Imagine what is possible when a global workforce can, on demand, access resources, vital information and support, share perspectives, expand their knowledge, collaborate on a moment's notice and deliver on demand customer support. We've been imagining exactly that since we first started working with Google in 2014. Given global workforce trends, demands for expanded customer value, increasing pressure to deliver on Corporate ESG goals and an urgent need to tighten supply chains, we believe technology must be doing more. Whether developing for assisted, augmented and virtual reality or Industry 4.0 or Connected Worker or Metaverse, we must envision all new capabilities and establish new partnership ecosystems that complement, enhance and expand how workforces connect to create internal and external value.
We must create secure new platforms and trusted collaboration tools that match new demands and deliver on new requirements. Working with partners, including Google, Vuzix and RealWear, we are passionate about delivering solutions that get the most out of technology, match near term use case needs and are built to grow with our customers. In 2014 that perspective inspired us to develop HC View, in 2017 we launched GEMINI and in 2022 our latest innovation, Klabra. And we know we are only at the beginning of all that is possible for a global, connected workforce.
Healthcare Delivery To Remote Northern Canadian Communities.
Determinants of health are influenced by political, social, and economic conditions; those circumstances often lead to health care inequalities. The World Health Organizations identifies healthcare access as a key determinant of health due to the profound impact it's absence can have on health outcomes. This is especially relevant to vulnerable populations living in remote areas of the Canadian North. The University of Saskatchewan partnered with Hodei Technology to test the use of its innovative GEMINI solution featuring Google Glass EE1 to improve access to health care in remote northern communities of the Canadian Province of Saskatchewan. The initial experience using GEMINI to support primary and specialized health care delivery is very promising. It offers user friendly, stable connectivity and had great acceptance by health care providers and patients. "We are convinced that point-of-care diagnosis and treatment to be transformative in the deliver of health care in general but will be vital for remote, underserviced populations with limited access to care.
