Sao Paulo, Brazil and London, UK (PRWEB UK) 6 March 2014
ISPM, a leading vendor of flexible service assurance and management software for telecommunications and IT infrastructure announced that it will be showing how barriers to the adoption of eHealth services can be easily overcome through the realisation of simple but powerful business solutions supported by clear business models.
Solution expert Washington Tavares will demonstrate how eHealth solutions can be used to capture and display patient data in real-time and from a willing audience as an example of the kind of business models and practices that can be realised through eHealth initiatives.
The purpose of the demonstration is to highlight ways in which stakeholders can collaborate to deliver practical, compelling solutions that benefit both providers and patients alike, while at the same time illustrating how new business models can be realised successfully. Despite the growing attention paid to eHealth market opportunities, there has been little progress to date in the delivery of relevant and tangible solutions that both meet business objectives and deliver enhanced patient care.
In order to show how barriers to eHealth market growth can be overcome, ISPM’s demonstration will focus on one of a number of potential business models that can be delivered today. At the event, ISPM will show how remote monitoring solutions that provide vital data for patient care can be realised to deliver on the promise of eHealthcare opportunities. The capture and delivery of simple, yet critical measurements and their incorporation into medical systems is the first step along the road to the deployment of large-scale eHealth projects that will deliver clear benefits to all stakeholders and is likely to be among the first real business cases for adoption of such services.
“eHealth is hugely promising and yet hasn’t really gained the expected momentum,” commented Washington Tavares, co-author of the award-winning project, premiered at the TMF’s Digital Disruption event in San Jose in 2013. “We will demonstrate the success of our efforts by taking the temperature and blood pressure of delegates in the audience. The data will be delivered in real-time to patient monitoring solutions and presented in a usable way to practitioners. Demonstrating this simple, yet powerful solution provides a clear indication of how new multi vendor eHealth business models can be realised and delivered successfully.”
Critical to the success of eHealth initiatives is commonality of approach and interoperability of systems. This requires standardisation and close collaboration between stakeholders to ensure reuse of components. However, many previous eHealth initiatives have floundered.
“This is because insufficient attention has been paid to the standardisation efforts required to make solutions and data reusable, interoperable and, above all, cost effective,” added Mr Tavares. “Now, ISPM has collaborated with other stakeholders to show how relevant and practical solutions can be created with common components and best practice from telecoms and IT networks, which shows how we are exploring ideas for business models, commercialisation and operational service implementation. The way to stimulate and accelerate adoption of eHealth services is to provide tangible, workable solutions that prepare the market and all stakeholders and demonstrate to CSPs how they can be capitalised.”
The efforts of ISPM and others clearly show how patient and business benefits can be delivered in tandem, while capitalising on industry initiatives to achieve best practice, such as the TM Forum’s Business Process Framework (eTOM). eTOM resolves interoperability and standardisation issues to help catalyse new opportunities in eHealth. Such initiatives provide clear templates for the emergence of the required business models and will help stimulate eHealth service realisation in Latin America and elsewhere.
ISPM will be joined by local healthcare providers at the TMF’s LatAm Focus, who will explain how the initiatives help meet their needs and will help stimulate eHealth opportunities in Latin America.

Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint was selected by Société Générale Group, one of Europe’s largest financial services groups, to provide a solution to the new tax reporting requirements imposed by the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The agreement sees French bank Société Générale Group join 50 banks worldwide in using BearingPoint’s tax reporting solution, FiTAX, in order to comply with the US Internal Revenue Services’ (IRS) FATCA regulation.
The multi-national bank, serving 32 million customers worldwide, will benefit from BearingPoint’s extensive experience in dealing with tax reporting as well as its long standing collaboration in the US and Luxembourg with one of the world’s leading auditing companies. The comprehensive knowledge transfer BearingPoint offers will enable Société Générale Group to share the know-how with a further 16 countries globally where a local implementation of FiTAX is planned.
“We are very pleased with Société Générale’s decision to choose us as their partner for this forward looking regulation project. The FiTAX-FATCA solution will allow Société Générale to benefit from a cutting-edge technology to comply with FATCA reporting requirements,” said Ronald Frey, Partner at BearingPoint.

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announces the release of the “Make God Bleed” Music Video by Big Sty. The project, presented by Coast 2 Coast Video Distribution, is now available for view on YouTube. The video is directed by George “Jig” Louden and shot by Hugh Burruss.
Big Sty is a rapper from Richmond, VA representing the DMV area. Always focused on the progress of Hip Hop culture, Big Sty tackles the philosophical questions surrounding what it means to be Hip Hop. A product of the powerful messages shared by Hip Hop legends NWA and Kool G Rap, Big Sty does not seek to only make a room bounce but focuses on bringing original lyrics and concepts that speak to the trials and tribulations of the modern Black man. He comes from a long tradition of socio-political conscious MCs who have directly influenced his decision to pick up the mic, some of these influences are KRS 1, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Biggie and Tupac.
Making his debut in 2004 with his hit single “It’s A Problem”, Big Sty laid it all out going after Hip Hop’s elite in what could only be described as a metaphorical blizzard freezing the music industry, executives, and artists in their tracks. The single caught a lot of attention but when it came to the fans received nothing but rave reviews. Building consistent street buzz with this mixtape series entitled “Best of Big Sty Vol. 1 and Vol. 2” he also released a double album titled “Stycology: Don’t Get Mad, Get Money” which set out to unite the Richmond VA scene showcasing much of the local talent. Beyond expanding his audience through recorded music Big Sty has perfected his live show opening for the likes of Juelz Santana, MC Lyte, Scarface, Outkast, and Lil’ Kim. A devote advocate for the culture, Big Sty continues to unite his scene and carry on the tradition of true Hip Hop. For more information on Big Sty check him out on his Twitter at @TheRealBigSty.

Oneida Nation Homelands (NY) (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
As part of its season-long Change the Mascot campaign to end the use of the R-word slur by Washington’s NFL team, the Oneida Indian Nation of New York today released a new radio ad entitled “Civil Rights” featuring civil rights leader and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.). Having helped organize Dr. King’s 1963 March on Washington, Norton says in the ad that if Dr. King were alive today, he would support the Change the Mascot campaign. The latest radio spot is set to run over Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend in Washington, D.C., as well as in Denver and Seattle, the sites of the NFL’s conference championship games.
“As the lone congressional representative of the District of Columbia and a renowned civil rights leader, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is a uniquely powerful voice telling the NFL that it must stop the Washington team from continuing to promote a dictionary-defined racial slur,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter. “As we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King this weekend, the NFL should honor his crusade for equality and mutual respect by finally using its power to change the Washington team’s name.”
As the Change the Mascot campaign’s radio ads have aired throughout the current NFL season, public health experts, civil rights groups, editorial boards, city councils, sports-industry icons, members of Congress from both parties, and the President of the United States have all spoken out against the Washington team’s continued use of the R-word.
Added Halbritter: “From city councils to top editorial boards to Members of Congress to the President of the United States, those supporters who have joined the Change the Mascot campaign understand a very simple truth: marketing a team with a slur against Native peoples is unacceptable, especially when the team represents our nation’s capital. The fact is that we don’t deserve to be treated as the target of such an epithet, we deserve to be treated as what we are: Americans.”
Last month, the membership of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the nation’s premier civil and human rights coalition representing more than 200 diverse national organizations, voted unanimously for a resolution urging the owner of the Washington NFL franchise to change the team’s offensive name.
The latest ads will air on radio stations WMAL in Washington, D.C., KDSP in Denver and KIRO in Seattle. You can learn more about the campaign and download the new ad at http://www.changethemascot.org.

Full text of the “Civil Rights” ad:
CONGRESSWOMAN HOLMES NORTON: “Hello, I am Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. It is my privilege to represent the residents of the District of Columbia.
The residents of the capital of our nation have always tried to set an example for tolerance and mutual respect. Yet the current name of our NFL football team stands in stark contrast to these values. Many of our residents, like me, were part of the civil rights movement or identify strongly with its goals and philosophy. We recognize that the Change the Mascot campaign to end the use of the ‘R-word’ is both a moral and civil rights issue in keeping with our city’s respect for the dignity of all people.
We have no doubt that if Martin Luther King Jr. could speak today, he would lend his support to the current efforts of our Native American brothers and sisters. We know from our history as African Americans in this country that offensive terms not only should, but can, be cast aside if we do not retreat into silence.
The Washington football team should change the mascot and make the name of our team a source of pride that honors D.C.’s tradition of respect for all Americans.”
