Michael Joseph of Prime Dimensions to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CENTREVILLE, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The digital age is finally bringing clinical and business transformation to healthcare. So how do stakeholders leverage such innovation and potentially disruptive technology to improve patient experience and outcomes, ease provider burden and lower costs?

Michael Joseph is the founder of Prime Dimensions, a healthcare services and solutions firm, specializing in digital health strategy, innovation and technology solutions. Prime Dimensions works with healthcare organizations to redesign, streamline and extend care delivery to achieve the key goals of digital health transformation: improved patient interactions and care coordination; increased provider productivity and efficiency; influencing behavior change for disease management, wellness, prevention and healthy lifestyles. Their cloud-based platform, Visolyr, provides core and enabling technologies to implement and enhance healthcare applications and digital health solutions that confront the most urgent, complex challenges and improve clinical, financial and operational aspects of care delivery.

“Healthcare should be regarded as a human right, but it’s quite obvious that the current business of healthcare delivery, in most instances, does not support that notion,” says Joseph.

According to Joseph, the transition from fee-for-service toward value-based payments is the right direction, but it is causing a seismic shift, as industry stakeholders figure out how to delivery higher quality care at lower costs. “There is an imperative among providers, payers (commercial and public), and employers to focus on wellness and disease prevention,” says Joseph.

Under value-based models, providers are held accountable for exceeding quality measures and patient experience expectations, so they are seeking innovative, cost-effective solutions to consume, integrate, and analyze data across disparate sources, including electronic medical records (EMRs), clinical applications and various hospital information systems.

“Healthcare is extremely complicated today, but we can’t lose sight of delivering high quality and exceptional experiences for the patient,” says Joseph. “As innovation and care delivery models continue to advance at a rapid pace, hospitals will be repurposed for future standards of care, creating pressure on ambulatory and post-acute care settings for keeping patients healthy and stable.” Digital health solutions, including telemedicine, virtual care, and remote patient monitoring, are key to success, especially for patients with chronic conditions.

So how do you actually use that data to improve patient care?

“It starts with interoperability and data liquidity,” explains Joseph. “From a continuity of care perspective, we have all this useful data we need to collect and integrate back into the EMR. With the HL7 FHIR standard and platform services, we can expose this data in very elegant ways within clinical workflows and both provider- and patient-facing applications.” Clinical workflows are critically important to physicians. If they're not getting the data they need at the right time, it's more work and effort, which compromises productivity and efficiency, so it's really about having the right data at the right time at the point-of-care.”

As value-based care models become more pervasive, care delivery will become less episodic and more continuous, compounding the unprecedented proliferation of digital health solutions. Today’s digital health solutions are centered around apps for smartphones and tablets that facilitate and automate more frequent and appropriate interactions to keep patients connected in the ambulatory setting.

As the trend for digital tools is moving toward mobile platforms and cloud-based services, innovators and designers must also consider how to enhance and enrich features and capabilities, so that the tools remain adaptive, flexible, simple and convenient. “We’re just at the dawn of a digital health transformation in which mobile and wearable devices are commonplace, but gaining traction are implantable devices, cyber pills and smart tattoos that can send constant streams of physiological data for near real time analyses,” says Joseph

Along with prominent industry leaders, Joseph announced empathy.health at HIMSS18 to bring empathy into the daily work of healthcare professionals as a strategic and humane imperative. “We are focused on the intersection of innovation, technology and care delivery. As an advocacy organization and virtual community, our success is shaped by a grass roots coalition and a sustainable business model that is currently being developed.” They are seeking to align with healthcare industry stakeholders and gain exposure through healthcare conferences and social media. Feel free to follow @empathy4health on Twitter and engage with them as well; the official hashtag is #Empathy4Health. For more information, they have also been featured in this dotHealth blog post.

“The user-experience for a digital health solution can't be a one-size-fits-all,” says Joseph. “The key to success is knowing how to appropriately engage users, based on necessity, urgency and personal preferences. i.e how, when and where to maximize frequency and depth of engagement so that digital health becomes ubiquitous to the patient experience. Moreover, as genomic data becomes more readily available, personalized treatment plans will become standard practice, ushering in the era of ‘scientific wellness,’ which emphasizes individualized interventions for disease prevention, wellness and healthy lifestyles.”

“We’re looking at the patient as part of the design of these solutions early on. We have tools that can answer the question of what's most relevant to the patient today. Embedding individual patient social data, preferences and values is essential. It’s all about creating exceptional user experiences to ensure user adoption. As industry stakeholders are re-evaluating all aspects of care delivery and the need for care delivery redesign, it’s critical that every interaction with patients, regardless of setting or media, be executed with compassion, empathy, humility and mindfulness.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Michael Joseph in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on November 2nd at 11am EDT.

Author Pops A Question At The Miami Book Fair 2018

Do You Believe Jesus?

Author Pops A Question At The Miami Book Fair 2018

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The books are definitely coming to downtown Miami as the nation’s finest literary festival, the Miami Book Fair International holds its annual celebration. This eight-day literary party will commence on November 11 with over a hundred-thousand readers and writers in attendance. Distinguished authors from the United States and other parts of the globe, as well as book lovers, will be gracing the Fair and its many activities.

Formerly known as “Books by the Bay”, the Miami Book Fair was founded in 1984 by Miami-Dade College. The growth and success of the very first event which took place in the same year were endeavored by Miami-Dade College in cooperation with the Miami-Dade Public Library System, Wolfson Campus President, Eduardo J. Padron, and local independent bookstore owners Mitchell Kaplan of Books & Books and Craig Pollock of BookWorks. The team had reached their success during the 90’s, when the two-day street fair grew steadily and became the largest literary festival in the country, thus acquiring its well-earned name, Miami Book Fair.

AuthorCentrix celebrates its second year as one of the exhibitors at the Fair. The company will be gracing the event with John A. Popken and book entitled: Do You Believe In Jesus? This year at the Fair, he brings to the readers, a reference that challenges the mainstream beliefs and acts of the people who call themselves, believers of God’s words. A chance for one-to-one Author Interview and Book Signing with Popken await everyone!

In the oceans deep, one’s faith always stands. The real question that lies within one’s self is – Do You Believe In Jesus? John A. Popken pops the question as he tries to make the readers understand the mainstream beliefs and acts of those who claim to have muttered and practiced Christianity since their eyes have been opened to the teachings of Christ. Popken has created a reference, rather a theology that challenges main beliefs, most of which are cloaked in tradition. The book reveals the words of Jesus – those He personally taught – and in the writings of the early church fathers. The author encourages every reader to settle the questions that they within themselves, by the new truth exposed in the book, one can definitely hear His heart.

The Festival will bring over hundreds of renowned national and international exhibitors together as it continues to become a model for other fairs across the country. Events and activities include the Street Fair, book signings, live music, workshops, and readings and discussions with notable authors from both, the U.S., and from around the world.

The Miami Book Fair 2018 invites the book lovers to join the annual celebration, as it remains to uphold the cognizance of reading ability and literary arts in the city’s multi-ethnic community, making it the nation’s undisputable, finest literary festival!

What are the Best Dogs for Seniors?

Comfort Keepers Best Dogs for Seniors

Comfort Keepers of Montgomery County, the Main Line and Delaware County.

Serving Montgomery County, the Main Line and Delaware County.

Benefits of Service Dogs

Dogs don't only make for great pets but can sense human emotions and can provide love and affection to those in need. Even petting a dog releases oxytocin, which contributes to happy feelings.”

— Ian Bongaardt

SPRINGFIELD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Elderly adults in care facilities can experience a range of emotions, including depression and loneliness. Luckily, a furry friend may help a senior by providing companionship and assistance with daily activities.

Dogs don't only make for great pets but can sense human emotions and can provide love and affection to those in need. Even petting a dog releases oxytocin, which contributes to happy feelings.

How Do Service Dogs Help Seniors?

Specifically, service dogs can help with the following tasks:

– Picking up dropped objects
– Alerting hearing-impaired seniors to sounds, such as smoke alarms
– Bringing an emergency phone to the owner
– Keeping away strangers
– Waking up the owner
– Turning on lights
– Providing directions to a safe walking path

Benefits For Dementia Patients

Dogs can read and respond to people’s impulses and emotions, making them perfect for dementia patients and their needs. Service dogs can help dementia patients by:

– Carrying a GPS locator in their collar to help families find a lost loved one and in turn, help guide the owner home
– Assisting with daily tasks such as waking up and providing reminders about medications and eating
– Evoking memories and reminiscing
– Helping them stick to a routine
– Improving socialization and offering a conversation starter
– Keeping the dementia patient from walking out of their home alone

Are little dogs better?

In this case, size matters! It's crucial that you pick the best dog to support you during your golden years. Let's admit it; your energy levels are not quite as high when you hit a certain age due to health history. Dogs are known for their, often, high energy levels so choosing a small dog rather than a large one is the way to go…sike! Many small dog breeds have tons of energy! Much like your own health history, it's essential you choose a dog that is in good health as most retirees are on a fixed income and attending to a dog's health can be costly. Your canine's health records can indicate any pre-existing health issues your dog might have, but that does not mean your cute companion cannot develop any problems in the future. When searching for your perfect "pup match," make sure its kid-tolerant and easy going, especially if you expect frequent visits from your grandchildren.

It's highly suggested that you get an adult dog. Owning an older dog means you get to bypass all of those "first" experiences. You are likely to have a better understanding of its health background, personality, and will get to skip the difficulties and costs of raising a puppy. Before resorting to purchasing a dog from a breeder, be sure to visit your local shelters and rescue groups. Mixed breeds are known to have fewer health issues than purebreds. If you are set on getting one of many purebred dogs, make sure you research a reputable breeder, as you could end up with a dog with health problems or poor social skills. (Unknowingly, you could be in support of puppy mills if you do not correctly search your breeder.)

What Breeds Are the Best Choices for Seniors?

French Bulldogs

Martha Stewart's got one so why shouldn't you? Frenchies are known to be small breed with style, an extra spark, and a set disposition. French bulldogs are known to be a brachycephalic breed which often comes packaged with health problems to match. What does this mean? Well, Frenchies are known to have flat faces which affect their respiratory systems. Some even undergo surgery to persevere. By choosing a well-researched breeder, you will not inherit quite as many health issues.

If you end up with a healthy French Bulldog, you are golden! This companion dog is not known to be the most athletic, due to their health problems, but if you feed them right you have a great companion to walk with! If you're a light sleeper, it might take a few days to get used to their snoring problems, but much like people, dogs have flaws! A Frenchie's overall cuteness makes up for this little roadblock.


Who doesn't love a big puff of fur? Poodles have remained a favorite breed for many decades, now. Equip with a great sense of humor (they aren't laughing at you, but with you. Promise!), personable, and very easy to train. Known to be hypoallergenic, Poodles require low-maintenance as long as they get a regular brushing and go to the beauty parlor for a monthly grooming appointment.

Popular among people who love tiny dogs is the Toy Poodle. If you are avid of long walks, a Miniature Poodle might be more fitting, as they are sturdier and have more energy for long, daily walks. Looking to turn your dog in master or tricks? You're in luck with the Poodle breed!


Long live the Schipperke! Really though, this breed has dates back to 1888. Sporting a maintainable coat of hair and adorable round eyes they are always ready for an adventure! This breed is a great choice and down for activities, especially ones that involve water as the Schipperke was bred for to live on ships in Belgium. Just don't forget its life preserver!

Warning, these little cuties are fast! So be sure to keep them on a leash as the Schipperke is a lover of chasing squirrels, and is not afraid to show the little rodents how fast their speed compares.


If you are looking for a less shedding, tiny dog, go with a Maltese. The Maltese is often seen on the show floor with long-flowing hair, but if you keep them clipped short a Maltese is a perfect fit for anyone!

Looking for a lap dog? The Maltese is for you then! Much like like the Havanese, Bolognese, Coton de Tuelar, and Bichon Frise in its general dog family, the Maltese was developed to be lap dogs and companions solely. The Maltese and the previously mentioned related breeds are known to be tuned in and attentive to their humans. Standing as one of the smallest listed kinds, Malteses are by far the most fragile and portable.

Pembroke Welsh Corgis

If your life consists of daily exercise, then the Pembroke Welsh Corgi might be the best fit for you. They are smart, strong-willed, and determined! Did you know Queen Elizabeth, of England, owned a Corgi? That's right! A dog fit to make anyone feel like royalty.

Held back by their little legs, they are not capable of quite as many activities. Unaware of the issue, Corgis are more susceptible to getting hurt. Mainly, they think they are superheroes and can do anything they put their minds to! Having bed and couch stairs handy is vital as their little legs prevent them from jumping as high they think they're capable of. Don't let their small legs fool you though. Corgis are not lightweight, so be sure to keep them on a well-balanced diet.

As some general suggestions, be sure to do your research and determine dog ownership that best fits your lifestyle and circumstances. Everyone ages differently and have different living expectations, so live within your means and standards. Just because you have ailments doesn't mean you shouldn't have a Golden Retriever or German Shepard to take hiking at age 70. They are great dogs to own! If you are an active senior and able to tend to a larger dog, then you should go for it! But most of us will probably be happier with a smaller, less demanding dog to keep us company in the final decades of a dog-loving life.

The Settlement of Space Can Address Challenges on Earth

The Space Settlement Summit is an exclusive, high-level gathering that will look at the ‘best practices’ surrounding the utilization of space, from Earth orbit to the Moon and beyond”

— Bruce Pittman, Senior Vice President, National Space Society

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Some of the finest minds from NASA, private industry and academia will come together at the University of Southern California on November 2-3, 2018 to address critical issues and opportunities in the settlement and utilization of space in the National Space Society’s third Space Settlement Summit, an invitation-only event aimed at leaders in the field.

The movement of humanity into space, both to expand our frontiers and for the improvement of life on Earth, is inevitable, according to Mark Hopkins, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the National Space Society (NSS). “Expanding human presence beyond our planet assures the long-term survival of our species,” Hopkins said. “The utilization of space-based resources, such as solar power, is critical to our future. Our sun produces well over a trillion times the energy currently used on Earth today, a clean, boundless energy source.”

Bruce Pittman, Senior Vice President & Senior Operating Officer of the NSS, said, “The Space Settlement Summit is an exclusive, high-level gathering that will look at the ‘best practices’ surrounding the utilization of space, from Earth orbit to the Moon and beyond. We will dive deep into business cases for resource utilization in space, and how we can best use these resources to expand humanity’s reach throughout the solar system.”

Speakers will include such prominent names in the space community as former NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, former astronaut and Director of Space Operations at SpaceX Garrett Reisman, Dr. Melissa Sampson, Sr. Manager Advanced Systems, Commercial Aerospace and Strategic Technology Ball Aerospace, and George Whitesides, President of Virgin Galactic.

"I found the space settlement summit to be a truly valuable event," said Dr. Daniel Rasky, Chief of the Space Portal Office at NASA’s Ames Research Center. "The broad range of topics, the depth and breadth of expertise and the lively discussion make this a meeting not be missed by anyone interested in space settlement," he said.

Immediately following the Summit, a working group affiliated with the European Space Agency, The Moon Village Association, will host the Moon Village Workshop and Symposium, a discussion about lunar settlements.

The National Space Society is an independent nonprofit educational membership organization dedicated to the creation of a spacefaring civilization. NSS is widely acknowledged as the preeminent citizen's voice on space, with thousands of members and supporters, and over 50 chapters in the United States and around the world. The Society publishes Ad Astra magazine, an award-winning periodical chronicling the most important developments in space.

Study identifies a targetable lung cancer mutation

Study was published in Cancer Cell

FOSTER CITY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Scientists from MedGenome, Bangalore, India in collaboration with oncologists from Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India and scientists at Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, South San Francisco, Calif., USA, report in Cancer Cell the identification of a treatable mutation linked to lung cancer. A mutation in HER2, a gene normally amplified in breast cancer, was found mutated in a familial lung cancer patient. Based on the mutation profile the patient was treated with an approved HER2 inhibitor that normally is used for treating breast cancer. The study also reports several additional actionable activating HER2 mutations in multiple cancers in the same region of HER2 as observed in the lung cancer patient.

MedGenome is the leading DNA based diagnostics provider in India. “Applying advanced next generation sequencing techniques, we were able to identify a mutation that was linked to lung cancer development in a patient from India. It is an important demonstration of the benefits of genomics in the clinical medicine and patient care” said Dr. Ramprasad VL, COO and co-author in the paper. Dr Kumar Prabhash, lead clinician on the study and also a co-author on the paper from the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, immediately ceased on the identification of the mutation and matched the patients with an approved drug that would likely benefit the patient. “I was delighted to see that the patient when matched with the right drug went from being incapacitated to being normal. The CT scans showed her lung tumors had resolved following the treatment and was responsive for a long period of time”

India with its unique population history and over 4,000 population groups provides a unique opportunity for disease gene discovery.

Know the Level of Your brain You Are Living From.

Know and Harness the Difference Between Your Brain and Mind.

Brain education is about actualizing your full emotional health power.

Wisdom education is brain cleaning education.

Emotional health is the panacea for a wise America.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

The main sauce of wisdom is a humble self-image that stems from selflessness. Or one can say wisdom is selflessness that stems from humility.

Wisdom is a function of the self-image, in other words how we answer the question, 'Who am I?' determines the wisdom level.”

— Sajid Khan

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Why is it that mindfulness improves the physical and emotional health but does not make one wise. It is because it tries to educate, relax and change the mind. The mind is the fragrance of the brain. To change a fragrance the plant has to be nurtured. As the mind is a self-conscious fragrance mindfulness has the effect of 'mind-washing' the mind. The mind-washing gradually over many decades seeps into the brain, partially improving the brain.

Emotional-Intelligence/wisdom is the smoke where emotional health is the fire. While regular education is a function of the mind, wisdom is a function of the brain. As mindfulness does not directly address the brain issues, mindfulness takes a long time to create wisdom.

I have a better program to heal the self much faster into wisdom. I have my own version of brainfulness. The mind and brain are lumped together as just the mind when these are two separate entities. I have defined the mind and brain as follows:

1) Mind. The self-image is the face of the mind. Define the mind as the self-image. Measure the self-image to measure the mind. Heal the self-image to heal the mind. The mind works in words.

2) The brain is an organ of the body. The question is; is the brain in the mind/self's full control or is the brain controlling the self? The brain works in emotions.

Wisdom is a function of the self-image, in other words how we answer the question, 'Who am I?' determines the wisdom level.

The brain roughly has four levels as follows: (Any wonder why we have approximately 4 classes of people.)

1) The premature mind/brain. (-2) This level brain creates dictators, murderers, rapists, terrorists etc. A totally selfish self-image.
2) The immature mind/brain. (-1) This level creates corrupt people. A partly selfish self-image.
3) The mature mind/brain. (+1) This level creates egoist people. Truce. A mostly egoistic self-image.
4) The super mature mind/brain. (+2) This is the wisdom level. Peace. A selfless self-image.

Wisdom is created by a +2 self-image and wisdom is a function of a +2 emotionally healthy brain.

Wisdom is a tree and its attributes are the fruit. The quality of the fruit is determined by the quality of the tree. The tree of wisdom is the tree of the self-image. It is the self-image that determines the quality of the attributes/fruit. Our wisdom experts try to create the attributes directly and it is just as hard as it is to create the fruit on its own, without the tree. One needs to not only improve the quality of the tree,(which mindfulness does do) one needs to heal/change the tree from the lower quality level/levels to the highest +2 level.

We are told to be loving, compassionate, caring etc. These are all fruit of the self-image tree. Let's consider the attribute of love:

Love is the king of emotions and just like kings it can be of the following quality:

1) Totally selfish and self-centered. (-2).
2) Mostly self-centered and partly selfish. (-1)
3) Partly selfless and yet egoistic. (+1)
4) Selfless. (+2)

So if a person has one of the lower levels of love and is educated to give up the lower level and acquire the +2 level then it is like trying to educate the self to change from say -2 to +2. It is the same as trying to get the -2 tree to produce +2 fruit. The sure way it can be done is to change/heal the -2 tree/self-image into +2.

Suppose the attributes of wisdom are houses. The question is what is the brick and mortar of these houses. What are these houses made from? The brick and mortar are selflessness and humility. The main sauce of wisdom is a humble self-image that stems from selflessness. Or one can say wisdom is selflessness that stems from humility. Selflessness is the highest quality of the self-image that stems from humility. It is humility that that powers each and every attribute of wisdom into wisdom. So just let's define wisdom as humility. Humility is a fully known quantity. It can be defined and explained clearly. It can be measured and created.

Our Black girls are doing very well as they are raised humble. Our Black boys are struggling only because they are raised macho.

Creating humility means raising our children as selfless as humanly possible. And for those older, we need to heal the self-image from selfishness to selflessness.

Wisdom is a function of the self-image and is determined by humility. The sauce of all the attributes of wisdom is humility. Wisdom is humility.

Here are my press releases regarding humbleness as humbleness itself is covered in confusion.




Here is a perfect example of how the self-image determines wisdom.


Another problem with current wisdom education is not knowing the true nature of the mind and even worse lumping the brain and mind as the single entity of the mind. Wisdom is a function of the brain and the brain happens to be under the radar screen of our experts. So wisdom education tries to teach the mind the half-baked knowledge of wisdom when wisdom education is about healing the brain.

Showing a person to behave good does not change anything. Changing/healing the self-image changes everything. It makes one wise.
