Eric Lefkofsky’s Effort to Improve Cancer Care and Treatment

Eric Lefkofsky’s Tempus has been in the forefront in improving healthcare through technological innovations. Tempus, which focuses on the big data, aspires to be the largest store of cancer care information in the world. In the article published in the Hitechcronicle by James Anderson describes one of Tempus latest initiative. Tempus collaborated with the Precision Health IA that provides Tempus with an access to its CancerLinQ. The CancerLinQ database currently holds medical results from over 600,000 patients. The American Society of Clinical Oncology is the organization that developed the CancerLinQ to help improve the efforts towards Cancer treatment. According to the article, Tempus hopes that by obtaining the access to CnacerLinQ, they would be able to determine patterns that would lead to faster improvements among the cancer patients.

Eric Lefkofsky believes that the partnerships would work and calls for long-term partnerships. Tempus has an experience gained enough experience from its partnership with almost 50 other research hospitals in improving cancer treatment. Their experience helped them bag the coveted partnership with the CancerLinQ. It is understood that many other competitors were after the partnership deal with the CancerLinQ. Tempus would improve its capacity to provide relevant information regarding cancer care and treatment to help families and healthcare providers help their patients. The two organizations are also complementary in nature, which increases their chance to succeed.

Rocketship Education Gvies Hopes to Displaced Disaster Victims

Rocketship Education is an amazing entity as an advocate for low-income and underprivileged individuals. It has shown time and time again that its care for community members goes above and beyond the call of duty. The organization believes that stability is the most important element that students need to survive in class. That’s why it was important for the company to donate funds as well as support to victims of the recent hurricane disasters. Many people lost their homes, belongings and dignity when the storms suddenly hit them. Rocketship Education did its best to get these citizens what they needed so that they could be effective parents and teachers through it all.

The company joined forces with Catholic Charities, which has always been a strong financial entity and overall helpful organization. Together, the two entities contributed more than $62,000 that it used for disaster relief in distressed communities. The funds went toward a variety of helpful products and services. These products and services kept the families healthy. They all had food to eat, clothes to wear and a place to live because the funds paid for their security deposits to purchase new living quarters and pay the rent. A Mexican family was one of the primary families that the organization helped to get back on its feet. The family was very grateful that Rocketship Education chose them as one of the 30 families in the community that they helped to rebuild. The organization continues to assist people who have been displaced or inconvenienced because of recent disasters.

Rocketship Education is an organization that works hard for low-income and underprivileged families. The organization provides a number of benefits to such families.

The Influence of Securus Technologies in the Innovation of Prison Technology

Prison technology and incarceration was an industry that was known for reluctant to grab the technology innovation and highest customer service standards a few decades ago. Today, the industry is one of the most prominent one in tech innovation and cutting-edge solutions that can make every customer smile. I must say that for all these changes, we owe to the efforts of Securus Technologies, the leader in prison technology advancement. It was founded in 1986 and currently based in Dallas. It has regional offices Atlanta, Allen, and Carrollton, and it serves over 2,600 correctional centers in Canada and the United States.

 

Interestingly, Securus provides its high-value services to 45 states in the United States, including District of Columbia. Including Mexico, the firm has over 1,000,000 inmates across its network. I can say that all its services from friends and family to monitoring and investigation services, Securus provides efficient and comprehensive solutions that can create a long-lasting impression in each of its customer’s mind. In the last three years, it spent over $600 million for acquisition, technology, patent, and more to make revolutionary changes in the industry. Interestingly, the firm is the biggest patent holder in the prison technology industry, and governmental agencies always seek the assistance of Securus considering its superior, world-class delivery of service.

 

The prison technology firm receives regular appreciation from facility customers as its technology helped them to solve and prevent many crimes. Interestingly, Securus classified some of those mails without disclosing the identity of the jail officials or facility centers. I expected a large vocal support for its call monitoring services, and many facility centers appreciated the way the technology helped them to solve many crimes and unreported incidents. Some of them praised the efforts of Securus in improving the prison security using innovative solutions and cutting-edge technology.

In 2015 alone, 26% of the total donations made by the Michigan couple went to education. 3% percent of the same we to foundations supporting education.

How one New Jersey dentist transformed the practice of sleep medicine

Avi Weisfogel graduated from the New York School of Dentistry in 1999. Shortly thereafter, he founded his first dental practice, Old Bridge Dental. He began building a reputation as one of Central New Jersey’s go-to dentists, doubling his business in just a few, short years. But even as he enjoyed enormous success with his practice, he was always pushing himself to innovate and bring additional value to his patients.

After a period of intense research, it came to Dr. Weisfogel’s attention that there was a terrible condition ailing the nation. This disease was called sleep apnea. Dr. Weisfogel learned that sleep apnea was an insidious killer, being strongly associated with such deadly conditions and heart attack, stroke, diabetes and even automobile and workplace accidents. Furthermore, he realized that dentists were in a potentially key position for the early recognition, diagnosis and treatment of this terrible killer in its earliest stages, before it has a chance to run its destructive course. Dr. Weisfogel developed a plan.

In 2010, he founded Dental Sleep Masters, a program of seminars and courses designed to inform dentists on the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea in high-risk patient groups. The program teaches dentists the many signs, symptoms and risk factors associated with the disease, many of which occur in the mouth and throat areas. As it turns out, most cases of sleep apnea are of the obstructive variety. This means that those cases all have etiologies in the head, neck and mouth area. Most of these develop from structural abnormalities of the mouth, tonsils and larynx. But some are also due to excess adipose tissues of the neck and even tumor growth.

Dental Sleep Masters has gone on to become the premier authority in current treatment modalities for sleep apnea within the context of dentistry. Many dentists who have undergone the program have become so financially successful with their sleep dentistry practices that they have completely abandoned traditional dentistry altogether. Dr. Weisfogel’s programs have been responsible for tens of millions of dollars in sales of oral appliances that delay or stop the progression of this deadly condition.
