TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/10/08 -- Phantom Fiber Corporation (OTCBB: PHFB) today announced a multi-year contract with MyMedicalRecords.com.au to deliver an integrated mobile solution for their Personal Health Records system. The terms of the contract specify Phantom Fiber is to receive a one-time facilitation fee, as well as ongoing revenue sharing upon implementation of the platform.
The deployment will target the Australian and New Zealand markets. The integration will provide MyMedicalRecords.com.au clients with access, through their mobile device, to all of the functionality they have come to expect from the Internet offering. The seamless integration to mobile will allow clients 24/7 emergency access to medical information at their fingertips, such as medical history, emergency contacts, insurance and prescriptions. The mobile extension will operate on over a 1000 devices including Java phones, Blackberry, Palm, Microsoft PocketPC and Smartphone based handheld devices from anywhere in the world and support multiple languages.
Russell Armstrong, Founder of MyMedicalRecords.com.au, stated, "Internally we knew mobile access was a critical piece to a successful personal health record application. However, as we first launched the development of MyMedicalRecords.com.au we felt the mobile market was still not mature enough to support the speed, security and functionality demands we desired in a mobile offering. Once we were introduced to Phantom Fiber and the performance, portability and most importantly the security inherent to their offering, we immediately realized we could now move forward into the mobile market at an accelerated rate. The mobile solution which will integrate directly into our secure personal health record platform is the next generation of technology that will deliver cutting edge convenience for our clients. After reviewing a number of mobile providers, we could not be more pleased with our choice of Phantom Fiber."
Jeff Halloran, Chairman & CEO of Phantom Fiber, stated, "Being awarded this contract is significant to Phantom Fiber Corporation for a number of reasons. First and foremost we made a strategic corporate decision to demonstrate the breadth of our platform by securing key clients in markets outside of the gaming and entertainment sector where we are recognized as a leader. The healthcare sector along with the successful penetration of the financial sector certainly proves the versatility and confidence our clients have in our product. Equally as important is how well our two organizations complement each other. The key component to a Personal Health Record is always having access to your family's complete health record in a secure central location. Now whether on vacation, while travelling or should a medically related call pertaining to a family member be received, your critical health information is at your fingertips at all times. We couldn't be happier partnering with a recognized leader in this emerging PHR market."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
