Health Insurance, Health Care Issues Now Top Rated Topics for Radio Listeners According to Arbitron


Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) August 16, 2007

Cary Hall announced today that the Health Insurance Advocate Show, featured on Talk Radio 710 KCMO in Kansas City, Missouri, 9 a.m. Saturdays, has recently experienced a significant Arbitron ratings increase of 119 percent, more than doubling its listenership since this time last year. The program also airs on News Radio 1330 KNSS Talk Radio in Wichita, Kansas, noon on Saturdays, and has experienced an Arbitron ratings increase of 576 percent in the past year – an increase Hall says is a direct result of teaching listeners to feel confident in their understanding of healthcare coverage. Listen to program podcast or live.

“With so much change in the industry and the relentless cost increases that can often drive consumers away from even having healthcare coverage, we believe we know why the show has had such incredible gains in popularity,” Hall said. “Simply put, it’s desperately needed.”

Hall is host of the Saturday morning program as well as president of Benefits By Design, a health insurance and consumer advocate company. The radio program is now the number one rated Saturday talk show in the region according to Arbitron Winter Book Ratings for 2007.

“We’re ending the myth that health insurance is not affordable with a cutting edge program designed to educate and raise awareness in the group and individual policy markets,” said Hall. “We’re helping everyone from sole proprietors who are trying to raise their families to HR executives at large corporations who are trying to make sense out of poorly performing group policies. The show teaches them to understand the market and how best to protect their employees and loved ones with incredible savings and coverage efficiency.”

“People don’t gain clarity on Medicare changes or child-only coverage or caring for elderly parents and so many other very personal issues by reading a boring conventional brochure,” Hall says. “We teach our listeners by conversing with knowledgeable experts, healthcare professionals and community service organizations every week in order to put a human face on what we all face together — the need to protect ourselves and our families and the need to conserve and protect our dollars.”

Hall cites the fact that the health insurance industry can be complex and often leads to confusion, frustration and even heartache in the market place. Breaking down industry terminology and government regulations, demonstrating cost efficiency and giving consumers confidence in the purchase of healthcare coverage is what the Health Insurance Advocate Show strives to deliver.

The new Arbitron ratings come at a crucial time as the Health Insurance Advocate Show reaches its fourth anniversary on the air in Kansas City, touching most of western Missouri and eastern Kansas. The program is in its second year in the Wichita market.

The Health Insurance Advocate Show, heard in Kansas City on Talk Radio 710 KCMO Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and in Wichita on News Radio 1330 KNSS Talk Radio Saturdays from Noon to 1 p.m., is Kansas City’s and Wichita’s only source for the latest information on the health insurance industry.

Sunday Morning Radio Show Gives Tips to Help Prevent Child Sexual Abuse


Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) January 30, 2012

“Criminal background checks aren’t enough to keep child molesters away from children,” explained Don Dymer of SingleSource during his Sunday morning interview on “Inside Jacksonville.” The radio show is hosted by Jim Byard and aired on four stations, Lite, 96.1; Country Legends, 100.7; Sunny, 94.1 and Gator Country 99.9.

“What has been frustrating to me over sixteen years in the background screening industry and a full career before that in law enforcement at Scotland Yard, is that our criminal record system doesn’t provide enough insight about those who would victimize children and youth,” Dymer continued. “That frustration lead me on a journey over a year ago to find out if there was anything out there that could supplement finger-printing and background checks and fill that critical void.”

Now Dymer is ready to share his findings with everyone at an all day education conference planned on February 3. He organized the Protect the Children Conference being held at the University of North Florida’s University Center. He has brought together professionals from mental health fields, juvenile justice systems and organizations dedicated to helping prevent child abuse, and, provide support for victims together for one day to let the world know about a powerful adjunct to traditional background screening practices.

“I have discovered an amazing assessment tool, that, combined with thorough background screening, finger printing and reference checks can identify with an incredibly high degree of accuracy if a person lacks an understanding of what boundaries should exist between adults and children.”

Byard asked Dymer, “How could there still be so much threat out there? We warn our kids so all the time about the danger of strangers?” To which Dymer explained that according to research by many organizations, including Abel Screening, 90% of the victims are abused by people they know, love or trust.

Child abusers groom not just their victims, but the victims’ families as well. Parents have been lulled into a false sense of security and often tell themselves that they have done their part by warning their children to stay away from strangers. Dymer urges not just parents, but those actively involved as volunteers or workers in schools, youth organizations and day care centers to understand the warning signs. “Be aware of the coach or volunteer devoting too much time and attention to one particular student or athlete. Not just the star of the team, but look out for a little too much attention to one student over another. Invitations to watch sports events at their homes without parental supervision or often, without other classmates, overnight trips, one-on-one situations where the child or youth is isolated from parents and friends to spend alone time with an adult outside of the family unit should be noticed and not ignored.” 81% of child sexual abuse incidents for all ages occur in one-perpetrator/one-child circumstances (Snyder, 2000).

The Protect the Children Conference is a must for parents, guidance counselors, daycare and preschools, churches, children’s homes, foster agencies, advocacy agencies, hospitals and rehabilitation centers as well as those in the justice system.

Child sexual abuse persists in places where our children should be safe, explained Don Dymer. The Protect the Children Conference offers seven continuing education credits for The National Board of Certified Counselors, the American Psychological Association and five credits from the Society of Human Resource Managers.

Accutech Security Introduces New Compact Two-Way Radio


Franklin, WI (PRWEB) March 05, 2012

Today Accutech Security formally announces the introduction of the Accutech Two-Way Radio – a light weight, two-way radio that gives health care facilities an effective, low cost communication tool that also integrates into existing security systems to function as a customizable alarm notification device. Hospitals and long term care facilities are required to have wander management and child abduction prevention systems that trigger alerts when either a resident, newborn baby or toddler gets too close to an exit or restricted area. While these systems ensure the safety of patients who require them, they put an added demand on the staff entrusted with their care and often compound the commotion of an already hectic environment. By easing the ability of a facilitys staff to communicate with each other and giving everybody specific information about the location and nature of an alarm, the radio increases the safety and efficiency of health care facilities.

The compact radio is a four and a half inch tall radio that weighs three ounces. This two-way radio decreases the time it takes for the staff of a health care facility to respond to an alarm by sending customizable audio messages to all the radios on the network. By integrating into an existing security system, it also increases safety through redundant alert awareness. When an alarm is triggered, the facilitys staff is notified via the radio – wherever they are – exactly what and where the alarm is and can communicate an immediate response – ensuring that someone is responding to the alarm and eliminating multiple people being interrupted to address the same situation.

The radios ability to enunciate door alarm locations allows our staff to respond more quickly to an incident. It also saves time by sending an alert when the alarm is cleared, so that we don’t have multiple nurses responding after it has been cleared, said Margaret K, Director of Nursing

Alerts recorded to .wav files using a built-in microphone on top of the transmitter unit are sent to the Accutech Radio when an alarm is triggered or cleared. These can be programmed to repeat at customizable intervals until the alarm has been cleared. When the status of the switch/sensor changes, a recorded message is automatically sent to all staff equipped with an Accutech two-way radio. Each transmitter unit connects up to four switches or sensors, and there is no limit as to the number of units that can be integrated into an Accutech security system. Repeaters are also available for the Accutech two-way radios – this means that an integrated Accutech security system can easily cover a health care facility of any size.

As an industry leader in the infant protection, wander management and pediatric elopement fields, Accutech is dedicated to achieving customer satisfaction through ongoing development, implementation and integration of healthcare security systems, said Josh Williams, President and CEO of Accutech Security. The Accutech two-way radio easily integrates into existing Accutech RFID security systems, which include ResidentGuard for wander management, Cuddles for infant abduction prevention, and Kidz for pediatric protection.

Radio Features:

6-Unit Charger

Each radio comes with an individual charger. In addition, Accutech offers a 6-unit charger that can charge 6 radios and 6 spare lithium-ion batteries simultaneously. The 6-unit charger reduces the need for power outlets and provides a central point for staff to retrieve/return their radio and complete any sign-in/sign-out paperwork, etc. The 6-unit charger also enables a facility to clone a programmed radio onto an unprogrammed radio – allowing for quick and easy additional or replacement radios.

Lithium-ion Battery life

The rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that come with the radio are able to operate for 12 hours on one charge. This means that a single two-way radio can be used across multiple shifts to cover a 24 hour period with one spare battery.

8 talk channels

Multiple channels enable a facilitys staff to be setup into different talk-groups, i.e. one for the west wing, one for the east wing, and one channel for managers.

FCC Bandwidth

Accutech two-way radios operate within UHF 450-470 Mhz – the licensed FCC bandwidth. These frequencies are more secure and reduce the risk of cross-talk interference.

FCC Licensing

Accutech two-way radios operate on secure radio frequencies that are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This ensures compliance with HIPAA regulations for patient privacy. In order to transmit on these frequencies, a facility is required to have a license issued by the FCC. Accutech can assist with FCC licensing, including national licensing for health care companies with multiple facilities.

About Accutech

Accutech has engineered, manufactured, distributed and serviced radio frequency identification (RFID) and wireless products since 1985. They are an industry leader in the infant protection, resident wandering and pediatric elopement fields, with ongoing development, implementation and integration of healthcare related security systems. Their markets primarily consist of hospitals, birthing centers, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing homes, sub-acute facilities and even residential homes. All Accutech systems are manufactured in the U.S., and backed by the industrys most comprehensive customer support program.







Inside Jacksonville Radio Show Examines The Obstacles That Hinder Child Sexual Abuse Detection and Prevention


Jacksonville Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 24, 2012

Inside Jacksonville, a weekly radio show on station 96.1, produced by Renda Broacasting with host Jim Byard recently sat down with Stacy Pendarvis, of EmpowerToProtect and Donald J. Dymer, CEO and president of SingleSource background screening services to examine the obstacles that still exist to effectively prevent child sexual abuse.

In response to Byards question, what are your thoughts about this whole Penn State situation? Don Dymer answered, the situation at Penn State reflected all of the typical characteristics of child sexual abuse that goes on all around us, from grooming the child to most importantly the people around the abuse, who saw or suspected the abuse and never said a word about it. At Penn State they apparently placed money derived from promotions, scholarships, etc. in front of child safety, and this type of strange justification goes on all around us. The irony is that ultimately the organization will be found out and their reputation will be destroyed anyway, but sadly and more importantly, the victims of child sexual abuse never recover while people remain in denial.

Pendarvis concurred, The CDC reports that the victims of child sexual abuse suffer long term and severe mental and physical health issues, and experience earlier death even if they receive extensive counseling. Jim Byard stated that it was still difficult to understand why so many people remained silent. Pendarvis, who holds a masters degree in academic psychology in addition to her 17 years in child safety and abuse prevention explained the role of the bystander effect. Certainly there are many reasons why people dont report abuse. Fear of damaging someones reputation, fear of retaliation, and the fear of being wrong. Frequently people who witness a crime or bad act feel certain that someone else around them also has noticed and will report the crime so there is no need for them to also report the incident. We see this in traffic accidents or in situations where multiple people watch people suffer and ask themselves Should I do something, should I walk away?’ This type of thinking enables child sexual abusers.

Don Dymer added, There is also another reason for not reporting the abuse and that is there are people out there who simply dont recognize the boundaries that should exist between adult and child. They may not be pedophiles, and they aren’t suffering from the bystander effect, but they clearly lack the ability to determine what is appropriate behavior and these individuals put children at risk to the same degree as the child molesters. This is why as a background screening professional and founding member of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners I am alerting all organizations to test candidates for hire or volunteer who wish to work with children by demanding they take the Diana Screen

Fresno California DUI Attorney Terry Wapner Featured on KYNO Radio Show


Fresno, California (PRWEB) September 21, 2012

Fresno California DUI Lawyer Terry Wapner was a featured guest expert on E. Curtis Johnsons 940 KYNO radio show. Wapner talked about how trial by media may taint the jury pool in high-profile cases.

Wapners radio interview coincided with the high-profile Fresno case in which a basketball coach was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and vehicular manslaughter. The crash had fatally injured a 7-year-old child and seriously injured his father and 18-month-old sister.

Trial by media is very real, especially with DUIs, said Terry Wapner, a Fresno DUI lawyer for over 20 years. It takes a long time to qualify a jury, to pick a juror, especially with DUI. A lot of people can become indoctrinated against the case before the trial even starts, and whether they know the actual facts or not.

As Fresno DUI lawyer Wapner understands, the media generally projects a strong pro-prosecution bias. Also a problem is that most people cannot relate to a criminal defendant.

Some cases are very emotional and appear on the surface to be bad, but there are a lot of issues in these cases. Even in cases where everything is apparently cut and dry, its not, said Wapner.

The media gives the public the opportunity to play armchair jury and judge.

The alleged crime is being tried in the media. The public then tends to remember details from those initial few weeks whether they are true or not. For many defendants, when a case is judged in the media, permanent damage is done, said Wapner.

About Terry Wapner and the Law Offices of Terry A. Wapner:

Fresno DUI Lawyer Terry Wapner provides a combination of skilled legal defense, knowledge of California DUI laws, special training in the administration of field sobriety and breath tests and a technical understanding of the biology, chemistry and physiology associated with alcohol consumption. The majority of Attorney Wapner’s law practice is dedicated to drunk driving defense and protection of his client’s rights. That experience could mean the difference between being found guilty of drunk driving in California, and having a case dismissed.

The law office of Fresno CA DUI Attorney Terry Wapner offers a free initial consultation and competitive fees, coupled with a proven record of success. Clients are afforded both professional legal counsel and personal service. DUI defense lawyer Terry Wapner listens to his clients’ needs and develop the most appropriate legal defense for each case.

The penalties for being convicted for drunk driving in California can include loss of driver’s license, fines and court fees, jail, higher auto insurance premiums, community service and mandatory enrollment in an alcohol awareness program. The consequences of being found guilty of CA DUI and having a criminal arrest record make it very important to seek legal guidance from a skilled and experienced DUI defense lawyer.
