Fishers lands HQ for healthcare-related company
Another company has decided to move its base of operations to Fishers. Healthiest Employers, a technology and health analytics company, plans to locate its operations center here and says it will create up to 90 jobs by 2017.
The company will invest $1 million to lease and equip 4,000 square feet of office space, which should be operational by early 2015. The company is located at 10100 Lantern Road.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered the company more than $1.3 million in tax incentives and up to $75,000 in training grants. The tax credits, however, are based on performance and the company will not receive them until Hoosiers are actually hired. The town of Fishers was also involved in the project to get the company to locate its center in Fishers.
“With the decision to locate their growth in Indiana, local firms like Healthiest Employer continue to demonstrate the health of our Hoosier tech community,” said Eric Doden, president of the IEDC. “The crossroads of technology and wellness meet here, with a business climate that is supportive and affordable, tax policies that encourage investment and a workforce that is committed to the hard work and innovation needed to keep Indiana a state that works.”
Healthiest Employers was founded in 2009 and is a privately held technology firm focused on population health. It collects and measures corporate health data worldwide. According to the IEDC, the company uses software to analyze medical claims and biometric and population health data to help employers predict expenses and cut health care costs.
“We work with employers in nearly every state, but Indiana is where it started for us,” said Rod Reasen, chief executive officer of Healthiest Employer. “We are committed to reinvesting in our state’s workforce and look forward to participating in the local software ecosystem that is garnering national attention. Indiana is fertile ground for harvesting software that lowers healthcare cost and increases productivity.”
“Fishers is excited about Healthiest Employers’ continued innovation and growth,” said John Weingardt, president of the Fishers Town Council. “As the company marks its accomplishments and outlines future opportunities, we are very pleased that the plans include Fishers.”
Healthiest Employer has already begun hiring for software development, business development and project management positions. Interested applicants may apply online at www.healthiestemployers.com.
