The technology of an Indiana company will be utilized by three Olympic teams for a easier access to medical records. I-DENTI-FIED Inc. has patent-pending health-care identifier system that will be used by the U.S. diving, synchronized swimming and tumbling gymnastics teams during the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

President and CEO Steve Wise says the technology allows the athletes to carry their health information and medical records with them in an ID card that is then accessed on site when needed through technology provided by I-DENTI-FIED.

“Using our ID, you can link to that medical record and when that ID is scanned or accessed via some technology that we provide, that health record is opened up to the provider to get information on you to treat you on your behalf,” he says.

Wise says he got involved with the Olympic teams through trainers for those particular areas that are associated with St. Vincent Sports Performance.

The trainers were looking for ways to have access to the records while at meets without having to re-create the files every time they left. Wise says his applications are also being used by first responders in Northwest Indiana and has been tested in disaster scenarios.

I-DENTI-FIED is currently located in the Purdue Research Park in Merrillville. Wise says as the medical industry continues to digitize medical records throguhout the country, his hope is to spread his technology for individual keeping and access throughout they state in various applications and eventually the entire country.
