    The Premiere Health Care Event for Case Management Professionals, delivering Clinical, Professional and Educational Content in Chicago, IL

    Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) October 09, 2017

    Registration opens this week for the 28th Annual Case Management Society of America (CMSA) Conference & Expo, the only case management conference that stretches across the entire healthcare continuum. The conference will be held June 19- 23, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. Professionals will convene to elevate their careers and experience an event focused on case managers, proudly proclaiming “We Are Case Management.”

    This year’s content focuses on case managers and their roles in advocacy, leadership, as well as influencers and problem solvers! In support of case managers, CMSA continues to forge the future for this rapidly expanding healthcare profession. Conference main, concurrent and poster sessions are designed to spark conversations and innovations, provide strategies, solutions and practical tools to create successful initiatives for professional case managers and case management systems.

    “CMSA is the leader of innovation in case management practice. We lead in establishing standards of practice, and also in informing legislators, health care systems, and health care plans to establish a viable case management model,” said CMSA President Mary McLaughlin-Davis DNP, RN, MSN, ACNS-BC, CCM. “We look forward to welcoming our vendor partners who provide us with the latest in technology, services and educational opportunities; and to renewing our relationships with members across the country and across the world.”

    Concurrent and poster presentations provide a variety of continuing education opportunities, which are based on rigorous market research to provide the best programs possible. The focus this year is on several key practice settings, including acute care, workers’ compensation, discipline-specific case management, long term care, leadership, population health and managed care, community health programs and the patient-centered medical home.

    Educational sessions will give attendees an opportunity to build successful teams of care and consider what those changes mean across the continuum of care for all stakeholders. Additionally, sessions will address the very important issue of defining successful initiatives, establishing best practices to demonstrate impact and improve outcomes in every aspect of the patient’s healthcare journey, through every transition of care. CMSA continues to be the known experts in transition of care worldwide, and this continuity of care is intertwined throughout the conference, just as it is intertwined into all aspects of true case management.

    This year a leadership track has been added to empower case managers to lead not only themselves but also their colleagues and peers through the areas of education, certification, mentoring, preceptorship and experience. The content will also explore the paths to advanced case management – how case managers should be properly educated, trained and certified to meet the complex needs of all patients, healthcare systems and plans whether private or government.

    The 2018 event is expected to welcome well over 2,500 healthcare professionals to the conference, which includes additional pre-conference educational activities, certification courses, an opening destination event as well as a special military event for our active military, VA and DOD case managers. Over 250 companies will welcome attendees at CMSA’s 2018 Expo, providing information and demonstrations regarding the most current products and services. Attendees will part with new resources and connections to advance their abilities to recommend and implement the latest technologies when they return to their practice.

    Three keynote presenters will engage, entertain and inspire attendees through their unique and diverse perspectives. This year’s keynote presentations opens with Dr. Travis Stork, a board-certified emergency medicine physician and Emmy-nominated host of the award-winning talk show, The Doctors. The second keynote, Dr. Allan Hamilton, MD, FACS, is a best-selling author of the books “Lead With Your Heart” and The Scalpel and The Soul”. The conference closes with the motivational and award-winning journalist Dr. Rick Rigsby, President and CEO of Rigsby Communications, whose best-selling book, “Lessons From A Third Grade Dropout,” chronicles the life lessons he learned and continues to follow, from his father, a third grade dropout.

    CMSA executive director, Kathleen Fraser, remarked, “The CMSA conference is special and unique for so many reasons. High caliber and timely educational offerings are just the tip of the iceberg; at our conference, there are opportunities to bond with industry colleagues who have your same struggles, goals and successes. You can connect with the companies that make the tools and resources you use (or need) in your daily practice. Join us for our annual event in energetic and upbeat Chicago to truly understand why CMSA Annual is not just an event – it’s an experience.”

    The conference provides for the professional case manager to create her own unique experience with seven concurrent session blocks offered in addition to the keynote sessions and symposia. Through educational content, resources, exhibits, technology, public policy, cultural excursions and peer-to-peer networking, the attendee can have a custom experience which meets all his or her professional needs.

    Two new 3GPP release 12 models support maximize capacity and flexibility in the CBRS band

    Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 09, 2017

    Baicells Technologies, a provider of disruptive global LTE solutions, has announced at Wireless Internet Service Providers’ Association’s (WISPA) annual “WISPAPALOOZA” show the introduction of two dual carrier & carrier aggregation LTE base stations, the Nova 430 and the Nova 436. Built upon the 3GPP release 12 standard, each permits maximum downlink peak rate of 224 mbps. Supporting both mobile and fixed wireless markets, the target production release is mid-November 2017 for both models.

    The Nova 430 and Nova 436 deliver carrier aggregation, even across discontiguous Channels. This is critical for the upcoming CBRS bands, where “PAL” and “GAA” channels allocated by the SAS may not be contiguous. Additionally, each channel can be used to direct coverage to distinct areas, commonly called “split sector,” for maximum footprint and capacity in one package. Each carrier can have as high as 20 MHz of independent channel width for 40 MHz total. Like all Baicells eNBs, the 430 & 436 are light weight, draw low wattage, can be plug and play. Both include advanced capabilities such as RAN sharing, and SON features like Automatic Neighbor-cell Recognition (ANR) PCI confliction detection.

    “In the wireless operator world, it’s all about the four Cs – connection, coverage, capacity, and cost,” explained Patrick Leary, President of Baicells Technologies North America, Inc. “These new models deliver a hard bullseye on all four of these for our customers. We’ve also built them with lots of processing horsepower, so we’ve a long-term ability to upload future capabilities. These are going to rock the market.”

    The Nova 430 is a 4-port 24 dBm per LTE base station operating in the 3.65 GHz and future CBRS (3.55-3.7 GHz) frequencies. The Nova 436 has 4 ports and yields 36 dBm per port. The units will ship with everything needed to mount and deploy except power cabling and antenna. There are no re-occurring license fees with Baicells and no hidden costs.

    A proud member of WISPA, Baicells solutions are available via several select channels listed on our http://www.na.baicells.com website.

    About Baicells

    Baicells is a privately-held, high tech company with offices in China and USA.

    San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 09, 2017

    The San Diego employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik filed a proposed class action Complaint against Meyer Logistics, Inc., that allegedly asserts claims on behalf of a nationwide class alleging Meyer Logistics, Inc., violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act in the conducting of background checks on their employees. The Meyer Logistics, Inc., lawsuit Case No. 2:17-cv-07211 is currently pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read by clicking here.

    The lawsuit filed against Meyer Logistics, Inc. claims that the company failed to accurately "record and pay Plaintiff and other California Class Members for missed meal and rest breaks, and also overtime." Under the California Labor Code, an employee who is classified as non-exempt and is paid on an hourly basis must be paid overtime wages for time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and time worked over forty hours in a workweek. The Complaint also alleges Meyer Logistics, Inc., as a matter of corporate policy, practice and procedure, intentionally, knowingly and systematically failed to reimburse and indemnify employees for required business expenses incurred by the employees in direct consequence of discharging their duties on behalf of Meyer Logistics, Inc.

    Additionally, the class action lawsuit also alleges claims on behalf of a nationwide class under the Fair Credit Reporting Act stating that the company failed to adequately disclose and obtain authorization to conduct background checks on their employees. As alleged in the complaint, "The inclusion of the liability release clause in DEFENDANT's authorization forms invalidates the purported consent and also triggers statutory damages under the FCRA in the amount of up to $1,000 for each applicant that DEFENDANT obtained a consumer report without a facially valid authorization, as well as punitive damages, equitable relief, and attorneys' fees and costs."

    For more information about the class action lawsuit filed against Meyer Logistics, Inc., please call Attorney Nicholas J. De Blouw at (866) 771-7099.

    • Determine supplier acceptance rates for both P-Card and ePayables by world region and product category
    • Reveal reasons why suppliers accept Commercial Card payments and reasons why they resist
    • Measure availability, accuracy and uses of Level 2 and 3 data

    Nova 227 allows near immediate ROI even for isolated pockets of subscribers or devices

    Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 10, 2017

    Baicells Technologies, a provider of disruptive global LTE solutions, has announced at Wireless Internet Service Providers’ Association’s (WISPA) annual “WISPAPALOOZA” show the commercial release of a fully-featured LTE base station as a user cost of below $1,400 called the Nova 227. The Nova 227 is in stock at multiple Baicells distribution partners such as Double Radius, ISP Supplies, and WAV, Inc.

    It is common for private network operators, as well as commercial operators, to have small clusters of subscribers or devices that need to be connected, but may be isolated or otherwise difficult to economically connect. This often forces even LTE-based operators to use low cost and low performance Wi-Fi repeaters in an attempt to connect these pockets of users profitably. The Nova 227 was designed specifically for such applications, whether it is an apartment complex, cameras at a traffic intersection, RV parks, or a remote light industrial strip complex. Designed using standard PoE power and in a discreet form factor with an integrated panel antenna, the Nova 227 can be installed on a light pole or even another subscriber location for a zero lease cost micropop site.

    “Until today, the idea that one could connect as little as 10 customers with a $50 monthly ARPU and still yield a less than 3 month ROI using LTE was a laughable notion,” Patrick Leary, President of Baicells Technologies remarked, “Well, we’ve done a lot of things no one thought possible with LTE and we’ve done it again here. Operators – private and commercial – face this challenge routinely, so we asked our development team to build a product our customers could use opportunistically to solve this nagging challenge using LTE.

    The simplified fantasy soccer platform launched a tournament feature modeled after real-world soccer tournaments like the FIFA World Cup.

    San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2017

    Fan Futsal, a website offering simplified fantasy soccer games, announced the launch of its new tournament feature. The feature functions like real-world soccer tournaments, such as the FIFA World Cup, with users competing in a group stage before progressing to knockout rounds.

    “Our first-of-a-kind, team-based tournament style of play allows users to compete in a new, engaging way,” said Fan Futsal founder, Dave Knittel. “Many fans love watching tournaments like the World Cup; we’re confident they’ll love competing in a similar way.”

    Tournaments last between 4 and 7 weeks rather than a full season. Groups of 4, 8, 16, or 32 users are broken into groups of four. Just like teams in the World Cup, users play 3 head-to-head group stage matches before the top two teams in each group progress to the knockout rounds. Users can play using one of the seven different North American and European leagues offered on Fan Futsal.

    “The creation of our new tournament feature fits perfectly with Fan Futsal’s mission, which is to engage more of the tens of millions of soccer fans both in the U.S. and abroad.”

    About Fan Futsal

    San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2017

    Ulyngo has been selected by Chapman University’s Information Systems and Technologies for its Marketplace Platform to enable student-to-student commerce within its campus. Ulyngo’s services have been integrated into existing student web and mobile portals accessible on all devices utilizing Chapman’s single sign-on to authenticate students. With the new Chapman “Student Market”, students will be able to post and find products quickly and easily, communicate with each other safely through internal messaging, and securely make payments and receive disbursements through integrated payment processing.

    With the rise of marketplaces for consumers to buy and sell things, challenges such as counterfeit and fraud, safety, discovery, and usability continue to prevail. According to the US Department of Education, 20 million people will attend universities this year of which over 80% will engage in peer-to-peer commerce, many for the first time. Existing generic marketplaces like eBay, LetGo, and OfferUp are monopolized by fraudsters, power-sellers, and hobbyist sellers, while Craigslist has accounted for over 100 lives lost. Ulyngo is the first modern marketplace that is built for students and integrated directly into university systems to solve these fundamental problems for their campus life.

    “By being built exclusively for universities and their students, our service has the functionality that students want from the web and mobile apps they use while providing the security and trust they expect from their university,” stated Alex Jekowsky, CEO and Founder of Ulyngo. “We are excited to be working with Chapman University to simplify the lives of all Chapman Panthers.”

    “At Chapman, we are always looking for ways to enhance the student experience.,” said Helen Norris, CIO of Chapman University. “Adding Ulyngo to provides an easy-to-use student marketplace that will create a more sustainable and affordable campus experience.” Chapman University will oversee the marketplace with administrative and management tools provided by Ulyngo for monitoring, auditing, and reporting.

    The Student Government Association is supporting the roll-out and its President Mitchell Rosenberg stated, “We are committed to building awareness and adoption among our student body and the upcoming features to post and search by on-campus housing location, curriculum, and even lifestyle will make this a very relevant service for our students.”

    Chapman’s marketplace can be accessed by students by logging in with their student ID at studentmarket.chapman.edu or by clicking on the Buy and Sell button on both the Chapman University and CU Panther Experience app.

    The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties (MACC/DC) in collaboration with the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) and Delaware County Community College, is proud to announce the third year of “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” (WSCM).

    Chester, PA (PRWEB) October 10, 2017

    The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties (MACC/DC) in collaboration with the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) and Delaware County Community College, is proud to announce the third year of “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” (WSCM).

    This year’s program will be presented on the new “What’s So Cool” website http://www.WhatsSoCool.org. The “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” Student Video Contest gives 8th graders from over 14 school districts in Chester and Delaware counties the opportunity to connect directly with local manufacturers, document their experiences and present them in an educational and “cool” way through film media. The contest was created to generate excitement that draws students to consider manufacturing career paths. This year, there are 14 middle school teams partnered with 14 area-manufacturing companies. This expansion reflects the tremendous efforts MACC/DC and its partners have put forth in the community.

    The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties, in collaboration with the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) and Delaware County Community College, works toward shifting the outdated image of the manufacturing world as dull and dirty, to fun and exciting. One way they are tackling this issue is by hosting the annual What’s So Cool about Manufacturing? (WSCM) video contest.

    “This Commonwealth-wide contest is an excellent way to generate awareness of what an advanced manufacturing career may look like to our younger tech-savvy generation and will help dispel the outdated image of the industry,” said Gary W. Smith, President and CEO of the Chester County Economic Development Council. “It's a great introduction for the community to the lean and clean work environments consistent in the high-tech field of today's manufacturing.”

    Armed with a GoPro camera, teacher coach, specific guidelines, curiosity and creativity, each team will tour its respective manufacturer’s location and interview employees to gain a primary understanding of that field. The teams will then take their footage and translate what they find to be cool about that manufacturing company or industry into a short video. Training videos that were created last year for educators are Emmy award winning.

    “The WSCM video contest is a key event that is as important for the manufacturers as it is for students and their parents,” said Ralf Weiser, Manager of Project Management at Aerzen USA. “Many misperceptions exist about today’s manufacturing careers. Manufacturing has come back and is poised for even more sustainable growth. We are all missing out on attracting suitable high school and even college candidates because many misperceptions exist about the manufacturing workplaces. The average manufacturing career takes place in clean, well lit, and engaging workplaces. Pay and career growth with apprenticeship and even post-secondary education programs are additional above average benefits in this industry.”

    Weiser also noted “the video contest helps highlight these facts and also provides exposure to real life examples of how this can work for the student. Manufacturers benefit from this event two-fold: It boosts employee morale working with young students while highlighting their own careers. Also, they just may bump into future team members during the making of the videos. The WSCM contest is mutually rewarding culminating in the awards ceremony that helps engage the surrounding communities – we have got it made in Chester and Delaware Counties.”

    The students’ video submissions will be posted on the new “What’s So Cool” website http://www.WhatsSoCool.org. The videos will be open to the public for voting February 14 through 16, 2018 for the Viewer’s Choice Award, and judges will determine best videos in a variety of other categories. In March 2018, students, parents, educators, manufacturing leaders, community sponsors, local legislators and project partners will gather for an award ceremony to announce and acknowledge winning teams. Last year, over 27,000 votes were cast during the three-day period. Last year’s video submissions are available for viewing on the “What’s So Cool" website.

    About The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties (MACC/DC) is an initiative of the Chester County Economic Development Council in collaboration with DCCC and the CCWDB, led by manufacturers and supported by public partners and service providers.

    Family-focused rideshare expands leadership team and adds to Board of Advisors

    Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 10, 2017

    Zemcar, the family-focused rideshare that makes life easier for busy parents, has announced the appointment of Juliette Kayyem, a national leader in homeland security, former Assistant Secretary at DHS, and the author of “The Security Mom,” as CEO. Shahid Azim, Entrepreneur in Residence at Harvard University and a serial entrepreneur in consumer healthcare startups, also joins as President and Chief Operating Officer. The Company also appointed new Advisors: Donna Levin, co-founder of Care.com, Laura DeBonis, formerly of Google and EF Education First, Cara Natterson, pediatrician and New York Times best-selling author, and Alan Bersin, formerly California's Secretary of Education and Superintendent of Public Education in San Diego. Bilal Khan, formerly Founder and CEO, moves to the role of Board Chairman and will continue to be the head of product and technology.

    Kayyem brings to Zemcar decades of experience in business, government, academia and the private sector. Security is her career focus – she’s run one of the few female-owned security companies, and she provides insight on national security issues and incidents as a Security Analyst on CNN. She is the Belfer Lecturer in International Security at Harvard Kennedy School, where she teaches emerging leaders in emergency management and national security. She also sits on the Trust Advisory Board of AirBnB, and is a Board Member of MassINC and the American Red Cross of Massachusetts. As the “security mom,” Kayyem will continue to focus Zemcar’s efforts on delivering on Zemcar’s animating philosophy: safe drivers, secure riders.

    “Zemcar’s innovative model is focused on servicing today’s busy families with a safer, more trusted answer to transportation and scheduling hassles,” said Kayyem. “As a long-time advocate for safety and security, and a mother of three kids, I was drawn to its mission and strongly believe this is a service that every family can benefit from. As the convenience of rideshares grow in popularity, we must be diligent about security, especially when it comes to our children. I am committed to helping bring the Company to its next level – safely servicing families in the Greater Boston area and soon enough, other states with the same need.”

    The rideshare industry is at a precipice – while the value is now widely understood, the execution from the industry’s first-to-market players has caused questions about safety and security for both drivers and riders. At the same time, in a recent survey reported by NBC, 35% of parents have stated that managing their children’s transportation needs is considered more stressful than filing taxes. Zemcar is focused on solving this issue with game-changing safety and service features such as:

    •     The only rideshare in Massachusetts insured for minors under 18
    •     Ride monitoring via three-way communication
    •     Live video feed
    •     Circle of Trusted Drivers based on its patented algorithm

    Kayyem brings unmatched security experience that will help to further Zemcar’s safety-based mission and build trusted relationships with parents. “Juliette is one of the most recognizable, trusted and credible leaders in safety and security, and we are very excited to have her leadership as CEO. We have a big vision and excellent, scalable product, and she brings the unique skills required to take it to next level,” said Bilal Khan, Founder and Chief Technology Officer. “Together, with Shahid Azim as our new President and COO, and the new and illustrious additions to our Board of Advisors, we are building a unique and talented and world class team, and a distinctively innovative and safe rideshare for families.”

    Learn more about Zemcar and why Kayyem joined the Company in this video: http://bit.ly/JNKVid

    Shahid Azim, a former advisor, has also joined Zemcar as President and Chief Operating Officer. In his new role, Shahid will work closely with Juliette and the executive team to ensure successful execution of ideas to market delivery. Shahid has a track record of building world class teams around disruptive innovation and will focus on growth, talent and financing, Currently, he is a Partner at Ripple Ventures and also serves as an Entrepreneur in Residence at Harvard University, advising campus-wide research labs on commercialization and venture creation.

    Zemcar also added four new Advisory Board members:

    Donna Levin

    Levin’s experience building Care.com also lends itself well to Zemcar’s mission, and will guide Zemcar’s business strategy managing both a supply and demand side business model. Care.com is the world's largest online marketplace for finding and managing family care, with more than 25 million members, spanning 20 countries. Levin also helped build Upromise as Vice President of Operations. Levin is currently a Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan School of Management and serves as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.

    Laura DeBonis

    DeBonis brings a strong security background to the Advisory Board, having served on technology advisory boards in the past on security and privacy matters.  She serves as co-chair of the Technology Working Group of the Public Interest Declassification Board, to which she was appointed by President Obama in 2015. In the past, she has also held management positions at Google and EF Education First, serving in operational roles and in business development, and has served on project teams for the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

    Cara Natterson

    Cara Natterson is a pediatrician, consultant, and New York Times bestselling author of THE CARE AND KEEPING OF YOU, a 3-book series with over six million copies in print, and GUY STUFF, all published by American Girl. A graduate of Harvard College and Johns Hopkins Medical School, Cara trained in pediatrics at University of California at San Francisco. Cara also travels the country speaking to kids, parents, and companies about the issues and challenges facing tweens and teens.

    Alan Bersin

    Alan Bersin’s dedication to public service, education and security aligns well with Zemcar’s brand promise to families.
