The Regenstrief Institute in Indianapolis, which developed the data exchange technology being used by the Indiana Health Information Exchange, has licensed the technology to the exchange to market HIE services outside of Indiana. The exchange runs the state-designated HIE called the Indiana Network for Patient Care, and the accompanying Docs4Docs electronic results delivery service.

“This licensing agreement represents the single most significant transfer of discovery out of an academic medical informatics research setting to a commercial enterprise in the history of Indiana’s health information technology sector and the national evolution of health information exchange,” according to Regenstrief, which created the Indiana Network for Patient Care.

The network is a not-for-profit entity supporting in-state services. Consequently, it has created a for-profit subsidiary to market the HIE and electronic results services in other states. The subsidiary also may use discoveries from Regenstrief’s ongoing informatics research for commercial purposes. Regenstrief will continue to manage its electronic health records system that Wishard-Eskenazi Health and Indiana University Health use.
