The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-05-21T00:00:30Z Australian surgeon provides Mercy Ships 100,000th free surgical procedure as charity commemorates 40 years 2019-05-21T00:00:30Z australian-surgeon-provides-mercy-ships-100-000th-free-surgical-procedure-as-charity-commemorates-40-years Monday, 20 May 2019: As Mercy Ships commemorates its 40-year legacy, the organisation today marked another major milestone: the 100,000th free surgical procedure provided to a patient in need. Currently docked for a 10-month stay in West African nation of Guinea, these free surgical procedures [1] are performed on board the world’s largest independent hospital ship and used to treat tumours, burns, vision problems, women’s health conditions and childhood orthopaedics, and also include general surgeries. “We’re excited to reach this significant milestone and honoured to be a part of transforming so many lives,” founder Don Stephens said. The 100,000th surgical procedure was a cleft lip correction performed by Australian plastic surgeon David Chong for 7-month-old Aissata on board the hospital ship Africa Mercy. Chong is the current president of the Australasian Cleft Lip and Palate Association and volunteers with Mercy Ships twice a year. “Being part of this milestone is humbling, especially when you think about the incredible legacy that Mercy Ships has built over the past 40 years by healing thousands of patients like Aissata,” Chong said. “So many other volunteers have helped change lives for the better, and I’m proud to contribute to this powerful work.” An estimated 5 billion people do not have access to safe, affordable, timely surgery, and 93 percent of them live in sub-Saharan Africa. [2] Mercy Ships addresses this global surgery crisis by using hospital ships staffed by volunteers in places where surgeons are needed most. These surgeons and medical volunteers on board also train local medical professionals who will stay in their home countries, effecting change long after Mercy Ships departs. Mercy Ships has provided life-changing and life-saving medical care in 56 developing countries. But that’s only part of its commitment to fighting the global surgery crisis. Mercy Ships works to develop a five-year plan to address each nation’s needs before, during and after the hospital ship’s 10-month stay in port, creating a lasting impact. This five-year approach includes significant investment to improve the host nations’ health care systems by training medical professionals and upgrading local facilities. In its 40-year history, Mercy Ships has: Trained over 42,250 local professionals (surgeons, anaesthesiologists, midwives, etc.) Provided services valued at more than $1.53 billion Completed more than 1,100 agricultural and infrastructure development projects, including building or renovating medical and dental clinics “Of the world’s 7.6 billion inhabitants, it is the bottom billion voices that cry to us. The African continent has the highest maternal/infant mortality, lowest life expectancy and has been limited to almost non-existent surgical services. Therefore, Mercy Ships continues to prioritise our African partnerships,” Stephens said. After Mercy Ships completes its fourth visit to Guinea in early June, the Africa Mercy will sail for Senegal in August. END [1] One patient can receive multiple surgical procedures within the types of surgery provided: maxillofacial, plastic reconstructive, women's health, paediatric orthopaedic, ophthalmic and general surgeries. [2] Lancet Commission on Global Surgery About Mercy Ships Mercy Ships uses hospital ships to deliver free, world-class health care services, capacity building and sustainable development aid to those without access in the developing world. Founded in 1978, Mercy Ships has worked in 56 countries providing services valued at more than $1.53 billion, with more than 2.6 million direct beneficiaries. Each year, more than 1,200 volunteers from over 40 nations serve with Mercy Ships. Professionals including surgeons, dentists, nurses, health care trainers, teachers, cooks, seamen, engineers, and agriculturalists donate their time and skills to the effort. Mercy Ships seeks to transform individuals and serve nations one at a time. Mercy Ships Australia is based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

This tech platform called Story Match® will change the way that you receive your story pitches. No more emails, no more press releases and no more hassling PRs (I promise not to be one of those…) First, watch this! In 1.5 minutes it will explain it all to you… Story Match® is a two sided market place App and Desktop platform that allows brands to pitch story ideas to journalists, at the same time allowing journalists to select only what topics of stories they want to receive. Journalists, like you, set up their profile using 6 simple steps. You can select from up to 50 industry tags (food, finance, lifestyle, tech, etc etc) and can localise by State and Territories. If there’s a match on industry tags then you see the pitch. Using swiping technology you can scroll through stories, swipe left if you don’t like the story or right if you do. If you swipe right, it will open an immediate and private chat between you and the person who posted the pitch. The best bit…. The pitches have limitations – so brands can only upload selected images, a headline and up to 500 characters to bring their pitch to life. They then select which industry tag their story is relevant to, and localise it. So now you don’t need to read any more press releases or receive any more pitches that you’re not interested in. Story Match® was developed to improve efficiencies in the media industry, and allow all brands, no matter how big or small the opportunity to get their brand noticed. The tech platform has been developed by Founder and Director of Polkadot Communications Dionne Taylor – who has worked both as a journalist and a PR for the last 15 years. Dionne is available for an interview to chat about this new and exciting platform, built just for YOU! If interested in speaking with Dionne, please get in touch.

The Australian Traditional-Medicine Society (ATMS) welcomes the review and will continue to lobby on behalf of natural medicine practitioners in Australia. Federal Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, MP said in the announcement the review will “assess additional available evidence for natural therapies, undertake public consultation and provide advice to Government on whether certain natural therapies should be eligible for subsidy through the private health insurance rebate.” ATMS plan to contribute to this public review and encourage practitioners and consumers alike to actively participate in the consultation processes once formally announced. After more than a year of campaigning, Charles Wurf, CEO, ATMS, embraces this decision for further review. “We have been vigorously advocating to Government to reconsider the removal of certain natural therapies from the private health insurance rebates. The announcement from Minister Hunt to activate a new review is a good one. ATMS will work closely with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and continue to actively support and promote the return of natural medicine therapies to private health insurance,” said Mr Wurf. ATMS is the leading professional natural medicine association in Australia representing over 10,000 practitioners across more than 20 therapies. -ENDS- The full announcement is available here: https://www.greghunt.com.au/review-of-natural-therapies-for-private-health-insurance/ NOTES TO EDITORS: Interviews and comments are available upon request via the contacts below.

(NYSE: AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, today announced further integration with Google Cloud Contact Centre artificial intelligence (AI) to provide better experiences for customers and a more efficient workforce, taking full advantage of the powerful artificial intelligence capabilities of both companies. Recognised as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Center1, Avaya extends its leadership in leveraging AI to improve customer experience with more personalised, intelligent and insightful interactions. This includes embedding Google’s machine learning within Avaya conversation services powering the contact centre, enabling easy integration of AI capabilities regardless of channel, promoting a consistent and intelligent experience for customers and delivering true omnichannel experiences with AI. Together, Avaya and Google Cloud are providing customers with increased flexibility, efficiency and scalability in deploying powerful and simple communication and collaboration solutions that improve the customer journey. Avaya IX Contact Centre is an AI-enhanced, omnichannel solution including voice, email, chat and mobile communications to make customer engagement a competitive advantage that drives growth and brand preference. Avaya and Google are innovating in a number of key areas, including: Virtual Agents – Human-like automated Bots which seamlessly interact with customers, offloading the live agents’ utilisation until the optimal time and then transferring all context gathered to the agent. Now customers can decide when and how to engage bots throughout the interaction. And the Avaya platform captures the intent, actions and ultimate disposition of each interaction in real-time. Through this rich data, Avaya AI can be applied to decide the next best action in future customer engagement. Agent Assist – Provides superior customer experience by continuously delivering contextually relevant knowledge base to agents based on real time conversational analysis–for BOTH voice and text-based interactions. Avaya AI algorithms can be applied to Google Contact Centre AI to determine the next best action by the agent, delivering the right information and reducing customer friction – while increasing agent satisfaction and contact centre efficiency. Conversational Topic Modelling – An unsupervised learning tool designed to uncover key topic areas that customers have been contacting the contact centre about, and abstracting relevant information relating to how topics are articulated. Google Topic Modelling combined with Avaya AI enables agents to leverage real-time visibility of topics with each conversation turn. Through this valuable insight, recommended responses and best actions can be uniquely tailored to each part of the conversation to drive desired outcomes. Avaya is enhancing the customer experience by strengthening these areas through integration of Google Cloud APIs with key elements of Avaya’s contact centre infrastructure. Additionally, Avaya’s browser-based desktop is designed to easily connect with applications and Google Contact Centre AI is seamlessly incorporated in the agent user experience. “Partnering with Avaya helps us deliver on our goal to make the contact centre experience easier and more efficient,” said Rajen Sheth, Director of Product Management at Google Cloud. “We’re excited to work with Avaya so enterprises can keep customers happy with faster call resolution, and we look forward to building on this partnership as technology and customer’s expectations evolve.” Avaya and Google’s unique collaboration offers a differentiated contact centre solution with a simpler, but more efficient and architecturally superior approach via native gRPC integration for voice. This will enable Avaya IX Contact Centre customers to easily integrate AI providers like Google Cloud and infuse AI capabilities regardless of channel, for consistent omnichannel experiences. Avaya IX Contact Centre solutions are capable of maintaining an awareness of all events, including the sentiment, suggestions and resolution, creating a data lake source for future machine learning processing that generates increasingly impactful results. “We continue to expand our AI-enabled solutions as well as our cloud offerings for customers ranging from small-medium business to the largest global enterprises, and further collaboration with Google is providing additional capabilities to augment the innovation,” said Chris McGugan, Avaya Senior Vice President, Solutions & Technology. “By bringing these innovations to market for Avaya customers and partners, we enable them to make every customer interaction more meaningful and insightful, and more productive for their businesses.” Avaya pioneered the integration of AI capabilities into contact centre communications solutions, and has led development and investment in a number of key areas: Effortless Self-Service: With the power of AI, you can deliver great self-service experiences getting your customer the right information at the right time. Agent Assistance and Productivity: Empower agents with AI-driven guidance, that includes relevant content, suggested next-actions, and real-time coaching to stay ahead of the customer engagement. Smart Matching: Leverage advanced machine learning models to pair the best agent with each customer interaction. Smart Interactions: With powerful AI technologies, you can create smart, conversational interactions that yield improved business results. Empowered Agents: Agents are empowered by AI-driven guidance for content and suggested actions. Summarisation tools help agents expedite after-call processes. Simplified Operations: Reduce complexity for customers and agents alike by using AI models to select a self-service experience, automate a process, or pair with the best possible agent -Ends- The company is showcasing these solutions, and more, at the Avaya booth #1519, Hall D at Enterprise Connect, March 18–21, in Orlando, FL.

ActiPatch® uses electromagnetic pulse therapy to provide long-lasting pain relief. Dr Koneru is the Vice President of Product Development for Bioelectronics and visited Australia to present the clinical evidence behind ActiPatch® at the Australian Pharmacy Conference on the Gold Coast. You can watch Dr Koneru discussing ActiPatch® on Chanel Seven’s Weekend Sunrise here. “The new understanding of chronic pain is that nerves ‘memorise’ the initial pain from injury and over time, become hyperreactive,” Dr Koneru said. “When used over a painful area, ActiPatch’s pulsed signal is absorbed by tissue and disrupts hyperactivity of the nerves, resulting in lasting relief.” Electromagnetic pulse therapy helps to relieve pain from mild osteoarthritis and general musculoskeletal pain in the back, knee, heel and other muscle joints. It is also ideal for strains, sprains and other painful conditions. The therapy is completely sensation free, with no heat, tingling sensations or vibration. ActiPatch® is drug-free and can be safely used with any other medications. A registry studyi of more than 5,000 chronic pain sufferers using ActiPatch® indicated that: • More than 65% per cent reported a clinically meaningful reduction in pain from a wide variety of causes and locations of pain • The average pain reduction reported in these individuals was 57% • The 3-month follow-up showed sustained pain relief, decreased oral analgesic medication use and quality of life improvement. “ActiPatch® uses low-level therapy to allow 24/7 use and, as it doesn’t require skin contact, can be used over bandages and clothing,” said Dr Koneru. “Can also be used by people with metallic implants and when not placed directly over them, electronic devices such as pacemakers/defibrillators.” Mundipharma recently acquired the exclusive Australian and New Zealand distribution rights for ActiPatch®, reinforcing its commitment to the multimodal approach to pain management. This multimodal approach includes cognitive behavioural therapies, physical therapies and pharmacological therapies. “Mundipharma has worked collaboratively with healthcare professionals to provide appropriate access to pain relief over the past 20 years,” said Jane Orr, Managing Director of Mundipharma Australia and New Zealand. “Our work with leading clinicians and reputation as a trusted medical advisor will enable us to help more patients benefit from this therapy.” The results of clinical trials involving ActiPatch® can be found here. Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.

From their headquarters in the Sydney suburb of Greenwich, Hireup powers support worker services for people with disability all over Australia. The Care Provider of the Year awards are a national celebration of Australia's best care providers as voted by users on CareNavigator.com. The awards recognise care providers from over 13,000 listed, who have maintained a consistently perfect rating for the entire year. Joining Hireup, this year's winners also included Queensland's A Positive Being Counselling Service and South Australia's Action Psychology. As an online platform, Hireup is built to revolutionise the way people with disability find, hire and manage support workers by harnessing technology and connecting people with shared interests. Hireup founders Jordan and Laura O’Reilly, grew up alongside a brother with disability. Managing support workers was part of their family routine. Sometimes the support workers were a great fit but more often than not, they weren’t. While at university, Jordan became a disability support worker and learned that not only was the system broken for people with disability but also for support workers. It was with a deep and personal understanding of the disability support work system and the ways it needed to change that Laura and Jordan decided to create Hireup. Since its founding, Hireup has booked over 1.2 million hours of support and claims to have collectively saved users over $9million. Little wonder then that the platform has proved popular with participants in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). In less than 5 years, Hireup has grown to make a huge difference in lives all across Australia. As Hayley, a CareNavigator.com user put it, "Having the freedom, choice and control for us to connect with who we want, and communicate directly with them has allowed such great connections! It’s fantastic that the middle man is cut out, and workers and people seeking support can connect with each other directly. We have had so much more success in support than ever before with a traditional model." Avaya Recognises APAC Region’s Leading Tech Pioneers 2019-02-28T03:46:16Z avaya-recognises-apac-regions-leading-tech-pioneers Bangkok, Thailand – February 28, 2019 – At this week’s Avaya Partner Summit 2019, held in Bangkok, Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA) recognised the leading tech pioneers from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Ten awards were given to Avaya’s leading channel partners from Australia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China at a star-studded gala dinner. The partners were recognised for creating new ideas to inspire in their quests to revolutionise the way that businesses build customer and employee experiences. At the Avaya Partner Summit, Avaya demonstrated its go-to-market transformation strategy for APAC channel partners, who will be able to take advantage of Avaya’s fast-growing ecosystem of technology solutions, alliance partners and channel programs to increment and amplify the value of their Avaya business. “In an increasingly digitised business environment, it is more important than ever for technology companies to collaborate in designing holistic solutions for their customers’ business needs. Today we recognise organisations that share this vision and which are using Avaya’s open communications platforms to innovate, to grow and to deliver additional value to the market,” said Fadi Moubarak, Vice President – Channels, Avaya International. The lion’s share of awards went to channel partners from Australia, Japan and South Korea, speaking volumes about the sophistication of these markets. Many of the winning partners were recognised for implementing truly innovative solutions that redefined their customers’ businesses. For instance, the Australia-based Telstra was honoured for its continued ability to develop the latest, customer-centric innovations on the Avaya Oceana and Equinox platforms. Marubeni Information Systems Co., based in Japan, was awarded for developing its own artificial intelligence (AI) solution enabling voice-based recognition, frequently asked questions and interactive voice response (IVR). Meanwhile, the Korea-based TAK Information Systems Inc. was named Innovation Partner of the Year after deploying an advanced omni-channel call centre – the first of its kind in the country. Avaya also paid homage to the partners most driving cloud growth across the APAC region, where once again Australia and Japan led the field. CTI Solutions, was awarded after it emerged that the company sold over 50 per cent of the PoweredBy seats in Australia last year. And SCSK gained recognition for growing its Avaya cloud business by over 40 per cent last year.

Avaya Introduces Private Cloud delivery of its New Avaya OneCloud UC and CC solutions 2019-01-22T04:21:54Z avaya-introduces-private-cloud-delivery-of-its-new-avaya-onecloud-uc-and-cc-solutions Austin, Texas – Avaya ENGAGE® 2019 – January 21, 2019 - Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA) today introduced a new private cloud delivery model of its Avaya OneCloud solutions for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), providing enterprise organizations with a fast, convenient and automated path to the benefits of cloud communications. The new Avaya OneCloud ReadyNow private cloud offerings feature preconfigured, per-seat consumption and standard bundles of both UCaaS and CCaaS solutions, reducing risk, cost and complexity from the transition to a cloud platform from on-premise solutions. The Avaya OneCloud private offering is being introduced as part of Avaya’s new Avaya Intelligent Xperiences – or Avaya IX - solution naming architecture unveiled this week at the company’s annual ENGAGE user group conference. Based on input from customers and partners, the new nomenclature streamlines the company’s portfolio of solutions and reflects the wealth of experience Avaya brings to bear for customers as they transform digitally and move their solutions into the cloud. With over 3.5 million cloud seats and growing, Avaya brings experience with the full spectrum of business communications in the cloud, leveraging its leading SaaS capabilities. Avaya OneCloud private solutions are customizable, with experts to help design, customize and manage applications that meet unique and often complex digital transformation needs. Many enterprise IT leaders are interested in the benefits of a public cloud offering, such as an opex-based consumption model, flexibility and speed of deployment. Control and security concerns, along with more limited manageability and customization options from upstart cloud CCaaS and UCaaS vendors, however, have slowed adoption for the larger implementations. Avaya is taking a flexible hybrid approach to the cloud with these new solutions to meet the needs of small businesses up to the largest global implementations. “As a top Avaya partner for more than two decades, we’ve seen the company evolve from voice communications to a robust cloud solutions provider, helping clients achieve high levels of flexibility, scalability, and security for a variety of their needs,” said Steven Bernard, Vice President Avaya Sales, Carousel. “We’re excited to see Avaya will now provide our UC and contact center clients with cloud-based bundles for even greater efficiency, as well as the ability to design an environment that supports their desired scalability and consumption needs.” Avaya OneCloud ReadyNow highlights: The easiest path to cloud for established on-premise businesses Standard UC and CC bundles based on highly automated reference architectures to speed builds and deployments.
