Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance Launches Getting Real Online™: A Virtual Community for Family Members

Online community that includes short, educational videos, chat forums and more

designed to help family navigate a loved one’s diagnosis

TUCSON, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance Launches Getting Real Online™: A Virtual Community for Family Members Online community that includes short, educational videos, chat forums and more designed to help care partners and adult children navigate a loved one’s movement disorder journey.

The job of a care partner can be tough. No matter how much you care for your loved one, no matter how strong your relationship is, there are shifts and changes and role reversals that come with a movement disorder diagnosis that are just downright hard. Introducing Getting Real Online™.

Care partners and adult children of people with movement disorders can join this FREE online community to learn about: advanced Parkinson’s, atypical Parkinson's, dementia, improving independence, creating motivation, role of neurology (Movement Disorder Specialists), preparing for medical appointments, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, managing advanced PD and more. With more than 40 topics recorded, new topics are added regularly.

“When you are dealing with it as a care partner you feel like a failure, you don't know what to do and everything you do is wrong, it's difficult. Elicit help from your team…an occupational therapist, a social worker…get people who have a different lens into the problem,” says Julia Wood, MOT, OTR/L.

The Getting Real Online™ virtual community that offers community and learning in a way that is engaging and inspiring. Nearly 400 hours of filming time and volunteer engagement from physicians and experts from across the country help build this increasingly expanding library of topics. Getting Real Online™ will also offer chat forums based on some of the specific topics where care partners and adult children can interact and share with others. The video library will be constantly evolving, and the series will also feature live programming each month – another opportunity for education, discussion and interaction.

Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance was founded six years ago with the intention to support everyone impacted by a movement disorder diagnosis, including family members. Basic education is readily available on the internet, but it often only scratches the surface of what the care partner and adult child really need and want to know. In PMD Alliance style, the organization heard the need, felt the pain, and wanted to meet them where they were, using design strategy and action. This educational platform will help equip care partners and adult children in practical ways that prepare them for the journey ahead and fill them with hope as they connect with others.

Getting Real Online™ can be accessed for FREE by going to: https://bit.ly/3mXC3K1

Business Leader & Practicing Physician Joins Firm ‘Where Problems Go to Die’

Clients know that when they need real results, the team led by Chairman McKeon will deliver, solving complex problems, building valuable relationships, and meeting client business objectives.”

— Dr. John Fleming

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The McKeon Group, a leading consulting and lobbying firm with unequaled proficiency to achieve results on Capitol Hill has added John Fleming, MD to its staff as a principal. Dr. Fleming’s expertise in the medical, business, and defense sectors¬ – combined with his insider perspective from decades of public service – make him an ideal addition. He joins a team of experts assembled by Chairman Howard P. “Buck” McKeon to guide clients through the complex political and regulatory environment of Washington, DC.

“Dr. Fleming’s substantial experience and political instincts fit perfectly into our firm,” stated McKeon Group Founder and Chairman Howard P. “Buck” McKeon. “Our clients trust this team to help them succeed in Washington, resolving issues that become mired in complex political and policy debates.”

Dr. Fleming brings experience as a four-term Member of Congress representing Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District from 2008-2017. He served on the House Armed Services Committee for all eight years of his Congressional service. More recently, he served as an official at Health and Human Services, Department of Commerce, and in the White House as deputy chief of staff, handling military and national security matters – including representing the chief of staff’s office in the many meetings and activities of the Coronavirus Task Force.

“I am thrilled and humbled to join the highly respected McKeon Group team, applying decades of public service and business leadership to work for our clients,” stated Dr. John Fleming. “Clients know that when they need real results, the team led by Chairman McKeon will deliver every time, solving complex problems, building valuable relationships, and meeting client business objectives.”

We appreciate the irony of a practicing physician serving at our firm ‘where problems go to die,” Chairman McKeon continued, “He has made positive differences in Congress, government agencies, the White House, and the private sector. He is more than a ‘utility player’ he is an ‘all-star’ with a ‘Hall of Fame’ record of providing ideas, counsel, intelligence, and solutions.”

Most recently, Dr. Fleming was detailed to the White House and appointed a senior presidential advisor with the title of Assistant to the President for Planning and Implementation, in March 2020. He was located in the West Wing and functioned as the deputy chief of staff, handling military and national security matters as well facilitating the implementation of new regulations, executive orders, and presidential memoranda. Various White House components reported to him. Dr. Fleming also met regularly with Operation Warp Speed, which developed COVID vaccines in record time and represented the chief of staff’s office in the meetings and activities of the Coronavirus Task Force.

In March 2019, Dr. Fleming was confirmed, with strong bipartisan support by the US Senate, to serve as Assistant Secretary of Economic Development at the US Department of Commerce. There, he worked on catalyzing investment into distressed communities with EDA grants as well as the application of Opportunity Zone investment incentives.

Dr. Fleming was appointed in 2017 to serve as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Health IT at the US Department of Health and Human Services. There, he worked on streamlining and optimizing the use of electronic health records, as well as improving system interoperability.

Medical Affairs Professional Society (MAPS) Announces Launch Excellence MasterClass 2021

MAPS Launch Excellence MasterClass Cities and Dates

MAPS Launch Excellence MasterClass Cities and Dates

Registration is now open for these immersive, situational-based, two-day training programs in the United States and Europe.”

— Medical Affairs Professional Society (MAPS)

GOLDEN, CO, USA, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Medical Affairs Professional Society (MAPS) is excited to announce the return of in-person Medical Affairs training, with Launch Excellence MasterClass 2021. Registration is now open for these immersive, situational-based, two-day training programs in the United States and Europe, offering intermediate/advanced level instruction focused on key competencies of Launch Excellence that MAPS deems critical for success. Participants should have some experience in the topic area (i.e., Launch Excellence) – looking to refine their skills and advance to the next level.

Each MasterClass is designed to have a maximum ratio of 8 participants per instructor. MAPS is limiting participation to 40-70 maximum per city and is expecting delegates from approximately 20-25 different companies per city. Each program is carefully designed to maximize best practice sharing and cross-industry networking, and will include access to a post-meeting online workspace for continued collaboration with the learning cohort, at no additional cost.

Cities and Dates:

• New York City: October 4-5
• Zurich: October 11-12
• Madrid: October 18-19
• Philadelphia: October 25-26
• Boston: November 1-2
• Chicago: November 15-16
• Paris: November 22-23
• London: November 29-30

In Medical Affairs and across the Biopharmaceutical and MedTech industries, there is no single definition of “Launch Excellence.” Indeed, all factors involved in attempting to quantify the success of pharmaceutical launches must first address launch readiness—the steps taken toward an optimal launch effort and a necessary precursor to Launch Excellence. Launch Excellence requires optimal alignment of launch strategy and execution to drive efficiency, effectiveness, compliance, consistency and best practices across countries, therapeutic areas, and management – all while allowing flexibility to accommodate market changes. It is critical that a launch strategy be in place, is understood, accepted, and applied throughout the organization to ensure clarity of the steps to be taken.

After participating in the Launch Excellence MasterClass program, participants should be better able to:

• Understand the leadership role Medical Affairs plays in Launch Excellence
• Identify the components of a successful launch from a company and external perspective, including markers of success
• Identify where Medical Affairs can add optimum value through the process
• Determine the expertise Medical Affairs bring at all stages of the process and how they can best interact internally and externally
• Demonstrate collaboration and alignment on shared goals and expectations when working across internal and external stakeholder networks
• Construct and embed tools, systems and processes that support execution
• Prepare teams at all levels of the Medical Affairs community to take responsibility for the appropriate strategic and implementation objectives

Learn more about MAPS MasterClass 2021 and register HERE.

About MAPS
MAPS is a globally recognized leader in education, training and best practice sharing – setting the standards for Medical Affairs excellence for over 6,000 members from 230+ companies, including 21 official industry partner companies (and counting). A certificate of completion will be provided at the conclusion of the MasterClass. In addition, an online workspace for the MasterClass cohort will be created immediately following the program for one year to allow continued best practice sharing, Q&A, and co-learning from peers in the cohort.

WELLTH SUPPORTS HEALTHCARE ENTITIES IN IMPROVING HEALTH EQUITY AND CARE PLAN ADHERENCE THROUGH BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS

Through partnerships with healthcare providers, Wellth is forecasted to reward chronically ill and low-income members $600,000 for care plan adherence in 2021

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wellth, a digital health platform designed to improve treatment adherence using behavioral economics, announced today that members earned over $145K in rewards in Q1, including chronically ill and often low-income patients of major healthcare providers. The company is pacing for reward growth in excess of 312% in 2021 over the previous year’s total reward distribution of roughly $400K.

Among Medicaid and Medicare populations, Wellth offers its members daily financial incentives for verifying adherence to prescribed care plans through daily check-ins—including prescribed medications and key metrics like blood sugar, weight, and blood pressure—with the member’s existing smartphone. Members can then redeem these rewards at milestone intervals throughout their program.

For low-income and disadvantaged populations, Wellth’s technology helps members achieve their full health potential, regardless of socially determined circumstances. The keys to the program’s success in promoting health equity are its use of existing technology—such as a member’s phone—to complete the check-in and its flexible, behavioral economics-structured rewards.

While the rewards vary depending on population and program, even small amounts go a long way. For example, in Wellth’s Medicaid populations—which cover one in five Americans—the reward can be the difference between covering the cost of transportation to and from work or paying a phone bill. For Medicare populations–where 25 percent of households have an annual income of less than $17,000, these rewards can go toward necessities such as food and transportation.

Empowering members to choose how and where to spend rewards based on individual circumstances helps reinforce health equity within these populations. Wellth rewards allowed care plan adherent members to purchase:

Groceries & meals (68%)
Household needs (20%)
Vehicle maintenance and fuel (7%)
Home repairs (5%)

“Our mission has always been to encourage the better health of our members,” Wellth CEO and founder Matthew Loper shares. “That means committing to support them in improving health through lasting behavior change—and in improving and enriching their quality of life with meaningful, behavioral economics-based reward systems that begin to address the health inequities so present in our country today.”

About Wellth: Wellth is a digital behavior change company that creates de novo motivation in the highest-risk, least engaged segment of the chronic disease population. Powered by a behavioral economics engine paired with an intuitive, consumer-grade smartphone experience designed to motivate and delight, Wellth rewards members with daily financial incentives for verifying adherence to prescribed care plans. Wellth has implemented commercial programs nationally with provider and insurer partners to improve care plan behaviors for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, congestive heart failure, asthma/COPD, behavioral health, HIV, substance use disorder, and gestational diabetes.

New Study: Pairing Nerve Stimulation with Rehabilitation Could Double Improvement of Hand and Arm Function After Stroke

Dr. Teresa Kimberley (left) works with a patient (center) and a grad assistant at the Brain Recovery Lab on the MGH Institute campus.

MGH Institute researcher Dr. Teresa Kimberley is senior author of article that reports results have potential to be one of most impressive advances in decades.

Brain stimulation may make rehabilitation activity even more impactful and lead to greater gains than we previously thought possible for people with neurologic disorders.”

— MGH Institute researcher Teresa Kimberley, PhD, PT

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Results of a study co-authored by MGH Institute of Health Professions researcher Teresa Kimberley, PhD, PT, have the potential to be one of the most impressive advances in decades to help improve the lives of patients who have had a stroke with resulting arm weakness.

In an article published April 22 in The Lancet, “Vagus Nerve Stimulation Paired with Rehabilitation for Upper Limb Motor Function After Ischaemic Stroke (VNS-REHAB): A Randomised, Blinded, Pivotal, Device Trial,” the study reports that patients who incorporated vagus nerve stimulation during physical or occupational therapy showed 2 to 3 times the improvement in arm and hand function compared to those who received intense rehabilitation with sham stimulation.

“How to optimize recovery after a stroke has been studied for decades, but there has been little shown to dramatically improve peoples’ daily lives,” said Dr. Kimberley, who is a senior author on both the pilot and pivotal vagus nerve stimulation studies, directs the MGH Institute’s Brain Recovery Lab, and is a professor of physical therapy at the Boston health sciences graduate school. “Using vagus nerve stimulation paired with repetitions of therapeutic movement appears to help ‘rewire’ the brain to strengthen the brain pathways needed to perform the everyday tasks people want to be able to do. This may be an important new tool to improve people’s lives.”

The 108 patient participants in the study were implanted with a VNS system called Vivistim, produced by MicroTransponder, Inc., an Austin-based, privately held medical device development company, which funded the study. During six weeks of in-clinic therapy followed by three months of home-based therapy, participants received a stimulation of the vagus nerve via a small electrical pulse from a cuff wrapped around the nerve, powered by a unit implanted under the skin near the clavicle. This pulse, delivered during their rehabilitation exercises, essentially helps the brain relearn how to perform tasks such as carrying a grocery bag, using a fork, or casting a fishing line.

Participants in the trial ranged from nine months to 10 years post-stroke. With 50%-60% of the 658,000 yearly stroke survivors in the United States being left with upper extremity motor deficits that persist for months or years, the findings suggest they may be able to improve function and perform some everyday tasks once again.

The study reported there were no unexpected or serious adverse events associated with the Vivistim system.

Kimberley, who has an appointment as research staff at Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Neurology and as core faculty in the hospital’s Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery, acknowledges the large team effort associated with running this trial, which would not have been possible without the multidisciplinary coordination provided by CNTR and the collaborative effort between the MGH Institute, MGH Neurology, and MGH Neurosurgery.

“We are only beginning to understand how to best stimulate the brain to regain function,” said Kimberley, who has researched various types of brain stimulation for over 15 years. “Rehabilitation has always been the key to maximizing recovery after a stroke. Brain stimulation, including methods such as vagus nerve stimulation, may make rehabilitation activity even more impactful and lead to greater gains than we previously thought possible for people with neurologic disorders.”

The Vivistim system currently is being reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and by regulatory agencies in the United Kingdom and European Union.

The Lancet article is available online.

The Lancet editorial is available online.

The World’s #1 Diabetes Reversal Program

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Help Your Diabetes (HYD), a leading telehealth firm with the world’s only patented Type 2 Diabetes reversal program, announced today that it selected global management consulting firm, NMS Consulting, Inc., as its strategic advisor for a comprehensive sales growth and market expansion program project.

We’ve worked very hard the past 12 years proving that we can predictably reverse Type 2 Diabetes all over the world and we were excited to receive our Patent last September.

Celebrating 25 Years of Business in Tampa Bay, Florida

A picture of the entire Data-Tech team celebrating 25 years of business at Tampa Joe's

25th-Anniversary Celebration

Data-Tech's service vehicles

Expanding our fleet allows us to respond to on-site support needs faster and more effectively

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chris Lietz founded Data-Tech 25 years ago in Tampa Bay, Florida in April of 1996. Chris founded Data-Tech intending to bring IT expertise and custom-fit solutions to our clients across Florida and the United States. Since its inception, Data-Tech’s service offerings have expanded from computer training to hardware-as-a-service in 2001, VoIP in 2006, a state-of-the-art data center, disaster recovery, business continuity, and remote management support in 2007. Most recently, Data-Tech has added compliance management and CMMC consulting in 2020.

As a leading Managed Service Provider in Tampa Bay, Data-Tech is constantly focused on reinvesting into the business. One of our current priorities for reinvestment is enhancing customer support services to ensure the best possible experience for our clients. So, with that in mind, Data-Tech has added two brand new service vehicles to our fleet to further improve our ability to service our clients across the State of Florida.

Expanding our fleet allows us to respond to on-site support needs faster and more effectively. This also allows for a shorter time-to-completion for our service tickets and happier clients. We saw benefits from the additional vehicles in our fleet almost instantly.

The pandemic has shown how vulnerable businesses and their employees are when working in a remote environment. The number of cyber threats and cyberattacks has surged, creating an urgency to become compliant and secure.

Data-Tech has been ahead of the curve in this regard and recently renewed our Soc 2 Type 2 compliance certification to show that we hold ourselves to the highest possible standard of compliance and security. In another effort to supply our clients with the highest level of service, we are also investing in becoming ISO 27001 compliant.

The reason for achieving both the Soc 2 Type 2 certification and the ISO 27001 certification is to show our prospective clients that we go above and beyond to ensure our client's business information is safe and they can rest assured that we will keep it secure.

Most companies can get by with either Soc 2 Type 2 or the ISO 27001 certification. Both show that a company is serious about ensuring security and they share about 96% of the same security controls. The main difference is that ISO 27001 is more rigorous and involves more work to become certified.

But Data-Tech did not stop there. This year Data-Tech also became a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) to assist the Department of Defense's supply chain with the enormous and complex amount of security compliance standards and regulations that will be implemented over the next 5 years through the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification initiative.

This initiative was created out of the need for more security standards and processes. The DoD found that the current security regulations were not effective at keeping the supply chain secured from cyberattacks & data breaches. Therefore, stricter rules needed to be enforced.

If you are one of the three hundred thousand vendors within the DoD supply chain and are worried about your company successfully reaching your desired level of CMMC, reach out to Data-Tech, a Registered Provider Organization (RPO), and we will connect you with one of our knowledgeable Registered Practitioners.

Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center Urges the Family of a Navy Veteran in Mississippi with Mesothelioma to Call Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste to Discuss Getting Much Better Compensation Results

"We are urging the family of a Navy Veteran with confirmed or suspected mesothelioma anywhere in Mississippi to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303.”

— Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI , USA, April 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging the family of a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed mesothelioma or suspected mesothelioma anywhere in Mississippi to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss what will be involved in getting better compensation results. Financial compensation for a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma might exceed a million dollars or be in the millions of dollars depending on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. Most Navy Veterans who develop mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard as attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss.

"If your loved one is a Navy Veteran with confirmed or suspected mesothelioma please do not delay starting the financial compensation process-or getting a basic understanding of how it works from someone who knows what they are talking about. Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and at a minimum he will be able to answer your questions. For direct access to attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303 anytime. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Mississippi the Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital:

* University of Mississippi Medical Center Jackson, Mississippi: https://www.umc.edu/cancerinstitute/

The Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center’s initiative is a service available to any diagnosed victim of mesothelioma throughout Mississippi in every community such as Jackson, Gulfport, Southaven, Hattiesburg, Biloxi, and Tupelo. https://Mississippi.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Mississippi include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers mill workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The increase in patient pool due to rising geriatric population globally contributed significantly to the growth of the neurology devices market during the historic period. According to the Population Reference Bureau, the share of population over the age of 65 in the global population increased from 8% in 2015 to 9% in 2019. The global population aged 65 years or over was 703 million in 2019. This rise in the geriatric population increased the demand for medical care and drove the healthcare expenditure.
