Atlanta is often referred to as the nation's health IT capital and is at the forefront of consumer digital health. There are over 200 health IT companies in Georgia and that number continues to rapidly rise. Atlanta-based companies include McKesson Technology Solutions, ranked as the world’s largest by Healthcare Informatics in their annual HCI-100 List.
According to the magazine’s survey, Atlanta companies have cumulative revenues totaling close to $4 billion. Metro Atlanta claims scores of small and medium-sized product and services companies, many tracing their heritage to the early industry pioneers that invested in and grew their firms in the Atlanta technology community.
This notable achievement is due to the vast assets of the city’s numerous HIT corporations, served and supported by the diverse resources of Georgia academic institutions and healthcare providers. Another vital component of the city’s strength is the highly trained professional HIT workforce provided by nationally prominent universities and medical schools, technical colleges and other training programs throughout Georgia.
According to a recent study, the Georgia-based health IT sector employs over 16,000 people in the state and the sector’s primary businesses are growing at a 40 percent rate. Of companies included in the study, 57 percent anticipate expanding over the next two years, with 75 percent expecting to add Georgia-based employees. More than a dozen enterprises have been acquired by larger firms, further boosting capital investment in Georgia.
