ATLANTA, January 15, 2019 – Formerly based in Santa Barbara, California, BioIQ is now headquartered in Atlanta’s Cobb County, according to the company’s CEO Justin Bellante.
“We see this move as a great opportunity to tap into the healthcare and technology talent that Atlanta has to offer,” Bellante said. “And we’re very pleased to be in a position to bring to the city some 500 new technology jobs as well as more than $5 million in investments in Cobb County to help fuel the city’s growth and solidify its reputation as a tech mecca,” he added.
BioIQ uses advanced technologies and analytics to simplify health testing and immunization programs for health plans, employers and government organizations. Making healthcare more convenient by offering healthcare services at thousands of retail locations across the country, BioIQ empowers people to take action to improve their health.
BioIQ’s technology platform provides a single-source solution to drive health plan quality, cost savings, and value-based care initiatives. The platform configures and connects partner solutions–including national laboratories, diagnostics companies, digital health solutions, etc., via an underlying engagement, analytics and interoperability technology.
The company has had an office in Atlanta since 2015. It has successfully used the location as a launchpad for its national expansion, which also has been fueled by $26.5 million in venture funding in 2018 and a growing solution portfolio and base of clients. This expansion has created the need for more space and the company recently moved into new office space on Windy Ridge Parkway that is some three times larger than its previous location. The new, 18,000-square foot office, now BioIQ’s headquarters, currently houses over 100 employees — with room to grow as the company expands its footprint in Atlanta.
“Our new Cobb County headquarters is a reflection of BioIQ’s investment in its employees and commitment to bringing together talent, technology and innovation. Now, with a new influx of talent from the Atlanta area, we are on course to achieve our mission of positively impacting 100 million lives.”
BioIQ works with more than 35 leading health plans, including 7 of the top 10 plans–representing about 70 percent of insured lives in the U.S. BioIQ enables individuals to conveniently access care at over 16,000 locations, including leading retail pharmacies and lab testing centers throughout the country.
