AMVETS Partners with Sync.MD to Revolutionize Veteran Health Records Management

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 12 novembre 2019

AMVETS and Sync.MD announced a strategic partnership formed for the purpose of streamlining health record management for veterans. This follows the implementation of the VA MISSION Act in June 2019 that allows eligible veterans to choose care in the community at VA expense. AMVETS and Sync.MD plan to provide more than 250,000 veterans with expanded personalized health information options through Sync.MD’s patented technology to install and transport complete medical records securely on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. “Sync.MD is thrilled to be entering this relationship with AMVETS,” said Eugene Luskin, Sync.MD CEO. “We have successfully improved care coordination in the private health sector through the use of our technology, and we believe those who served our country also deserve the best health care delivery and coordination possible. We are delighted to be able to help make that happen.”
The first phase of the partnership involves the launch of a pilot to validate how the health service functions of AMVETS and the Sync.MD technology can work together. Both parties expect that the relationship will deliver significant improvements in the health care of veterans in terms of more timely access to medical information, reduced errors and oversights, and the ability to link otherwise incompatible medical records systems.“Health care coordination is critical to ensuring the wellness of veterans who often face a host of overlapping medical issues. This starts with empowering veterans, as well as their spouses and caregivers in many cases, with the ability to consolidate treatment records from multiple sources, so that at any given time a provider can appreciate a patient’s complete medical history,” said AMVETS Chief Advocacy Officer Sherman Gillums. “The partnership between AMVETS and Sync.MD represents a major step forward in the effort to put veterans in greater control of their health care and ultimately their lives.”

Fighting crime: faster EU-wide exchange of non-EU nationals’ criminal records

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 marzo 2019

The new centralised database will improve the exchange of information in regard to criminal records of non-EU nationals, throughout the EU, contributing to the EU’s fight against cross-border crime and terrorism.The new ECRIS Third Country National (ECRIS-TCN) system will:Enable national authorities to quickly establish whether any EU member state holds criminal records on a non-EU citizen,Include data on dual nationals, who possess the nationality of a third country and of an EU country to ensure that individuals cannot hide past convictions simply by virtue of having two passports. The Parliament and Council negotiators have agreed that Europol, Eurojust and the future European Public Prosecutor’s Office will also have access to ECRIS and the Third Country National system, in addition to judges and prosecutors in EU countries.
The new rules have already been agreed upon by the Parliament and Council negotiators in December, but still require the formal approval of the Council. ECRIS was put in place in 2012 to exchange information on criminal convictions in the EU. However, using the current system to check the criminal records of a non-EU citizen is inefficient. According to the European Commission, in 2014 national authorities used less than five percent of information available in other countries’ criminal records in the conviction cases of third country nationals.

Deal on faster exchange of non-EU nationals’ criminal records

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 13 dicembre 2018

Plans to create an EU database to enable EU countries to exchange non-EU citizens’ criminal records faster, were informally agreed with Council negotiators on Tuesday.Currently, national authorities often rely solely on data on non-EU nationals’ convictions available from their own national criminal record systems. The new centralised database on third country nationals will improve the exchange of information on non-EU nationals’ criminal records throughout the EU and contribute to the EU-wide fight against cross-border crime and terrorismThe database will complement the European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS), which EU countries already use to exchange information on EU citizens’ previous convictions.The new ECRIS Third Country National (ECRIS-TCN) system, will:
enable national authorities to establish quickly whether any EU member state holds criminal records on a non-EU citizen,
contain data such as names, addresses, fingerprints and facial images (which, however, may only be used to confirm the identity of a non-EU national who has been identified based on other data), and
Parliament and Council negotiators agreed that in addition to judges and prosecutors in EU countries, Europol, Eurojust and the future European Public Prosecutor’s Office will also have access to ECRIS and the Third Country National system.
The ECRIS-TCN system will also include data on dual nationals who possess the nationality of a third country and of an EU country to ensure that the system is completely reliable and that individuals cannot deliberately hide past convictions simply by having two passports. The fingerprints of dual nationals can only be included in the system if they have been collected in accordance with national law during a criminal proceeding. Furthermore, MEPs managed to ensure that the benefits of including dual nationals’ information in the ECRIS-TCN will be assessed in the near future.
