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. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
