Craig Research Continuum Launches eQuity Tool™: Online Application Helps Optimize Case Management Caseloads

Craig Research Continuum Launches eQuity Tool™: Online Application Helps Optimize Case Management Caseloads

The eQuity Workflow Solutions has been implemented by several nationally-recognized healthcare organizations with positive results. Future clients now will have access to the eQuity Tool, which can be used in combination with the eQuity Workflow Solutions, to help automate the process of assessing the severity, intensity, and complexity of case manager caseloads into quantifiable and actionable information.

Annapolis, MD (Vocus/PRWEB) December 07, 2010

Craig Research Continuum (CRC) announces the launch of eQuity Tool™, an online application that improves the performance of care management (CM) programs through the standardization of clinical workflows and the optimization of caseloads. The application is based upon the consulting solution developed by Kathy Craig, MS, RN, CCM, over the past ten years, referred to as the eQuity Workflow Solutions™.

The eQuity Workflow Solutions has been implemented by several nationally-recognized healthcare organizations with positive results. Future clients now will have access to the eQuity Tool, which can be used in combination with the eQuity Workflow Solutions, to help automate the process of assessing the severity, intensity, and complexity of case manager caseloads into quantifiable and actionable information.

Mae Taylor Moss, MS, DHA, FAAN, AVP clinical operations for Accordant Health Services, a CVS Caremark Company, notes that “eQuity has improved the consistency of Accordant’s care management programs from a staffing perspective. Our clinical team is using data generated from the eQuity process to more accurately assign and maintain patient caseloads for our case managers.”

Another satisfied customer is Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA). “Implementing eQuity allowed us to effectively integrate our business requirements and clinical protocols in a manner that significantly improved the quality and consistency of our case management program,” according to Anne Flaherty-Quemere, RN, BA, business unit manager at BCBSMA.

"As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, there is an increasing need to provide client-focused solutions,” notes Kathy Craig, the founder of CRC and strategic partner with Schooner Healthcare Services, LLC” “Establishing process, performance, and outcome instruments based on evidence-based research, validated tools, feedback loops, and standardized workflows is required for the next generation of care management solutions. The new eQuity Tool is an important building block for reaching the next level.”

“Our goal was to use a statistically validated tool to understand the acuity of our case management populations,” adds BCBSMA’s Flaherty-Quemere, “To that end, eQuity accomplished that goal. Ms. Craig’s solution empowered us to quantify the weights of our case managers’ caseloads, promoted helpful and insightful conversations about key workflows based on objective measurable data, and allowed us to analyze the data to ensure that the correct populations are being targeted for CM interventions.”

Accordant’s Dr. Moss elaborates “eQuity allows us to do a better job targeting our case management interventions and measuring outcomes. In addition, employee morale has improved with the ability to provide better feedback loops.”

Ms. Craig works with companies to engage in a “reflective practice” assessment that enhances the precision and continuity of client caseloads and workflows. Through a dynamic corporate-needs and inter-rater reliability assessment, she coaches companies on how to take their CM operations to the next level. Her solutions generate quality enhancements that lead to caseload equity, ties CM practice to clinical outcomes and opens up a robust dialogue between the front-line case managers, CM supervisors, and business managers. Craig’s eQuity Workflow Solutions, along with the new eQuity Tool, offers a powerful combination to improve the productivity and job satisfaction of case managers in many companies.

Features of eQuity Workflow Solutions include:
 Expert assistance to integrate eQuity into a client’s documentation or technology system;  Training programs geared for case managers, train-the-trainers and supervisors;  Analysis of clients’ case management practices to discover gaps and workarounds;  Inter-rater reliability testing for uniform use of eQuity and reliable data output;  Creation of caseload stratification to show caseload complexity and case manager skill level; and  Establishing the eQuity Data Trifecta – process, performance, and outcome reports.

The eQuity Tool helps automate the eQuity Workflow Solutions. The eQuity Tool is a web-based system that helps case managers determine the complexity of their caseload based on the options they select from columns in a carefully constructed, easy to use, science-based chart. Once selections are made by the case manager, the program provides an ‘acuity score’ for each case manager’s caseload. The scores are then used to make decisions on future caseload assignments, caseload stratifications, individual performance and skill enhancements, eQuity-based teaching opportunities, product line refinements and other process improvements, and adding case management-specific outcomes to business reports such as savings and ROI.

“The software is so easy to use, and it builds on the systems that most companies already have internally,” Craig notes. “In addition to the robust eQuity Workflow Solutions, companies can choose from an ‘a la carte’ menu of products and services that includes the eQuity tool, webinars, workshops, and customizable consulting.”

California Cream Perfume Company Launches Quartet of Top Selling Solid Perfumes in Sephora Stores Beginning January 2009

California Cream Perfume Company Launches Quartet of Top Selling Solid Perfumes in Sephora Stores Beginning January 2009

California-based cream perfume company continues fast-paced roll-out of popular nuts® brand of cream perfumes in a distribution agreement with Sephora USA.

Monarch Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2008

The Cream Perfume Company (http://www. thecreamperfumecompany. com/) of Monarch Beach, California, operating as LMCC Enterprises, announced today an agreement with Sephora USA, Inc. to distribute four top-selling fragrances from their fast-growing line of nuts® cream perfumes in Sephora stores and online at sephora. com starting January 2009.

"There is a strong resurgent interest in cream and solid based delivery of premium fragrances, largely based on the movement to more natural and organic ingredients," said LMCC President Mary Johnston. "Many people are not aware that perfumes existed as unguents or ointments for thousands of years before alcohol emerged as a popular carrier in the 1300's. While alcohol acts as an excellent diffuser of aromatic oils, it also dehydrates the skin and quickly dissipates the fragrant notes. Concentrated fragrance oils and essential oils can also be diluted by jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil and sweet almond oil as natural alternatives and lightly moisturizing carriers."

"All of our perfumes are designed by internationally renowned perfumers and made by the local artisans of Grasse, France. We use natural and organic sweet almond oil and beeswax exclusively to dilute our fragrances as a healthier alternative to alcohol solvents," said Mary Johnston. "This allows us to look to nature for a renewable source of refreshing simplicity, beauty and inspiration. Today, we purchase all our container material as environmentally friendly residual wood from small mills that meet the criteria set out by the Forest Stewardship Council."

"We are pleased to retail four fragrances from the nuts® cream perfume line," says Allison Slater, VP of Retail Marketing, Sephora. "We are constantly on the lookout for natural and organic brands - especially in the fragrance arena - and we believe our clients will not only be excited by the natural ingredient base, they will also value the long-lasting scents and the eco-chic packaging - a one-of-a-kind wooden jar."

Nuts® cream perfumes retail for $20 and will be available in Mango poudré, Mimosa bouquet, Ylang Ylang d'amore, and Melon d'eau, in Sephora and sephora. com from January 2009.

About The Cream Perfume Company (http://www. thecreamperfumecompany. com/):
We are an innovative designer and manufacturer of cosmetics and toiletries based in Orange County, California. The company is a proud member of the Natural Products Association and caters to active lifestyle enthusiasts and to people all over the world who share an appreciation for natural, effective and affordable personal care products.

Sephora Europe has more than 500 stores within 14 countries and has established 30 locations in China. Thanks to Sephora's recent partnerships with HSN, a global multi-channel retailing giant, and JCPenney, one of America's largest department stores, the beauty authority is now accessible to more clients than ever before.

Independent Public Relations Alliance Receives Top Honors from 2004 Magellan Awards for Pro Bono Campaign - Recognized As One of the Top 50 Publicity Campaigns Of 2004

Independent Public Relations Alliance Receives Top Honors from 2004 Magellan Awards for Pro Bono Campaign - Recognized As One of the Top 50 Publicity Campaigns Of 2004

The Independent Public Relations Alliance, a section of the National Capital Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, received top honors in the 2004 Magellan Awards for the pro bono work completed this past year on behalf of the Center for Child Protection and Family Support. The Center is a Washington, DC-based community organization that addresses the effects of child abuse and victimization by providing innovative school-based and parent education programming, along with training and consulting for area professionals. Judges voted IPRA’s integrated communications plan among the best “50 Publicity Campaigns of 2004," and bestowed an honors award in the “Organizational Communications” category.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 7, 2005

The Independent Public Relations Alliance, a section of the National Capital Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, received top honors in the 2004 Magellan Awards for the pro bono work completed this past year on behalf of the Center for Child Protection and Family Support. The Center is a Washington, DC-based community organization that addresses the effects of child abuse and victimization by providing innovative school-based and parent education programming, along with training and consulting for area professionals.

Judges voted IPRA’s integrated communications plan among the best “50 Publicity Campaigns of 2004”, and bestowed an honors award in the “Organizational Communications” category. The Magellan Awards, a publicity campaign competition sponsored by the San Diego-based League of American Communications Professionals, attracts entries from a wide-range of PR agencies, corporations, and independents. This year the competition drew more than 300 entries, which were judged in peer-level competitions. The competition class winners can be seen at: http://www. lacp. com/2004magellan/C8.htm (http://www. lacp. com/2004magellan/C8.htm).

“We are honored by this tremendous recognition from our peers,” said Sandra Wills Hannon, Ph. D., co-chair of the IPRA pro-bono committee. “But even more important is the essential work of The Center that we are proud to have been associated with this past year. Child abuse is an issue that needs greater discussion within our communities and among the health care professions.”

In early 2004, 18 members of IPRA, a network of 80 independent public relations professionals in metro-DC, teamed up and selected The Center as IPRAÂ’s first pro bono client. IPRAÂ’s goal was to establish the Center as a regional and national leader in addressing child victimization issues. In addition, it wanted to raise overall awareness about the prevalence and consequences of child abuse, position the Center as a resource for the media and peer organizations, and help broaden the CenterÂ’s base of funding support. Targets included the news media, potential funders, allied organizations and professionals dealing with child maltreatment, and the general public, especially clients of the Center and families who could benefit from its services.

IPRAÂ’s pro bono services enabled the Center to organize its first regional forum on child sexual abuse. The success of this event set the stage for a second regional conference in 2005. In conjunction with the forum, IPRAÂ’s team secured radio interviews and media coverage in both local and national publications and websites. The CenterÂ’s website hits increased and the Center received two grants totaling $650,000 as a result of the visibility from the campaign and the technical assistance IPRA provided.

The Center was selected by IPRAÂ’s pro bono committee in early 2004 after a three-month search under the leadership of its co-chairs Rita Mhley, president of Mhley/Davis and Associates, Inc. in Rockville, Md,. and Sandra Wills Hannon, Ph. D., principal of The Hannon Group in Fort Washington, Md. The success of the campaign has led IPRA to extend its pro bono services to The Center in 2005. In 2005 the pro bono committee will be led by Helen Sullivan, principal of InHouse Communications, LLC, and Julie Phillips-Turner, of Phillips-Turner Communications.

“It is important to our members to give back to the community,” said Mhley. “We feel that we have contributed to the recognition of the Center and look forward to working with them in the coming year.”

Members of the IPRA pro bono team included: Sean OÂ’Neill (Symmetrix Public Relations & Communications Strategies, Potomac, Md.) and Helen Sullivan (InHouse Communications, McLean, Va.) on strategic planning; Bill Yamanaka (Arrow Mountain, Manassas, Va.) and John McKeon (John J. McKeon, Inc., Chevy Chase, Md.) on writing; Robert Udowitz (independent, Fairfax, Va.) and Christine Moore (NextWave Communications, Inc., Ashburn, Va.) on media relations; Heathere Evans-Keenan (Keenan PR, Arlington, Va.) and Bill Outlaw (Outlaw Group, Alexandria, Va.) on media training; and, Mary-Jane Atwater (Atwater Communications, Alexandria, Va.) and Julie Phillips-Turner (Phillips-Turner Communications, Queenstown, Md.) on Web redesign and content.

The IPRA network [www. ipralliance. com] is a section of the National Capital Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and consists of senior-level public relations and marketing executives who own or operate their own practices, have three or fewer employees and belong to the world’s largest professional organization for PR practitioners, PRSA. A majority of members have been in business for three or more years, average 18 years of experience and together provide specialized services across 36 industry sectors to clients as diverse as “Fortune 500” companies, small businesses, associations, nonprofits and government agencies. PRSA’s local National Capital Chapter [www. prsa-ncc. org], is the country’s largest with nearly 1,100 members.

Note to Editors: High-resolution images from the campaign as well as images of IPRAÂ’s logo are available upon request.

Global Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment Market to Reach US$8.0 Billion by 2015, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc

Global Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment Market to Reach US$8.0 Billion by 2015, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment markets. The global market for blood processing supplies and equipment is forecast to reach US$8.0 billion by the year 2015. Key factors driving market growth include increasing need for blood and blood products worldwide, concerns over spread of infectious diseases through donated blood, and emergence and growth of cord blood. Growth is also being driven by ever-rising demand for safe and enhanced quality of blood, escalating regulatory requirements, and improving healthcare infrastructure in developing countries.

San Jose, California (Vocus) October 26, 2010

Aging population in developed regions, increasing cancer treatment, and a rapid increase in complex surgical procedures, including open heart and orthopedic surgeries are driving demand for blood products globally. Infectious diseases, including hepatitis and AIDS, are the major perils, which pose constant threat to blood supply. To avoid the inflow of infected blood donations into the blood supply, the blood testing industry is developing and marketing diagnostics tests for infectious diseases. As modern medicine is heavily tied to the availability of adequate and safe blood, several advances are being made towards this end. Sophisticated equipment for blood processing is providing a base for future market opportunities. Besides, the market is expected to witness a bright outlook on account of new techniques of collecting and processing blood, new blood screening tests, new blood products, proliferating gains in basic research, and execution of further automation in testing and collection. All these factors are expected to create significant demand for blood processing supplies and equipment used in blood collection, processing, and storage.

Europe represents the largest market for blood processing supplies and equipment worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment. The US constitutes the single largest regional market worldwide. However, growth is expected to primarily emanate from developing regions such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East. Asia-Pacific demand for blood processing supplies and equipment is forecast to increase at a compounded annual growth rate of more than 5.0% during the analysis period. Segment wise, Hematology Reagents represents the largest product segment worldwide. Hematology reagents are used specifically during cell counting and determination of cell properties. In addition, they are also used for detecting anti bodies present in donated blood. Coagulation Reagents are expected to clock the fastest gains through the analysis period. Coagulation reagents are used for analyzing coagulation and bleeding disorders. Some of the important coagulation reagents include APTT reagents, thromboplastin plastinex, platelet extract reagent, reptilase, arachidonic acid, factor assay reagents, and others.

Major players in the blood processing supplies and equipment profiled in the report include Beckman Coulter Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, CaridianBCT Inc., Fenwal Inc., Fresenius Kabi AG, Haemonetics Corp, Immucor Inc., Pall Corp., Terumo Corp., among others.

The research report titled “Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of the Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment markets, current market trends, key growth drivers, structure of blood products and industry services, overview of blood banking, overview of select blood processing equipment, recent product introductions, recent industry activity, and profiles of major/niche global as well as regional market participants. The report provides annual sales estimates and projections for Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment market for the following geographic markets - US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Rest of World. Key segments analyzed include Blood Administration Sets, Blood Bank Freezers, Blood Bank Refrigerators, Blood Cell Processors, Blood Cell Washer Bags, Blood Collection Needles, Blood Collection & Micro Collectors, Blood Collection Tube Adapters, Blood Donor Sets, Blood Filters, Blood Grouping Analyzers, Blood Lancets, Blood Sample Mailers, Blood Sampling Kits, Blood Tube Mixes, Blood Warming Coils/Pouches, Cleaning Solutions, Donor Blood (Blood Bank) Mix, Blood Grouping Reagents, Coagulation Reagents, Hematology Reagents, Hematology Stains, Control Plasmas, Hematocrit Centrifuges, Microscopic Slides, Sedimentation Tubes, Slide Stainers, Specimen Labels, Test Tube Racks, and Vials. A seven-year (2000-2006) historic analysis is provided for additional perspective.

In addition, the forum offers Connecture’s clients a way to communicate and to learn from each other.

During Connecture’s May User Conference in Atlanta, carriers expressed their interest in talking with other Connecture clients for staying on top of health reform changes, especially as it relates to Connecture’s InsureConnect product suite.

Expanded their Health Reform Team, who are dedicated to researching health reform, evaluating its impact on Connecture’s current and future offerings, and communicating progress with their clients Summarized the 2010 health insurance market changes in the Patient’s Bill of Rights, provided a checklist of the impacts to clients, and incorporated reform requirements into the InsureConnect product roadmap Built a Health Reform Client Forum website where clients can access the latest Connecture information related to health reform and discuss impacts with other Connecture health insurer clients In the July User Web Meeting, Connecture provided further information on their Health Reform Strategy and rolled out the new Health Reform Client Forum. “Everyone needs a little help in navigating through the regulations, and there is no reason our clients should go through it alone,” commented Bob Barry, Senior Vice President of Product and Market Strategy at Connecture. “Many are tasked with similar technology enhancements, and it makes sense to provide a means for them to ask questions of one another. We are very happy to provide this value-added service right now.”

Beauty Company Introduces Shampoo for $1,000 per Bottle - Guarantees Love

Beauty Company Introduces Shampoo for $1,000 per Bottle - Guarantees Love

New salon shampoo guarantees love.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) July 8, 2008

When is a bottle of shampoo worth $1,000? Hal Robb the Managing Director for Nutralove, a Health and Beauty Company stated, "With gas north of $4 per gallon or south of $5 per gallon depending on how you look at it, it seems the only way to justify a bottle of shampoo selling for $1,000 is if we could actually bottle love." Robb claims that he can guarantee that each bottle contains love and not because Nutralove packs each shampoo bottle with nutrients, herbs and vitamins with its patent pending love shot ampoule's but because each $1000 bottle of Love shampoo comes with a $1,000 donation for St Jude's children's hospital.

"Most people talk about love as something to get, we have turned that around into something to give, and no children's charity is more worthy than St Jude's Children's Hospital," according to Robb. St. Jude's is one of the premier pediatrics hospitals in the United States specializing in solutions for cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

"Because each Love shampoo always has an extra, such as our love shot ampoule's stored in each cap that adds fresh and potent herbs and vitamins we have added the entire developments teams signature to each of the limited edition $1,000 bottles of Love shampoo sold during July," commented Karen Parker, General Manager of Nutralove. Additionally, Nutralove is donating 20 percent of the sales price of each shampoo sold online during the month of July.

Nutralove has offices in France, Thailand and the United States and can be reached at 877-918-LOVE or at www. nutralove. com.

Health and Beauty Net now Offers Red Wine Concentrated Anti-Aging Pill

Health and Beauty Net now Offers Red Wine Concentrated Anti-Aging Pill

Health and Beauty Net introduces its latest product line, Vinotol, heralded as the "Red Wine Concentrated Anti-Aging Pill." This product contains a potent mixture of Red Wine Provinols and Resveratrol as primary ingredients.

Ivins, UT (PRWEB) July 13, 2005

Introducing Vinotol, heralded as the "Red Wine Concentrated Anti-Aging Pill."

This product contains a potent mixture of Red Wine Provinols and Resveratrol as primary ingredients. Available online through Health and Beauty Net (http://www. healthandbeautynet. com/vinotol. html (http://www. healthandbeautynet. com/vinotol. html)), Vinotol has the benefits of red wine without the alcohol.

Provinols is an alcohol-free red wine extract, polyphenol concentrate that contains at least 95 percent of polyphenols in its composition. After removal of alcohol contained in red wine, Provinols is obtained after a concentration process without any solvents or additives.

The different polyphenol families of Provinols are exactly the same as that of the wine they are extracted from and consequently allow the preservation of beneficial activities of moderate wine consumption for human health.

Polyphenols protect blood vessels by decreasing platelet clumping, causing vaso-relaxation of the arteries and decreasing LDL cholesterol. Some polyphenols, particular those contained in red wine, mostly flavonoids, are believed to be the active compounds responsible for protective effects against cardiovascular diseases.

Resveratrol is the miracle biotical that helps rejuvenate body cells and enhances immune system function. Vinotol was developed by Dr Philippe Moser which maximizes the benefits of resveratrol. Resveratrol is the basic red wine extract in the Vinotol formula, that people in Burgundy, France credit for their extraordinary longevity and seemingly perfect good health.

Resveratrol is the first natural medicinal to have solid evidence showing that it blocks or stops many stages of cancer. Resveratrol also stops the proliferation of cells in blood vessels that narrow the arteries and it also keeps blood cells from sticking together, which is very important for preventing heart attacks.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School demonstrated that resveratrol activates a "longevity gene" in yeast, extending life span by 70%. The sheer volume of positive results suggests that resveratrol is one of the most versatile and effective plant compounds ever discovered. Resveratrol represents a novel solution to many common problems encountered by aging humans.

Health and Beauty Net is wholly dedicated to providing the best possible information, giving people the power to enjoy an excellent quality of life. Most people neglect to make wise lifestyle choices in their early years and pay a severe price in later years. You can't fight old age, but you can control how and in what condition you arrive at your impending destination.

STARLIMS Joins the Fight Against Tuberculosis

A joint effort with Eli Lilly and the CDC in a comprehensive effort to fight spread of MDR-TB.

Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) February 3, 2005

STARLIMS Corporation, the leading global provider of Laboratory Information Management Systems, (LIMS), today unveiled a joint effort with Lilly MDR-TB partnership in the battle against the expanding crisis of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), a virulent mutated type of tuberculosis (TB) that is difficult to treat, and therefore much more likely to spread.

The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership is a uniquely comprehensive initiative with the World Health Organization (WHO), the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and Purdue University to increase the number of trained personnel and drugs available to treat the expanding crisis of MDR-TB.

Public health solutions from STARLIMS are designed as a platform for linking between regional public health partners working under the PHIN framework, HL7 messaging protocols and using LOINC and SNOMED as the common vocabulary for test names and observations. This functionality enables cross site sample transfer and data exchange.

“The CDC and STARLIMS partnership allows us to apply LIMS technology to monitor treatment effectiveness. This is a very critical component of our whole effort to address MDR-TB”, stated. “Dr. Gail Cassell, vice president, scientific affairs and distinguished research scholar for infectious diseases, Eli Lilly and Company.

“STARLIMS was honored to be asked to join the CDC in the Lilly MDR-TB partnership that addresses one of today’s most challenging public health threats” said Isaac Friedman, president & CEO of STARLIMS Corporation. “Our specific role is to provide STARLIMS licenses and know-how necessary to implement an effective MDR-TB monitoring and surveillance infrastructure throughout a network of WHO sponsored treatment centers”.

Roni Deutch - the Tax Lady - Successfully Negotiates Currently Not Collectible Status for Taxpayers Owing The IRS Over $2.2 Million

Roni Deutch - the Tax Lady - Successfully Negotiates Currently Not Collectible Status for Taxpayers Owing The IRS Over $2.2 Million

Television's tax lady Roni Deutch helped cease Internal Revenue Service collections on 41 clients collectively owing the IRS over $2.2 million in back taxes. Through placement on the IRS' Currently Not Collectible status, Ms. Deutch's firm was able to bring instant relief for these families. Currently Not Collectible status may be an appropriate form of resolution for taxpayers that do not qualify for an Offer in Compromise.

North Highlands, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2007

In August 2007, tax attorney Roni Deutch and her law firm, Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation, successfully negotiated Currently Not Collectible status with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of 41 clients who collectively owed $2.2 million in IRS back taxes (http://www. ronideutch. com/ArticleCategory. aspx? id=1).

Currently Not Collectible status (http://www. ronideutch. com/service. aspx? sID=2) is a designation the IRS uses to indicate that it cannot collect from a particular taxpayer at that time. To qualify for the designation, the cost of a taxpayer's monthly expenses must exceed his or her income. Typically, the IRS places a taxpayer's collection account into Currently Not Collectible status only after determining that the taxpayer cannot pay his or her back tax liability in full or does not qualify for a monthly payment plan.

"With the recent turbulence in our national economy, my law firm and I are speaking with hundreds of taxpayers who do not have the ability to pay for their mortgage, electricity, or food - let alone their IRS back tax liability," stated Ms. Deutch. "For many of these taxpayers, Currently Not Collectible status is the way to go. It immediately addresses their IRS back tax liability and protects them from any IRS collection efforts."

"The 41 clients lived all across the country, coming from 17 different states," stated Matt Ritchie, Assistant Managing Attorney of the law firm. "Each client owed on average approximately $56,000.00, with the highest single tax liability being approximately $313,000.00. Most of the clients' cases were successfully concluded within one year, with one being successfully placed into Currently Not Collectible status within three months."

Once the IRS places a taxpayer's account into Currently Not Collectible status, the IRS immediately ceases all collection activity against the taxpayer. Thus, the IRS will no longer issue collection notices, notices of intent to levy, final notices, or notice of levy. In addition, the IRS will immediately stop any active levies on bank accounts or income, or already in place wage garnishments.

"I'd been battling with the IRS's collection department for years, but now I haven't been bothered for months," claims a former client of Ms. Deutch's firm who owed the IRS approximately $76,000. He worked with the firm for eight months and had his IRS back tax account placed into Currently Not Collectible status last month. "I am totally satisfied with the professional service and courteous, efficient personnel at Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation.

The IRS considers Currently Not Collectible status as a temporary form of relief. This is only because the IRS can remove a taxpayer's account from this protected status if it has reason to believe it can now collect from the taxpayer. The IRS makes that determination through reviewing the taxpayer's annually reported income information. However, if there is no change for the better in reported income, the taxpayer's account may remain in Currently Not Collectible status until the tax liabilities expire.

It is also important to note that before the IRS will place any taxpayer's account on Currently Not Collectible status, the IRS reviews the taxpayer's financial situation to determine whether they have an ability to make a monthly payment. This is similar to the review the IRS conducts for other forms of back tax resolution, including the Offer in Compromise (http://www. ronideutch. com/ArticleCategory. aspx? id=2). The IRS will look at the taxpayer's monthly income and compare it to their monthly allowable expenses, which are reasonable expenses a taxpayer must incur every month to provide for the basic health and welfare of their family. If the allowable expenses exceed, or come close to exceeding the amount of the income, only then will the taxpayer qualify for tax relief (http://www. ronideutch. com/ArticleCategory. aspx? id=3) through Currently Not Collectible status.

However, the investigation for Currently Not Collectible status differs from the Offer in Compromise in one important respect: little to no investigation of the taxpayer's equity. That is, unlike the Offer in Compromise program, the value of a taxpayer's assets and property will not automatically disqualify a taxpayer from having his or her back tax liability put into Currently Not Collectible status.

"The IRS considers currently and formerly owned property and its potential liquidated value in calculating the minimum acceptable Offer in Compromise," stated Mr. Ritchie. "Thus, many taxpayers who are promised an Offer in Compromise by dishonest businesses often find that they in fact never qualified due to the value in their home, vehicles, investments, or even items that they no longer even own."

"Of course, they only discover that they never qualified when their Offer in Compromise has been rejected, " added Ms. Deutch. "This occurs after many months of uncertainty, thousands of dollars in fees, persistent IRS collection efforts, and a growing, unresolved back tax liability."

Her firm's former client could not have agreed more. "I had been a client of another tax resolution company for a few years, and they were supposed to be preparing an Offer in Compromise for me. But the collection activity never ceased and the company jerked me around for years. Working with Roni Deutch, on the other hand, was like a dream. They walked me through everything and most importantly they got the job done."

"Luckily, taxpayers can come to my law firm, Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation for a fresh start," stated Ms. Deutch. "They can trust that our office will examine all of the critical facts of their financial situation before pursuing any form of IRS back tax resolution - be it an Offer in Compromise or Currently Not Collectible status."

Offers in Compromise and Currently Not Collectible status are only two of the various forms of IRS back tax resolution Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation offers. The firm has experienced tax attorneys specializing in tax debt relief through a variety of tax relief services including Installment Agreements, Wage Garnishment Releases, Bank Levy Releases, Revenue Officer Assistance, Payroll Tax Representation, Tax Account Review, and Full Pay Service.

“We have many customers who are breast cancer survivors,” said Julie Warnock, co-founder of Bath Petals, “one in particular told us that she 'soaked in (our) bath salts while undergoing chemotherapy and was in a lot of pain and they really helped'. Bath Petals products are designed to promote health and wellness, and to know that someone out there found some relief during their struggle with cancer, by using Bath Petals, really means the world to us.”

October marks the 21st year of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since the program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older (from 25 percent in 1987 to 69 percent in 1998), and breast cancer deaths have declined by 1.6 percent between 1989 and 1995. This is exciting progress, but there are still women who do not take advantage of early detection at all and others who do not get screening mammograms and clinical breast exams at regular intervals. The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month program is dedicated to increasing public knowledge about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Sixteen national public service organizations, professional associations, and government agencies comprise the Board of Sponsors, who work together to ensure that the NBCAM message is heard by thousands of women and their families.

Stop-Smoking Resolutions: Turn High Tech, High Touch

Stop-Smoking Resolutions: Turn High Tech, High Touch

NIH-Funded Habit-Breaking Program Delivered In New Tobacco Cessation Method

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) January 1, 2005

For about half of America’s 50-million smokers, New Year’s resolutions represent an annual ritual in breaking their enslaving habit. This year a growing number of smokers will reject their usual “tough it out” approach with the nicotine patch or going “cold turkey” in favor of gradual, more personalized quit plans that are computer tailored to their exact smoking patterns.

The new system records every cigarette smoked for a week and builds a unique Quit Plan to match individualsÂ’ smoking patterns. Appropriately named SmokeSignals, the device beeps and signals when users should smoke on the computer-derived schedule.

While most smoking cessation treatments focus solely on the addictive nature of nicotine and ignore the habits that keep smokers hooked, the new behavioral system -- released this year -- electronically delivers tailored plans that are based on time-tested behavior modification principles. The new program is designed to ‘coach’ the smoker though the process of quitting. It claims to focus on disrupting the triggers associated with smoking while it gradually weans the smoker off nicotine over a 6-8 week period.

The system combines a sleek handheld case housing one pack of cigarettes, daily “just in time” e-mailed quit tips, and access to personal progress charts at the SmokeSignals. net website.

In April, the SmokeSignals® system was named to the Top 20 Technologies of the Dept. of Health and Human Services in its annual Steps to a Healthier USA recognitions. National Institutes of Health grants funded its development and testing through six clinical trials. In its most recent study, funded by National Cancer Institute, SmokeSignals achieved a 45% quit rate, approximately twice that of most drug-based smoking cessation treatments.

For many would-be quitters this year, the choice is based on pure economics. A typical over-the-counter nicotine replacement treatment costs approximately $300, while the self-managed SmokeSignals program costs $149 on the internet. The productÂ’s website claims to be “twice as effective at half the cost” of most popular stop-smoking methods. 

Customers report that SmokeSignals provides a ‘mindless, effortless’ approach that appeals to many smokers who, the Centers for Disease Control says, make 5-7 unsuccessful attempts before quitting.

“Breaking habits is what it’s about,” claims the product inventor and company president, Vesta Brue. Early pioneers of the method at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston suggested a key reason for their early success with gradual reduction is conditioned associations. “Smokers automatically light up when in familiar situations associated with smoking,” Brue said.

Other explanations that scientists offered for the success of scheduled, gradual reduction is the fact that behavior change takes time. The latest SmokeSignals study showed participants averaged 5½ weeks when allowed to take as long as needed to reach zero.

Preparation for quitting has shown to improve a smoker’s chances of success. ”Quitting is an overwhelming challenge because of the individual’s deeply ingrained habits, developed over many years. If nicotine addiction were the only issue, quit attempts would be more successful than the 2% annual success rate that American smokers have now,” Brue added.

SmokeSignals is sold largely through corporate wellness programs and through military smoking classes. The company claims several of the Fortune 200 as customers, the U. S. Postal system, 5 military bases, and one insurance provider. The Center for Disease Control calculates that a smoker annually costs society $3,391 more than a non-smoker. “That is why employers are our targets. They know they bear most of those costs in healthcare, absenteeism, and productivity loss.” However, with the New Year, the brand’s management expects massive hits on their website, as individual consumers try again, on their own, to break the habit.

About SmokeSignals

SmokeSignals, is a division of Lifetechniques, Inc., The parent company is a privately held incubator that develops and markets innovative handheld electronic products that help users manage difficult health behaviors. Vesta Brue has been the recipient of 11 NIH grants in 5 years. She owns one patent awarded and one pending for SmokeSignals®.
