New KConnect search services give healthcare the very best in medical information


(PRWEB) April 14, 2015

The new state-of-the-art medical information search services have the ability to empower healthcare and life science professionals and the public alike. The search services can provide the fastest and most relevant medical support information available from which users can make the best-informed decisions.

The intelligent (semantic) search services can incorporate both published medical literature and in-house medical information sources (such as electronic health records or health registries).

“The quality of the search performance can help clinicians and researchers remain at the forefront of their profession. By having the right knowledge about best practices and treatments at their fingertips, clinicians can ensure the very best in patient outcomes and a healthier community”, says Professor Robert Stewart, Department of Psychological Medicine, King’s College London.

Intelligent search for better user experience

The search services have been made ‘intelligent’ by understanding the meaning/context/intent of user queries. The very best in medical information is made more findable by the fact that the semantic search is not just based on query keywords but also on related concepts and contexts.

The user search box has the ability to understand keyword connotations, related concepts and their relationships within a medical context. Such machine comprehension is also employed in the ‘reading’ (indexing, classifying and annotating) of medical content so that the most relevant information can be found even if a user’s chosen keyword happens to be absent within the text.

Search global medical information in any language

The accurate language mapping of key medical concepts allows users to search in their own language (currently there are several European languages available with more to follow). The addition of machine translation means that information can be provided either in English or the source’s original language.

Building blocks for tailored medical services

Individually created components and toolkits mean that an organisation can tailor its search driven

medical solutions according to its own requirements. There are several tailoring options available including information sources, access (cloud or local installation), language, security, functionality (alerts, recommendations and social search) and whether the created solution is either standalone or embedded.

Partnership opportunities

Due to the expected demand for its services, KConnect is looking to extend its Professional

Service Community
by looking for new partners to help with the quick and wider adoption of

its services.

Best Drug Rehabilitation Gives Back to the Community Through Local Habitat for Humanity


Manistee, Michigan (PRWEB) April 13, 2015

On Saturday, March 28, 2015, a volunteer team comprised of staff and patients from Best Drug Rehabilitation, an open-ended results-based substance abuse recovery center, helped out the local Manistee, MI chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The team members removed and transported furniture that was donated to Habitat for Humanity, which will be used to help local families in need, to a storage facility for future use.

“The recovery program at Best Drug Rehabilitation focuses intently on learning how to give back to the community,” commented Veronica Johnson, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s Executive Director. “Through various forms of volunteer work, such as the help that our team gave to Habitat for Humanity today, we are able to give positive reinforcement to some of those concepts that our treatment program tries to instill in our patients. Additionally, the feeling that we get when we help others in need is a great morale booster for everyone that participates.”

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that aims to provide affordable quality housing to those in need. The majority of construction is accomplished through volunteer efforts, such as the help given by the Best Drug Rehabilitation staff and patients, and the bulk of funding is provided through corporate donations and the housing recipients’ mortgage payments, which go directly back into the Habitat account to help pay for additional construction. A minimal amount of these funds are used for administrative costs.

“Part of the Best Drug Rehabilitation philosophy is getting rid of the old selfish ways of thinking,” said BDR’s founder and CEO Per Wickstrom. “By offering their time, effort and compassion in helping out those families in need, our patients are not only doing the community a great service, but are also making great strides on their individual paths to recovery from addiction.”

Latest Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Post Focuses on Opiate Abuse Facts


(PRWEB) July 23, 2014

In its latest blog post, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is focusing on a topic that is quickly becoming among the most important of all drug and addiction-related dialogues: opiate abuse facts.

The Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post on opiate abuse facts highlights:


An overview of opiates, and why they’re considered “the mother of all Schedule II drugs”
The two most commonly abused types of opiates: morphine and codeine
Common misconceptions between opiates and opioids

“Opiates are among the most addictive and dangerous drugs available today,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Tragically, many individuals — especially young people – have no idea what they’re getting into when they experiment with opiates. They think that they can remain in control, but it’s a delusion. Before long, many of them are doctor shopping, stealing pills from family members and friends, and living the painful, often unbearable life of an addict that typically, if untreated, winds up in the emergency ward, in jail, or in the morgue.”

Added Per Wickstrom: “However, as I noted, treatment is the best and, frankly, the only answer for addicts. With the right kind of medical care, combined with compassionate support, they can not only break free of their addiction and get sober, but they can living a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life than they ever dreamed possible!”

New Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Post Asks: What are the Most Addictive Painkillers?


(PRWEB) April 08, 2014

Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is asking a critically important and timely question in its latest blog post: What are the most additive painkillers?

“Many people still believe that drug abuse and drug addiction only refer to illicit drugs, such as cocaine, heroin and so on,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, there is a prescription drug abuse problem happening in our country that is, without question, of epidemic proportions, and affecting people from all walks of like, and of all ages – from children to seniors.”

According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, opioids remain the most abused prescription painkillers. Opioids relieve pain by minimizing the pain signals in the brain, plus they can create a feeling of euphoria. However, the body requires more and more of the drug to achieve a desired state of physical and emotional wellness, which is what leads to a spiralling path of addiction. Some commonly used – and unfortunately, commonly abused – opioids include (but is not limited to):


Vicodin
Methadone
Dilaudid
Duragesic
Demerol
Percoce
Propoxyphene
Oxymorphone
Oxycodone HCL
Meperidine
Hydromorphone
Bitartrate
Fentanyl
Hydrocodone

Added Per Wickstrom: “Individuals who are addicted or are concerned that they may be heading down that road can get the professional, compassionate help they need through inpatient treatment programs. Their family members and loved ones who desperately want to help an addict can also call a qualified and certified treatment facility to learn how they can be part of the solution.”

(PRWEB) February 20, 2015

“It’s difficult and sometimes even impossible for loved ones of an addict to understand, but no matter what they may say or do, individuals who are suffering from addiction are truly in pain and spiraling downwards on a daily basis,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “It’s our hope that these resources on our website will help individuals who may have a problem, and especially their family members and other loved ones, learn about the facts, symptoms and treatment methods available before it’s too late.”

Man Speaks Out on His Experience with Best Drug Rehabilitation Program


Manistee, Michigan (PRWEB) April 11, 2015

Located in Manistee, MI, Best Drug Rehabilitation takes a very different approach to recovery from substance abuse. By offering options in the treatment of addiction, the Best Drug Rehabilitation recovery program is effective for anybody who needs help in overcoming addiction, even those who have made previous attempts at recovery.

“I, myself, went to four different treatment centers and I never got it right,” comments Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Each treatment center only had one modality or trademark or type of treatment, and it didn’t work for me. When I sat down with Best Drug Rehabilitation, I decided ‘Let’s give an individual a choice to find out what actually works for the individual’, instead of me or some other treatment center or some counselor telling him how he’s got to get sober.”

How Patient Stephen Got Sober Through Best Drug Rehabilitation

The program at Best Drug Rehabilitation has been successful for many patients where other treatment centers have failed. Stephen R. from Glendale Heights, IL, said in an interview that he had been to over a dozen treatment programs and was unimpressed with the results that he had been getting.

“I was looking for something different, and this was the answer,” Stephen said in that same interview, a video of which can be seen on the recovery center’s YouTube channel. “I’m glad I came. This helped to give me the courage and the ability and the tools to face life head-on.”

In the treatment of drug abuse and alcoholism, Best Drug Rehabilitation allows the patients there to create a personalized program, with guidance from the professional substance abuse counselors and case managers, helping them to realize the personal responsibility that they have in their successful recovery. It also leads to a more effective program that fits the needs of the individual patient, which, in turn, leads to a lower relapse rate. The directors of Best Drug Rehabilitation believe that there are more ways than one to reach the goal of living a drug and alcohol free lifestyle.

Best Drug Rehabilitation Helps Pennsylvania Musician to Overcome Addiction


Manistee, Michigan (PRWEB) April 06, 2015

Best Drug Rehabilitation, an open-ended, holistic, results-based substance abuse treatment center located in Manistee, MI, sees patients from all over the country, with different backgrounds and cultural identities. Recently, a young musician from Pennsylvania, Cody C., found his way to the recovery facility, seeking help in his struggle with addiction to opiates.

“Addiction does not discriminate against any race, religion, occupation or gender,” comments Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Likewise, addiction is not bound by geography. Addiction can take anybody. And, so, we also take anybody. Our program, which is adaptable to the needs of any person, is effective for anybody that needs help with the fight against their addiction.”

The treatment program at Best Drug Rehabilitation has many options that the patients can choose from, with guidance from the professional substance abuse treatment counselors and case managers employed there. The result is a personalized program that addresses the physical and psychological aspects of drug and alcohol abuse and also helps the patient to realize the personal responsibilities that they hold in life and in their recovery. Of all of the options that Cody C. selected, Music Therapy was his favorite, which is understandable since he is already a very talented singer and songwriter.

About Best Drug Rehabilitation’s Music Program

“I came to this place because they have a music program,” Cody says in an interview, a video of which was recently released by Best Drug Rehabilitation. “I thought I was more creative when I was high, but that’s not very true. I wrote more songs in the time that I’ve been here than I have in my entire life.”

Even as far as Pennsylvania, California, Florida, and every corner of the country, Best Drug Rehabilitation reaches its hand out to welcome anyone who might be struggling to overcome an addiction. The effective program and the caring, compassionate staff at the recovery center make all of the patients there, no matter where they are from, feel as if they have come home.
