National Treatment Network Taps Growing Addiction Treatment Market

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) August 08, 2012

National Treatment Network (NTN) is helping educate drug and alcohol addiction sufferers on the benefits of using their private health insurance PPO plans to receive up to $ 30,000 or more in substance abuse benefits. The Greater Nashville-based healthcare direct marketing agency is garnering international attention and generating substantial business growth by serving this market segment.

NTN is spiking business by aggressively and strategically placing national television and radio advertising including spots running on many popular syndicated radio programs. The company is connecting substance abuse sufferers with addiction treatment centers and helps patients with private health insurance PPO policies learn about their eligible substance abuse treatment coverage for medical detox services and residential (inpatient) rehab programs.

NTN assists its customers by helping them verify their insurance coverage amounts (up to $ 30,000 or more) for substance abuse treatment services and prepares those eligible for immediate admittance to addiction treatment centers offering customized programs for both men and women.

As a result, more and more consumers are using their private health insurance PPO plans to receive substance abuse treatment at little or no out-of-pocket expense by utilizing NTN and their network of facilities throughout the U.S. and beyond. Many drug and alcohol treatment facilities bill private insurance companies directly and assist the patient throughout the process saving them time and money.

Consumers that have substance abuse riders in their health insurance plans (with carriers such as Aetna, Cigna, Humana, United Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield and other premium health insurance providers) have more choices in terms of drug and alcohol treatment center locations, treatment types and amenities. Families are now realizing that they can receive treatment for any family member seeking recovery through their private PPO health insurance plan.

According to Anita Burns, Managing Partner of Medicquire (MDQ) who owns National Treatment Network, NTN is now in the final stages of releasing several national TV ads via large networks and agency relationships. It has been a natural evolution for us since we have mastered in-house internet and mobile advertising and are now moving this core competency into multi-programming TV and radio marketing.

MDQ markets under company brand names, service marks and diverse media channels combining diverse experiences, skill sets, backgrounds and perspectives to create a high end, expert team competency base. MDQ is quickly building a reputation as the go-to-firm for integrated, performance-based direct medical marketing solutions. MDQs mission is to be the leading global player in the direct to consumer medical marketing space.

Texas Energy Network (TEN) Announces Membership in Key Energy Data Standards Organizations; Releases Standards for Carrier Deployment of LTE for Energy Communications

Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 25, 2012

Citing ownership and control of the network core as a key element of service, Texas Energy Network, LLC announced today carrier deployment standards for LTE networks on the oilfield. Gregory M. Casey, Chief Executive Officer of TEN stated; “TEN is releasing these standards as guidelines for energy companies seeking to use LTE to transmit data. TEN’s network is being built to a carrier class standard and we think its important that our energy customers know what that means compared to some other service that may portend to provide critical infrastructure wireless service.” Casey was business unit head of Qwest/US West’s carrier access business before starting TEN.

The first key element of carrier class service is control of the LTE Evolved Packet Core(EPC). An LTE network uses an eNodeB (evolved node B, essentially an LTE base station), a MME (mobile management entity), a HSS (home subscriber server), a SGW (serving gateway), and a PGW (a packet data network gateway). With the exception of the eNodeB, everything is considered as part of the EPC (evolved packet core) network. At the tower the eNodeB connects to the EPC.

The MME and the HSS basically handle all duties regarding subscriber access to the network. It handles all the authentication, roaming rules for subscribers, etc. The SGW essentially acts like a giant router for subscribers, passing data back and forth from the subscriber to the network. The PGW provides the connection to external data networks. The most common data network the PGW provides a connection to is the internet.

Therefore, ownership and control of the EPC is essential. Allen Shipman, Vice President of Engineering and Operations at TEN stated, “network control is essential when providing data transmission to critical infrastructure companies such as the energy industry. If the network isn’t controlled and is maintained by a third party, its not secure and certainly not carrier class.” Shipman is noted for his architecture of the 50,000 mile Broadwing fiber network now owned by data heavyweight Level 3.

Other key elements beside ownership and control that are essential to the provision of carrier class service are: 1) ownership and control of backhaul links over licensed spectrum, 2) ringed network topology to provide system continuity in the case of backhaul failure, 3) redundant core routers in the case of failure, 4) secure tower deployment and several other design elements. These standards will be announced on TEN’s website in September.

TEN also announced membership in two key energy data standards organizations, Energistics and PIDX. Energistics is a global industry consortium that facilitates an inclusive user community for the development, adoption and maintenance of collaborative, open standards for the energy industry in general and specifically for oil and gas exploration and production. Its website can be found at PIDX provides a global forum for delivering the process, information and technology standards that facilitates seamless, efficient electronic business within the oil and natural gas industry and its trading community. Its website can be found at Greg Casey also noted “TEN is the first carrier to become a member in both organizations. Our intention is to not only efficiently transport data at high speeds but to facilitate the use of data in energy company work flows. Membership in these organizations gives us access to key energy data constituents.”

Starting first in the Permian Basin and the Eagle Ford shale play, TEN is delivering 4G LTE to the oil and gas industry to enable the promise of the “Digital Oilfield”. The company’s website can be found at
