Payments with a Twist – Introducing the Bouncepad Mobi


As the leaders in engaging tablet solutions, Bouncepad are redefining point of sale to help brick-and-mortar compete with the online world. Today, they announce the launch of their new product “ the Bouncepad Mobi.

Mobi transforms an iPad into a mobile point of sale in seconds: ideal for retail and hospitality, the enclosure keeps card readers securely attached to the case using Bouncepad’s patent-pending MagTwist Connector. The magnetic fixing-point means that with a simple twist, the card reader separates, ready to take payment.

To increase uptime and reduce wear usually associated with fast-paced environments, Mobi uses contact points rather than cables to charge. The unique charging dock keeps the iPad and card reader powered-up, ready to take payment anywhere, anytime.

The portable design means Mobi assists every touchpoint; take orders, tackle queues, share content and take payment. Transportation of the device is made easy and safe by the comfortable and resilient nylon-weave, removable strap.

Years of making enterprise tablet accessories, and exceeding the drop-proofing standard MIL-STD-810G, results in a slim and strong form, specifically designed for staff to grab-and-go.

Mobi and Magtwist are compatible with all popular card readers like Square, PayPal Here, and SumUp, as well as the iPad Pro 9.7″, iPad 5 (2017), iPad 6 (2018), and iPad Air 2.

With the current pressure on retailers and merchants to deliver the best possible customer experience, Bouncepad’s Mobi redefines how employees can approach point of sale. The customer-centric design is an efficient and affordable solution for small to medium businesses and a cost-effective option to roll out.

Northwell Receives $1.4M NIH Grant to Establish Gun Violence Prevention Screening


Northwell Health has been awarded $1.4 million from the National Institutes of Health to study gun violence prevention and establish and implement a first-of-its-kind protocol to universally screen among those at risk of firearm injury. The grant is part of the health systems We Ask Everyone. Firearm Safety is a Health Issue research study, which aims to shift the paradigm to view gun violence as a public health issue and approach firearm injury risk similarly to other health risk factors that are part of routine care, like smoking, substance use and motor vehicle accidents.

We Ask Everyone. Firearm Safety is a Health Issue will establish evidence-based screening and intervention strategies within three of its hospitals. Led by Drs. Chethan Sathya, director of Northwells Center for Gun Violence Prevention, and Sandeep Kapoor, the study will pilot at South Shore University Hospital in Bay Shore, NY, Cohen Childrens Medical Center, a pediatric trauma center on the Queens-Nassau County border that is the accepting facility for adolescent trauma for more than five counties, and Staten Island University Hospital each of which are in regions with critical need for firearm injury and mortality prevention, and areas with at-risk youth.

Northwell plans to expand We Ask Everyone. Firearm Safety is a Health Issue across the health system.

Gun violence is a public health issue and this NIH-funded study is a step in the right direction to finally addressing it as one, said Michael Dowling, Northwell president and CEO. Unfortunately, we have been dealing with two pandemics COVID-19 and gun violence. By screening for firearm safety in our facilities, we can better understand how and why this senseless blood shed continues to increase at historic rates.

Northwell received the NIH grant as gun violence continues to rise across the country and remains the leading cause of premature death in the US nearly 40,000 people dying each year, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In August, shootings doubled and murders increased 50 percent in New York City, according to the NYPD, compared to the same timeframe in 2019. Since May, there have been 791 shootings in New York City alone, which was a 140-plus percent increase over the same period in 2019.

The glaring statistics continue to spike not just here in New York, but across the United States as well, said Dr. Sathya, who is also associate medical director for trauma and a pediatric general and thoracic surgeon at Cohen Childrens. This NIH grant will fully support We Ask Everyone. Firearm Safety is a Health Issue and allow us to expand upon the limited clinical studies that have primarily focused on outpatient settings or used targeted vs. universal screening, which can exclude at-risk patients.

Adherence is key, and We Ask Everyone. Firearm Safety is a Health Issue combined with Northwell treating gun violence as the public health issue will push boundaries, eliminate knowledge gaps and prevent accidental deaths and even suicides.

Under We Ask Everyone. Firearm Safety is a Health Issue, clinicians in the ED will ask patients specific questions about having firearms in their homes and determine their risk of injury. Each response is scored and embedded into the patients electronic health record, which will help guide discussions and establish next steps for care. Motivational interviews, education and other resources will also be available.

The study follows a similar protocol as the health systems Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), a screening program that was implemented in its emergency departments several years ago to identify substance use and connect patients to treatment. Through SBIRT, Northwell completed 1.5 million patient screens across 18 EDs and many inpatient and outpatient settings, resulting in 23,000 brief interventions and 8,000 referrals. SBIRT was initially federally funded and has since been sustained across the health system.

We are creating opportunities for patients to speak with their trusted clinical teams about firearm safety and recognize firearm safety as a health care issue, said Dr. Kapoor, AVP for addiction services for Northwells Emergency Medicine Services and director of SBIRT. As we have seen with SBIRT, we can make a difference for our communities by asking the right questions and providing the right education and connections to resources.

The objective here is mirror that success and reverse the trend of rising suicides and preventable firearm injuries and deaths. Its a major sea change for health care and can prove to be a significant tool in fighting the gun violence epidemic.

Northwell and gun violence

The NIH grant builds on the momentum from Northwells 2019 Gun Violence Prevention Forum, where Mr. Dowlings call-to-action encouraged health care and political leaders to work for sensible gun legislation, more investment in mental health, more education and greater preparation for staff and communities. He also pledged $1 million to the effort, which helped establish the Center for Gun Violence Prevention.

Mr. Dowling also appointed Dr. Sathya to head the center, which is tasked with shaping the role that health systems play in advancing safety, education, prevention and research, and he formed an advisory committee comprised of prominent voices on gun violence prevention.

Northwell is scheduled to host the second Gun Violence Prevention Forum virtually on December 10.

Supplyframe VP Wins Supply & Demand Chain Executive Women in Supply Chain Award


Supplyframe today announced that its own Sarah Rich, vice president of operations and customer success, has received The Women in Supply Chain award, which honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a companys supply chain network. The award was presented by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, which launched this award program to celebrate the magazines 20-year anniversary.

This is just the latest first for Rich, who joined Supplyframe in 2003 as its first employee and has been at the forefront of digital transformation in the electronics value chain for decades through her work in customer advocacy and change management. Supplyframe brought on Rich to launch the company and enable the initial go-to-market strategy through work on customer engagement, sales training and solution demonstrations.

As Supplyframe expanded globally, Rich developed teams to support customer adoption of Supplyframe software-as-a-service solutions addressing procurement, strategic sourcing and supply management. She was also instrumental in building teams for Supplyframe media solutions, which enable electronics distributors and component suppliers to understand and influence engineering design cycles and purchasing decisions for new product design cycles.

Businesses today source parts and manage supplier risk across a volatile global electronics value chain “ and recent events around the pandemic have only complicated this situation, said Rich. Companies today need to view their supply chain solutions as not just specialized teams with distinct platforms and tools, but as expert networks both inside and outside their organizations. This shift in thinking will allow high-potential leaders and creative problem-solvers to challenge the assumptions of current processes and departmental key performance indicators and review new opportunities more holistically across the supply chain.

Rich was selected for The Women in Supply Chain award from a field of more than 200 professionals in the industry. The winners will appear in September issue of SDCE. Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics, said: According to Gartners 2020 Women in Supply Chain Survey, 17% of chief supply chain officers are now women “ a 6% increase compared to 2019. This award resembles females supporting other female leaders; men supporting their female counterparts. It resembles the future. It represents growth, evolution and community. And, that future shows that its a great time to be a part of the supply chain industry. So, congratulations to these top female leaders. I look forward to seeing what else you do to grow the supply chain industry.

Supplyframe Chief Marketing Officer Richard Barnett added: We are excited that Sarah has been recognized for her meaningful contributions to the electronics supply chain industry. Sarah continues her work to make the supply chain process more connected, intelligent and dynamic. She is always inspiring customers to embrace the challenger philosophy, which presents them with the greatest growth and opportunity. She helps customers turn strategic visions into reality by encouraging them to adopt best practices and impactful new solutions to improve decision-making and drive near- and long-term product and business success.”
