Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions Simplifies Medication Safety, Inventory Management for Community Oncology Practices
DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions today launched VitalPath(TM) Integrated Dispensing Solution, a Web-based automated medication dispensing system that is designed to make it easier for community oncology practices to improve patient safety, inventory and revenue management.
Many specialty medications used to treat various forms of cancer must be administered through a needle or catheter, often in community oncology offices. Given that specialty oncology medications can cost thousands of dollars per dose - it's critical that oncology practices effectively manage their medication inventories and accurately bill for medications they administer to patients. It's also critical that community oncology practices have access to tools that help them ensure the right medication is administered to the right patient at the right dose, every time.
Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions' new VitalPath(TM) Integrated Dispensing Solution addresses these needs.
"It's clear that Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions listened to the needs of oncology practices like ours when they built VitalPath," said Irene Lustria, CFO, California Cancer Associates for Research and Excellence (cCARE) in San Diego, Calif. "VitalPath is a powerful, intuitive tool that has helped us to optimize our medication dispensing and improve the way we manage, replenish and bill for the medications we administer to patients."
VitalPath(TM) Integrated Dispensing Solution is designed to help community oncology practices:
-- Increase patient safety - Unlike traditional automated dispensing
machines (ADMs) that print one drug per label, VitalPath prints up to
five drugs on a single label, helping practices save time and reduce
errors. It prints labels with Tall Man lettering, which helps staff to
distinguish between look-alike and sound-alike drug names. VitalPath
also empowers staff to dispense medications based upon patient-specific
clinical orders that are physician approved, reducing the opportunity
for errors that can be made when orders are placed manually.
-- Improve staff efficiency - VitalPath offers several features that reduce
administrative burdens related to inventory management and medication
dispensing. The VitalPath screen is easy to read and simple to use. It
displays specific drug descriptions, active ingredients and clinical
orders, including the route of administration. Clinical orders can be
cloned, or replicated, from previous orders directly from the dispensing
cabinet, eliminating the need to manually re-enter orders, which saves
time and reduces the possibility of errors. Because the tool can
electronically transfer patient clinical records from the practice's
electronic health records, clinicians can also review real-time patient
schedules and clinical orders. This reduces the chance for charting,
dosing or reimbursement errors.
-- Enhance practice revenue and charge capture - VitalPath also
automatically manages supplies and pharmaceuticals, tracks inventory and
calculates waste - helping practices improve billing accuracy. It
documents every action taken on the system, allowing practice managers
to use its reporting functions to reconcile invoices and inventory.
VitalPath can also automate the medication replenishment process and
facilitate more efficient inventory planning by automatically
determining which drugs are required for each patient, based on patient
needs, schedule or PAR level.
"We're committed to delivering community oncology practices the tools they need to streamline and automate the time-consuming tasks that take them away from patients," said Meghan FitzGerald, president, Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions. "VitalPath delivers on that commitment by simplifying inventory management and making it easier for practices to improve patient safety while improving their bottom lines."

Helping to launch the Tweet Punisher to a large Twitter audience is Justin Bieber who will send the first tweet incorporating the designated hashtag.
A uniquecombination of old equipment and new media, the Tweet Punisher holds an iPhone in its type guide where the metal keys strike, making every tweet a live demonstration of the unparalleled strength of the Cellairis Shell Shock: G-Class(TM) screen protector.

Webalo® Introduces the World's First Service That Provides Enterprise Mobility in Minutes(TM)
The self-service technology uses a web-based configuration process that can be mastered by anyone to provide direct smartphone and tablet access to enterprise applications and data
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Webalo, Inc. announced today the general availability of its cloud-based enterprise mobility service that makes it fast and easy to create secure, bi-directional, transactional mobile connections to the enterprise applications and data that employees rely on to do their jobs.
With today's launch of Webalo, The App for Enterprise(TM), complexity, time, and cost are no longer obstacles to enterprise mobility. Los Angeles-based Webalo, Inc. has made it possible to learn its technology and then configure and deploy enterprise-to-mobile tasks and workflows, all in under an hour. Customers sign up online at http://www.webalo.com for a free Webalo Cloud account and then sign in to learn how Webalo works and to configure connections to enterprise resources. As soon as a configuration is deployed, users can sign on to use it on Android, Apple, BlackBerry, and Windows smartphones and tablets.
Webalo delivers enterprise mobility more than 100x faster than traditional mobile application development methods. It also reduces the burden on IT by lowering development overhead and minimizing reliance on internal IT resources. The result is on-demand mobility that helps employees increase business efficiency and productivity.
"We are pleased to have selected Webalo for the mobility tools we need to more efficiently manage our inventory. Mobile solutions are increasingly critical to meet the ongoing replenishment demands of our Home Depot customer in more than 150 store locations across seven states," said Joe Perret, Vice President, Systems and Technology of Bell Nursery, one of the nation's largest greenhouse growers with growing operations in Maryland, Virginia, and Ohio. "We selected Webalo because the service is easy to deploy and configure on a variety of mobile platforms, and will scale quickly and cost effectively as our business continues to grow."
"Through our partnership with Webalo, an approved associate can initiate sophisticated search queries on his/her mobile device as easily as they can on a laptop. This capability can put information at the fingertips of decision makers wherever and whenever they need it." said John Ozsvath, Vice President - Information Services of Anixter, a global distributor of communications and security products, electrical and electronic wire and cable, fasteners and other small components. "Webalo is so easy to deploy that we were able to roll out numerous customized mobile applications throughout the company without overburdening the IT department."
"Traditional approaches to mobile application development don't reflect the speed and simplicity that people have come to expect from mobility," said Webalo CEO, Peter Price. "The time and cost involved force employees to wait in line for weeks or months while requirements are written, prototypes are created, apps are tested, and users are trained. In the time it takes for a mobile app kick-off meeting, Webalo customers can create and deploy extremely sophisticated long-tail mobile capabilities - the lookups, data entry, updates, approvals, and countless other workflows that they now have to perform on desktops and laptops. In today's all-mobile-all-the-time environment small businesses will require dozens of mobile apps, mid-market businesses hundreds, and Fortune-ranked businesses thousands. At Webalo we've built an economically scalable service that will enable these companies to meet their mobile requirements for pennies an app and do it in a fraction of the usual time. It's mobility the way people want it to be - fast, easy, and affordable."
Analysts understand the impact of mobility, the shift to BYOD and how traditional software development processes don't apply in today's mobile world. "The rise of 'bring your own device' programs is the single most radical shift in the economics of client computing for business since PCs invaded the workplace," said David Willis, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst, Gartner Research. "Mobile innovation is now driven more by consumer markets than by business markets. Affordability is not only putting very powerful technology in the hands of consumers, but those consumers are also upgrading at a much-faster rate. Thus, organizations may keep up with mobile technology advancements more effectively by aligning to the consumer, rather than maintaining the much-slower pace of business technology adoption, with its long cycle of detailed requirements analysis, established refresh rates and centralized procurement heritage."*
Webalo offers three versions of its product to meet the specific mobility needs of its customers:

PrescribeWellness Launches Solution to Help Control Hospital Readmissions
Service helps hospitals improve patient satisfaction scores
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PrescribeWellness today announced the release of its Transitional Care Intervention (TCI) solution to help reduce controllable readmissions for hospitals across the United States.
On October 1st, the Value Based Purchasing portion of the Affordable Care Act went into effect, shifting some of the readmission responsibilities to different community organizations. The PrescribeWellness TCI platform automates the delivery of critical educational and motivational information based on the individual's diagnosis, condition, risk factors and needs. It includes built-in reminders for appointments and medication adherence in the patient's language and channel of choice. Real-time reporting allows providers to instantly identify patients that need more intensive support.
"Nearly 20 percent of discharged Medicare patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days," said Al Babbington, CEO of PrescribeWellness. "Many of these readmissions are controllable. Using our unique Voice of Authority methodology patients receive support in the voice of their provider, driving greater compliance to appointments, medications and other discharge instructions."
Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MEDPAC) findings indicate that 19 percent of Medicare patients have an adverse event within 30 days with two-thirds of these events relating to prescription drug interactions. Family, pharmacists and primary care physicians must be involved to reduce adverse events and improve care transitions. PrescribeWellness' partnerships with state pharmacy associations leverage a network of over 10,000 independent pharmacies to improve proper medication adherence.
Previous methods to assure safe transitions are very labor intensive with active involvement from case managers, social workers or other staff. Leveraging the latest in Web 2.0 tools, PrescribeWellness automates follow-up, collects compliance information and alerts others as necessary to properly support the patient.
The initial release includes content developed by medical professionals to address the unique needs of patients who have suffered heart failure, heart attacks, pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. These diseases represent the tracked and penalized areas by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. PrescribeWellness is offering hospitals facing penalties the opportunity to try TCI without cost or obligation.
"One exciting aspect about this solution is that it can be launched in a day and hospitals can instantly measure success and ROI," said Babbington.

TailoredMail Introduces EmailApptimizer: Turns Email Marketing Campaigns into Instant Mobile Touch-Screen Applications
EmailApptimizer is the first true email marketing and lead automation solution that increases user-engagement on mobile devices by up to 50 percent.
BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TailoredMail, the leader in mobile-optimized email marketing and lead-automation, today announced its new Version 6.0 with EmailApptimizer, an offering which turns emails, landing pages and microsites into instant mobile touch-screen applications. The solution dramatically improves engagement-rates by up to 50 percent, with virtually no additional effort on the marketer's part.
With smartphone and tablet purchases exploding, consumers are reading more of their emails on these devices. In a study of more than 150 million emails over a 12-month period, TailoredMail found the percent of emails being viewed on a mobile device represented 39 percent of the total - almost double that of a year ago. However, mobile click-through rates represented only 12 percent of total - primarily due to poorly-designed/rendered emails and landing pages.
Marketers typically design email marketing campaigns for a desktop environment - however, these non-mobile friendly emails simply aren't readable on a smartphone - and are frequently ignored. Additionally, links in the email often direct the recipient to a non-mobile-ready web page. The reality is this - the vast majority of businesses do not yet have a mobile-friendly company website or marketing landing-pages to support these campaigns, and internal know-how and expertise are hard to find.
EmailApptimizer solves this by taking content designed for the desktop, and automatically converting it to an instant touch-screen mobile application - complete with detailed tracking analytics. It also provides the ability to create stand-alone mobile micro-sites, or entire company websites.

It was a classic rags-to-riches story. Two college dropouts from California who
founded the world's highest-valued company. Steve Jobs was introduced to Steve Wozniak in
1969 and 'Woz' and Jobs became friends while working for Hewlett-Packard in 1970.
By 1976, Wozniak was refining his own computer design. The Altair 8800 had just made
the cover of Popular Electronics and Jobs quickly realised the potential of his friend's
invention. Apple Inc. was established in April 1976 and the first order of 50 computers
was assembled in the Jobs' family garage and delivered to the Byte Shop for $500 per unit.
Apple I was the first ready-made personal computer. Admittedly, the buyer still had to
provide the keyboard and monitor, but as Wozniak explained to enthusiasts at the Homebrew
Computer Club in July 1976, his design allowed the user to work on a "human-typable
keyboard instead of a stupid, cryptic front panel with a bunch of lights and switches".
Of the 200 Apple I computers ever produced, just 43 have survived, and of these only
six are in working order ("Apple 1 Registry", by Mike Willegal). One was sold for a record
$374,500 in June 2012 in New York, a second one of the six is being offered now by Auction
Team Breker in Germany on 24 November 2012.
The Cologne-based auctioneer has been holding record-breaking sales of "Science and
Technology" for 25 years. According to founder Uwe Breker, this is the first fully working
Apple I offered publically in Europe, and the only example with the original period
peripherals - transformer, Sony monitor and Datanetics ASCII keyboard - to have appeared
so far. He comments "There is a long-established market for antique 'Scientific
Instruments', whereas technology from the dawn of the computer age is attracting a great
new generation of collectors."
In addition to the media attention around Apple products (especially the early ones),
two motion pictures about the life of Steve Jobs have been announced for the end of the
year, one of which (by Sony Pictures) stars Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs.

RADWIN Chosen by Belgium Police for Major Wireless Video Surveillance Project
TEL AVIV, Israel, October 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
RADWIN'S wireless video solutions help reduce crime in Charleroi;
Systems transmit video from over 200 HD video cameras with superior image
RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), the global provider of Backhaul and Broadband
Wireless Solutions, today announced that it was chosen by the Belgium Police for a
large-scale SAFE CITY project in the city of Charleroi. RADWIN 5000 Point-to-Multipoint
and RADWIN 2000 Point-to-Point systems were deployed in a high-crime area in Charleroi,
and are used to deliver video from over 200 high-definition cameras installed throughout
the city back to police headquarters. This allows the police force to effectively monitor
public areas and swiftly respond to occurrences of crime and vandalism. Blue Vision
telecom, RADWIN's partner in Belgium, was in charge of project design and implementation.
RADWIN provides a unique solution for wireless video transmission. RADWIN 5000 base
stations deliver up to 250 Mbps with highest uplink capacity. The systems have low visual
impact and can aggregate traffic from multiple HD cameras and transmit video with superior
image quality in real-time. The powerful combination of outstanding performance,
innovative technology and cost-effective price makes RADWIN's offering the best in the
industry for high-quality video surveillance applications.
Geert Nauwelaerts and Wim Simons, managing partners at Blue Vision Telecom, stated:
"This deployment posed a major challenge because it required connectivity of 200 HD
cameras in one square kilometer area. No other manufacturer could guarantee the high
performance of multiple wireless connections in such a congested area. RADWIN, however,
proved this was possible. Incorporating advanced technologies such as GPS Synchronization
which eliminates collocation interference, as well as MIMO and OFDM technologies, RADWIN's
solutions were the best fit for this project."
Yaron Ziv, RADWIN's European Managing Director, said: "We are proud to have been
chosen for this project based upon our proven track record of building high-capacity
wireless video networks worldwide. RADWIN today provides a comprehensive solution that
delivers actionable surveillance information 24/7. Our Point-to-Multipoint and
Point-to-Point systems are delivering real results, improving the safety and wellbeing of
the citizens of Charleroi, Belgium."

BGR Website Launches THE NEW BGR, With Complete Redesign.
Leading mobile and gadget brand redefines the category with new look and remarkable user experience.
NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Early this morning, Jonathan Geller--President and General Manager of BGR Media, Inc. and Editor-in-chief of the BGR website--launched a new look for what is today's biggest mobile news destination in the world.
Today marks BGR's third redesign since the site's initial launch six years ago, though this redesign is noticeably its most thorough. Markedly apparent is the site's sharp rebranding, with new logos, colors, and what Jonathan calls, "a new personality." Jonathan and his team created a new logo to better reflect this site's growth and evolution, with what Jonathan describes as, "Clean-cut, strong and powerful, but still with an edge and personality."
Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Penske Media Corporation (PMC) Jay Penske said, "Jonathan has once again raised the bar in technology and gadget publishing--not only answering his users' requests, but significantly enhancing BGR.com's design and presentation layer on all platforms. The new BGR homepage design is second to none in one of the most exciting categories online."
Jonathan and his team have created the new BGR to better reflect today's internet experience, making its content clear and easy to navigate from a desktop, tablet and or mobile phone, with no redirects to a subdomain. Users will also find greater ease clicking through the site's galleries, hubs, review pages, tip us box, search area, integrated Twitter feeds, mini hubs, featured section pages, and more.
The new BGR clarifies its verticals and categories with its new hubs layout, making it easier for users to navigate to the categories they most like to read about. Sidebars have been eliminated and each page is full with, allowing content to flow as users read - from left to right. Real-time information is an aspect of the site that will continue to be enhanced over the next few weeks, with comments continually updating as well as new posts appearing if they go up while a user browses the homepage.
BGR is pleased to have partnered with Motorola on its re-launch and rebranding. Motorola has also stepped in to partner on a BGR app for Android, set to launch in the next couple weeks.
About BGR: Jonathan Geller is the founder of Boy Genius Report, now known as BGR. What began as a column on popular gadget blog Engadget quickly grew into one of the site's biggest draws, and Jonathan soon detached the wildly popular column to create what has since become the biggest mobile news destination in the world. BGR was acquired by leading digital media company PMC in April 2010 and Jonathan currently acts as President and General Manager of the newly formed BGR Media, Inc., and Editor-in-chief of the BGR website.
