Remember Obamacare? The fight is far from over on the future of the Obama-era health insurance overhaul. Republicans are making a last-ditch effort this year to turn the program and the money over to the state. This isn't full Obamacare repeal, but it would make a world of sense. States would be free to experiment and find ways to reduce costs and provide better services.

As a result, NetSfere has now moved into the proof of concept phase with several German hospitals joining the service
MUNICH, Germany, June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSfere, an award-winning, secure mobile messaging service from Infinite Convergence Solutions, today announces ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK, a German-based association of decision makers from over 800 hospitals that develops digital solutions for challenges in healthcare business processes, has selected the secure enterprise messaging service as the winner of its 2018 Decision Maker Awards.Selected from a group of 12 vendor finalists, NetSfere’s key features of security, control, compliance and collaboration were identified as the solution for an urgent problem that German hospitals face – unregulated and unsecure communication among doctors, nurses and hospital employees.
NetSfere’s winning presentation was given by Franz Obermayer, Regional Vice President, Europe, at Infinite Convergence Solutions, who presented to approximately 300 German hospital leaders about “Getting Rid of the WhatsApp Dilemma Through Secure Mobile Communication in Hospitals.” The presentation outlined the following:
· Doctors, nurses and hospital employees currently use unregulated and unsecure consumer messaging applications to communicate with each other and share sensitive patient information, such as medical information or x-rays.
· While mobile messaging increases efficiency and productivity, the lack of control within these applications puts hospitals at risk of breaching patient safety and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws.
· NetSfere, an all-in-one secure communication platform that is backed by encrypted communication pathways that boast industry-leading, advanced Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) and 256-bit elliptical curve cryptography, is the solution.
“Receiving this recognition from the esteemed members of ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK, who are seeing first-hand how the problem of unregulated mobile messaging is jeopardizing hospitals, proves NetSfere’s high potential in the market,” said Obermayer. “We look forward to implementing NetSfere in even more hospitals across Germany throughout the next year and becoming the secure messenger of choice for the German healthcare sector.”
Accompanying Obermayer during the winning presentation was Ralf Boldt, head of IT of Klinikum Oldenburg, a general hospital in Oldenburg, Germany, that has already started implementing NetSfere to enhance and secure communication among its employees. NetSfere enables Klinikum Oldenburg employees to communicate with internal and external contacts through industry-leading security algorithms that support device-to-device encryption. With capabilities to not only communicate quickly and efficiently with a high-level of security, NetSfere also provides these employees a user-friendly interface that’s unmatched in comparison to other apps.
“We believe it is crucial to equip our employees with the mobile solutions they need to perform their jobs better, so employees aren’t left to communicate on unsecure consumer messaging applications,” said Boldt. “This is a huge dilemma nearly every hospital in Germany faces, but NetSfere has given us the necessary control to regulate and secure this communication.”
The five additional hospitals who have joined the proof of concept include: Vestische Caritas Hospitals, Westpfalz Hospital Group, University Hospital M*ü*nster, Nordoberpfalz Hospital Group, and St. Augustinus Hospital Group. NetSfere looks forward to welcoming additional hospitals to its enterprise messaging service and releasing results and use cases later this year through ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK’s program.
“NetSfere is a prime example of why we created ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK – to act as an incubator function for hospitals to trial the most critical digitalization projects in the healthcare industry,” said Dr. Pierre-Michael Meier, Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK. “Our association enables a win-win situation for clinics and industry vendors. Clinics are able to trial leading digitalization projects without risk and vendors achieve successful pilot and reference installations. Together, ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK and its members are driving the German healthcare system forward in order to better service patients”
Between now and February 2019, NetSfere is exhibiting and speaking at several events and conferences throughout ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK’s year-long decision maker cycle, including a summer camp in June to monitor progress and an event in November to present initial results. This July, NetSfere will also release the German version of its service, which not only features secure messaging, but also HD Audio one-to-one calling and Live video broadcast and streaming, all within its secure platform.
For more information about ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK, visit www.entscheiderfabrik.com. For more information about NetSfere, visit www.netsfere.com.
Since 2006, the goal of ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK has been to develop solutions for problems in business processes by means of digitalization projects and to show the target group of hospital decision makers the benefit-making contribution to the hospitals' success in a suitable manner. These objectives are achieved by the fact that the promotional associations of the ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK have decided to offer at least 10 hospitals each year the possibility to try out elected digitalization solutions for 12 months at no costs. In doing so, ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK has been taking over the incubator function for digitalization projects in the healthcare sector.
· For a period of 12 months, hospitals can "test" whether digitalization projects contribute to the hospital's success
· Hospitals can test "great ideas" without running the risk of spending money incorrectly
· IT and MedTech companies receive successful pilot and reference installations
· Hospitals and solution vendors achieve a win-win situationThis goal is supported by 33 associations, over 800 locations of hospitals, over 120 industry partners and Consultants selected by the associations.

MASHPEE, Mass. (PRWEB) June 06, 2018

The project owner is Outer Cape Health Services, a federally-qualified community health center serving the Lower and Outer Cape with locations in Harwich, Wellfleet and Provincetown.
When completed, the 2 story, 18,000 square foot facility will provide Outer Cape Health Services with 18 new examination and consultation rooms, a dispensing pharmacy, Lab drawing facilities, a community wellness space, administrative offices supporting specialized services for Women Infants and Children (WIC) along with health insurance eligibility and enrollment services for the community.

A new approach to medicine is yielding results for some patients.
(PRWEB) June 06, 2018
In a new episode on the “On Demand” show, Rob Lowe will be tackling Integrative Medicine. The program has used its platform to address issues impacting the modern society. This segment will discuss how Integrative Medicine can ensure that modern society practices and achieves a lifelong healthy lifestyle.
Viewers may have heard of the term “natural medicine.” Integrative Medicine is part of that trend. Integrative Medicine takes account of the patient’s body, spirit, and mind, and addresses all aspects of their lifestyle. This segment will highlight the differences between integrative medicine and the conventional medicine. There are several conditions that On Demand will highlight, especially chronic ones, which may be best treated using Integrative Medicine.
Other than treatment, integrative medicine offers several other services. This episode will feature some of them, including nutrition & wellness counseling, intravenous nutrition therapy, stress management, medical acupuncture, mindfulness training, and much more.
Most health insurance providers only cover selected treatments like acupuncture and some mind-body therapies. That said, this form of treatment has been proven successful. The episode will also feature benefits of using Integrative Medicine over conventional medicine in achieving long-term healthy lifestyles. On the plus side, integrative medicine incorporates all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative medicine, which are scientifically proved to be effective and safe.
Integrative medicine is tailored to fit the treatment needs of every patient as it carefully examines the different factors, including generic, lifestyle, and environmental factors affecting one’s health.
The “On Demand” show always produces quality and educative content. Viewers can tune in to learn more about Integrative Medicine. Reported by PRWeb 4 hours ago.

Buettner, who identified the five places in the world where people live the longest, healthiest lives–and founded Blue Zone wellness communities that put those longevity secrets into action–will immerse delegates in the science of living longer
MIAMI (PRWEB) June 06, 2018
The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of leaders in the $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, today announced that Dan Buettner will keynote at the 2018 conference taking place October 6-8 at Technogym Village in Cesena, Italy. Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow and best-selling author–and renowned for discovering the world’s “Blue Zones,” rare hotspots where people regularly live and thrive to age 100. He is also the founder of the Blue Zone Projects, wellness communities across the US that design in key Blue Zone lessons learned and have been successful in curbing obesity and smoking, and boosting overall quality of life and activity levels, for over five million Americans–often where other public health initiatives have failed.
His four books, "The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest,""Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way,""The Blue Zones of Happiness" and his latest, "The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World's Healthiest People," were all runaway bestsellers. Buettner also regularly appears on programs such as the Today Show, Oprah, NBC Nightly News and Good Morning America. In addition, he has keynoted at some of the most important global conferences, including TEDMED, Bill Clinton’s Health Matters Initiative and Google Zeitgeist. His speech at the 2018 World Economic Forum was chosen as “one of the best of Davos.” He also holds three Guinness World Records in distance cycling.
“Everyone in the wellness industry needs to understand the lessons from the Blue Zones, and Dan Buettner’s work is rapidly changing the ways the world thinks about health, wellness, happiness, prevention, aging and longevity. This is real-world science that’s far more relatable than dry statistics,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chairman and CEO. “And how perfect that he will be with us in Italy, which is home to Sardinia, one of the five Blue Zone Regions where the whole Blue Zone story began.”
"The Global Wellness Summit is a major opportunity to refocus on the true causes of disease. For the first time in human history, people are not dying of overwork and hunger. In fact, over two-thirds of the world population will likely die from (largely avoidable) chronic disease brought on because we’ve engineered physical activity out of our lives and we consume too many of the wrong kind of calories,” said Buettner. “The key to improving world health–and living longer lives–is reshaping our environment to make the healthy choice the default for people everywhere."
Blue Zone History & Insights
The first Blue Zone research (and the term itself) came from Dr. Giovanni Pes, a physician/demographer who studied the southern Italian island of Sardinia, whose population boasted extraordinarily high life expectancies. (For instance, it has the highest concentration of male centenarians in the world.) Dr. Pes, who will also present at the Summit, hypothesized that he would find a genetic variant supporting longevity there, but instead found that close family/social bonds, daily physical activity and a plant-based diet were key. Buettner expanded the research, identifying four other regions beyond Sardinia where people statistically live the longest: Okinawa, Japan; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Icaria, Greece; and the Seventh-Day Adventist community in Loma Linda, California. His findings appeared in a National Geographic cover story, "The Secrets of a Long Life", which, like his article in the New York Times, are two of the most popular ever for the publications.
Buettner, with a team of medical researchers, anthropologists and demographers, spent eight years studying why Blue Zone populations lived so much longer and happier (at least 12 years more than the 71-year global average). He identified the Power 9®, those shared lifestyle behaviors that keep people thriving to 100: 1) moderate regular physical activity (not exercise, but natural movement) 2) life purpose 3) moderate caloric intake 4) plant-heavy diets 5) stress reduction 6) moderate alcohol 7) social engagement 8) strong family life, and 9) engagement in spirituality/religion.
More on the Blue Zones Projects
Since 2010, Buettner has applied these nine lessons to new wellness community projects in the US called the Blue Zone Projects. An innovator in the $131 billion wellness community market, these projects (cities, neighborhoods, workplaces and universities) are grounded in the authentic lessons of Blue Zone regions, rather than designed in a boardroom. For each of the nine communities, whether in states like Iowa and Hawaii, or cities like Naples, Florida and the California beach cities of Redondo, Hermosa and Manhattan Beach, the goal is to transform how people live, work, learn and play so that a healthy choice is the easy choice.
Blue Zone Project developers work with governments, employers, health insurance companies, schools, grocery stores, restaurants and engineers to help people naturally move more, eat wisely and connect with others. The results have been double-digit drops in obesity and smoking rates, along with impressive increases in activity levels. For example, the California Beach Cities Project saw a 14 percent drop in obesity and a 30 percent decrease in smoking rates across the entire community after just two years.

Dublin, June 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "US Digital Therapeutics Market, Forecast to 2023" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.The overall digital therapeutics market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 30.7% from 2017 to 2023.Digital therapeutics are about to become a true medical alternative that will utilize communications-based technologies, apps, and software to improve patient outcomes and help to lower the cost of healthcare.
This report emphasizes the importance of clearly defining the term "digital therapeutics." In many areas of the evolving healthcare market, an important facet of understanding opportunity and strategy is effective definition and scoping of new terminology and concepts. The publisher reviews data that illustrate there is often an inconsistent definition of the term as well as the companies that are participating in this early market. The research reveals that there is a much smaller segment of the digital therapeutics market devoted to pure play participants that are developing true therapeutic solutions that will provide a medical-grade benefit to patients. The pure play market will require considerable research and development in partnership with pharmaceutical companies, and a US Food and Drug Administration certification for safety and efficacy after a clinical trial.
The report predicts that the digital therapeutics market will attract the interests of medical device companies, pharmaceutical industry participants, and investors. It is reasonable to foresee that several of the larger, established healthcare companies will carefully monitor progress in this space and make strategic moves as the smaller, new entrants demonstrate successful outcomes following randomized clinical trials.

The mHealth Market will Account for More Than $28 Billion in 2018 and the Research Estimates a Further Growth at a CAGR of Approximately 30% Over the Next Three YearsThe *mHealth (Mobile Healthcare) Ecosystem: 2018 - 2030 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts* report presents an in-depth assessment of the mHealth ecosystem including market drivers, challenges, enabling technologies, applications, key trends, standardization, regulatory landscape, case studies, opportunities, future roadmap, value chain, ecosystem player profiles and strategies. The report also presents forecasts for mHealth investments from 2018 till 2030. The forecasts are segmented for 5 submarkets, 29 use case categories, 5 ecosystem player categories, 6 geographical regions and 34 countries.
A key enabler in the digital transformation of the healthcare industry, mobile healthcare - or mHealth - refers to the use of mobile connectivity and associated technologies across the healthcare continuum. Healthcare providers and payers are increasingly embracing mHealth as a means to enhance care coordination, maximize outreach, boost patient engagement and improve outcomes while minimizing costs.
Keen to monetize their vast wireless network assets, mobile operators view mHealth as a substantial revenue opportunity - and many are extending beyond providing pure connectivity services, towards end-to-end mHealth offerings such as remote patient monitoring.
mHealth also offers a wealth of opportunities to the pharmaceutical industry, ranging from accelerated clinical trial innovation and medication adherence monitoring to securing the supply chain and combating counterfeit drugs. In addition, with the increasing prevalence of mobile apps that provide therapeutic impact, the digital therapeutics space is beginning to emerge, which may one-day rival mainstream pharmaceuticals in areas such as chronic disease care.
Other stakeholders that are set to benefit from mHealth include but are not limited to connected medical and wearable device OEMs, app developers, Big Data and analytics specialists, cloud computing giants, and even ride-hailing providers such as Uber and Lyft - whose platforms are increasingly being integrated with healthcare IT systems, letting healthcare providers improve their level of care by booking rides for their patients.
Driven by the thriving ecosystem, the researchers estimate that the mHealth market will account for more than $28 Billion in 2018 alone. Despite barriers relating to regulation, patient acceptance and privacy concerns, the research estimates further growth at a CAGR of approximately 30% over the next three years.
