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. How is the private developer going to repay the bonds. Is this going to be a toll road?

  2. As well as a Portillio'S!!!!!!

  3. A Lou Malnati's would be awesome!!!!!!!!

  4. We aren't broke. We just aren't willing to raise revenues for this that we should be raising them.

  5. OK. now that the state is taking illegal immigrants, willing or not. There is a major concern that needs to be addressed. First: School starts here in 3 weeks in most parts of the country and probably in Indiana. So is the state going to vaccinate these kids before they intermingle with our kids in school? The problem we are going to have here in the US and possibly in Indiana is that some of these kids could be carrying health issues or diseases that are pretty much eradicated in the US. This could cause a major health issue in the US. Second: Who is going to pay for this building disaster? We are flat out broke….. Down here in Texas, we have 14 counties that have been so swamped with kids, (numerous thousands of them), they are on the verge of financial collapse. Now this is happening in counties in New Mexico, Arizona and California. The system is massively overloaded. Swine flu has started back up in San Antonio since they have nearly 2500 kids that have been placed there and lice is rampant. Not to be insensitive, but we need to stop this madness. I find it amazing that we cannot take care of our veterans and yet give carte blanche to illegals entering the country. Recently an article mentioned that these kids and teenagers can get on planes without TSA screening? What? What the Hell???? Keep in mind this about protecting our national sovereignty as a nation and also living under the rule of law. Not only the terrorist threat that can come over the border. This is a deliberate and irresponsible and illegal act from administration ignoring the constitutional duty of protecting the borders and also upholding the supreme law of the land. This is a classic Cloward and Piven strategy to overload the system until it collapses.
