Cohealo to Mitigate COVID-19 Ventilator Shortages by Sharing Between Hospitals

gbafNews28

Cohealo, a platform for health systems to track and share medical equipment, today announced that the company will begin onboarding customers to their national ventilator sharing network. The solution will enable health systems to monitor capacity and dynamically mobilize ventilators to the hospitals that need them most.

Ventilators are in critical supply from the COVID-19 pandemic. Nationally, there are estimated to be as few as 100,000 ventilators with only an additional 12,700 in the strategic stockpile. The CDC has predicted that 160 million to 214 million people in the United States could be infected during the pandemic, with models projecting a need for more than 250,000 ventilators to combat the outbreak.

The time for sharing is now, said Todd Rothenhaus, M.D., Cohealos chief executive officer. To date, the pandemic has not hit every part of the nation equally. Optimizing ventilators between geographically disparate locations has the potential to stretch existing ventilator capacity to reduce morbidity and save lives.

Cohealo has conducted more than 5,000 shares of 127 different equipment types, with expertise in mobilizing even the most delicate of assets, including microscopes, lasers, and surgical robots. The company retains 99.9% move reliability with specialized workflows that diminish the potential for breakage or delays.

With almost a decade of experience tracking and sharing medical equipment for some of the largest health systems in the country, our team is poised to solve this challenge, said Brett Reed, Cohealos chief operating officer. Hospitals have an urgent need for ventilators, and we have logistics in place to get these assets to patients quickly.”

Using the Cohealo platform, hospitals can upload inventory, track usage, and develop an operating picture of available capacity across all participating facilities. When there are spikes in demand, the system selects the best candidates for sharing and quantities to be moved.

End-to-end logistics is supported directly in the platform, including waybill creation, mobilization procedures, and chain of custody. This process ensures equipment is transported safely and that ventilators are returned to point of origin. Additionally, health systems have access to a digital equipment catalogue that contains profiles of each ventilator type, ensuring all the relevant make/model details and OEM manuals are available for respiratory therapists and biomedical teams.

Together, we have the ability to maximize the use of ventilators during this crisis. We have tremendous capacity as a healthcare system to get doctors the resources they need, said Rothenhaus.

About Cohealo

Based in Boston, Cohealo is recognized as the first company to bring the sharing economy to healthcare. Using Cohealo, health systems can track equipment utilization, identify candidates for sharing, and save money by right-sizing their inventory during the capital planning process. Cohealo optimizes equipment for health systems across the United States and for the National Healthcare Service in the United Kingdom in partnership with DHL. Cohealo has been named to Fast Companys Most Innovative Companies List and CNBCs Disruptor 50.

Third UNESCO Creative Cities Beijing Summit Calls for Open and Inclusive International Cooperation across Regions

gbafNews28

BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — With the theme of "Creativity empowers cities, technology creates the future", the Third UNESCO Creative Cities Beijing Summit, organized by Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission, explored how culture, creativity, and technology can enhance urban city management. The summit participants stressed the importance of international cooperation across regions.

"Digitalization has been a major game-changer and will certainly remain a key component of a new normal," said Lamia Kamal-Chaoui, Director of the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, Small & Medium Enterprises, Regions and Cities. "Many cities have adopted smart city tools, especially to deliver municipal service.

"Cities also have the opportunity to reconsider their tourism growth models and explore alternatives to large-scale tourism, by taking advantage of technology to showcase over-visited global attractions and promoting local industries."

Since Beijing was designated a UNESCO City of Design in 2012, its creative industry has become a new source of economic growth. The transformation of Shougang No. 3 Blast-Furnace – the venue of this summit – from a steel structure in an industrial park into an open space for the public, closely aligns with UNESCO’s mission and priorities.

Advocating for an open and inclusive city cooperation environment, many leaders stressed the importance of international cooperation during the summit.

Virginia Raggi, Mayor of Rome, stated, "We focus on urban regeneration as a factor in improving the well-being of residents and tourists, and strongly believe in international collaboration. Multilateralism and reciprocity represent the founding values of our democracy."

"If something was clear to all of us, it is that ‘no one can be saved alone’," said Enrique Avogadro, Minister of Culture of the Government of the City of Buenos Aires. "We have a unique opportunity to build a new reality and a future different from the one we had in mind. And more importantly, we can do it collectively, listening and giving space to all voices and ideas."

About the Third UNESCO Creative Cities Beijing Summit

The third UNESCO Creative Cities Beijing Summit is held in Beijing during September 17-18, 2020. The summit provides an international platform for discussion and networking, bringing together a diverse set of urban stakeholders, including Mayors and policymakers, representatives from UN agencies, academics and experts, as well as innovators and entrepreneurs. For more information on the summit, click here.

YouTrip CEO, Caecilia Chu Named Top 25 CEO and Woman Leader in Financial Technology in Asia

gbafNews28

SINGAPORE, Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Caecilia Chu, CEO and Co-Founder of YouTrip, Singapore’s leading multi-currency mobile wallet won two major accolades for ‘Top 25  Financial Technology CEOs of Asia for 2020‘ and ‘Top 25 Women Leaders in Financial Technology‘ by The Financial Technology Report. Caecilia is the only business leader to be awarded accolades from both categories. The Financial Technology Report Awards is a prestigious recognition of the exemplary leadership that has driven companies towards continued success in the financial technology industry.

The Financial Technology Report has received several hundred nominations and has evaluated each nominee based on factors such as career achievements and prominence in the field, the reach of the company’s offerings, and the significance of products for the financial technology industry as a whole.

Top 25 Financial Technology CEOs of Asia

Caecilia Chu is amongst the prominent names in the financial technology sector, like Simon Hu from Ant Group to be awarded ‘Top 25 Financial Technology CEOs of Asia‘. The companies represented have become industry leaders in Asia and worldwide and have produced products and solutions that are defining new ways for corporations and individuals to manage their finances.

Notably, Caecilia is one of the two female CEOs to be awarded ‘Top 25 Financial Technology CEOs of Asia for 2020′. As a woman leader, she believes that opportunities are not limited by gender but only by a person’s size of ambitions, capabilities, and hard work, she hopes to inspire more women professionals to step out of their comfort zones to pursue their ambitions, no matter which field they are in. 

Top 25 Women Leaders in Financial Technology

Caecilia also received the accolade as the ‘Top 25 Women Leaders in Financial Technology’ in this year’s nomination. This is not only an affirmation of her success in shaping the financial technology sector but further highlights her achievements as a woman in a male-dominated field.

"It’s an incredible honour to be recognised as top CEO in Asia and woman leader in financial technology, alongside the many great leaders of our industry. This pandemic has been the greatest test of our leadership like never before, but I also see it as an opportunity to emerge as a more cohesive and resilient company," Caecilia shares.

Under Caecilia’s leadership, YouTrip has grown to become one of the fastest-growing fintech companies in Southeast Asia. In less than 18 months since its launch in Singapore, Caecilia has led YouTrip to fundraise the highest amount, US$26m for pre-Series A in the Southeast Asia region and launched in Thailand, in partnership with Kasikornbank, Thailand’s largest consumer bank with over 11.6 million online banking customers. Her speed in execution has established YouTrip as a first-mover and an established pioneer in Singapore and Thailand’s multi-currency payment space. YouTrip is also the first fintech company in Singapore to obtain a direct issuing license from Mastercard, paving the way for new features to be swiftly rolled out and setting a good foundation for the launch in new markets to come.

Despite the global pandemic, Caecilia has propelled YouTrip’s growth to greater heights. Most recently, YouTrip announced a 300% quarterly growth compared to the same period in 2019, as a result of a successful pivot to overseas e-commerce payment.
