Congressional Leaders Can Look to Indiana for Innovative Approach to Health IT in Economic Stimulus Package
Date:1/28/2009

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaders in Indiana are encouraging Congress to consider its innovative, community-based health information technology (IT) program as a model for the rest of the nation as it infuses between $2-5 billion in health IT infrastructure as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This is the range between the pending House and Senate versions of certain health IT infrastructure funding recommended through this economic stimulus legislation.

A 2005 RAND Corporation study estimated that efficient exchange of medical records among doctors and hospitals in the U.S. also known as a health information exchange (HIE), would save $81 billion annually. Other estimates have put that figure as high as $450 billion per year. There is already a broadly utilized, enduring, successful and community-based HIE model being used in Indiana that leads to better patient outcomes, and a more informed, more effective and more affordable healthcare system.

There is a strong job creation and economic component to HIE. According to the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, investing $10 billion in the health information technology industry, which includes HIE, will create 212,000 jobs.

This HIE platform, implemented across the state of Indiana, enables health information to follow the patient, regardless of provider or health system. Created by the Regenstrief Institute, Inc, and operated by the Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE), both non-profit corporations, the HIE promotes efficient gathering, analysis and distribution of clinical information and has the potential to save lives, improve quality of care and reduce costs. The exchange securely connects 39 hospitals, 10,000 physicians and more than 6 million patients, delivering lab results, reports, medication histories, and treatment histories, in real-time, sent instantly to where they're
