BOSTON, Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Flu season has begun, and national telehealth leader American Well® is among the first healthcare providers to see an uptick in online visits associated with influenza-like-symptoms (ILI). According to company data, the first cases of flu have been diagnosed in Minnesota, Ohio and New York. These ILI cases are scattered and intermittent; however, there is a notable upward trend, including a 10% increase so far in November. As a first response for consumers with flu symptoms, telehealth doctor visits can assist in early detection, treatment of symptoms and can help with prevention keeping those that are contagious home while also seeking care. "With flu season kicking off and a higher likelihood of contagion due to holiday travel and colder weather, early detection and preventative measures are key," said Peter Antall, MD, President and Chief Medical Officer for the Online Care Group – the nation's first and largest online physician network, which contracts exclusively with American Well. "The convenience of seeing a doctor online or through our mobile app can be a first line defense for detection and treatment." Dr. Antall recommends three ways to fight the flu: Seize the sneeze. The flu is an airborne virus that can be contracted from sneezes and coughs. Cover your mouth to prevent transmission of airborne germs and bacteria. Take a Shot. A flu shot is one of the easiest and best ways to prevent the flu and is often available at local pharmacies and in many workplaces. Rinse and Repeat. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, rinsing them for 15-20 seconds each time. When patients do get sick, it's important to stay home from work and school to prevent spreading the virus. "The flu is contagious one day before symptoms develop and up to seven…
SANTA YSABEL, Calif., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cruz Bustamante, spokesman for Santa Ysabel Interactive, an enterprise of the Santa Ysabel Tribal Development Corporation issued the following statement responding to the State of California's lawsuit that attempts to severely undermine the inherent sovereign rights of the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel and its Class II gaming rights under federal law pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). "The complaint filed last week by the State of California against the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel lacks both substance and merit and attacks tribal sovereignty. We look forward to having the opportunity to demonstrate the legality, regulatory veracity and consumer safety of the Tribe's interactive Class II bingo enterprise. "With this lawsuit, the State of California is attacking the sovereignty of all tribes. The suit is intent on obstructing the rights and economic vitality afforded to federally-recognized Indian tribes under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). The State's misguided attack completely ignores existing federal regulations and guidelines encompassed in the Cabazon Decision of the United States Supreme Court, which remains the law of the land. It is a thinly veiled attempt to weaken tribal governments as the State prepares to negotiate compacts with many of the California Tribes. This action by the State should be of great concern to all Tribes in California and elsewhere because it reflects a tactic that if successful would set a dangerous legal precedent that could be used in other jurisdictions to undermine and attack tribal sovereignty." "Santa Ysabel Interactive and the Santa Ysabel Gaming Commission (SYGC) have constructed a business model and regulatory structure that is completely transparent and compliant with all applicable SYGC and NIGC regulations. The transparency is such that the SYGC regulations are and have been available to the public for months…
