leave a comment »

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ —

WHEN: 12:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, August 16, 2012
LOCATION: Online, with complimentary registration
SPEAKER: Senior Consultant Virginia Cardin, Dr.P.H. for
Frost & Sullivan( http://www.frost.com )’s Healthcare Practice
SURVEY: Click here( https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NJF7SQG ) to take the
Positioning Hospital Laboratories to Succeed survey

Healthcare delivery is evolving, yet the objectives remain unchanged. How do we provide the right service, to the right patient, in the right setting, at the right time and at the right price?

For hospitals, the underlying concern is how to provide these services in a climate where value and reimbursement are often not in sync. For hospital laboratory directors, the fundamental challenge is how to position their laboratories to succeed in meeting the increasing demand for services that are essential and critical to better healthcare outcomes.

Why you should attend:

— Gain insights into how hospital laboratories are adapting to profitability
in an environment shaped by competitive factors, changing provider dynamics,
and healthcare reform
— Learn about new directions hospital laboratories have explored to help
their respective administrations achieve strategic goals
— Complete a short online survey( https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NJF7SQG )
to see how you compare with your laboratory peers
— Determine the appropriate decision matrix to demonstrate value

This briefing will benefit hospital CEOs, CFOs, COOs as well as hospital laboratory directors by discussing findings from a recent survey on hospital laboratory services. This webinar also provides attendees with an open environment to identify new opportunities.

Supporting Quotes

“Laboratory medicine is both an art and a science,” said Frost & Sullivan Senior Consultant Virginia Cardin, Dr.P.H. “Hospital laboratories provide approximately 75 percent of the information on which physicians base their inpatient treatment decisions. Stat tests must be given top priority and laboratories may have external contracts with commercial labs to meet their needs. Others have strategically built an outreach/outpatient program to generate new revenue streams. There is no single approach.”

Frost & Sullivan Award Underlines Proximex’s Superior Market Penetration of PSIM Market

leave a comment »

Company’s success driven by strategic acquisition activity, offer of holistic solution and enhanced customer service and support
LONDON, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Based on its success in the physical security information management (PSIM) market, Frost & Sullivan presents Proximex, a global PSIM solution provider, with the 2012 Global Market Penetration Leadership Award.

“The company’s success in the global PSIM market has been driven by broader market penetration through acquisition,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Krzysztof Rutkowski. “The development of a holistic solution and building customer confidence through assurance of future support and service, have further underpinned the company’s superior market penetration.”

In 2011, Tyco Integrated Security (TycoIS), formerly ADT, acquired Proximex following the current market trend of connecting and correlating information from disparate security systems.

“The most important fact is that TycoIS is the first systems integrator to acquire a PSIM company,” remarks Rutkowski. “With this acquisition, TycoIS will be able to create awareness among its customers who are still unaware of the benefits its PSIM solutions deliver.”

Following its acquisition, Proximex has penetrated American, European and Middle East markets. Furthermore, it is increasing its influence in Asia and Latin America. This strategic move has also increased customer confidence in Proximex’s products. Post its acquisition, the product pipeline of Proximex has grown by 135 percent and its revenues have increased by 122 percent on a year-to-year basis.

“Proximex has been adding an increased number of customers in the area of security by combining its competencies in PSIM solutions with that of TycoIS’s abilities as a systems integrator,” says Rutkowski. “The offer of a holistic solution, through the combination of the services offered by both the companies, has further enhanced the company’s rate of market penetration.”

While TycoIS has its own product portfolio through which it installs systems, it leverages Proximex’s solution – Surveillint(TM) – to integrate all of them into one holistic solution. The service portfolio of TycoIS is expected to expand in the coming years with its offer of after-sales support services.

“The company’s sizeable market footprint allows it to acquire and service any customer in these markets,” concludes Rutkowski. “Leveraging its global presence, TycoIS is able to reach out to its customers with Proximex’s Surveillint solution.”

Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Penetration Leadership Award is presented each year to the company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing the fastest measured rate of change of market share within its industry. This Award recognises how fast a company increases its penetration of a market, in terms of revenues or units as specified.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

About Proximex

Based in San Jose, Calif., Proximex is the global leader in event and information management for both physical and logical security markets. Transportation, defense and corporate customers applaud Proximex solutions for delivering the fastest set up and deployment, the highest in scalability, availability and failover capabilities, and the most robust integrations in the industry. Proximex solutions join and correlate information from disparate security systems into one centralized environment, thereby transforming massive amounts of data into useable, actionable information. Leveraging the company’s IT heritage, Proximex solutions integrate physical and logical security systems with network and health monitoring technologies to catch multi-pronged attacks and relay important business-level information.

Squire Sanders Korea Practice Leader Joon Yong Kim registered as foreign legal consultant by Korean Bar Association

leave a comment »

SEOUL, South Korea, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Squire Sanders has announced that partner and Korea practice leader, Joon Yong Kim, has been officially registered as a foreign legal consultant by the Korean Bar Association.
Mr. Kim’s registration follows approval from the Republic of Korea’s Ministry of Justice received on 9 July. As a foreign legal consultant, Mr. Kim is now permitted to practice in Korea and, on behalf of Squire Sanders, he has applied for a license to open an office in Seoul.

Joon Yong Kim was born and raised in Korea, and also spent time in Tokyo before completing his education in the United States. He began his legal career in 1982 with Graham & James, which had one of the leading legal practices in the Asia Pacific region and which later merged with Squire Sanders. In 2000, Mr. Kim moved to Sidley Austin’s Los Angeles office as a partner. He joined Squire Sanders in 2009, and has been working from the Tokyo and Los Angeles offices.

Mr. Kim has vast experience of both transactional and contentious work. Over the course of his career, he has advised on numerous cross-border M&A and other corporate transactions, including, most recently, a US$4 billion steel mill joint venture in Brazil for a Korean steel maker. On the contentious side, Mr. Kim has considerable experience of both international arbitration and litigation in the U.S., most notably representing Korea-based global electronics manufacturers in intellectual property disputes.

“This is a major step towards establishing an office in Seoul for Squire Sanders,” commented Mr. Kim. “Having advised Korean companies and multinationals with business interests in Korea for over 30 years, it has been my long-held ambition to launch an office in Korea.

“I am excited at the prospect of being able to work with existing and new clients from a local office. We will be able to offer Korean businesses the benefit of our global experience, delivered by a Seoul-based team that is accessible and has genuine local knowledge.”

With the launch in Seoul, Squire Sanders will have 38 offices in 19 countries, with more than 1,300 lawyers worldwide.

About Squire Sanders

Founded in 1890, Squire Sanders has one of the strongest integrated global platforms. With our longstanding “one-firm firm” philosophy, Squire Sanders provides seamless legal counsel worldwide. It has strong practices in markets where Korean businesses want to expand, particularly in China and the Asia Pacific region, South America, the US, Europe and the Middle East. Our presence in Asia dates back to the 1950s, making Squire Sanders one of the first global legal practices operating in the region.
