Behavioral Health Information EHR Company Signs Up for Data Sharing Through Michigan Health Information Network: The Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) has announced that PCE Systems, a provider of electronic health record products and services to Michigan behavioral health organizations, has executed the legal data sharing agreements to become a Virtually Qualified Data Sharing Organization (VQO) through MiHIN. As a MiHIN VQO, PCE has the ability to securely send and receive health information securely through MiHIN to other Qualified Data Sharing Organizations (QO’s) connected to MiHIN. PCE Systems can now utilize the Shared Services offered by MiHIN and allow Michigan’s sub-state Health Information Exchanges (HIE) to connect their physical health networks with behavioral health and substance abuse treatment organizations connected to PCE’s information exchange network. This will provide clinical staff with secure access to comprehensive patient health information in a manner that is consistent with the additional privacy protections afforded to behavioral health and substance abuse treatment information. The Upper Peninsula Health Information Exchange (UPHIE), a MiHIN Qualified Organization and sub-state HIE, plans to immediately undertake a behavioral health information exchange pilot with MiHIN and PCE.

Integrated Vascular Vein Center Hires 3Sixty Interactive for Online Marketing: The Fenton digital marketing agency 3Sixty Interactive was recently hired by Integrated Vascular Vein Center of Michigan to handle the online marketing of their business. 3Sixty Interactive plans to take on a Web site redesign, organic search, paid search, and the improvement of conversion rates. In this fast paced society, online marketing has become a necessary channel in reaching customers. Integrated Vascular Vein Center of Michigan previously relied solely on referrals, and organic search efforts to reach potential customers. They had low Web site traffic with high bounce rates that lead 3Sixty Interactive to take an in-depth look at its online marketing efforts. Integrated Vascular Vein Center of Michigan’s website was seeing low conversion rates due to confusing content, irrelevant imagery, and misplaced landing pages. They were also lacking in paid search (Pay-Per-Click) advertisements that could lead potential customers directly to their Web site. 3Sixty Interactive has taken on the task of helping the Integrated Vascular Vein Center of Michigan improve their online marketing efforts, and enhance online responses. Integrated Vascular Vein Center of Michigan provides a full range of quick and effective procedures for the treatment of vein disorders. The doctors, Thomas Shuster and Brad Sweda, are board certified physicians that use the most up-to-date technologies and equipment to reach optimal results. They are also dedicated to complete patient satisfaction, and using minimally invasive techniques to ensure unwanted side effects.

Ozmott is a mobile platform built to connect retail merchants with consumers through a virtual economy. The application relies on a sustainable deals model that allows consumers to take advantage of in-demand, merchant-supplied offers. Daily deal sites have seen increased growth over the past few years, yet Ozmott is different. Where most sites rely on individual purchases to unlock group deals, Ozmott aims to create a community; where users interact, make friends and gain access to ‘Luxe Offers’. By introducing their own brand of virtual currency, or Pips, Ozmott users are encouraged to share deals with their friends to earn additional Pips where they later can be applied toward otherwise out of reach high- end lifestyle products.
