Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates Achieves $5M+ Settlement for Girl in Birth Malpractice Case

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA, USA, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates, headquartered at 9200 Sunset Blvd Suite 670, West Hollywood, CA 90069, achieved a $5 million settlement on Feb. 25, 2021, for a girl who recently suffered a brain injury as a result of alleged birth-related medical malpractice.

According to Dr. Fagel of the Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates, the reported medical malpractice incident took place in 2018. At that time, a woman went into labor and began to develop vaginal bleeding and severe pain that were not normal for the labor process. With the bleeding and pain came abnormalities in her baby’s heart rate. However, according to Dr. Fagel, the labor nurses did not recognize most of these abnormalities, so no one pursued an intervention in the labor and delivery process.

Dr. Fagel said the woman eventually became 10 centimeters dilated and was therefore told to push. However, the staff members determined that her unborn baby’s heart rate was low—a sign that the child lacked oxygen and thus needed to be delivered through an emergency C-section. Still, the staff decided to wait on the patient’s private obstetrician to drive to the hospital to perform the surgery, rather than tapping the in-house hospitalist to handle it. During the waiting period, the baby’s heart rate continued to deteriorate, and as a result, the baby was born barely alive, according to Dr. Fagel.

Dr. Fagel said the baby ended up suffering brain damage despite spending a significant amount of time at the medical center recovering from the incident. Today, the child is 3 years old and is unable to talk, walk, scoot, or stand. In addition, she can eat only pureed food by spoon and may actually need a gastronomy tube for feeding in the future.

In this alleged medical malpractice case, the parents of the toddler ultimately reached a settlement with the reportedly at-fault hospital for $5,029,000.

Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO of Israel's Else Nutrition, has been announced as a “Top 100 Innovation CEO – 2021” by World Biz Magazine.

Innovation is the lifeblood of Else Nutrition. We are constantly looking for the ‘something’ else that customer and the market are wanting.”

— Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO of Else Nutrition

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO of Else Nutrition has been selected by the Judges of World Biz Magazine's annual awards to be a recipient of the Top 100 Innovation CEOs Award – 2021. This selection follows a stringent process that evaluated over 40,000 nominees to select the exclusive list of 100 winners.

Hamutal Yitzhak is a successful serial entrepreneur and inventor, with a series of global patents and innovations under her name, coupled with a portfolio of novel innovative foods that are nutritious, nourishing and preventive. Hamutal has dedicated most of her professional life to infant & child nutrition, and in recent years has relentlessly focused on the mission of making healthier cleaner foods accessible and available to everyone. In the last few years, Hamutal has been a trail blazer in this industry and has challenged the global infant formula industry by developing and producing natural clean foods, focusing on the transparency of ingredients and manufacturing processes to provide the cleanest and healthiest products possible. In addition to bringing about paradigm-shifting change to the infant nutrition sector on a global scale, the advancement has also stemmed from placing new thinking and emphasis on early childhood nutrition – merging the sciences of both infant nutrition and alternative health food.

Hamutal is currently the Chairwoman, CEO & Co-Founder of Else Nutrition Holdings Inc, (TSXV: BABY), (OTC: BABYF) which developed “Else” – the first 100% plant-based, globally patented dairy-free and soy-free baby nutrition, providing the first-ever viable alternative to traditional infant nutrition based on cow's milk and soy – which have been the standard for over 100 years. Else Nutrition was recently recognized by the TSX, a 2021 Venture 50TM Company, for best performance.

Nearly 13 years ago Hamutal Co-founded “HEART” vegan baby snacks, changing the face of the Israeli baby food industry, developing, and producing a series of 100% plant based, clean and healthy baby food snacks, which later became Israel's leading brand in the baby snacks category. Prior to that, Hamutal held various senior management positions within global healthcare companies, specializing in infant and child nutrition, including the Head of Infant Nutrition at Abbott Laboratories, Israel. She also spearheaded the campaign against BPA in Israel, one of the first countries to recognize the dangerous substance, and increased public awareness of the use of BPA in baby bottles in the early 2000’s, offering consumers the first safe alternative, a step that drove many other western countries around the globe at a later stage, to follow the same pathway, until banning BPA from baby products became a global consensus. Hamutal holds a BSc with honors in Psychology and General Science and MBA from Tel Aviv University (TAU). She lives in Tel Aviv, married and is a mother of 4.

Commenting on Innovation at Else Nutrition, Hamutal Yitzhak had this to say: "Innovation is the lifeblood of Else Nutrition. We are constantly looking for the ‘something’ else that customer and the market are wanting. We have created a breast milk analogue from an innovative combination of 3 plants using a disruptive, beyond organic, food processing which is the most sustainable, all natural, and cleanest in the industry. We are changing the way formula and nutrition are made, by keeping the sources of protein and fats – in our case, whole food plants, intact, changing just their texture and not their chemical structure (as traditionally done in every other formula in our industry)."

READ WORLD BIZ MAGAZINE'S EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH HAMUTAL YITZHAK, CEO OF ELSE NUTRITION: https://www.worldbizmagazine.net/post/hamutal-yitzhak-ceo-of-else-nutrition-award-winner-leadership-profile

About Else Nutrition
The rise of plant-based nutrition is promising; yet our babies and kids have the most limited options. We started Else because we believe that babies and children deserve a real alternative to dairy-based nutrition. After 120 years of little change to the baby formula category, a clean, plant-based alternative is long overdue. And now, we have one. Led by industry veterans, scientists, nutritionists, and parents, our team has created a real alternative to dairy-based formula that uses 92% whole-food ingredients and the cleanest, most natural production process to date. Why the focus on production? Less processed ingredients offer more of the nutritional value we gain from real, whole foods – all while minimizing environmental impact. By not altering the chemistry of our core plant ingredients, we preserve more of the goodness that nature intended. Dairy and soy have always been the industry standard. Now, there’s something else – a dairy-free, soy-free, clean-label alternative for 12 months and older. What we make is real nutrition for little ones, providing a real choice for their parents. We hope you’ll join us on the else journey. www.elsenutrition.com

Dr. Jennifer R Berman Now Offering BioTe Pellets Therapy

The Los Angeles doctor unveils new developments in hormonal treatments

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Jennifer Berman has announced her release of Biote Pellet therapy, after months of development and testing. The pellets are targeted towards women facing hormonal imbalance issues, especially as women who are older. Hormonal imbalances can become extremely uncomfortable for women, as the side effects may be unpredictable and painful. To treat this issue, Dr. Berman’s biote pellets will restore the body to its natural state prior to hormonal issues. Dr. Berman’s new service has already become popular at her office, with dozens of clients requesting the treatment just weeks after launch.

“I was able to try the pellet treatment when it came out, and I feel so much calmer and healthier. I appreciate Dr. Berman’s efforts to help women like me out every day,” says Marlena W., a Los Angeles native. “It didn’t hurt one bit, and it only took about 7 minutes to insert the pellets correctly.”

The biote pellets are all natural, created from wild yams and soy materials. They are very small, usually a little larger than a grain of rice. The pellets are inserted through a miniscule incision in the buttocks, and the cut is sealed with surgical glue. The patient will not feel the pellets at all, as they absorb into the body and release the required doses. Dr. Berman’s pellets can work with both women and men, and birth control should not be affected when experiencing treatment. The pellets treat a variety of hormonal issues, such as anxiety and constant mood swings. There are minimal and rare side effects to pellet treatment, such as hair loss or mild acne.

Dr. Berman’ new pellet therapy is just one of the services she offers, and they are expected to increase in use as time goes on. The pandemic has caused many individuals' hormones to constantly change, so Berman has fully opened her services to anyone who may benefit. The pellet therapy prices are lower priced compared to other offices, as Berman leads in affordable pricing in the practice. Dr. Berman has carefully studied the symptoms of thousands of men and women to accurately treat hormonal imbalance. Her extensive work in the field helped to grasp the science of the biote pellet therapy and has already begun to help individuals struggling with their hormonal issues.

MO GOP Legislator Urged by Physician & Patient Advocacy Organizations to Abandon Plan to Thwart PBM Accountability

Coalition of Patient Advocates Working to Lower Prescription Drug Costs

If successful, Senator Burlison’s filibuster will eliminate accountability on the PBM industry and place upward pressure on prescription drug pricing”

— Dr. Robert Levin, ATAPs President

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today the Alliance for Transparent and Affordable Prescriptions (ATAP) released a letter sent on behalf of its membership to Eric Burlison, a Missouri State Senator requesting he abandon a plan to allow the pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) industry continue its abusive practices and jeopardize patients. Following up on information that Senator Burlison is planning to filibuster legislation including HB 834 and its companion bill SB 403 this week, concerns in the medical and patient advocacy community are growing – and many are voicing major concerns.

“If successful, Senator Burlison’s filibuster will eliminate accountability on the PBM industry and place upward pressure on prescription drug pricing,” stated Dr. Robert Levin, ATAP President. “For far too long, PBMs generated significant profits while patients struggle to afford the cost of prescription drugs. It is time that elected officials and policymakers see what is really happening in our exam rooms and our patient’s wallets due to PBM interference.”

ATAP has been an active advocate for patients in a variety of federal and state battles to amplify the voices of patients and physicians.

The letter to Senator Burlison states, in part: “…the Trump administration proposed a rule through Health and Human Services (HHS), that would have eliminated the safe harbor that protects PBM rebates from the federal anti-kickback statute. This awesome proposal would have effectively eliminated the PBM rebate system… Regrettably, the new administration withdrew this essential patient protection. States can play a central role to ensure that patients are still protected from abusive PBM practices…”

“A light is finally shining on the previously hidden profit motives of the PBM industry. Patients, physicians, and policymakers in Missouri have the power to effect meaningful change if Senator Burlison allows this legislation to be considered fairly,” Dr. Levin continued. “More transparency is desperately needed in the PBM industry, and this legislation provides it. It is truly a mystery why any elected official would prevent such accountability and stand in the way of fair drug prices and patient access to care.”

The full letter to Senator Burlison is below and posted on ATAP's website.

The Honorable Eric Burlison
201 W Capitol Ave., Rm. 221
Jefferson City, Missouri 65101

RE:MO HB 834 and SB 403 – Pharmacy Benefit Managers Reporting/Transparency

Dear Senator Burlison:

We are saddened and dismayed to learn of your recent stance regarding Missouri HB 834. We are painfully aware of a planned filibuster to MO HB 834 and its companion bill SB 403.

As you may be aware, Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) are third-party entities that are hired by insurers and health plan sponsors to manage and administer prescription drug benefit plans.

We are very concerned about the role PBMs play regarding the alarming price increases in the total cost and out of pocket costs of prescription drugs for patients, resulting in the loss of patient access to affordable and life-saving medications.

HB 834 will help remedy many of these practices by:

• Ensuring oversight of PBMs by the Dir. of the MO Dept of Commerce and Insurance;
• Allowing for penalties for violations of this statute;
• Providing for reporting of rebates received by PBMs, including – where the rebates are being applied, and reporting of yearly aggregated rebate dollar amounts received; and
• Providing for freedom of choice for patients to choose their pharmacy

As you may know, the Trump administration proposed a rule through Health and Human Services (HHS), that would have eliminated the safe harbor that protects PBM rebates from the federal anti-kickback statute. This awesome proposal would have effectively eliminated the PBM rebate system.

Regrettably, the new administration withdrew this essential patient protection. States can play a central role to ensure that patients are still protected from abusive PBM practices.

We ask that you help ensure that our patients and your constituents have affordable access to the medications which they so desperately need, by supporting MO HB 834 and its companion bill SB 403.

Sincerely,

The Alliance for Transparent and Affordable Prescriptions (ATAP) Member Organization

###

ATAP continues to support efforts to force the PBM industry to disclose rebate data and encourage transparency and reporting requirements for all entities involved in the prescription drug supply chain – PBMs, insurers, and manufacturers.

Tech, health care companies partner to fight epidemic of prescription misuse

We believe technology can improve relationships between the health care system and patients and provide insights that lead to better health.”

— Gavin Buchanan

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year, misuse of prescription medication causes 125,000 deaths; 10% of U.S. hospitalizations; and costs the U.S. health care system at least $300 billion. The reasons are many – high costs, personal beliefs, confusing regimens or forgetfulness – but the solutions are few and rarely address more than one underlying cause. Or they were, until RemediChain and PatchRx changed the game by offering no-cost medications and a patient engagement platform designed to boost adherence.

“In my experience, up to a third of prescriptions are never picked up,” said Phil Baker, pharmacist and co-founder of RemediChain. “At the same time, up to half of prescriptions that are filled aren’t being taken as prescribed. It leads to a lot of preventable health problems.”

Baker and his partners set out to address one common issue – high costs – through the nonprofit Good Shepherd Pharmacy, which offers its members medications at-cost or free. Through their blockchain technology company RemediChain, they also, after successfully changing a law in Tennessee, began accepting individual donations of unused, high-value oral chemotherapy to redistribute to patients in need. But they still had no way to effectively track patient adherence to these medications. Enter PatchRx.

“When we started Patch in 2018, we knew health care often overlooked an important member of the team in the prescribing and dispensing process – the patient,” said Gavin Buchanan, co-founder of PatchRx. “Since then we have worked diligently to combine technology and clinical insights to help simplify taking medications and improving health outcomes. We believe technology can improve relationships between the health care system and patients and provide insights that lead to better health.”

Now, in partnership with RemediChain, PatchRx will put its expertise and technology to work. The company’s software solutions send multi-level reminders to patients when it’s time to take their medication and seamlessly record when (and if) they do. The patients receive rewards for these efforts in the app and can allow “buddies” to receive notifications, which allows a caregiver or family member to support the patient in optimizing their medication adherence.

Beginning in June 2021, patients who receive free oral chemotherapy medication through RemediChain and Good Shepherd Pharmacy will opt in to utilizing PatchRx. Patients’ prescription bottles can be fitted with a PatchCap, an innovative device that is integrated with PatchRx software to seamlessly record administered doses. The team at Good Shepherd Pharmacy and RemediChain will utilize PatchRx clinical software to monitor compliance with the patients’ chemotherapy regimens. Currently, 18 patients are receiving no-cost oral chemotherapy through RemediChain, and the partners hope to have 50 participating patients over the next few months.

“Oral chemotherapy drugs check several boxes for noncompliance risk,” Baker said. “They’re generally incredibly expensive. They often have significant side effects. But they’re crucial to an individual who needs them. If we can improve adherence in this sector of health care, we can make a huge difference.”

The study will last six months for enrolled patients. Results will likely be available in early 2022. PatchRx plans to utilize insights from its partnership with RemediChain to get patients the medications they need; to provide them with the tools to take them correctly; and, ultimately, to improve their health.

About PatchRx
Started in 2018 by Andrew Aertker and Gavin Buchanan, PatchRx is dedicated to using technology to improve health outcomes. Through its first-of-its-kind PatchCap technology, the company is assisting clinical research facilities with patient adherence; helping the everyday consumer with their daily medications; and striving to mitigate the effects of the opioid crisis through controlled medication management. For more information, visit https://www.patchrx.io/.

About RemediChain
We believe surplus medication should be managed as a resource. The RemediChain platform incentivizes community members to text a picture of their unused prescriptions. When a chemotherapy is identified, the platform generates a prescription donation form and a link that covers the shipping costs to our facility. The medications are inspected by a licensed pharmacist for safety before being added to inventory. Our virtual inventory is made available to a network of cancer centers across the nation connecting vulnerable patients with cancer treatment they would not receive by any other means. RemediChain's #FlipYourScrip program was named a World Changing Ideas finalist by Fast Company in 2021. For more information, visit www.remedichain.org.

Youth for Human Rights Washington, DC, team members delivered school seminars and now online seminars to educate on the topic of human rights.

As awareness of human rights abuses increases, the need to comprehensively educate youth on what human rights are is more important than ever.

These materials are a practical guide for any person working in human rights. They are simple, easy and suitable for any age or literary level, so that anyone can understand them.”

— Ms. Isabelle Vladoiu

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Almost daily we hear about violations of human rights across the globe. In the US, issues range from cyber bullying to policing issues to mass shootings.

One group is working to counteract these violent trends by using education to create a culture of human rights – one student at a time, free of charge.

Some may consider that human rights education is dull and legal in nature. Youth for Human Rights International brings human rights to life by providing teachers, leaders of groups, and organizations with an entire curriculum that includes easy-to-understand booklets, interactive videos and lesson plans based on the international standard for human rights, the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

One organization, the US Institute of Diplomacy and Human Rights (USIDHR), has been using the Youth for Human Rights educational materials to train a generation of “human rights consultants” who can help others navigate human rights concerns in their work places, schools and groups. More than 1,500 individuals have graduated in just the past four months and have been provided with the educational tools and curriculum necessary to educate others.

“It is always hard to explain legal terms in international human rights law,” said international specialist on human rights law and founder of USIDHR, Ms. Isabelle Vladoiu. “These materials are a practical guide for any person working in human rights. They are simple, easy and suitable for any age or literary level, so that anyone can understand them.”

Indeed, one student who attended USIDHR’s training commented at the end of a seminar, “I am learning about rights I never knew I had! These are rights I now know about and can fight to protect.”

Everyone from preteens to seniors, educators and parents, managers and workers – anyone wanting to learn more about human rights – can benefit from the Youth for Human Rights materials.

Groups such as USIDHR around the world use the Youth for Human Rights educational materials in their own seminars. Youth for Human Rights International has local chapters in major cities, such as Youth for Human Rights Washington, DC, which teaches youth their rights through human rights pop-up exhibits, art contests and panel discussions on human rights issues. Youth for Human Rights DC will hold a human rights concert on July 4th in celebration of Youth for Human Rights International’s 20th anniversary.

Local Energy Management Firm Provides Expert Weather Analysts and Deep Market Knowledge Days Ahead of Winter Storm Uri

During winter storm Uri, Choice Energy Management far exceeded my expectations at managing company exposure to the prevailing high energy prices experienced in the market.”

— Noltex President, Brian Kinkopf

HOUSTON , TEXAS, USA, May 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — There’s no question that most Houstonians and Texans alike, were not prepared for the devastating impact of winter storm Uri but one local energy management firm saw the writing on the wall days ahead, and prepared accordingly. When Uri began impacting Texas on February 14th, grid resilience and reliability came into question with thousands of businesses and residences losing power for extended periods, and the aftermath was an outcry regarding high energy bills. Choice! Energy was prepared well in advance for such a unique weather event, and its clients benefited financially from their proactive response to the crisis. “Choice! Energy Management is fully equipped to navigate our clients through weather events such as Uri that affect the market,” said CEO Kiki Dikmen. “We provide comprehensive energy management services to our clients, using expertise and technology to find value and assist in achieving their differing goals,” continued Dikmen.

Choice! Energy took initiative and informed all managed product customers on Thursday, February 11th, before the storm. Managed product customers were equipped with language in their contracts by the advice of Choice! to allow them to sell back power to the grid in time of need. Choice! offered dollars to buy back some of the power and/or gave the option to sell back at market rates but made sure managed product clients were aware of weather events and shed load in accordance.

Several Choice! clients including some notable midstream companies and large manufacturing operations, such as the likes of Cimbar and Noltex benefited from this power management approach. “During winter storm Uri, Choice Energy Management far exceeded my expectations at managing company exposure to the prevailing high energy prices experienced in the market,” said Noltex President, Brian Kinkopf.

Choice! Energy Management was able to utilize its weather analysts and deep market knowledge, combined with previously smartly designed contracts to allow its customers to not just sell power back to the grid and provide relief during power shortage but also provide a new positive cash flow to its clients during the process. They had several clients selling back power to the grid in excess of 2 million each and some clients with levels exceeding 10 million. Furthermore, Choice! utilized its proprietary software to track, audit and validate the invoices that were to come in the aftermath.
