Hospitals find they can pay less at time of acquisition, save money while in use and cut their replacement costs by as much as one third with ETL Listed LED TV products now available from Imagenable, LLC.

Architects and designers are praising the move to stylish, light weight, super thin LED TVs from Imagenable, LLC. Facilities striving for LEED certification gain great value from lowered power consumption and extended lamp life of LED televisions. At only 1.6 inch thick LED TVs can be decoratively placed and even with mount, be within ADA Accessibility Guides.

The LED TVs are mercury free, run cooler and use up half the energy of most standard LCD TV products. So, the benefits are lower costs, less waste and more efficient products. The earth, the manufacturer and the consumer benefit.

Only Imagenable, LLC offers to hospitals and dealers a complete offering of Energy Star 4.1 rated LED/LCD TVs for healthcare.

"Eventually, all healthcare TV providers will offer LED products, but for now, Imagenable is proud to lead the way with energy efficient, mercury free TV products for healthcare facilities," says Richard Bray, Owner of Imagenable, LLC. "Hopefully, the days of the metallic looking LCD TV are numbered as hospitals will continue to move toward sleek, stylish and efficient LED TVs."

ContinuLink Health Technologies, a Leader in Web-based Home Care Software Responds to Regulatory Change with Rapid Fire Solution

Author: ContinuLink Health Technologies
Dateline: Atlanta, Georgia (ATLANTA, Ga.)  | Fri, 23 Jul 2010

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ATLANTA, Ga. -- ContinuLink, a leader in Web-based home care software understands the needs of their users. Within four days of a new CMS Regulation regarding PECOS, ContinuLink users were automatically having their physicians PECOS eligibility checked though our system. ContinuLink believes they were the first system in the country to have integrated real-time PECOS support.”



A R T I C L E:

ContinuLink, a leader in Web-based home care software understands the needs of their users. Within four days of a new CMS Regulation regarding PECOS, ContinuLink users were automatically having their physicians PECOS eligibility checked though our system. ContinuLink believes they were the first system in the country to have integrated real-time PECOS support let alone with cross verification of provider name with NPI and PECOS files to assure claims are not rejected incorrectly.

CMS established Internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) as an alternative to the paper (CMS-855) enrollment process. Internet-based PECOS allows physicians, non-physician practitioners and provider and supplier organizations to enroll, make a change in their Medicare enrollment, view their Medicare enrollment information on file with Medicare, or check on status of a Medicare enrollment application via the Internet. The machine readable file for this initiative was released by CMS on Thursday June 24th.

"Within a day of the CMS file release on the new PECOS initiative our programmers were already working to fully integrate a real-time PECOS support tool with cross verification of provider name. This was ready and rolled out to our users the following Monday June 28th, an astonishing 4 days after CMS released the initial file. This highlights the strength of using a centrally hosted Web-based system like ContinuLink where updates and system enhancements can be rapidly and seamlessly rolled out, without user intervention and without interruption of service," stated ContinuLink CEO Satish Movva.

In addition to the PECOS enrollment and Physician name cross verification, ContinuLink also enhanced the system to automatically take pending enrollments into account. Two days later, on June 30th additional functionality was added to ContinuLink to give real time verification of new physicians as new referrals or physicians were entered into the system.

One ContinuLink customer, Sarah Ahmed of Fresno California stated, "ContinuLink had the solution for PECOS implemented before we even thought to raise the question to them! We came in on Monday morning thinking as most home care providers did that we have to manually check each physician by hand and all of our physicians were already automatically checked for PECOS eligibility by ContinuLink."

About ContinuLink:

ContinuLink, Your Link to The Continuum of Care(TM), is a software solution for health care businesses including Home Health Care, Hospice, Private Duty, and Supplemental Medical Staffing. With its reliance on open Web technologies, ContinuLink is well ahead of any other software in the industry.

A Sharp Alternative to Healthcare TVs

Author: DEHCO Commercial
Dateline: Thu, 30 Jul 2009

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ELKHART, Ind. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Paradigm Multimedia has introduced their next-generation healthcare interface with ProTune Technology - the HC20. This product, designed for patient in-room television entertainment systems, is about the size of a deck of cards and will radically change the way healthcare TVs are purchased.

A R T I C L E:

ELKHART, Ind., July 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Paradigm Multimedia has introduced their next-generation healthcare interface with ProTune Technology - the HC20. This product, designed for patient in-room television entertainment systems, is about the size of a deck of cards and will radically change the way healthcare TVs are purchased. Paradigm Multimedia and DEHCO Commercial have recently teamed up and are changing the rules for healthcare TVs.

Dehco DEHCO Commercial, a division of DEHCO, Inc. based in Elkhart, Ind., specializes in providing turnkey solutions for the healthcare, hospitality and education markets, offering some of the best known flat screen television brands.

"Our network of sales, service and distribution centers around the United States make this alliance with Paradigm a perfect fit," said Matt Pletcher, EVP of Business Development, DEHCO, Inc. "I am excited about the potential that the Paradigm solution presents to us for diversification into new markets."

By combining Paradigm's own HC20 technology with LCD TVs manufactured by Sharp, the result is a pillow speaker-ready TV system that saves you from spending that extra 40 percent for typical healthcare TVs.

Dick Bray, President, Imagenable, Inc., a nationwide healthcare television integrator, commented, "Television systems typically sold to healthcare institutions are very expensive and filled with features not necessarily required. The cost effective Paradigm solution is exactly what this industry is looking for."

HC20 technology works with all standard nurse call systems. Alongside its easy installation and reliable operation, these TV systems are designed to be controlled by the healthcare standard - the Curbell pillow speaker.

Ed Baron, Business Development Manager, Paradigm Multimedia explains, "Our HC20 technology offers an inexpensive pillow speaker TV control that has the skilled nursing and rehab centers extremely excited."

"Our affordable solution provides their patients with audio privacy and reduces hallway noise created from blaring TVs. Thanks to our alliance with DEHCO Commercial, we are able to provide name brand quality televisions such as Sharp."

DEHCO, Inc has over 50 years of experience in supply chain management and fulfillment, and has established a strong network of sales, service and distribution centers across the United States allowing them the ability to inventory name brand LCDs and deliver just-in-time to their customers. DEHCO Commercial builds on that reputation with quick and reliable service, a tremendous benefit to the healthcare industry.

In addition to the Midwest headquarters, DEHCO offers a fully integrated network of sales, distribution and service centers throughout North America, including Eugene, Ore., Elkhart, Ind., Adel, Ga., and Manheim, Pa.

To view a demonstration of how the HC20 works with a standard pillow speaker, visit: www.paradigmmultimedia.com.

World’s First Website for Patients to Share Diagnostic-Quality Medical Images

Author: Heart Imaging Technologies
Dateline: Tue, 03 Feb 2009

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Heart Imaging Technologies (HeartIT(R)) today publicly announced the world's first free website allowing patients to upload and share diagnostic-quality medical images using nothing but a standard web browser, webpax.com. 'Patients can literally email a web link to someone halfway around the world allowing them to instantly view movies of a beating heart,' said Brent Reed, HeartIT's Vice President for Sales and Marketing. 'And the best part about it is that the service is completely free.'”



A R T I C L E:

DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Heart Imaging Technologies (HeartIT(R)) today publicly announced the world's first free website allowing patients to upload and share diagnostic-quality medical images using nothing but a standard web browser, www.webpax.com. "Patients can literally email a web link to someone halfway around the world allowing them to instantly view movies of a beating heart," said Brent Reed, HeartIT's Vice President for Sales and Marketing. "And the best part about it is that the service is completely free."

webpaxThe industry-standard format for medical images is DICOM. Viewing of DICOM-formatted medical images traditionally requires dedicated workstations costing thousands of dollars, which in turn are connected to picture archiving communications and storage (PACS) systems costing hundreds of thousands more. All of this makes it practically impossible for the average patient to view images of their own body. Today, however, Web 2.0 technologies are empowering patients with the ability to manage their own electronic medical records.

"When I tried to open the [DICOM] files at home, they wouldn't open with any software that I had on my computer," said Page Watkins, an expectant mother who had received a copy of her baby's sonogram on CD. "I went online, Googled the extension that they were filed with and found that your site offered software to open the files. Even better, your software was able to save these images in a format that could be viewed on a standard DVD player. Needless to say, the slide show was a hit at our family Christmas."

"Many patients don't realize that they have a legal right to request copies of their medical images," said Paul Cardullo, HeartIT's Director of Software Development. "All they need to do is ask their doctor for a CD with their images in the standard DICOM format and upload them from any PC or Macintosh computer. Patients can then decide whether or not to allow other people to view their images in a web browser and/or download the DICOM data to another part of the world."

Security on www.webpax.com is based on the same technologies used for online banking. As an added precaution, private information such as names and dates are automatically removed from the DICOM header during uploading.

HeartIT's headquarters are located in North Carolina's Research Triangle. Formed in 2000, HeartIT provides web-based medical image management services and computing systems to large hospitals and regional health care systems, as well as drug and device companies sponsoring multi-center clinical trials. Worldwide, HeartIT's systems currently provide secure web browser access to over 200 million medical images.

Electronic Medical Records Are No Longer Limited to Physicians with Deep Pockets

Author: Webahn Inc.
Dateline: Tue, 15 Jul 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LATHRUP VILLAGE, Mich., July 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Webahn Inc. announces the launch of an online electronic medical records application - Capzule.com. This new system makes it affordable for small physician groups to make the switch.”



A R T I C L E:

LATHRUP VILLAGE, Mich., July 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Webahn Inc. announces the launch of an online electronic medical records application - Capzule.com. This new system makes it affordable for small physician groups to make the switch.

CapzuleThe launch of Capzule comes at an ideal time. A recent study appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine that reported many small physician groups have not switched over to an electronic system due to the high cost factor. On average, conversion costs approximately $40,000 per physician. With Capzule.com, the online cost is around $200 per month, per physician.

The study went on to explain that electronic medical records have helped to improve the quality and timeliness of care. Yet, due to high cost, less than one in five of the nation's doctors have started using such records.

Over 2,500 physicians responded to the survey. Among the small number of respondents who had fully functional electronic-records systems, most physicians reported the positive effects of the system on the quality of clinical decisions (82 percent); communication with other providers (92 percent); communication with patients (72 percent); prescription refills (95 percent); timely access to medical records (97 percent); and avoidance of medication errors (86 percent). Furthermore, 82 to 85 percent reported a positive effect on the delivery of long-term and preventive care.

"We want small clinics to have access to these positive health care practices as much as larger clinics who can afford expensive systems," Vinu Nair, CEO, Webahn Inc. says. "As a result, we created an innovative online tool that is not only cost effective, but efficient. Capzule is a fast evolving suite of tools that help small practices deliver quality care."

Webahn Inc. is a privately-held company based in Michigan. The company has been developing innovative health care solutions for over seven years. Their first product, OvernightScribe.com, originated to provide Internet-enabled clinical documentation platform to health care providers to manage medical transcriptions. OvernightScribe is used by many physicians across the country including leading hospitals like Henry Ford Health System of Michigan.

Capzule.com is subscription based and released to the public in its beta phase. For more information, visit: www.Capzule.com.

ENCINO, Calif. - Jan. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In December 2007, MedSort.com, a premier online personal medication list management system, launched a comprehensive personal health records system - MedSort Health(TM) - which empowers consumers and patients to take control of their health records.

Caption: MedSortSince January 2007, MedSort.com has been helping patients to create and manage their medication and allergy list online. Any changes or updates made online are automatically sent to patient physicians. This new addition, MedSort Health(TM), adds a whole new level to patient healthcare management.

MedSort Health(TM) allows consumers and patients to store a comprehensive online health record; keep a health journal; track and graph lab results; check medication interactions; and communicate this information to physicians via an interactive Web link.

With the push towards electronic health records (EHR), more and more physician offices are designing paperless offices. For example, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) are applications used by physicians and other healthcare providers to keep electronic versions of patient health records. It facilitates communication among different healthcare providers and organizations.

Parallel to this, Personal Health Records (PHR) have been developed for patients. They give the patient more control over personal health information.

Using MedSort Health(TM), not only do patients control information, they control who has access to it. While physicians can be given access to update this information, the patient has the final say on the content. This link between the physician and the patient helps to more accurately reflect patient health data and to reduce medical errors.

Prior to the release of MedSort Health(TM), MedSort.com users have been creating complete medication and allergy lists using a comprehensive database of medications. For example, the system presents the patient with available dosages and forms of medications such as tablets, solutions, and eye drops. Based on the selected item, it then provides the patient with appropriate options and usage directions.

While reducing error potential, the resulting list is presented in a format that can be used by physicians, hospitals, and pharmacies, to generate prescriptions or to be saved as part of the patient's medication-list record. An automatic fax feature will fax an updated medication list to patient-designated physicians.

Using a similar comprehensive disease database, MedSort Health(TM) enables patients to also create a diagnoses and symptoms list, as well as store other vital health data such as blood type, immunization records, emergency contact, insurance information, hospitalization records, pharmacies, and more. In addition, they can store and track imaging studies and procedure lists.

Users of MedSort Health(TM) find the Health Journal feature useful. Daily health journal entries allow patients to keep track of their symptoms, doctor discussions, or any other health-related information. This information will never get lost and is accessible through the Internet, during an emergency, via a secure Emergency Access Code that is provided to the patient when they register.

MedSort.com has taken great care to ensure user privacy and data security. No one has access to the patient's data unless the patient provides explicit permission. Permission is granted to physicians if the physician is registered with MedSort(TM) and the patient has selected them as one of their physicians. All physician members' credentials are verified before they gain access to patient information.

As an additional security feature, the site uses encryption and other safeguards to protect against unauthorized access. Emergency Access Codes can be easily re-issued if lost or stolen.

DURHAM, N.C. - July 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Heart Imaging Technologies (HeartIT) announced today that medical images can be viewed on Apple's new iPhone (see examples at www.heartit.com). Physicians can simply click on a web link sent via email by one of their colleagues, enter their password, and, for example, instantly view movies of a patient's beating heart halfway around the world. They can even put their colleagues on speakerphone and carry on a medical consultation while simultaneously browsing through the imaging results.

(c) Send2PressViewing medical images traditionally requires dedicated workstations costing tens of thousands of dollars, which in turn are connected to proprietary picture archiving communications and storage (PACS) systems costing millions of dollars more. In order to view medical images, physicians must literally drive or walk to one of these workstations.

Recent advances in World Wide Web browser technologies and the web sites that utilize their rich features, collectively referred to as Web 2.0, are challenging these expensive and cumbersome proprietary approaches.

Medical images displayed in a web browser have traditionally been of lower quality and therefore had limited diagnostic utility. This technology is the first to provide physicians with the ability to drill-down and view medical images, including movies, on a hand-held device.

"Patient privacy is obviously a critically-important issue on the internet," said Brent Reed, HeartIT's Director of Software Development. "Fortunately, medical privacy concerns can be addressed using the same encryption technologies employed by online banking and credit card transactions."

Heart Imaging Technologies' headquarters are located near North Carolina's Research Triangle Park. Formed in 2000, HeartIT provides web-based medical image management services and computing systems to regional health care systems, large hospitals and private clinics as well as drug and device companies sponsoring multi-center clinical trials. Worldwide, HeartIT's systems currently provide secure web browser access to over 50 million medical images.
