Stratice Healthcare LLC, a developer of an electronic ordering platform for the health care industry, said Wednesday that it plans to expand its Carmel headquarters, creating up to 43 jobs by the end of 2017.
The company said it will invest $710,000 to reconfigure its 3,500 square feet of office space in the Carmel City Center. An additional 2,000 square feet is expected to come online by the end of the year to accommodate an expansion of the company’s e-prescribing platform, which allows health care providers to electronically transmit patient orders to a nationwide network of suppliers.
Stratice, which currently has 15 full-time employees, has begun hiring for IT, sales, marketing and other professional positions.
“Through our cloud-based platform, Stratice is poised to help lead the next chapter in innovation and interoperability for health care systems by forever changing the way home and durable medical equipment and supplies are prescribed for the end-user, which ultimately drives better patient care and outcomes," Stratice CEO and co-founder John Brady said in a statement.
Founded in 2010, Stratice produces eDMEplus, an ordering platform that electronically connects health care providers with home and durable medical equipment suppliers, filling patient orders ranging from oxygen and diabetic supplies to canes, crutches, wheelchairs and hospital beds.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Stratice up to $750,000 in tax credits based on the company's job-creation plans. The credits are performance-based, meaning until workers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
