Innovation & Cost Savings: Beacon by LabCorp


I recently attended a meeting and LabCorp Representative spoke about various services they offer.  Toni Spain is very knowledgeable and passionate about patient care and provider the tools to the physicians to be more efficient, cost effective for the provider and provide the best care to the patient.

Ms. Spain introduced Beacon, which is at no additional cost to a general LabCorp account!  Beacon is virtual access to lab results and providers up to 2 years of lab history for the patient, no matter who ordered previous tests on file.  This will save the payers money and provider the physicians the ability to make decisions and treatment recommendations quicker for better quality patient care.  The patients many times do not remember what kind of tests other physicians orders, the results, or which physician ordered it.

This is an innovative step for LabCorp right at the time when Medicare is trying to implement Accountable Care Organizations which is all about quality care for the least expense by managing medical costs.

Contact Toni Spain for more information on this product that will change your office.

Star 10R Training: Identify Dementia Signs Early & Even Prevent Dementia


Star 10R Training Seminar for Caregivers

We know the sacrifice that Caregivers make for their loved ones. Our organization looks for resources to help providers and caregivers  care for your loved ones. We have met with AFFECTS a Texas based entity that is well known for Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship, and definitely not a traditional company by any means.

We hope you are excited!  Mr. Ray Ashton who is the Founder of this highly progressive company out of Houston is very passionate about his innovative training.  This life long mission was sparked because his grandmother passed away after years of suffering from Dementia.  Read more about Mr. Ashton.  He actually coined the term,  “Preventive Wellness” about 22 years ago.  His healthcare company, STAR Preventive Wellness (AFFECTS LLC), is training the Healthcare professional across the country with main focus on Geriatric and Early Stage Dementia, in particular.  His idea is to train the Communities’ own staff (or individuals) including RN’s, LVN’s and just about anyone who works with Seniors including Case Managers, Administrators or Social Workers. His 8-Hour CEU training is really a must for anyone who works at Memory Care, Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing communities.

They have 2 meetings planned this summer:
Hosuton Class Information
Dementia Education Houston, Texas

One is being planned for the Dallas metroplex for July, with details TBA soon.  A convenient location for those attending is being sought since this is a large metroplex, price and program length will remain the same.  Please contact Star10R  at star-10r-dallas@affects.biz or star@affects.biz  for interest in the Dallas or Houston areas.

 His main goal is to get this knowledge out there. On that note, he has made his programs’ cost close to nothing. He only charges $350 per individual or only $3000 a community to train 10 Cargivers ($300 per community caregiver). Please let me know if you can make this training and feel free to pass this along. This training is also a great marketing tool for communities to differentiate themselves, while reducing cost with no overhead or risks for that matter.  Remember, this does provide 8 CEUs for this class if you attend the entire day.
