Digital health passport: deal for integrating technologies
18 May 2020
International Digital Health Technology firm Circle Pass Enterprises (CPE) has signed a deal with VST Enterprises (VSTE), the British cybersecurity company, to integrate its VCode & VPlatform technologies into the COVI-PASS Digital Health Passport.
Powered by VST Enterprises cybersecurity technology VCode & VPlatform, Circle Pass Enterprises has contracted with VST Enterprises for a fully secure Digital Health Passport – COVI-PASS, to be paired with approved testing kits. CPE is to start shipping orders for the first phased release of 50M COVI-PASS Digital Health Passports to both the private sector and governments in over 15 countries, including Italy, Portugal, France, Panama, India, the US, Canada, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, Mexico, United Arab Emirates and The Netherlands.
The COVI-PASS Digital Health Passport works on an intelligent colour mapping system (green, amber, red) to authenticate and validate a COVID-19 test providing test history and relevant health information. This allows for accurate data metrics to assess those who have tested positive and negative and the location only of their testing. The COVI-PASS Digital Health Passport can be used as an authenticated gateway for Public Services, Businesses and Employees to manage a safe return to work, life, and safe travel.
VST Enterprises CEO and founder Louis-James Davis said: “We are delighted to be working with CPE to supply our VCode & VPlatform technology and Digital Health Passport to create COVI-PASS. It is also very encouraging that so many governments and enterprises across the world are engaging and using the COVI-PASS Health Passport and approved testing kits.
“We firmly believe that the Digital Health Passport alongside government approved testing kits is the key to removing the lockdown restrictions in a gradual and controlled way. The current technology being trialled using bluetooth and proximity apps is fundamentally flawed because of its privacy issues of real time tracking, the security and data breaches which we are already seeing and being reported and the reticence for citizens to uptake and download the tracing app.”
The Manchester based company is also in advanced discussions with senior UK government officials, NHSX and the Home Office about its technology. The cybersecurity technology developed by VSTE can be used by various sectors including critical care workers doctors, nurses and health workers in the NHS and blue light emergency services key workers.
Circle Pass Enterprises COO and co-founder Adam Palmer said: “We are delighted to be working with Louis-James Davis and VST Enterprises to utilise the ground-breaking cyber security technology of VCode & VPlatform to create COVI-PASS and to help tackle this global pandemic. One of the many unique features of the VCode cybersecurity is that the VCode technology can be scanned from up to 100 metres ensuring its social distancing compliance is robust and making it the only choice for a safe and secure digital health passport.
“We are seeing unprecedented levels of interest from governments, businesses and major sporting organisations for the COVI-PASS solution. Due to the secure patented technology of the VCode & VPlatform – its ease of use and rapid implementation globally across all sectors – it is clear that COVI-PASS is the only viable solution for a safe return to work, life and travel protocols. Unlike Bluetooth, QR, or similar proximity apps, COVI-PASS using the VCode & VPlatform cyber security tech does not violate privacy issues of the user.”
