    Austin, TX (MMD Newswire) December 20, 2012 -- The alarming increase in cases of osteoporosis is costing the Australian government $1billion each year (Garvan Institute, Sydney). A whitepaper produced by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) revealed that the rise in diagnosis and osteoporosis treatment is not only costly, but the result of a 'therapy gap' in the prevention and management of osteoporosis. This is particularly true in rural and remote parts of Australia where a lack of easy access to bone mineral density (BMD) screening is virtually impossible.

    MindwaysCT, a leading medical device applications provider, has signed an exclusive distributorship agreement with Mindways Australia to deploy QCT Pro™ software throughout Australia, including remote areas with little or no access to effective bone density screening. QCT PRO™ software produces bone densitometry reports for the spine and hip, and can be combined with other standard CT imaging procedures.

    An estimated 2 million Australians are living with osteoporosis and many more go undiagnosed until they suffer a fracture; with hip fractures being the most prevalent. QCT technology produces DXA-equivalent reports of the hip, and results can be integrated into other treatment tools such as FRAX. QCT spine measurements are made in the trabecular bone - where the first signs of decreasing in bone mass can be identified, making it possible to detect and treat osteoporotic conditions sooner than other screening technology.

    MindwaysCT Australia Managing Director, Jeff Wheeler said, "After using QCT PRO™ for over 10 years, I am truly excited to be providing local support to the Australian market and expanding the role of QCT in early detection of osteoporosis and fracture prevention. QCT has some clear advantages for bone density measurement in being able to reliably measure BMD in patients even when they have arthritis, aortic calcification, scoliosis or they are obese".

    In addition, hospitals and clinics in rural areas and with limited budgets can implement QCT software and conduct BMD screening on their existing CT scanners. Because QCT scans take less than five minutes of CT scanner time, radiology departments can conduct BMD tests and improve equipment utilization without overburdening them.

    MindwaysCT Head of Business Development Alan Brett said, 'We are very pleased to offer an alternative to DXA in a region in desperate need of affordable and accessible BMD screening. I'm confident that our technology will be well received, particularly in remote areas where existing equipment can be used and both spine and hip reports can be produced from a low-dose abdominal CT scan with radiation doses comparable to a mammogram.'

    Mindways CT QCT Pro bone densitometry systems are TGA registered and qualify for a rebate via Medicare. The system can be used with any DICOM-capable CT scanner.

    For more information about MindwaysCT Australia or QCT Pro™ software visit or call 1800 739 780.

    About MindwaysCT Software, Inc.

    MindwaysCT produces Quantitative CT (QCT) bone densitometry products for spine and hip bone density measurements. Established in 1997, MindwaysCT has been a constant innovator in the field of CT bone densitometry, introducing the world's first commercial 3D QCT spine systems and CTXA hip systems. MindwaysCT premier product, QCT Pro™ uses CT images to derive DXA-like hip BMD measurements and volumetric spine BMD measurements. QCT Pro™ hip BMD measurements are interpreted in the same manner as DXA, while spine measurements provide exceptional sensitivity to short-term bone density change. QCT Pro™ is fast, easy, covered by insurance, and provides the same clinical utility as DXA at a fraction of its cost. MindwaysCT has offices in Austin, Texas and Kiel, Germany.

    December 20, 2012 (MMD Newswire) -- The recent release of Apple's iPhone 5 has led to a number of medium sized businesses adopting new mobile technologies. In response to the increased demand San-IT has expanded their staff to include several dedicated iPhone 5 support specialists.

    Many businesses have found the increased functionality of the device a blessing and a curse. While the advanced features of the device lend new capabilities to business operations they also introduce confusion that leads to organizational inefficiency.

    The specialists provide more than basic repair and diagnostic services for these devices. They also provide best practices and help to implement policies that minimize the chaos that can be introduced when businesses adopt radical new technologies.

    With a well established clientele, San-IT was uniquely positioned to implement such a niche service offering. With years of experience delivering kind of IT support Stockford businesses demand, San-IT's clients were quick to recognize the need for the recommended addition to their core services.

    Several organizations have opted to maintain at least a part-time presence of these new specialists. They also provide 24 hour support in the event that an iPhone 5 causes any distress to employees working the late shift.

    Upcoming "iPhone 5 adoption" clinics are scheduled for businesses not currently utilizing San-IT's services. Two sessions will be held at a private location in Stockport on January 2nd, 2012. Businesses interested in taking advantage of this free clinic can register by contacting San-IT directly.

    "This is the IT support Manchester and Stockport really need," said Adam Jones, who serves as a point of contact for one of San-IT's larger clients. "They don't always need full time IT support, but when new technologies come along they are hopeful that someone can help."

    San-IT has provided similar clinics and workshops in the past. There are several scheduled throughout the early part of 2013, including several focused on the new technologies offered in Windows 8. "When things change in the world of IT businesses need to assess whether or not it is worth making the switch. Our goal with these clinics and workshops is to help them make an informed decision. There are no marketing pitches or promotions. Most of the businesses that participate don't even have the budget to hire us for regular maintenance. We just want to give something useful to the Manchester and Stockport communities."

    Adam Jones can be contacted directly for more information.

    Columbia, MD (MMD Newswire) December 7, 2012 -- An Odenton, MD project manager for PCI Strategic Management recently earned the prestigious PMP® (Project Management Professional) credential, issued by the Project Management Institute (PMI). A project manager for 10 years, Kirkland C. Brown ( earned the credential through Cheetah Learning, ( an award-winning provider of global education and training for project managers and the winner of the 2008 Professional Development Provider of the Year award from PMI.

    "Earning my PMP marks a major step forward in my career development and my career prospects," said Kirkland. "With so much at stake, I wanted to make sure I could get it right the first time but didn't want to spend six months or more to prepare. When I learned about the four-day accelerated PMP exam prep at Cheetah Learning, its high pass rate of 95 percent and its money-back guarantee for the PMP exam prep program, I knew that was the way to go."

    According to the Project Management Institute, the PMP credential is a globally recognized standard that recognizes demonstrated knowledge and skill in leading and directing project teams and in delivering project results within the constraints of schedule, budget and resources. Candidates seeking certification as Project Management Professionals must meet benchmarks for experience and education, and pass a rigorous 200-question, four-hour test.

    "I was most impressed with how comprehensive the Cheetah Learning approach was, from advice on lifestyle changes (diet and exercise); to tools and techniques that helped me retain information quickly and easily using their proprietary accelerated learning techniques." Kirkland said.

    A graduate of Park University, Kirkland is currently a Senior Systems Engineer at PCI Strategic Management and is a member of PMI, INCOSE, and AFCEA.

    "I'd like to congratulate Kirkland on this important step," said Michelle LaBrosse, PMP, founder of Cheetah Learning and named one of the 25 Most Influential Women in Project Management in the World by PMI. "With all the challenges facing our country and our businesses, certified project managers can offer the skills and tools to make a difference," she said, "but Cheetah PMPs have an edge in learning how to achieve results quickly and effectively using our proprietary methods."

    Certified PMPs' grasp of the methodologies and tools of PMI streamlines each step in projects from planning and budgeting to implementation, monitoring and reporting. More and more public and private sector employers are requiring their project managers to obtain certification, and studies by the PMI and Certification magazine show that holders of the PMP credential can earn more money, and have more job security than those without the credential. PMI's certification program maintains an ISO 9001 accreditation in quality management systems.

    Ottawa, ON (MMD Newswire) December 7, 2012 -- EnWin Utilities Ltd. (EnWin) has chosen Harris Utilities to enhance its customer services and enable consumers to better manage their resources. EnWin will deploy NorthStar for its customer information system (CIS), MeterSense for its meter data management (MDM) and CustomerConnect for its customer engagement solution (CES).

    The Windsor local distribution company needed a system that would turn raw meter data into high-quality, actionable intelligence. EnWin wanted to give its customers the tools they need to measure, monitor and manage usage patterns, assess usage data and oversee account-management functions.

    The NorthStar solution will integrate the utility's key applications and provide access to actionable data across the entire CIS, which will enable EnWin to better focus on the customer-impacting aspects of its operations. By transforming meter data into valuable business intelligence and connecting utilities with their customers in innovative new ways, MeterSense and CustomerConnect will help EnWin improve operations and enhance customer service.

    "We're thrilled to be able to provide our customers with the tools they need to first understand and then better manage utility costs," said Michael Duben, Vice President, Customer Relations at EnWin. "Over the next 18 months we will implement technology that will empower our residential and commercial customers with the information they need to make smart decisions about consumption, conservation and cost control."

    "Utilities see how powerful it can be to bring the value and intelligence of the smart grid directly to consumers," said Norm Daigle, executive vice-president of Harris Utilities SmartWorks. "Putting end users in command of their own resource use is the quickest and most comprehensive way for utilities to achieve demand management."

    EnWin will be able to take essential data that residential and commercial consumers need to track and modify consumption, engage in crucial resource conservation programs, give them direct, unprecedented insight into their resource-use patterns and deliver a new bill format to its customers. With better awareness, their customers will make smarter choices, save money on their utility bills and help EnWin meet its conservation goals.

    "Over 40 utilities across Ontario have chosen Harris Utilities' smart grid technology in order to meet the province's new time-of-use regulations," said Daigle. "We draw upon 35 years' of industry-specific experience to deliver the most relevant and best possible solution for each one of our thousands of customers across North America and the Caribbean."

    EnWin turned to Harris Utilities not only because of its strength and expertise in the deregulated electric market in Ontario, but also its implementation experience and commitment to smart grid innovation.

    LANGLEY, British Columbia (MMD Newswire) December 7, 2012 -- Claire Suchy has been announced as the new Program Director for the H.E.R. Women's Treatment Facility at the LDR Holistic Addiction Wellness Centre in White Rock, British Columbia.

    Suchy has a Masters in Counselling Psychology and currently owns a private practice focusing on clients who have had trauma related to addiction. Her expertise specifically focuses on clients who have experienced traumas such as childhood abuse, physical and emotional abuse, accidents and injuries.

    "There is a direct relationship between trauma and addiction," says Suchy. "Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder causes your brain and body to constantly operate on high alert, so your body never gets a chance to recuperate. Your immune system is overworked meaning you probably get sick more often, your heart and lungs work way too hard, and your muscles get strained from being too tense. This constant state of stress puts you at risk for diabetes, heart attack, obesity, depression, concentration problems, and even certain types of cancer. What started as a way to protect you from trauma has become a real problem."

    Suchy's hope is to integrate the trauma theory and use trauma therapy when it is relevant to the the women undergoing treatment at the H.E.R. Women's Treatment Facility. With more research on trauma, she hopes to build a solid and complete holistic program for LDR's Holistic Programs.

    Jacksonville, FL (MMD Newswire) December 7, 2012 -- TriageLogic announces a new feature that enables their triage nurses to send secure, encrypted and HIPPA compliant text messages to the on-call providers. The on-call provider receives the encrypted text message and is able to decrypt it securely and see the entire message. This allows providers to call their patients back by clicking on the phone number on the screen. This module saves physicians the need to return the call to the nurse triage to get the patient's information, saving valuable physician time.

    An important feature of the system is that it does not require the provider to download an app or have any special software on their phone. According to Dr. Ravi Raheja, founder and CEO of TriageLogic, "The system works with any smartphone and can also be accessed securely via email if they choose. During the entire process, patient information never gets sent over the public cell phone networks and only the provider can decrypt the message. Therefore the system is completely secure and HIPAA-compliant."

    According to Dr. Charu Raheja, Chair of TriageLogic, "Any patient information that goes through the cell phone networks such as Verizon or ATT is not HIPAA-compliant nor is it secure. Legal teams are making it very clear that the call centers cannot text patient information unless it is in a secure, HIPAA-compliant format and only if the patient data never crosses cell phone networks." About 40% of providers today use smart phones, and an increasing number of physicians are depending on smartphones as their single mode of communication.

    TriageLogic's team of experts is able to understand the new requirements of technology and medicine and devise innovative, cost-effective solutions to work with existing platforms. The secure texting module provides a convenience that savestime for the provider and makes the triage process more efficient.

    Highlights of Nurse Triage On Call:
    - Gold standard protocols by Barton Schmitt, MD, and David Thompson, MD
    - Prompt call back times, 30 minutes or less
    - Experienced, highly trained registered nurses
    - Highly customized standing orders -- Triagelogic nurses follow your instructions 
      specific to your practice or each physician in  your practice
    - Integrated with any practice EMR
    - Return on investment reporting

    Advanced features: HIPAA compliant texting and more

    The Nobel Foundation today (112 years after start) is a faithful representative body of Jewish communities and organizations in nearly 100 countries from Argentina to Zimbabwe, across six continents. It seeks to foster the unity and creative survival of the Jewish people while maintaining its spiritual, cultural and social heritage.

    Towards these ends, the Nobel Foundation works to

    1. Secure the rights and safety Jews and Jewish communities around the world;

    2. Intensify the bonds of world Jewry and strengthen the ties of solidarity among Jewish communities everywhere;

    3. Act in coordination with and on behalf of Jewish communities before governmental, intergovernmental and other international authorities on matters concerning the Jewish people; and

    4. Cooperate with all peoples on the basis of universal ideas of peace, freedom and justice.

    The core principle of the Nobel Foundation today is that all Jews are responsible for one another. It seeks to achieve this by governing with consensus and celebrating unity in the Jews vast diversity. As they have been for nearly three quarters of a century (after the Holocaust), the Nobel Foundation continues to be the permanent address of the Jewish people.
