GlobalMed | October 19, 2021
GlobalMed, an international provider of telehealth solutions, today announced that its industry leading virtual health platform has earned the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Authority to Operate (ATO) on the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) DHA Medical Community of Interest (Med COI) network.
GlobalMed's virtual health solutions are the first synchronous clinical virtual health technologies awarded an ATO. This much coveted certification enables GlobalMed to integrate their virtual health platform including carts, medical devices, software, and applications directly with the DHA's Med COI network, making their solutions available to integrate with MHS Genesis, the new patient-centric enterprise system designed to provide a single, continuous record of care for all DOD beneficiaries. In addition to providing medical care on the battlefield and at bases overseas (as well as on ships) DHA's network includes 721 military treatment facilities and 174,000 health care personnel, which provide health services to approximately 9.6 million beneficiaries.
"It has always been a personal priority to increase health care access for the members and families of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Space Force and Coast Guard. The Department of Defense is a huge healthcare provider and network security is a high priority. GlobalMed is committed to every aspect of security and compliance throughout our applications having recently completed our SOC 2 Type 2 examination with even more stringent security attestations on our road map. Our commitment to delivering unmatched performance, security and scalability extends beyond our government clients to those in the commercial enterprise space, giving physician groups and non-government hospitals an added measure of reassurance."
Joel E. Barthelemy, CEO and Vice Chairman of GlobalMed and a Marine Corps Reserve Veteran
DHA selected GlobalMed for its HIPAA-compliant virtual telemedicine platform that seamlessly and securely connects healthcare professionals and patients, regardless of location. GlobalMed is also the telehealth provider for the White House Medical Unit and has deployed their solutions across the VA hospitals and extension centers, and other U.S. Departments and Agencies.
GlobalMed powers the world's largest, most advanced virtual health platform that supports a patient at any point in the continuum of care. Providers are enabled with integrative software and data-capturing tools to deliver a complete and accurate patient encounter for evidence-based treatment and improved patient outcomes. Providers looking to manage capacity, reduce costs, and deliver responsible medicine, will get all they need from one platform.
American Primary Aluminum Association | July 06, 2020
Today, the American Primary Aluminum Association (APAA) is responding to new U.S. government data from the U.S. Census Bureau that shows new record levels of unalloyed primary aluminum surging into the United States from Canada. In May, 184,789 metric tons of HTS 7601.10 came in from Canada, a record high since Canada was granted an exemption to the Section 232 program. "At 184,789 metrics tons, this is the highest level of Canadian aluminum imports since the Section 232 program went into place and more than 30% higher than historical average volumes," said Mark Duffy, Chief Executive Officer of the APAA. "The numbers do not lie and tell the true story of the Canadian surge. The unprecedented surge in imports has resulted in hundreds of workers being laid off, a smelter closure, and is threatening the viability of the remaining US industry. Canadian claims that they are not causing harm to US workers and America's primary aluminum industry are simply false."
