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.
