ChartSpan Medical Technologies, Inc. will bring 300 new healthcare jobs to downtown Greenville, SC. Following the recent closure of $3,200,000 in venture funding, ChartSpan has signed a lease for nearly 100,000 square feet of office space. The company will run its clinical support operations from the new location, making ChartSpan one of the largest employers in the downtown area.
ChartSpan’s technology platform empowers patients to manage their healthcare records and information easily and efficiently from their iPhone or iPad. The three year old technology start-up helps doctors and patients engage with each other through portals, mobile apps and chronic care services.
The healthcare company came to Greenville from Texas as one of 10 businesses accepted to the Iron Yard Ventures Healthcare Accelerator Program in 2013. Upon exiting the accelerator program, NEXT and the Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC) assisted the company in its effort to make Greenville its headquarters. A series of tax and job incentives from the South Carolina Department of Commerce and the GADC aided ChartSpan’s decision to stay.
During the past two years, ChartSpan has grown into one of the leading patient engagement companies in healthcare. The company’s patient technologies have become the most downloaded medical app in America. The company released its new patient engagement product suite on March 1 and has already signed more than $9 million in customer contracts.
“This is an unbelievably exciting moment in ChartSpan’s evolution,” said ChartSpan CEO and Cofounder Jon-Michial Carter. “We have a deep love and affinity for Greenville. The State Department of Commerce, the Greenville Department of Economic Development, NEXT and Greenville city leaders have helped us every step of the way. Our ability to expand in the downtown area of Greenville is a reflection of a remarkably strong and collaborative partnership established for businesses by NEXT and supported by the City of Greenville and the Greenville Area Development Corporation.”
“ChartSpan’s $3.2 million investment, and the 300 new jobs it will create, will have a huge impact in Greenville and across the state,” said South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue this partnership and watch them succeed here for a very long time.”
