A system that incorporates teachings of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a water vehicle including a deck that accommodates a group of passengers above a waterline and an observation gondola accommodating the group of passengers below the waterline. The access between the observation gondola and the deck is provided by way of an aperture in a top of the observation gondola. The observation gondola includes a transparent floor and walls allowing the group of passengers to enjoy an underwater experience without exposure to the water and while maintaining an unobstructed panoramic view of the underwater environment. The underwater observation gondola can include a substantially open top, which may include a sun screen or weather protective cover. The open top exposes the observation gondola to fresh air, while alleviating any claustrophobic sensations as might otherwise be experienced by passengers during underwater observation. Other embodiments are disclosed.

Canopy Partners, a North Carolina-based healthcare technology company, just released an innovative software solution called Canopy CARE, an end-to-end automated referral management platform for radiology and imaging providers. Canopy CARE – Clinical Automated Referral Engine - streamlines the imaging patient experience while reducing claims denials and accelerating cash collections. With Canopy CARE, administrative burdens are reduced because it automates much of the manual workflow associated with eligibility checking, payment estimation, and even prior-authorization. “In 2016, the CAQH Index, a respected industry source, estimated that the healthcare industry could save $9.4 billion annually with electronic claims transactions. As a partner concerned with effective and efficient business practices for imaging providers, we took notice and found a solution,” noted Worth Saunders, Canopy Partners CEO. The Canopy CARE platform is built on technology already in use at more than 500 hospitals across the country. Canopy Partners added features and tailored the software specifically for the outpatient imaging world, including a real-time dashboard to monitor the status of every patient encounter and claim. “The physicians in our community, as well as our office staff, were getting bogged down in the sending and receiving of paperwork. The process for referring patients to us had frankly become too burdensome and lengthy a process. Something had to give. We asked Canopy to come up with an idea to help,” said Bob White, COO of Greensboro Imaging. Making the referral process clean and easy is long overdue. Canopy CARE includes four components to simplify the physician referral process. CARE Eligibility - increases data quality while reducing administrative expenses. The combination of electronic data with payer portal data returns the most comprehensive eligibility and benefit detail, resulting in a clear picture of a patient’s benefits. CARE Estimation - automates and accurately produces patient estimates before or at the time of service, increasing up-front cash collections and decreasing write-offs to bad debt. CARE Authorization - automatically queries payer websites for authorization information by payer/patient/procedure. CARE quickly returns authorization status, number, and expiration date in a fraction of the time manual checking takes. CARE Integration - enables secure data exchange and connectivity to and from referring facilities. Using Canopy Partners’ exclusive interface engine, orders are received and results sent in a variety of formats. This technology makes it easier for referring physicians and imaging providers to coordinate patient care. “Access to an electronic referral management platform for the imaging space is a game changer,” said Worth Saunders, Canopy Partners CEO.
