Kaiser Permanente, the nationwide integrated healthcare provider and payer based out of Oakland, has officially opened a new healthcare information technology center in Greenwood Village, Colo.

The five-story building will eventually house 700 IT employees for the provider, by the year 2015, with half of that already having started working at the new location. Kaiser is recruiting solutions architects, managers/directors, software developers, project/program managers, and programmers for 95 positions.

"As healthcare evolves, there is an increased demand for IT solutions and support to deliver quality patient care," Phil Fasano, executive vice president and chief information officer, Kaiser Permanente, said in a statement. "This new IT location is a center of excellence where best in class employees use technology to ensure the delivery of high-quality, affordable health care to Kaiser Permanente members living in Colorado and across the country."

Announced back in December, Kaiser has not specifically said what kinds of IT projects and operations will be run at the campus. Kaiser is well known for its personal health record (PHR) success, with My Health Manager, reaching more than four million users.
