September Is Prostate Health Month
The odds are that, if you are a man between the ages of forty and sixty, you probably have experienced a prostate problem. Yet, a recent poll showed that nine out of ten men did not even know what the prostate is! Luckily, September is National Prostate Health Month and organizations across the country will join in an effort to bring awareness to prostate health, prostate diseases, and treatment options. Millions of men suffer needlessly due to ignorance and resignation when simple measures such as getting a check-up, nutrition and supplements, and prostate massage can greatly relieve the inevitable symptoms of prostate disease, which include frequent urination, especially at night, pelvic pain or discomfort, weak urine stream, and even erectile dysfunction. In our continued efforts toward education and change, High Island Health will donate $1 of each prostate massager sale to the Prostate Health Foundation.

DMX Works, Inc. Offers Sophisticated Digital Motion X-Ray Report Writer as ACOM Healthcare Business Division Reseller Partner
JACKSONVILLE, Florida, August 14, 2008 – DMX Works, Inc., the inventor of the DMX Digital Motion X-Ray System and a referral partner of the ACOM Healthcare Business Division, has now been named a reseller partner as well, offering the sophisticated, ACOM-developed iDMX report writer either as a component of its total solution or as a post-sale option, it was announced today by Founder/President Dr. John Postlethwaite and Gregory T. Church, vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Business Division.
“The iDMX report writer adds significant value to the DMX solution, supporting doctors both in the diagnoses made using the system and in communicating those results to the appropriate parties,” said Dr. Postlethwaite. “Digital Motion X-ray goes well beyond static x-ray examinations, sequentially capturing 30 images per second while patients perform a flow of natural movements. A problem that kept arising among users was the inability of doctors to adequately express the conditions revealed through DMX on their reports. The iDMX software eliminates this problem by giving the physician a simple “touch and click” format.”
Better Diagnoses, Better Reimbursement
The DMX process can reveal soft-tissue injuries that are undetectable in still images, Dr. Postlethwaite said, noting that doctors can then respond with more comprehensive courses of treatment for patients, with commensurately better reimbursements for their practices.”
The iDMX checklist walks the doctor through the DVD-resident images shown on the tablet computer screen, letting the doctor know what to look for each step of the way, and offering selection boxes for recording the conditions found. Each selection box is related to specific text blocks that makes a Findings and Observations Report virtually automatically.
An array of possible findings are listed in an easy to follow sequence, where the only thing the doctor has to do is touch the screen of either a desktop or tablet computer in the appropriate description. The doctor simply makes the analysis, then clicks. The computer does the rest. The database builds automatically with each use, streamlining any doctor’s report by eliminating the need to constantly put in common entries, such as the doctor’s name and insurance providers.
