ATHENS, ATTICA, GREECE, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — When the managing director of Crystal Cut (also a software designer) saw his father write his blood pressure monitor readings on plain paper, he searched for a more effective solution. He understood that something different was needed for such a critical matter.

As can be read on the American Centers for Disease Control (CDC) page “Facts About Hypertension”, in 2018, nearly half a million deaths in the United States included hypertension as a primary or contributing cause. Moreover, nearly half of adults in the United States (108 million, or 45%) have hypertension (defined as a systolic blood pressure ≥ 130 mm Hg or a diastolic blood pressure ≥ 80 mm Hg) or are taking medication for hypertension. Moreover, high blood pressure costs the United States about $131 billion each year, averaged over 12 years from 2003 to 2014.

Physicians ask patients about their blood pressure history and, most of the time, recommend that they take measurements at home and keep them logged. Often, they give them an appropriate paper form on which to do so. Additionally, certain renowned organizations have created similar forms, which can be downloaded from their sites and printed for use as paper logs. Relevant paper logbooks can also be found online and in stores.

On the other hand, most contemporary blood pressure monitors have a memory that can store measurements, and many of them can connect to a smartphone or personal computer and share these measurements. Moreover, there are digital applications into which patients can import their measurements and share them with their physicians, deriving useful information depicted in auto-generated charts.

Crystal Cut considered many of these solutions and concluded that something different was needed. And although it has consistently developed digital solutions for its clients, including some of the largest domestic and multinational companies in Greece, it decided to create a paper log. It named it the “Effective Blood Pressure Log.”
Following detailed system analysis, Crystal Cut’s software designers have concluded that the problem of high or low blood pressure can be better understood if it is depicted on paper. The way someone writes on paper cannot be imported into a digital machine. Their letters can vary in many dimensions, even in color, depending on their condition. Moreover, notes can be kept for anything, even cryptographic ones, everywhere and in any way on paper. These factors, and many more, provide the log-keeper with a far better picture of their history than a digital app. And they need it because patients can help themselves even more effectively than their physicians.
For example, the number of times they had sex, when, and how it was, can all affect their blood pressure. Only the patient can make such correlations. There are myriad such factors, all of which are particular for each person. Observing their history can enable them to make deductions and maybe discuss some of them with their doctor. Digital applications simply cannot convey such a clear picture. That is why many people (and, significantly, those who are best educated) are still using paper calendars.
Still, physicians and patients alike need the convenience of a chart to depict a blood pressure–time series. The Effective Blood Pressure Log has this feature – blood pressure–time monthly tables – which its users can fill out. They also need to be able to compare data. That’s why each page of the log can hold up to 31 measurements: one month. And every double-page spread holds the morning measurements on the left-hand side and the evening’s on the right.

There is much more inside the log, which anyone can view and download from www.effectivebloodpressurelog.com absolutely free. It is also freely available to print and use. If a user prefers it as a ready paper logbook, they can buy it from Amazon for $7.50. It contains 128 pages, which can hold five years of data. Its ISBN is the 978-6188553811.

High blood pressure, or hypertension as it is known, has been characterized officially as the “silent killer”. The Effective Blood Pressure Log could prove a precious defense.

KLAIM Announces First of Its Kind Financing Solution For Medical Claims in the UAE

First of its Kind Financing Solution For Medical Claims in the UAE

DUBAI, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — KLAIM, a healthcare technology platform dedicated to making medical claim management simple and hassle-free, has just launched its new medical financing solution for the UAE market. Designed specifically for healthcare providers, this is the first-ever solution of its kind in the entire MENA region.

Rejections and delayed payments from insurance companies have always been a grave concern for healthcare providers in the UAE. Payments worth millions of dirhams remain held up and it takes up to six months to be cleared. Naturally, these delays lead to serious disruption in cash flow for healthcare providers. This is where the new financing solution from KLAIM comes in.

KLAIM healthcare receivables purchase is a financial plan that solves cash flow hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and laboratories problems resulting from outstanding insurance receivables. Thanks to advanced Healthcare analytics, the solution introduced by KLAIM allows healthcare providers to receive upfront payments for their claims within 48 hours, without waiting for their insurance companies to pay them. The company has already signed an agreement with Doctors Clinic and Diagnostic Center (DCDC) in Healthcare City to solve their medical claim payment issues and in several advanced discussions since the service was launched at the beginning of July.

“We identified that delay in the payments was a big problem when it comes to billing and payments. Traditionally banks have shied away from financing smaller institutions. We came up with this innovative solution that combines technology and finance for healthcare, to help the provider, especially the smaller ones, to keep the lights on and operate to offer the best service,” said Karim Dakki, Founder and CEO of KLAIM.

KLAIM’s new client Doctor Clinic and Diagnostic Center (DCDC) is a noted healthcare provider delivering world-class patient care and diagnostic services… Like many other healthcare providers in the region, DCDC was in a tight spot because of payment delays by insurance companies. It affected their performance as lots of time was lost following up on payments. A robust solution to this problem was essential for them to focus entirely on providing quality healthcare services.

“Solving this issue of delay in insurance payments will help us concentrate on our medical service; improve our service quality and daily performance of the customer care. At the same time, our staff will be paid on time and we will be able to concentrate more on our main business, which is medical service,” said Dr. Ahmad, the owner of the clinic DCDC.

“There is a big demand for this service in the medical field and it will help many clinics to succeed, survive, and improve at the same time. I'm sure that this will also have a significant positive impact on the entire medical service sector in Dubai,” Dr. Ahmad added.

West Palm Beach Farmers Market- Sir Hemp Co. Attendance Announcement. Local CBD hemp powerhouse announces attendance at the West Palm Beach Farmers Market.

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, USA, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sir Hemp Co. will be in attendance all season long at the West Palm Beach GreenMarket this upcoming fall. The local farmers market is the best in the area. It was named the #1 farmers market in the U.S. by USA Today 10 Best for 2021. The 2021-2022 market season begins in the fall and runs through April. It is held every Saturday beginning October 2, 2021. Market will be in downtown West Palm Beach, located at 101 S Clematis St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.

In addition to offering their product line of premium hemp extracts, Sir Hemp Co. owners want to bring awareness and education about the world of hemp extracts including CBD oil and edibles. “There are too many bad apples out on the market… ranging from mislabeled products on Amazon to local gas stations and vape shops. Come to find out that CBD products are not allowed on the Amazon platform, so these companies are not even operating within the confines of law as they are mislabeling their products. Not only that, prices and quality are all over the place” said Sir Hemp Founder and President, Alfredo Cernuda. “Some of these companies including retailers are not licensed by the State (Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services). There are companies operating in and around Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties, etc. that ‘sell’ CBD without them even being licensed by the State of Florida. The consumers need to be careful what they purchase to ingest. I hope to bring much needed awareness to those who stop by our tent at the City of West Palm Beach Farmers Market. Even if they don’t buy our products, they will be armed with the know-how on how to seek quality products.”

Sir Hemp Co. products all offer full transparency. Their products range from high potency full spectrum cbd oil to CBD for pets. The lab results are on their website as well as a QR code linking to the USDA approved independent laboratory results on each product. Not only do they sell to the local South Florida market but sell/ship directly to your door free of charge.

“We want to make it easy for our customers to obtain the quality in a hemp extract they deserve.”
Be sure not to miss City of West Palm Beach Farmers Market, Saturdays Starting on October 2, 2021 !

U.S. House Appropriations Bill Signals Sea Change in Psychedelic, Cannabis Research

Bill directs NIH to undertake and fund research into psychedelic-assisted therapies and potential benefits of cannabis, could accelerate the pace of research

Interest in psychedelic substances as potential treatments continues to grow alongside the body of evidence supporting their safety and efficacy for challenging mental health conditions.”

— Ismail Lourido Ali, J.D.

UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a consolidated appropriations package¹ funding the Department of Health and Human Services, among other agencies. The bill will next be sent to the Senate Appropriations Committee and, if passed and enacted, will mark a significant shift in Congressional support for research of psychoactive substances, a primary project of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (https://maps.org/) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, MAPS Public Benefit Corporation (https://mapsbublicbenefit.com).

While the bill text does not expressly mention psychedelic research, the accompanying report² clearly states that Federal agencies should undertake research of psychedelic-assisted therapies, particularly in support of mental health for Veterans:

"Psychedelic Treatments.—Despite the recent Department of Veterans Affairs’ 2020 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report that showed there were no significant increases in the veteran suicide rate from 2017 and 2018, the Committee is concerned that over 17 veterans on average continue to commit suicide each day, which is a number that has remained persistent over the past decade. There have been many recent studies and clinical trials demonstrating the positive impact of alternative therapies, including psychedelics, for treatment resistant post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depressive disorder, particularly for veteran participants. In light of growing interest in this area, the Committee encourages NIH and other relevant Federal agencies to undertake, and where appropriate expand, research to evaluate the effectiveness of psychedelic therapies in treating PTSD, major depressive disorder, and other serious mental health conditions."

MAPS recently released the results of a Phase 3 clinical trial³ demonstrating that MDMA-assisted therapy may be a safe and efficacious treatment for PTSD. When considered alongside analyses that it may also be a highly cost-effective⁴ treatment with long-lasting benefits⁵, the treatment is positioned to quickly become a front-line response if approved.

In the United States, MAPS has sponsored 10 completed FDA-authorized clinical trials⁶ of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD and other conditions; MAPS PBC is currently administering another seven MAPS-sponsored trials⁷. Since 2013, the NIH has allocated more than $821 million⁸ to research for PTSD treatments, yet essentially all funding for breakthrough-designated⁹ MDMA studies has been provided by philanthropic donors¹⁰. If passed, H.R. 4502 could provide critical funding to advance research of this treatment and other promising psychedelic-assisted therapies.

Ismail Lourido Ali, J.D., MAPS’ Interim Director of Policy & Advocacy for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), notes, “Though Congress still needs significant education and demystification regarding psychedelics, interest in psychedelic substances as potential treatments for mental health disorders continues to grow alongside the body of evidence supporting their safety and efficacy for challenging mental health conditions. MAPS is encouraged that the issue of psychedelic care continues to cut through partisan lines, and we look forward to continuing to work with and educate Congress about psychedelic research, therapy, and the harms of the War on Drugs.”

An amendment to remove barriers to “any activity that promotes the legalization of any drug or other substance in Schedule I” of the Controlled Substances Act received a 60% increased share of support. Though the amendment failed, it gained 50 votes, for a total of 140 yes votes, as compared to a vote on the same amendment taken two years ago.

The bill and report language also contained moves to align Federal policy with state laws legalizing marijuana for medical or social use; increase funding for research into the potential benefits of marijuana, assessing impairment, and the impacts of legalization; and policies to protect cannabis users in matters of housing, employment.

NAIA Commends the House for Including Funding in FY 2022 Minibus to Strengthen USDA Oversight of Canine Importation

NAIA Applauds the House for Including FY 2022 Minibus Funding to Protect the Health of People and Animals by Strengthening USDA Oversight of Dog Imports

We applaud these efforts to provide funding and bring attention to the challenges of proper federal oversight of dog imports.”

— Patti Strand, NAIA President

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA) commends the House for including key provisions in the FY 2022 Minibus Appropriations bill to protect animal and public health relative to the importation of dogs. The House Agriculture Appropriations bill provides $1 million in critical funding to strengthen USDA oversight of canine imports and to improve interagency coordination. Additionally, the Labor-HHS appropriations bill calls attention to the need to address challenges with CDC capabilities and procedures that would ensure coordination and oversight of dog imports.

"We applaud these efforts to provide funding and bring attention to the challenges of proper federal oversight of dog imports," said Patti Strand. NAIA calls on Congress to enact the Healthy Dog Importation Act (H.R. 4239). The HDIA would provide the framework needed to ensure that animals arriving into the US are healthy and that those on the frontlines working to ensure public health have the authorities, coordination, and resources needed to do their jobs. The HDIA would establish basic import standards to protect people, pets, and livestock from imported pathogens – standards that would help us avoid future disease outbreaks and eliminate the need to have federal dog import suspensions. We look forward to continuing to work with Congress and with a broad coalition of bill supporters to see it enacted.

Matthew Bussard Reveals How Medicare Works If You Won’t Retire at 65

Many seniors wonder how Medicare works if retirement is not an option upon reaching sixty-five. Medicare specialist Matthew Bussard addresses these concerns.

WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND, USA, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Matthew Bussard, a popular financial service broker in Rhode Island, works specifically with Medicare users. He carries such a high passion for his line of work that on the weekends, you will find Bussard volunteering at clinics, helping with Medicare enrollment, or answering Medicare questions.

“On multiple occasions, I’ve had seniors ask me how Medicare works if retirement is not a part of the plan when they reach sixty-five,” said Bussard.

No circumstance is the same, but when speaking in general terms, the choice to enroll in Medicare is determined by employer size and current workplace health insurance value. Those over the age of sixty-five who still have a job and get health insurance from their employer that employs twenty or more people do not have to immediately enroll in Medicare for the time being. However, if an organization employs fewer than twenty employees, employees sixty-five and older need to get their primary insurance through Medicare. That means those individuals need to get Medicare Parts A and B.

Seniors who work for an employer that employs less than twenty people that do not enroll in Medicare Parts A and B are at the risk of receiving little to no health care from their employer.

“No matter the number of employees at an individual’s job, I always encourage my clients to enroll in Medicare Part A on time, as there is no price to pay in doing so,” said Matthew Bussard.

Even those who currently receive health insurance from their employer can benefit from enrolling in Medicare Part A when turning sixty-five. There is no cost to enroll. In doing so, Medicare can act as a backup or secondary insurance plan that could potentially catch what primary insurance received through an employer does cover. Hospital stays are covered by Medicare Part A.

For those who are not claiming Social Security benefits and are actively working at sixty-five years old, it is critical to keep in mind that the government will not grant automatic enrollment in Medicare Part B. Medicare Part B is not free, but those turning sixty-five who are working at a business employing less than twenty people should enroll in Medicare Part B as soon as eligible.

The only people turning sixty-five who do not have the option to enroll in Medicare are those who make deposits towards a health savings account and want to keep contributing towards it. Medicare does not allow those enrolled to contribute to a health savings account.

New website connects older adults to engaging activities available nationwide

A Mighty Good Time is a one-stop-shop for in-person, virtual and phone-based events, classes and activities for those 50+.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Research shows that people who stay active and engaged in their worlds live longer, healthier, happier lives, but until now, finding activities geared for older adults meant searching through hundreds of individual of websites or mining through printed calendars. A Mighty Good Time (www.AMightyGoodTime.com) is a new website for adults 50+ that features in-person, virtual, and phone-accessible events from a variety of hosts across the U.S. It's now easier than ever for older adults to find experiences that help them stay social, active, and engaged as they age! The site is FREE for those seeking activities.

With increased isolation due to the pandemic, finding ways to stay healthy and engage in your world is more important than ever. In his article, Emerging from the Pandemic of Loneliness, Dr. Sanjay Gupta said, "Humans are social creatures, not meant to live without connection to others. Many studies have found that social isolation and loneliness are not good for the brain, body or spirit. In older adults, they're linked to symptoms such as pain, insomnia, depression, anxiety and even a shorter life expectancy. They're also associated with cognitive decline and a higher risk for Alzheimer's disease."

With a variety of wellness, entertainment, educational, social and creative experiences on the calendar, everyone is sure to find something that will pique their interest. "We are curating the best activities from providers all over the country so you don't have to, " said Amy Temperley, Co-Creator of A Mighty Good Time.
