NU Online News Service, June 28, 3:45 p.m. – The MIB Group Inc., Westwood, Mass., an association of about 600 life insurance companies that collects personal health information to prevent insurance application fraud, says it will sell immediate, “real-time” access to its database through a subsidiary, e-Nable.com Corp.

The standards e-Nable.com will use to distribute the data are based on the ACORD XML for Life standards, MIB says.

ACORD XML for Life is a set of standards that special translation programs can use to identify all the many different types of information in a life insurance database. Companies with different types of computers and database software can use the standards to share database information through the Internet.
