MedPro Partners With PCIHIPAA To Offer Compliance Services to Healthcare Providers

Offering Addresses A Key Challenge for Many Organizations Seeking To Safeguard Patient Information (PHI)

Our partnership adds to our waste management solution and aligns with our strategy to save healthcare providers time and money”

— George Shanine, CEO MedPro

NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MedPro, a leader in waste management disposal services, is pleased to announce its new partnership with PCIHIPAA, a leading Payments Card Industry (PCI) and HIPAA compliance provider. The partnership is focused on protecting MedPro clients from the onslaught of HIPAA violations which include ransomware attacks and data breaches impacting medical and dental practices throughout the United States.

According to the site HHS.gov (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), over 870,000 patient records were breached just in the month of July 2018. Protected Health Information (PHI) continues to be under attack as hackers strive to monetize the stolen data on the dark web. The types of HIPAA violations most often identified are:

1. Impermissible uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI)
2. Lack of technology safeguards of PHI
3. Lack of adequate contingency planning in case of a data breach or ransomware attack
4. Lack of administrative safeguards of PHI
5. Lack of a mandatory HIPAA risk assessment
6. Lack of executed Business Associate Agreements
7. Lack of employee training and updated policies and procedures

“At MedPro we are building a center of excellence for all healthcare providers. We vetted many HIPAA compliance providers and believe PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program is the right program to add to our current product suite. Our partnership adds to our waste management solution and aligns with our strategy to save healthcare providers time and money, said George Shanine, CEO, MedPro. “We are looking forward to working with PCIHIPAA and providing our clients with an added layer of savings, confidence, and peace of mind."

PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program provides a number of key features and benefits that enable busy practices and office managers to easily comply with HIPAA requirements. The OfficeSafe Compliance Program includes:

• HIPAA Policies and Procedures – a guided navigation to easily create, update, and record your HIPAA Policies and Procedures

• PCI and HIPAA Data Breach, Non-Compliance, Privacy, Network Security and Ransom Insurance Coverage
• Identity Restoration for doctors and their families
• Encrypted Data Backup and E-mail Services
• Annual PCI Compliance and Certification (Annual SAQ / Quarterly IP Scans)

“We are excited about our partnership with MedPro. They have saved the healthcare industry millions of dollars on waste management services, and continue to push the envelope with helping healthcare providers. PCIHIPAA aligns closely with MedPro because we also help practices save time and money on Payment Card Industry and HIPAA compliance.” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA. “We are changing lives by removing the uncertainties surrounding compliance and patient data privacy and security issues. We find that many practices don't have the resources to navigate HIPAA law, and are unaware of even their most common vulnerabilities.”

CleanBC climate plan boosts British Columbia’s signal for renewable fuel use and production

Advanced Biofuels Canada lauds the Government of British Columbia for its new climate plan, with critical role for low-carbon renewable fuels

Today’s announcement builds on a decade of smart, hard work by provincial staff and political leaders. An increased LCFS is a vote of confidence in the capacity of biofuels to deliver.””

— Ian Thomson

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Government of British Columbia released on December 5th its CleanBC climate plan, which charts a path to 19 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2030—an ambitious yet achievable set of measures that put low-carbon biofuels at the forefront of the Province’s climate efforts. It also puts BC firmly in a leadership role on the national stage.

Highlights from the CleanBC plan include:
• Strengthening the low carbon fuel standard to a 20% reduction in fuel carbon intensity by 2030
• Supporting ramp up of new renewable fuel production to 650 million litres by 2030
• Zero-Emission Vehicles to make up 10% of new light duty vehicle sales in 2025, 30% in 2030, and 100% in 2040
• 15% minimum renewable content in industrial natural gas consumption, and cleaner industrial operations through electrification, CO2 storage, and direct air capture
• Improved energy efficiency in buildings

The 19 million tonnes of reductions in the CleanBC plan represent approximately 75% of the Province’s overall emissions reduction goal in 2030. The remaining 25% of the reduction measures will be determined over the next 18 to 24 months and will include new clean energy options, waste management, and reducing emissions in forestry, land use and agriculture. The CleanBC plan suggests that by 2030, over 40% of diesel and 10% of gasoline could come from biofuels.

Advanced Biofuels Canada released a statement today by President Ian Thomson. “CleanBC is sending an excellent signal at an opportune time. Today’s announcement builds on a decade of smart, hard work by provincial staff and political leaders. The convergence in BC of sustainable feedstocks and robust technologies can spur new production of low-carbon biofuels and create sustainable jobs across the province, with existing biofuel options continuing to provide a foundation for new fuels. BC’s renewable and low carbon fuel regulation has already reduced emissions by 6.37 million tonnes between 2010 and 2016. An increased LCFS is a vote of confidence in the capacity of biofuels to deliver.”

Advanced Biofuels Canada/ Biocarburants avancés Canada is the national voice for producers, distributors, and technology developers of advanced biofuels. Our members are the global leaders in commercial biofuel production and technology development, with rapidly expanding investments in British Columbia to meet new low carbon fuel demand.

Government of Ontario climate plan signals expanded use of low carbon biofuels

Advanced Biofuels Canada applauds the Government of Ontario for stronger renewable fuel requirements and new incentives to expand use of low carbon biofuels.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On November 29th, the Government of Ontario released its Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan with specific climate action initiatives that will require increased use of renewable and low carbon fuels.

Key elements of the climate plan:

1. Renewable content (e.g. ethanol) in gasoline will increase to 15% as early as 2025 under the Greener Gasoline regulation
2. Increased use of renewable natural gas and other lower carbon fuels will be encouraged
3. Large emitters will be subject to emission performance standards
4. A Carbon Trust Fund ($350M) and Ontario Reverse Auction Fund ($50M) will provide financial assistance for emissions reduction initiatives

The plan builds on the amended Ethanol in Gasoline and Greener Diesel regulations that come into effect January 1, 2020.

“With this plan, Ontario continues to address it largest single greenhouse gas emissions source: transportation. Today’s vehicles are using lower carbon, made-in-Ontario biofuels that can reduce these emissions further to meet Ontario’s 2030 targets,” said Ian Thomson, President of Advanced Biofuels Canada. “Building on federal action on liquid fuels, the province is signaling new demand for low carbon advanced biofuels. Sustainable agricultural and forestry crops and residues can provide these biofuels, as can urban and industrial waste streams.”

Advanced biofuels can reduce GHG reductions by up to 115% below fossil fuels.

Thomson concluded, “We applaud the new initiatives to expand use of advanced biofuels in Ontario and look forward to working closely with the Province to implement the Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan measures. Incenting private sector innovation, with a welcome mat to low carbon fuel producers, will be critical to meeting the our climate goals.”

Advanced Biofuels Canada/ Biocarburants avancés Canada is the national voice for producers, distributors, and technology developers of advanced biofuels. ABFC promotes the production and use of low carbon advanced biofuels in Canada, which our members supply across North America and globally. These companies have invested in processing and supply chain operations in Ontario and are actively bringing to market the next generation of low carbon biofuels. Since 2005, ABFC has provided provincial and federal leadership on sound biofuels policies to expand clean energy options, achieve measurable climate action results, and stimulate new investments and clean growth.

NEW HEAVY DUTY COMPRESSED AIR BLOW GUN FOR THE HARD BLOW OFF APPLICATIONS WITH 1/2" OUTLET

Ergonometric, Powerful, Energy Efficient and Safe for Heavy Applications

Most compressed air guns have 1/4 or smaller outlets. The Nex Flow Heavy Duty X-Stream Air Gun uses a powerful, quiet, energy saving 1/2" safety air nozzle

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, CANADA, November 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The "NEW" Nex Flow Heavy Duty Compressed Air Safety Gun is ideal for those applications where a common, smaller air gun just does not have the power. Up to seven (7) times more powerful than traditional air guns.

It comes complete with a powerful, air saving and noise reducing 1/2" nozzle that is able to produce a force of almost 5 pounds for those difficult applications that a smaller air gun will simple not do.

Ergonometric design for comfortable handling in a normally hectic and not so comfortable environment. The Heavy Duty Compressed Air Safety Gun comes with an engineered air nozzle with safety in mind. Meets OSHA standards for dead end pressure to be under 30 PSIG. The special air nozzle converts pressure normally lost as pressure drop and noise to create a powerful air blast that uses less energy and reduces exhaust noise significantly.

Flow Heavy Duty Compressed Air Safety Gun is powerful, comfortable, more quiet, and safe!

Innovative Product Will Improve Waste Diversion, Composting and Recycling Practices

Telescopic Rails and Legs allow unit to accept any size bag in the market

Collecting leaves and branches with the green bag or recyclables with the blue mesh bag

Customize with your favourite Team Logo of Company Name

Excellent for collecting debris and recyclables

Great for drying your towels of holding your drinks

Use Kwik Bagit around the Pool or at the Beach

Federal & Provincial Environment Minister to meet at CCME Friday November 23rd, 2018. Innovative Saskatchewan Invention should be considered to reduce plastic.

Using Poly/Cloth Bags will Reduce our Dependancy on Single-Use Plastic Bags which are so terrible for Landfills across North America. The Kwik BagIt Eco/System is "Making the Task Easier"”

— Harold Sokyrka

SSKATOON, SK CANADA, CANADA, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada

Innovative Method for the Improvement of Waste Diversion, Composting, and Plastic Recycling.

As Canada prepares for the meeting of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) on Ottawa on November 23, president and inventor Harold Sokyrka (President of Kwik Bagit Products International Inc.) launches the Kwik Bagit Eco/System to the world market.

As municipalities all over the world struggle with trying to improve Waste Diversion and Recycling, they are now burdened even further due to China's tough policy of now refusing any more recyclable material from North America. As a result, Recycling Depots are scrambling to find alternative buyers and measures to deal with the stockpiling of recyclable materials much of which is now ending up in the landfills because they have no place to sell it.

Sokyrka states that “Proper recycling starts AT THE SOURCE – in the HOME and by using cloth bags we will reduce the amount of unneeded and unwanted oil-based, oxo-degradable plastic bags from entering the municipal landfills.” He goes on to say, "Our USE ONCE – and DISCARD ATTITUDE needs to change". Sokyrka has also developed a Community Based Seminar called "DIVERT-COMPOST-RECYCLE and REUSE which is a 2-day seminar designed to educate the public about proper waste diversion techniques. Community Associations will also have the opportunity to be involved in a unique fundraising approach that will help them to improve their local parks and facilities since many municipalities have cut the finding to these groups. They will participate in distributing complimentary Compost Bags and How To Guide that is sponsored by local likeminded Stakeholders to residents in their communities to improve our Waste Diversion Practices.

After 2 years of R&D, this Patent Pending Utility Device is ready for the worldwide marketplace. The easy to use System encourages the use of machine washable Poly/Cloth Bags to reduce the amount of plastic bags entering municipal landfills and recycling depots. The reusable bags will save consumers from buying bags and that will also save the environment by reducing the amount of unnecessary single-use, oil-based plastic bags that are entering our landfills.

The “Kwik-Bag-It-Eco-System” is an Eco-Friendly Portable Utility Device that uses Telescopic Rails and Legs that can be reconfigured to fit any debris collecting bags in the marketplace. Primarily used for the collection of compostable organic waste and debris and for the storage of refundable recyclables.

The System also uses exclusive Retainer Clips that hold the bags to the rails of the unit which makes it so easy to fill and unload the bags. Sokyrka says "You no longer need a third arm or second person to hold the bag open while it is being filled. And once the bag is full – you simply release the clips and the bag falls to the ground and is tied. It then it can be unloaded into the compost or recycling depot. If it requires a cleaning, a simple spray with water will permit the bag to be used hundreds of times.

Another feature of the Kwik Bagit Eco/System is the portable roll-up tabletop, making it an excellent device to take camping, fishing or to a picnic or the beach where the unit not only collects your debris but it can be used to dry your towels and have a place to set your drinks on as well. This Unit is called the "Outback" because it can easily be strapped to a backpack or put into the trunk of your vehicle.

There is also a Commercial Pro Model that is used in the construction industry and is excellent for disaster relief clean up saving companies. The bag on this unit can hold up to 50 lbs. of debris and can be used hundreds of times. Food Truck operators and Street Vending Cars will see a great benefit because the unit not only acts as a portable debris/recycling collector, but it also has a unique new advertising medium, to display their company logo or events.

And, as more and more municipalities begin to realize that OIL BASED, OXO-DEGRADABLE PLASTICS BAGS are bad for our environment, aside from having an outright ban on the use of plastic bags – the simple solution is to switch to using Poly/Cloth Bags. "This could be the beginning of a new approach to smarter recycling practices so that we can improve our ways of recycling – to strive for a “GREENER PLANET” and to help our Fragile Environment"!

Image One USA Offers Military Veterans Seeking to Own a Business a Time-Tested, Low-Cost Opportunity

Gathering at Image One’s home office

Image One franchise includes attractive discounts for veterans and a supportive team who have walked the same path

The entire Image One team has been so supportive. I couldn’t imagine ever going somewhere else or doing something different with my life.”

— Maria Bogacki, Image One Nasvhille owner and military veteran

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL, USA, November 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Offering one of the most attractive incentive programs for military veterans seeking to purchase a franchise, Image One USA announces plans to bring on additional veteran franchise owners in 2019 as part of its growth strategy.

The franchise is actively recruiting military veterans interested in owning a rewarding, always-in-need business model. Several veterans are part of the Image One family, either as franchise owners or support team members.

“We are growing this brand nationally and need people who are passionate, dedicated and ready to be a part of our team,” said Image One President and Co-Founder Tim Conn. “Military veterans inspire us and perform well in our system. We’re prepared to invest our resources into building the franchise with the right veteran owner-operators.”

–What military veterans receive when they join

Veterans joining the Image One franchise system choose the program that is right for them: They can either receive 20 percent off the franchise fee, $5,000 per month in guaranteed business for a year, or a no-interest loan to finance their franchise. Recently, Ash Gawande of Dallas took advantage of Image One’s military program to open his franchise. He is an Air Force military veteran who then spent years working in the business world in telecommunications and project management before launching his own business this year as an Image One franchisee.

After doing plenty of research across the franchise space, Gawande chose Image One.

“Image One stood out from all the rest — they treated me like family and guided me through every step of the discovery process,” Gawande said. “As I dug into their system and had conversations with them, I realized this was the perfect fit for me. It’s a smaller upfront investment that offers a quicker return on investment compared to other franchises.”

Maria Bogacki is another veteran franchise owner who runs an Image One business in Nashville. She feels comradery from her Image One family that fuels her every day.

“The entire Image One team has been so supportive,” Bogacki said. “I couldn’t imagine ever going somewhere else or doing something different with my life.”

And in the franchise’s home office, Image One relies on two longstanding team members who spent time serving the country: Ron DuBrock, Image One’s sales manager, and Jerry Jackson, the company’s marketing manager.

–Image One – On a National Growth Path

Franchising since 2011 and with a corporate headquarters in the Chicago suburbs, Image One launched a new franchise affiliate program in 2015 to further expand the franchise nationwide. Since then, the franchise has added owners in regions across the country, including in Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Myers, Nashville and Orlando.

Image One provides the necessary training, tools and support to help franchise affiliates build their business, including teaching franchisees the latest cleaning techniques and empowering them with insights on best-in-class equipment and technology. Ongoing training is delivered both at Image One’s corporate headquarters and onsite at existing client locations to ensure that franchisees continue to grow their own businesses.

Image One’s goal is to help people become their own boss. With a starting investment among the lowest in the entire franchise industry, Image One owners can live out their business ownership dreams as an experienced group of commercial cleaning executives guide them every step of the way.

–Where to Begin

The cost to open an Image One franchise ranges from $15,000 to $50,000 depending on down payment, along with equipment purchased and other factors. And, as noted, veterans can choose a 20 percent discount off the franchise fee, no-interest financing or initial guaranteed business as an added benefit. Startup costs are among the most affordable in the franchise industry compared to other service opportunities.

Opportunities are available in areas across the United States. Visit http://imageoneusa.com and fill out the franchise inquiry form or call 800-223-1985 for more information.

###
