New York Attorney General’s Motion To Hold Nexus Services In Contempt Of Court Was Denied This Morning. Nexus Vows To Protect Immigrants And Stand Firm On Company Principle Of Protecting Client Privacy.

New York, NY., January 10, 2018 – Judge Andrew Borrok in the Supreme Court of New York ruled against the New York Attorney General today on the AG’s motion for civil and criminal contempt against Nexus Services, Inc. The AG had requested fines and the imprisonment of Nexus CEO Mike Donovan. The Judge rejected the contempt motion and asked Libre to continue making weekly productions of their documents, redacted pursuant to the order of the New York appellate division. Libre by Nexus will make weekly productions of redacted material that will insure client confidential information will be protected from disclosure to the Trump deportation machine.

Libre by Nexus fought back against the New York AG because some of the information the Attorney General seeks is personal, confidential information of Nexus program participants that have nothing to do with a consumer inquiry and which could place their lives or cases in jeopardy. Mike Donovan, Nexus’s CEO, said today after the ruling “We are thankful that Judge Borrok denied the AG’s motion for contempt. We are hopeful that we can rise above the politics of immigration and actually work together to protect the immigrant community. We are willing partners in such an endeavor, and welcome any fair inquiry that protects our clients’ personal data. We are not, and will never be, willing to share confidential client data without protections that it will be secured. We have promised our clients that we would protect their confidential information, and that is a promise I intend to keep. This is even more important after President Trump’s ‘nine minutes of hate’ speech from his nationally televised address this week. For as long as the White House is occupied by an anti-immigrant demagogue Nexus will continue to fight to insure that our clients are protected from the Trump Deportation machine.”

Libre by Nexus will continue to produce redacted information in an effort to fully comply with any regulatory inquiry, but will absolutely fight against overly-broad requests that would put Nexus clients at risk.

Nexus Services, Inc. is a leading provider of immigrant bail securitization and electronic monitoring. The organization is committed to protecting the immigrant community in the United States, and does so through bail securitization and funding pro bono legal defense for immigrants in removal proceedings. The company has spent tens of millions of dollars on immigrant defense over the past three years. Nexus has also funded dozens of lawsuits against the Trump administration and anti-immigrant government agencies and stands resolved to defeat the Trump administration’s efforts to brutalize, dehumanize, and destroy the central American immigrant community in the United States. http://www.nexushelps.com

SmartPractice Teams with PCIHIPAA to Help Clients Stay Current with Ongoing HIPAA Compliance Regulations

Partnership Addresses A Key Challenge for Many Healthcare Providers To Help Safeguard Patient Protected Health Information (PHI)

Our partnership with PCIHIPAA adds another quality layer of training and protection which reinforces our commitment to customer success”

— Kristin Uhles, VP of Marketing, SmartPractice

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, January 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — SmartPractice, a provider of quality support, tools and products to optimize dental quality of care, patient production and revenue, is pleased to announce its new partnership with PCIHIPAA, a leading Payments Card Industry (PCI) and HIPAA compliance provider. The partnership is focused on protecting SmartPractice clients from the onslaught of HIPAA violations which include ransomware attacks and data breaches impacting medical and dental practices throughout the United States.

According to the site HHS.gov (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), over 5,700,000 patient records were breached in the last 3 months of 2018. Protected Health Information (PHI) continues to be under attack as hackers strive to monetize the stolen data on the dark web. The types of HIPAA violations most often identified are:

1. Impermissible uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI)
2. Lack of technology safeguards of PHI
3. Lack of adequate contingency planning in case of a data breach or ransomware attack
4. Lack of administrative safeguards of PHI
5. Lack of a mandatory HIPAA risk assessment
6. Lack of executed Business Associate Agreements
7. Lack of employee training and updated policies and procedures

“We vetted many HIPAA compliance providers and believe PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program is the right solution for our clients. Our partnership with PCIHIPAA adds another quality layer of training and protection which reinforces our commitment to customer success.” said Kristin Uhles, VP of Marketing, SmartPractice. “We are confident that our clients will find the program easy to implement and provide peace of mind knowing that they are taking the appropriate safeguards to protect their patient’s private information.”

PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program provides a number of key features that will allow busy and growing dental practices to easily conform to strict HIPAA regulations. The OfficeSafe Compliance Program includes:

• HIPAA Policies and Procedures – a guided navigation to easily create, update, and record your HIPAA Policies and Procedures
• HIPAA Checklist – an easy checklist to follow the compliance status of your office
• Online HIPAA Employee Training – comprehensive training options for staff to provide insight into latest HIPAA Regulations
• HIPAA Compliance Webinars – education webinars to learn more about HIPAA Regulations
• $500,000 PCI and HIPAA Data Breach, Non-Compliance, Privacy, Network Security and Ransom Insurance Coverage
• OfficeSafe ID: Identity Restoration for doctors and their families
• Annual PCI Compliance and Certification (Annual SAQ / Quarterly IP Scans)
• 24/7 HIPAA Support and Incident Response Management

In addition to becoming compliant, your practice is protected by a $500,000 Cyber Insurance Policy in case of a ransomware attack, patient data breach or HIPAA violation. You and your families’ identity also receive Identity Restoration Protection in the event your personal data is breached.

“We are excited to be working with SmartPractice. They are leaders in the industry and our partnership with help remove the uncertainties around PCI and HIPAA compliance for their customers.” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA. “We find that many practices don’t have the resources to navigate HIPAA law, and are unaware of common vulnerabilities. Adding the OfficeSafe Compliance Program to SmartPractice’ extensive suite of services will provide an easy-to-follow roadmap for all of their dental practices. We invite every member to conduct a complimentary Self-Assessment to quickly identity key vulnerabilities in their practice.”

Advanced Vapor Technologies Announces TANCS “Mold Buster” Technology

Mold in Carpet

Moldy Carpet

Mold Study Chart

Mold Study Chart

Now, using TANCS SSV, wet carpet with mold can be restored even after a month goes by using a chemical-free process.

TANCS SSV is very efficient in eradicating mold in carpet after 24 hours, seven days, and 30 days of mold incubation time using only hot, low moisture steam vapor, and zero chemicals”

— Rick Hoverson, AVT

EVERETT, WA, US, January 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Advanced Vapor Technologies−the technology leader in Saturated Steam Vapor (SSV) cleaning and disinfection systems−has announced its TANCS “Mold Buster” Technology to remediate mold in carpet.

This is especially timely in U.S. southern states projected to have higher-than-normal wet-weather events this winter.

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA’s) Climate Prediction Center, predicts "wetter-than-average conditions across the southern tier of the U.S., and up into the Mid-Atlantic" from December 2018 through February 2019.

Wet weather and flooding leads to mold growth, and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) says mold is especially troublesome when it occurs in carpet:

"In many cases, if mold has grown on carpet, cleaning will not be possible … [and] if there is a large area of growth, the carpet will probably need to be replaced."

“Thankfully, there’s a solution to avoid carpet replacement in many cases,” noted Rick Hoverson, principal of Advanced Vapor Technologies, LLC. “A study of our TANCS SSV technology conducted by the University of Saint Louis, School of Public Health, found our system is very efficient in eradicating mold in carpet after 24 hours, seven days, and 30 days of mold incubation time.”

The study disproved the popular notions that mold cannot be significantly reduced in carpet after it has been wet 24-hours or more, and that all cleaning methods are equally effective.

Study Details

Sixty samples of wet carpet and foam padding were imbedded with Cladosporium sphaerospermum (spp) mold, then incubated for 1 day, 7 days, and 30 days. Mold colony forming units (CFU) increased from “1,300 per square feet in 24 hours to a maximum of approximately 9,200 colony forming units per square feet after 7 days with a slight decline in growth after 30 days incubation.”

Cleaning was compared using three methods: High-flow/hot water extraction; hot water and detergent; and TANCS low-moisture steam vapor.

The study concluded: “[Saturated TANCS] Steam was significantly better than the other two methods with 92-99.8% efficiency in reduction of Cladosporium sphaerospermum (spp)” over incubation times of 1,7, and 30 days.

“The other two methods had declining efficiencies of fungal removal over time, from a maximum of 82% and 81% at 24 hours down to 60% and 43% at 30 days for hot water/detergent and high-flow/hot water extraction, respectively,” according to researchers.

CyberGuard360 Releases CyberGlass SIEM 2.0; Expanding Market Reach in Cybersecurity Detection and Backup and Recovery

Al Alper, CyberGuard 360 CEO

Partnership with Unitrends brings enterprise-class back and disaster recovery capabilities to the CyberGuard 360 platform

This is an amazing step forward for all CyberGuard360 partners serious about disaster recovery and the very latest in cyber protection.”

— Al Alper, CEO, CyberGuard 360

WILTON, CT, USA, January 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — CyberGuard360, a firm which develops a solution set of products to detect and mitigate threats from cyber attacks, unveiled CyberGlass SIEM 2.0 late last year. The platform now integrates Unitrends’ backup statistics and statuses to deliver critical insights into systems health and disaster recovery capabilities. The partnership with Unitrends, a Kaseya company, brings disaster recovery and business continuity services to the CyberGuard360 platform, while also broadening Unitrends’ industry-leading, enterprise-class backup and disaster recovery solutions to the MSP and MSSP markets.

CyberGlass SIEM 2.0 is analytics-driven and provides real-time monitoring of threats across the entire technological domain –an organized means of reporting incidents, the ability to analyze large quantities of data to determine where issues/incidents are occurring and the specific tools to confront and deal with threats immediately from within the same platform.

“This is an amazing step forward for all CyberGuard360 partners serious about disaster recovery and the very latest in cyber protection,” said Al Alper, CEO of CyberGuard360. “Fortune 100 companies rely on Unitrends evern,” said Al Alper, CEO of CyberGuard360. “Fortune 100 companies rely on Unitrends every day to protect their data. This means that if CyberGlass identifies a threat which needs to be recovered from, or a backup that needs to be investigated, access to the Unitrends appliance and backups are just a click away. We have developed a superior product in CyberGlass and are pleased to expand its scope and reach even further with our work with Unitrends.”

The integration with Unitrends comes on the heels of an extensive research and development phase for CyberGlass, released to the market last year. CyberGlass is a first-to-market SIEM 2.0 solution in the ongoing world of cyber threats. The platform covers cloud, perimeter, network, endpoints, and devices that interact and participate on the network. CyberGlass incorporates all traditional SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) components, adds protection components such as next-generation endpoint security, web and DNS security, Dark Web monitoring and much more, then overlays them with CyberGlassAL, an actionable interface that enables engineers to perform prescriptive and proactive remediation without ever having to leave CyberGlass. This design protects businesses from the growing and dangerous threat of cyber attacks on their infrastructure by including the entire security stack in its implementation. CyberGlass SIEM 2.0 incorporates all of the traditional SIEM tools with real-time information monitoring and management and further builds with the inclusion of top-level functionality that includes protection and remediation capabilities. Additionally, the management component incorporates powerful scripting and automation which have been previously used only by MSPs and enterprise IT departments using third party tools. “Where traditional SIEM ‘sees something, says something,’ CyberGlass’ SIEM 2.0 actionable interface ‘sees something, does something’,” said Alper.

Insurance and Credit Cards – Streamlining Your Cash Flow in the New Year

“Buddy Up with The Best” Est. 1994 ®

Learn how clinics can streamline their cash flow in the New Year and all year long.

Never take your eyes off the cash flow because it’s the lifeblood of business.”

— —Sir Richard Branson, business magnate, investor, author and philanthropist

MINNETONKA, MN, UNITED STATES, January 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Insurance and Credit Cards – Streamlining Your Cash Flow in the New Year

Welcome to Billing Buddies YouTube and Podcast series.
In this episode, we will be discussing streamlining your cash flow in the New Year by obtaining current insurance cards and credit card authorizations.
With the New Year upon us, it is especially important to get copies of your patients’ active insurance cards and to get credit card authorizations to secure their accounts with your clinic. These two steps will significantly increase your cash flow. In fact, these two simple tasks will, if followed, increase your cash flow all year long.
Let’s start with the understanding that in the fourth quarter of each year, Medicare and private insurance companies have Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment is when patients can switch coverage for the first of the coming year. Because so many of your patients may have changed insurance coverage the first of the year, it’s imperative to get new copies of insurance cards and to update your billers and billing software with the new policy numbers. Also, if you get denials from insurance companies that coverage is terminated, it is wise to immediately call or send a statement to the patient for the balance, so they will either pay or respond with their current insurance information.
In addition, at the first of the year, deductibles go back into effect. Many clinics are starting to secure the patient accounts with a credit cards on file. Securing a patient account with a credit card on file is a straight forward process. You need to have a form for the patient to complete and sign that gives their credit card information and permission for you to automatically charge their credit card for any balances due. If you need a sample form to secure credit cards on file, please email bonnie@billingbuddies.com and put in the subject line “Credit Card Authorization”. My email again is bonnie@billingbuddies.com spelled out b-o-n-n-i-e-@-b-i-l-l-i-n-g-b-u-d-d-i-e-s.com.
Finally, remember that all year long it is important to verify a patient’s active coverage by getting copies of their current insurance cards and it’s important to secure their account with your clinic by having a credit card authorization on file.
Billing Buddies is a medical billing and consulting service established in 1994. We offer services to a variety of specialties across the United States. For more information, please call or text 612.432.2366. Thank you for listening to Billing Buddies YouTube and Podcast Series and remember to “Buddy Up with the Best.” Have a great day.
