Procentive EHR Supports Artists with Mental Illness

Hudson, WI (PRWEB) August 10, 2014

Today, Procentive, an electronic health records (EHR) company specializing in practice management software for behavioral health, mental health and chemical dependency providers, announces a unique partnership with People Incorporateds Artability program to raise awareness and support artists with mental illness. Procentive will display artwork from the program to mental health providers around the country thousands of times daily, bringing beauty to their desktops while raising awareness for an important program helping destigmatize mental illness.

Everyday, thousands of mental health providers rely on Procentive to manage their client records, explains Procentive CEO, Randy Zimmerman. Now, in partnership with the Artability program, we will feature rotating artwork from artists with mental illness every time they log in. Therapists will have instant access to information about the artist and the Artability program which is open to any adult (18+) with a mental health diagnosis. By making this artwork a part of the daily lives of mental health providers across the country, we will be raising awareness and creating literally millions of impressions a year for an important program that is making a difference in the lives of artists with mental illness.

The Artability program offers adult artists who have a mental health diagnosis a safe and supportive environment where they can explore art, develop their artistic skills and build confidence as individuals and as artists in the community, notes Katie Burns, Artability Program Coordinator. Our fine arts workshops are led by accomplished artists who have experience instructing fine arts classes. The series of workshops includes painting in oils, acrylics and watercolors, drawing in charcoal or oil pastels, writing in poetry, fiction and non-fiction writing, and more. Workshops are held throughout the year, and culminate in an annual fall art show and sale which connects approximately 100 artists with the greater community. Participating in the arts can be very therapeutic, and the art often represents the voice of the artists themselves. We hope that through this partnership with Procentive, we will be able to reach more mental health service providers who can share the Artability program with clients who could benefit from participating.

Send Me On Vacation Announces Jetting Pink Across America: A Healing Journey, Awarding Breast Cancer Survivors a Dream Vacation

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) August 19, 2014

Send Me On Vacation is a 501 (c)(3) charity with the mission of sending breast cancer survivors on vacations to rejuvenate their body, mind and spirit and aid in coping with the emotional and physical tolls of cancer treatment. This upcoming October, the SMOV team will be flying across the country thanks to the generous contribution that JetBlue Airlines has made to Send Me On Vacation. JetBlue was delighted to provide flights to help breast cancer survivors go on their dream vacations. As flying is our core business, this was a perfect fit for us. We align our in-kind support with our crewmembers passions. One of our pilots is a volunteer for the organization and was instrumental in developing this partnership, said Icema Gibbs, director corporate social responsibility, JetBlue Airways. We are excited to support worthy causes such as Send Me on Vacation.

Volunteers like JetBlue pilot Alan Altman encourage both corporate and community involvement thus enabling us to send breast cancer survivors from across the country on a well-deserved vacation, says Cathy Backus, the charitys founder. The vacation, following treatments, is used as a catalyst in supporting the emotional healing aspect of recovering from breast cancer.

Send Me On Vacation has selected six members from the organization to jet from San Francisco to New York, from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles and end the tour in Las Vegas, Nevada. In each of the five cities, a walk will be held in honor of local breast cancer survivors who have endured the physical and emotional effects that breast cancer has had on their lives. Send Me On Vacation emphasizes the need for increased awareness of the emotional struggles survivors face in battling cancer and continues to develop programs to address the aftermath.

The entire journey will be chronicled on both the Send Me On Vacation website and Facebook page. At each of the stops, multiple vacations will be awarded to numerous breast cancer survivors during a fundraising event held in each city. In total, over 12 women from six cities will be given the chance to enjoy a dream vacation after surviving treatment for breast cancer.

The group has gained national media exposure on KTLA news and video in Los Angeles County, radio, TV and celebrity talk shows in order to bring light to their journey to raise awareness about breast cancer and the struggles that many breast cancer survivors face when the physical treatment has been completed and the emotional healing begins.

Send Me On Vacation is excited for this multi-city journey to raise awareness for the post-treatment needs of breast cancer survivors and to raise funds to send incredibly deserving women on vacations to heal their mind, body and spirit. For more information about all of the events that SMOV has planned for breast cancer awareness month, contact the charity today at or call Cathy Backus at 702-277-3812.

Mental Wellness Milestone: 100,000 Patients Tested with GeneSight to Support Medication Selection

Mason, OH (PRWEB) August 18, 2014

Assurex Health, a leading personalized medicine company, announced that 100,000 mental health and chronic pain patients across North America have now been tested with GeneSight products that help clinicians select medications based on patients individual genetic profile.

This means that 100,000 people were helped on the road to mental wellness with GeneSight as an integral part of informing their treatment decisions, said Virginia C. Drosos, CEO of Assurex Health. We hope to bring the value of GeneSight to many more clinicians and patients who are working together to manage their mental health, chronic pain, and ADHD.

GeneSight helps health care providers make mental health and chronic pain treatment decisions based on a patients unique genetic makeup. Administered using a simple cheek swab, GeneSight is becoming a preferred step in helping clinicians treat patients with conditions such as depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, chronic pain, and ADHD.

Many clinicians are making GeneSight the standard of care in their practices, said Joel Winner, M.D., Medical Director of Assurex Health and a practicing psychiatrist in Colorado. GeneSight is extremely beneficial in helping to identify genetically appropriate medications for patients. It gives us more precise information, so we can more quickly help patients get better.

Rapid Growth Expected to Continue

The number of patients tested using GeneSight has doubled since 2012, and is on pace to double again in 2014. Assurex Health expects up to one million patients could be tested by 2018.

Founded in 2006, Assurex Health has grown rapidly to service clinicians and patients throughout the U.S. and has recently expanded internationally through a partnership with Canadas Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Today, more than 8,500 clinicians in private practice, health systems, long-term care facilities and other care sites are registered to offer GeneSight.

Assurex Health recently secured $ 32 million in additional financing from GE Capital, Silicon Valley Bank, Sequoia Capital, Claremont Creek Ventures, Mayo Clinic, Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center, CincyTech and Allos Ventures, allowing it to enhance its focus on leading-edge science and delivering clinically proven results and product enhancements.

Assurex Health also recently introduced significantly enhanced versions of its GeneSight Psychotropic and GeneSight Analgesic products and added new commercial health insurance networks to increase patients coverage. In addition, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in June approved use of GeneSight at VA medical centers, the largest health system in the United States, joining Medicare in reimbursing GeneSight.
