Are You Aware of the ERC Ticking Time Bomb?

The IRS recently implemented new guidelines for claiming the ERC, which is aimed at

investigating improper and unsubstantiated claims. Unfortunately, many unlicensed ERC

promoters failed to properly advise, qualify, and substantiate ERC claims – leaving the business owners with potentially catastrophic legal consequences – including forfeiture of the ERC funds, penalties, interest, legal fees, and even criminal liabilities.

The purpose behind the ERC was to provide businesses with a measure of economic reprieve for maintaining their employees amidst the Covid-19 closures and hardships. However, the credit has resulted in a slew of unsubstantiated claims by promoters “selling” the ERC.

As a result, the IRS took drastic measures to stop such abuse on September 14, 2023 by issuing a moratorium on all new claims until at least the end of the year. The IRS also simultaneously issued multiple ERC guidelines, articles, and updates. Items of note in these guidelines is a proactive avenue for business owners to withdraw improperly filed claims and a procedure for settlement. The IRS also disclosed that thousands of claims have already been referred for audit, 252 criminal investigations are initiated involving 2.8 billion in potentially fraudulent ERC claims, and 15 federal charges with 6 convictions have resulted.

The Transformative Benefits of Telemedicine & Telemental Health

The advent of technology has revolutionized the healthcare industry, opening  up new avenues to provide medical care and mental health support remotely.  Telemedicine and telemental health, also known as teletherapy, have emerged as  powerful tools, bridging the gap between patients and healthcare professionals.  This essay explores the transformative benefits of telemedicine and telemental  health, highlighting their impact on accessibility, convenience, cost-effectiveness,  and patient outcomes. 

Telemedicine and telemental health have significantly enhanced accessibility  to healthcare services, especially for individuals living in remote or underserved  areas. Geographical barriers and long distances no longer hinder patients from  receiving necessary medical attention. Telemedicine allows patients to consult  healthcare professionals, regardless of their physical location, ensuring that even  those in rural or isolated communities can access specialized care. Similarly,  telemental health enables individuals with limited access to mental health  services to receive timely support from licensed therapists or psychologists,  reducing the burden of travel and increasing overall accessibility. 

One of the key advantages of telemedicine and telemental health is the  convenience they offer to both patients and healthcare providers. Telemedicine  eliminates the need for in-person appointments, minimizing wait times and  reducing the inconvenience of scheduling conflicts. Patients can consult with  healthcare professionals from the comfort of their homes, saving time, effort, and  transportation costs. This flexibility is particularly beneficial for individuals with  mobility limitations, elderly patients, or those with chronic illnesses who may find  it challenging to travel to healthcare facilities. Likewise, telemental health allows  individuals to receive therapy sessions remotely, accommodating their personal  schedules and eliminating potential barriers such as transportation or childcare. 

Telemedicine and telemental health have proven to be cost-effective alternatives  to traditional healthcare delivery models. By leveraging technology, healthcare  professionals can remotely diagnose and treat patients, reducing the need for  expensive hospital visits or emergency room admissions. Telemedicine also  eliminates the costs associated with travel, parking, and childcare that are typically  incurred during in-person medical consultations. Furthermore, telemental  health services can be more affordable compared to traditional therapy sessions,  making mental health support accessible to a wider range of individuals. These  cost savings benefit both patients and healthcare systems, allowing resources to  be allocated more efficiently. 

The utilization of telemedicine and telemental health has shown positive  impacts on patient outcomes. With telemedicine, patients can receive timely  medical consultations, leading to early detection and intervention for various  health conditions. Remote monitoring devices and telehealth platforms enable  healthcare professionals to track patients’ vital signs, manage chronic conditions,  and provide proactive care, ultimately improving patient outcomes. Additionally,  telemental health offers continuous support and therapeutic interventions  to individuals with mental health concerns, reducing the risk of relapse, and  improving overall well-being. The accessibility and convenience of teletherapy  ensure that patients can maintain consistent therapy sessions, leading to better  treatment adherence and higher success rates. 

Telemedicine and telemental health have ushered in a new era of healthcare  delivery, bringing numerous benefits to patients and healthcare providers alike.  Improved accessibility, convenience, cost-effectiveness, and enhanced patient  outcomes are just a few of the transformative advantages offered by these  technologies. As technology continues to advance and evolve, the potential for  telemedicine and telemental health to revolutionize healthcare and mental  health support is immense. By harnessing the power of telecommunication, we  can create a more inclusive, efficient, and patient-centered healthcare system,  ultimately improving the overall well-being of individuals around the world. 

At HealthCues, we provide workplace solutions and help improve employee  health for the future. We offer many preventative healthcare benefits, including  telemedicine and teletherapy. Are you ready to take advantage of our preventative  healthcare platform? Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.

8 Ways Artificial Intelligence Can Improve Supply Chain Operations

As many companies are beginning to realize the benefits of warehouse automation, other advanced technologies are now emerging to help overcome supply chain challenges. From sourcing and procurement to distribution and delivery, artificial intelligence (AI) is making strides across the entire supply chain, enabling companies to increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve the customer experience. Below are eight ways companies can utilize AI to optimize their supply chain operations. 


Safety and Security

Whether protecting trailers and assets in the yard or protecting workers and goods in your distribution center, AI can be used to monitor your warehouse operations. When properly deployed, AI-enabled surveillance cameras can automatically detect security threats or safety hazards and send real-time alerts to managers and workers to help minimize response time and protect your most valuable assets. Data collected from event logs, such as the number of near-miss accidents or personal protective equipment (PPE) violations, can be utilized to take corrective action like reviewing best practices, providing additional training or other remedial measures.  


Warehouse Automation

As distribution and fulfillment operations continue to cope with labor and space availability issues, more and more businesses are turning to goods-to-person systems and processes. Automated technologies driven by AI, including autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and articulating arm robotics, have been gaining in popularity and are being deployed at rapid rates in distribution and fulfillment centers. Facility designs and implementations are now including AI-equipped technologies to perform repetitive labor tasks and minimize travel, enabling a more efficient flow of goods and increasing efficiency within the distribution center. 


Predictive Maintenance

Equipment failure can result in costly repairs and downtime. AI can analyze data from equipment sensors to monitor system status, identify maintenance needs and predict failure before it occurs, enabling companies to improve equipment performance and minimize disruption to warehouse operations.


Inventory Management

Inventory issues are a major challenge at this time due to the various events that have affected consumer spending habits. Overstocking and stockouts can negatively impact customer satisfaction and a company’s bottom line. AI can analyze historical and real-time data to forecast demand and ensure companies have the right inventory available in the right place at the right time.



From rising rates to delivery delays, transportation presents a number of challenges for shippers. By analyzing real-time data on weather, traffic and other factors, AI can identify the optimal transportation route to reduce delivery times, fuel consumption and costs while also improving customer satisfaction.



Some products, including food items and international shipments, are required to meet strict quality or regulatory standards. AI-enabled software solutions can provide an added layer of traceability to help minimize risk, ensure compliance and increase customer confidence.



Implementing sustainable practices has become a top priority for supply chains, as companies strive to improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. By monitoring and evaluating supply chain operations, AI can help companies make more sustainable decisions to reduce waste, conserve energy and minimize their impact on the environment.


Labor Management & Back-Office Operations

In addition to balancing workforce labor on the warehouse floor, AI can also automate many back-office processes, including document and report generation, data entry and analysis, and invoicing. 

As AI continues to evolve, it will become a critical tool for supply chain success and business longevity. Contact us today to learn how your company can utilize the latest technologies to optimize your supply chain operations and create a competitive advantage.
