Local health technology company to add 84 jobs

Mar 21, 2017

A medical information technology company based in West Henrietta plans to expand and add more than 80 jobs. 

eHealth Technologies, which helps hospitals and other health care providers organize and share medical information, plans to add 84 jobs over the next three years.

That according to its president and CEO, Ken Rosenfeld, who says they will be adding a variety of positions including customer service and research and development jobs. 

“We need the people to support that expansion and also to add people to cover some of the additional capabilities we’re providing to these top health care institutions to ensure that they’re getting the clinical information they need for patients.”

Rosenfeld says that increasingly more medical records are saved electronically, but the challenge is organizing all of that information.

“It can be at a primary care physician’s office, it can be at a dialysis center,  it can be at a surgery center, it can be at an imaging center etc. and all of those pieces aren’t easily tied together; we make sure all of it gets tied together and then delivered to the medical center for that patient to receive advanced care.”

eHealth Technologies will invest $310,000  in its expansion and COMIDA , the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency has approved tax incentives for the project.
