Idaho Statesman:Boise’s WhiteCloud Analytics bought by North Carolina company

Boise-based health care technology business WhiteCloud Analytics announced Tuesday it has been purchased by Relias Learning, a North Carolina health care learning management system.

According to former WhiteCloud CEO Bob Lokken, the deal came after WhiteCloud began looking for “strategic acceleration” opportunities about six months ago. While WhiteCloud considered a ground-up expansion, Relias’ experience in sales and existing partnerships with more than 1,000 hospitals made it an obvious complement to WhiteCloud’s offerings, Lokken said.

“At the end of the day, (Relias) fit better than just about anything else,” Lokken told the Statesman.

He said WhiteCloud will remain in Boise (and, for now, under the WhiteCloud name) as the analytics arm of Relias. The two may integrate into a common brand sometime in the future, Lokken added.
