ONE IN 50 KIDS HAS AUTISM:

These are some dramatic numbers: one in 50 American schoolchildren has autism, meaning at least 1 million children are affected by the disorder, according to a government survey of parents. Health officials cautioned that the numbers reflect that autism is diagnosed more frequently—especially since it is diagnosed not through blood tests but by psychiatrists—but not necessarily that it is occurring more often. The latest study by the Centers for Disease Control is considered more accurate than the earlier figure of one in 88 schoolchildren because this study cast a far wider outreach, although fewer than a quarter of parents contacted agreed to answer the questions.

GTX Corp (GTXO) wants to keep you connected to who and what matters most. If you have a child with Autism, check out our products that can provide peace of mind to you and your family. Click Here for more information on our Alertags and Here for more information on our GPS Shoes.

GTX Corp and Community Care RX are Modernizing Health Care and Pharmacy Services Providing a Positive Impact on the Quality of Care Delivered to Residents



Los Angeles, California March 13, 2013- Code Amber AlertagTM, a GTX Corp business unit GTX Corp(GTXO),along with Community Care RX, which provides pharmacy services to long term care facilities throughout New York and Long Island, recently started working together to implement the Alertag Personal Health Record platform into their processes. This fortuitous collaboration will result with an initial rollout for 1,000 residents and a custom Community Care branded web portal scheduled for delivery and launch next month. With the Alertag direct interface to RX providers, GTX automates the Alertag database whenever a resident's medication changes or is updated which facilitates and accelerates the treatment and care of those in need, while increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

“We decided to utilize the medical Alertag because we are in the business of saving lives. Community Care Rx is the first LTC (Long Term Care) pharmacy to implement the Alertag Personal Health Record platform into our processes. We believe that having the updated medical information through the Alertag direct interface database whenever a resident is in an emergency setting will help the medical provider with vital medical history. Including emergency point of contact, medication and medication interaction, allergies, medical history for residents suffering from Alzheimer's, Anemia, Asthma, Autism, Dementia, Diabetes, Epileptic Seizures, Mental Impairment and host of other conditions,” said Hossam A. Maksoud Community Care CEO.
In furtherance of its mission, GTX Corp’s seamless interface between RX providers and patients that automatically updates the Alertag database whenever a resident's medication changes or a new prescription is filled follows the current trends in healthcare data management. As Dr. Michael Swiernik, UCLA Director of Medical Information has recently stated, "A big part of where the government is going is to try to make the data flow more freely amongst providers and hospitals so that your data goes with you instead of staying with the hospital or doctor.”

GTX Corp is positioning itself at the forefront of this emerging Personal Health Record (“PHR”) market, which is being bolstered by the Government’s mandate to modernize data management and shift the ownership of health records back to the individual. In fact, the Federal Government has recently budgeted $19.2B of stimulus money to help defray the cost of this modernization.

“We are excited about our new partnership with Community Care RX and look forward to helping them implant our cost saving PHR platform,” stated Bryant Harper President of the Code Amber Alertag business unit.

The Company has already identified dozens of facilities that operate in a manner similar to Community Care RX that can benefit from implementing this patent-pending solution and with an annual cost of less than thirty dollars per resident, the value proposition of this product and service is readily evident to these types of institutions and creates a stream of recurring revenues for the Company.

Similar to a loyalty card you might receive from a local supermarket, the Alertag features a QR code that grants immediate access to vital medical history. When the QR code is scanned by a Smartphone or any electronic device with scanning capability, a link will open showing the Alertag holder’s general medical history.

In addition to medical facilities utilizing the Alertag system, individuals suffering from ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer's, diabetes, anemia, asthma, Autism, dementia,  allergies, epileptic seizures, mental impairment, and many other conditions, will benefit from having an Alertag, hence the broader appeal and marketability of the Alertag system to the general consumer.

The Digital Health Record Is Here

A cure for chronic paperwork.
 
It's easy to make the case for personal electronic health records: a health care system in which everyone has his or her full medical history in a digital format, stored securely in the cloud, where it's always accessible and readily shareable. Such a system would deliver quicker, safer, and higher-quality care than our current system, in which medical histories sprawl piecemeal in scribbled notes locked away in doctors' offices, hospitals, labs, and pharmacies. Consolidate the data in a single record, and there will be fewer errors, less redundant paperwork, fewer unnecessary appointments, and better coordination among providers, patients, and the family members who help care for them.

What's hard, it turns out, is building an electronic health record, or EHR, that people will actually use. Just ask Mohammad Al-Ubaydli. When the doctor/programmer founded the U.K.-based EHR company Patients Know Best four years ago, he had three main competitors: Google, Microsoft, and Britain's National Health Service. Google and the NHS have since pulled the plug; Microsoft's HealthVault hobbles on, although many analysts question how much more effort the software giant will put into the project.

But Al-Ubaydli believes he can succeed. "The big challenge is in lining up everyone," says Al-Ubaydli. "Google and Microsoft thought only patients mattered, so they built a product that was only usable by patients. A patient gets really excited about Google Health, spends three hours entering their data manually, then tries to show their doctor, and the doctor refuses to use it with them. That patient will never again use Google Health." Patients Know Best, by contrast, has been designed to be useful for patients and clinicians, he says. Another key challenge: trust. "Google and Microsoft spent a long time trying to convince people that they would not misuse, resell, or advertise around the data," says Al-Ubaydli. "Not many people believed them." Patients Know Best encrypts all data so that only the patient and whomever the patient chooses can decrypt it.

To get started with Patients Know Best, patients ask an institution, like a hospital network, to transfer their data into a personal account. From then on, the patient controls the record and can invite other providers to collaborate, adding reports, lab results, information on medications, and the like. It's free for patients. Hospitals and doctors in private practice pay subscription fees. "The hospitals pay, because by working with patients in this way, they either save money through efficiencies or make money by attracting more patients with better customer service," says Al-Ubaydli.

Patients Know Best is just getting started: About 20 hospitals in the U.S. and the U.K. use the platform. But Al-Ubaydli says the company is profitable ahead of schedule, and he expects that incentives for doctors to adopt electronic health records will help spur usage. "Every government is heading toward the same big trends of universal health care and payment by result, not activity," he says. "All the incentives are there to improve outcomes by sharing data."

GTX Corp and LifeSpire are Helping Save Lives and Money by Modernizing the Emergency Health Care System



Los Angeles, California September 20, 2012-GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO) Code Amber AlertagTM, a GTX Corp business unit, along with LifeSpire, Inc., continue adding new patients to the Alertag PHR Platform. GTX Corp recently shipped 1,000 additional Alertags to LifeSpire and renewed 500 residents into their secure medical identification platform.

GTX Corp partnered with LifeSpire, a nonprofit dedicated to helping the developmentally disabled. This fortuitous collaboration resulted in the launch of a LifeSpire-branded Alertag that expedites the treatment of persons in need, potentially saving their lives. LifeSpire operates residential facilities for the elderly and disabled in the State of New York with over 5,000 residents and 400 staff. LifeSpire trusts Alertag to store and retrieve critical medical information.

“It’s a powerful tool for an individual to carry,” said Mark van Voorst, Chief Executive Officer of LifeSpire. “If you are unable to speak, are unconscious or simply confused and lost, the first responder will have near real-time access to vital health and medical information that could mean the difference between life and death.”

In furtherance of its mission, GTX Corp has also developed a seamless interface between RX providers and patients that automatically updates the Alertag database whenever a resident's medication changes or a new prescription is filled. This functionality follows major trends in healthcare data management. As Dr. Michael Swiernik, UCLA Director of Medical Information has recently stated, "A big part of where the government is going is to try to make the data flow more freely amongst providers and hospitals so that your data goes with you instead of staying with the hospital or doctor.”

GTX Corp is positioning itself at the forefront of this emerging Personal Health Record (“PHR”) market, which is being bolstered by the Government’s mandate to modernize data management and shift the ownership of health records back to the individual. In fact, the Federal Government has recently budgeted $19.2B of stimulus money to help defray the cost of this modernization.

GTX Corp has already identified over 60 facilities that operate in a manner similar to LifeSpire that could benefit from implementing this patent-pending solution. At an annual subscription cost of less than twenty dollars per individual, the value proposition of this service is readily evident to these types of institutions and creates a stream of recurring revenues for the Company.

Similar to a loyalty card you might receive from a local supermarket, the Alertag features a QR code that grants immediate access to vital medical history. When the QR code is scanned by a Smartphone or any electronic device with scanning capability, a link will open showing the Alertag holder’s general medical history—including name, address, and emergency points of contact. Larger providers will also have the ability to add their logos and their contact information as the emergency contact for many of the individuals they care for.

In addition to medical facilities utilizing the Alertag system institutionally, individuals suffering from ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer's, diabetes, anemia, asthma, Autism, dementia,  allergies, epileptic seizures, mental impairment, and many other conditions, will benefit from having an Alertag, hence the broader appeal and marketability of the Alertag system to the general consumer.

New GPS Technology Helps Track And Safeguard Wandering Autistics
GTX Corp Has GPS Tracking Applications to Find, Assist People with Autism

If the unthinkable happens and your child goes missing, or becomes injured, they should be carrying a TACA approved Alertag. Having portable and secure personal electronic medical records will provide unparalleled security and assurance that you, and your loved ones, will receive the most accurate diagnosis and treatment anytime you, or they, are in need of medical treatment no matter where you are.

Who would benefit from using Alertag


  1. Children that are prone to wander - If at all possible these children should always have an Alertag with them. If they are found by a good samaritan, police or fire officer, emergency contact information along with information on their medical condition(s) is instantly available through the Code Amber Alertag secure web site.
  2. Children that are somewhat independent - These children should always carry an Alertag in case they become confused or lost.
  3. Children that are completely dependent on caregivers - For these children, the caregivers should always have the child's Alertag at hand incase of emergency or an unexpected visit to an unfamiliar doctor or ER. Having the child's complete medical records and medications immediately available in a new medical facility saves invaluable time in determining proper treatment for the child.
  4. Caregivers - You are a child's lifeline and you should also carry an Alertag. If something should happen to you while a child is in your care, the information available to first responders on your Alertag will provide your emergency and medical contact information, so the care of the child will be minimally interrupted and you will be promptly cared for.

GPS Technology Enhances Quality of Life for Autism due to wandering and safety issues


GTX Corp extends its growing IP portfolio and a partnership with Talk About Curing Autism to develop GPS tracking location based solutions aimed at aiding families living with autism


Los Angeles– May 8, 2012GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), the leader in
customizable, 2-way GPS tracking location based solutions has been granted another utility patent, adding to the company’s growing IP portfolio that includes 11 issued patents, 5 patents pending and 34 U.S. and 28 foreign patents under its license.  The multi-patented GPS technology platform will also soon serve as the foundation for products designed to help the millions of families affected by autism, as a result of a new partnership between GTX Corp and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA).

This new Patent 8,154,401 B1 titled “System and Method for Communication with a Tracking Device” protects many of the vital communications with the GTX Corp backend processes that are currently being used daily by the Company’s licensed enterprise partners and consumers, enhancing the Company’s barriers to entry in the growing $13 billion location based services industry.  “This new patent has 30 claims, including 2 independent claims.  One of the independent claims is directed to a tracking device with remotely configurable settings and the other independent claim is directed to a method of communicating configuration data to a tracking device.  This patent further strengthens the Company’s already extensive IP portfolio and overall value,” said Larry E. Henneman, Jr., Registered U.S. Patent Attorney.

Continued technological innovation and partnerships such as the one between TACA and GTX Corp advances the reality that healthcare is no longer limited to what happens in the hospital.  Healthcare and safety is becoming integrated into our phones, our homes and even our clothing with the convergence of digital and medical technologies. “We are excited to partner with GTX Corp and to begin providing the thousands of families we work with, technical solutions for those diagnosed with autism who wander from their families. This partnership will address the serious safety concerns for the many families we serve,” stated Lisa Ackerman, TACA Founder.

 “With our award winning multi-patented GPS Smart Shoe and patent-pending Alertag we have been at the forefront of connected health for years, providing new levels of functional oversight, security and peace of mind to a variety of audiences and needs,” commented Patrick Bertagna, CEO of GTX Corp. “We look forward to developing and bringing to market new, innovative products that both satisfy the ever-increasing consumer demand for location based solutions and that will help support the families challenged with a special needs child.”

Wandering is an enormous issue for the autism community. Recent research concludes that 48% of children diagnosed with autism wander and are susceptible to injury, death and other safety issues.  This partnership will offer families affected by autism a solution for helping track and potentially assist in keeping their loved one safe.

Recently analyst firm TNS said a majority of people around the world were now recognizing the value of sharing their location. Given the report, almost one fifth, or 19 percent, of the world's mobile users are already using location based services, and more than three times that (62 percent) aspire to do so very soon. With the expectation of this market seeing sizable growth over the next few years GTX Corp is positioning itself well by continuing to build a strong intellectual property portfolio and expand its strategic relationships.
