Anthem Inc’s move to build a new IT hub to support its growing healthcare focus is something of no surprise to those situated in Atlanta. Bringing up to 2,000 new IT related jobs to the region, the technology hub will ultimately aim to drive down healthcare costs through new technologies and processes to improve and implement high quality, patient centered care.

Encompassing over 20 storeys, the development will be located at Tech Square and is set to be built at the beginning of 2018, taking two years to complete.

“For more than 75 years, Anthem companies have invested in the Georgia workforce. Atlanta has become known as an innovation hotbed, with research facilities, incubators and start-ups in a highly concentrated area,” said Tom Miller, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Anthem Inc.

“We are thrilled to announce this collaboration with Portman Holdings in the construction of this ultramodern building that is designed to inspire cooperation and creativity and enable us to work smarter in an effort to transform healthcare through modernisation, digitisation, and innovation with the ultimate goal of delivering a better, more personalised experience for members of Anthem’s affiliated health plans,” he added.

“We’re looking forward to opportunities for partnerships that help transform health care and support exceptional consumer experiences. Additionally, this allows us to tap into the IT talent pipeline in this state.”

The new hub will support the development of new technologies to support patients in the delivery of disease management and the treatment of long-term conditions. Linking with the rise of health wearables, Anthem will also tap into this market and support patients who wish to take further control over their healthcare needs through the development of healthcare apps and services.
