Florida emerges as leader in pharmacogenetics research

Dr. McLeod

Dr. Johnson

Dr. Cavallari

Florida has emerged as a national leader in genetics research specialty

The precision medicine talent in Tampa, Gainesville, and across Florida is making a big difference in people’s lives. This recognition is exciting for Florida.”

— Dr. Howard McLeod

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — TAMPA – The study of pharmacogenetics is not a new one in the world of medical research.

Also referred to as Precision Medicine, pharmacogenetics is a branch of genetics that addresses how our genetic code influences how we respond to drug therapies.

As early as 1957, a published paper noted that adverse reactions to an anti-malarial drug and a muscle relaxant were inherited and linked to deficiencies in the activity of specific liver enzymes. The article established the link between genetics and the enzymes that break down medications.

Florida leading the nation

Which brings us to Florida, home to three of the top five U.S. experts in the field.

Dr. Howard McLeod, medical director of Tampa’s Geriatric Oncology Consortium and a clinical researcher, is ranked No. 1 and Dr. Julie Johnson and Dr. Larisa Cavallari of the University of Florida are ranked No. 4 and No. 5 in the country, according to Expertscape, which ranks experts based on the quality and quantity of their publications.

“The precision medicine talent in Tampa, Gainesville, and across Florida is making a big difference in people’s lives. This recognition is exciting for Florida,” said McLeod, who is also affiliated with USF Taneja College of Pharmacy.

McLeod is also ranked No. 2 in the world in pharmacogenetics behind Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed of the University of Liverpool in England.

Johnson is the dean of the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. Her research focuses on cardiovascular pharmacogenetics and genomic medicine implementation. She is an internationally recognized expert in the field. Johnson has served on the Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee of the FDA, the XDN study section of the NIH.

Cavallari is the director of the University of Florida Center for Pharmacogenomics and Precision Medicine. She also serves as director of the UF Health Precision Medicine Program. Her research involves the discovery and clinical translation of genetic variants related to drug response and has been funded by the NIH, FDA, and the American Heart Association.

Cavallari said the concentration of experts in the field in Florida is helping the state take a lead role in this area of medical research.

“There is a large collection of nationally and internationally recognized experts in pharmacogenetics at universities and health centers across Florida, facilitating multi-site collaborations to advance evidence in the field and implementation of pharmacogenetics in clinical practice,” said Cavallari. “This work not only helps us understand the reason that people respond differently to medications but also, we are able to translate that into improved care of the patient.”

Johnson said UF’s focus on this area of study is reflected in the rankings.

“The University of Florida has intentionally built strength in this area so perhaps it is not surprising that two people from UF are so high on this list,” she said.

Boosted by Human Genome Project

Modern pharmacogenetics research was advanced a hundredfold by the Human Genome Project, which produced a working draft of the human genome in 2000.

“Today, we are learning the language in which God created life,” President Bill Clinton said at the time, paraphrasing Galileo, who insisted that the natural philosophy, even the universe itself, was written in the language of mathematics. “We have caught the first glimpse of our own instruction book. It will revolutionize the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of most, if not all, human diseases,” he added.

McLeod said the Human Genome Project has revolutionized modern medicine, allowing everything from the diagnosis of babies in the womb to identifying which medicines will work for individual patients.

Direct-to-consumer

Last month, the FDA gave clearance to 23andMe, a biotechnology company, allowing its direct-to-consumer personal pharmacogenetics report to guide the use of two treatments without the need for confirmatory testing.

"This expanded indication for our pharmacogenetics report recognizes the accuracy of our results and enables doctors to use them in prescribing therapies," said Anne Wojcicki, CEO of 23andMe. "This is a great milestone in making personalized medicine a reality."

FDA granted 23andMe 510(k) clearance for a pharmacogenetics (PGt) report for interpretive drug information for two medications – clopidogrel, prescribed for certain heart conditions, and citalopram, prescribed for depression. The 510(k) clearance modifies the labeling of the previously authorized 23andMe CYP2C19 Drug Metabolism Report, removing the need for confirmatory testing and allowing the company to provide interpretive drug information based on genetic factors for these specific medications, according to the company.

“It is about empowering people to help guide their own care” added McLeod. “We have entered the age of real-time, patient-controlled medication management,” he said.

Digital Payment Market Insights 2015-2026

Payments2.0 has seen a key niche and intends to support this explosive growth with it's comprehensive converged payments solutions platform to various sectors.

We’re witnessing the creative destruction of financial services, rearranging it around the consumer. Whoever can do this in the most exciting way using digital technologies will win”

— Eli Hazan, Business Development Director, Israel at Payments2.0

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The government in Israel has launched various initiates to promote the adoption of electronic payments in the country. The introduction of a cap on cash transactions and a reduction in interchange fees are some of the key regulatory measures the Bank of Israel (the country’s central bank) undertook to drive electronic payments. The robust growth in e-commerce, adoption of EMV technology, new entrants in the merchant acquiring space and the emergence of digital-only banks are other important trends that were witnessed in recent times and the Covid-19 pandemic only put the cherry on the cake for the Digital Payments Industry making it almost as certain to explode in the new normal.

The rise in digital wallet technologies has taken place over the past five years at a time when business in general has been moving online, with e-commerce now accounting for 8% of UK GDP, according to the E-Commerce Foundation13. And the COVID-19 crisis has only increased this trend – research from Lightico14 shows that 63% of Americans are now more willing to move to fully digital banking, following COVID.

The omen is clear "Go Digital or Be Left Out"

FROM MOBILE WALLET TO DIGITAL BANK

There is a clear development path from the use of mobile wallets to the provision of fully digital banking services. This can be characterized into four developmental stages as follows:

1. Mobile wallet applications replace cash payments, and become the most frequently installed and opened financial app. In this phase, banks discover they are able to reach users more effectively via their mobile wallet than via other channels.

2. Bank transfers, and fee and bill payments become widespread as mobile wallets are bound to bank cards or to digital bank cards issued as mobile wallets.

3. As the penetration rate of mobile payments in overall consumption scenario increases, the consumer financial services using mobile wallets at their core gradually develops. Banks provide consumers with consumer installment, bill installment, microcredit and loyalty programs through mobile wallets.

4. Insurance and investment services also become available through mobile wallets as consumer familiarity and confidence with using the wallet as the core of their banking experience increases. At this point, the wallet becomes the virtual “bank branch”, available 24/7/365 for the provision of a wide range of digital services.

"We’re witnessing the creative destruction of financial services, rearranging it around the consumer. Whoever can do this in the most exciting way using digital technologies will win". quipped Eli Hazan – Business Development Director, Israel at Payments 2.0 “Banking has to work when and where you need it. The best advice and the best service happens in real time, is based on customer behaviour, using the principles of Big Data, mobility and gamification.” he further added.

To stay relevant, banks and payment providers need to:
* Take a strategic, holistic perspective on payments and consider payment‑proximate activities
* Identify markets, business areas and services where payments are a crucial aspect
* Evaluate and prioritize viable options as to where and how to play
* Define the required business enablers
* Allocate resources and investments to develop solutions that add value
* Keep consistent and well-designed customer experience as a main guideline
* Explore new partnership models, including strategic cross-industry alliances

We are addressing the opportunities in this emerging market building an alternate banking ecosystem helping the unbanked with a better choice that is simple, helping them save and transfer all with the convenience at the click of a button.

We will provide the market with retail financial products to merchants, including universal payment platform, multi-currency digital wallets for travelers, Stored Value card solutions on a secure digital banking platform which is the need of the hour during this digital revolution demanding contactless payment systems.

Born out of a brain storming idea to change the way payments are made today, Payments2.0 is started by ex-bankers with experience in Banking, Payments, Cards, Digital wallets and Information security domains.

Our goal is to create a secure, trusted and easy to use global payment solutions.

Payments2.0 is here with Comprehensive Converged Payment Solutions – Anytime, Anywhere, Anyway, Any currency!

Phone off and missing? This app allows you to track it… EVEN if it is off

Your personal bodyguard

Hammer Security

Creator of Hammer Security

A new app that will find stolen smartphones and protect your children from danger
– Hammer Security your personal bodyguard

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The best part of the Hammer Security App is that it alerts parents when children are in danger but what really impressed the Mexican media was its ability to retrieve stolen or lost phones even if criminals turn it off.

“When these Mexican stories appeared only a few short months after the app was launched, downloads went viral,” said Hammer Security App Developer Bernardo Ruz. “If a thief shuts down a stolen phone, the app automatically sends a live location, pictures with audio to emergency contacts.”

But catching phone thieves red handed is just a small feature of the app’s true ability. Its original purpose is to protect children if they become victims of crime or involved in car accidents. This gives parents an extra peace of mind while children or teenagers are away from home.

Unlike tracking apps, Hammer Security only alerts parents of emergencies confronting children. It doesn’t notify parents all the time of their children’s whereabouts. Teenagers are more likely to keep it on their phones because they don’t see it as intrusive but may delete tracking apps.

Also, a tracking app is really good at only one thing but when emergencies happen and the phone is powered off, it doesn’t send out alerts. The Hammer Security App is more realistic and focuses on alerting parents only when a crime or accident actually occurs.

Stolen phones are a big problem in the U.S.

“In 2013, about 3.1 million smartphones were stolen. That’s almost double from the year before. Victims have experienced loss of productivity, identity theft and fraudulent charges. Most phones are stolen when people are out at public places like restaurants, bars or even at work”, said Ruz.

Most teenagers have their phones stolen at parties. The first actions thieves do is turn off the phone, thinking it can’t be tracked. However, Hammer Security fools them into thinking it’s shut down but it’s really not. Instead the phone starts tracking, taking pictures and records audio.

When the thief thinks they’re turning the phone back on and tries to unlock the phone multiple times, the app’s algorithm will detect this and take an intruder selfie.

Hammer Security also has a collision detector and automatically notifies emergency contacts, even if the child is unconscious during a car accident. If they’re in a car accident, the app’s algorithm will detect the crash as high decibels and a sudden stop with changes in acceleration through sensors on the phone.

If children are being bullied, robbed or in any other emergency where someone tries to harm them, they can press a readily accessible panic button. It will immediately send live location, pictures with audio to emergency contacts.

If children become victims of crime such as kidnapping, the app also alerts parents. The first action kidnappers do is shut down their victim’s phone. They don’t throw the phone away since it contains important information they can use to negotiate a ransom with the family.

When this happens, the app fools them into thinking the phone is off when it’s really not so it immediately starts alerting parents and emergency contacts with pictures, audio and live location.

The Hammer Security app also lets you control it remotely. Log on to the Hammer Security website 24/7 to trigger alarms, display messages, take pictures, record videos or audios.

“The app is affordable and should be part of every parent’s arsenal at $1.99 per month or $14.99 per year and there’s a free version with ads, which can be downloaded at Google Play.”

Insurance Veteran Ross Viner and We Insure Inc. Announce Partnership to Open First We Insure Franchise in Kansas

Ross Viner Headshot

In order to best serve my customers, I wanted to be in a position to provide them with the value that I believe only an independent service model can offer.”

— Ross Viner, Agency Owner

JACKSONVILLE, FL, USA, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of its first agency in Kansas. Located in the state’s largest city, We Insure Ross Viner and Associates serves customers in the greater Wichita area.

We Insure’s newest agency is owned and operated by Ross Viner, an insurance agency owner of 33 years. A lifelong resident of Wichita and a captive agency owner in the same area, Viner chose to revitalize his business by partnering with We Insure to invest in a franchise operation.

“The one-carrier model no longer works in today’s economy,” says Viner. “Insurance is not a one-size-fits-all approach and in order to best serve my customers, I wanted to be in a position to provide them with the value that I believe only an independent service model can offer.”

Viner adds: “When insurance rates increase, you need to be able to shop other carriers to maintain the trust you’ve built with clients. Your loyalty to your customer and not the insurance company is what helps maintain the customer relationship.”

“We’re excited that Ross is the owner of our founding franchise in Kansas,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “Ross and many other agency owners come to We Insure for our superior technology and customer service support. In his former agency, Ross had a small team of customer service representatives managing his portfolio. Now, he can count on the We Insure home office for that manpower and focus even more attention on sales.”

We Insure is experiencing high demand from real estate entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models.

Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 150 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of just 80 businesses to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisee satisfaction and performance rankings.

About We Insure
We Insure is a national insurance company that’s disrupting the industry with an innovative business model focused on customer experience and exceptional agent support. The franchise offers unprecedented access to carriers and complete operational, IT, service and marketing support to its franchisees in the U.S. We Insure is expanding rapidly with more than 100 retail locations and over $185 million in annual sales.

In Summary
As you’ll see from our list, these companies are the cream of the crop, and because of this, they will offer the most opportunities for new adjusters. One note, Pacesetter Claims Service is listed first because of how extensive their adjuster training opportunities, software, and general reach pull the adjusters forward at an unmatchable pace.

Even still, nothing can replace attending industry events and conferences as it is another great way to build your connections, and it helps some of these firms put a face to your name.

Independent claims business is booming

According to the most recent industry-wide survey, there were more than 125,000 independent adjusters in the U.S by mid 2016, and careers for individual claim adjusters are increasing by approximately 2.52% on average each year.

However, as a combined result of there being lower numbers of staff-adjusters and more companies who are self-insuring for reduced levels of risk; career opportunities for independent claims adjusters are on the rise.

Medicare Annual Enrollment opens between October 15th and December 7th. AARDY, the nation's fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace is on hand to help.

AARDY Medicare Marketplace – Old-fashioned customer service, matched with cutting-edge technology is certainly the way to go this Medicare Enrollment Period”

— Jonathan Breeze

MIAMI, FL, USA, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year, between October 15 and December 7, Medicare provides an opportunity to sign up or change plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). Other names are Medicare Fall Open Enrollment and the Annual Election Period.

This can be a confusing period as individual Health Insurers promote their plans.
AARDY, the nation's fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace is on hand to help.

AARDY CEO Jonathan Breeze commented:
“During Annual Enrollment, customer can change their health insurance to something that provides more coverage or costs less. Their existing plan might have made some changes since they got it. It's worthwhile to explore plans each year. Customers might find one with more benefits like dental, vision, hearing services, and prescription drug coverage.

Also, they may discover lower cost policies if they shop around.

However, if a customer likes their current plan, they do not need to do anything during AEP. It automatically renews if they take no action.

The AARDY Medicare system provides clarity as to plan coverages so that informed choice can be made.

However, far more importantly, our Medicare Agents are able to help. We always encourage our customers to call.
Old-fashioned customer service, matched with cutting-edge technology is certainly the way to go this Medicare Enrollment Period.”

AARDY donates 10% of annual profits each and every year to support AARDY Kids of Heroes™ charity partners. Through 2020, AARDY is supporting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a truly inspirational charity.

Health Care Transformation Task Force Releases APM Roles and Responsibilities Planning Resource

HCTTF APM Roles and Responsibilites Matrix

HCTTF APM Roles and Responsibilites Matrix

New Tool Helps Organizations Define Roles and Coordinate Activities Key to Delivering High Quality Care

It has been extremely useful to have the core APM workstreams and activities that payers and providers should account for laid out in a simple and customizable format.”

— David Johnson, Medical Director, Healthcare Strategy & Payment, BCBS NC

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF or Task Force), a group of leading health care payers, providers, purchasers and patient advocacy organizations, today released a customizable resource designed to clearly identify the roles health care partners play in implementing alternative payment models (APMs). The tool – which is available for free download – is intended to help users recognize gaps or overlaps in responsibilities, improve efficiencies and communication, and promote successful APM operations.

“Effective collaboration is an ongoing challenge as health care providers and payers partner to deploy alternative payment models and delivery system reforms, sometimes unintentionally duplicating efforts,” said Blair Childs, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at Premier. “This resource greatly simplifies this task by offering a common framework that all sides can use to identify key activities and determine who should be taking the lead based on demonstrated capabilities.”

The roles and responsibilities matrix was designed for health care payers, providers, and purchasers working under an existing APM contract or planning a new APM partnership. The goal of the matrix is to clearly identify the relationships between the parties implementing an APM, recognize gaps or overlaps in responsibilities, improve efficiencies and communication, and promote successful operations.

“Coordinating activities across payers, providers, and purchasers has been a perennial challenge for APM implementation. This resource should better focus these conversations and lead to more successful advanced payer/provider partnerships,” said Jeff Micklos, Executive Director of the Task Force. “We are excited to be able to share these lessons learned from our members’ deep commitment to and experience in value-based payment design and implementation.”

The resource is modeled after a commonly used project planning and responsibility assignment tool called a “RACI” matrix – standing for responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed – and is pre-populated with common workstreams and activities related to operating APMs. The tool can be customized to reflect a user’s specific APM or integrated into existing organizational project management plans.

“It has been extremely useful to have the core APM workstreams and activities that payers and providers should account for laid out in a simple and customizable format,” said David Johnson, Medical Director of Healthcare Strategy and Payment Transformation at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. “We have already taken advantage of this resource to make updates to our model planning and design process.”

Members of the Health Care Transformation Task Force believe it is a national priority for the health care industry to collaborate in the transition to value. The Task Force regularly develops best practices and resources for implementing value-based payment models and actionable policy recommendations to accelerate value transformation.
