SiteVision Chosen to Enhance The Georgia Hospital Association’s Georgia 911 Web Portal

[image source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”4633″ align=”left” size=”small” quality=”100″] Roanoke, VA December 6, 2012:  The Georgia Hospital Association (GHA) has chosen SiteVision to develop a specialized nursing home module for the Association’s Emergency Preparedness Program – GHA911. The online website portal is a web browser-based application created to enhance the distribution of critical emergency management information needed by Georgia hospital and healthcare providers, as well as other local and state agencies.

GHA is a non-profit trade association whose mission is to promote the health and welfare of the public through the development of better hospital care for Georgia’s citizens.  The Georgia911 website provides a hub for vital news, information, tools and diversion status for Georgia hospitals and EMS organizations.  SiteVision was earlier chosen to implement a Crisis Care Module. The new module will modify the existing GHA911 application to handle the needs of Nursing Homes.

As threats to human health and national health security are always present, whether by natural, unintentional or intentional means, such threats can rapidly overwhelm public health and healthcare systems.  Under the guidance of US department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and its Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) GHA focuses on preparedness planning and response to strengthen the capabilities of Georgia hospitals and health care systems in public health emergencies and medical disasters. The GHA911 hub is critical to this mission.

The new effort is designed to bring Long-term care and nursing homes into the Georgia 911 portal; thereby, further enhancing the healthcare coalitions between Georgia’s state and local entities and between various public and private health care institutions.

Specifically SiteVision will modify the existing GHA911 application to include Nursing Homes and Nursing Home Management Organizations (NHMO’s) with custom member home pages, navigation specific to nursing homes, and new data points specific to nursing homes such as contact information and key personnel.  New administration features will help manage organization approvals, bed counts, and special needs. Included are Training videos and help documentation. A variety of other enhancements include the ability to update ad hoc and Council Coordinator reports.

December 2012 News & Tips: All You Want For The Holidays, Win 8 and more

Tech Toys For The Holidays

Let’s get unreal.  How ‘bout this floating home?  Really?  The conceptual Trilobis 65 is both a sleek house and a sleek ride as featured in Doornob Design Ideas. It includes an underwater observatory so you can watch Jaws watching you, and worth a look, if only to dream about

On a more reasonable note, however, how about the new Nexus 4 Google Phone?  Oh, I forgot, as of this writing (11/27) it’s sold out.  Bummer.  But when and if it comes back to play, it’s unlocked, very smart and priced to sell at $299 for an 8Gig, GSM, HSPA+.  Operative word unlocked!  It’s fast, capable, and gets great reviews.

Update Google Nexus4!   It was literally just revealed that the Nexus 4 would be back in stock 11/27 at 12:00 PM PST. So depending on when you read this, you can pick one up.

Update 2!  This is getting fun (ridiculous). Goggle’s Nexus Cart broke almost immediately with unprecedented demand!  About 7:30 PM my cart finally went through.  If you happened to order one, hopefully yours did too. So now the wait.  For early orders it was 4 to 5 weeks.  Now I see it’s up to 8 or 9.

Other phones getting huge press are the Samsung Galaxy III and the Galaxy Note 2 and the ever present iPhone.  Unless you have a deep pocket, however, you’ll need to get them on contract, and you already know how that game plays.

There’s also the Sweet little Nexus 7 tablet, available now with 3G+ data.  Great price for a great 7” tablet.  For about $299 you can get a 32G with data.  The other iterations cost less and get strong reviews as well. There is also the new Kindle Fire at a great price, but somewhat  geared to the Amazon ecosystem.

And for you Apple fans, well, there’s the Apple ecosystem you know and love with the new Mini great, but feeling a little rushed and maybe a bit long in the tooth. A new mini is supposed to get the retina display.

According to some, the new 7” (give or take) tablet form factor may just be the sweet spot in tablets going forward.  We’re still waiting for flexible tablets which may not be all that far off (years, but not decades?)
