Health care IT company to create 400 jobs in North Carolina

November 19, 2019 GMT

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — A health care information technology company says it will create 400 jobs through a new operations center in central North Carolina.

Gov. Roy Cooper and Well Dot Inc. announced on Tuesday the investment in Chapel Hill, where the company already keeps one of its two headquarters. The other is in Massachusetts.

Cooper’s office says the center will be the chief location for Well’s clinical and health experts. Software developers, data analysts and corporate personnel also will work there. Well uses artificial intelligence for a digital platform it can offer employers so their workers can receive personalized treatment and meet their health goals.

The company could receive $3.4 million in payments over 12 years if it meets investment and job-creation goals. A special state committee approved that incentives offer earlier Tuesday.
