Dr. Maryann Choi, also a founding executive, will serve as Chief Medical Officer to continue Collain’s commitment to innovation and leadership in the LTPAC industry.
“Healthcare continues to evolve and challenge our industry. Now is the time to re-think and challenge the intersection of technology with actual LTPAC operations to succeed in the shift to PDPM, value-based care and personalized medicine,” commented Bobby Choi. “We are pleased to become part of the Harris family of companies with its deep experience, understanding, success and broad customer-base across the entire healthcare continuum, including the acute care, ambulatory, surgical and payor markets.”
Jerry Canada Jr., President of Harris Healthcare Group commented that, “The acquisition of Collain Healthcare represents a strategic expansion by Harris across the long-term and post-acute care continuum with a leading and innovative platform. We are excited to bring to this sector the Harris track record of unrivaled customer experience with ’software for life,’ partnering with customers to provide meaningful, long-term solutions in healthcare.”

Dr. Choi commented, “Harris and Collain will now deliver to our customers, and our entire sector, access to needed enterprise-level clinical and business solutions out-of-the-box. As a physician, operator and owner of senior housing myself, I know firsthand that our industry needs to make difficult decisions, and think outside-the-box to succeed—and Collain will be the ideal technology partner.” Collain Healthcare will continue to operate in the Austin, Texas area where it is rapidly adding to its team, including research and development, while aggressively pursuing additional growth and acquisitions.
