Healthx, Inc., a digital platform helping healthcare payers power their digital strategies, plans to expand its operations center, creating up to 40 new jobs by 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The company, which is owned by Charlotte, North Carolina-based Frontier Capital, will invest $200,000 to equip its current 18,000 square-foot office, upgrading technology infrastructure and business systems. Healthx, which currently employs 70 full-time Indiana associates, has already begun hiring information technology, sales, marketing and customer service personnel.
“Indiana and particularly Indianapolis supports growing technology companies,” said Kathy Kinder, President/CFO at Healthx. “Healthx values this excellence and appreciates the work ethic exhibited by tech-savvy Hoosiers. We think Indiana is the place for us to transform healthcare technology.”
“The health of Indiana’s economy improves when innovative companies like Healthx decide to hire more Hoosiers,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “And while today’s healthcare industry may be increasingly complex, companies like Healthx can balance that in Indiana with the tools to help companies grow, like our strong infrastructure, lower taxes and, of course, the team of Hoosiers ready to help them succeed.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Healthx, Inc. up to $475,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $135,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis supports the project at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
Founded in 1998, Healthx provides self-service, web-based solutions that connect healthcare payers, healthcare providers, consumers, employers and brokers, resulting in 16 million logins annually. The Healthx client base is comprised of Medicare, Medicaid and commercial health plans, third-party administrators and commercial carriers located in more than 40 states across the United States.
