SALT LAKE CITY Feb. 1, 2011 $43.3 million $73.5 million

ClearOne has maintained its market leadership by focusing on its core competency: offering high-quality audio products to the marketplace. The company monitors the market closely and integrates trends into its business planning and strategy. Anticipating strong growth in the market in 2010 to 2012, ClearOne has positioned itself to meet technology trends through the acquisition of NetStreams. The late 2009 acquisition enables ClearOne to provide products for distributing audio-only as well as audio and video over IP networks to its customers. Additionally, the company continues to educate the market on the value of using installed audio conferencing endpoints versus standard speakerphone solutions in the group conference room.

LodgeNet Healthcare Releases Enhanced Assigned Education Application to Promote Patient Compliance and Reduce Readmissions

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. Feb. 1, 2011

Gary Kolbeck

LodgeNet Healthcare's Assigned Education includes the ability to test a patient's comprehension with real-time alerts that notify staff of deficiencies. The fully integrated application can also chart viewing and comprehension directly to a patient's medical record. "This app was developed in an effort to ensure patients have the information they need to properly care for themselves post-discharge," said Kolbeck. "The goal is to engage patients to improve outcomes and ultimately reduce readmissions, which benefits both patients and hospitals alike."

Recent healthcare reform is requiring hospitals to deliver more with less, without sacrificing quality. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, have established patient and family engagement as a core component of healthcare transformation. The laws, which will be implemented through rules adopted by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), outline a number of goals for hospitals relating to patient care, which include patient education and patient engagement. The collective goal of these efforts is to transform the patient-caregiver interaction to drive better outcomes while reducing the costs of providing quality care through technology. Realizing this goal will require:

  • Dissemination of information to patients about their care, the

EMC Unifies eGRC Strategy To Help Organizations Transform Their Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance Programs

HOPKINTON, Mass. Feb. 1, 2011

Enabling this transformation, the company also announced the next-generation of its award-winning RSA® Archer® eGRC management platform to support cross functional collaboration across the IT, operations, legal and finance domains. This open platform unifies EMC's eGRC portfolio allowing organizations to adapt their solution requirements, build additional applications and integrate with existing systems without touching a single line of code.
