Therapy Partner, a national leader in providing online technology for the needs of clinicians in private practice (psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists), has launched version 3.0 a progressive, single device application, for complete practice management. Therapy Partner 3.0 has a user interface that is intuitive and is driven by 'Book-Bill-Document' proprietary technology.

Dr. Jessica Dolgan, company CEO and licensed psychologist, states that Therapy Partner 3.0 "was designed to be task driven, in that the primary tools clinicians access through Therapy Partner 3.0 are based on their most frequent tasks and activities in their clinical day. Our goal was to develop an application that is fast, clean, intuitive, and easy, allowing our clinicians to focus on clinical care." 3.0 sales support Dr. Dolgan's vision, with an immediate and continued spike in sales noted since the products' release.

Therapy Partner 3.0 boasts an impressive suite of features from a new intuitive and easy to use interface including: Progress Notes, Integrated Calendaring/Patient Scheduling, Comprehensive Billing, Automated Statements, Credit Card Processing, and more. The new proprietary "Book-Bill-Document" feature allows clinicians to easily book clients for appointments, bill multiple sessions across multiple days with one click using the "Quick-Bill" feature, and allows providers to quickly add a progress note. Therapy Partner 3.0 is available for use from your smart phone, tablet, and computer. Comprehensive state of the art storage of patient and financial information are included in the newest version of Therapy Partner 3.0.

Therapy Partner continues to prove itself as a national leader in the development of technology for clinicians in private practice. 30 percent of Therapy Partner 3.0's new annual sales continue to come from current customer referrals of colleagues. In addition, clinicians using the product consistently show an increase in revenue of 20 percent in the first year of using Therapy Partner 3.0.

Representatives at Therapy Partner note that the clinicians increase in revenue is "directly related to having a single-device technology application that allows them to easily bill patients directly for service, consultation, and late cancels/no-shows."

Test Shown to Reduce Early Cancer Deaths is Now Available to Patients

Author: SignatureCLL
Dateline: Huntington Beach, California (HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.)  | Thu, 14 Nov 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SignatureCLL today announced that the first laboratory test ever shown in a clinical trial to improve one year survival rates in cancer is now available to patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The U.S. cancer physician who invented the test and the British scientist who used it to make discoveries in leukemia will offer the test under the trade name SignatuRx through their own, newly-formed laboratory company.”



ARTICLE:

SignatureCLL today announced that the first laboratory test ever shown in a clinical trial to improve one year survival rates in cancer is now available to patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (also called CLL). The U.S. cancer physician who invented the test and the British scientist who used it to make discoveries in leukemia will offer the test under the trade name SignatuRx(TM) through their own, newly-formed laboratory company.

The company's technology, in its generic form, was shown in a 777 patient randomized clinical trial to reduce early cancer deaths among relapsed CLL patients by identifying the most promising personalized chemotherapy treatment for each patient.

In the study, CLL patients were more than twice as likely to die within the first year after an initial treatment relapse if their next chemotherapy drug selections were not guided by the test.

According to test developers, the ground-breaking aspect of this clinical trial is that it is the first time any test was shown in a randomized clinical trial to reduce cancer deaths over any time period. Usually, cancer tests are judged only on the basis of accuracy - how reliably they identify a certain biological condition. Prior to this study, no cancer test was ever asked to prove that its use actually made patients live longer.

A randomized clinical trial is one in which two or more groups of patients are chosen at random to receive different types of treatment.

Principles of the SignatuRx(TM) test were conceived by Larry Weisenthal, M.D., Ph.D., a cancer physician and researcher, while he was working at the National Cancer Institute.

In a prospective, randomized clinical trial that followed CLL patients for over 10 years, Andrew Bosanquet, Ph.D. and colleagues found that CLL patients who relapsed after initial chemotherapy treatment were 2.5 times more likely to die within the first year following relapse if their chemotherapy drugs were selected without test guidance.

Results of the trial, officially designated LRF CLL4, were published in the journals Lancet and Leukemia.

"Survival at one year was significantly better in the personalized chemotherapy arm of the study," said Dr. Bosanquet. "The finding is of particular interest given that no other chemotherapy-only protocol has ever been shown to increase overall survival."

In the SignatuRx(TM) test, patients' own, living cancer cells are exposed to a wide range of different chemotherapy drugs to learn which chemotherapy drug or drug combination most effectively kills each patient's cells. Chemotherapy is then personalized for each patient by focusing on effective drugs and avoiding ineffective drugs. This is a noteworthy break from what Dr. Weisenthal calls "one size fits all" chemotherapy, still used by most cancer physicians, in which drugs are chosen on some rational basis that does not involve directly testing candidate drugs in advance against each patient's own cancer cells.

"The problem with that approach," said Dr. Weisenthal, "is that many drugs are available for treatment of CLL but patient responses to the drugs are hit or miss. Some patients might be helped by one drug and other patients by another but no drug ever helps all patients equally. Without testing, there is no way to know in advance which drugs are best for which patients."

Drs. Weisenthal and Bosanquet state that the SignatuRx(TM) personalized chemotherapy test can be ordered by physicians for their chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients from virtually anywhere in the world. Blood samples are sent to Dr. Weisenthal and Bosanquet's California-based laboratory by overnight courier where the cancer cells are tested for susceptibility to treatment with up to 30 different chemotherapy drugs and drug combinations. Test reports are available in 7 to 10 days.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is the most common form of leukemia in adults. Approximately 120,000 people in the U.S. are living with CLL and about 4,600 persons will die of the disease this year according to the American Cancer Society.

Detailed information about the clinical trial and about SignatureCLL is available on the company's website: http://www.signaturecll.com/ .

Diabetics and Surgery: A Few Common Hazards to Avoid

Author: Neuro Alert
Dateline: White Plains, New York (WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.)  | Thu, 12 Sep 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Diabetes is an increasingly common medical condition afflicting millions of people across the U.S., says Neuro Alert. This debilitating disorder causes excess glucose (a type of sugar) to build up in the blood. Patients with diabetes are more susceptible to infection and run a higher risk of developing certain disorders.”



ARTICLE:

Diabetes is an increasingly common medical condition afflicting millions of people across the U.S., says Neuro Alert. This debilitating disorder causes excess glucose (a type of sugar) to build up in the blood. Patients with diabetes are more susceptible to infection and run a higher risk of developing certain disorders.

Now, let's take a quick look at the statistical data provided by the American Diabetes Association.

Diabetes Statistics:
* 25.8 million children and adults in the United States (over 8.3% of the population) have diabetes.

* Sadly, 7 million people are unaware that they are suffering from this
debilitating disease.

* 1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years
and older in 2010.

* Total costs of diagnosed diabetes - $245 billion.

Let's face it: The statistics above are quite staggering.

In addition, chronic complications caused by the disease may eventually increase the need for surgical intervention. It is important to know that diabetics may not only require a surgical procedure, but can also develop serious complications DURING surgery. Therefore, surgeons and anesthesiologists operating on diabetics, should familiarize themselves with all the potential risks associated with this disease and take all the necessary precautions to protect their patients.

Here are some of the risks diabetic patients may face during or after surgery:

* Poor or slow wound healing;

* Infection (i.e. would infection, urinary tract infection, pneumonia, or an infection caused by a surgical incision);

* High blood glucose or low blood glucose;

* Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic coma (HHNKC) - a serious complication often occurring in those who are insulin dependent. HHNKC is usually caused by elevated blood glucose levels..

How to alleviate risks during surgery:

Assuming that surgery is inevitable, every diabetic patient should know that a thorough pre-operative assessment is crucial for their safety and well-being. Comprehensive pre-operative evaluation combined with effective post-operative management may dramatically improve clinical outcomes.

Physicians should carefully review patient history, determine what the potential risks are, find ways to avoid complications and establish the safest method of administering anesthesia and conducting surgery. By taking all the necessary precautions, a patient will have the best chances for a successful operation.

How diabetics could benefit from Intraoperative Monitoring during surgery:

"All surgical patients, especially diabetics, should be aware that there are ways to avert potential risks to their nervous system and ensure a successful outcome," says Dr. T.V. Seshan, the founder and clinical director of Neuro Alert in White Plains, N.Y. - a healthcare organization providing intraoperative neuromonitoring services for surgeons and hospitals across the country. "Neuromonitoring is a critical technical procedure that involves the use of electrophysiological methods to monitor nerves, spinal cord and certain parts of the brain. A lot of diabetic patients might benefit significantly from intraoperative monitoring and avoid potential damages or disability during surgery."

Neuromonitoring has emerged as a powerful tool to detect, treat or prevent accidental injuries during surgery. This sophisticated state-of-the-art tool saves lives and continues to gain popularity among surgeons of all specialties.

About Neuro Alert:

Neuro Alert is a physician-owned and operated company providing intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) services for surgeons, surgical groups and hospitals since 2006. The rapidly-growing Westchester NY-based organization was founded by Dr. T.V. Seshan - a renowned physician, specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation, who has been actively involved in intraoperative monitoring over the course of 30 years. The simple yet crucial monitoring procedures, offered by Neuro Alert, are set up to detect any neurological deficits during major surgeries, allowing surgeons to gain instant feedback about their patient's condition and avert potential adverse affects.

Neuro Alert consists of a team of experienced and highly-skilled physicians and technical professionals who work together to enhance treatment precision, reduce physician liability and ensure patient safety.

Heart Imaging Technologies Announces the Release of its Web-Based Cardiac Echo Reporting Module

Author: Heart Imaging Technologies
Dateline: Durham, North Carolina (DURHAM, N.C.)  | Tue, 10 Sep 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Heart Imaging Technologies (Heart IT), the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation, announced today the release of the WebPAX(R) cardiac echo reporting module.”



ARTICLE:

Heart Imaging Technologies (Heart IT), a global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation, announced today the release of the WebPAX(R) cardiac echo reporting module.

The WebPAX(R) product line offers leading edge medical image management and distribution platforms that enable the viewing of all medical images, including Radiology and Cardiology images, on the web, on a zero-footprint basis, and 100 percent diagnostic quality. The newest addition to the WebPAX line-up is the web-based cardiac echo reporting tool.

Hiram Perez, VP of Sales & Marketing stated: "Cardiologists who read cardiac echoes have long struggled with the fact that they have to be physically at the hospital in order to read an echo. Often times they have to make long drives at night or on holidays to have access to the images and reporting tools. Some solutions have tried to provide remote reading capabilities but they require cumbersome client software that is difficult to install/maintain and it seldom works well."

Perez added, "The WebPAX system is 100 percent web-based and 'zero-footprint,' meaning it does not require any client software or plug-ins. By combining the ability to view diagnostic quality images with the ability to report on those images, we are giving cardiologists the capability to read echo's from any location on the globe."

The WebPAX(R) cardiac echo reporting module is part of the overall WebPAX CVIS Solution, which includes a listener for enterprise hospital order and ADT feeds that automatically prepopulate patient demographics and billing codes into the echo reports. After the images have been acquired, the DICOM structured report (SR) interface automatically imports the quantitative measurements made by echo technicians, thereby protecting physicians' time for making the actual diagnosis. Cardiologists can then quickly complete the report using predefined templates and pick-lists, combined with a WYSIWYG user interface (what-you-see-is-what-you-get).

Once the report is finalized, WebPAX(R) CVIS transmits billing information electronically, and then distributes the report to the EMR via an HL7 message. The report can also be automatically sent to referring physicians via fax. Moreover, the entire diagnostic-quality image dataset can be embedded into the EMR via a secure web browser link, thereby satisfying Federal Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements. WebPAX CVIS significantly improves the cardiologist's workflow and the ability to deliver quick, effective, medical care to patients. Now cardiologists have the freedom to read echo's from home, a remote clinic, or anywhere else, yet remain fully integrated into their hospital's overall enterprise IT environment.

About Heart Imaging Technologies:

Founded in 2000 and headquartered near North Carolina's Research Triangle Park, Heart IT is a global leader in the medical image web enablement field. Their flagship product, WebPAX(R) is the first FDA approved zero foot-print medical image workstation. It provides web-based medical image management technology and services to health care systems, large hospitals and private clinics as well as drug and device companies sponsoring multi-center clinical trials. Worldwide, WebPAX systems currently provide secure web browser access to over one billion medical images.

WebPAX v8 – The Fastest, Most Technologically Advanced Zero-Footprint Medical Image Viewer Yet

Author: Heart Imaging Technologies
Dateline: Durham, North Carolina (DURHAM, N.C.)  | Tue, 16 Jul 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Heart IT today announced the release of Version 8 of their flagship products: WebPAX PACS and Universal Viewer. Heart Imaging Technologies is the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation.”



A R T I C L E:

Heart IT today announced the release of Version 8 of their flagship products: WebPAX PACS and Universal Viewer. Heart Imaging Technologies is the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation.

The WebPAX(R) product line offers leading edge medical image management and distribution platforms that enable the viewing of all medical images, including Radiology and Cardiology images, on the web, on a zero-footprint basis, and 100 percent diagnostic quality.

The newest release of WebPAX offers a number of key features and enhancements, which are all designed to improve the workflow of the Cardiologist and Radiologist reading medical images.

Brent Reed, CTO stated: "It's now commonplace for physicians to make their primary reads outside of the physical walls of the hospital. Version 8 leverages brand new technology which optimizes that experience."

Reed added, "For example, Cardiologists who read Echo's at home will now be able to navigate all series of a study in quick succession comparable to how they view them through standalone workstations. V8 changes the way images can be accessed by physicians and truly has the potential to improve the quality of care for patients."

Version 8 offers an array of improvements in admin tools, viewer tools, image management, as well as patient management. One of the primary benefits of WebPAX version 8 is that it increases the speed by which medical images can be viewed on the web independently of the available bandwidth.

Michael Parsons, Director of Software Development, said "WebPAX version 8 is our most effective and comprehensive release yet. As a web-based medical imaging viewing application, one of the greatest challenges we face, is facilitating the viewing of medical images over the bandwidth that is available to the customer, regardless of location. In Version 8, through the utilization of HTML 5 technologies and increasing the efficiency of our code, we have been able to significantly improve the speed by which the medical images can be loaded and displayed."

Intraoperative Monitoring as a Crucial Component of the Spinal Surgery

Author: Neuro Alert
Dateline: White Plains, New York (WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.)  | Wed, 26 Jun 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Spinal surgery involves a wide variety of complex procedures, according to N.Y.-based Neuro Alert. There is a potential for major neurological deficits if they are not recognized during surgery, so effective corrective action can be taken quickly. It goes without saying that early detection of potential complications is crucial for patient safety.”



A R T I C L E:

Spinal surgery involves a wide variety of complex procedures, according to N.Y.-based Neuro Alert. There is a potential for major neurological deficits if they are not recognized during surgery, so effective corrective action can be taken quickly. It goes without saying that early detection of potential complications is crucial for patient safety.

Therefore, any tool or technique that can prevent or reduce the rate of intraoperative injuries holds tremendous appeal for patients and surgeons alike.

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in intraoperative neurophysiological neuromonitoring (IONM) procedures designed to alert surgeons of potential damage to the nervous system during surgery, and help them rectify the situation. Real time monitoring assists surgeons and anesthesiologists with assessing neural structures, including the neuromuscular junction, peripheral nerve, spinal cord, brainstem, and cerebral cortex. Conducted by an on-site technician and remote interpreting physician, IONM can make spinal surgeries safer and prevent neurological deficits and/or morbidity.

Why is IONM so Important?
Oftentimes, spinal surgery involves the following procedures:

1) Decompression of the spinal nerve roots and/or the spinal cord.

2) The use of instrumentation (i.e. plates, screws, rods, cages, etc.).

3) Deformity Correction (Scoliosis, Kyphosis, spondylolisthesis).

Possible complications may include damage to the spinal cord and nerve roots. As a result, the patient can develop radiculopathy (spinal nerve root injury) or myelopathy (spinal cord injury).

Traditionally, surgeons have relied on X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to check the placement of hardware during surgery.

"Unfortunately, imaging techniques do not always identify improperly placed hardware, damage to nerve tissue, or small fractures of certain parts of vertebra," says Dr. T.V. Seshan, the founder and clinical director of Neuro Alert, a Westchester N.Y.-based healthcare organization providing neuromonitoring services for surgeons, surgical groups and hospitals.

"Evidence suggests that IONM has proven to be more effective in instantly spotting certain types of neurological damage. Furthermore, it is easy-to-use and cost-efficient. IONM is commonly used for spinal fusion, total disc replacement, scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, pain stimulator placement, spinal tumor resection, and other treatment procedures."

How Does it Work? When a patient undergoes spinal surgery, a monitoring technician places wire electrodes on his/her limbs. Electrodes are also placed on the surface of the skull, over the area of the brain that receives the impulse from the limb. A technician uses sophisticated equipment to monitor the electrical activity along the peripheral nerves, spinal cord and in the brain.

This activity is being recorded as wave form and used throughout the whole procedure. Any significant change in the wave forms prompts the surgeon that there might be potential damage to the neuromuscular system. That's when the surgical team can take immediate action, averting irreversible injury or post-operative complications.

In addition, IONM serves as a better and more reliable alternative to the neurological evaluation when a patient is under anesthesia and not capable of undergoing face-to-face examination. In fact, it may be dangerous to wake up patients suffering from serious conditions. Some individuals may negatively respond to the wake-up test, due to age or mental status. Besides, it can lengthen the time of surgery and does not properly evaluate nerve function.

"During spinal surgery, the key blood vessels, nerve roots and spinal cord are deemed to be at risk for serious injury," adds Dr. T.V. Seshan. "As spinal surgeries continue to evolve and minimally invasive procedures become more prevalent in the surgical field, it is quite likely that the value and significance of neuromonitoring will continue to grow. We are hoping that eventually IONM will become a routine part of all neurosurgical procedures where the neurological structures may be at risk of injury."

Due to the fact that intraoperative monitoring is a critical tool for assessing the nervous system, every member of the monitoring team should undergo intense training and develop the experience needed for this challenging job. The monitoring team usually consists of neurophysiology technologists and interpreting physicians who perform live remote monitoring to provide instant feedback on a patient's condition and effectively coordinate the process with the surgical team.

Neuro Alert Explains the Advantages of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM)

Author: Neuro Alert
Dateline: White Plains, New York (WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.)  | Tue, 11 Jun 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “According to Neuro Alert, Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM), also known as surgical neurophysiology, involves continuous monitoring of muscle, nerve, brain and spinal cord functions during a wide range of complex surgical procedures.”



A R T I C L E:

According to Neuro Alert, Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM), also known as surgical neurophysiology, involves continuous monitoring of muscle, nerve, brain and spinal cord functions during a wide range of complex surgical procedures.

IONM plays a vital role in detecting, preventing and reducing the incidence of neurologic complications. These complications may arise as a result of brain, spine, vascular, cardiovascular, orthopedic and ENT surgeries and go unnoticed without proper monitoring. The timely neurophysiological assessments may ward off impending injury and enable surgeons to take corrective action while the patient is still in operating room.

There are two primary purposes for IONM:
1. Techniques used to identify impeding damage to the nervous system.
2. Techniques used to map the structures of the nervous system.

"Oftentimes, major surgeries place the nervous system at risk. Therefore, neuromonitoring is a rapidly growing field, gaining enormous popularity among surgeons, surgical teams and hospitals across the country," says Dr. T.V. Seshan, the founder and clinical director of Neuro Alert, White Plains, N.Y.-based company providing neuromonitoring services for healthcare professionals. "In fact, it is becoming standard of care for many neurosurgical procedures. When it comes to influencing patient outcomes, the value of effective, real-time neuromonitoring in undeniable."

So, here are the some of the main advantages of using IONM during surgery:

- IONM is a set of minimally-invasive and cost-effective techniques designed not only to protect patients and avert potential injury, but also dramatically reduce physician liability.

Real-time neuromonitoring leads patients to better clinical outcomes, due to the live feedback given to the surgical team with regards to the status of the nervous system.

- Neurophysiological monitoring is being performed by a highly-trained and certified neurotechnologist who works in an operating room alongside surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists. The technologist uses computerized equipment to monitor the electrical signals coming from the brain, spinal cord, cranial or peripheral nerves, and muscle.

- The whole process is being supervised by licensed, board certified physicians. If serious or even minor complications occur, the monitoring team - consisting of the neurotechnologists and physicians - will instantly alert the surgical team, allowing them to take corrective action before neurological injury becomes permanent.

"Intraoperative monitoring is more than just a safety net for clinical outcome or liability-it's an important practice of medicine that involves coordination and teamwork to maintain integrity of neural structures and, ultimately, quality of life," says Karthik Seshan, director of operations and business development at Neuro Alert. "It is a rapidly evolving field, with constantly developing technological and clinical advances. As a result, we see increased demand in the healthcare market for these useful diagnostic and navigation tools."
