Sunrise Children's Services Adopts Telehealth Program Powered by CoroCall HIPAA Compliant Videoconferencing

MT WASHINGTON, KY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- CoroWare, Inc. (OTCQB: COWI) (OTCQB: COWIE) announced today that Sunrise Children's Services is delivering secure online video consultations and counseling services that is powered by CoroCall HIPAA Compliant Videoconferencing™.

Asking for help is difficult for most people, but can be overwhelmingly challenging to those with the greatest need. For patients living a great distance from the nearest clinic, impaired by illness or immobility, or experience extreme anxiety in meeting face-to-face, secure video conferencing eases the hardship of seeking medical and mental health care. Improving accessibility to life-changing care, Sunrise Children's Services has selected CoroCall HIPAA Compliant Videoconferencing for delivering secure video consultations and counseling services.

The HIPAA Security Rule protects the privacy of individual health information and sets national standards for the security of electronic records. Any failure to meet existing guidelines can result in monetary penalties, up to $11,000 per violation. A recent Oklahoma ruling for recurring non-compliance resulted in a medical license suspension, as well as a two-year probationary period.

"We chose CoroCall because of the audio and video quality, ease of use and customer support," said Kenny Williams, Vice President of Community-Based Services for Sunrise. "With CoroCall, services are made more affordable to the children and families we care for. Their privacy is protected because CoroCall is secure and HIPAA compliant."

CoroCall, the video conferencing business unit of CoroWare, is a scalable video communications and collaboration platform built upon Vidyo™ technology. This high definition video conferencing cloud service is available anytime and anywhere on tablet devices (iPad™ and Android™), Smartphones (iPhone™ and Android), and desktop platforms (Windows™, Macintosh™, Linux™).

According to Dr. Marlene Maheu of the TeleMental Health Institute, the market for telehealth is escalating rapidly. She cites a recent study by Deloitte -- Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Predictions 2014 -- which predicts that in calendar year 2014, there could be up to 75 million telehealth visits in North America, representing 25% of the addressable market.

"We are very pleased that Sunrise chose CoroCall to deliver online video consultations and counseling services," said Lloyd Spencer, president and CEO of CoroWare. "Sunrise clients will benefit from the experience of knowing their counseling sessions are conducted in a secure and confidential manner."

CoroCall offers the most flexible pricing plans in the videoconferencing industry because CoroWare integrated its highly scalable and affordable cloud-based billing solution with Vidyo's award winning software based video communications and collaboration platform. In addition, CoroCall supports videoconference recording and webcasting so that online video counseling companies can record and webcast counselor training sessions.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
