Philadelphia, PA, April 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp (CSE: VSBY) (Frankfurt 5VS) has announced that it has formed an alliance with Muller Group International (MGI), joining with other MGI partner companies in providing comprehensive turnkey security solutions for corporations, governments, entertainment and sports venues and schools.

MGI was founded by Jeffrey S. Muller, a former FBI Supervisory Special Agent who serves as the firm’s president and CEO. Based in Washington, DC, MGI operates in 25 countries and utilizes innovative technologies to safeguard governments and corporations from cyber threats and weaponized alternative attacks.

VSBLTYis a leading retail software and technology company that provides facial recognition and weapon detection using the power of machine learning and computer vision. Its proprietary VSBLTY Vector™ product can be used alone or in combination with any form of digital signage to provide perimeter security by looking for “persons of interest” or individuals carrying weapons with the intent to cause harm.

MGI and VSBLTY recently teamed as technology partners to provide security to a Fortune 50 company at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Muller said. “With the help of VSBLTY’S state-of-the-art software that provides facial recognition and weapon detection, we were able to provide perimeter security for a major global corporation over the five-day event,” Muller explained. A local database was constructed of several hundred “known” persons, who represented an active threat to the client, its assets and its brand, he said. Muller added, “Using more than a dozen hidden cameras, MGI and VSBLTY interfaced with the client’s operations team, providinglive photos that enabled them to do a visual comparison with database photos to determine if the individual was an active threat.”

VSBLTY Co-Founder and CEO Jay Hutton said, “With more and more so-called soft targets being attacked around the world, heightened security is needed virtually everywhere. In most instances, our face-on cameras provide better facial recognition than overhead CCTV cameras to enable faster, professional security responses to threats. “With this partnership with MGI we are advancing the increasingly important ability to provide security where it has never been available before,” he added.

Muller pointed out that companies, as well as sports and entertainment venues, or even schools, can no longer rely solely on physical “guards, gates and guns” to maintain safety or mitigate risk. He explained, “To keep ahead of cyber and physical attacks we need increasingly to rely on innovative technologies.”

MEC Helen Sauls-August attends induction seminar for medical interns, 12 Apr

Eastern Cape Health MEC, Ms Helen Sauls-August will attend the induction seminar for first year medical interns who have been allocated to do internship at the four accredited institutions in the province. The purpose of the seminar is to optimise medical internship training in collaboration with the accredited institutions by orientating young doctors on departmental priorities, policies, prescripts, HPSCA guidelines and ethical code of conduct.

Eastern Cape Department of Health and the HPCSA are, most of the time inundated with complaints from the consumers of health services about malpractice related to incompetence and negligence amongst the Health Professionals which can be attributed to lack of supervision, coaching and mentoring during training and lack of information and guidance on priorities and strategic objectives of the department.

The malpractice and negligence by health professionals impact negatively to the provision of quality health care services to Eastern Cape citizens and has resulted in medico-legal claims. Between 2010 and 2017, the department has cumulatively paid R 1.1 billion of medico legal claims and R 433.526 mil on Legal fees. For 2017/18, the department paid R423.396 mil and R44.452 mil to the State Attorney. Subsequent to malpractice and negligence complaints, it becomes incumbent and in collaboration with the accredited institutions to induct all first year Medical Interns on policies, prescripts, HPSCA guidelines and ethical code of conduct.

There are four Institutions accredited for training of Medical Interns in the province. The accreditation status is subject to regular accreditation evaluation visits and adherence to the prescribed criteria and requirements as stipulated by the HPCSA. Training is provided for a period of 24 months under supervision and guidance, in accredited institutions, with the aim of developing the intern’s knowledge, skills, understanding and experience in patient care in order to function as competent and safe medical practitioners. The training is comprehensive and complementary to the health care system being developed in South Africa.
