Top 11 Highly Requested IT Skills

Health care giant Kaiser Permanente plans to open a technology campus in Englewood, Colo., in January, and will add 500 IT positions there by 2015.

The site "is intended to be a launch pad for our next wave of innovation," Phil Fasano, Kaiser's executive vice president in charge of information technology, told The Denver Post.

The new positions will bring Kaiser’s IT staff in Colorado to about 700. It employs about 6,000 IT staffers across the United States.

Marc Brown, a spokesman for Kaiser's Oakland-based Northern California region, told The San Francisco Business Times that it would be hiring programmers, systems support and software specialists, project managers and others at all levels of experience.

The Post also quotes Donna Lynne, president of Kaiser Permanente Colorado, saying:

"We are really excited about marrying together the advances in technology that we have in the organization with the basic delivery of health care because we think that is very much the wave of the future."

The managed care consortium operates the largest non-governmental medical record system in the world, according to Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper's office. Its HealthConnect electronic health record system manages files for more than 9 million members nationwide. It also offers members online appointment scheduling, prescription refills, lab test results and other features, according to the Yahoo post.
