Advancing Patient Care and Driving Economic Impact, Indiana's Health Information Technology Innovation Cluster Serves as National Model
Date:2/22/2011

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Seventy-two start ups, 2,500 workers, and $202 million in company revenues are just three new ways to measure the progress of Indiana's health information technology (HIT) innovation cluster, a growing market and important part of the state's economy. 

These data, and more, are set forth in a new report, From Dishwashers to Digital Medical Records – Indiana's Leadership in Health Information Technology, released today at the national Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) trade show by BioCrossroads, Indiana's initiative for investment, development and advancement of the state's signature life sciences strengths.  The BioCrossroads report defines, for the first time, the HIT cluster as a specific sector of life sciences economic activity in Indiana, analyzing core assets and documenting a decade-long story of steady growth. The report is available at www.biocrossroads.com.

According to the BioCrossroads report, Indiana's HIT sector includes more than 72 growing companies (organizations that produce or use technologies that store, process, manage, and transmit health information, including patient data), along with active participation and collaboration from health plans, life sciences companies, academic institutions, philanthropic organizations, and state government that, working together, have bolstered Indiana's health IT industry  to make a real difference in the economy of the state and the health of its citizens.

"Indiana is at the forefront when it comes to the delivery of better healthcare through the use of better information," said David Johnson, president and CEO of BioCrossroads.  "This report is the first place that has staked out the fast-growing field of HIT as a worthy life sciences sector all on its own, and a driver of economic growth as well as higher quality healthcare."'/>"/>
