Sleep health management, FusionHealth joins Trailways as Affiliate

FusionHealth provides pioneering sleep health technology

Fairfax, VA – October 10, 2018 – Trailways Transportation System, Inc., announces a new affiliated partner, SleepCharge® by FusionHealth®. SleepCharge® is a comprehensive program combining technology with human interventions to manage sleep health for entire workforces and populations of at-risk patients.

FusionHealth®, a sleep health technology company based in the Atlanta suburb of Suwanee, GA, introduced SleepCharge® to its clientele of employers and healthcare systems in 2009. Since then the company has documented how employers providing SleepCharge® as an employee benefit have realized improved efficiency, consistency and delivery of care while systematically driving positive health outcomes and controlling healthcare costs for their at-risk personnel.

“Through our pioneering SleepCharge® program, FusionHealth® provides workers with a single, convenient way to address all of their sleep problems,” said Larry Baird, FusionHealth® Vice President, Business Development. “And we’re enabling employers and health plans to alter the trajectory of spiraling healthcare, productivity and safety costs.”

SleepCharge® deploys an interactive Website at www.sleepcharge.com filled with online tools to provide up-to-date education about sleep health and training to optimize healthy sleep. The SleepCharge® program also includes an app for mobile devices to conduct assessments identifying problem areas, to deliver personalized therapeutic protocols for improving sleep (recommended by board-certified, sleep medicine physicians) and to provide personalized sleep data so participants can track their progress. In addition, SleepCharge® makes sleep health professionals, including sleep coaches, available to answer participant questions, to offer continuing education and to provide encouragement for sticking with recommended daily therapy.

Healthy sleep improves alertness and reduces the risk of accidents on the road. It also helps to sustain overall physical and mental good health for peak productivity. In contrast, poor sleep can contribute over time to chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and mood disorders, as well as impaired memory, attention and judgment for decision-making.

Trailways Transportation System, Inc., is a network of approximately 65 independently owned and/or operated bus and motorcoach company locations in North America and parts of Europe.

Through its Affiliated Partners Program, Trailways enables suppliers and travel partners to network with company owners and other top decision makers, to their mutual benefit. The Affiliated Partners Program helps to ensure that companies in the Trailways network receive the latest and most effective technology, information, services and products.

Volvo sponsors and stages the Ocean Race – Exciting Finish Pending in 5 Days

The Volvo Ocean Race sails in quest of adventurous competition on cleaner seas –

Having set sail in October 2017, this 9 month Volvo Ocean Race will conclude soon at The Hague, The Netherlands.

https://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/tracker.html

 

(May 31, 2018, Sainte Claire, QC) — The annual Volvo Ocean Race launched in 1973, sails on as the ultimate challenge in seamanship. Volvo Group and Volvo Car jointly own this worldwide regatta as a worthwhile conveyance to conduct business and promote their brand; pointing to the convincing and parallels between this race and the culture and values that drive Volvo forward — strength, endurance and adventurous competition backed by innovation and technology.

Commencing for nine months out of the year over the course of 46,000 nautical miles, across four oceans and six continents with stopovers in 13 host cities, the Volvo Ocean Race serves as the ultimate platform to deliver the deeper message to international audiences that the world’s oceans are in trouble.

Volvo races for clean ocean global awareness

Volvo’s herculean effort in sponsoring and staging the Ocean Race promotes global awareness of the necessity to keep the oceans of the world clean and free of further pollution, most notably everyday single-use plastic items such as straws, water bottles and shopping bags.

In conjunction with its sustainability partners, 11th Hour Racing and Bluewater, Volvo Ocean Race Education Program is conducting its Ocean Summits in seven stopover cities as part of the United Nations Environment’s Clean Seas campaign. These focused presentations bring leaders from sports, industry, government and science together to address innovations and solutions to the global crisis of ocean plastic pollution.

“Plastics pollution is one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time,” he says. “We take our responsibility seriously to play our part and help tackle this global catastrophe.”

Having set sail in October 2017, this edition of the Volvo Ocean Race will conclude in June at The Hague, The Netherlands.

Similarly, as part of the Volvo Group, Prevost heralds its safety mission as a core value and guiding principle.  Building on its legacy, the Volvo 9700 coach continues to set the highest safety standards possible. Advanced systems for driver assistance, high-efficiency brakes, seat belts and world-class protective structures are standard Volvo safety features.

Manifested as Zero Accident Vision, Volvo’s definitive goal of its all-encompassing safety initiative is to ensure no Volvo vehicle is ever involved in an accident.” We have always put safety first, as do the members of BISC.” says Michael Power, vice president, Marketing, Prevost & Nova Bus. It is in our DNA to plan and design vehicles that lead the industry in safety and protection. Our hope for our sponsorship of BISC is to help instill all bus and coach operators with a similarly robust safety philosophy.”

ABA founded BISC in 1999 as a forum for bus and coach operators, safety directors, maintenance supervisors as well as OEMs, vendors and government agencies to focus on advancements in safe bus and motorcoach operations.

“Speaking for all BISC members, we greatly appreciate this tremendous boost Prevost brings to our efforts through its sponsorship,” says BISC Chairman, Alan Smith safety director, Greyhound Lines, Dallas, TX. “Not only do we have the backing and support of a truly, quality company that shares our vision, BISC is now in a position to grow and develop from Prevost’s vast safety research and resources.”

He says through this partnership, the industry can expect more action from BISC with proven results on very specific safety issues; particularly those involving the ever-changing advancements in vehicle safety technology.

“We appreciate the commitment and foresight Prevost brings to this sponsorship,” says ABA President & CEO Peter Pantuso. “Prevost will not only help BISC grow its membership and reach new heights, the company will further establish itself as one of the pre-eminent safety leaders in the motorcoach industry.”
