Published

 on

Comium, who settled fully its pending license fees (2020 and 2021) before their due date, based on PURA’s request, thanked on Wednesday November 24, 2021 The Gambia’s President his excellency Mr. Adama Barrow, its attorney general and minister of justice honorable Mr. Dawda Jallow, its Minister of information and Communication Infrastructure honorable Mr. Ebrima Sillah and the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) represented by its Director General Mr. Yusupha M. Jobe for their efforts, understanding and goodwill to resolve the issues that had loomed over its operation in The Gambia, helping to unblock the majority of the offset operators including Gambia Telecommunications Cellular Company Limited (Gamcel).

The company also stressed that a number of media outlets worked to draw a rift between Comium, PURA, and the Ministry of information and communication but to no affect.

In parallel, Comium as well as its investor Monty Mobile have been working tirelessly to not only provide financial backing to the company but also bring forth investments to the country meant to enhance the lives of the Gambian people.

Investments and technical backup from Monty Mobile will be used to evolve Comium’s current network to the latest cutting-edge technology. These plans were welcomed by local authorities, as they come in alignment with The Gambian’s officials’ goals and objectives to transform the country into a prominent ICT services country.

The deal will allow Comium to bring forth more of its application services running on its wireless network in an attempt to boost the country’s state of productivity, create jobs, and inject The Gambia with investments to accelerate its economy.

Global Health Technology Platform – Proximie – Announces Partnership With Vodafone Business To Increase Access To Surgical Healthcare And Training

Published

 on

January 11, 2022: Proximie, the global health technology platform digitizing operating rooms around the world, announces a partnership with Vodafone Business.

As part of Proximie’s mission to save lives by sharing the world’s best clinical practices, the new partnership will build on the existing relationship between the two companies bringing its world-class connected surgical care software together with innovative technologies from Vodafone Business, including 5G, IoT, and Edge Computing.  

The partnership will accelerate the roll-out of Proximie’s platform as it looks to grow more rapidly in 2022 and beyond and will advance access to digital surgical solutions for both patients and healthcare professionals. This will address two of the main challenges in healthcare: making healthcare service delivery more efficient and providing better training for the healthcare workforce – both vital in addressing current surgical backlogs and improving patient outcomes.

Data is compelling on the effect of the pandemic in healthcare and the need for solutions such as Proximie. Current estimations suggest 2.4 million operations will have been canceled by 2021 year-end, and a report by the British Medical Association forecasts that by 2043, medical workforce shortages could be up to over 80,000 doctors.

Proximie is creating a global network of operating rooms interconnected by the world’s best clinicians, to create a future vision whereas many incisions as possible are informed by artificial intelligence, and clinicians are empowered with real-time diagnostics, data, and analysis. Healthcare experts can virtually ’scrub-in’, record, and interact with any connected operating room in the world to enable, accelerate and improve surgical mentoring, proctoring, and technical expertise. 

Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram, Founder and CEO of Proximie, said:

“Proximie has started 2022 with huge momentum with this latest partnership announcement. Having the best connectivity is imperative for delivering digital health services at scale, so we are thrilled to partner with Vodafone Business to leverage its 5G capabilities and cutting-edge technologies such as Edge Computing.

“Building on our existing relationship will accelerate the roll-out of our platform in the UK and across Europe. We will be able to provide connected surgical care to a wider audience and continue delivering impact by sharing the best clinical practice and ultimately saving lives.

“It further consolidates Proximie’s position as best-in-class and extends our existing lead in the HealthTech space. We are hugely excited to continue the collaboration with Vodafone Business.”

Mark Allinson, Business Development Director, Vodafone Business, said:

“This partnership with Proximie cements our existing relationship and will be an enabler of their connected surgical care solution through increased access to Vodafone’s technologies and platforms.  

The Vodafone Centre for Health with Deloitte is committed to helping more people gain access to healthcare by increasing the number of connected solutions for both patients and healthcare professionals.

We understand the critical role technology will play in transforming healthcare and, by bringing together Proximie’s expertise and Vodafone’s capabilities, we can accelerate the innovation needed to the drive efficiencies and improve patient care.”
