReach joined forces earlier this year, we knew that the next chapter in our combined organization was going to be an exciting one for our existing and future customers,” commented Tina Youngblood, former CEO of Pathfinder Health Innovations now serving as General Manager of CR Essentials. “With a majority of the organizations in the ABA space in the small and medium category, the ability to dedicate our focus and resources on the needs of this segment while allowing for a seamless migration path to CentralReach’s enterprise platform will allow us to serve this segment in a way that others cannot.”

CR Essentials is just the latest new solution that CentralReach has brought to market in the past twelve months. In the past 12 months, the company has introduced 5 new products and services including its powerful business intelligence and analytics solution, CR Insights and its expert managed billing services, BillMax Services.

Matawan, New Jersey – August 28, 2019 – CentralReach, a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solutions that enable more than 75,000 Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) clinicians and educators to produce superior outcomes for people with autism and other behavioral disorders, today announced the addition of Perry Pappas as Senior Vice President, Chief Legal & Compliance Officer to the CentralReach leadership team.

Pappas brings more than 25 years of experience to CentralReach and will spearhead and oversee all corporate compliance and legal efforts to support the company’s rapidly growing operations. These efforts include mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, securities, commercial contracts, licensing, technology transactions, corporate governance and more.

“I am very excited to welcome Perry to the leadership team and the CentralReach family,” said CentralReach CEO, Chris Sullens. “As our organization and the ABA industry at large enters its next phase of growth, we are committed to helping our clients shape and conform to the changing compliance landscape. Bringing in someone of Perry’s caliber and experience demonstrates the level of investment we are making to fulfill this commitment. Additionally, his vast experience in M&A will enable him to play a critical role in the expansion of our market share through strategic acquisitions.”

Prior to joining CentralReach, Perry was SVP, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of WorkWave. Before WorkWave, Perry was a partner in the law firms of Morrison Cohen LLP and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP. He also holds both a BS and an MS from Michigan State University and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan. Perry is listed in Chambers USA as a recognized practitioner in corporate M&A, and has broad experience in contracts, commercial law, intellectual property, privacy, GDPR and other compliance matters.

The announcement comes at a time when strategic acquisitions and compliance play an important role in the evolution of the company. Most recently, CentralReach acquired former competitor Pathfinder Health Innovations — the third acquisition in the past 12 months — to cater to the unique goals and workflows of small to medium-sized practices. In 2018, the company acquired the highly-successful managed billing services company Bronco Billing, now named CR BillMax Services, and real-time behavior change analytics software provider, Chartlytics – both of which contributed to CentralReach’s expanding and robust product portfolio.
