A team from Regenstrief Institute displayed its work with the state during MPH Data Day at the Indiana Statehouse. The event was organized by the Indiana Management Performance Hub (MPH) to highlight its partnerships with various state agencies and organizations and demonstrate how data plays an increasingly important role in state government.

MPH manages data from various state agencies and makes it publicly available. It works with its partners in various areas, including education and workforce, government transparency, Medicaid and the opioid crisis.

MPH has been working closely with Regenstrief through the Indiana Addiction Data Commons (IADC) to find solutions to the opioid crisis. The IADC is a partnership between several organizations, including MPH and Regenstrief, aiming to connect data from different sources to provide insight into the health crisis and address the problem from multiple angles.

“The goal of today was to demonstrate the potential of the IADC,” said Dan Hood, IADC program manager at Regenstrief.  “Through our partnership with the state, we hope to leverage data to improve outcomes for Hoosiers.”

This is the second year for MPH Data Day. Regenstrief was one of about 25 MPH partners who attended.
