Tried and Tested Tips on How to Start a Medical Supplies Business

In the initial days of the business, hiring a helping hand will become very costly for you. Therefore, try to run a one-man show, until the time the business picks up. After that, you can recruit people on a part-time or temporary basis. This will help you with the management of the business, maintaining and updating stock, replacing products, handling the cash counter, etc. However, ensure that you hire an honest and dedicated person, who will not cause an inventory fraud behind your back. As your business will expand, it is advisable that you hire more employees to help you out. It will be necessary to train these employees. You will have to impart training about where the products are located, dealing with customers, and encouraging them to buy more. Try to install an inventory management software to ease the stock maintenance process.

Respironics to settle U.S. kickback charges for $34.8 million | Reuters

Respironics Inc has agreed to pay $34.8 million to settle U.S. Department of Justice claims that it provided kickbacks in the form of free call center services to suppliers, to induce them to buy its masks for patients suffering from sleep apnea.

Wednesday's settlement with the unit of Royal Philips NV resolves whistleblower claims originally brought by Dr. Gibran Ameer, a South Carolina pharmacist who worked for medical equipment suppliers that bought the masks.

Sleep apnea causes people to have breathing pauses that last at least a few seconds while they try to sleep.

More than 18 million Americans have the condition, according to the nonprofit National Sleep Foundation. Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common type, occurs when an airway collapses or becomes blocked.

The Justice Department said Respironics violated the federal False Claims Act by providing medical equipment suppliers with the call center services through its "Fit for Life" program, so long as their patients used its masks. It said the scheme ran from April 2012 to November 2015.

"Americans deserve to know that when they are prescribed a device to treat a serious health care problem, the supplier's judgment has not been compromised by illegal payments from equipment manufacturers," Benjamin Mizer, head of the Justice Department's civil division, said in a statement.

A spokesman for Amsterdam-based Philips said the accord offers "heightened clarity and transparency" for regulators and customers.

He also said Respironics "continues to have a good-faith belief that the Fit for Life program offered a permissible bundled discount of Respironics' masks and resupply services under the appropriate discount safe harbors."

Respironics has offices in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.

The Justice Department said $34.14 million of the settlement will go to the federal government, and the remainder to various state governments. Ameer will receive $5.38 million from the federal government's share, it said.

The False Claims Act lets whistleblowers bring claims on behalf of the federal government and share in recoveries.

The case is U.S. ex rel Ameer v Respironics Inc, U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina, No. 14-02077.

Women ferry pilots ATA 1940-1945 Little Tiger Moth biplane to massive Stirling Bomber. Anything to anywhere.

With the dark clouds of war gathering the British aero industry started to move into overdrive. The immediate problem was a grave shortage of pilots to fly the newly manufactured powerful fighters and bombers from the factories as the majority of suitable men had been gobbled up by the RAF or various flying schools. As each of them qualified they were immediately snapped up by the RAF and as war dawned these new inexperienced pilots were strapped into a Hawker Hurricane or early mark of the Supermarine Spitfire to take on the Nazi hordes. Huge advances had been made in bombers and the existing bi-plane versions had been replaced with massive mono-plane multi-engine long distance aircraft, a
