ATLANTA – Brightree has acquired Apacheta, with an eye toward further innovating the company’s mobile delivery and cloud-based software platform, and increasing adoption among provider customers.

Brightree’s and Apacheta’s platforms have been integrated since 2015.

“Apacheta solves many of the business challenges HMEs face in managing deliveries, particularly eliminating missing, lost or incomplete delivery information,” said Matt Mellott, CEO of Brightree. “It has already helped Brightree customers save significant time and money, and we look forward to investing in its continued innovation and scalability.”
Apacheta and its Media, Pa.-based employees, including CEO Gregg Timmons, will join Brightree.

Apacheta is Brightree’s third acquisition in the past 18 months, following Conduit Technology and AllCall Connect.

ResMed, which owns Brightree, will continue to evaluate where else the company’s offerings could be integrated within its larger software-as-a-service ecosystem.

“Adding a reliable market-tested mobile delivery platform to ResMed’s SaaS portfolio helps our customers work more seamlessly and provide a better experience for their patients,” said Raj Sodhi, SaaS president for ResMed. “In addition to driving further innovation of this platform, we will explore bringing this solution to other care settings and platforms that would benefit by having a delivery solution.”

ResMed has also acquired a number of companies recently—two in as many months: MatrixCare in November, and Propeller Health in December.

Terms of the Apacheta deal were not disclosed.
