?PS ? The New Clean? Wins Retailer Award for Best New Product of the Year

‘PS – The New Clean’ Wins Retailer Award for Best New Product of the Year










Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 14, 2006

Retail grocers have recognized an innovative, germ-fighting hand spray (made by St. Petersburg, Florida-based American HomeHealth) with the ‘Retailer Choice’ Award in the Health and Beauty category at the annual Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Trade Show.

PS was launched earlier this year with a humorous ad during the Super Bowl and is currently being advertised on Oprah, Dr. Phil, Martha, and The Price is Right. The PS brand consists of a complete line of hospital-grade infection prevention products including hand soaps and sanitizers, and surface disinfectants. These products were adapted from the formulae used in hospitals and by doctors and dentists multiple times each day between patients as protection from copious strains of harmful bacteria. The surface disinfectants and wipes are effective against MRSA, Staph, and TB. AHH adapted the hospital product for home-use with a convenient Twizz-Top (spray cap and twist lock), the only hand sanitizer available to consumers by spray application. The hand spray contains the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride, an antimicrobial.

“PS appeals to the ‘Security Mom,’ the modern-day version of the traditional soccer mom, a busy woman who wants to keep her home as germ-free as possible for her active family,” said Ruly Lora, Chairman and CEO. “PS is reformulated with fragrance and repackaged for the consumer market with the industrial strength used by healthcare professionals.” Lora noted that new scents will be available in 2007.

Food Marketing Institute conducts programs in research, education, industry relations and public affairs on behalf of its 1,500 member companies – food retailers and wholesalers – in the United States and around the world. FMI’s U.S. members operate approximately 26,000 retail food stores with a combined annual sales volume of $ 340 billion – three-quarters of all retail food store sales in the United States. FMI’s retail membership is composed of large multi-store chains, regional firms and independent supermarkets. Its international membership includes 200 companies from 50 countries. More information is available at http://www.FMI.org.

PS is widely available to consumers in all 50 states at retail chains such as Target and Publix. General information is available at http://www.PStheNewClean.com.

Best in Class Health Care Fraud Solutions from Thomson Reuters and i-Sight

Best in Class Health Care Fraud Solutions from Thomson Reuters and i-Sight











i-Sight Case Management Software for health care fraud investigations.

Ottawa, Canada (Vocus) September 9, 2010

Today, Customer Expressions Corp. announced that the company will be co-exhibiting at upcoming health care fraud conferences with Thomson Reuters. With the signing of the Universal Health Care Bill in the US earlier this year, health care fraud and payment recapture have become main priorities for both the federal government and industry leaders. It has been reported that payment recapture initiatives are expected to put at least $ 2 billion over the next three years back into taxpayer pockets.

Thomson Reuters has developed best in class solutions for health care fraud detection, abuse and waste, while the i-Sight Case Management Software is a best in class solution for managing health care fraud investigations. The cutting edge solutions offered by both companies raise the bar in health care fraud prevention, detection and investigation.

In the coming months, members from i-Sight and Thomson Reuters will join together to attend a series of health care fraud conferences throughout North America. Some of the topics addressed at each of the conferences include how to conduct health care fraud investigations, international examples of health care fraud, medical identity theft and the impact of health care fraud on society and the health care industry itself.

Ray Gerard, President at Customer Expressions stated, “Health care fraud is an epidemic. In 2009 alone, an estimated $ 54 billion was lost due to improper Medicare and Medicaid payments. As efforts to tighten health care fraud controls in the US are put into place, technology and software solutions, including i-Sight Case Management Software, help identify repeat offenders and improve investigations into health care fraud allegations.”

Here is a list of upcoming health care fraud conferences that we will be attending with the Thomson Reuters team:


The 26th Annual NAMPI Conference, hosted by the National Association for Medicaid Program Integrity. The conference takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana from September 12-15.
Raise the Ante Against Health Care Fraud is the theme of this year’s Annual Conference held by the Canadian Health Care Antifraud Association. The conference takes place on September 14th and 15th in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
The 2010 NASMD Fall Conference, held by the National Association of State Medicaid Directors, from November 8-10 in Arlington Virginia.
The National Health Care Antifraud Association’s (NHCAA) Annual Training Conference. The conference is held in Las Vegas Nevada from November 16-19.
