Cancer Treatment Center of America Partners with NantHealth and AllScripts

In an exciting move to provide excellence in patient care, Cancer Treatment Centers of America have partnered with NantHealth and AllScripts to utilize Eviti®, a technology driven clinical decision support solution. The program integrates with electronic health records system Clinical Pathways and extrapolates information relevant to the patient. This information can include information about treatment options, statistics on recommended courses of action, comparison of treatment options, pricing information, and up-to-date information about clinical tests and trials relevant to the patient.

An additional advantage of Eviti® is information is instantly sent to all physicians involved in treatment, and billing is started immediately with patient’s insurance companies. This reduces the guesswork that has plagued doctors in recent years of understanding what is going on with different doctors the patient is working with. For example, the oncologist would have immediate access to recommendations from the patients pain management specialist; a needed surgery will be submitted for pre-approval to insurance more quickly, thereby receiving a faster approval, and saving vital time to treat patients before cancer can spread.

As stated on Wikipedia, Cancer Treatment Centers of America is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida and has five hospitals throughout the United States dedicated to providing cutting-edge oncology services, as well as diagnostic services, emotional support, nutritional information, and any other professional services needed to improve both the quality of care and the patient’s quality of life through all stages of cancer recovery.

Both inpatient and outpatient services are offered, and some local hospitals nearby offer discounted hotel rates for friends and families of patients. The staff is dedicated to patient satisfaction, which is evidenced by the fact over 92 percent of patients would recommend Cancer Treatment Centers of America to another person. The hospitals are accredited with multiple oncology organizations, radiology associations, and other review boards.

Goettl Air Conditioning Shows How To Attain Energy Efficiency

Goettl Air Conditioning a company that has been around for many years. They recently released a comprehensive list of ways to be more energy efficient with air conditioning units which also results in lower energy bills.

Among the tips offered by Goettl is the importance of weatherizing a home. An air conditioning unit is going to have to work much harder to keep a house cool if the home is leaky. Patching up places where the air is escaping the home as well as making sure the home has a proper amount of insulation is the most important factor in lowering bills. Also, the air conditioning unit should be kept in the shade in order to help it efficiently cool air before sending it into your home.

Thermostats should also be kept in a shaded spot – sun shining on it can fool it into thinking the house is hotter than it actually is. The best temperature to keep the house at is 78 degrees – each degree cooler than that increases the amount of energy used to keep the house cooler by 8%.

Another important tip is to have the air conditioning system tuned up which will restore it to more efficiency like when it was new. If a system is very old it’s a good idea to replace it as systems today are far more efficient than they were even 10 years ago.

Goettl Air Conditioning is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona and also has locations in Tuscon, Las Vegas, and areas of Southern California. They have been rapidly expanding over the last 5 years and will be opening several new offices over the next few years.

While Goettl is mostly known as an air conditioning company, they also service and install heating equipment as well as providing duct cleaning services.

Whitney Wolfe, Bumble CEO

Bumble, as a dating app is just one the many apps that exist to help people connect. There are advantages of the app though over other dating apps. The relationships that develop through the app are amazing to see. Here is some information about the app, the founder and the stories of how the Bumble app has helped bring couples together.

Deemed the feminist Tinder app, Bumble allows users to find a friend instead of a date online. It encourages users to swipe left or right depending on their impression of the photo. The only difference is that the people are to be friends rather than dates.

The couples that come from the app are amazing to consider. They find one another based on common interests. Of course each couple has connected based on what they think of the other for looks, but it is markedly different. It is different because it makes friends first, then who knows what could happen.

The founder Whitney Wolfe is a true entrepreneur. She is the CEO of Bumble, the company that brings all of those couples together. As a graduate of Southern Methodist University, she started her first company at 19. By 22, Whitney Wolfe was co-founding Tinder.

Founded in Austin, Texas, Whitney Wolfe had just come through filing a lawsuit against Tinder for sexual harassment when she began the Bumble App. She won $1 million from that settlement.

Today, the Bumble App is the fourth most popular app for social interactions in the targeted age group of 21 to 35. It works to make up for what Tinder failed to provide to women everywhere. It purposefully seeks to connect with people that are looking for substance, rather than just sex. It’s a welcome thing after what happened to Whitney Wolfe years ago.

ClassDojo Has Plans To Bring Mindfulness And De-Stressing Lessons To Its Platform

ClassDojo has been at work trying to change how young students think when it comes to participating in class. When it was first started, the ClassDojo founders and a team from Stanford University had mindset growth videos produced, but now they’re working on “mindfulness” lessons. These lessons encourage students to take a little time to stop and listen and not become stressed about their challenges. ClassDojo has become a major social media and learning platform for classrooms all over the country.

 

The founders of ClassDojo are two graduate students from the UK named Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don. They were app developers who decided to do something more than just make an app for profit. They wanted it to be something that could change things in a great area of need, and they soon thought of education and how classroom activities could be made better. Their app, ClassDojo started as a behavior reward app, but after seeing how Facebook and Instagram worked, they decided to follow a similar model that could keep parents in the classroom.

 

ClassDojo has parents and teachers constantly talking to each other and has allowed many schools to do away with parent-teacher meetings because of this. ClassDojo is completely free both to use the features and watch the student mindset growth videos, but there are plans in the works to bring about optional pay content that may also include textbooks. Administrators can be involved but teachers don’t have to have their approval to download the app.
