SNOMED CT supports athlete care at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang

London, United Kingdom, Feb. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SNOMED International announced today that its SNOMED CT global standardized clinical terminology will be used to support athlete care and treatment at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

Used in more than 50 countries worldwide, SNOMED CT is an international standard for clinical terminology. It enables the global exchange and analysis of clinical information in electronic health records through a codified language that spans countries, languages and health information systems. SNOMED International demonstrates its commitment to excellence in healthcare at the Olympic Games through its charter support of the Olympic Healthcare Interoperability (OHI) Initiative, set to launch March 6, 2018.

The SNOMED technology will be deployed through GE Healthcare’s Athlete Management Solution (AMS) – an analytics tool that collects multiple kinds of data, including imaging scans, patient vitals, and venue, event and sport-specific information, and provides real-time dashboards that help medical staff identify trends in injury and illness.

“As an international organisation committed to the interoperability of health information, SNOMED International is pleased to help support athlete health at the upcoming Winter Olympic Games,” said Don Sweete, CEO of SNOMED International. “Harnessing the power of structured clinical terminology, SNOMED CT makes it easier for data to be portable from one system to another, and from one Olympic Games to the next”, Sweete offered.

Designed by clinicians for clinicians, SNOMED CT’s 340,000+ clinical concepts enable a unique partnership with technologies so that clinicians can record information in the language and level of detail they prefer. SNOMED CT enables the full benefits of health information systems to be achieved by supporting both clinical data capture, and the effective retrieval and reuse of clinical information.

“Standardized data collection and real-time analytics are key to delivering high quality, efficient care at the Olympic Games,” said Jonathan Murray, Managing Director, Research Circle Technology, GE Healthcare. “Through our work with SNOMED International and the Athlete Management Solution (AMS), we will bring global standardized clinical terminology to Korea for the first time, helping clinicians to promote athlete’s health and ensure they are best positioned to compete.”

California State Court Rules in Favor of CP Kelco in Trade Secrets Theft Case

Former Employee Found Guilty of Misappropriation of Trade Secrets

ATLANTA, Feb. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CP Kelco, a leading global producer of specialty hydrocolloid solutions, announced today that a California state court issued a judgment in its favor in a legal case filed against one of its ex-senior scientists, Dr. Chienkuo “Ronnie” Yuan, Director of Innovation at DSM (China) Ltd. Dr. Yuan was an employee with CP Kelco for 14 years before departing in 2014 to join DSM, a subsidiary of Royal DSM, N.V. and a competitor of CP Kelco in the gellan gum industry.

In July 2015, CP Kelco filed a Complaint against Dr. Yuan in San Diego Superior Court, following several attempts to address CP Kelco’s legitimate concerns that the Company’s intellectual property may have been used for the benefit of DSM by Dr. Yuan.

On August 24, 2017, a 12-member jury returned a verdict in favor of CP Kelco on all causes of action, and the State court issued a judgment in accordance with the jury verdict. The verdict specifically found that Dr. Yuan had misappropriated CP Kelco’s trade secrets and used or disclosed those trade secrets with third parties. Further, the jury found that Dr. Yuan breached his confidentiality agreement and duty of loyalty to CP Kelco. The jury also determined that Dr. Yuan knowingly accessed CP Kelco’s computer systems in order to wrongfully obtain CP Kelco property.  Finally, the jury found that CP Kelco was entitled to punitive damages for Dr. Yuan’s willful and malicious misappropriation of trade secrets.

In its Statement of Decision on Punitive Damages, “the court conclude[d], as the jury evidently did, that [Dr. Yuan] assembled internal CP Kelco documents and emailed them to himself (and then to DropBox) not for the purpose of advising on production issues in the waning days of his time in San Diego, but rather so that he would be able to ‘shorten the runway’ once he took up his new employment.”

“This legal case demonstrates CP Kelco’s commitment to taking the appropriate actions to ensure our intellectual property and our employees’ work products are safeguarded from improper and unfair use in the marketplace,” said Didier Viala, President of CP Kelco. “With our rich heritage of technological and product innovation, our global team continues to raise the bar in providing ingredient solutions that meet the evolving needs of our regional markets and  customers.”

LONDON, Feb. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

VistaJet, the first and only global private aviation company, showcases today three exclusive experiences to enrich the exhibitions and global tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller, the most valuable auction of a private collection entirely dedicated to raising funds for philanthropic causes. VistaJet_Shot01_FINAL_Low res

Following the unveiling of early highlights in Hong Kong last November, the global public tour will move to London (February 21 – March 8), Paris (March 16 – 21), Beijing (April 6 – 7), Los Angeles (April 6 – 12) and Shanghai (April 10 – 11), ahead of the final exhibition in New York at Christie’s Rockefeller Center from April 28 until the sale on May 7 – 11. With each stop on the pre-sale tour, additional works of art and objects will be revealed.

With 80% of customers regularly investing in art, VistaJet flies some of the world’s most prominent collectors. Art has always integrated organically into the brand and as the company continuously strives to provide exceptional and curated experiences for members, anytime and anywhere, VistaJet’s three fully customizable The Art of Flying Experiences* will offer exclusive previews, private dinners, lectures and talks, enriching their engagement with the Rockefeller pieces.

The World of Art Experience will offer customers the opportunity to travel to all of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibitions on-board VistaJet for a private tour of the emblematic collection at each location. By booking this multi-leg journey, VistaJet will transport clients and their art at no additional cost on flights anytime, anywhere** and the experience will also include a year-long membership*** to The Cultivist, the global arts club.

The Direct Experience will offer any guest flying with VistaJet to any of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibitions in London, Paris, Beijing, Shanghai, Los Angeles or New York, an invitation to receive a complimentary membership to VistaJet Direct worth $10,000. The Direct membership gives clients access to available VistaJet private flights at special rates from any mobile device, through the world’s first end-to-end business jet app.

The third exclusive opportunity, The Rockefeller Experience, will allow up to 10 guests traveling with VistaJet on one of its iconic silver and red jets to New York, a rare opportunity for a behind the scenes private discovery tour of Kykuit, the historical National Trust landmark of the Rockefeller Estate in Pocantico Hills, before enjoying a Rockefeller-inspired multi-taste feast at an exclusive Upstate New York venue. Guests will then be invited for a personal tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibition in New York, and to view the live auction at Christie’s New York with leading art experts.Claude Monet_Nymphéas en fleur

“The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller is a unique collection of the finest works of art and objects,” said Nina Flohr of VistaJet. “The fact that 100% of the proceeds from the auction of the collection will be donated to charities worldwide is a remarkable philanthropic effort.  We fully support the Rockefellers’ commitment to giving back, and our sponsorship is VistaJet’s way to facilitate and contribute to the exhibitions, auctions, and ultimately, the Rockefeller family’s charitable mission. We are very proud to support their initiative as the key global partner.”

The global nature of the auction and exhibitions aligns seamlessly with the VistaJet brand and its global reach. With a fleet of over 70 super-mid and long range identically designed aircraft, VistaJet guarantees availability within 24 hours to its customers, no matter where in the world they are based. The sponsorship of such a landmark collection is a way for VistaJet to support not only the arts, but David and Peggy Rockefeller’s philanthropic endeavours.

Sales of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller will be conducted in keeping with David Rockefeller’s pledge to direct the majority of his wealth to philanthropy. All the Estate proceeds will be donated to charities, directly benefiting the philanthropic missions that have been maintained by the family for decades.
