"ChenTech delivers real technology value by proving and continually refining offerings with physician and patient feedback from actual clinical use," said ChenMed CEO Christopher Chen. "We achieve superior ChenMed patient outcomes, such as achieving 38 percent fewer hospitalizations, and superior patient satisfaction levels as measured by Net Promoter Scores consistently averaging in the low- to mid-90s. These remarkable results for Medicare-eligible seniors could not be achieved without powerful, nimble and proprietary technologies pioneered by ChenTech."
ChenMed has experienced rapid growth, expanding to a primary care network of more than 35 locations in six states: Chen Neighborhood Medical Centers in Florida and JenCare Neighborhood Medical Centers in Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Virginia and Louisiana. ChenMed launched ChenTech in 2011 so that the company could begin sharing proven medical technology tools it had been pioneering for decades.
LED began discussing Louisiana expansion opportunities with the company in May. ChenTech has begun hiring professionals for the New Orleans software development center and will reach full employment in two to three years.
To secure the project, the State of Louisiana offered a competitive incentive package that includes the services of LED FastStart(TM), the nation's No. 1-ranked state workforce development program. ChenTech also is expected to utilize Louisiana's Digital Interactive Media and Software Development Incentive.
"We're thrilled to welcome ChenMed and their new software development center to New Orleans," said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. "The addition of high-paying, high-tech jobs demonstrates our increasing ability to attract innovative new firms into the market. ChenTech is an important addition to our growing technology scene."
"ChenMed's announcement of a major expansion of its ChenTech subsidiary is a double win for greater New Orleans," said President and CEO Michael Hecht of Greater New Orleans Inc. "Playing in both the medical and technology sectors, ChenMed is the archetype of the new New Orleans company: innovative, nimble and fast-growing. GNO Inc. welcomes the ChenMed team."
"We are tremendously excited to welcome ChenTech's expansion to Orleans Parish," said President and CEO Rodrick Miller of the New Orleans Business Alliance. "The selection of New Orleans for ChenTech's new software development center underscores the competiveness of the New Orleans market and further strengthens our Creative Digital Media industry cluster. ChenTech's plan to hire 50 people with an average salary of $83,000 contributes to the city's overall goal of creating quality jobs and wealth for our residents."?
