November 25, 2015 News No Comments


Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (CPSI) announced this morning that it will acquire its main small-hospital technology competitor Healthland Holding Inc., which includes Healthland Inc., American HealthTech, and Rycan Technologies. Healthland has 350 hospital customers, while American HealthTech serves 3,300 skilled nursing facilities. Rycan has 290 hospital customers of its revenue cycle management system and was acquired earlier this year by Healthland.

CPSI will pay $250 million, 65 percent in cash and 35 percent in stock. The company will also take on $150 million in funded debt to complete the transition.

CPSI Board Chair David Dye will take the role of chief growth officer, TruBridge President Chris Fowler will become COO, and Matt Chambless will be promoted to CFO. Healthland President Chris Bauleke will remain in that role.

CPSI shares rose sharply on the news Wednesday, but are still 26 percent off their 52-week high.
