Kaiser Permanente, the well-known, Oakland, Calif.-based integrated healthcare system, is opening an IT campus in midtown Atlanta, Ga., which will create approximately 900 jobs.
Kaiser’s new IT campus, 1375 Peachtree Street, will be 157,000 square feet. The organization has not clarified if it will focus on any particular technologies.
“We’re thrilled that Kaiser Permanente is bringing new jobs to Atlanta. Kaiser Permanente recognizes the Atlanta area as the ‘silicon peach’ — one of the fastest growing regions for information technology work,” Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said in a statement.
Kaiser’s reputation for advancement in technology has been established through the organization’s electronic health record, the largest non-governmental medical record system in the world, and its successful personal health record platform.
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC) received the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) annual Grace Award in recognition of its leadership in health information management.
