RMHC Supports Family during Child’s Hospitalization
Daniel Rich Galinson leverages expertise in sales and payment processing to serve as a national account manager for Solutran in Minnesota. In addition to his professional endeavors, Daniel Rich Galinson supports a number of charitable organizations, including Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
Dedicated to serving children and their families, RMHC recently shared one family’s experience. When 11-month-old Autumn was hospitalized at Nationwide Children’s Hospital for an aggressive brain tumor, her family had to sleep beside Autumn’s hospital bed for about a week while they waited for a diagnosis.
They were soon referred to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio, which gave them a room at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. As a result, they were able to take turns comforting Autumn and resting at the house during Autumn’s four-month hospital stay.
RMHC allowed the family to devote all of their attention to Autumn instead of worrying about mounting hotel expenses, meals, and other distractions. With RMHC’s support, the family was able to continuously stay with Autumn as she experienced a three-month diagnosis process, brain surgery, and 64 weeks of chemotherapy.
A NACHA Push Toward Nationwide Same Day ACH Processing
A national account executive with Solutran, Daniel Rich Galinson has long experience in the transaction processing management sphere. Daniel Rich Galinson stays current on industry trends in Automated Clearing House (ACH) processing, with an emphasis on consumer-to-business payments spanning a variety of retail settings.
In May, 2015, NACHA – The Electronic Payments Association, which manages the ACH Network’s development and governance, adopted a plan for Same Day ACH. This aims to create an integrated network for faster payments across the United States. Under the industrywide program, banks will be provided with a trio of same-day settlement windows. This requirement that receiving institutions process transactions on the same day gives originating institutions confidence in product sales that clear the same day. The end result will be that consumers and businesses alike can transfer money more quickly.
The CEO of NACHA describes the transition process toward three settlement windows on both the credit and debit side as moving ahead as planned. Same Day ACH for credit is expected to be fully implemented by September 2016, while same-day debit will go live one year later.
