June 10, 2010

Terre Haute, Indiana (June 9, 2010) — The Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC) is expanding to serve patients in Terre Haute and Clinton, Indiana. Union Hospital joins 60 hospitals serving more than 6 million patients throughout the state in a network that allows physicians to securely access necessary information to make decisions critical to patient care.

Launched in 1994 by the Regenstrief Institute, the INPC daily handles approximately 2.5 million secure transactions of clinically relevant data such as laboratory test results, medication and treatment histories, and other clinically important information in a standardized, electronic format. This information is critical to diagnoses, treatment and referral decisions and is now available to Union Hospital healthcare providers.

Union Hospital, a 380-bed community health-care facility with 2,400 employees, is the largest nonprofit healthcare provider between St. Louis, MO and Indianapolis, IN serving a broad range of patients from west central Indiana and east central Illinois. The INPC will fold Union Hospital into the nation’s largest health information exchange in the nation, providing important clinical information in a standardized, electronic format.

The INPC is the foundational technology for the services offered by the Indiana Health Information Exchange.  Today’s announcement supports the growing partnership between Regenstrief and IHIE to bring the technologies, expertise and customer support activities of these two organizations to create a meaningful patient-centric health information exchange to clinicians in Indiana.  This partnership provides communities, like those served by Union Hospitals with efficiency, quality and safety improvements that will help support even better patient care.
