Fort Wayne firm to open health info to patients

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

With electronic medical record systems proliferating, there’s information galore about patients. But it’s not so easy for patients to get at it. Now Fort Wayne-based NoMoreClipboard has been charged to design ways to fix that problem.

The company has been named the lead contractor on a $1.25 million grant from the federal Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. The grant was made to Indiana Health Information Technology Inc., a not-for-profit group coordinating statewide efforts to expand the use of electronic health records.

NoMoreClipboard is a subsidiary of Fort-Wayne-based Medical Informatics Engineering, which in the 1990s developed Med-Web, one of the first health information exchanges, or HIEs, in the nation.

“This [federal] grant will allow us to partner with several HIEs, hospitals and clinics to improve how data is accessed and shared,” said Jeff Donnell, president of NoMoreClipboard, in a statement. “We want to make it easy for people to be able to locate and manage healthcare information for their personal health care records, either for themselves, or for family members.”

The project will span 16 months and will focus on three specific areas - data portability, patient identification and authentication, and secure messaging. NoMoreClipboard will help develop standards-based policies and solutions that will be piloted by health care providers in urban and rural areas of Indiana.

  1. If you have never seen a house moved it is something you will remember your entire life. Indiana History is so important to future generation. Glad no one bulldozed our former President homes, i.e Ben Harrison's or Abe Lincoln, home for progress as an example. We must have stewardship of our past to educate the future generations of what our ancestors’ lived in and how they survived. Some may think it is a waste of money that progress should be the priority but many of us don’t!!! My family came to Indiana before it was a state. I want my son and daughter to know thier history. So to our nay sayer, I say save the home and move it.

  2. GIPC is one of the worst groups out there when it comes to Indy's pay-to-play political system. The group been used to shield the disclosure of things that might otherwise have to be disclosed if done by government.

  3. Seriously!?! Taking $70,000 from the tourism budget to save an old house? What a gigantic waste. It's not like the house has any historic significance. It's just a pile of bricks assembled into walls. Just think of all the programs, marketing, and other benefits that $70,000 could provide. Instead, HCT wants to help save a pile of bricks so it can become...what exactly? It's not like it's even being moved to a significant location. It's not a park. It's not a destination. Bulldoze the thing and move on with progress.

  4. Indiana does not like a big Federal Government. This denial is perfect because it keeps big government money and interests out of Indiana and allows private enterprise to step in and fix the bridge. This is the Tea Party philosophy perfectly at work. Oh wait, their selling bonds? Private enterprise does not want to step in a fix the bridge? Huh, I thought that was the fix to everything...

  5. Why didn't you mention that IRT opened Two Gentlemen of Verona?! [I don't really care, but I do like to jump on a band wagon of unfounded criticism].
