Clarian Health Plans will add rival Community Health Network to its list of providers approved for Clarian’s Medicare Advantage customers. Beginning Jan. 1, Clarian’s health plan customers are approved to see one of Community’s 700 physicians or receive care at one of its five Indianapolis-area hospitals. Clarian Health Plans, started in 2008 as a subsidiary of the Clarian Health hospital system, administers a Medicare Advantage plan in 32 Indiana counties.

Biomet Inc. narrowed its loss in the three months ended Aug. 31 as sales rose everywhere but in Europe. The Warsaw-based maker of orthopedic implants lost $18 million in its fiscal first quarter, down from a loss of $23 million in the same quarter a year ago. Excluding special accounting charges, the company would have turned a quarterly profit of $51 million, a 3-percent increase over the same quarter last year, when special charges also were excluded. Biomet’s total sales for the quarter rose 2 percent to $641 million, with a 5-percent advance in the United State and an 11-percent rise in international markets outside Europe. Sales in Europe fell 11 percent.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman and the Indiana Rural Health Association launched the Indiana Telehealth Network last week, a $7 million project that will connect 22 rural Indiana hospitals with fiber-optic broadband communication lines. The network is designed to grow the use of telemedicine, where patients in remote areas could have online consultations with specialty physicians in more populous areas. The Federal Communications Commission will fund 85 percent of the project, with local funds providing the balance. The hospitals in the network are in such towns as Monticello, Tipton, Boonville and Greencastle. Indianapolis-based Clarian Health and Community Health Network will also be connected to the rural hospitals.

INphoton Inc. and two researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine have received a $1 million Small Business Technology Transfer grant to commercialize its imaging services for pharmaceutical and life sciences companies. INphoton uses powerful light miscroscopes to analyze and produce 3-D images of activities in living cells within the human body. INphoton is led by former Eli Lilly and Co. executive Steve Plump.

The weekend shows with the ISO are anchored by Brahms’ Fourth (and final) Symphony. A new work created by composer Chris Brubeck for the ISO’s trio-in-residence Time for Three is added for good measure. James Gaffigan conducts.

"America’s Got Talent Live"

October 20, 2010

Oct. 22
Clowes Hall

I’m no fan of Jerry Springer—who hosts both the TV show and the tour—but I am a fan of the variety-show format. That largely bygone arrangement allowed for a wide range of performers to appear, exposing audiences to forms of entertainment that they perhaps hadn’t even considered enjoying.

The “America’s Got Talent” program coming to Clowes includes opera and pop singing, ballroom dancing, stunt-bike riding and more. A likely highlight: the black-light illusions of Fighting Gravity—one of those acts that Vegas builds whole theaters around. Details here.

Heartland Film Festival

October 13, 2010

Oct. 14-23
Various locations

While the stars are in short supply again this year (what’s the deal with that, Hollywood?), there are plenty of worthy films among the 101 being screened at this year’s Heartland Film Festival. At IBJ, we’ve spent the last month screening many of this year’s offerings. Watching them at home isn’t quite the same as seeing them on the big screen, but we think we’ve identified some of the best. You can find reviews of those here, and I’ll be adding more at Lou Harry’s A&E, my IBJ blog, which you can find here.

For the fourth consecutive year, Clarian Health’s Methodist Hospital made the list of the top-five hospitals that are part of U.S. academic medical centers. The University HealthSystem Consortium based its rankings on its annual Quality and Accountability Study, which includes 98 academic medical centers around the country. The study examines hospitals on such issues as safety, timeliness, effectiveness, efficiency, equity and patient-centeredness. The other four hospitals honored this year were the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.; the University of Utah Hospitals in Salt Lake City; the University Medical Center in Tuscon, Ariz.; and the Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, Pa. Clarian Health is a joint venture of Methodist Hospital and the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Community Health Network will add three slots to its family medicine residency program and restructure the program’s curriculum around the medical home concept. The Indianapolis-based hospital system has received $2.4 million from three federal grants to fund the changes. Community will use $1.3 million over five years from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop the medical home concept, which attempts to let one family physician coordinate all the primary care needs of one patient, rather than having patients on their own go to numerous doctors for primary care. A second $960,000 grant will allow Community to expand yearly family residents from 21 to 24. The three extra slots will all be filled by doctors trained in osteopathic medicine. And a third grant of $213,000 will help Community buy needed equipment to support its program expansion. Community is the second local institution in a month to expand its family residency program. In late September, the Indiana University School of Medicine said it would use $1.9 million in stimulus funds to add two slots to its program in the Lafayette area.

Researchers at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Wyoming have genetically engineered silkworms to produce artificial spider silk in quantities large enough to be commercially viable. The researchers are working with Michigan-based Kraig Biocraft Laboratories to commercialize the technology for medical, industrial and consumer applications. Spider silk has significantly higher tensile strength and elasticity than natural silkworm fibers. Notre Dame researchers claim the silk produced by their genetically engineered silkworms have qualities much closer to spider silk. In the medical arena, researchers hope artifical spider silk could be used to make suture materials, wound-healing bandages, or natural scaffolds for tendon and ligament repair or replacement. They think the artifical spider silk also could be used to make bulletproof vests, strong and lightweight fabrics for athletic clothing and improved automobile airbags.
