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 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.
