Data driving innovation: Regenstrief CEO applauds collaboration in Indiana

Indiana has a unique combination of data resources and collaborative spirit that contribute to groundbreaking work to improve healthcare, according to Regenstrief Institute President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Embí, M.D., M.S., and other Indiana data experts. They discussed efforts to make these assets more widely available in a BioCrossroads Frameworx session.

Dr. Embí spoke about Regenstrief’s 50-year history of pioneering work in data, including the creation of one of the first electronic health record systems. He detailed the capabilities of Regenstrief Data Services to assist researchers seeking answers on how to improve healthcare.

When asked what makes Indiana unique when it comes to data, he said Indiana is home to one of the most robust health information exchanges in the nation. The repository for this data, called the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC), is managed and operated by the Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE). In addition, numerous government entities, academic institutions, health organizations and others share data with one another. Dr. Embí said this effort must continue, and Regenstrief will do its part to drive life sciences forward in Indiana.

During the Frameworx session, Shah announced a new directory to capture all of Indiana’s data and technology assets in one place, allowing for more access and collaboration.
