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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
