eClinical Works is hiring 100 software developers as part of an effort to strengthen its patient engagement platform and population health solutions.  It’s investing $50 million to make that happen over the next 12 months.

It may take a while. The demand for IT professionals is rising and healthcare IT is contributing in a big way to that increase.

The allocation follows a $25 million investment for its patient engagement platform announced earlier this year.

Its first iOS and Android apps in the Healo platform connect patients to their electronic health records. They can also keep track of doctor appointments, medications and conditions. It is also designed to improve communication with providers. Other mobile health services will include scheduling physician appointments and solutions for when patients check in at doctors’ offices. A home monitoring tool is also in the works.

In addition to patient engagement, the company has developed services for Accountable Care Organizations.
