Montreal, November 17 (ots/PRNewswire) -
- Exceptional exposure for Nstein Technologies
Nstein Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: EIN), an emerging leader in new Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, received international exposure today at the United Nations at the official launch of the enhanced version of the Global Public Health Intelligence Network (GPHIN). Nstein solutions drive the new version of the Public Health Agency of Canada's web-based public health warnings system, allowing automated analysis of any multilingual information that might indicate a potential threat to the health of Canadians and the global population. The platform produces and disseminates live preliminary reports on a 24/7 basis.
The launch took place as part of a press conference attended by Canada's Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh, Minister of State (Public Health) Dr. Carolyn Bennett and Dr. David Butler-Jones, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, as well as former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn and philanthropist Ted Turner, founder of the CNN network. Messrs. Nunn and Turner are the co-chairs of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, a foundation that is contributing financially to the project. The launch is taking place 10 months after the signature of a collaboration agreement between the Public Health Agency of Canada and Nstein providing the foundation for GPHIN 2, the new automated version of the GPHIN platform.
This collaboration agreement with Nstein enables the automation of GPHIN 2 in order to assimilate huge quantities of multilingual information, warn international authorities in real time of any potential threat to public health, and provide them with the distilled information required to accelerate their decision process.
"Nstein is proud to put its software solutions at the disposal of such an important international project," said Mr. Mario Girard, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nstein Technologies. "This project represents a concrete application of our solutions in an environment where an overabundance of information is transformed into crucial decision-making data. The objective is to enable large organizations to move from a reactive mode to a proactive, and even predictive, mode. GPHIN will achieve this in the area of health, but this can also apply for homeland security, corporate governance, financial analysis or competitive intelligence."
Developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Global Public Health Intelligence Network (GPHIN) is a secure, Internet-based early warning platform.
The GPHIN platform is used by the greater public health community to minimize potential health risks by developing risk management mechanisms and control, prevention and intervention measures.
GPHIN gathers and disseminates all preliminary, pertinent information on emerging diseases, including viruses such as SARS, or any other public health threat on a 24/7 basis, in real time and in multiple languages.
