Humane Healing: 1 Fantastic Wound Care Product


We deal with human healthcare issues everyday, but I wanted to share information on a product I have found because I know many of my followers and friends have pets.  We all know our animals play and get cuts and scrapes which can manifest into hard to heal wounds.

Humane Healing Wound Care is an incredible product for all your fury friends/family that injure themselves, fight with other further animals, or these manifest easily into larger harder to heal wounds.  I started using the salve, it does require you to apply and rub in but the healing can be detected as early as the second application.  I used this on one dog’s spay incision and the vet could have taken the stitches out around day 5 or 6.  This same dog gets cuts and scrapes including those that tear the skin back (yuck)…just a few days of ointment application and the wound is gone. The latest product is a spray that you don’t have to rub in which is fantastic for the animal with wounds sensitive to touch or the animal that is a big baby and whines before you ever touch them.  I have even used it on myself since I am so Graceful….and it works just as well on human skin with visible improvement sometimes with one application, although it is not sold nor marketed for human use.

This product works so well because it reduces the inflammation which is what cause the dogs (pets) to lick the wound, as I have been told.  If the inflammation is reduced, the wound won’t itch as much so the pet won’t pay as much attention to it.

If you have been to a vet lately, you know they hold you hostage on products that cost a fortune and many times it is because they have marked the product up 50-100%.  This helps you SAVE MONEY and avoid the vet.  This product is very affordable and the results are fantastic. A small amount goes a long way in this product which is why they sell this is smaller quantities and then hopefully it doesn’t expire before you use it all.

Check out the product if you have an animal that is prone to injuries and/or injuries turn into hard to heal wounds.

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.

Compliance Programs Required 3/25/2013


Well, we thought with Health Care Reform Act of 2010 that providers had 3 years from the signature date to have a plan implemented. With the final provisions of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, you have until 3/25/2013…less than 2 months to have a compliance plan in place.   They make reference to the 7 element compliance program currently recommended as a basis for the program structure. The final rule has language that reads as though they will withhold payment to providers that do not have compliance program in place.  Don’t worry, we can help you with a simple compliance program that is affordable.

A few other items that impact business decisions. This takes effect 3/25/2011 for all new providers and March 2012 for all existing providers.

1.  Moratorium on Medicare, Medicaid & CHIP provider numbers based on products and number of suppliers in the area.  This may not be as easy anymore.

2.  Application fees of $500 each for all providers excluding physicians and nurse practitioners and their group practices. If a provider applied for Medicare and Medicaid then only one fee will be required, but proof of Medicare application may be required.

3.  New screening and Fingerprinting requirements. Note Florida has had fingerprinting in place for over 8 years. You have to have a criminal record and there are many fraudulent providers that currently do not have a record. This applies to owners of 5% or more of the company, directors and officers.

4.  Unscheduled & unannounced visits to check up on suppliers.

5.  Re-enrollment for Medicare every 3 years and Medicaid annually and fees will apply plus inflation rate for CPI.

6.  New state licensing requirements to come from this also.

If you do not have a compliance program or haven’t taken your seriously, it is a requirement that could result in suspended payments.

With proven experience in the health care compliance, We can help you with a compliance program policies and procedures as well as teach you to manage your program or help you manage the program to ensure you pass the government inspection to ensure effect within 3 years of implementation. They can request random audits for privacy and security to ensure you are meeting requirements and now they have added billing compliance.

We can also help you with provider applications to ensure they are done right the first time.
