An HIE is all about data. And at IHIE, that valuable clinical data is housed in our clinical data repository, the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC). With over 13 billion elements of clinical data from the past 30+ years, the INPC is the nation’s largest interorganizational data repository and includes public health data and payer information, as well as data for patients such as lab results, radiology reports, CCDs, transcriptions, cardiology reports, and more. Our CareWeb application, one of first products developed by IHIE, gives customers access to the data that is securely housed in the INPC.
Indiana has a long history of health information exchange, shaped with the help of the Regenstrief Institute and IHIE. This history stems back to the 1970s when the Regenstrief Institute created the first Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. In 1993, Regenstrief created the INPC to better manage the data they were getting from the EHRs; then in 2004, the Indiana Health Information Exchange was founded as the non-profit organization to securely manage the INPC. One of the first services that IHIE launched was, CareWeb, the web-based application to give providers access to the data.
CareWeb, one of our core services, integrates within EHRs through Single Sign On to enhance usability. The application helps providers understand the full story of a patient by giving them searchable data from the repository, including community lab data. Accountable Care Organizations can use CareWeb with other care coordination services to help manage populations. Additionally, CareWeb helps community organizations support and coordinate services for at-risk and special needs patients. Visit our website for a complete list of participating CareWeb facilities.
A major driving force behind all our products and services, CareWeb is the essential application to access the vast amount of data stored in the INPC. By having easy access to patient data, providers can deliver better care while having the most up-to-date information at their fingertips.
