Strong Growth in Atlanta’s HIT Sector

According to a recent study, the Georgia-based HIT sector employs over 30,000 people in the state and the sector’s primary businesses are growing at around 40 percent annually. Of companies included in the study, 75 percent expect to add Georgia-based employees.

More than a dozen enterprises have been acquired by larger firms, further boosting capital investment in Georgia. 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.

Workforce Development

Nearly half a century ago, a group of HIT pioneers at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) formed the organization that would become the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). The mission of the group: improving patient services and reducing healthcare costs.

Today, Georgia Tech continues to provide leadership and education in developing HIT systems, and has been joined by resources statewide, including Emory University, Georgia State University, the University of Georgia, Georgia Health Sciences University and Morehouse School of Medicine. The Technical College System of Georgia has created programs to educate and train HIT professionals.

Building on Atlanta’s Strengths

Atlanta is among the fastest growing technology metro areas in the nation, with 13,000 technology companies employing over 260,000 technology workers. And the potential for new growth is stellar. With a solid base of software, Internet, medical device, vaccine development and telecommunication companies and more than 20 incubators, Atlanta is a hotbed for innovation and a hatchery for new technology startups.

The city’s bioscience community is equally active. It has grown substantially and is now being recognized as the Center for Global Health. Atlanta benefits from the headquarters presence of national and global organizations including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Cancer Society, Arthritis Foundation, CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere) and The Task Force for Global Health. As attention to health IT escalates, Atlanta has unmatched talent, corporate strength, university expertise and a rich history in HIT.

Facilitating growth of existing and relocating companies is the collaboration between entities committed to enhancing the city and state’s growth, which includes the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Technology Association of Georgia.
