NANUET, N.Y., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iMedicor (OTCBB: VMCI) today announced the launch of "Easier Than Pulling Teeth" (ETPT), a program designed to assist providers within the Careington dental community – among the nation's largest - with adherence to Meaningful Use guidelines and receipt of up to $63,750 in Federal Electronic Health Record (EHR) incentive funding over six years.
ETPT will include three stages, beginning with guiding interested and qualifying Careington practitioners through the Federal EHR registration process, then helping them select a certified Dental EHR solution, and culminating with assisting the dentists in the final Meaningful Use attestation phase that results in the release of the Federal Incentive Funds.
Through this program, Careington and iMedicor plan to address and remedy the dental community's slow-to-adopt participation in the current Federally-directed effort to move healthcare to an electronic-based records system.
The ETPT launch will initially be offered to Careington providers in the Middle Atlantic States - New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware – and then branch out to other regions of the country throughout 2013. According to iMedicor, those Careington practices with a minimum of 30% of their treated patients under Medicaid can qualify for incentive funds. Of the $63,750 in funding per dentist, payments are released each year, subject to meeting yearly qualifications, with an initial payment of $21,250 and five subsequent annual payments of $8,500.
For its services to Careington providers, iMedicor will receive an upfront consulting fee for each client practice and ongoing fees from participating providers during the six-year disbursement period.
iMedicor's Meaningful Use Consulting Services division was established in 2010 when the company signed an agreement to serve as a field agent with the New Jersey Health Information Technology Extension Center (NJ-HITEC), one of 63 federally-funded HITEC projects throughout the nation. iMedicor was recognized in July 2012 as the number one consulting agent in the NJ-HITEC project, which in turn became the number one HITEC project in the country. After helping hundreds of doctors through NJ-HITEC, iMedicor this year expanded its services to the dental community, assisting 20 of NJ-based Hamilton Dental Associates' 34 dentists with their adherence to Meaningful Use guidelines and receipt of Federal EHR Incentive Funds. Funding occurred in less than 10 weeks from the time of iMedicor's initial engagement with the dental group.
"Having such a strong partner like Careington, we are now positioned to reach out to so many dentists nationwide and let them benefit from iMedicor's wealth of experience in this area," said iMedicor CEO Fred Zolla. "The purpose of 'Easier Than Pulling Teeth' is to not just encourage dentists to comply with Meaningful Use standards and take advantage of the Federal incentive funding that is available to them, but also to help them understand and be successful with this somewhat complex process. iMedicor makes it easy for dentists to qualify, select a proper vendor and attest as required in order to receive their federal incentive funds and to be compliant with the Meaningful Use regulations. The iMedicor-Careington alliance will play a leading role in bringing dentists into the national digital healthcare conversation."
According to Greg Rudisill, Careington Senior VP, Strategic Partnerships, "Our alliance with iMedicor will simplify the process for our many dentists who qualify and bring a greater share of Federal EHR Incentive Funds into the dental community. We are pleased to be part of the first major healthcare program that addresses the needs of our dentists in such a straightforward and comprehensive manner."
iMedicor (http://www.imedicor.com/) is a provider of comprehensive healthcare communications solutions that enable physicians and other healthcare professionals to optimize the use of technology in managing their practices and participating in the federally-mandated transition from paper to Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Through two primary services, iMedicor offers low-cost, easy-to-adopt solutions that can be tailored to the needs of individual practices or larger organizations:
- SocialHIE, the first information exchange platform to offer secure messaging services within a social/professional networking architecture. SocialHIE enables any physician, clinic or hospital to transmit and share information such as patient data, test results and images within a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment – and even between disparate EHR systems. SocialHIE also offers additional advantages such as community development, the ability to create private healthcare information exchange networks with patient specific information, and access to a vast catalog of accredited continuing medical education (CME) programs.
- Meaningful Use Consulting Services. iMedicor is qualified to assist both primary care and specialist practices with EHR adoption and to help them attain Meaningful Use and receive incentive payments from the Federal Government for their compliance.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
