KLAIM Announces First of Its Kind Financing Solution For Medical Claims in the UAE

First of its Kind Financing Solution For Medical Claims in the UAE

DUBAI, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, July 31, 2021 / — KLAIM, a healthcare technology platform dedicated to making medical claim management simple and hassle-free, has just launched its new medical financing solution for the UAE market. Designed specifically for healthcare providers, this is the first-ever solution of its kind in the entire MENA region.

Rejections and delayed payments from insurance companies have always been a grave concern for healthcare providers in the UAE. Payments worth millions of dirhams remain held up and it takes up to six months to be cleared. Naturally, these delays lead to serious disruption in cash flow for healthcare providers. This is where the new financing solution from KLAIM comes in.

KLAIM healthcare receivables purchase is a financial plan that solves cash flow hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and laboratories problems resulting from outstanding insurance receivables. Thanks to advanced Healthcare analytics, the solution introduced by KLAIM allows healthcare providers to receive upfront payments for their claims within 48 hours, without waiting for their insurance companies to pay them. The company has already signed an agreement with Doctors Clinic and Diagnostic Center (DCDC) in Healthcare City to solve their medical claim payment issues and in several advanced discussions since the service was launched at the beginning of July.

“We identified that delay in the payments was a big problem when it comes to billing and payments. Traditionally banks have shied away from financing smaller institutions. We came up with this innovative solution that combines technology and finance for healthcare, to help the provider, especially the smaller ones, to keep the lights on and operate to offer the best service,” said Karim Dakki, Founder and CEO of KLAIM.

KLAIM’s new client Doctor Clinic and Diagnostic Center (DCDC) is a noted healthcare provider delivering world-class patient care and diagnostic services… Like many other healthcare providers in the region, DCDC was in a tight spot because of payment delays by insurance companies. It affected their performance as lots of time was lost following up on payments. A robust solution to this problem was essential for them to focus entirely on providing quality healthcare services.

“Solving this issue of delay in insurance payments will help us concentrate on our medical service; improve our service quality and daily performance of the customer care. At the same time, our staff will be paid on time and we will be able to concentrate more on our main business, which is medical service,” said Dr. Ahmad, the owner of the clinic DCDC.

“There is a big demand for this service in the medical field and it will help many clinics to succeed, survive, and improve at the same time. I'm sure that this will also have a significant positive impact on the entire medical service sector in Dubai,” Dr. Ahmad added.

Cybersecurity Expert Ian Marlow Discusses How Cyber Crimes Increased In 2020 and 2021

Cybersecurity expert Ian Marlow

Cybersecurity expert Ian Marlow

Cybersecurity expert Ian Marlow recently discussed how cyber crimes have increased in the past two years.

The COVID-19 pandemic increased uncertainty about the economy as well as everyday life”

— Ian Marlow

BOCA RATON, FL, FL, USA, July 30, 2021 / — The COVID-19 pandemic took more people online than ever before. This created new opportunities for many, including cybercriminals. Cybersecurity expert Ian Marlow recently discussed how cyber crimes have increased since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold.

"The COVID-19 pandemic increased uncertainty about the economy as well as everyday life," Ian Marlow said. "The exploitation of this fear, alongside an increased online presence, made circumstances that were ideal for cybercriminals."

Ian Marlow explained numerous types of cyber crimes have increased over the past two years, including phishing, online scams, malicious domains, data harvesting malware, and misinformation. Unfortunately, the fight against cybercriminals has not decreased as the pandemic has begun to subside.
"We will likely see cyber crimes continuing to increase throughout the immediate future," Ian Marlow said. "People are still working from home, which has created a long list of new vulnerabilities. This combined with increased activity by cybercriminals is keeping us in the cybersecurity field on high alert for as long as we can tell."

Marlow stated that the COVID-19 vaccine does not mark an end or decrease in cybercrimes. This is because an entirely new round of phishing related to the vaccine and medical products will likely be created. These attacks are used as ways to steal important personal and company data.

Ian Marlow added that many businesses have seen financial benefits from employees working from home. Many employees are continuing to work remotely or in a hybrid of at-home and at-office work. This substantially increases remote work from inside and outside the corporate network. It also means bringing your own devices, which can bring about other cybersecurity issues.

This means they will likely continue functioning in this format or with several work-at-home days per week. Marlow suggested cybercriminals will continue to develop more ways to attack these work-at-home systems.

"It has been stated that cybercriminals were able to ransom businesses for millions of dollars throughout the pandemic so far," Marlow said. "They're using the same tactics they've used for decades now; phishing, hacking, social engineering, and more."

Marlow concluded that it pays for companies to focus on increasing cybersecurity now and in the coming years. Data breaches during the pandemic averaged $21,659 for a single incident, with 5 percent of incidents reaching $1 million or higher.

"There's no better time than now to hire a cybersecurity expert to ensure your line of defense is up-to-date," Ian Marlow finished. "Invest in educating your workforce and in updated cybersecurity technologies to protect yourself, your employees, and your bottom line.

Leizan Capital analyses Cape Town – The New Home of Fintech Start-ups

Cape Town is home to over hundreds of fintech start-ups

, the Information Communication Technology (ICT) industry in Cape Town

The financial services sector in South Africa

CAPE TOWN, CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, July 30, 2021 / — Cape Town is home to over hundreds of fintech start-ups and is a up and coming fintech hub in South Africa. As we set our sights on global expansion, Leizan Capital, already incorporated in BVI, places Cape Town in one of its top picks as its business grows

Fintech Sector
Africa is a developing continent, with a rapidly expanding population and economy. This encompasses the broader tech community as well as fintech. Developing and upcoming cities in the emerging market, particularly Africa, are beginning to arise and make their presence known. With the highest number of successful Information Technology companies in Africa, Cape Town is an important centre for the industry on the continent.

South African internet users rose from 2.7 million in 2008 to 24.5 million in 2013, representing a 55 percent yearly increase. With 1 500 firms, the Information Communication Technology (ICT) industry in Cape Town is highly developed and serves as a key center within the province. Small and medium-sized innovative firms that provide ICT services such as software development, web development, and consultancy make up the majority of Cape Town's ICT sector.

The City of Cape Town has a strong ICT sector, having spent ZAR544 million in internet infrastructure as part of its broadband infrastructure initiative to date. This includes 789 kilometers of fiber-optic cable placed in the City's own duct network, which has increased the City's bandwidth by almost 3000 times.

With over 40 000 employments (more than double the total of Nairobi and Lagos combined), Cape Town is Africa's most important technological centre. The increasing number of South Africans with access to financial services and the developing middle class, as well as mobile and online banking, are boosting the growth in the finance, and business services industry.

Financial Services Sector
The financial services sector in South Africa is supported by a strong regulatory and legal framework. Both have sophisticated infrastructure and hundreds of local and international entities to support activities. This aids in the provision of a comprehensive set of solutions for a variety of industries. Commercial, retail, and merchant banking, as well as mortgage financing, insurance, investment, and asset management services, are among them. The financial services industry contributes to the growth and transformation of the South African economy by channeling savings into investment and credit.

Furthermore, the government's ambitious reform program has centered on enhancing market behavior, financial inclusion, and transformation, as well as ensuring the safety and soundness of financial institutions. Significant progress has also been made in the fight against financial crime, which will continue into 2020 and beyond to build on the significant success already made in these areas.

CIT and VISA Begin Development of an Unmanned Systems Playbook For Hampton Roads and Eastern Shore to meet growing customer demand for innovative UXS solutions.

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, USA, July 30, 2021 / — The Virginia Institute for Space Flight & Autonomy (VISA) and Virginia’s Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) have launched a program to develop a Hampton Roads-Eastern Shore Unmanned Systems (UxS) Strategic Playbook to focus on the continued development and expansion of unmanned ground, aerial, maritime, and space technologies.

The announcement of the playbook and search for UxS solutions began with the Unmanned Systems UxS Industry Engagement Summit on July 28 at Half Moone Cruise & Celebration Center at Nauticus. The event, attended by more than 150 Hampton Roads innovation leaders, presented challenges identified by public safety leadership during an intensive maritime safety workshop held a few weeks ago. Those challenges were presented at the Summit to industry representatives to initiate creative solutions and problem-solving options that utilized autonomous technologies for faster, safer, and more cost-effective emergency response.

The workshop was conducted with support from the Office of the Virginia Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security. The participants, which included the U.S. Coast Guard, the Virginia Port Authority, the Center for Naval Analysis, and local public safety agencies, evaluated new autonomous technologies and determined their potential impact and effectiveness at maritime ports. It also included a several mock challenges to focus engagement with industry on specific real-world scenarios using autonomous technology for better, faster, cleaner, and more efficient emergency responses.

VISA is a research enterprise of the Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center (VMASC) at Old Dominion University in Norfolk. As the nonprofit operations arm of the Virginia Innovation Partnership Authority (VIPA), CIT is the primary source for information, grants, partnerships, and seed funding for UxS in the Commonwealth. Through a memorandum of understanding, VISA will initiate and implement pilot programs in Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore to support CIT’s UxS strategic plan to grow the industry across Virginia.

“VISA and CIT will work together to identify promising business opportunities for innovators of unmanned technology in Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore,” said Tracy Tynan, director of the Virginia Unmanned Systems Center at CIT. “By working with VISA, we will capitalize on the strengths of the region to build on the Commonwealth’s industry leadership to encourage customer demand.”

In addition, CIT is creating the Virginia Public Safety Innovation Center (VPSIC), which will be led by Chris Sadler, the deputy chief/deputy director of York County Fire and Life Safety. The VPSIC will test emerging technologies and their ability to aid and benefit first responders and the communities they serve. It will help ensure public safety agencies across the Commonwealth have access to the latest technology to support their missions.

“The agreement between VISA and CIT is another positive step forward for the growth and development of unmanned systems technologies and opportunities in Virginia,” said David Bowles, the executive director of VISA. “The ongoing development of the UxS Strategic Playbook for Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore will help pilot projects and initiatives move from discussion to opportunity as region’s needs and challenges are identified.”

The VISA and CIT executives say there are numerous existing resources to build the UxS industry in the region, including a long coastline with access to open water, world-class rocket launch facilities, federal defense and civilian government installations for research and development, advanced manufacturing centers, and a highly skilled workforce.

About VISA: The Virginia Institute for Spaceflight and Autonomy (VISA) is chartered to grow the entrepreneurial ecosystems for space flight and autonomy. The Institute will be the hub to leverage Virginia’s world-class assets in space launch, autonomous systems, modeling and simulation and data science to solve real-world problems.

Blockchain Algorithms Report Record-Breaking Profits

Pandemic Fuels Huge Quarterly Trading and Profit Market Gains

itive storm’ for big tech as pandemic fuels huge quarterly sales and stock market gains

Blockchain Algorithms have reported record-breaking quarterly profits on Tuesday night as the firm continue to benefit from a pandemic that has created a “perfect storm” for big sports traders…”

— Jasper Jolly

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 30, 2021 / — Blockchain Algorithms have reported record-breaking quarterly profits on Tuesday night as the firm continue to benefit from a pandemic that has created a “perfect positive storm” for big sports traders…

Blockchain Algorithms made a £12m profit for the three-month period that ended in June, its best fiscal third quarter in its 6-year history, boosted by strong trading at Euro 2020.

The software based investment company have experienced unprecedented growth over the past 12 months and it shows no sign of slowing down in 2021.

Blockchain Algorithms have slowly been gaining market share in the alternative investment market due to their patented trading algorithms that have allowed clients to benefit from sporting events around the world since 2015.

Blockchain Algorithms are only going to become bigger due to the huge news out of the US last year as the Supreme Court ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) is unconstitutional, changing the future of sports betting in the United States. Before this ruling it was illegal to gamble in the United States except in certain states and cities such as Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

USA Markets

The results come after Tesla reported a record profit on Monday in one of the busiest ever weeks for quarterly earnings results. The big tech blowout earnings continue with Facebook on Wednesday and Amazon on Thursday.

Collectively, the market value of Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and Facebook is now worth more than a third of the entire S&P 500 index of America’s 500 largest traded companies, as their share prices have soared during the pandemic.

Thomas Philippon, an economist and professor of finance at New York University, said big tech firms have been the biggest economic winners from the pandemic as global lockdowns have pushed more businesses and consumers to use their services.

“They were already on the rise and had been for the best part of a decade, and the pandemic was unique,” Philippon said. “For them it was a perfect positive storm.”

Analysts at Morgan Stanley reckon Alphabet is on course to achieve full-year net income of $65bn, a 59% increase on 2020. Its annual sales are, the bank reckons, on track for $243bn – a $60bn increase on last year.

Alphabet’s shares have risen by 75% in the past year to a record $2,670, but analysts predict they could climb higher still despite regulators around the world threatening to curb its dominance of the internet search market. Morgan Stanley said the stock could reach as high as $3,060, and even under a worse case scenario is unlikely to fall below $1,800.

“Google websites growth is likely to rebound in ’21 as we believe there are several underappreciated products driven by mobile search, strong YouTube contribution, and continued innovation, such as Maps monetisation,” Nowak said in a note to clients.

Apple has been making so much money that over the past eight years it has bought back $421bn worth of shares, but it still has about $80bn of cash sitting on its balance sheet.

When Microsoft reported a 31% rise in profits at its last quarterly results, its chief executive, Satya Nadella, said it was “just the beginning” as the shift to digital technology was “accelerating” fast.

Sign up to the daily Business Today email
The share price rise of the big tech firms has made billions for their super-rich founders and early investors. Forbes magazine calculated recently that there are now 365 billionaires who made their fortunes in technology, compared with 241 before the pandemic.

Collectively, the world’s tech billionaires hold personal fortunes of $2.5tn, up 80% on $1.4tn in March 2020. Amazon’s founder and chief executive, Jeff Bezos, remains the world’s richest person with an estimated $212bn fortune, and is closely followed in the league table of the wealthy by Tesla co-founder Elon Musk with $180bn, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates with $151bn, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg with about $138bn.

Zuckerberg believes the internet will take on an even bigger role in people’s day-to-day lives in the future, and instead of interacting with it via mobile phones people will be immersed via virtual reality headsets.

He said Facebook would transition from a social media platform to a “metaverse company”, where people can work, play and communicate in a virtual environment. Zuckerberg said it would be “an embodied internet where instead of just viewing content – you are in it”.

Staff Offshore Outsourcing is Booming Post-pandemic

People are realizing that offshore staffing can save 70% on staffing costs whilst at the same time providing easy access to highly skilled staff.”

— Derek Gallimore

MANILA, PHILIPPINES, July 30, 2021 / — A recent report from Outsource Accelerator showed that businesses were increasingly turning to staff outsourcing as they emerge from the pandemic.

The outsourcing marketplace generated 639 inbound inquiries from Western businesses in June, with quotation requests representing 1,935 full-time roles. The market value of these contracts was estimated at $58,050,000. The requests came from businesses across 29 different sectors as diverse as finance, property and healthcare and originated from 49 countries.

The Outsource Accelerator June Performance Report showed that inquiries for the month were slightly higher (2.5%) than the inquiry numbers in May 2021 and 602% higher than the inquiries compared to one year earlier.

Over the last 12 months, Outsource Accelerator generated outsourcing requests from 3,600 businesses across the globe, representing 8,681 full-time roles and over $260m of enterprise value.

The popular online marketplace for outsourcing services generated 61,309 unique visitors and 192,903 page views in June and 1.34m page views over the last 12 months. The website generated 250% more page views in June 2021 compared to June the previous year.

“The outsourcing sector is booming right now. The pandemic has caused businesses to seek out operational efficiencies and cost savings and to reconsider employment norms”, commented Derek Gallimore, Outsource Accelerator’s CEO. “Equally, the pandemic has shown businesses that remote work is a viable alternative to localised office-based employment. As a result, people are realizing that offshore staffing can save 70% on staffing costs whilst at the same time providing easy access to highly skilled staff,” continued Gallimore.

The outsourcing industry is known to be a countercyclical sector and generally sees spikes in demand during economic downturns and recessions. It is thought that the acceptance of remote-work and the continued digitisation of the modern workplace is also contributing to the growing shift towards offshore staffing and a more globalised workforce.


The Outsource Accelerator platform is the world's leading marketplace and advisory for Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), offshore staffing, remote and global employment. Outsource Accelerator helps businesses explore, build and operate offshore and remote teams.
