    Green Sun Medical’s connected dynamic scoliosis brace aids in treating adolescent scoliosis.

    SEATTLE (PRWEB) January 12, 2018

    Today, AngelMD’s Catalyst I LP (“the Fund”) announced it has invested in Green Sun Medical, LLC (“the Company”). Green Sun Medical is a Colorado-based medical device company that has developed the first substantial change to Adolescent Scoliosis bracing treatment in over 50 years. The Fund’s investment of $500,000 represents the amount needed by the Company to close its current round of financing which, along with an earlier investment by an AngelMD Syndicate, will make AngelMD Green Sun Medical’s largest investor.

    Even after decades of research, scoliosis is still a mystery to the medical community since most cases are idiopathic, meaning they have no known cause. What we do know is that, when detected early and treated appropriately, the spinal curve progression can be halted; and the debilitating effects of scoliosis can be greatly mitigated.

    Static bracing, the current standard of care, only saves one in three patients from spinal fusion surgery. Green Sun Medical’s approach is to use its comfortable dynamic brace to provide continuous corrective pressure while allowing the patients to move and function as normal teenagers. Pressure sensors in the brace allow the physicians to monitor remotely the performance of the brace to ensure that their patients are receiving the best possible treatment.

    The problem with the current braces on the market is that they’re only designed to prevent the scoliosis curve from getting worse. They are made from rigid plastic, which leads to patient discomfort and low compliance. Green Sun Medical’s solution addresses both issues, which leads to improved compliance and continuous corrective pressure on the patient’s spine.

    “Green Sun has compiled a world-class development team, including some of the world’s thought leaders in scoliosis treatment,” said Charlie Emley, Managing Partner of the Catalyst I Fund. Mr. Emley will join the Company’s Board of Directors as a Board Observer. “The leadership team is an ideal mix of healthcare, technical and marketing professionals who will guide Green Sun’s commercialization, the likes of which we don’t often see. We know that pediatric experts agreed with our opinion when Green Sun Medical received the top award at the 5th Annual Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium sponsored by the National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation (NCC-PDI)”

    “We know that AngelMD is always seeking out companies that not only have a novel approach, but also the team to build a successful company,” said Jamie Haggard, Cofounder and CEO of Green Sun Medical. “We’re excited to have AngelMD physician network as a partner in our success, and we’re proud to have Catalyst I LP be our largest investor.”

    New Technologies, Challenges and Responsibilities Documented in New Study from Database Trends and Applications and Quest Software

    NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J. (PRWEB) January 12, 2018

    Database Trends and Applications and Quest Software today announced the publication of a survey on new database administration trends. To gain insight into the evolving challenges of DBAs, Quest Software commissioned Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, to survey more than 200 database professionals and managers at organizations across North America amongst the subscribers of Database Trends and Applications.

    Over the last 10 years, major trends in technology have shaped and reshaped the ongoing role of the DBA, making their role more valuable than ever in many organizations,” said Dr. Elliot King, lead analyst and author of the survey. "Not only do DBAs manage both more database instances and a wider variety of relational database management systems, they are emerging as key influencers in the overall data management infrastructure."

    Amongst the findings, the survey shows that cloud technology currently plays a significant role in database hosting that will continue to grow. The survey found that 45% of respondents are currently managing relational databases in the cloud. Another third anticipate managing relational databases in the cloud within a year. The incorporation of cloud technologies will be the biggest challenge and, ultimately, will have the greatest impact on DBAs over the next three years. The survey also found that automation is a key factor in changing the way DBAs go about their responsibilities, as RDBMS vendors, database tools vendors, and cloud services provide vehicles for DBAs to more effectively perform their duties. By reducing the amount of time DBAs must spend on routine administrative tasks, automation is allowing them to expand their roles in other areas such as application development and other strategic IT initiatives.

    “As evidenced by this important new research, the role of today’s DBA is evolving as businesses increasingly adopt a variety of database platforms across the organization, both on premise and in the cloud, to manage the high volume of business-critical data and applications across the organization,” said Patrick O’Keeffe, Executive Director, Software Engineering, Quest Software. “Easy-to-use and reliable automation tools will play a critical role in helping DBAs navigate the changing database ecosystem and empower them play an active role in the growth of their business.”

    Mattel’s Gary Swisher took the stage again Friday night as the keynote speaker of ChiTAG’s annual Toy and Game Innovation Awards (TAGIEs). "We’re here to celebrate play,” said Swisher. “Play is the only reason humans still exist. Without play, we would have never progressed.” Following the presentation of awards in categories such as Game and Toy Inventors of the Year, Rising Star of the Year and Marketing Team of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Awards were given to industry giants; Adi Golad, founder of Goliath Games, and prolific toy and game designer, Judy Blau of J. Hope Designs. In an award that epitomizes the spirit of inventor advocacy core to the mission of ChiTAG, Lisa Giuli, president of Educational Insights, was honored for featuring her company’s inventors on product packaging.

    Olivia Wasilewski and Brynna Siewers won the TAGIE for Young Inventor of the Year. The elementary school students’ game, Ship of Treasures, was discovered at ChiTAG’s Young Inventor Challenge last year, and is now sold at TARGET nationwide. The pair created an unexpected moment, surprising fellow honoree, Lurie Children’s Hospital, with checks on behalf of themselves and their manufacturing partner, Pressman Toy. The donation was a percentage of the game’s profits and honored their schoolmate, Sophie Shields, who died of cancer earlier this year.

    The 16th annual Chicago Toy & Game Fair will take place again next year, the weekend before Thanksgiving. All details will be released as they become available at

    Manthan enables retailers to intelligently price products based on AI-powered insights and in alignment with their business objectives.The solution prescribes the optimal price for every product and accelerates execution of price changes.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (PRWEB) January 12, 2018

    Manthan, a global leader in AI-powered analytics solutions and a recognized innovator with a deep focus on new age technologies such as AI, ML and NLP, introduces another trendsetting utility for retailers in the form of intelligent pricing. Manthan’s latest innovation is a path-breaking algorithmic price optimization solution that aligns business objectives with everyday pricing decisions.

    The science of understanding variables that impact pricing, and predicting the optimal price that aligns with business objectives is complex. It involves extracting insights by analyzing a variety of internal and external data including demand patterns, sales data, customer data, shopper behavior indicators, event history, promotional data, inventory data, seasonal data, weather data, and so on. Leveraging these insights to derive optimal pricing for each product, at scale increases the complexity manifold. Not only is the process time and effort intensive, it is also a challenge to predict the outcome of the price change with accuracy.

    The prescriptive pricing solution from Manthan simplifies this for business users by analyzing business context, processing millions of data points, slicing and dicing data using powerful AI and machine learning algorithms and automatically providing accurate pricing recommendations. For instance, a category head who may be experiencing a shortfall in sales can aim to reverse the trend and meet sales targets by optimizing pricing or offering a 'price off' for products across regions, channels and store groups, for a limited period to boost sales.

    Once the objective is specified, the solution automatically analyzes all the relevant variables like existing inventory, demand, sales trend and past purchase. It also estimates price elasticity using historical demand and price variations. Based on the context, the system calculates short term demand using the price elasticity, seasonality, promotional details and other relevant data points, for a given price and recommends the optimal price for each SKU, across channels. The system will also surface outcomes like, potential sales uplift and margins for the recommended price change.

    Additionally, the solution provides business users with the flexibility to simulate other outcomes easily and make the most appropriate decision to meet the stated objective. It also helps accelerate execution of price changes by automating work flows and integrating with other enterprise systems. The application self-learns and adapts over time to improve outcomes and enhance the quality and accuracy of prescriptions.

    “With AI and ML, the system can analyze varied business contexts, historical impact of price changes and evolving customer scenarios to recommend optimal pricing. This is a big step forward in the way retailers make pricing decision,” said Seema Agarwal, VP & Head - Retail Analytics, Manthan.

    Manthan will be showcasing its prescriptive analytics solutions at booth #4311 of the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention and Expo at the NY, between Jan 14-16.

Today, Nierman Practice Management, with a team of over 35 employees, is one of the largest resources for helping dentists receive medical insurance reimbursement.

She wrote the first manual on dental to medical billing, “Successful Medical Insurance in Dentistry” and began lecturing and consulting to dentists nationwide. In 1991, Rose developed the first dental software to generate and streamline the necessary forms and paperwork required to bill medical insurance. This transformed the industry of medical billing in dentistry and set the tone for the years to come.

    “Rose has really made it easy for dentists to understand the necessary steps, requirements, and process to bill medical insurance for our patients. Her software and support is unlike any other. Nierman Practice Management has been a staple in the dental industry for three decades,” stated Mayoor Patel, DDS, MS; a long-time Nierman client.

    Over the past 30 years, Rose and her team have successfully helped thousands of dentists help hundreds of thousands of their patients. Rose’s secret to success is that she never stops learning and innovating. She commented, “It is extremely rewarding to work with the highest echelon of dental practices. We are looking forward to more innovative programs and working closely with our valued dental clients. We will continue dedicating ourselves to our mission of providing systems, world-class training, and support. If our actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, we’ve accomplished our mission.”
