Thermalon meets growing demand for dry eye treatment

BY Michael Johnsen

ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Thermalon last week showcased its Thermalon Eye Compress at the annual National Association of Chain Drug Stores Total Store Expo.
 
There is an increasing demand for dry eye treatment, as more people experience eye discomfort, noted Sharon Burkart, Thermalon marketing director. “More Baby Boomers are experiencing eye discomfort as part of the natural aging process and the younger set feel dry, itchy or burning eyes as a result of more hours spent looking at digital devices,” she said. Other common causes of dry eyes include certain prescription medications and disease states, such as diabetes.
 
According to Burkart, doctors recommend the application of moist heat to improve the flow of natural oils into the eyes. Thermalon is clinically proven to bring relief to dry, itchy and irritated eyes within minutes, she noted. The microwave-activated technology requires 20 seconds in the microwave, followed by a 3 to 5 minute treatment. Thermalon has patented the technology and is one of the only eye compresses that safely delivers moist heat.

Prestige Brands launches website sweepstakes behind Fiber Choice

BY Michael Johnsen

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — This September, Prestige Brands is challenging consumers to get picky and switch to a Fiber Choice product for their daily fiber supplement with a special website sweepstakes, the company announced Wednesday. Through Sept. 30, consumers can visit FiberChoice.com/ConsumerChallenge and enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 debit gift card.
 
"Fiber Choice products are a great-tasting simple way to help close the gap between the fiber you get from food and the fiber you need for good overall digestive health," stated Jacob Martin, Fiber Choice brand manager. "Each serving contains as much natural fiber as two cups of raw spinach or a cup of steamed cauliflower, so when you don't get enough fiber through food, like most Americans, these chewable treats are the next best thing."
 
Fiber Choice supplements come in five formulas: Fiber Choice chewable tablets; Fiber Choice Fruity Bites; Fiber Choice Weight Management; Fiber Choice Plus Calcium; and Fiber Choice Plus Antioxidants.

Healthcare Data Solutions ranks on Inc. 5000’s list of the fastest-growing private companies

BY Michael Johnsen

IRVINE, Calif. — Healthcare Data Solutions on Wednesday announced that it ranked on Inc. 5000’s list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the third year in a row, at No. 3,154 with 111% sales growth. To qualify for the Inc. 5000 list, companies must be U.S.-based, privately held and independent, with at least $2 million in revenues in the most recent year.
 
“HDS has experienced tremendous growth since opening its doors in 2006, and making the Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row is validation that we’re continuing to grow in the right areas,” stated HDS CEO Tim Slevin. “Working closely with our clients has been integral to that process, and we look forward to serving their needs both in the U.S. and abroad.”
 
The continuous growth that has landed Healthcare Data Solutions on the list three times shows no signs of slowing down, the company reported. Major life sciences and biotech companies continue to rely on HDS’ compliance data for Open Payments/Sunshine Act reporting and aggregate spend reporting. Additionally, HDS continues to meet the growing needs of pharmacies by introducing several new real-time products, as well as a vendor-neutral prescriber validation solution, verifying one million prescribers per day.
 
HDS’ provider database, containing nearly two million healthcare providers, allows medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors to access the data they need in real time, with updates to the HDS cloud every four hours. And the recent partnership with PureBase, a European-based data provider, ensures that HDS clients are able to access data from 33 countries for international compliance and more.
