Global Recognition for Asthma Care and Advances in Colorectal Screening

Open Door nurtures an organizational culture that values, invests in, and utilizes information systems to support our care teams in their workflows to advance patient care and population health.”

— Daren Wu, M.D., chief medical officer of Open Door Family Medical Centers.

OSSINING , NEW YORK, USA, December 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Open Door Family Medical Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center with six locations throughout Westchester and Putnam Counties, will be honored with the HIMSS Davies Award, the highest global recognition for successful implementation of information technology in the health care sector. The award recognizes the use of information technology to improve clinical outcomes and can be presented to hospitals, clinics, community health centers and public health organizations. Open Door earned the award for impressive improvements in asthma care at the organization’s School-Based Health Centers, and advancements in colorectal screening at community health centers. Open Door is the second community health center across the country to have earned the HIMSS Davies Award twice, having won previously in 2010.

“As only the second community health center to be recognized two times by the HIMSS Davies Award Program, Open Door Family Medical Center has demonstrated a commitment to using information technology to improve the population health of their community,” said Jonathan French, CPHIMS, senior director of quality and value-based care at HIMSS. “In addition, Open Door uses information technology to improve care delivery for underserved children with asthma by providing a high standard of care in local schools. For this, HIMSS is proud to recognize Open Door as a 2018 HIMSS Davies Community Health Award winner.”
Open Door serves nearly 57,000 patients each year, many of whom live at or below the federal poverty level of $25,100 per year for a family of four. Open Door identifies asthma as an area of particular concern among its patient population, especially for children. A decade ago, the organization found that only 15% of children suffering from asthma in schools served by Open Door were provided with a formal Asthma Action Plan, designed to aid in treatment of this chronic condition. In 2018, Open Door achieved its goal of providing 90% of children suffering from asthma with an Asthma Action Plan, and reduced missed school days due to asthma by 90%. In order to achieve these results, Open Door installed a series of protocols among its care teams, including the use of advanced software designed to offer detailed tracking of patient progress.

“Open Door nurtures an organizational culture that values, invests in, and utilizes information systems to support our care teams in their workflows to advance patient care and population health. Recognition as an award recipient is a validation of our efforts and encourages continued innovation in using technology to advance the Institute of Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim,” said Daren Wu, M.D., chief medical officer of Open Door Family Medical Centers.

Open Door also used the combination of data-driven analytics with the personalized approach provided by its care teams to tackle another challenging area for its patent population – screening for colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the third most common form of cancer in both men and women. It is also the third leading cause of cancer deaths. With an uninsured patient population more than 2 ½ times higher than statewide averages for Federally Qualified Health Centers, Open Door patients had often been lacking appropriate screening. In 2011, less than 20% of patients aged 50 to 75 at Open Door were appropriately screened for colorectal cancer.

In 2018, 60% of Open Door patients in the 50 -75 age range were screened for colorectal cancer. To achieve this outcome, Open Door improved the visibility and accessibility of patient data to clinicians and care team members by creating actionable, visual dashboards. In addition, electronic health records supported the team’s use of visit planning reports, clinician education, order sets, templates, and registries.

About Open Door Family Medical Center

Grief Recovery Specialist Jennifer Kasander to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

BANGOR, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, December 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jennifer Kasander is a woman who experienced more than one significant loss. After her sister passed on in 2001, she thought she’d recovered, only to see those horrible feelings return when Jennifer lost her husband (and the business they’d built and worked at together.) Jennifer feels that when we experience this kind of painful loss, we’re looking for a way to heal, and to find answers, but don’t know where to turn. People in grief seek ways cope with their emotions and rediscover the joy in life. Jennifer discovered a set of tools that were effective and can be used over and over again as you face life transitions; it was so powerful for her that Jennifer became one of the certified coaches in that method–The Grief Recovery Method.

Most of us, Jennifer says, think of grief and immediately associate it with death. While death and divorce are two of the most traumatic losses, there are many others that have emotional bearing. These losses can leave you in a state where you go through the motions, but don’t live with real passion and vitality. Loss, she says, is any significant change in our normal patterns of behavior. The experiences can vary in intensity and could be something like when your child is going off to college, your work schedule or career focus is suddenly different, your pet is struck by a car, or when a cherished friend stops talking to you. Regardless, loss can put you in a state of grief, and Jennifer says, our society does not teach us how to grieve very well. We are ill-equipped to handle the rush of emotions we face.

As a specialist in The Grief Recovery Method, Jennifer helps people identify the missing pieces, the trapped emotions, and the undelivered communications that keep us in a state of pain. She helps the grieving realize life still has meaning and to answer all those internal questions, and to take small and precise steps forward. Realizing that there is hope and they are not alone is the first part of helping many people heal.

One of the messages on Jennifer’s website reminds people that the grief processes may not be easy, but it is normal and natural. She says here are many myths that keep the grieving in pain. Jennifer reminds those going through a loss they will still feel sad sometimes, but they don’t have to be crippled by it. Knowing that there are ways to help you through the process and to feel vital and empowered again, can turn the memories from painful ones to fond ones.

Be sure to listen to Jennifer’s personal story and hear how she works through all those emotions, fears and regrets. You’ll also learn more about how she discovered her new purpose as a life coach and grief recovery specialist… and is now helping others to bounce back from their deep-felt losses.

CUTV News Radio will feature Jennifer Kasander in an Interview with Jim Masters on Wednesday, December 19 at 12:00 p.m. EST

Medicare on Video demystifies home care coverage and long term care with True Freedom premier plans.

Medicare Supplement Quotes

Keith Armbrecht

Online Medicare Resource Center

Long-term home healthcare is the preferred option for many seniors. True Freedom is all about you and those comforts you want most.

With a field issue contract, no underwriting, no forms, no deductibles, no copays and no age limits or previous hospitalization, additional coverage for seniors has never been this convenient.”

— Keith Armbrecht (Founder Medicare On Video)

TREASURE ISLAND, FL, UNITED STATES, December 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — No one knows how to break the ice and get people talking about an uncomfortable topic such as senior care at home than Keith Ambrecht. No one really wants to think about the dynamics of senior care at home such as professional nursing, personal care and health care aide for when they might become homebound. Just the same, old age is coming and it’s a blessing to those who have a well thought out plan and doom for those who have none. For those in the planning phase, Medicare on Video will prove to be the holy grail of adequate, candid and digestible information and news on Medicare available online.

True Freedom is comprehensive new senior home care membership program from the American Senior Services Inc. which is a whole new way of looking at home care services and a better option compared to traditional home care service providers. True Freedom offers members full benefits with no underwriting whatsoever, no age limits and no questions asked. While this is not an insurance policy to take out it actually goes along well with long term care insurance providing additional cushion.

“On my journeys I have met people and I have been introduced to services, and there are some services out there that have not gotten the attention they deserve. Specifically, I would like to bring your attention to a product called True Freedom…. I have first-hand knowledge of this product. ASSI have been in business since two thousand and eight and they are a viable alternative to traditional homecare services,” says Dr. Marion Somers a renowned Elder Care Expert.
Traditionally, obtaining additional cover for the elderly persons has been the spelling of a nightmare for primary caregivers while that doesn’t seem to stop the doctor from prescribing even more specialized care and treatment. Senior care at home has been obscenely expensive and with fewer benefits than its alternatives. Inflation has not helped with the value of benefits dwindling as living expenses skyrocket. Age limits and restrictions such as impossible to meet qualification requirements have all made such contracts null and void.

As for Medicare, it only covers most of the basics and part of specialized health care needs prescribed to most seniors and exactly none of the ones that we all eventually need. Meals, personal care and homemaker service are all the things that we need happening in our homes to lead happier lives at a ripe old age. These “gaps” in Medicare coverage are best filled with supplementary coverage as that which a True Freedom membership provides. No one wants to imagine themselves not being in a position to toilet, clothe and wash themselves but it is a harsh reality we have to brace for. Being ready means not being a burden or bother to those we love and having an easier time adjusting.

Looking at the current requirements for qualifications for Medicare basic home care it is pretty obvious that it is neither easy to obtain, nor comprehensive cover. Given all the restrictions and how much your getting enrolled depends on being completely incapacitated, it is hard to visualize how basic insurance can contribute to happiness and fulfilment at old age. Not to mention the tons of paperwork that is involved in getting Medicare to pay for benefits seniors enjoy.

The official Medicare website issues a note to its readers that the doctors may prescribe some additional care that is not covered and that this might have to be out of pocket. They clearly forget to mention the personal care bit which might not be prescribed by a doctor but one that seniors cannot live happily without.

Home health care coverage and long term elder care is something we all need to think about. Eventually, most of us will need some extra coverage that may not be included in basic traditional coverage. People already in their sixties and seventies or coming of that age need a suitable guide to navigate the various hoops of Medicare and for most people, nothing works better than a visual aid. Medicare no video has been an invaluable resource for most seniors providing the most recent information for better choices on Medicare supplementary coverage.

Among the key benefits of choosing True Freedom is that users get to save money on premium coverage and also in the way of discount rewards. That’s five percent off for annual payments alone and ten percent if you pay as a couple. Couples paying annually will get a staggering fifteen percent discount on their premium which is pretty generous a reward. Additionally, members get a 10% discount on premiums for every successive year that they do not use their cover for up to four years and a total discount of 40%.

True Freedom subscribers will now enjoy freedom from inflation since the hours purchased can be utilized years down the line and they will still be worth one hour as time is constant. There are platinum, gold, silver and bronze plans ranging between 1500 hours and 10000 hours. So what happens when you run through your entire first 1000 hours of a platinum plan? Well, there is a 90 day window in between then your hours rejuvenate and suddenly you have yet another 1000 hours of service and care to enjoy.

Just thinking about the obstacles to health and happiness that lie ahead due to old age can be nerve wrecking. That goes a long way to explain why most adults do not have supplementary coverage for elder care even though statically three out of every four adults will need home care due to illness or incapacitation related to old age. At this point, it is possible to feel rejected as no insurer wants to underwrite and relying on family members is being a burden to society. And while senior care can run obscenely expensive, True Freedom provides one of the best alternatives to traditional health insurance and supplementary coverage available on the market today.

Tosk Announces Clinical Study Results for TK-90 to Prevent Mucositis

Drug developer Tosk, Inc.,

Tosk drug TK-90 successful in preventing painful, dose-limiting mucositis caused by common cancer therapies.

Side effects suffered by cancer patients not only reduce their quality of life but can force physicians to limit cancer treatment. Also, side effects are often expensive to treat.”

— Brian Frenzel, CEO, Tosk, Inc.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA, USA, December 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Privately held biotechnology company, Tosk, Inc., announced today the successful completion of the Company’s human clinical study testing the safety and efficacy of its patented drug, TK-90, to prevent the painful and dose-limiting mucositis caused by widely used cancer therapies.

TK-90 was administered to 25 head and neck cancer patients receiving methotrexate to determine the optimal dose of treatment as well as to confirm safety. TK-90 proved effective in preventing virtually all of patients’ mucositis at the two higher doses tested. No TK-90 related side effects were observed in any patient group. A follow-up study is planned to confirm these results using the optimal dose and will be completed within the first half of 2019.
“Tosk’s mission is to improve the quality of life of cancer patients worldwide by providing them with highly effective, inexpensive drugs that eliminate toxic side effects and make certain drugs effective in patients that do not currently benefit from treatment,” Tosk’s CEO, Brian Frenzel, said. “Though side effect reduction is one of the 10 areas of emphasis in the U.S. government’s Cancer Moonshot initiative, it tends to be under appreciated. Side effects suffered by cancer patients not only reduce their quality of life but can force physicians to limit cancer treatment. Also, side effects are often expensive to treat, increasing the cost of care. Some cancer therapy side effects are permanent and reduce lifespan, even if the cancer is in remission. Our team at Tosk is dedicated to addressing these important, unmet medical needs.”

Tosk has two other promising side-effect-reducing drugs in the pipeline. TK-39 is a patented drug that blocks the cardiotoxicity caused by a class of widely-used cancer drugs known as the anthracyclines. These drugs are used to treat breast, bladder, and lung cancers, as well as lymphomas and leukemias. The damage to heart tissue from these drugs is permanent and limits the lifetime dosage of an otherwise effective cancer treatment. Tosk’s other side-effect-reducing drug, TK-88, is designed to block adverse effects caused by widely used platinum-based drugs, such as cisplatin and carboplatin. These side effects can include loss of kidney function, peripheral neuropathy, and hearing loss.

“The results of the TK-90 clinical study fully met our expectations,” said Frenzel. “The company has initiated a partner search to identify companies that would be a good fit for TK-90. We plan to grow and add other products to our pipeline using our proprietary discovery technologies, but we’ll let others take our drugs to market. These could include big pharma, specialty pharma, and supportive care oncology companies.”

About Tosk, Inc.

Tosk’s mission is to improve outcomes for cancer patients by discovering and developing new drugs that selectively block the adverse side effects of cancer therapies and make certain drugs effective in patients that currently do not benefit from treatment. Tosk uses proprietary drug screening methods using the common fruit fly to discover new drugs that might not be found using more conventional methods.

Palm Beach Area Plastic Surgeon Mark Pinsky is a World Leader in Aesthetic Procedures

Mark Pinsky

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Known internationally for his lectures on aesthetics and his unparalleled patient results, Dr. Mark Pinsky is recognized as a world leader in plastic surgery. This claim is backed up by decades of research and practice as well as distinctions from top publications and respected boards of medicine.

Dr. Mark Pinsky has transformed the lives of his patients in the Palm Beach area for years, helping them to achieve lasting results through surgical and non-surgical procedures for their face and body. His offerings set him apart from the local competition, but he is recognized internationally as a driving force behind the regulation and enhancement of the aesthetics industry as a whole.

He graduated med school from Ohio State University and performed his general surgery residency with the University of Texas, Health Sciences of Houston. It was also with the University of Texas that he performed his plastic surgery residency and proved excellence in the aesthetics field. He was later certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and began meeting patient goals through various aesthetic procedures.

Dr. Mark A Pinsky has earned many distinctions that have helped him build one of the most successful practices in the entire country. He was voted the Best Plastic Surgeon in Palm Beach County and named one of Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors. Beyond his local reach, readers may recognize his work in popular publications like Allure, New Beauty, Prevention, and In Touch magazine where he’s often profiled for his unique results. Dr. Pinsky has also appeared in the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Journal where he shared his knowledge on advancing techniques in breast lifts.

His international fame is in thanks to his many guest lectures, appearing to speak throughout North America, China, and South Korea. Dr. Mark Pinsky is regularly invited to showcase work on nationally syndicated radio and TV stations and to share his expertise and opinions on the latest advances in plastic surgery with his peers. In this way, he not only teaches audiences about various procedures, but he also coaches his peers to adopt the most sophisticated practices and procedures available today.

Dr. Mark Pinsky has built an especially significant reputation for his outstanding work in the field of breast surgery.

Dov Bechhofer on the FDA’s Announcement to Explore New Digital Health Avenues

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dov Bechhofer is a computer engineer exploring how technology shapes our present and what technological advancements we can expect in the future. Recently, the FDA Commissioner announced the administration would increase its focus on digital services moving forward, which means new potentials for doctors and patients alike.

In order for doctors to unveil new treatments and for patients to have a richer variety of procedural options, they have to first be evaluated for safety by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patients and doctors are dependent on the administration’s approval, so it’s refreshing to hear that the FDA is taking steps towards digital health contributions that will provide more sophisticated and state-of-the-art services.

Computer Engineer Dov Bechhofer keeps a close eye on emerging tech and he’s confident that the FDA’s decision to explore more digital health resources is something that can and will benefit everyone.

“We live in the future,” Dov Bechhofer says. “We have smart cars, smartphones, smart homes, and now smart cities on the rise. Smart hospitals were bound to come down the line.”

Advances in medical technology and treatments bring faster, more effective results to patients. Digital health also encompasses communication between doctors and patients, and can help to prioritize care for optimal service. Better tracking of patient conditions will make diagnosing and treating ailments easier and will require less dedicated time from busy physicians.

Soon, prescriptions may be filled through a smartphone app instead of patients having to go into a clinic to get checked out. Patients and consumers will be able to use digital health to better manage and track their health far more accurately than they can currently with wearable tech like Fitbits and iWatches.

Apart from that, the FDA is looking into advancements that will hopefully reduce inefficiencies, improve access, enhance quality, reduce costs, and make medicine and treatments more personalized for patients. Current devices will be updated to add digital features and new systems of categorization and storing medical data will be implemented.

“There’s a lot of money going into tech development,” says Dov Bechhofer. “Our devices are updating faster than ever with new capabilities and faster, more complex forms of data transfer unrolled each year. The medical industry can take advantage of this.”

The FDA will advance digital health through an official Digital Health Program that seeks to “better protect and promote public health and provide continued regulatory clarity.” It aims to accomplish this by encouraging collaborations and improving outreach to digital health customers. In addition, they will develop and implement regulatory strategies and policies for new digital health technologies.

The subject of digital health gains momentum as corporations and some of the world’s largest developers create new paths to the market. Some of the topics currently under discussion are wireless medical devices, mobile medical apps, telemedicine, new data systems, cybersecurity and more. With tech focus moving to more advanced machines and powerful systems, the FDA’s actions will be instrumental to the limits and potential of the future’s digital health.
