“The metro Atlanta region is recognized as the nation’s health IT capital, consistently delivering some of the most innovative technologies in this sector,” said David Hartnett, interim senior vice president, Economic Development, Metro Atlanta Chamber. “As indicated by this year’s more than $600 million increase in revenue earned by the companies on the list, we are growing the economy in this sector with the potential to create thousands more high-paying jobs per year.”
Alpharetta-based McKesson Technology Solutions once again topped the HCI 100 list at #1, while other Georgia companies improved their ranking from the previous year like Med Assets Inc, Greenway Health, Brightree, Navicure and Surgical Information Systems.
“This ranking underscores Georgia's dedication to growing the HIT industry,” said Amanda Shailendra, director, life sciences, IT and corporate solutions at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “With Georgia’s competitive business climate that includes a well-equipped workforce and critical mass of healthcare IT locations, our state is the ideal location for companies in this industry to grow and expand.”
The growth in revenues for Georgia’s HCI 100 companies mirrors growth trends in employment for the state’s Health IT sector. During the years of 2008-2013, Georgia's Health IT sector added 17.2 percent more technology workers according to TAG’s 2014 State of the Industry Report.
“Georgia is at the forefront of the health information technology sector with more than 225 Health IT companies based in the state,” said Tino Mantella, TAG President and CEO. “TAG congratulates the Georgia companies that made this year’s HCI 100 List. These companies exemplify the level of success and innovation that can be found throughout Georgia’s Technology sector.”
