Worsening Health Crisis Could Fuel a Potential $271(1) Billion Opportunity for Contakt World
Canada CSE: (HELP)
While millions are getting vaccinated, outbreaks continue.
For example, in South Texas, a group of 400 at a summer camp tested positive for the virus, says CNN. At a summer camp in Illinois, more than 80 people tested positive. In Nevada, the state’s positivity rate has more than doubled over the last month to about 8%.
Even the World Health Organization (WHO) is out with warnings to nations planning to relax CV-19 restrictions. All, as global deaths from the virus top four million, with the delta variant now spotted in more than 100 countries – even in those with high vaccination rates, says The Washington Post. In the UK, cases have quadrupled since June.
Japan even just announced a state of emergency in Tokyo with tightened restrictions ahead of the Olympic games.
With virus numbers on the rise — even in vaccinated countries — the world is bracing for another round, which could substantially increase the need for contact tracing.
Sure, lots of people are vaccinated.(6)
Even the U.S. healthcare system wasn’t ready after healthcare spending grew 4.6% in 2019, reaching $3.8 trillion or $11,582 per person.(7)
Despite spending nearly four trillion dollars a year on healthcare even before the global health situation, the United States was caught flat-footed in 2020.
Most of the world was, too.
Health agencies had stacks of cases piling up on their floor from fax machines. Hospitals were bursting at the seams. Overworked staff tried desperately to help as many patients as they could. It was all proof our healthcare system just wasn’t ready– nor is it ready for another potential wave from variants.
How is it possible that we weren’t ready for a global health situation when we spend almost four trillion dollars a year on healthcare?
Because, for decades, we’ve virtually ignored the role health agencies play in the bigger picture. See, a doctor is responsible for keeping you healthy. But a health agency has to keep their entire local population healthy. And while our nation spends nearly $4 trillion on healthcare, health agencies have settled for peanuts.
That’s one reason so many people died, and that’s why you, me, mom-and-pop shops to big businesses — we’re all still at risk from crises like CV-19, shootings, natural disasters, and more. The deaths were a symptom of a broken system, not just a virus.
There was a time when people didn’t wear helmets or seat belts. But those days are over, and so are the days where health agencies are ignored, or employers taking their ability to stay open for granted. There’s a reason that fire alarms and fire stations exist, too.
It’s not because you expect a fire.
That’s where a company like Contakt World (CSE:HELP) comes in, a revolutionary SaaS platform that could become the next big thing in global SaaS. Contakt World is changing the way health agencies and businesses operate. It’s no wonder they’ve received so many accolades so far in 2021:
- BIG Innovation Award
- (2) World Changing Idea from Fast Company (honored in in 2 categories)
- (2) Stevie Awards in American Business
- (2) AVA Awards for their podcast on iHeartRadio, Contakt World: Truth in Health
Just Who is Contakt World (CSE:HELP)?
Frustrated with the global health situation’s toll on everyday people, health agencies, and businesses — Contakt World’s team set out to make the world a better place in 2020.
Along the way, the team learned that not only was the world unprepared… But the virus highlighted disparities in our healthcare system that have existed for 150 years.
In short, CV was just a “great revealer” of inequities.
So health agencies were unequipped to manage data and cases, and the most vulnerable among us were the hardest hit. So Contakt World set out to fix that for good.
Contakt World aims to ensure that a crisis like this never happens again, and that businesses are more equipped to deal with disasters so they can have continuity without shutting their doors (temporarily, or for good).
Contakt World SaaS solutions could be used in all sorts of applications, from disease case management, to school safety, to reporting for hospitals and nursing homes, and more.
The sky really is the limit, especially as the world becomes smarter and SaaS is used to improve operations for public and private organizations alike. That’s probably why SaaS companies are valued so high, because they have such immense potential.
Contakt World (CSE:HELP) Has Large Target Markets U.S. Federal, State and Local Governments — and Private Sectors
There are approximately 3,100+ local health departments across the U.S. and 50 state health departments. Governments and employers alike are investing in damage control and preparedness. Remember, there’s a reason why we have fire stations and fire alarms.
And there’s lots of reasons why health agencies, hospitals, nursing homes, and employers will want Contakt World’s technologies.
