NorthShore provides real time genomic decision support to 10,000 patients using the ActX Service

Our vision has always been to provide easy-to-use genomic decision support, with the goal that it would one day become a standard in patient care. I am elated that NorthShore shares this vision.

For many years, NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) has been one of the leaders in personalized medicine. In 2016, they implemented ActX Genomic Decision Support inside Epic. Now, NorthShore has partnered with ActX to complete their largest genomics program to date.

NorthShore has taken an additional 10,000 patients through genetic testing as part of the DNA-10K initiative. Once genetic testing was completed, the discrete genetic data was loaded into the ActX platform and made available in Epic, NorthShore’s electronic health record. Prescriptions for select medications ordered inside Epic are checked in real time against the patient’s genetics, and the clinician is alerted if there are issues with side effects, efficacy, or dosing, all in routine Epic workflow. A genomic profile for each patient is built into the Epic medical chart.

DNA-10K has already seen tremendous success, with 99% of NorthShore’s eligible physicians ordering tests for their patients. In an internal survey of physicians who ordered the test for their patients, more than half said the program has already provided a direct clinical benefit to their patients. Plus, 99.8% of tested patients had at least one actionable finding associated with pharmacogenomics, which could become relevant later in life (as new prescriptions are needed).

“At NorthShore our goal is to ensure every patient who can benefit from pharmacogenomics will benefit from it no matter where they are receiving care in the system. We continue to progress on this goal as a part of the Mark R. Neaman Center for Personalized Medicine. ActX has been a key partner to drive pharmacogenomics data into clinical care,” said Mark Dunnenberger, PharmD, director of personalized medicine and pharmacogenomics at NorthShore.

“The ActX platform helps make genomics actionable, a key part of which is pharmacogenomics, in everyday medical practice,” said Dr. Andrew Ury, CEO of ActX. “Our vision has always been to provide easy-to-use genomic decision support, with the goal that it would one day become a standard in patient care. I am elated that NorthShore shares this vision, and we are thrilled to be a part of their genomics program.”

About ActX

ActX is the industry leader in EHR-integrated precision medicine. Our service helps physicians make better decisions about medical treatment, using a patient’s genetic information to guide therapy. The ActX Genomic Service offers proven, tightly integrated, real-time genomic decision support for medication orders and actionable genomic risks, a built in patient Genomic Profile, and the ability to fully customize content.

As medications are ordered, and before the prescription is finalized, medications are checked against the patient’s genetics for efficacy, adverse reactions, and dosing. Extensive evidence based and actionable content is provided as default, customizable content, covering hundreds of genes. You can easily suppress any content or interactions, or add or modify content. The ActX Genomic Service is live at numerous Epic customers. For more information, visit, email or call 888-998-2289.

New Mindfulness App Designed for Teachers Launches to Support Educators Amid Crisis

JabuMind Logo

The current crisis of COVID-19 has brought to light the intense demands on teachers’ time and the emotional load they carry.

Newport Beach, CA-based education technology company JabuMind LLC announced the official release of their mobile meditation app specifically designed for teachers and educators. Based on the scientifically proven Integrative Restoration (iRest®) method, JabuMind brings meditations and mindfulness courses directly to teachers’ fingertips via a mobile device for effective self-care tools accessible throughout their day. The iRest® method is used for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and is listed by the US Army Surgeon General as a Tier 1 approach for addressing Pain Management. It is proven to reduce stress levels, improve quality of sleep, and is effective to help individuals overcome anxiety and depression. The app is specifically designed around a teacher’s day and includes a tracker for sleep and emotions, empowering users to see their own mind-body connection daily. Due to the extreme pressures of remote learning and COVID-19, JabuMind is offering the basic version of the app free of charge for download in the App Store and on Google Play through August 2020.

The app was developed by Co-Founder Jill A. Manly, a Certified iRest® Teacher. Manly is an award-winning author of children’s books and an educator. She has taught and been involved in Social and Emotional (SEL) curriculum and development around the world. Manly’s first-hand experience of the emotional load of teachers is also as a mother of four adult and teenage children, with varying degrees of special learning needs, who collectively have been taught by 180+ teachers over the years. She was inspired to give back to teachers to help with their social and emotional development via accessible self-care tools and the restorative iRest® method for mindfulness.

Carolyn Grabiel, M.A. and Ann Rankowitz, MSW, LCSW, CPC round out the JabuMind Leadership Team. Grabiel has a background in clinical psychology and business. She has served leadership roles on parent/faculty boards, and taught high-school track & cross country. Rankowitz is a licensed clinical social worker and certified professional life coach. She has held high-level positions in non-profits and has worked with education administration to place social workers throughout districts. Together their wealth of knowledge of the education space and their passion to support teachers’ own social and emotional growth led them to start JabuMind.

“The current crisis of COVID-19 has brought to light the intense demands on teachers’ time and the emotional load they carry. We began this project before the crisis because we believe teachers deserve more support in their own social-emotional needs. Teachers have always been first responders who have been under-appreciated and over-worked. The nature of their profession, along with the complex trauma many children in their classrooms experience, puts them at risk of secondary trauma, which puts them under a tremendous amount of stress. We are here to support teachers with accessible tools so they can focus on their own self-care and, in turn, support their students and school communities,” said Jill Manly, Co-Founder.

Studies have shown that teaching is considered one of the most stressful professions. Teachers who support the well-being and learning of students are more likely to experience chronic stress, including burnout and compassion fatigue. As the nation and world have focused on developing SEL curriculum for students, recent studies have shown the teachers have been left behind. The JabuMind app addresses teachers’ needs, along with supporting professional development, with enhanced accessibility.

Erin Swanson is a former elementary school teacher with a Master’s in Education from Stanford University and is the Co-Founder of RAISE Programs, a social emotional program for children and their families. Erin says, “Teachers today are overworked, short on time, and emotionally and physically depleted. JabuMind’s meditations are short enough for every teacher to fit into a busy schedule, are deeply soothing, and are targeted at teachers’ unique challenges. When I used the meditations, I immediately felt relaxed and cared for. I firmly believe that mindfulness is the most transformative practice for teachers and have seen the benefits in my own teaching. Teachers set the tone for the energy of the whole classroom. When a teacher becomes calm, grounded, and centered, the students will as well. JabuMind is an excellent tool that all teachers need to rediscover the joy of teaching and preserve their health and energy.”

With the JabuMind App Teachers Will Learn:

  • Techniques and tools to practice mindfulness meditation and integrate mindfulness into their daily life
  • Methods for meeting and navigating intense emotions
  • Ways to improve communication and interactions with students, peers and others
  • How to cultivate positive states of mind like gratitude, kindness, joy, and compassion, along with ways in which to reduce stress levels, feelings of overwhelm, frustration, anxiety, and depression.
  • Ways to improve restful sleep and relaxation

To download the app, visit the JabuMind website for direct links to the App Store and Google Play. The basic version is free for individual users through August 2020.

Innovo Detox, a MARC Treatment Center, opens in Pennsylvania

News Image

We offer vital, lifesaving, life-sustaining detox and medical stabilization services and help patients begin their journey of recovery

Innovo Detox, a MARC Treatment Center, has opened it’s doors in Pennsylvania, serving patients since March 16, 2020. A new, freestanding healthcare facility, Innovo Detox will offer detox, withdrawal management, and medical stabilization services for individuals suffering from addiction, substance use disorder, and co-occurring disorders in the local community, from the state of Pennsylvania, and throughout the Mid-Atlantic and surrounding areas.

Innovo Detox has common ownership with Maryland Addiction Recovery Center (MARC), a nationally recognized extended care addiction treatment facility located in Towson, Maryland. However, as a separate organization, will operate independently in order to greater serve those in need, the local community, and partner organizations within the behavioral healthcare field.

“We have always believed that any new organization should fill a substantial need,” Innovo Detox Co-Founder and CEO Sam Bierman said. “We certainly knew that there is a need for these types of comprehensive medical and therapeutic services due to the ongoing addiction epidemic. We also know there was a lack of freestanding detox options throughout the area. So Innovo Detox will be able to support individuals and families in those first days of seeking recovery.”

Innovo Detox will operate with 24 hour medical staff, provide ongoing clinical programming through it’s clinical staff, and 24 hour support through it’s recovery support staff and admissions teams. Addiction is a chronic illness, and detox and stabilization is traditionally the first step someone will take to access care. Once stable, Innovo Detox’ staff will support each patient onto the next appropriate step in treatment, facilitating a vital continuum of care to support long-term, sustainable recovery.

Innovo Detox ownership has tapped Molly Ashcroft to assume the role of Executive Director of the new facility. An experienced professional in the behavioral health and addiction treatment space for over a decade, Molly will be tasked to lead the new facility to provide the highest quality of patient care through the latest in evidence-based medical and therapeutic approaches.

“I am extremely excited and proud to be sitting as the Executive Director of Innovo Detox,” stated Molly Ashcroft, CADC. “We offer vital, lifesaving, life-sustaining detox and medical stabilization services and help patients begin their journey of recovery. I feel inspired each day by our team of medical professionals, clinical professionals, and administrative staff that show up day in and day out to help those that are seeking a new way of life.”

In an effort to make these vital services more accessible and affordable, Innovo Detox is already an in-network provider for Geisinger Health Plan, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, and associated Blue Card Member plans.

New Age Billboard Charting Artist Releases Single EP to Help Adults Relax, Unwind and De-stress.

In the world today, while so many people are financially stressed, quarantined, or homeschooling children, finding a few minutes to just zone out is more important than ever.

Next generation New Age musical artist Bryan Wisda and Zezz Music Ltd. announce the release of his first follow-up single since the debut of his chart-topping album, ADHD Lullaby. The new track, Down Time, is designed to help adults by scientifically inducing relaxation and relieving stress. The release will be available worldwide on May 15th, 2020.

In 2019, Wisda debuted ADHD Lullaby, which used a patent-pending music methodology based upon the principles of neuroscience. The order of the songs, musical tension, and tempo all served to help children with ADHD fall asleep faster and stay asleep through the night. ADHD Lullaby was named the No. 8 New Age Album of 2019 by Billboard Magazine after spending 25 weeks on the chart, peaking at No. 2. The album was endorsed by ADHD expert, Dr. Edward Hallowell.

Now Wisda has created music to help adults relax. Down Time employs the same patent-pending methodology and was recorded specifically to help adults unwind and de-stress. The song runs slightly longer than the ideal power nap, which is around 20 minutes according to the National Sleep Foundation.

Down Time is available for digital purchase and streaming worldwide on all the major digital music services including Amazon Music, Spotify, YouTube, and iTunes.

Wisda is among the next generation of New Age artists expanding upon the influence of ambient music pioneers like Brian & Roger Eno, Harold Budd, and William Basinski. He focuses on pairing music with neuroscience, which he calls ‘Functional Sound,’ to help people in a variety of ways.

“After releasing ADHD Lullaby, I received hundreds of messages via social media from parents asking me to produce a song/album specific to adults,” stated Wisda. “I spent almost a year recording and producing Down Time. The complexities of recording a 25-minute track using my methodology proved difficult, yet so rewarding. I am very proud of the final song and believe it will truly help people find some much needed respite from their crazy lives.”

Wisda continued, “In the world today, while so many people are financially stressed, quarantined, or homeschooling children, finding a few minutes to just zone out is more important than ever.”

Worcester Polytechnic Institute Researchers Awarded National Science Foundation Grant to Measure Stress in College Students and Impact on Learning During Pandemic

Shichao Liu

Shichao Liu

“I realized that if the students are stressed, how could they pay attention to what I was talking about?”– Shichao Liu, Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) researchers with expertise in fields ranging from psychology to architectural engineering will use a $199,999 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study how the novel coronavirus global pandemic is affecting stress in college students and their ability to learn in remote settings.

The research is notable because it will be done during a real pandemic and gather data about the real strains felt by students, said Shichao Liu, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, who is the principal investigator of the one-year project.

“We have to do this research now, because the conditions are ephemeral, and our students are stressed during this critical time,” Liu said. “We can’t do this research at another time or simulate a pandemic in a laboratory.”

The NSF awarded the grant through its Rapid Response Research (RAPID) process, which focuses on proposed projects that need quick access to data and resources, and research that responds to disasters and unanticipated events.

Co-PIs on the grant are Soroush Farzin Moghadam, assistant teaching professor of architectural engineering; Angela Rodriguez, assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience; Steven Van Dessel, associate professor of architectural engineering; and Jacob Whitehill, assistant professor of computer science and of learning sciences and technologies. Two PhD candidates and two WPI undergraduates will be part of the research team, which will work remotely and via virtual meetings.

“This project will provide insights into how college students are coping with a purely distance-learning format, without immediate contact with or support from their peers or professors,” Whitehill said. “It will shed light into how students’ emotional trajectories and academic outcomes are affected by the short- and long-term effects of the novel coronavirus.”

Liu conceived of the research as WPI, like other universities across the country, switched to remote operations earlier this year. He, Van Dessel, and Whitehill had recently launched NSF-funded research on how classroom physical environments impact undergraduate learning. Then, as he began teaching remotely while home with his wife and two small children, Liu felt stressed. His students also told him about the emotions they were feeling while quarantined at home, worrying about sick relatives, and missing their college friends.

“I realized that if the students are stressed, how could they pay attention to what I was talking about? How could they finish their homework on time?” Liu said. “Teachers may feel stressed outside the traditional classroom, but students are more vulnerable than instructors. One possible stressor on students’ learning comes from a poor physical environment while learning at home. Factors such as elevated noise, insufficient lighting, little access to outdoor sunlight due to social distancing, or even smoke from cooking activities may contribute to stress in college students, distraction, and impaired learning performance.”

The researchers plan to recruit WPI undergraduates to voluntarily participate in the study during the university’s three remaining academic terms this calendar year. Participants will fill out questionnaires and keep diaries of their activities. To measure student engagement, the researchers will use computer vision algorithms to analyze students’ facial expressions during remote classes. In addition, one group of students will wear wristband computing devices to record and track their heart rates and other physiological signals.

“We all want to see our lives return to something approximating ‘normal,’” said Rodriguez. “This is especially strongly felt by college students across the nation who have had to shift their entire learning experience to a virtual platform with almost no preparation. But in order to get back to a traditional learning experience and achieve ideal learning outcomes, we have to understand how the pandemic affected these things in the first place. We must understand the magnitude of the impact so that we can track the recovery toward normal.”

The project’s researchers possess expertise in architectural engineering, psychology, computer science, and learning sciences, reflecting WPI’s strategy to create interdisciplinary teams to address COVID-19 research challenges, said Provost Winston Soboyejo.

“I am delighted to learn about the success of the RAPID grant application by Shichao Liu, Soroush Farzin Moghadam, Angela Rodriguez, Steven Van Dessel, and Jacob Whitehill,” Soboyejo said. “This is a great example of timely interdisciplinary collaboration that will provide much needed insights into how our students adapt and learn in the era of the COVID-19 crisis.”

About Worcester Polytechnic Institute

WPI, the global leader in project-based learning, is a distinctive, top-tier technological university founded in 1865 on the principle that students learn most effectively by applying the theory learned in the classroom to the practice of solving real-world problems. Recognized by the National Academy of Engineering with the 2016 Bernard M.
