MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Skyline Medical Inc. (OTCQB: SKLN) today announced that two new trials of the STREAMWAY Fluid Waste Management System are underway in North Carolina and California. Brier Creek Ambulatory Surgery Center, affiliated with the Duke Health Care System, and located in Raleigh, North Carolina, is in the process of validating the STREAMWAY Fluid Management System for endoscopic procedures. Additionally, Beverly Hospital, affiliated with the Adventist Health System, and located in Montebello, California, is conducting a trial in its radiology department.
"We are finding that the higher rates of minimally invasive endoscopic procedures, driven by an aging population, are leading medical facilities to explore ways to reduce healthcare costs and maximize the value of endoscopy departments," said Josh Kornberg, CEO. "We are pleased that Brier Creek Ambulatory Surgery Center has chosen to trial the latest model of the STREAMWAY System, which features state-of-the-art technology designed to dispose of surgical fluid waste safely, without exposing medical professionals to infectious waste."
Kornberg continued, "The STREAMWAY System is also a great option for Radiology departments, which typically use glass evacuation bottles and plastic canisters for fluid collection and disposal. These types of procedures use a very high number of canisters for just one procedure, which is very inefficient. The STREAMWAY System requires less time and expense than these traditional fluid disposal methods and we are delighted that this trial will enable the staff at Beverly Hospital to experience firsthand the benefits of using the STREAMWAY System."
"Radiology and endoscopy departments are two of our key target markets and we continue to remain focused on growing our profile in these areas throughout 2014," Kornberg concluded.
These new trials are in addition to the previously disclosed 55 STREAMWAY units already scheduled for sale or trial in the first part of 2014.
About Skyline Medical Inc.
Skyline Medical Inc. produces a fully automated, patented, FDA-cleared, waste fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates staff exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the healthcare environment. Antiquated manual fluid handling methods -- which require hand carrying and emptying filled-fluid canisters -- present an exposure risk and potential liability. Skyline Medical's STREAMWAY System fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluids and is designed to: 1) reduce overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improve compliance with Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines, 3) improve efficiency in the operating room, and radiology and endoscopy departments -- leading to greater profitability, and 4) provide greater environmental stewardship by helping to eliminate the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills annually in the United States.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
