Company to create N.O. software development center

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana officials have announced that a health care company plans to expand its operations in the New Orleans area, adding several dozen new jobs.

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office said Wednesday that ChenMed’s creation of a new software development center in the city’s Central Business District will create 50 new jobs with an average annual salary of $83,000.

ChenTech, a ChenMed subsidiary, develops software products for doctors, hospitals and clinics that are primarily used to treat Medicare-eligible patients.
