Every successful business relationship begins with trust. Understanding one’s business needs and interests is invaluable. This is especially true for government medical and surgical product procurement. For the government clinicians that treat our veterans and active duty service members, it is even more crucial that successful and consistent access to medical and surgical supplies becomes a part of the routine.

By working with Academy Medical, clinicians can rest easy knowing their patients will receive the best care, because they have access to the best array of medical and surgical supplies from major manufactures and government medical facilities. These facilities can count on the availability of necessary medical and surgical supplies at fair and reasonable pricing through Academy Medical. As a South Florida-based company and a verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Academy Medical understands how valuable a clinician’s time is, and how important the need to provide the best products at fair prices is.

To help navigate the government medical procurement process, Academy Medical provides medical and surgical companies with various entry points onto government contracts. Through utilization of Academy Medical’s access to the federal marketplace, manufactures can provide the supplies and equipment necessary to meet clinician’s needs.

“When it comes to a manufacturers supply chain, we make it our mission to ensure that each procurement link complements each other to perform smoothly and effectively,” says Ryan Isham, Vice President of Med/Surg at Academy Medical.

By working with Academy Medical, manufactures can get their products on government contracts faster, providing clinicians with a variety of tools that can be utilized to improve patient care. Federal Medical Hospitals can receive supplies from Brain Sentinel, which developed the SPEAC® System to monitor seizure activity, Entellus Medical, developers of less invasive and cost-effective ENT technologies, and Skye Biologics, manufacturers of biologic tissue matrices. By partnering with these and other nationally-recognized manufacturers, Academy Medical is able to provide these products and many more to government medical facilities.

The Role Court Reporters Play in the Legal System

When one thinks of the world of law, their mind usually gravitates towards attorneys. It is true, attorneys have a difficult job—they have a wide array of people to bring together and orchestrate a cohesive (hopefully winning) case. Behind each and every one of those attorneys, however, is a plethora of legal professionals that provide attorneys the edge they need to be successful.

Among these professionals (and potentially, one of the most important team members) are court reporters. Most laypeople don’t think of court reporters—they’re the quiet people on keyboards in the corner of a court room—but in reality, without them, many cases would come to a screeching halt. Why is that? Because, without a skilled court reporter, attorneys wouldn’t have transcripts that accurately record what was said during their legal proceedings.

Suddenly, the importance of court reporters is clear as day. A recorded transpiring of what occurred in a deposition or trial is crucial to planning how to proceed with a case. It allows attorneys to take notes of important events, such as witness testimonies, and use them at a later date. But in order to get the best results, attorneys need a court reporting firm they know they can rely on.
