Dr Kevin Buckman Named Chairman and CEO of Vantage Health

Vantage Health (the “Company”) (OTCQB:VNTH) today announced the appointment of Kevin Buckman MD FAAIM, DAAUCM, MACOEM, MRO as Chairman and CEO of the Company.

The Company also announced that Mr. Jeremy Barbera, its current Chairman and CEO, is resigning as an officer and director of the Company and will focus on the scientific aspects of the Company’s technology in a non-executive capacity. This action is due, in part, to certain matters involving a company with which Mr. Barbera was associated several years ago. These matters are unrelated to the Company or any aspect of its technology or business.

It is anticipated that preliminary human trials for the Vantage Health Sensor will begin next month at Scripps Translational Science Institute, paid for by a BioPharma partner of the Company. Mr. Barbera will continue to be Chairman and CEO of Nanobeak, which is the private company majority shareholder of Vantage Health.

Dr. Buckman completed his medical training in internal medicine in 1981. He began his research in 1977 in the fields of immunology, cancer, diabetes, and chronic diseases. His discoveries of the roles of inflammation and abnormal cellular environments in cancers and immune diseases have made him a leader in the field. His research has led to his interest in technologies in early diagnosis and treatments, especially in the field of breast cancer. He recently published a book on the subject, Find and Stop Breast Cancer, as well as a book on solutions for diabetes and metabolic syndrome, titled Find and Stop Diabetes. He has worked internationally to advance a number of medical technologies with a focus on early detection of disease, with a primary focus on breast cancer and diabetes.

Dr. Buckman has served as Medical Director in various hospitals and institutions for over 25 years and has over 30 years of hospital and clinical experience. He became Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and a Fellow of the American Board of Emergency Medicine in 1990. In 2006 he became Board Certified in Urgent Care Medicine and a Diplomat. He also became a Fellow of the American Association of Integrated Medicine, and a Certified Medical Review Officer.

Dr. Buckman was the first US Physician to be accepted into the European Group for Breast Cancer Screening. He received some post-graduate training at Stanford University School of Business. He is also the Co-Founder of cancer.im, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for cancer research. Dr. Buckman also serves as CEO of Viratech Corp., which provides open source research using social networks.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
