Geneva Healthcare Suite 2.0 previewing at Heart Rhythm 2015

Geneva_logoThis week at the Heart Rhythm Society’s 36th Annual Scientific Sessions in Boston, Geneva Healthcare will showcase a set of new features on The Geneva Healthcare Suite – an innovative technology platform for managing data from cardiac devices for cardiology practices and hospitals.

New features in The Geneva Healthcare Suite 2.0 focus on streamlining practice workflow and patient engagement with automated reminders, notifications and follow up for remote monitoring that create an open channel of communication between doctor and patient. In addition, Geneva’s new patient engagement features can potentially help providers meet some core objectives of CMS’ Stage 3 Meaningful Use including coordination of care through patient engagement.

“We are extremely focused on patient engagement for these practices. We are creating an advanced mobility platform that will allow for offices to automate scheduling and follow up for remote monitoring. This includes the ability for the physician and staff to directly collaborate with the patient through various communication channels,” said Yuri Sudhakar, CEO of Geneva Healthcare.

Facebook's intentions with Instant Articles under fire

WSJ_logoFacebook’s true intentions with a pending initiative called Instant Articles are being questioned by publishers concerned that content will be posted directly rather than linking back to their sites, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The idea is to feature high-quality content that will stand out within the newsfeed and load quickly on phones, but what is Facebook really planning? News sites rely on Facebook as the leading driver of referral traffic to their articles. Arrangements between Google and news organizations evolved over time, so there is precedent for concern.

“We saw the terms ultimately change (with Google),” said Mike Dyer, chief strategy officer at the Daily Beast. “Who is to say that couldn’t happen again?”

The Wall Street Journal has not yet agreed to join the Facebook program.

New York Times highlights Ice Energy's storage contracts with SCE

New York Times logoAn article in today’s New York Times titled “Energy-Storage Plans Gain Ground in California” highlights thermal energy storage company Ice Energy’s 16 contracts with Southern California Edison totaling 25.6 megawatts — enough to power 11,000 homes — using the simplest of solutions, ice.

Water is frozen into ice to replace the cooling power of AC units during peaks times. The ice freezes at night when demand is low. During the day, the units use the ice, rather than the AC unit’s compressor, to cool the hot refrigerant, cutting cooling costs substantially.

“We’re very excited you’re seeing storage as a real part of a solution,” said Ice Energy CEO Michael Hopkins in the article. He added that business owners save by buying their electricity at off-peak prices, and SCE avoids the need for seven or eight kilowatts of electricity per unit during peak periods.
