Kaiser to cut 860 jobs after deal with IBM

San Francisco Chronicle, March 17, 2009

Kaiser Permanente is cutting 860 information technology jobs nationwide under a realignment that includes a $500 million deal giving IBM management duties at Kaiser's medical records data centers. Kaiser has inked a seven-year deal with IBM to maximize the performance of its data processing units, but the agreement puts 700 Kaiser jobs in jeopardy at data centers in California and Maryland.
