Minority-Owned Telehealth Company Announces New Chattanooga Facility

KaZee’s Expansion Plans Driven by COVID Pandemic

Chattanooga, TN, March 23, 2021 --(PR.com)-- KaZee, a minority-owned Health Care Information Technology company, announced the opening of a new data center here to host its healthcare clients’ clinical data to help them maintain pace with the increasing demand for cost effective quality healthcare and adapt to the new norm of how healthcare is delivered efficiently.

“The COVID pandemic has propelled a rapid shift to telehealth establishing a new normal of how healthcare is being delivered and will continue to be delivered in the future,” says KaZee’s Chairman and CEO Albert Woodard. “Due to contagion and social distancing, the pandemic has revolutionized consumer healthcare. Increasingly healthcare practitioners are conducting many more patient visits virtually using telehealth systems.”

Woodard went on to say that KaZee – a Tennessee corporation – is well-positioned to help healthcare providers, practitioners and insurance companies function in this new pandemic-driven environment. “Having helped develop, implement and support one of the Nation’s first computerized electronic health record systems and one of the largest telehealth systems in the country working with the University of Texas Medical Branch over the past three decades, KaZee has the unique combination of knowledge and experience needed to help its clients adapt to the new norm in providing healthcare.”

He explained that Chattanooga, Hamilton County and North Georgia are ideal locations to locate a healthcare data center and expand a healthcare information technology company. “The area has high speed communications capabilities, an advance medical and healthcare community, a mature insurance industry, excellent education in the fields of healthcare, information technology and engineering and a skilled labor force that is very well qualified to support this type of work,” he says.

The new KaZee data center will be located at 807 East 16th Street. The company has similar facilities in Atlanta and Nashville and expects to continue to expand it operations in Tennessee which includes further advancing its long-term relationships with local banks, attorneys, hospitals and UTC and Chattanooga State.
