“Many companies have a wealth of content already posted to social media channels that for one reason or another does not find the appropriate audience.” Spontbox founder Mo Nasseri said of his motivation to start the company. “Much of this social content never reaches their consumer base. Our technology parlays this existing content into digital signage for display within a business to maximize the impact and visibility of its social media efforts.”

The company plans to grow with the rebounding U.S. automotive market, which saw a 50% increase in manufacturing sales from 2009 to 2013.

State of Connecticut Selects eiPortal for Healthcare Integration from PilotFish for Meaningful Use Testing

MIDDLETOWN, CT (PRWEB) March 04, 2013

Applied PilotFish Healthcare Integration, a provider of middleware solutions, announced today that the State of Connecticut has commenced implementation of the PilotFish eiPortal to support reporting requirements for Stage 1 Meaningful Use testing efforts.

The eiPortal, a cloud-based application, provides 24/7 access to all the implementation resources required to build an interface along with a fully automated, self-service, interface testing and validation facility that will be configured for reporting requirements.

Any common or standards-based message can be configured as an eiPortal service. Each service can be associated with a unique set of business rules, data quality checks and other validations. Once a service is configured, data exchange partners can submit messages electronically for automated review. Subsequently, a web-based UI displays immediate, detailed feedback. It also provides simulated responses (synchronous and asynchronous) to inbound messages, again without requiring human intervention or full test environments. Users can refine their interface and achieve conformance without involving their service provider.

“The State of Connecticut is really able to leverage the self-registration and automation capabilities of the eiPortal to perform Stage 1 Meaningful Use testing and HL7 format and content validation. This will enable all hospitals and practices in the State of Connecticut to build interfaces that will conform to healthcare interoperability standards,” said Neil Schappert, Executive Chairman of Applied PilotFish Healthcare Integration. “Starting with HL7 immunization messages, the State will configure services for each Meaningful Use reporting requirement. As each organization that is looking for documentation for Stage 1 attestation for reporting meets these requirements, a certificate will be issued through the eiPortal’s automated process. The time savings for State employees will be considerable.”

The eiPortal greatly exceeds the basic Meaningful Use requirements of just capturing and verifying the electronic transmission of this data. It is also capable of certifying the conformance of these messages against national standards and internal processing requirements. This capability positions Connecticut to manage future-stage Meaningful Use testing, and to use the eiPortal as a pre-production, self-service on-boarding tool to greatly benefit Connecticut healthcare providers. The on-boarding tool will ready them to begin the move to full production for Stage 2 reporting.

“We are excited to partner with PilotFish for our Meaningful Use testing,” commented Mark Raymond, CIO for the State of Connecticut. “The eiPortal allows us to eliminate significant human intervention, while providing a higher level of service to our providers, than would otherwise have been possible.”

“States and organizations are spending millions of dollars working with different partners implementing the same message over and over again. It is a repetitive process that is intensely reliant on expensive human capital. The eiPortal provides a unique solution to automating this process. It frees up IT staffs not just in Government, but in Labs, at HIEs and Manufacturers or any entity that offers a standard set of interfaces, file formats or web services for consumption by many customers,” said Neil Schappert. “Meeting this critical need for the State of Connecticut for Meaningful Use certification is just one example. We are thrilled with the opportunity to help our home state be more efficient. We are also pleased to provide the state’s practices and hospitals with an online resource that lets them meet Meaningful Use requirements faster and with far less effort.”

Applied PilotFish Healthcare Integration is exhibiting at HiMSS13, March 4-6, 2013, New Orleans, LA, Booth #7941 – see live demos of the eiPortal and eiConsole for Healthcare (an IDE featuring a graphical Assembly Line for configuring interfaces).

About PilotFish

Founded in 2001 and based in Middletown, CT, PilotFish Technology provides middleware software and services to enable the integration of disparate systems. The eiPortal for Healthcare Integration is distributed through Applied PilotFish Healthcare Integration, Inc. (APHII), a subsidiary of PilotFish Technology. Products are distributed directly to end users and through select channel partners.

Headquarters U.S. National Guard Bureau at Arlington Hall Virginia Standardizes on Desktop Alert Notification System

Chatham, New Jersey (PRWEB) November 14, 2014

Desktop Alert Inc., the industry leader in ‘less than one minute’ network-centric mass warning notification systems (MWNS) to military, government, healthcare, higher education and industrial organizations, today announced that Headquarters U.S. National Guard Bureau at Arlington Hall Virginia has standardized on the Desktop Alert Notification System.

The Facility serves the Army Readiness Center and the NGB Headquarter Staff. Recently the National Guard Bureau Joint Staff including both Air National Guard and Army National Guard personnel relocated to Arlington Hall. Personnel are now further protected by the Desktop Alert System’s integration with the Fire Safety and Alarm systems.

Desktop Alert can contact thousands of computer users at their desktop and require them to click to confirm receipt of the message flashed on their screen. Those not verified are then listed on a report and/or sent as an integrated “Target Package” to be automatically contacted by other means such as email, sms, texting, smartphone, and personal safety devices.

National Guard Bureau is a channel of communications between the states and the Departments of the Army and the Air Force. For more than 80 years the National Guard Bureau has experienced many changes and important historical events, most notably four wars, the post-World-War-II reorganization of the National Guard, and the creation of a separate Air Force.

Today, the mission of the National Guard Bureau is to participate with the Army and Air Force staffs in programs pertaining to the National Guard. The NGB is responsible for administering programs for the development and maintenance of Army and Air National Guard units in the 50 states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, and Guam.

“We have served Arlington Hall since 2009. We are very honored that the National Guard Headquarters has finalized its decision and standardized on our mass notification platform. It is our mission at Desktop Alert to provide our customers with reliable ip-based notification systems capable of getting the message to the right people when seconds count. Our integration with Facility Fire Safety provides today’s military with the ideal notification solution for an increasingly challenging environment. It has been well demonstrated that Desktop Alert can deliver notifications at a higher rate of speed with fewer resources than all other notification capabilities previously used by the Department of Defense” said Howard Ryan, CEO Desktop Alert Inc.
