Valdosta, GA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012

Azalea Health Innovations (AHI), Inc. recently provided the Lowndes County Partnership for Healths (LCPFH) Partnership Health Center with their Azalea EHR system as well as donated full training and implementation services from their experienced client relations team.

The two organizations joined forces after the LCPFHs Partnership Health Center, a free primary healthcare facility staffed by healthcare volunteers who offer their time to serve the healthcare needs of the working uninsured in Lowndes County, made the decision to automate and streamline the workflow of their practice. The LCPFH was looking for an electronic health records system (EHR) which would be usable by multiple volunteers and found that AHIs Azalea EHR was a natural fit. An EHR is a collection of electronic health information about individual patients or populations that may include a range of data, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status, laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal stats like age and weight, and billing information.

Part of our corporate culture is to give back to the community and help non-profit organizations. This partnership fits that profile. The LCPFH is a valuable organization with volunteers who truly care about the health of their community. Providers are working full days in their own practice before volunteering at the Partnership Health Center. We are proud to call them a partner and thrilled to provide them with Azalea EHR, says Baha Zeidan, CEO of AHI.

AHIs client relations team have been diligently working with and training the LCPFH staff and volunteers for the past month to prepare them for their scheduled launch. Upon launch, the Partnership Health Center will receive a host of benefits afforded by Azalea EHR. Advantages include: access to electronic prescribing, a multiple provider and location scheduler, office workflow management feature, doctor specific internal templates and custom fields, a Meaningful Use dashboard, a secure messaging and tasking system as well the ability to give their patients access to their personal medical records through the fully integrated patient health records portal, Azalea PHR.

John Sparks, Executive Director of LCPFH says, AHI has worked with us on customizing the Azalea EHR to cater to our specific needs. As we are based on a non-profit platform, we require information that the average healthcare provider does not in order to receive grants and other funding; AHI understands that and has been very flexible throughout this process.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 18, 2007 -

Most people would agree that there is no worse feeling than needing something and not being able to find it. The problem is compounded when the “something you need to find” are documents that detail financial holdings, insurance policies and other important documents belonging to a loved one.

“If, like most people, you keep copies of your will, savings bonds and keepsakes in a lock box or safety deposit box, you’re doing OK,” says financial professional Bill Spalding. “But, a safety deposit box can be made better if it’s managed online and includes account aggregation.”

Account aggregation is a method that involves compiling information from different accounts, which may include bank accounts, credit card accounts, investment accounts, and other consumer or business accounts, into a single place. One of the best methods uses something called “screen scraping” where a user provides the requisite account-access information for an automated system to gather and compile the information into a single page. Usually this aggregated account information resides in a web-based application. With just a few keystrokes, the account holder can log in to a password protected site and view all their information online.

While such services are primarily designed to aggregate financial information, they sometimes also display other things such as the contents of e-mail boxes and news headlines.

Account aggregation programs vary in content and sophistication. Spalding prefers a program known as “Wealth Check” because of its ability to store critical documents as well as provide a running tally of the client’s net worth on a daily basis.

According to Spalding, many of the programs and websites available can get the job done, but he likes Wealth Check because it pulls together all assets, including real estate, bank accounts, investment vehicles, credit cards, frequent flyer points and other financial-related records. “The key to selecting any form of account aggregation is to select a program that best fits your individual needs,” says Spalding. Wealth Check, like some other programs, allows important non-financial documents to be included in the aggregation report as well. “By simply scanning documents like wills, healthcare directives, insurance policies and deeds, you can create a one-stop place for all your important documents to make it easy for your loved ones when they need to access them.”

“I like to tell my clients that using account aggregation software is like writing a love letter to the most important people in their lives. Think about how important it could be to have all of your important financial information in one place,” says Spalding. “As a society, we are more mobile than ever. Online account aggregation programs make critical information accessible from anywhere in the world.”

Spalding believes five tips will assist anyone in getting their financial house in order.

RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH

As with any consumer good, Spalding recommends that those looking for account aggregation research the company that provides the service. “While cost is a factor for many people, the least expensive option in account aggregation software is not always the best,” says Spalding. “You want to critically look at the company and examine what measures it takes to ensure the safety and security of your personal financial information. You may want to pay special attention to whether or not the company sells its information to other companies for marketing purposes.” Spalding warns that if a company sells its client’s information to other companies, the client could be subject to a plethora of unwanted product advertising and their personal information could be compromised. “You also want to ensure that you are using a program that offers high-level security access that is re-encrypted each time you utilize the software.”

EVALUATE ONLINE SOFTWARE

Because there are several kinds of account aggregation software available, both online and offline, Spalding suggests that those considering using these programs must decide between online and offline options. “Both online and offline software has its advantages,” says Spalding. “My preference is for an online system because those programs often have the capability to pull your financial information from several different places to provide a holistic snapshot of your financial house. This account ‘scraping’ is one of the main reasons that I prefer online software like Wealth Check” An additional added benefit of online software is that it is often backed up on a server to ensure that if a consumer’s computer crashes, that the information one has come to rely on will still be available. Online software also allows access to the information 24/7 from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection.

AND OFFLINE SOFTWARE

Traditional software can have its advantages as well according to Spalding. One of the major advantages is that personal information is not “out there” in cyberspace; this alleviates the potential for hackers to be able to access the sensitive personal financial information. “The downside is that because the information is not kept on a server other than your own, if your computer crashes, the information may be gone for good,” says Spalding. “An easy fix for that solution is to purchase a portable hard drive or a flash disk to keep the information separate from your computer’s main hard drive.”

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 24, 2012

Red Mortgage Capital, LLC, the mortgage banking arm of comprehensive capital provider RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC is pleased to announce it processed and funded a $ 9,570,000 FHA 221(d)(4) insured mortgage commitment through HUD Chicago for the historic Pullman Wheelworks, a 210-unit affordable housing apartment building on Chicagos south side. The FHA commitment was secured just 41 days following submission of the application.

Project sponsors Mercy Housing Lakefront and National Housing Trust/Enterprise Preservation Corporation recently hosted a tour of the newly acquired property to highlight the latest preservation strategies they are employing together to address the regions affordable housing crisis. Attending the gathering was the Honorable Shaun Donovan, U.S. Secretary for Housing and Urban Development.

Pullman Wheelworks, built in 1903 as part of a working community developed by railroad industrialist George Pullman, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is being redeveloped and preserved as part of an overall neighborhood revitalization plan anticipated to occur over the next several years.

The substantial rehabilitation of the project, scheduled for completion in approximately 18 months, will include major renovations to kitchens, bathrooms and balconies, new windows throughout, and new and expanded common space areas. Having last been rehabbed in 1980, the revitalization will ensure the long term economic viability of the project, thereby preserving essential housing for the low income residents of the area. The project has 122 one-bedroom units; 28 two-bedroom units; 54 three-bedroom units and 6 studio units. The community is fully leased at present except for 10 leases that were allowed to lapse in order to provide temporary housing for tenants while their own units undergo renovation.

The financing had multiple layers of capital and a very tight time frame in which to secure the FHA commitment – a key component of the financing. Ultimately, the complex structure utilized 11 sources of capital including tax-exempt bonds issued under the U.S. Treasurys New Issue Bond Program, historic tax credits, 4% low income housing tax credits (LIHTC), and HOME loans.

Red Mortgage Capital, LLC Senior Managing Director John K. Powell said, HUD Chicago was exceptionally timely and responsive. Their delivery of an FHA Commitment just 41 days after submission demonstrates considerable effort and a dedication to furthering their mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD was integral in helping to make this transaction happen in a tight timeframe so that other deadlines could be met successfully, and we applaud them.

We were pleased to welcome the Secretary to Chicago to showcase the preservation of this historic building and the community development occurring in the neighborhood, said Mark Angelini, Senior Vice President, Real Estate Development for Mercy Housing Lakefront. The many layers of financing employed in the purchase of the building were significant to help us overcome barriers to buy the property. We thank the many partners who contributed. Three levels of government HUD, Illinois Housing Development Authority and the City of Chicago came together through the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation-sponsored initiative known as the Preservation Compact, a city-wide effort to stem the loss of affordable rental housing in the Chicago area. Community Investment Corporation and National Affordable Housing Trust also played key roles that contributed to the purchase of the property.

Operating nationwide since its inception in 1990, RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC is recognized for its industry expertise, innovative and comprehensive structures, and consistently high lender rankings. Red Mortgage Capital, LLC is one of the nations top three FHA lenders for overall Multifamily/LEAN experience, having closed more than 100 transactions totaling nearly $ 1.2 billion during HUD FY2011, and also is an active Fannie Mae DUS
