Regenstrief Institute

Regenstrief Institute medical informatics research scientists comprise one of the largest medical informatics physician brain trusts in the U.S. They conduct research to improve health care by improving the capture, analysis, content and delivery of the health information needed by patients, their healthcare providers, and policy makers. The Institute's informatics group has pioneered international electronic message standards for medical records including the development of HL7, the standard for electronic data interchange in health care.  They also developed the Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) system, a standard nomenclature that enables the electronic transmission of clinical data from laboratories that produce the data to hospitals, physician's offices and payers who use the data for clinical care and management purposes. They are also an active player in the OpenMRS community.
