Our #1 Goal is Patient Safety

Our #1 Goal is Patient Safety

MedChron, L. L.C. Announces Its Goal to Patient Safety. Medical Chronology Timelines will help insure patient safety while cutting cost spent on malpractice.

(PRWEB) March 1, 2003

MedChron, L. L.C., a medical chronology timeline service is proud to announce the launch of their new web site. www. medchronllc. com. MedChron is a new and upcoming company in Germantown Tennessee which has been in business for several months. They provide a combination of legal services with a medical staff of Certified R. N's who are committed to implementing a "patient safety" checkpoint system throughout our medical community.

MedChron's CEO's Jillyan Walker and Kathy Romero are excited about their new venture and what impact their company can have on the medical community. They are quoted as saying "our Vision Statement says it all, we are committed to facilitating a structure which increases the efficiency and quality of healthcare provided and decrease the cost spent on medical malpractice".

Each of us currently live with the fact there is a lack of patient-safety practices which has increased our public awareness to a possible medical negligence. Our medical community has incurred expenses for discovery phase of lawsuits well over $100,000 and those expenses are rising. Doctors malpractice insurance companies are not renewing policies. All of which has given rise to high cost of medical malpractice insurance and costs our healthcare system in ways we are all faced with, labor shortages and cost costs all affect the quality of care we receive.

"We know the system we are currently operating within can improve, we understand that the advantages of implementing our services is not something we will see an immediate return on, there are many more steps that need to be taken, but we are confident that MedChron can start a patient safety process that will, in time, end this madness" says Jillyan Walker, Owner and CEO of MedChron.

MedChron is currently pursuing JACHO compliance and will keep us posted as to their progress. Currently they have met with representatives at Methodist Health Care and are awaiting a response from Baptist Hospital they are currently working with malpractice insurance providers with the hope they can implement a "discount" incentive program to doctors malpractice insurance premiums who are implementing MedChron's services in their practices.

MedChron is everyone's "First Step to Understanding".

New approach to vital pricing issues

New approach to vital pricing issues

Announcement of new service offering in pricing and reimbursement from Bridgehead Technologies Ltd, an international healthcare consultancy company.

(PRWEB) November 9, 2002

Bridgehead Technologies Ltd has announced that Jim Furniss, formerly of the UK Department of Health, has joined to advise pharmaceutical and medical device companies on pricing and reimbursement policy.

His appointment adds to a team of senior industry specialists, based in Bridgehead TechnologiesÂ’ UK and Swiss offices. Advice on all aspects of pricing, including health economics, outcomes research, financial modelling and negotiations can now be handled in-house by one team headed by Jim.

Manage commercial impact

Jim Furniss says that the future wonÂ’t be any easier than the current difficult environment:

” Governments will continue to look for new ways of controlling prices and squeezing pharmaceutical expenditure. The solution is to plan early. With global pressures on pricing and re-imbursement, and increasing European harmonisation, companies have a commercial responsibility to protect profits by proper planning and effective implementation of pricing policies.”

Make partnerships, not enemies

“However it does not have to be war. Often lack of personal contact with officials or failure to understand their constraints leads industry to treat them as enemies. But despite their need to budget, Governments and health insurance schemes do have health gain as the number one priority. Competitors are the true enemy”.

Integration of approach

As Bridgehead Director, Tim Fitzgerald points out “much of the expertise which has been developed in our established areas of due diligence, project evaluation and valuation, such as financial modelling and primary market research, are equally important for companies seeking to establish optimal European and global pricing and reimbursement strategies.”

“Where Bridgehead stands out is in our ability to combine these tools with our understanding of European pricing, reimbursement and parallel trade issues and hands-on reimbursement negotiation experience, from both the industry and government perspective, and Jim adds significantly to this”.

For further information about this new Pricing and Reimbursement Service

Call Tim Fitzgerald or Jim Furniss at the UK office on +44 (0) 1664 503700 or email

Fitzgerald@bridgehead. uk. com or furniss@bridgehead. uk. com

For general information about Bridgehead Technologies visit www. bridgehead. uk. com


Jim Furniss:

At the Department of Health Jim headed the Pharmaceutical Industry Branch and represented the UK on pharmaceutical issues at the European Commission.

Jim has a detailed understanding of pharmaceutical policy issues throughout Europe and elsewhere as well as a practical knowledge of Company-Government relations in the field of drug price reimbursement.

Jim joins Bridgehead from his position as Senior Vice President at Cambridge Pharma Consultancy where he led the successful pharmaceutical policy and European reimbursement practice for 5 years.

Other Pricing Experts at Bridgehead Technologies:

Chris Neild

Formerly with Fisons/RPR (now Aventis) in central planning roles and European and USA subsidiary operational and General Management roles. In the USA he was responsible for all pricing and health economic matters. He is an economist and fluent in French and German.

Tim Fitzgerald

Formerly in senior commercial and management positions with Hoechst Marion Roussel and Aventis Pharma in Europe and the Middle East, with policy input in many areas and direct negotiation experience in cardiovascular, antibiotics and diabetes.

Akron's M/W International Awarded GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification(R)

Akron's M/W International Awarded GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification(R)

M/W International Inc. (MWI) announced today that its entire Forecast line of architectural demountable partitions has been awarded GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification(R), indicating that they meet the strict requirements of the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). GEI is the leader in establishing independent standards for low emitting interior products and building materials for healthy indoor air.

AKRON, Ohio (PRWEB) January 2, 2008

 Since indoor air is often four to five times more polluted than outside air, facility managers are becoming increasing aware of the dangers it can present. At high levels, buildings can become "sick," causing people to experience headaches, become lethargic, and fatigued. Illness and lost productivity due to indoor air pollution and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) costs businesses $60 billion annually, according to a recent EPA report.

"GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is pleased to include M/W International's moveable wall panels among the extensive listing of GREENGUARD Certified products," says Laura Spriggs, Communications Manager with GEI. "The certified moveable walls not only support a flexible and adaptable office plan, they also contribute to better indoor air quality by assuring low chemical emissions. Studies indicate that healthy work environments can produce significant benefits including increased worker productivity, less sick days and employee retention."

M/W International's President, Joseph Bucalo, commented, "Our products are in complete alignment with the growth sectors of the Northeast Ohio region where we are headquartered. The region's progress is being led by companies such as The Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals, who are world-class leaders in the industry most responsible for improving people's quality of life, and healthy productivity in the workplace. They are at the forefront of initiatives aimed at improving the quality of indoor air. We are intent on joining them in creating a healthy office environment where everyone can breathe easily."

GREENGUARD Certification ensures that the moveable walls produced by M/W International have been rigorously tested and proven to adhere to strict chemical and particle emissions criteria. Building managers, architects, and contractors are gaining interest in demountable partitions because they minimize the risk of airborne pollutants like dust, paint fumes, and debris getting into expensive computer systems during construction. They dramatically reduce the cost of waste disposal to the environment, can be repurposed and reconfigured easily, and are recyclable upon disposal.

Architects, builders, interior designers, specifying professionals, and commercial building managers working with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the US Green Building Council's LEED(R) sustainable building guidelines can now specify any of MWI's Forecast line of demountable partitions to achieve valuable LEED(R) points as part of their overall sustainability initiatives.

About M/W International Inc.

Since 1932, M/W International of Akron, Ohio, has been providing architects, designers and building professionals with efficient and attractive floor-to-ceiling demountable wall systems and integrated office furniture that support better indoor air quality and employee efficiency without sacrificing architectural style. MWI's Forecast line of demountable wall partitions and Genesis office furniture systems provide quick and easy, nondestructive wall reconfigurations with the ability to easily manage the change in power and data cables for unprecedented flexibility and true cost savings.

About GREENGUARD Environmental Institute

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program. As an ANSI Authorized Standards Developer, GEI establishes acceptable indoor air standards for indoor products, environments, and buildings. GEI's mission is to improve public health and quality of life through programs that improve indoor air.

ZodiacHealth. com to Offer EMR Transcription Services for Medical Professionals

ZodiacHealth. com to Offer EMR Transcription Services for Medical Professionals

Zodiac Infotech – the online leader in transcription, EMR transcription, medical record management and other documentation management services – is pleased offer a brand new EMR compatible transcription service. The company has recently teamed up with a well-known, third-party EMR company to achieve and be successful with this endeavor. The goal: To cut down on doctor note-taking and documentation time, while still preserving the confidentiality of patients’ records, as well as to offer concise, clinical documentation for all medical professionals.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 17, 2010 –

Zodiac Transcription – the online leader in transcription, medical record management and EMR transcription – is pleased to announce a new service for medical professionals: Total EMR transcription services. This newer service will assist small, medium and large-sized medical entities by offering them the ability to convert dictated notes into digital format—resulting in cutting down their time on computer data entries by allowing physicians and providers to continue using conventional dictation options. The company will offer proven and cutting-edge software solutions that will streamline the EMR documentation process, but without compromising the confidentiality of patients’ records.

According to the Sr. Vice President of Zodiac, Vishal Mehta, the aim of this newer service will be to make physicians’ jobs that much easier.

“Our goal is to provide a hassle-free and easy-to-use solution to physicians across the country,” states Mehta. “Our solution will increase the acceptance level of the EMR platform within the medical community, and will provide the ability to physicians to be able to better focus their talents on providing improved patient care—while our team will handle the integration, document management and compliance jobs for them.”

To assess these newer technological demands in the ever-growing medical sector, the company has several well-laid plans, including integration with several leading EMR companies that should pass through all of the hurdles. Mehta has also noted that the company is currently in discussions with them (other leading EMR companies), and that this can ultimately lead to a partnering and sharing of technologies—so that it can be presented to existing clients and future prospects as a viable and affordable service.

In order to adequately offer such modernized and revolutionary services in the medical sector, Zodiac Transcription Service will be launching a special module on their website (www. ZodiacHealth. com) just for EMR Integrated Transcription services.

Mehta asserts that their newer technology will greatly reduce patients’ records clutter, and will cut down on additional time spent on taking each patients’ notes, due to click-and-select, or template-driven EMR systems; physicians will be able to focus on patient care, instead of focusing on data entry.

“This offering will empower physicians to leverage technology without spending too much time learning it—allowing for them to focus their primary care efforts on patients, as opposed to entering data into a computer,” Mehta explains.

The company plans to unveil their new website module and service at the end of May, 2010.

Author & Master Motivator Julia Havey to address the 2nd World Obesity & Weight Loss Congress in Washington, D. C September 13, 2005

Author & Master Motivator Julia Havey to address the 2nd World Obesity & Weight Loss Congress in Washington, D. C September 13, 2005

Julia Havey, author “Awaken the Diet Within” and the diet phenomena www. vicebustingdiet. com to address the 2nd World Obesity & Weight Loss Congress in Washington, D. C September 13, 2005

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 15, 2005

Julia Havey will be sharing the stage with the directors of the American Obesity Association, The FDA and the FTC in the opening keynote speeches to the attendees of the World Obesity & Overweight Congress. These attendees are the makers of pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter remedies, diet plans and other products designed to battle obesity. She will be spelling out why traditional methods havenÂ’t yet solved the overweight problem and what has brought us to epidemic obesity.

“We live in a time where record numbers are having their stomachs stapled to then only have to make the very same lifestyle changes that bring about weight loss. It is alarming that the numbers of Gastric Bypass surgeries are soaring, we are spending $45 Billion on traditional “diet” means and only getting fatter! We aren’t obese because our stomachs are too big or we ephedra deficient; we are obese because we choose to put too much food in our stomachs, don’t drink enough water or get enough exercise”—Julia Havey

Julia knows. She topped the scales at 290 pounds and was labeled morbidly obese by her doctor. Julia had been on various diets for over 17 years by that point and failed miserably at each one. “It was not until I identified my diet “vices” and busted them forever out of my life that I realized lasting weight loss” says Julia. Julia lost 130 pounds, has kept it off for 10+ years and now helps millions of others to do the same as the Master Motivator at eDiets. com. She is the author of “Awaken the Diet Within” (#2 on Amazon. com’s health ranking—behind Dr. Atkins) and the creator of “The Vice Busting Diet; the LifeChanger Program” and maintains the website, www. JuliaHavey. com.

The renowned Dr. David L. Katz acclaims Julia’s work; “In ‘The Vice Busting Diet,’ Julia has designed for you dietary guidance that will meet your every specification, and surpass your every expectation. Julia is, in a word, terrific, and this is Julia at her best. The advice Julia offers is eminently sensible, definitely doable, and wonderfully empowering. It is also tried and true, the basis for Julia’s own remarkable weight loss success. Healthy, vibrant, and 130 lbs lighter than her former self, Julia talks about weight loss - and lasting weight control - not as a hypothetical, but as a journey she knows intimately. When you follow where Julia leads, there is no risk of losing your way, because Julia has walked every step of this walk already!”

A Domestic Violence Website for the Victim and the Accused

A Domestic Violence Website for the Victim and the Accused

The Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer is proud to announce the creation of a new website dedicated solely to domestic violence.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2006

What exactly constitutes domestic violence against another person? Is physical contact required? Or are threatening words enough? Questions such as these are answered on the new website dedicated specifically to the topic of domestic violence. This site is particularly unique because it contains information for both the victim and the accused.

The firm specializes in handling domestic violence matters. Their lawyers have extensive experience in managing domestic violence cases in both family and criminal courts, representing both the victim and the accused.

“As a former prosecutor, specially trained and experienced in prosecuting domestic violence cases, Mr. Schweitzer has been highly successful in representing victims and individuals accused of domestic violence in family and criminal courts,” says Cathy Padilla, senior paralegal at the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer.

“Representing an individual involved in a domestic violence case requires an attorney with highly effective trial skills and a solid understanding of the law. We are a firm that provides that specialized service. Our professional legal team is fully equipped to handle these emergency types of matters and we are very familiar with the intricacies involved in domestic violence cases in family and criminal court,” says Donald Schweitzer, managing attorney.

An individual involved in a domestic violence incident should never be reluctant from requesting assistance because of a perceived stigma attached to being a victim or the accused. Domestic violence pervades all races, socio-economic classes, religions, and regions. Whatever your background, if you have been abused or accused, get assistance immediately for your own health and safety.

We urge you to view the new domestic violence website as it is a wealth of information.

QuickMedical® Launches Cellerate RX® from Wound Care Innovations

QuickMedical® Launches Cellerate RX® from Wound Care Innovations

Pressure ulcers occur in approximately 9% of hospitalized patients, usually during the first 2 weeks of hospitalization. A study found that even with the use of a pressure-reducing bed and early nutritional support, 3% of patients in a surgical intensive care unit who were employed in the study developed pressure ulcers. The annual risk of pressure ulceration of patients with neurologic impairment is 5-8%, with a lifetime risk of approximately 85% and a mortality rate of 8%*.

Issaquah, WA (PRWEB) November 8, 2010

The prevalence of pressure ulcers among patients residing in long-term care facilities has been reported as 2.3-28% and has been an increasingly common reason for litigation. The presence of a pressure ulcer increases a nurse's workload by 50% for the patient and adds approximately $20,000 to the hospital bill. The treatment of pressure ulcers in the United States is estimated to cost more than $1 billion annually*.

"We are very excited to be offering the Cellerate RX® products from Wound Care Innovations," said Scott Hanna, CEO at QuickMedical®. "These products represent a true advancement in collagen based wound care products and I'm sure will exceed expectations of both the healthcare professional and their patients."

Jane Fore MD, Director, Tri-State Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, Clarkston, Washington State said, "CellerateRX® is the standard of care in my clinic. This product is compatible with other wound care products and gives the wound environment the basic building blocks for growth and contributes an essential part of the wound matrix that supports the migration of cells to healing tissues."

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, an estimated 18 million Americans (6.3% of the population) are known to have diabetes, and millions more are considered to be at risk. Of those at risk, diabetes is undiagnosed in 5.2 million. Diabetic foot lesions are responsible for more hospitalizations than any other complication of diabetes. Among patients with diabetes, 15% will develop a foot ulcer, and 12-24% of those with a foot ulcer will require amputation. Indeed, diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic lower-extremity amputations in the United States, accounting for 60% of these amputations*.

Cathy Bradshaw, President of Wound Care Innovations said," 85% of all LEA (lower extremity amputations) are preceded by non-healing ulcerations. Our Cellerate RX® product has been shown to successfully address these diabetic wounds. Lower extremity wounds and the incidence of amputations is a serious issue in healthcare and we have a product that has been shown to provide quality outcomes in a cost effective manner."

CellerateRX® is FDA cleared for acute and chronic wounds which include but are not limited to: diabetic ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, ulcers due to arterial insufficiency, pressure ulcers stages I-IV, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, superficial wounds, and 1st and 2nd degree burns. It is manufactured in the United States.

CellerateRX®'s patented activated collagen fragments are a fraction of the size of native collagen molecules, delivering the benefits of collagen to the body immediately. Manufactured in the USA. Apply 2-3 times per week. Type-1 bovine collagen.

Piribo: New Publication Announcement, The Outlook for Medical Devices: Russia

Piribo: New Publication Announcement, The Outlook for Medical Devices: Russia

Piribo, (piribo. com) the online destination for business intelligence for the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, has now added a new report called “The Outlook for Medical Devices: Russia”.

(PRWEB) August 20, 2006

The Russian market is potentially huge, given its population and potential wealth of natural resources. Health expenditure remains very low however, and patients are often forced to rely on out-of-pocket payments for treatment. A system of medical insurance is in place, but is largely considered ineffective. The Russian healthcare system retains most of its Soviet-era characteristics, remaining bureaucratic and inefficient. The government is planning to carry out healthcare reforms however, which aims to affect staffing and the quality of care. Russian medical device manufacturers are generally small and undercapitalised, and tend to produce obsolete products; they can only compete with Western products in terms of cost. The country has a strong scientific research base but has no experience of commercialising new products. Almost 80% of the market is supplied by imports. Germany, the USA and France were the leading suppliers in 2004, accounting for over 30% of imports. The value of imports has generally increased over the last five years, although growth in 2004 was modest, at 6.4%. Medical device market outlook reports are ideal for executives wanting to understand the key drivers in the medical market and stay up to date with market developments over the coming year. The reports provide a comprehensive analysis of the market, five-year market forecasts, national data projections, market outlook and key developments such as regulation, health facilities and government policy. When you buy a medical device market outlook report you will receive 3 quarterly updated reports at no additional charge.

Highlighting a Bright Spot in a Down Economy, Career Step to Re-launch Online Healthcare Training Program

Highlighting a Bright Spot in a Down Economy, Career Step to Re-launch Online Healthcare Training Program

Career Step re-launches its Inpatient and Outpatient Medical Coding and Billing program. Healthcare a lone bright spot in a down economy.

Provo, Utah (PRWEB) June 30, 2010

Careers in healthcare fields are one of the bright spots in an otherwise down economy. In an effort to highlight these job opportunities, Career Step, a leading online healthcare education company, has re-launched its Inpatient and Outpatient Medical Coding and Billing program (http://careerstep. com/courses/coding-billing-intro? uid=pub100629).

“Career Step has always focused its training programs on fields that show continued patterns of growth,” said Mike Hodgson, Career Step’s Vice President of Enrollments. “We’ve chosen to re-launch our Inpatient and Outpatient Medical Coding and Billing program this month to draw attention the fact that the number of jobs in this field aren’t following the nationwide trend—there are more opportunities now than there were several years ago, and the field is still growing.”

Both the U. S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) have recently released reports on the number of jobs the Medical Coding and Billing field will generate within the next few years. The BLS classifies medical coding and billing professionals as a part of the Medical Records and Health Information Technician field and projects a 20% increase in employment before 2018—representing over 37,000 new jobs. This projected growth will be triggered and sustained by the aging population and the increasing number of medical tests, treatments, and procedures. In comparison, the AHIMA study estimates that there will be a shortage of over 75,000 health information specialists, including medical coding and billing professionals, before 2014.

The Career Step Inpatient and Outpatient Medical Coding and Billing training program allows students to train for a new medical coding and billing career in less than a year while still ensuring that they gain the skills needed to gain employment after graduation. The program also allows students to broaden their career opportunities by simultaneously training for both the inpatient and outpatient coding specialties. For more information on the medical coding and billing field or Career Step’s training program, visit CareerStep. com/IOMCB-Top10 (http://careerstep. com/IOMCB-Top10/?uid=pub100629) or call 1-800-246-7837.

About Career Step

Career Step, a leading online healthcare education company, enjoys a tremendous market advantage in the industry by virtue of its reputation as an innovative, competency-based training company. Career Step is committed to helping each enrolling student graduate and successfully transition to a rewarding career.

Dehumidifier Retailer AchooAllergy. com Offers Tips for Controlling High Humidity

Dehumidifier Retailer AchooAllergy. com Offers Tips for Controlling High Humidity

Mold is a major health concern and thrives in high humidity. Homeowners and businesses alleviate mold by controlling humidity. Humidity is best controlled by dehumidification. AchooAllergy. com is an expert dehumidifier retailer.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 4, 2009

Mold concerns are everywhere and too few people know the importance of controlling humidity in the battle against mold growth. Relative humidity is the measure of moisture content in the air relative to how much moisture the air could potentially hold at a given temperature. Allergists and environmental control experts all agree, relative humidity should be monitored and maintained between 40% and 50% to prevent mold growth. In addition to mold growth, high humidity levels can spur the dreaded dust mite to thrive.

AchooAllergy. com recently completed the renovation of its entire dehumidifier (http://www. achooallergy. com/dehumidifiers. asp) offering and offers solutions from residential room units to light commercial and industrial units that can operate efficiently in low temperatures. In addition to a comprehensive offering, AchooAllergy. com's associates underwent extensive product training and are now dehumidification experts.

Danby Dehumidifiers (http://www. achooallergy. com/compare-danby-dehumidifiers. asp) are popular among home owners, and consumers having more severe issues often opt for industrial / commercial units, such as ebac dehumidifiers (http://www. achooallergy. com/ebac-dehumidifiers. asp). Many models are Energy Star rated to save on power consumption.

In addition to using a dehumidifier, there are several other things that can be done to reduce humidity including:

Make sure their are no leaks or seepage in and around your home or office. Improper landscaping, leaking pipes, faulty gutters and clogged drains can all increase the amount of water and moisture in and around your home or office.

Use your dryer. Some of us like to allow certain articles of clothing to air dry for fear of shrinkage in the dryer. By allowing laundry to air dry in your home, you are increasing the overall humidity levels. Inspect the dryer vent to make sure it is actually vented to the exterior of your home and inspect the hose for cracks or leaks.

Always remember to use exhaust fans whenever possible. In the bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans can quickly remove excess moisture out of your home.

Keep doors open in your home and allow air to circulate from room to room. By allowing heat to circulate you can bring warm air to colder places where moisture is likely to condense.

Air out your home periodically.

Customers interested in learning more about the importance of dehumidification as it relates to mold growth and other health problems are encouraged to contact AchooAllergy. com. Through a brief consultation, an AchooAllergy. com associate will recommend an appropriate dehumidifier (http://www. achooallergy. com/dehumidifiers. asp) for even the toughest moisture problems. Most models qualify for free shipping and several models include a free humidity gauge.

AchooAllergy. com is a multi-channel retailer founded in 2000 which sells allergy and asthma relief products, air purifiers, HEPA vacuum cleaners, dehumidifiers, humidifiers, and allergy bedding via the internet, a product catalog, and a network of over 4,000 referring allergy physicians. The company also manufacturers Allergy Armor Allergy Bedding, boasting the smallest average pore size in the industry. As a pioneer in the field of allergy relief products, achooallergy. com is one of the most visited websites for allergy relief products and allergy relief information on the web.

Registration Opens for Two RFID Health-Care Events

Registration Opens for Two RFID Health-Care Events

RFID Journal announced that registration is now open for two one-day RFID in Health Care events in 2010—one in Los Angeles, the other in Philadelphia. Each event is focused on helping health-care providers understand how the technology can help them improve patient safety, hospital operations and supply chain efficiencies.

New York (PRWEB) April 30, 2010

RFID Journal, the world's leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, today announced that registration is open for two one-day conferences focused on helping health-care providers understand how the technology can help them improve patient safety, hospital operations and supply chain efficiencies. RFID in Health Care West will be held on June 15, 2010, at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa, in Los Angeles, Calif., and RFID in Health Care East will be held on Oct. 12, at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel, in Philadelphia, Penn.

"The application of RFID in the health-care sector is a very hot topic today, due to the increasing cost pressures on hospitals," said Mark Robert, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "We are launching these events in response to the demand for information by health-care professionals. As with all of our events, we will feature end users presenting objective case studies about how they are using different types of RFID technology to optimize their operations and improve patient outcomes."

Educational seminars at the RFID in Health Care events will cover the following topics:

Patient Monitoring: Learn how hospitals are employing RFID to track patients from check-in to checkout, thereby reducing the time nurses spend collecting information and confirming patient identities. Asset Tracking: Hospitals often have many assets that are underutilized. Real-world case studies will show how RFID systems can be employed to track assets in real time, thus improving asset utilization, lowering maintenance costs and decreasing the need to purchase additional assets. Supply Chain Tracking: Hospitals purchase high-value pharmaceuticals and other supplies that can be stolen, lost or misplaced. Learn how RFID can help companies better track goods from major suppliers, as well as reduce costs and shrinkage. Patient Safety: RFID can be used not only to ensure that patients are never administered the wrong medications, but also to prevent the misidentification of surgical patients, make sure sponges are not left in patients and ensure that surgical instruments are properly sterilized. Automated Billing: Some hospitals have begun to utilize RFID to automatically identify patients, the procedures they undergo and the drugs they are given, so that bills can be generated automatically, reducing labor and ensuring that the facilities are paid for care delivered.

RFID in Health Care West and East will present valuable opportunities for professional caregivers to learn how the latest RFID systems can help them improve patient care while lowering costs. "There is no doubt in my mind," Roberti stated, "that attendees to these two events will come away with information that will generate tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of dollars in annual savings for their organizations."

For more information, please visit the RFID in Health Care Web site, www. rfidjournalevents. com/healthcare/ (http://www. rfidjournalevents. com/healthcare/), or contact Attendee Registration at healthcare(at)rfidjournal(dot)com or (631) 249-4960.

Healthy Fast Food Targets Healthcare Retail, George Naddaff to Present UFood Grill at Paquin Conference

The healthcare retail industry's annual Healthcare Retail '08 Conference, (www. HealthcareRetail08.com) today announced that George Naddaff, Chairman and CEO of UFood Restaurant Group, will address the conference as a featured speaker.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 25, 2008

The healthcare retail industry's annual Healthcare Retail '08 Conference, (www. HealthcareRetail08.com) today announced that George Naddaff, Chairman and CEO of UFood Restaurant Group, will address the conference as a featured speaker. The conference takes place June 9 -10, 2008 at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"As American consumers' food tastes shift toward healthier choices, UFood Grill is poised to be a leader in the 'better-for-you' quick-serve restaurant category," stated Tony Paquin, CEO of The Paquin Group. "George's previous success as an innovator in the restaurant franchising industry and his plans to target the hospital market makes this a must-see presentation for all hospital executives."

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to meet with George and to discuss a partnership between their hospitals and his restaurant group.

George is frequently featured in publications such as Forbes, Entrepreneur, Success, The Wall Street Journal, and most recently in the February 2008 issue of Inc. Magazine. The magazine described him as America's franchising guru. Naddaff is most known for the stunning success of Boston Market, originally Boston Chicken, which he sold in 1992 to a group of Blockbuster Video executives and shared in its record-setting IPO (143% first-day increase) in 1993.

UFood Grill offers a healthy lifestyle alternative in the fast-casual restaurant place. The restaurant group is committed to providing great-tasting fast food that consumers can feel good about eating. UFood Grill has recently partnered with George Foreman to spread awareness about healthy, quick-serve dining.

The Healthcare Retail '08 Conference is sponsored by The Paquin Group, the nation's leading healthcare retail consultancy, and is the premier meeting event for hospitals and healthcare organizations considering or currently implementing a retail strategy. The sale of healthcare-related products is a rapidly expanding market that generates revenues of more than $500 billion annually. It represents a highly profitable and sizable source of revenue for healthcare systems.

"Implementing a retail strategy is now seen as important for hospitals and healthcare systems to generate new, non-reimbursed revenue," stated Paquin.

The conference covers a complete range of healthcare retail topics, including specific information on how to assess and implement healthcare retail systems to capture a portion of this burgeoning market. These include hospital retail locations, ecommerce solutions, branding strategies, loyalty cards, private label brands, in-room education/television technology and medical day spas.

Lifeclinic International to Discuss the Benefits of Their Health Testing Stations for Maintaining Employee Wellness in Retail Environments at NACDS 2008 Annual Meeting

Lifeclinic International to Discuss the Benefits of Their Health Testing Stations for Maintaining Employee Wellness in Retail Environments at NACDS 2008 Annual Meeting

Featured at this year's conference will be Lifeclinic's imitative to encourage retail clients to utilize their blood pressure monitors and health testing stations for employee wellness.

Burtonsville, MD (PRWEB) April 23, 2008

Lifeclinic International, Inc. (http://www. lifeclinic. com), the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of automated blood pressure monitors and health testing stations, found in 25,000 pharmacies, will be discussing how its technology can also serve the retailer's employees at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (http://www. nacds. org) (NACDS ) Annual Meeting, The Breakers Hotel and Conference Center, Cabana #1, April 26-29, 2008, in Palm Beach, Florida.

"Traditionally, retailers provide our blood pressure monitors (http://www. lifeclinic. com/products. aspx) for their customers as a way to promote wellness and to help drive consumer traffic to the retailer's pharmacy where the unit resides. However, there's an incredible opportunity to serve a population of people who are at the store almost every day -- the retailer's employees," says Lifeclinic Senior Vice President, David Read.

He continues, "Lifeclinic is committed to helping our retail customers design and implement programs that can help control their organization's healthcare costs (http://www. lifeclinic. com/solutions. aspx). For example, when our health stations identify an employee who is pre-hypertensive, there is an opportunity for early intervention and education to promote generally recommended lifestyle changes, which in turn may allow the employee to forgo the need for costly medications, visits to the doctor and missed days of work. Obviously, this also benefits the employer's bottom-line. For those people who our health stations identify as being hypertensive, the employee's healthcare provider can be called upon to immediately address factors such as lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, obesity and bad lifestyle habits, and may also recommend inexpensive medication that will prevent the much higher costs of hospitalization and lost productivity."

Lifeclinic's latest line of automated health testing stations (http://www. lifeclinic. com/lc600.aspx) offer automated blood pressure, weight, body fat and blood oxygen tests. The health station's scalability allows for the integration of additional tests, such as those for sight, hearing and bone density, from multiple manufacturers. Peripheral input ports include IR, USB and Bluetooth for interfacing and uploading data from various personal health devices such as glucose meters and pedometers.

Consumers and employees can easily navigate through the health station's interface of test options, health information, and a database of the retailer's products, coupons and discounts, via a color LCD touch screen. Optional features include both a magnetic stripe and a barcode reader for retail loyalty card programs. The barcode reader can also generate multimedia product information, allowing consumers to retrieve tailored product information for general merchant-dise, HBA, OTC and Rx products.

Lifeclinic's blood pressure monitors and health stations are designed to help retailers and companies motivate people to become more actively involved in their health care. "Self-monitoring and self-education are crucial steps towards becoming healthier," said Read.

About Lifeclinic International, Inc.:

Lifeclinic was established in 1976 as Vita-Stat Medical Services, Inc. Since then, it has grown to be the world's largest supplier of commercial, automated, blood pressure monitors and health stations. Lifeclinic monitors can be found in over 30,000 pharmacies and 4,000 company and organizational wellness centers worldwide, accounting for 500 million blood pressure measure-ments annually. Lifeclinic monitors, health stations and management systems encourage individuals to take an active role in their healthcare and provide corporate management with tools to help reduce costs while simultaneously improving the health of individual employees. Lifeclinic monitors and health stations can be found throughout the United States and in many other countries worldwide.
