Medical Scheduling Software as Virtual Assistants


Ask any business professional out there, what's the most important aspect of their daily life and the answer will probably be punctuality. Everyone knows that time is money and wasted time equates to loss of revenue. Being productive and reaching deadlines on time can make the difference in excelling any company to the next level.

It's equally important to first be notified and contacted of daily events before they take place so you can prepare for them. After all, how can you attend a meeting if you don't know when and where it is? Things such as missing conference calls can be embarrassing and may cost your entire staff their jobs. Comprehensive measures should be taken that will ensure daily business requirements are met without going over budget in the process.

Virtual assistants

With the rise of work from home virtual assistant positions comes a large demand for reliable professional software's that facilitates their needs. Many employers opt to hire someone online who will work completely from their own homes. Standard default applications that are included with computers tend to lack the specific functions needed to organize daily activities that employees are required to have.

So you have to be a little careful of the type of software that you are going to use for your medical practice. In other words, you don't want software that are not specialized enough to cater to your needs.

Some programs on the market are simply over priced knock-offs of existing Microsoft software's. When doing a product comparison consumers should ensure that any application being considered should exceed what they already possess. Any reputable seller will point out the differences between competitor's products along with detailed information compared to their own.

For employees with several clients more sophisticated applications are now at their disposal with minimal cost. Just by owning one can place home workers in a higher paying position. Knowing how to operate it can mean a world of difference to a secretary trying to gain employment as well.


Let's face it, thousands of pieces of square colored paper with adhesives stuck all around your desk isn't a good way to keep reminders. In this rapid technologically advanced information age up to date statistics, times and dates can be stored electronically and dispersed amongst networks to many people instantly. Any real business needs to save time, money and overall hassle of setting up appointments and notifying others about specific information. Virtual assistants, district and regional managers as well as CIO's have mastered their business field simply by using powerful appointment software that works. Visit the site below for more details and take a few minutes to go through the free tour. There is full support, graphs, faq's and much more that hasn't be covered in this article waiting for you.

Location Tracking Via CellID

If you need to find cell phone user's particular location (even if it's your own), you can use GPS. GPS stands for "global positioning system," and it was originally developed by the United States Department of Defence for their use. GPS uses a GPS receiver; the receiver calculates the user's position by precisely timing signals that are being sent by GPS satellites that are in orbit above the earth.

Increasingly, cell phone handsets include GPS as one of their functions. However, some older handsets don't have this function, and it can be difficult to find users by location. One way around this, is by using cell phone towers to find a particular cell phone user.

You can do this by using a process called "triangulation." It uses the cell towers that cell phones, GSM terminals, and GSM modems to use. In fact, iPhones use WiFi data and the triangulation method to locate iPhone users on Google maps (along with GPS on the newer 3G handsets).

There are also commercial locating services such as FollowUs; with these, you pay to locate handsets that don't already have GPS included. If you are a developer, you can also use commercial services such as Skyhook and Navizon.

Besides using commercial services, you may also be able to collect cell IDs yourself with GSM or GPS capable equipment. You would store this data in a database and then later, you'd use it to find out where handset users are, by first retrieving the list of cell ids they are close to, then finding these in your own database and resolving them to a latitude / longitude that was recorded when the cell id was added to the database in the first place from a device that did have GPS available.

There are several open source resources with cell ID location data available. Some of these are: CellSpotting; OpenCellID, 8Motions; ZoneTag Cell Location API, Yahoo.

OpenCellID may be especially useful, since it's an open-source database of cell IDs where you can create your own application to gather information about particular cell locations (as in the database described above). Because each cell phone user has a unique number for his or her own GSM cell, this can help you find the exact operator. If you know the number and you know the cell, AND you know the position of the cell (by using triangulation), you can find the user. It's not quite accurate, since a given cell can cover from several hundred to several thousand meters, but it's quite a specific locator nonetheless. It can at least help you narrow down where someone is if you need to find them.

Again, as older handsets are retired and new handsets are used, most of these will have global positioning system capability included. This will make the aforementioned methods and applications less necessary, if not obsolete. However, that may be a few years and it's also quite possible that more "frugal" cell phone users will use their old handsets until they simply can't function anymore. Therefore, until everyone is on a cell phone with GPS capability, it's useful to know that there are ways to find users as you need to, even if it means you have to use a little bit of old-fashioned elbow grease.

TiVo and the Death of the VCR

DVR: The Death of the VHS

Remember when your Grandma had you come over, because the light on her VCR was blinking. That clock had to be set with scientific precision. Her "soaps" were coming on, and she had to go the market. Remember the first time she accidentally recorded over "As the World Turns"? You were the only hope she had of getting her hair dyed a lovely shade of blue, and not missing out on the overly dramatic hijinks of drastically younger people.

That all changed with the advent of the TiVo. Calling itself a "Digital Video Recorder" or DVR, the TiVo didn't need you to set the time. It would do so itself. Your Grandma didn't have to check her TV Guide, because the DVR downloaded its own program schedule. She didn't have to ask you to explain how to record something, because all she had to do was hit the little red button, and it was taken care of. No longer would she have to worry about recording over her show.

The TiVo could do even more than that, as it would automatically recommend other shows you might like based on your recording habits. You would now be able to watch and rewind live television for up to an half hour. There would be no more changing of tapes, as it would handle 30-65 hours of programming without having to delete a single hour of programming.

How does it do this? On the hardware side, it is pretty simple: There is a set of video inputs, and a set of video outputs, much like a VCR. Unlike a VCR, a hardware based video converter takes the video feeds, and converts them using the MPEG-2 standard. This is the same standard used to encode DVD's. Once the encoding takes place, it is stored digitally as a file on the hard drive, where it is made available for immediate access.

Now, things have evolved since the advent of the first TiVo. With the new demands of high-definition television, greater hard drive space has to be added, along with the ability to network multiple TiVos together, and a stack of other features. What is more interesting is what TiVo's competitors have put together.

The cable companies have put together packs that allow to rewind a channel by as much as 3 hours (provided that you left your tv on the same channel). Occasionally, I have been able to go back by as much as three hours on two different channels at the same time. The hardware community has provided software that allows you to build your own TiVo. MythTV, an offering by the open source community, goes one step forward, by allowing people to build a home media server. This means that you install the front-end client for an unlimited number of televisions, and you can access all your recorded programs from a single box.

AT&T has built a new DVR for their "Uverse" IPTV that allows you to record 4 shows at the same time, and control it from a mobile phone, or via an internet connection. They also use the much higher quality H.264 codec as their primary recording encoder.

All of these offerings have massive hard drives, and some even have ways around broadcaster imposed restrictions. "What restrictions?" you might ask. Well, there are a couple. One of the main reasons people use DVR's to begin with is the ability to fast-forward past commercials. Since all networks make money from advertising revenue, the thought of a customer skipping past ads automatically brings lost money to mind.

With that in mind, they attempted to implement an advertising campaign within TiVo that would show pop-up ads when people fast-forwarded through recorded shows. In another attempt to control how people use content, the broadcasters have implemented the broadcast flag. With the broadcast flag, they can keep you from burning your content to a disk, saving it to a hard drive, have the content expire after a week, or even keep you from recording the broadcast at all.

Currently, there is only project that refuses to recognize the broadcast flag: MythTV. This means that the Myth project believes that you have the right to do whatever you want with the signal that is coming into your home. Now, MythTV is based on Linux, as is TiVo. TiVo is also based on Linux. Linux is software that says there can be no restrictions on how it can be used, but in order to use it, it must allow the same privileges to the user. TiVo's recognition of the broadcast flag will keep them from updating their software that is available under the newest Linux licenses. They are subject to millions of dollars in lawsuits if they do. There will definitely be lawsuits soon, with broadcasters, and everyday consumers in the crosshairs.

Recording has come a long way from the day the VCR. It's easier to do, higher in quality, and more convenient to schedule. The only question now, is whether or not you will be able to watch what you have recorded as easily as you did back then.
