Great Speech Inc. Strengthens Its Presence Nationwide with Medicare Enrollment

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Great Speech Inc., a national virtual speech therapy company committed to improving health equity for America's underserved seniors, today announced its affiliated clinical group Great Therapy Group LLC, has significantly increased the breadth and depth of its provider network nationwide by receiving its own Medicare number.

"With over 10,000 people turning 65 each day, this expansion will align Great Speech's therapists to support the senior population from the convenience of their home and on their schedule. No need to weather the storm, ask for favors or try to figure out how to get a ride to your nearby clinic," says Avivit Ben-Aharon, Founder and Clinical Director of Great Speech.

Our goal is to assist with social determinants of health since numerous studies indicate that communication skills of older adults are strong predictors of their mental health. Poor communication skills can not only evoke anxiety, depression, and stress in older adults but also predispose them to social isolation and loneliness (*citation).

Individuals eligible for Medicare Part B in 41 states can request a free screening today to determine eligibility and start services immediately.

Great Speech commonly treats: Alzheimer's & Dementia, Articulation disorders, Autism Spectrum disorder, Cognitive Communication Disorder, Head & Neck Cancer, Hearing loss, Language disorder, Parkinson's disorder, post-Covid complications, Stuttering, Stroke & Aphasia rehabilitation, Traumatic Brain Injury, Voice Disorder & More

National Online Speech Therapy Company Creates Free Resource Library in Response to Pandemic

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Great Speech, Inc., an online speech therapy company, saw a spike for service demand when the pandemic hit. Founder and Clinical Director, Avivit Ben-Aharon, MS Ed., MA CCC-SLP, also quickly realized that many consumers who desperately needed services, lacked the financial resources or insurance coverage to pay for online services.

With a strong desire to fill the void, Ben-Aharon along with her team of therapists, created a free resource library of how-to videos, eBooks and blogs with speech therapy exercises for children and adults.

"The pandemic has highlighted the strong need for online speech therapy services," Ben-Aharon explained. "Despite stay-at-home and stay-safe orders, we need to keep moving forward. Children who are out of school as well as seniors who are rehabbing from a health crisis such as a stroke, can quickly fall behind in their learning and/or recovery. These free learning and exercise resources empower people to continue to make communication improvements."

These free online speech therapy resources can help everyone from a child who stutters to an adult on the autism spectrum or a senior recovering from a traumatic brain injury. They are also ideal for the parent-turned-teacher for activities and exercises to practice at home. The technology really resonates with how more and more businesses are moving to remote and online operations.

The advantages of online speech therapy are endless. For example, a grandmother in Chicago who has suffered a stroke can connect online with a speech therapist from Houston, while her daughter in Cleveland monitors the session; or a therapist who moves out of town can still provide services to their clients and provide continuity of care.

Great Speech's highly-trained speech therapists provide effective techniques for everything from articulation and phonology to stuttering, voice therapy, aphasia and more. Each speech therapist holds a master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology; a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA); and is licensed by various state licensing boards.

Jocelyn Keegan Selected for New HITAC Task Force Focused on Intersection of Clinical and Administrative Data (ICAD)

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Today, Point-of-Care Partners announced the appointment of Jocelyn Keegan to the Intersection of Clinical and Administrative Data (ICAD) Task Force. ICAD was formed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology-administered Health Information Technology Advisory Committee (HITAC).

The ICAD was created to advance the merging of clinical and administrative data. The task force will focus its initial efforts on advancing industry use of electronic prior authorization (ePA), supporting work underway and leveraging existing information from HITAC and the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics' (NCVHS) prior authorization hearings.

Keegan, a senior health information technology consultant with Point-of-Care Partners (POCP), is a Task Group lead of Pharmacy ePA at the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP), former Task Group lead of Specialty Pharmacy Benefit Identification at NCPDP and leads POCP's team in support of ONC FAST (FHIR at Scale Taskforce). Her work cuts across key regulatory and standards organizations; Health Level Seven International (HL7(R)), X12, NCPDP, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and ONC. She currently serves as Program Manager for HL7 Da Vinci, a Payer/Provider led initiative to leverage HL7 FHIR(R) to exchange critical data required for Value Based Care contracts.

"It is critical to bring together industry investment in both clinical and administrative transactions. ICAD will serve a vital role in addressing gaps that exist due to the diverse standards and systems in play across pharmacy and medical prior authorization. As one of the only people in health IT with hands-on involvement in the rollout of new prior authorization tools across all major standards, Jocelyn is uniquely qualified to help ICAD bring together disparate clinical and administrative data sets," said Tony Schueth, CEO and Managing Partner of Point-of-Care Partners.

Keegan adds, "We are at an inflection point with the industry's move to value-based care and the evolution of available standards to create transparency and synthesize payer/provider data exchange to remove, reduce and streamline complex, often burdensome workflows like those that exist today for prior authorizations. I look forward to helping to drive forward industry and contribute to ICAD's mission in a meaningful way."

ICAD's goal is to produce information and considerations related to the merging of clinical and administrative data, its transport structures, and rules and protections for ePA. The task force's initial recommendations are expected to be issued this fall. Weekly meeting materials and transcripts are available on HealthIT.gov - https://www.healthit.gov/hitac/meetings/2781.

Point-of-Care Partners is a health IT management consulting firm with in-depth expertise in ePrescribing, eMedication management, health information exchange, population health management and multi-stakeholder initiatives.

Flu Prevention Tips for the 2018 – 2019 Flu Season from Primary Care Physicians of Florida

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Seasonal flu activity typically begins in October and November and can last into late May, but the worst of it typically occurs sometime between December and January, says Primary Care Physicians. Even though there have not been many cases of flu reported within Florida so far this year, don't assume that this will be a mild flu season.

Since last year's flu season was long and difficult, it is a good idea to prepare for the 2018 and 2019 flu season early by remembering these tips to help prevent the spread of the flu in your home, school or business.

Get Immunized Early for the Flu:
Prevention is the best way to avoid the flu and the best way to prevent it is by getting a flu shot early in flu season so individuals have some immunity before it breaks out and spreads through the community. Everyone older than six months should get a flu shot each year, especially those older than 65 years of age and other vulnerable populations. Getting an annual flu shot is an essential part of a senior health care regimen for anyone over 65.

Wash Hands Often:
Probably the easiest way to prevent the spread of the flu is by washing hands often with hot water and anti-bacterial soap for at least 20 seconds. But don't forget to dry hands afterwards, because the flu loves damp surfaces.

Wipe Down Surfaces in Common Areas:
The flu is a hearty virus that can survive on hard surfaces anywhere from 24 to 48-hours, so it is important that they are wiped them down with disinfectant at least once a day, particularly in common areas where many people get together such as conference rooms, break areas, bathrooms, and on objects such as door handles, snack and soda machines, microwaves, light switches, and any other surface that might be touched by more than one person every day. They can be cleaned with products containing soap, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, and chlorine.

Avoid Touching the Eyes, Nose and Mouth:
Flu enters the body through the soft tissues of the nose, mouth and (most often) the eyes. So, if you have a habit of touching your face, rubbing the eyes or nose, break that habit. This is the easiest way to contract the flu. Because flu spreads through tiny droplets that often land on one's hands, touching eyes, nose or mouth, passes the virus into the body. Prevent the spread flu by keeping hands away from the face.

Stay Home If Sick:
Don't be one of those people who want to prove their dedication to their co-workers by coming to work while sick. This won't be any good for anyone at the workplace. All that happens when someone infected with the flu comes to work or school sick is expose everyone else to the flu. Do not return to work until 24-hours after the fever breaks.

Sunshine Capital, Inc. Appoints Honson Luma as VP to Assist In Its Plan to Enter the Cryptocurrency Market

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Sunshine Capital, Inc. (Pink Sheets: SCNP / OTC:SCNP) today announces that it has appointed Honson Luma as Vice President of Sunshine Capital, Inc. and DIB Funding, Inc. to assist both companies' entry in the cryptocurrency market.

Originally from Miami, Florida but currently residing in Baltimore, Maryland, Honson Luma received a B.A. in Political Science/Public Administration from Florida Memorial University, and a Master's in Public Administration from Sojourner-Douglass College. He is currently pursuing his Doctorate Degree in Community College Education Leadership at Morgan State University (ABD). Mr. Luma is a seasoned futures and cryptocurrencies trader and uses his company, Space Age Investment Group/Consultant, LLC (SAIG) for its members to achieve financial independence. Mr. Luma brings an extensive knowledge of the cryptocurrency market - not only as a trader but as a creator and programmer of cryptocurrencies to his new role at Sunshine Capital.

"I believe in creating shareholder value and that is exactly what I plan on doing for these two companies," stated the newly appointed Vice President of Sunshine Capital, Inc. and DIB Funding Inc. "I intend to use all my expertise in the creating of cryptocurrencies to dramatically change how mergers and acquisitions are executed, with no debt or dilution to the Sunshine Capital shareholders, by making every acquisition the company executes a net positive to the company's balance sheet."

"What we are about to do in the cryptocurrency market is unique and will make the two associated companies leaders in the cryptocurrency market very quickly," he added.

"We are building a solid management team," stated Daniel J. Duffy, speaking on behalf of the Board of Advisors. "Since I am unable to run the companies myself, I have sought the necessary management skills for our executives to achieve the lofty goals which I have for the companies. I feel that cryptocurrencies have the same growth potential that many of the dot-com companies experienced. The difference is that with our management team, we will avoid the implosion that many of those companies experience. Mr. Luma is one of the best cryptocurrency creators in the business and can make us leaders in the cryptocurrency market. I am used to achieving large increases in companies' size and value in which I had an interest in the past and I believe Sunshine will be the best opportunity yet."

"It's an honor to have Mr. Luma on this management team," stated James R. J. Scheltema, President and CEO of Sunshine Capital Inc. "What Mr. Luma is going to help execute in the cryptocurrency market is going to shock a lot of people and I look forward to working with him."
