TAMPA — DAS Health will add 30 jobs to its Tampa headquarters by 2018 with an average salary of $55,130, the health IT provider announced Wednesday morning.

"Tampa has an exceptional talent pool, essential to delivering superior customer service and support to our clients," David Schlaifer, CEO of DAS Health, said in a release. "The quality of our local workforce combined with the outstanding support we received from the Tampa Hillsborough EDC, the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County and the state confirmed that expanding here instead of a regional office was the right decision."

The company, which focuses on medical IT systems, medical billing and consulting on improving clinical outcomes has one regional office in Las Vegas.

In return for pledging higher-than-average paying jobs, DAS received an incentive package through Enterprise Florida totaling $90,000 in qualified target industry incentives. The city of Tampa and Hillsborough County chipped in $18,000 toward incentives with the state contributing the lion's share of $72,000.
