Amerinet Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization, helped members of its Keystone Alliance save more than $ 250,000 on testing services, while also assisting them to enhance operational efficiency in other areas.

The Amerinet Keystone Alliance saved more than a quarter million dollars last year on reference lab fees for esoteric testing alone but membership is about so much more than great prices. Networking and regular meetings are an ongoing and invaluable resource that has enhanced operational excellence and quality-of-care across the region, said John Romano, manager, laboratory services at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Honesdale, Pa., and board chairman, Amerinet Keystone Alliance.

The Amerinet Keystone Alliance is a group of 11 healthcare systems comprised of 88 locations throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland that function as a virtual Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) to improve supply costs through aggregation. Amerinet fosters regional alliances such as Keystone in order to enhance and maximize the purchasing power of individual contract portfolios via consolidation, but also, to help develop a culture of healthcare excellence by providing opportunities for unprecedented professional peer-collaboration, networking, education and best practice development.

Based on the fact that most of the laboratories in the alliance were using the same national reference lab and receiving the minimum contract discount through their individual organizations, the Amerinet Keystone Alliance laboratory workgroup approached the national lab to determine if there was additional standardization in pricing or services that could be offered for laboratory members of the Keystone Alliance on the most common esoteric tests.

Through the testing laboratorys comprehensive analysis and subsequent negotiations with the Amerinet Alliance team, nine of the eleven organizations received an additional average savings of 10 percent a conglomerate amount of more than $ 250,000 for members. Also, as new members are added to the alliance and volume increases, additional incentives and savings will accumulate.

Beyond the savings benefits, the Keystone Alliance meetings also led to the discovery of additional non-laboratory supply and service solutions. Through regular Alliance meetings attended by leaders and administrators from throughout the region, we have also been able to leverage our professional relationships with other member facilities to help negotiate improved service and exact positive results in non-laboratory areas such as billing, Romano said.

According to Don Smalley-Rader, senior director of Amerinet Alliance solutions in the Eastern Division, Alliances readily demonstrate the true value of Amerinet. Our willingness to help bring regional healthcare providers together illustrates Amerinets ongoing commitment to reduce healthcare costs and improve healthcare quality. Although the networks formed by Amerinet Alliances are virtual, the savings realized, the relationships formed and the collaboration that ensues are as real as can be.

Elizabeth City, NC (PRWEB) June 16, 2012

Eastern North Carolina injury lawyer Danny Glover Jr. says the heightened popularity of the Outer Banks as a vacation destination also brings more risk of car, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents.

We urge everyone who visits or lives in the Outer Banks region to be extra careful as crowds are expected to grow this summer, said Glover of the Eastern North Carolina personal injury lawyers of Teague & Glover, P.A. No one wants to see a summer vacation ruined by an automobile accident.

North Carolinas Outer Banks, stretching from Corolla in Dare County south to Cape Hatteras, recently was named a Top 10 U.S. Beach by Stephen Leatherman, a.k.a. Dr. Beach. Also, in a recent online poll, viewers of The Weather Channel named the Outer Banks Best Surfing Beach.

Among other recent accolades, U.S. News Travel ranked the Outer Banks as the Best Family Beach Vacation in the U.S.,” while NBCs TODAY listed the Cape Hatteras National Seashore as one of the countrys 10 Best Beaches for Families.

Recent and well-deserved accolades for the Outer Banks as a top family vacation spot are sure to result in increased visitor traffic this summer, and a heavy tourist season certainly will have a welcomed economic impact on our area, Glover said.

But, based on our experience as attorneys, we are also mindful that a rise in tourist traffic also comes with a rise in accident risks, the Elizabeth City-based lawyer said. Its unfortunate, but true, that tourists tend to be distracted by new surroundings and vacation activities. This can lead to car accidents that can hurt other motorists, motorcyclists, bicycle riders and pedestrians.

The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau says that local hotel, motel and rental occupancy in 2011 increased from 12.4 million in April to 23 million in May, and it peaked for the summer at 110.2 million in July 2011. The Visitors Bureaus numbers for 2012 so far show an occupancy rate of 13.79 million in April, marking an increase of 10.44 percent from the previous year.

Crowded roads are an increased hazard on their own, but tourists can also be distracted by the sights of the Outer Banks while driving, Glover said. And, unfortunately, vacationers are known to over-indulge in alcohol and get behind the wheel.

Geographic elements, like changing sight lines at bridges, speed limit changes at small towns and unconventional intersections, like at N.C. 12 and U.S. 64 and 158 at Manteo, can confuse visiting drivers and contribute to accidents, too.

Teague & Glover, P.A., investigates car, motorcycle and other vehicle accidents in preparation of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of people injured in wrecks.

Glover said that, in addition to greater numbers of cars and passenger trucks, the Outer Banks are popular with motorcycle riders, bicyclists and pedestrians, all of whom are more vulnerable to injury or death in a collision.

When accidents occur and people are seriously hurt, the injured parties should seek legal advice about their rights and options, Glover added.

Injuries from a car accident actually do more than ruin a summer vacation, he said. They are often costly and long-lasting. So, its important to make sure ones rights are protected.
