Health Passport App a Key Next-Step to Reopening Global Economy
TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 9, 2021 / Trxade Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MEDS) an integrated drug procurement, delivery and healthcare platform, today announced that the Company has appointed technology entrepreneur and industry thought leader James Ram to lead the Company’s newly launched MedCheks LLC (MedCheks) subsidiary in its efforts to bring a Digital Health Passport to market – allowing the holder to display vaccination status and test results for travel or access to events and public facilities.
James Ram brings more than 25 years of leadership experience in the travel, tourism and location-based entertainment industry to Trxade, with experience spanning strategic management, business development, investor relations and data management. Prior to joining Trxade, Ram founded Indusa Global, a highly specialized information systems firm for the tourism and national security industry, where he led the Company’s diversification into healthcare, growing the Company’s fledging healthcare business from a single installation to 54 satellite locations servicing over 2,500 facilities. Ram brings a keen understanding of national security to Trxade, as he implemented the first fully biometric ePassport with facial scans and fingerprints in the Americas.
An accomplished strategist with global experience, early on in his career James Ram was honored to be the youngest Senior Fellow with the United Nations Institute of Training and Research. His drive to positively impact the world led him to speaking at many conferences including the World Economic Forum and G15 Summit attended by 17 Heads of State and the United Nations World Tourism Conference.
James Ram will lead the Company’s new MedCheks subsidiary as it seeks to bring its first product, a Digital Health Passport, to market. MedCheks Health Passport will store an individual’s health records safely in one place, allowing the holder to display vaccination status and test results for travel or access to events and public facilities. MedCheks will leverage both state-of-the-art encryption and blockchain technology to conceal all private health data, allowing for the secure exchange of data between passport holder and verifier.
“I am pleased to announce the introduction of MedCheks and its first product, a Digital Health Passport, allowing the global economy the means by which to safely reopen,” said Suren Ajjarapu, Chief Executive Officer of Trxade Group. “Finding a technology leader with a successful track record in innovation like James Ram was critical, as his broad experience with privacy, security and excellent global reputation will prove important as we launch this exciting new product.”
“I am truly honored to lead MedCheks, having been very fortunate in my career to be on the forefront of secure technology systems and their implementation – which allowed me to develop a terrific network of colleagues around the world,” said James Ram, President of MedCheks, a Trxade Group Company. “Like everyone, I eagerly await the reopening of the global economy to safe travel and recreation. I look forward to working closely with Suren to introduce this incredible new product, making a global reopening possible while concurrently creating value for Trxade Group shareholders.”
