Jaa

Brightree, a leading provider of cloud-based software helping out-of-hospital providers improve business performance and patient outcomes, today announced it has acquired privately held mobile delivery and cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider Apacheta Corporation, further expanding the SaaS portfolio of Brightree’s owner, ResMed.

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Apacheta offers mobile applications that empower companies to automate and streamline business processes in route sales, field marketing, pick-up and delivery, transportation and field services.

Apacheta and its Media, PA-based employees will join Brightree, whose platform it has been integrated with since 2015. A secure mobile delivery module for ordering and tracking medical equipment was the number one feature request of HMEs in a recent customer satisfaction survey. Brightree will guide the further innovation of Apacheta’s solution and help increase adoption among Brightree customers.

“Apacheta solves many of the business challenges HMEs face in managing deliveries, particularly eliminating missing, lost or incomplete delivery information,” said Brightree CEO Matt Mellott. “It has already helped Brightree customers save significant time and money, and we look forward to investing in its continued innovation and scalability.”

“We’re thrilled to become part of a healthcare leader that shares our mission: leveraging technology to digitally transform field service management and delivery functions providing quantifiable business efficiencies, better customer care, and improved visibility to logistics practices,” said Apacheta CEO Gregg Timmons.

“The HME business is becoming more and more challenging, and like Apacheta, Brightree offers software solutions that eliminate complexity in order to increase productivity,” Timmons said. “The entire Apacheta team and I look forward to becoming part of the Brightree/ResMed family.”

Apacheta is Brightree’s third acquisition in the past 18 months, following Conduit Technology, which enhances HMEs’ custom forms and workflow solutions, and AllCall Connect, providing live call center services. Both of these additions strengthen Brightree’s offerings to HMEs, while ResMed evaluates where else they may be integrated within its larger SaaS ecosystem.

“Adding a reliable market-tested mobile delivery platform to ResMed’s SaaS portfolio helps our customers work more seamlessly and provide a better experience for their patients,” said ResMed SaaS President Raj Sodhi. “In addition to driving further innovation of this platform, we will explore bringing this solution to other care settings and platforms that would benefit by having a mobile delivery solution.”

Knopp Biosciences Expands Research Collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s to Characterize Effect of Dexpramipexole in Inflammatory Diseases16.1.2019 14:00Tiedote

Knopp Biosciences LLC, a privately held drug discovery and development company focused on delivering breakthrough treatments for inflammatory and neurological diseases with a high unmet need, today announced the expansion of its research collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to further elucidate the eosinophil-depleting mechanism of action of Knopp’s lead investigational drug, dexpramipexole. Eosinophils are white-blood cells that play a central role in several debilitating conditions, including asthma, hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES), and other inflammatory diseases.

NexPlayer Supporting Low Latency HLS & DASH Streaming on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs16.1.2019 12:52Tiedote

As part of their mission to provide the most advanced feature set, NexPlayer has added low latency functionality to its media players. NexPlayer allows you to enable low latency streaming with HLS and DASH on all devices, solving the latency problem and improving the OTT viewing experience. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190116005301/en/ Latency is a serious issue for streaming services, as live playback with HLS and DASH typically falls 30 seconds to a minute behind the live event. With linear TV only 6 seconds behind, OTT viewers find out what happens via social media or text before seeing it firsthand. Now with the support of NexPlayer, media organizations can achieve sub-6 second latency on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs. In the past, the only ways to achieve low latency were through proprietary end-to-end protocols or by foregoing ABR support. Both methods have considerable drawbacks. Propr
