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.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured?

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
