ViewTech Borescopes Acquires New Clients Replacing Outdated Visual Inspection Scopes

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Whether an inspection application requires a small diameter borescope to enter a narrow access port or one that can articulate as it navigates through lengthy piping, ViewTech Borescopes VJ-3 video borescopes are utilized and relied upon throughout every industry. North America's lineup of top-selling articulating video borescopes caught the attention of two of their newest clients, a manufacturer of oceanographic measurement equipment and a global energy supplier.

A Production Engineer for an oceanographic equipment manufacturing company sought a new visual inspection tool to assist with product design. It was essential the borescope feature brighter lighting and an improved image quality than their current borescope was equipped with. Through ViewTech Borescopes no-cost, no-obligation demo offer, their Washington based facility was able to trial a VJ-3 2.8mm x 1.0-meter video borescope.

With hands-on experience utilizing the VJ-3, the ViewTech borescope documented areas not visually accessible during previous remote visual inspections (RVI). The decision to purchase was easy to quantify by their engineering team.

Another of ViewTech's newest clients, a global energy supplier, was not able to complete necessary inspections. With their current borescope too large to access chiller tubes, it was critical they purchase an inspection tool specifically for this application. After researching new borescopes for sale, they immediately considered ViewTech's VJ-3 video borescope. The video borescope requirements their Operations & Maintenance Supervisor deemed crucial were: 360-degree articulation, more than 20 feet of insertion tube, and a diameter smaller than half of one inch. The borescope experts at ViewTech recommended they trial a VJ-3 Dual Camera. While many borescopes use side view attachments or interchangeable viewing angle tips, with the ViewTech Dual Camera borescope, simply pushing a button toggles between front-view and side-view cameras. After their free demo VJ-3 Dual Camera was onsite and chiller tube inspections complete, the ViewTech video borescope was purchased by their O&M Supervisor.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a NDT instrument used for the RVI of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 video borescope consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with a control panel, LCD monitor, power source, and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics, and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

Across Healthcare announces the eDocSS app, an EHR integrated application that allows surgeons and institutions to comply with new Commission on Cancer Synoptic Operative Report Standards

CARROLTON, Ga. -- Across Healthcare announces the eDocSS app, an EHR integrated application that allows surgeons and institutions to comply with new Commission on Cancer Synoptic Operative Report Standards. Evidence-based research indicates that surgical outcomes related to cancer patients such as quality of life and survival can be improved by adhering to specific operative techniques. In addition, replacing narrative operative dictations with synoptic operative reports can improve the capture of vital cancer surgery information. With these facts in mind, the 2020 Commission on Cancer (CoC) standards for accreditation now require synoptic operative reports (SORs) for four new operative standards that span colon, breast, and melanoma surgery.

To facilitate implementation of these operative standards, Across Healthcare co-developed the electronic Documentation of Surgery Standards (eDocSS) app with the American College of Surgeons (ACS). This app, which is embedded into electronic health records (EHRs), provides surgeons with ACS-developed Synoptic Operative Reports (SORs) that include evidence-based data fields, linkages to appropriate coding standards, and detailed explanatory notes to facilitate accurate completion of the report. Across Healthcare is working closely with EHR vendors to embed the app using a standards-based SMART on FHIR framework, that aligns with the 21st Century Cures Act final rule, to speed implementation and adoption.

"As one of the most advanced cancer centers in the country, Helen F. Graham Cancer Center within the Christiana Care Health System, was honored to be the initial site for the eDocSS app," said Dr. Karen Louie, Breast Surgeon. "With the app embedded into our Cerner PowerChart, this makes completing a synoptic operative report very efficient for our surgeons."

The eDocSS application includes the following:

* Auto-population - Pre-existing fields are pulled from the patient record, and the surgeon needs only to verify the information or edit as needed.

* CoC Standards - Fulfills the synoptic operative reporting requirements for the Commission on Cancer 2020 operative standards 5.3 through 5.6.

* American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) TNM Staging System - TNM categories are incorporated into any data fields related to staging.

* National Cancer Database (NCDB) Codes - Select NCDB codes and definitions from the Standards for Oncology Registry Entry (STORE) manual that are relevant to the data fields in the app.

* EHR Integration - eDocSS uses SMART on FHIR and will be integrated with top EHR vendors. This application is not a standalone app, but rather uses Single Sign On (SSO) and embeds inside the workflow of the EHR.

"We were blessed to work closely with the experts at ACS as well as many surgeons across the country to develop the eDocSS app," said Jason Colquitt, CEO of Across Healthcare. "Our focus will now shift to supporting the more than 1,500 CoC accredited cancer programs that need to comply with the new CoC operative standards."

Currently, there are three SORs available in the eDocSS app. The ACS CSSP (Cancer Surgery Standards Program) team is planning to develop over 45 SORs that will all be available within eDocSS as they are released. Additional management and maintenance of the SORs within eDocSS will be handled by Across Healthcare. The eDocSS app is available to both CoC and non-CoC surgeons and institutions.

To learn more about eDocSS visit www.eDocSS.app or contact us at info@edocss.app.

DataNumen Exchange Recovery Is Now Available in Multiple Languages

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- DataNumen, a software company specializing in pro-level data recovery solutions, has released the new version of its OST repair tool. DataNumen Exchange Recovery 8.5 retrieves data from inaccessible offline storage tables, preventing the loss of important data from Outlook 365, Exchange, IMAP, or Outlook.com. The new version is localized into 9 languages: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese.

MS Outlook is a globally popular email client and personal information manager with over 400 million users. It stores user data in offline storage tables (OST) for the following types of accounts: IMAP, Outlook 365, Outlook.com, and Exchange accounts. OST files allow the user to access previously downloaded emails, calendar entries, and other data without an Internet connection.

However, sometimes the contents of an offline storage table become inaccessible - for example, if the file is damaged or orphaned (which means that the account linked to this OST file is no more available). In some cases, it can entail grave problems and material losses, especially if the file contains important business data. Currently, MS Outlook does not offer any remedies for such a situation, therefore it is recommended to install an external OST repair tool - for example, DataNumen Exchange Recovery.

This program can fix any errors caused by inaccessible OST files. If an offline storage table is damaged, DataNumen Exchange Recovery retrieves its contents and generates a new OST file to replace it. In case of an orphaned file, the program converts it to a PST table, which can be easily accessed by Outlook. DataNumen Exchange Recovery can also restore permanently deleted emails or other objects in the user's Exchange mailbox.

DataNumen Exchange Recovery is based on advanced technologies, which allow to analyze OST files byte by byte and retrieve as much data as possible. According to comparative tests, this solution demonstrates the highest average recovery rate in the market: 96.8% against 51.9% of the nearest competitor. That is why DataNumen Exchange Recovery, along with other DataNumen products, is used by Microsoft, Oracle, Intel, and other large corporations.

KEY FEATURES OF DATANUMEN EXCHANGE RECOVERY:
- Repair of damaged or corrupt OST files;

GridBright, Inc. launches GRIDEON Secure Grid Collaboration (SGC) As A Service to Help Utilities Share Sensitive Data Needed to Keep the Lights On

ALAMO, Calif. -- Essential to managing today's and the future electric grid is data-its movement and security. GRIDEON developed by GridBright (gridbright.com) under an award from the US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA-E) addresses this need.

It was created in collaboration with a team of cybersecurity and utility industry experts from BetterGrids Foundation (Bettergrids.org), Midcontinent Independent System Operator (misoenergy.org), and Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative (mcecoop.com). Over 40 organizations across the grid value chain have contributed to defining the requirements for GRIDEON.

"MCEC needed to share critical data with a strategic partner. Internet and email were not sufficiently secure. For years the method was walking a USB key to the partner for exchange. GRIDEON is a better way," says Keith Sturkie, VP of IT at MCEC. "GRIDEON improved our security posture and lowered our costs."

GRIDEON is an open-source-based suite of easy-to-use cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, technologies, enablement and support services, and standards that provide the full set of capabilities required to instantiate any type of secure grid data exchange.

GRIDEON efficiently ensures secure and compliant grid data exchange among all-electric ecosystem participants encompassing the entire electric value chain from generation to consumers (prosumers) spanning business and real-time operations.

It accommodates the creation of multiple types of exchanges necessitated by the utility industry's grid data sharing applications such as collaboration, real-time system integration, publication-subscriber, one-to-many, among just a few.

Secure Grid Collaboration is the second service established on GRIDEON. The first is the BetterGrids Grid Model Repository that is presently used in 45 countries. BetterGrids.org is a free library of curated, non-sensitive grid models shared voluntarily by grid researchers. It includes synthetic and anonymized grid models and uses a rigorous curation process to ensure data quality. AI tools for semantic and natural language searching allow researchers to find their desired test data easily.

Secure Grid Collaboration extends the GRIDEON service reach. It establishes core grid data exchange standards that drive cost efficiency and management efficacy for foundational exchange artifacts such as nondisclosure agreements (NDA) between counterparties. It provides the foundation for future process management and real time services in emergency management and DER integration and beyond.

It also implements the enabling processes for secure grid data exchanges such as participant registration and advanced encryption key services that support exchange operations, security, and compliance.

Girding these key elements is a support organization providing 24 x 7 help, operations, and technical support functions required by the operational nature of many of the exchanges a typical utility will implement.
