Franklin Schurz of Schurz Communications to be Featured on Close Up Radio

BOZEMAN, MONTANA, UNITED STATES, February 24, 2020 / — The newspaper industry has struggled to keep up with rapid advances in technology. As we look to the future, attempting to serve audiences will continue to be a challenge.

Despite sweeping technological changes in the creation, production, distribution and delivery of newspapers, Schurz still believes journalists are up to the challenge the future presents.

“It's amazing what you can do when you get a lot of good people and you have a common purpose and then you just let them do what they're terrific at,” says Schurz. “Journalists are the most passionate people there are, so there will always be people who will get the information will out there. People want to hear the truth.”

As a philanthropist, Schurz is focused on conservation for the creatures and plants in natural habitats. He is also involved in philanthropic efforts to help young people who may be underrepresented in the field of education.

“It just seemed like thing to do to possibly make a difference. I’ve met some of these kids and they are fantastic,” says Schurz. “All of them are the first in their family to attend an institution of higher education and they're very appreciative of it. These are kids who actually want to work to get an education that will help them do a better job helping others.”

The SafeCare Group Celebrates Its 10 Year Anniversary

Progress and Growth

Private AI and Healthcare Analytics Company marks a major milestone

I take great pride in what we have accomplished over the last decade. For me, the significance of this milestone is more than just keeping the lights on – it’s about fixing a broken US health system”

— Yisrael M Safeek, MD, MBA, Founder & CEO of The SafeCare Group

LEXINGTON, KY, USA, February 23, 2020 / — The SafeCare Group achieved another major milestone for a startup business by celebrating 10 years in successful business operation. The information technology firm has grown into a healthcare analytics powerhouse with SafeCareSoft and SafeCare AI.

“It’s been a long and challenging journey to make it to the 10-year mark after having started with nothing but a laptop and a vision,” says Yisrael M Safeek, MD, MBA, Founder & CEO of The SafeCare Group.

“I take great pride in what we have accomplished over the last decade. For me, the significance of this milestone is more than just keeping the lights on – it’s about fixing a broken US health system that destroys human lives. To say that I am grateful and humbled would be an enormous understatement. I am so grateful to all of the people who supported us along the way.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Business Employment Dynamics, less than 30% (less than ⅓) of all startups ever reach the 10-year mark.

It is quite the accomplishment for the company to reach the 10-year milestone considering it has operated the way it started – debt free with no loans.

Even more significant, the company was launched in 2010 at the height of the Great Recession when companies were firing employees and closing their doors.

In 2010, Dr. Safeek hired a team of software developers and programmers to develop custom Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. In 2013, the company created the EMR-based PulseChex software for clinical integration, which allowed it to analyze data and publish ratings and rankings on more than 4,500 different US hospitals. site was up in 2013. The consumer-oriented service helps consumers make informed decisions about their health care. The Star Ratings include quality measures for the routine care an individual receives when being treated for heart attacks and pneumonia to quality measures that focus on hospital-acquired infections and hospital-acquired complications.

Based upon hospitals performance trends, the company in 2014 launched a new EMR-based SaaS to satisfy Joint Commission’s physician privileging requirements and another SaaS to help hospitals with Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Value Based Program (HVBP)

By 2015, the company released SafeCare magazine to share important healthcare quality information to the general public and key healthcare stakeholders. The company also released another EMR-based SaaS for the CMS Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP). This was followed in 2016 by yet another EMR-based SaaS for the CMS Hospital Acquired Conditions Reduction Program (HACRP).

More importantly, in 2016 the firm moved aggressively into the artificial intelligence (AI) space via emulation of intelligence and applying machine learning, deep learning and artificial neural networks to EMR data.

In 2017, the firm released its seven point plan to fixing a broken US healthcare system, and this was submitted to the White House. A year later, The SafeCare Group released its 2018 US Hospitals Performance Report, tracking hospital performance in quality, safety, and efficiency over the last five years.

Just last year, the company kick-started America's healthcare revolution with AI platforms that predict patient outcomes and offer real-time, clinical decision support, based on dynamic exploitation and immediate statistical analysis of EMR information. There are now seven AI platforms to:

• Predict Sepsis Progression;
• Prevent Hospital Infections;
• Reduce Inpatient Mortality;
• Lower Hospital Charges;
• Reduce Redundant Hospital Care;
• Cut Avoidable Readmissions.

At the end of 2019, the firm released its Patient Ratings Application – – for patients to connect with great hospitals by sharing actual first-hand care experiences with hospitals.

The SafeCare Group looks forward to many more anniversary celebrations in the future as its footprint continues to grow as a leader in innovative and creative solutions for healthcare quality, safety, and efficiency with clients across the United States and strategic partnerships overseas.

Dr. Safeek stated, "What I’m most proud of is that we’ve continued to stick to our core mission by innovating, disrupting, and transforming, and as a result, we have disrupted and revolutionized conventional healthcare.”

About The SafeCare Group®
The SafeCare Group is focused on helping patients by extending our products across their healthcare journey – everything from finding a hospital, writing reviews, and staying connected afterwards. In 2019, The SafeCare Group launched to allow patients to share care experiences, and in 2013, the to empower healthcare consumers seeking to find dependable hospitals that deliver high-quality care.

Forward Edge AI Awarded Grant from National Science Foundation for robocall blocker application.

Small Business Innovation Research Program Provides Seed Funding for R&D for innovative robocall blocker technology.

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2020 / — Forward Edge AI has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $225,000 to conduct research and development work on detecting and blocking robocall scams, disinformation, misinformation, and mal-information.

Americans received 26.3 billion robocalls in 2018 and in March 2019 a new monthly record of 5.23 billion robocalls was reached according to the FCC. Robocalling scammers rely on technology that works on a large scale, and new schemes are getting smarter and pose an even bigger threat in the future. Recently, President Donald Trump signed a bill that increases fines on criminal robocall violations and cracks down on companies making the calls, as part of a federal push against telephone scammers.

Gabriel’s Roboblocker leverages new decentralized ledger technology with blockchain encryption, swarm intelligence, natural language processing, and real-time adaptive classification anomaly detection and clustering algorithms to block robocalls and reduce connection delays on all devices across all networks. Gabriel’s broader impact goals are to reduce the volume of robocalls and scam phone calls by 18%, reduce related fraud by $4 billion annually, and to make it safe for Americans to answer their phones again.

“NSF is proud to support the technology of the future by thinking beyond incremental developments and funding the most creative, impactful ideas across all markets and areas of science and engineering,” said Andrea Belz, Division Director of the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships at NSF. “With the support of our research funds, any deep technology startup or small business can guide basic science into meaningful solutions that address tremendous needs.”

“The key objective of our SBIR is to reduce robocall related scams by $4 billion annually. The Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Swarm Intelligence innovations incorporated into the Gabriel product represent a revolutionary leap in our ability to detect disinformation, and block them before the scams can metastasize and claim new victims,” says Eric Adolphe, CEO of Forward Edge-AI, Inc.

Once a small business is awarded a Phase I SBIR/STTR grant (up to $225,000), it becomes eligible to apply for a Phase II grant (up to $750,000). Small businesses with Phase II grants are eligible to receive up to $500,000 in additional matching funds with qualifying third-party investment or sales.

NSF accepts Phase I proposals from small businesses year-round. Small businesses with innovative science and technology solutions and commercial potential are encouraged to apply. All proposals submitted to the NSF SBIR/STTR program, also known as America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF, undergo a rigorous merit-based review process.

About the National Science Foundation’s Small Business Programs: America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF awards $200 million annually to startups and small businesses, transforming scientific discovery into products and services with commercial and societal impact. Startups working across almost all areas of science and technology can receive up to $1.5 million in non-dilutive funds to support research and development (R&D), helping de-risk technology for commercial success. America’s Seed Fund is congressionally mandated through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The NSF is an independent federal agency with a budget of about $8.1 billion that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering.
About Forward Edge-AI, Inc.: Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, the company provides end-to-end software and mobile application development services focused on securing devices on the forward edge.

CEO Richard Gurewitsch Seeks to Expand Business Relations In Underdeveloped Countries

MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, February 21, 2020 / — In this day in age, it seems that in order to carry out a business plan, it is essential to work with a partner that has extensive resource connections in order to make things happen. Not for Richard Gurewitsch. The serial entrepreneur has made a name out of himself by looking forward to the road less traveled and taking business into countries that might not seem as developed as they are in the western world. By partnering with Cuban affiliates, Richard Gurewitsch is a trailblazer in expanding business ties to the rest of the world.

Originally from Florida, Richard Gurewitsch started LLAMACUBA in 2010 when he noticed an opportunity as a result of the United States opening up telecommunications to Cuba. "We developed a VoIP (voice over IP) platform with discounted prices in Phone calls from [the] US to Cuba to serve a sector of the Market that have been traditionally under-deserved," said Gurewitsch noting the internationally-charged servicing reason for why he started his business in the first place. The business was a success and they were able to expand services into all parts of the country from both Europe and Latin America, giving connections to millions of households to their families in other parts of the world.
After the success of LLAMACUBA, Richard Gurewitsch continued on his international trajectory by founding HaitiPhone with the mission of serving another traditionally underserved market in Haiti. By applying the same principles in Haiti as he did in Cuba, Richard Gurewitsch was able to turn HaitiPhone into a major service provider to Haitians that needed to connect with their families residing outside of the country but needed to do so at a price that was affordable.

Thanks to the success of both of these businesses, Richard Gurewitsch is seen as a maverick CEO In all parts of the telecommunications industry in the United States and abroad. This success has spurred Gurewitsch to found his own network group that specializes in the telecommunications and virtual travel industries. With offices all over the greater Latin American and North American areas (as well as future expansion into the Spanish-speaking European market), Richard Gurewitsch is truly a CEO of the world.

With a work schedule that would include managing these large conglomerates, you would think Richard Gurewitsch would like to relax. This couldn't be farther from the case. The businessman is the true definition of a workaholic as he recently partnered with the state of Florida with his Holidays Caribe brand to offer affordable air travel rates from the United States to countries in Latin America and the Carribean.

When It comes to providing for underserved immigrant communities, Richard Gurewitsch is truly a man of the people. By expanding business relationships from the US and into the Latin American countries, expect the results of his hard work to come to fruition in the generations to come.
