Inmedix CEO to Co-Chair Immuno-autonomics Study Group at 2018 Annual Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology.

Andrew J. Holman, MD, Inmedix CEO & Co-founder, to highlight how linkage between the brain and immune function adversely affects autoimmune disease treatment.

NORMANDY PARK, WA, USA, October 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inmedix, the leader in next-generation heart rate variability (HRV) application as an informative diagnostic tool in autoimmune disease, today announced that CEO & Co-founder, Andrew J. Holman, MD, will co-chair the ACR study group “Immuno-autonomics: Emerging Diagnostic & Therapeutic Advances in Rheumatology”” with Paul-Peter Tak, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine, Academic Medical Center/University of Amsterdam, and former Chief Immunology Officer & Senior Vice President R&D Pipeline at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) during ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting 2018, being held October 19-24, 2018 at the McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, IL.

Drs. Holman and Tak will be joined by Katherine Thanou, MD, Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the College of Medicine at the University of Oklahoma and Assistant Member of the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF), who will review her groundbreaking research related to immuno-autonomic HRV assessment in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The ACR/ARHP Study Group will be held in Room W196b at 1-2 pm on Monday, October 22, 2018.

Immuno-autonomics is the interface between stress, modulated within the brain by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and the immune system. In autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks healthy tissues for reasons which remain unclear. Therapy is directed with various immunosuppressive strategies to reduce this inappropriate attack and potential destruction of joints, skin, kidney, brain, etc. (depending on the specific autoimmune disease).

Stress intensifies autoimmune disease, thereby reducing the effectiveness of current immunosuppressive options. This ACR/ARHP study group on immuno-autonomics is the third in the past four years. The lectures emphasize new opportunities to both accurately measure ANS stress and reduce its adverse effects to help rheumatologists restore the lives of patients with autoimmune diseases.

“Immuno-autonomics is a relatively new concept in medicine based on what our patients have been telling us for decades,” says Andrew J Holman, MD, Inmedix CEO, rheumatologist and Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington. “Stress flares autoimmune disease to make it far less responsive to treatment. Understanding how and why may significantly enhance the way rheumatologists manage and even someday prevent autoimmune diseases.”

About Inmedix, Inc. and its subsidiary, Inmedix UK, Ltd.

Seattle-based biotech/medtech Inmedix, Inc. and its subsidiary Inmedix UK, Ltd. are committed to engaging in world class research to discover innovative solutions for pressing healthcare needs related to the impact of stress, modulated within the brain by the autonomic nervous system (ANS).

Two Ways Intermountain Healthcare Is Improving Access To Healthcare In Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Healthcare gives donations to many community partners to support its mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible — and here are just two examples of recent community giving.

Intermountain made a $30,000 donation to the Kazan Clinic in rural Garfield and Wayne counties. Kazan Clinic is a member of the Behavioral Health Network, and its system of clinics serves uninsured or underpriviledged patients who need behavioral health services and referrals. Intermountain has helped support the clinic for about five years to enhance its care and staffing. Drop boxes for prescription medications have also been installed in the network for properly disposing unused or expired medication, which supports Intermountain's opioid misuse prevention work.

"Kazan Clinic has been very successful at helping more people get care much faster," says Debbie Hardy, community giving manager at Intermountain. "This partnership improves healthcare access to a wide area of Utah."

The Maliheh Free Clinic in Salt Lake City has received nearly $100,000 in Intermountain donations and grants since 2009. The clinic supports the uninsured with preventive care and patient education — specifically diabetes prevention. Intermountain gave a grant of more than $30,000 to their diabetes prevention clinic in May.

"The Maliheh Clinic has built a wonderful reputation for good care and education, particularly in the Pacific Islander population," says Hardy. "We've found Pacific Islanders feel safe attending classes and getting preventive treatment at the clinic."

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.

Life Care Planning: Post-Sanchez Decision

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna

Sanchez adds an additional burden on Defense and Plaintiff Attorneys. Our experts in the trauma related medical fields have reduced this burden in time and expense to zero.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC provides Sanchez proof testimony for its defense and plaintiff life care plans that relates to the anticipated cost of necessary future medical care by providing opinions in its life care plans from neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and Board-Certified physicians in Physical Medicine.

Historically, evidence that was presented to the jury that relates to the cost of future medical care for an injured person was provided by costing research obtained from sources that include CPT Codes (Current Procedural Terminology) and data obtained by phone calls to vendors (doctors, hospitals, equipment) of the actual cost charged for goods and services in the location where the injured person resides. California Evidence Code requires that an expert base their opinion on their ‘knowledge, skill, experience, education, and training’. In addition, California Evidence Code allow an expert to ‘state on direct examination the reasons for his opinion…., unless precluded by law from using such reasons.’

The Sanchez Decision by the California Supreme Court in June of 2016 has precluded a physician or nurse from relying on costing research provided for by this historic practice of obtaining cost data by life care planners, as this case has ruled that this testimony and reliance on these costing data essentially becomes ‘testimonial hearsay’ and is now barred by the confrontation clause of the Sixth Amendment.

Attorneys must now incur significant costs for expert opinions that independently can be relied upon a physician’s ‘skill, knowledge, experience, education, and training’ as it relates to the cost of future medical care. Non-catastrophic injuries such as disc herniations, rotator cuff tears, and knee injuries all have anticipated future care to patient’s life expectancy. Catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, burns, and amputations have future medical care in the millions. Plaintiff and defense attorneys must now get evidence of future care cost in by relying on experts with the ‘knowledge and experience’ that relates to cost.

Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, led by Dr. Greg Vigna, provides Sanchez proof testimony by using neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, prosthetic experts, trauma surgeons, plastic surgeons trained in burn care, and Board-Certified Physician in Physical Medicine Rehabilitation for its opinions that relate to all necessary future care and its cost, and life expectancy analysis. The physicians also have experience in fees related to facility fee cost.

Dr. Vigna adds, “Sanchez adds an additional burden on Defense and Plaintiff Attorneys. Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, through its experts in the trauma related medical fields, has reduced this burden in time and expense to zero.”

Dr. Greg Vigna, owner of Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, is a practicing attorney, Certified Life Care Planner, and Board-Certified Physician in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation currently is the Medical Director of HealthSouth Modesto. Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC provides this service with no additional cost for its defense and plaintiff life care plans.

How to rent TLC car for Uber and Lyft and drive at the best times to maximize income potential

How to rent TLC car for Uber and Lyft and drive at the best times to maximize income potential. ”

— Friendly, www.FriendlyTLC.com

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For those who are considering using their own vehicles or perhaps TLC cars for rent, one of the biggest questions is when the best time is to drive. After all, with a 24/7 service, there will be times during the day and night that an Uber or Lyft driver can make more money. Being prepared means making the most out of the busy times to maximize your income.

Everything Depends on Your Location

Being active during rush hour means little if you are far away from business, downtown, or industrial districts. So, to ensure that you are ready for the “surge times” when extra fare prices can be charged, you will need to be in the prime locations for Uber or Lyft services. Remember, the riders will need to be in the prime locations and you need to be nearby if you are going to make extra money. You’ll know because the marker on your app will be a darker red color.

Identifying Surge Times

It’s easy to say typical rush hour traffic, but that is somewhat misleading. In most cities, the most in-demand times are Friday and Saturday evenings and nights from about 8pm to 3am. This is because people are going about town, visiting clubs and bars, and need a ride home. If you can put up with those who have had too much to drink, you can make money during these times.

While not nearly as popular, there are other surge times that include evenings during the week to and from the airport. Plus, you may be able to pick up more passengers during rush hour. Especially those that have a vehicle breakdown or are simply late to work.

Choose Your Times

Despite your determination, it’s just not possible to be working 24/7, whether you own your own vehicle or rent a TLC car for Uber & Lyft. So, you will need to decide which type of work is best for your needs.

Rush Hour: Here, you help people get to and from work, so you will need to be ready by 6am and prepared to work to 6pm or later. The good news is that you will have a big break in your shift during the lunch hour and your weekends are free. However, this does not make as much money compared to other times.

Airport: If you do not mind getting up early, then taking people to and from the airport can be quite profitable. The bad news is that you should be ready to go by 4am. The good news is that most people travel during the week, so you will have more flexibility when it comes to your evenings and weekends.

Party Crowd: You will arguably make the most money. However, you can kiss your weekends goodbye and expect to stay up to 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.

These are the best times for those who drive Uber or Lyft, so choose wisely.

New Intermountain Layton Hospital Opens

Stephen Hawley (patient), and Glen Morell, MD

The 300,000-square-foot building has 43 beds and offers a large variety of services

Intermountain Healthcare has a long history of support from our local communities and wouldn't be here today without the support from Layton City and Intermountain leaders.”

— Hospital Administrator Judy Williamson

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The new Intermountain Layton Hospital officially opened on Monday, October 15, 2018 at 7 a.m., with full hospital and emergency healthcare services.

The 300,000-square-foot building, located at 201 W. Layton Parkway, has 43 beds and will serve a growing Davis County population.

Stephen Hawley, a Syracuse resident, was the first patient to have surgery. “It’s interesting and kind of neat in a way to be the first,” says Hawley. “I think the doctors are going to spend more time and focus on me, so that’s a good thing. The staff all seem excited for the grand opening.”

Hawley moved to Utah from California more than a decade ago for his job. “I love it here. It’s beautiful and so quiet and peaceful,” he says.

Intermountain Layton Hospital is much closer to Hawley’s home in Syracuse, Utah, a small, growing town just east of the Great Salt Lake. The next nearest Intermountain hospital, Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital, is a 30-minute drive away. “During my recovery from surgery it will be nice to have only a 5- to 10-minute drive home,” he says.

Until now, most Davis County residents have had to travel outside the county for services from Intermountain.

"We're proud to be your new neighbor," hospital administrator Judy Williamson said at a ribbon cutting ceremony. "Intermountain Healthcare has a long history of support from our local communities and wouldn't be here today without the support from Layton City and Intermountain leaders.”

Intermountain Layton Hospital is Intermountain's 23rd hospital and the first hospital to be opened in almost a decade. Intermountain Park City Hospital and Intermountain Riverton Hospital were the last hospitals to open, and both started serving patients in 2009. A 24th hospital, Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospital, is currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2020.

Services to be provided at Intermountain Layton Hospital and the services include:

• Major services include emergency services, women and newborn, special care nursery, surgical services, and infusion therapy.
• The labor and delivery unit includes dedicated rooms for low-intervention birthing — complete with water laboring tubs — for mothers looking for a "home birth" experience in the safety of a hospital.
• Outpatient Clinics have been open since September 2017 and include: Primary Children's Outpatient Services, Layton Parkway Clinic, Northern Utah Pediatrics, a retail pharmacy, and additional physician offices.
• The Layton Clinic InstaCare located at Antelope Dr. will be moving to the Layton Parkway Clinic on the hospital campus later this year.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.
