AMVETS Partners with Sync.MD to Revolutionize Veteran Health Records Management

gbafNews28

AMVETS and Sync.MD announced a strategic partnership formed for the purpose of streamlining health record management for veterans. This follows the implementation of the VA MISSION Act in June 2019 that allows eligible veterans to choose care in the community at VA expense. AMVETS and Sync.MD plan to provide more than 250,000 veterans with expanded personalized health information options through Sync.MDs patented technology to install and transport complete medical records securely on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

Sync.MD is thrilled to be entering this relationship with AMVETS, said Eugene Luskin, Sync.MD CEO. We have successfully improved care coordination in the private health sector through the use of our technology, and we believe those who served our country also deserve the best health care delivery and coordination possible. We are delighted to be able to help make that happen.

The first phase of the partnership involves the launch of a pilot to validate how the health service functions of AMVETS and the Sync.MD technology can work together. Both parties expect that the relationship will deliver significant improvements in the health care of veterans in terms of more timely access to medical information, reduced errors and oversights, and the ability to link otherwise incompatible medical records systems.

Health care coordination is critical to ensuring the wellness of veterans who often face a host of overlapping medical issues. This starts with empowering veterans, as well as their spouses and caregivers in many cases, with the ability to consolidate treatment records from multiple sources, so that at any given time a provider can appreciate a patients complete medical history, said AMVETS Chief Advocacy Officer Sherman Gillums. The partnership between AMVETS and Sync.MD represents a major step forward in the effort to put veterans in greater control of their health care and ultimately their lives.

The pilot is scheduled to launch on December 1, 2019.

AMVETS is the nations largest and oldest Congressionally-chartered veterans service organization that is open to and fights for all veterans who served honorably, including reservists & guardsmen. AMVETS has been a nonpartisan advocate for veterans and their families for more than 70 years. amvets.org

Sync.MD is a mobile app and website launched and operated by digital health startup VYRTY. Founded in 2015, Sync.MD was created for patients, by doctors, to help coordinate medical care and provide a secure, personal health record system that enables the sharing of data and information in real time.

CytoSorbents Launches International Campaign to Raise $100,000 for the Global Humanitarian Organization, CARE

gbafNews28

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J., Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CytoSorbents Corporation (NASDAQ: CTSO), a critical care immunotherapy leader that is commercializing its CytoSorb® blood purification technology to treat deadly inflammation in critically ill and cardiac surgery patients around the world, announces the launch of its international fundraising campaign to raise $100,000 to benefit the global, not-for-profit humanitarian organizations CARE. The international campaign, which begins today and runs through January 31, 2021, commemorates a major company milestone of having cumulatively shipped more than 100,000 CytoSorb cartridges worldwide.  As part of its commitment, CytoSorbents will provide a 1:1 match for all donations contributed to the campaign, until the target is reached.  All funds raised will go directly to CARE's COVID-19 Emergency Fund that will fund programs such as sanitation, disinfectants, and education to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases.

For 75 years, CARE has worked around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty, achieve social justice, and create better lives for many of the world's most vulnerable people.  In 2020, CARE worked in over 100 countries, reaching more than 90 million people through 1,300 projects.  CARE's programs focus on humanitarian aid in natural disasters, helping to fight hunger and malnutrition, improving the well-being of mothers and children, promoting sanitation and good hygiene to prevent the spread of diseases like COVID-19, and supporting the education of young girls and the safe and fair labor of women.

Dr. Phillip Chan, Chief Executive Officer of CytoSorbents stated, “CytoSorbents is an international company working to save the lives of critically ill patients, including those with severe COVID-19 illness, across 66 countries worldwide.  Because of this, we are pleased to support CARE in its like-minded mission to improve the lives of those in greatest need.   CytoSorbents is proud to provide a 1:1 match on the anticipated generous donations from our network of employees, investors, partners, customers, and other supporters from around the world, with the goal of raising $100,000 for CARE and its COVID-19 Emergency Fund.  Since most of the countries we serve are also supported by CARE, this fundraising campaign will provide an opportunity to give back to many of our own communities.  Please join us in supporting this worthy cause during the holiday season.”

To participate in this donation-matching campaign, individuals can donate to CARE through the following CytoSorbents link:  https://charity.cytosorb-therapy.com/en/home/  (which can also be found on the CytoSorbents' website) through January 31, 2021. 

About CytoSorbents Corporation (NASDAQ: CTSO)

CytoSorbents Corporation is a leader in critical care immunotherapy, specializing in blood purification. Its flagship product, CytoSorb® is approved in the European Union with distribution in 66 countries around the world, as an extracorporeal cytokine adsorber designed to reduce the “cytokine storm” or “cytokine release syndrome” that could otherwise cause massive inflammation, organ failure and death in common critical illnesses. These are conditions where the risk of death is extremely high, yet no effective treatments exist. CytoSorb® is also being used during and after cardiac surgery to remove inflammatory mediators that can lead to post-operative complications, including multiple organ failure. CytoSorb® has been used in more than 110,000 human treatments to date.  CytoSorb has received CE-Mark label expansions for the removal of bilirubin (liver disease), myoglobin (trauma) and both ticagrelor and rivaroxaban during cardiothoracic surgery.  CytoSorb has also received FDA Emergency Use Authorization in the United States for use in critically ill COVID-19 patients with imminent or confirmed respiratory failure, in defined circumstances.  CytoSorb has also been granted FDA Breakthrough Designation for the removal of ticagrelor in a cardiopulmonary bypass circuit during emergent and urgent cardiothoracic surgery.

CytoSorbents' purification technologies are based on biocompatible, highly porous polymer beads that can actively remove toxic substances from blood and other bodily fluids by pore capture and surface adsorption. Its technologies have received non-dilutive grant, contract, and other funding of more than $38 million from DARPA, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), Air Force Material Command (USAF/AFMC), and others. The Company has numerous products under development based upon this unique blood purification technology protected by many issued U.S. and international patents and multiple applications pending, including ECOS-300CY™, CytoSorb-XL™, HemoDefend-RBC™, HemoDefend-BGA™, VetResQ™, K+ontrol™, ContrastSorb, DrugSorb, and others.    For more information, please visit the Company's websites at www.cytosorbents.com and www.cytosorb.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Cola Wealth Advisors Pitches in to Bring Thanksgiving Meals to the Hungry

gbafNews28

COLUMBIA, S.C., Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rick Mantei and the team at Cola Wealth Advisors are doing their part to ensure that those in need in Columbia don't go hungry this Thanksgiving.

Although the holiday means gatherings of families and friends (even if via Zoom this year) and lots of food for many Americans, for more than 100,000 children in South Carolina, it means just another day of hunger.

As in years past, Cola Wealth Advisors is donating to Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia. And this year the team is asking its clients to help with the cause.

As South Carolina's largest food bank, Harvest Hope provides over 50,000 meals a week to individuals and families in need across 20 counties. According to the nonprofit group, 1 in 6 people in South Carolina don't have enough to eat. Harvest Food rescues food items from grocery stores and collects donated food to distribute through churches, food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens around the state. It has established emergency food pantries in Greenville and Columbia to provide food to anyone in need. Its mission is to ensure that anyone facing hunger can find relief, whether it is a short-term need in a time of hardship or an ongoing situation.

Through the third week of November, Cola Wealth Advisors will have a donation bin in the lobby of its Lexington office, 4580 Sunset Boulevard, Columbia, for its clients to help the team help our neighbors in need. All dry and canned goods will be happily accepted.

For more information about Harvest Hope and to learn about more ways you can help, visit harvesthope.org, where you can also make a monetary donation. From our family to yours, we wish you a safe and plentiful holiday, and we thank you for your generosity in helping give others the gift of Thanksgiving.
