The Inspection Group Tests Google Glass for Housing Inspections and other Building-Related Data Collection Activities

The Inspection Group Tests Google Glass for Housing Inspections and other Building-Related Data Collection Activities

Matt LaVrar, VP-Inspection Services

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

The Inspection Group, Inc. (TIG), one of the nation’s leading field data collection, analysis, and reporting companies for the Public and Affordable Housing Industry, is field-testing Google Glass through the Google Glass Explorer Program as a reporting and analysis aid for conducting Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) inspections and Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspections of residential properties receiving Federal subsidies in conjunction with its InspectUS™ software for inspections. TIG Glass™, a mini-computer that pairs with Android™ devices via Bluetooth™ technology, is currently beta-testing, with an anticipated national release date, early first quarter of 2015.

Housing programs receiving Federal subsidies include Public Housing properties, Housing Choice Voucher Programs, Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and USDA-Rural Development programs.

Saul Himelstein, President/CEO of TIG, speaking about the Google Glass beta test, said: “The Inspection Group, for over 15 years, has focused on delivering to our clients the very best field data collection, analysis, and reporting services at the lowest possible cost consistent with our quality standards for inspections and reporting. We are mindful that, in many cases, we are evaluating properties supported by taxpayer dollars and that everything we do to ensure safe, decent, and sanitary homes at the lowest possible cost for publicly-assisted housing redounds to the benefit not only of the residents but of the entire community. The best way for us to do that is to promptly adopt new technologies that we believe, after careful evaluation and field testing, can improve our efficiency and productivity. TIG has always done this. TIG developed InspectUS™ inspection software, in partnership with Quick Solutions, Inc. (QSI) as a tablet-based tool. We are now testing Google Glass in cooperation with QSI and Ameresco. TIG views Google Glass as promising another great leap forward in our ability to provide the best, most accurate documentation of inspections in the least possible time when combined with our InspectUS™ Inspection Software for Housing and the Physical Needs Assessment data collection tool iAuditor™ from Ameresco.

Urgent Care 2.0 Releases “The 10 Commandments Of Internet Marketing For Urgent Care” (Part 1 and 2)

Urgent Care 2.0 Releases “The 10 Commandments Of Internet Marketing For Urgent Care” (Part 1 and 2)

The 10 Commandments Of Internet Marketing For Urgent Care

Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) April 09, 2014

1st Commandment of Internet Marketing for Urgent Care – “Thou shalt have no other jobs before me”!

Internet marketing is a jealous master. If full attention is not placed on it, it can be assumed that the plan will die off rather quickly. Many marketers will say that they are keeping up, but secretly they have failed to stay ahead of it. Many staffed marketing directors are given several tasks as a part of their job description with Internet Marketing being one of them. The major mistake is to think that Internet Marketing can be given part time effort with full time benefits. This is a lie. Internet Marketing requires a specific dedication. Here are a few reasons why:

1. The pace of Internet Marketing is light years ahead of every other form of marketing.

The key is to have relevant and timely influence in order to attract new business. That can be quite difficult with an audience that is very fast paced. The slow moving commercials and print media can miss such a target. The internet is where to catch them. By the time the video or print is finished the market may have shifted. The part time Internet Marketers may miss those shifts and not realize it causing them to continue down a path of irrelevancy.

2. The technical knowledge needed is far more demanding to execute efficient Internet Marketing.

Due to the need to have good computer and technical skills, a part time Internet Marketer will never fully master the tools and techniques needed to get the most out of Internet Marketing. The lack of technical skills not only provide limited ROI potential, it can also can cause significant losses. (Example – Not knowing how to properly configure tools such as Google Adwords)

3. The only consistency with Internet Marketing is change.

Part time Internet Marketers are always behind the curve. Things change and they are scrambling to catch up. The joke is told about how a new computer is outdated before you get it in the car to take home, well Internet Marketing is faster than that. It takes a fully focused Internet Marketing team to stay ahead of the changes and develop plans to grow with the changes rather than surviving them.

2nd Commandment of Internet Marketing for Urgent Care – “Thou shalt make thy website easy to find on Google”!

This is the second of a 10 blog series. To get the most out of this series it best to read them from the beginning as they build on each other. Click Here to view all of the blogs in this series. These are the top areas Urgent Care clinics struggle with when it comes to Internet Marketing. It can be a tricky task, but these 10 commandments will help.

This commandment focuses on SEO. (Search Engine Optimization) The reason for the commandment having “Google” instead of “search engines” is that Google has the majority of the market share. They also own YouTube which is the 2nd largest search engine. When it comes to ranking that’s the only one that really matters. Also, if a website is ranking well on Google it is likely to be ranking well on most other major search engines as well.

For any given DMA (Designated Marketing Area) the term “Urgent Care” always gets the highest amount of activity on Google. When the results pull up it will place several options on the first page. In most cases the first to show up are paid ads. Under that we will find the organic positioning that is graded based on SEO. To rank in the top spots there are several factors that are taken into consideration. Here’s a list of some of the key base factors:

1. Domain Age – The older the domain name the better. This shows Google that the business has been established for “x” amount of years and older companies are typically more stable and relevant.

2. Page Rank Authority – Google grades every website for authority and gives them a score between 0 – 10. The higher the number the better. This score is based on other websites that link to the site as a relevant source of information. The key is both volume and quality of these links.

3. Citation Flow – How many web directories of a listing for that business? The more the better. It takes a perfect match of Name, Address and phone number to count as a citation.

4. Trust Flow – This is graded by how many links pointing to the site are from trusted sources. The main purpose of this factor is quality control of links.

5. Indexed Page Count – How many pages are indexed in the search engine? Just because the page is created does not guarantee its acceptance on the search engines. There are a few factors that could keep this from being done correctly. Most of it comes down to how well the website in question has been built and the tools being used to market it. The more pages of quality information the better.

6. Backlinks – This metric is about the total volume of links pointing to the website, where are they coming from and where exactly are they linking to on the website. Some of these rules have changed drastically over the past couple of years, so it’s important to consult with a professional on this matter.

7. Social Relevancy – Google has begun to look to crowd sourcing when it comes to relevancy. How many people are following this company and how are engaged are they with their audience?

These are just 7 of several metrics that need to be reviewed, monitored and modified on a regular basis to rank well for a particular keyword. The main factor though is not only look inward. All of these metrics need to be compared with the competition. The activity level needs to be more then them. The amount of work needed to rank number one will change based on the market, keyword and competition.

Keep up with the next 8 in this series by connecting on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + and Pinterest. They will also be on the website –

Teleradiology Interpretation Services Provider CRRS Listed Among Top Radiology Readers

Teleradiology Interpretation Services Provider CRRS Listed Among Top Radiology Readers

Westbury, NY (PRWEB) May 15, 2014

Last month, the Radiology Business Journal released its first annual report on the radiology interpretation services industry. CRRS, a boutique Westbury-based teleradiology operation, landed on the report’s list of the 20 largest radiology and teleradiology-services providers in the country.

Complete Radiology Reading Services (CRRS), a physician-owned general and subspecialty teleradiology services outfit, offers customized virtual radiology services to hospitals and practices across the country. Off-site radiology coverage can reduce or eliminate the need for healthcare providers to cover a full-time radiologist salary, minimizing providers’ liability insurance costs and allowing radiology practices and hospitals to maximize their returns.

CRRS founder Dr. Allen Rothpearl said that the Journal’s inaugural report is an important first step in measuring the development of the teleradiology segment of the broader radiology market. “We’re very happy to have received recognition from the RBJ – an authority in our industry – and to be grouped with some of the biggest outfits in the country, many of which have a significantly larger staff and have been been operating on a national level for longer than we have,” he said.

Rothpearl said that the honor is underlined by the fact that the report covers both on-site and virtual radiological service providers. “We’re still happy to be a big fish in a small pond, but to be noted for our work in this broader context is definitely gratifying,” he said, adding that the shifting sands of the radiology market are leading some remote providers to reframe their approach. “Even the term ‘teleradiology’ may be obsolete within the next decade.”

While some of the major teleradiology players are working reposition themselves as full-service radiology interpretation providers, many smaller companies are trying to corner specific regions or specialties. “In both cases, we’re starting to see a general shift toward delivering more final interpretations of radiological images,” said Rothpearl. “The traditional role of teleradiology has been to provide supplemental and preliminary interpretation, but market pressure is widening our niche considerably.”

About Complete Radiology Reading Services:

Complete Radiology Reading Services, PLLC (CRRS) was established in 2002 by Dr. Allen Rothpearl, a board-certified radiologist. Dr. Rothpearl recognized that organizations often have a need for radiology services, but may not have access to on-site radiologists for economic or geographical reasons. To meet this need, he formed CRRS.

CRRS has general and subspecialty board-certified radiologists on staff. From the beginning, our physician-owned practice has been servicing primary care clinics, urgent care centers and imaging centers. We have the knowledge and experience to work with fully established medical practices in order to provide imaging services that allow them to expand their services within their communities.

Our radiologists have subspeciality skills in radiology as well as knowledge of the relevant coverage issues for all types of radiology practices. We have focused our efforts on developing our technical skills and knowledge of current state of the art telemedicine systems, computers, networking and internet access. This focus allows us to give our clients easy, efficient and effective access to the specialty and subspecialty expertise in all areas of diagnostic imaging. Interaction between your office and ours is seamless. Reports are delivered promptly, via e-mail or fax, and are dictated in a complete and easy to read format. Emergency cases are called in and preliminary findings can be sent out immediately. Our final reports are finished products, and can be printed and signed on your letterhead, or ours.
