The Indiana Health Information Exchange Inc. is now ready to go national after its for-profit subsidiary licenses medical records and information software from  Indianapolis-based Regenstrief Institute Inc. The IHIE was spawned from Regenstrief in 2004 to make medical records available on an as-needed basis to hospitals and doctors around Indiana, and now serves 94 hospitals in Indiana and 25,000 physicians in 17 states. Those services are known as the Indiana Network for Patient Care and DOCS4DOCS. The IHIE is now looking to raise about $20 million over three years to take the services around the country, where federal incentives are spurring hospitals and doctors to exchange medical records digitally. “Health care is an information business,” said Dr. Bill Tierney, CEO of Regenstrief. He added, “This new level of partnership with IHIE and its new for-profit subsidiary allows us to impact the lives of Americans living far beyond Indiana’s borders.”

Indianapolis-based StepStone Angels has formed a chapter of angel investors in Bloomington. The group was kickstarted by Ron Walker and Dana Palazzo of  Bloomington Economic Development Corp. and will be led by Tony Armstrong, CEO of Indiana University Research & Technology Corp. An initial meeting in February drew investors from Bloomington and Jasper. StepStone, formed in 2009, also has chapters in Anderson, Indianapolis, Lafayette and Warsaw. The group encourages presentations from life sciences and technology companies seeking $100,000 or more.

The top awards in local architecture this year all went to health care facilities. The Indianapolis chapter of the American Institute of Architects gave its excellence awards April 18 to Indianapolis-based Axis Architecture + Interiors for designing People’s Health Network clinic on the near-east side. Also receiving an excellence award was Indianapolis-based BSA LifeStructures for the expansion and renovation of Franciscan St. Francis Health’s Indianapolis hospital. And a third excellence award winner was krM Architecture+ of Anderson for its design of a health care simulation lab at Ivy Tech Community College.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
