Raleigh's Allscripts adding 350 jobs

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Allscripts, a leading developer of electronic health records, will expand its operations center in Raleigh, Gov. Pat McCrory announced Wednesday, adding 350 jobs in the process. 

The Chicago-based company plans to create 350 jobs in North Carolina by the end of 2017, the Governor's Office said in a news release, and invest $2.8 million into its Raleigh location. The jobs will be primarily in research and development.

"Allscripts is a premier employer that  understands what Raleigh, Wake County and North Carolina have to offer," said McCrory. "Its expansion is proof that the Triangle's technology hub continues to grow. We've got the qualified talent, strong business climate, and attractive quality of life that Allscripts and its employees need to succeed."

The company currently employs more than 1,000 people in Raleigh. The company tries to make it easier for doctors to manage health care data.

Allscripts has a major office building on Six Forks Road in North Raleigh. A news release from Mayor Nancy McFarlane said the jhobs will pay an annual wage of $75,800.

"Allscripts is creating solutions that are meeting the changing and future needs of healthcare by enhancing all aspects of electronic connectivity in healthcare," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "Our technology will enable patients to enter into the healthcare community and direct and control everything from their doctor visit to coordinating their post-hospital stay and rehabilitation. We are about improving patient care, eliminating wasteful dollars and aggregating insightful data that allows care givers to deliver the most effective treatments."

The project was made possible in part by an award to Allscripts from the state Job Development Investment Grant program, as voted by the state Economic Investment Committee. Receipt of the award is based on proof of job creation and other performance requirements. JDIGs are awarded only to new and expanding businesses and industrial projects whose benefits exceed the costs to the state, and which would not be undertaken in North Carolina without the grant.  

Allscripts is eligible to receive up to 12 annual grants equal to 41 percent of the state personal income tax withholdings from the eligible new jobs created since the date of the initial award. Receipt of each annual grant is based on state-certified proof that the company has fulfilled incremental job creation and capital investment requirements. Over 12 years, the JDIG award could yield aggregate benefits to Allscripts of up to $5,353,500.
