The UK HealthTech AfyaRekod launches Universal patient portal for worldwide health data mobility management.

AfyaRekod is a Universal Patient Portal, built on block-chain technology that will transform the face of health care across the UK and the World. Through a secured centralized platform (www.MyRekod.com) patients can securely managing their health records, including health diaries, prescriptions and hospital visit summaries. The AfyaRekod Universal Patient Portal offers a secure decentralised, intelligent telehealth solution, healthcare resources, symptom trackers, reminders and notifications, as well as the mobility of the record across multiple channels and devices. 

AfyaRekod was founded by CEO John Kamara in 2019 as an Adanian Lab start-up with seed funding from Mac Venture Capital and Next Chymia. Kamara saw first-hand how the lack of medical records and static data could lead to poor medical management when a friend died having received the wrong medical intervention in an emergency. Kamara built an AI platform that would track health data, aimed at bridging the gap between health care and treatment, anywhere, anytime for patients, medical professionals, providers and organisations.

The pandemic has pressed the fast-forward button, bringing an urgency into health data accessibility and analytics. This is a global problem that is being addressed by a patient-centred health care innovation – AfyaRekod.

ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK – MR ROLAND BUTCHER, 1ST BLACK CRICKETER TO REPRESENT ENGLAND

Roland Orlando Butcher (born 14 October 1953, Saint Philip, Barbados)[1] is a former cricket player and coach, who played for England in three Test matches and three One Day Internationals from 1980 to 1981. He is recognised as being the first black cricketer to represent England.[2] His brief international career was somewhat overshadowed by the death of Ken Barrington, and the ‘Jackman affair‘.

cousin of Basil, Roland Butcher had come to the United Kingdom at the age of thirteen from his native Barbados.[1] He was an aggressive middle-order batsman, who represented Middlesex between 1974 and 1990. His intuitive batting style owed much to the archetypical West Indian calypso flair.[1] He “secured his place in history when he became the first black player to represent England, making his Test debut at Bridgetown in 1980-81”.[3]

Butcher came to prominence during Middlesex’s successes in 1980 when they won the County Championship and the Gillette Cup, impressing with a rapid half-century in the final of the latter.[4] He had actually made his England debut two weeks later, impressing with another half-century on his one-day international debut against Australia.[5] He struggled more however on the 1980-1 tour against the West Indies who had the most powerful bowling line-up in the world at the time and did not play for England again.

In 1983, “he suffered a sickening injury which threatened his eyesight when struck by George Ferris“, but managed to recuperate and return to the sport.[3] He continued to enjoy success with Middlesex, winning the County Championship again in 1982 and 1985, and featuring in victories in the finals of the NatWest Trophy in 1984 and 1988 and the Benson and Hedges Cup in 1983. In 1987 he won the Walter Lawrence Trophy for recording the fastest century of the season (in terms of balls faced) against Sussex

EX-ENGLISH CRICKETER, ROLAND BUTCHER, LAUNCHES REVOLUTIONARY NEW CRICKET BAT AIMED AT SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVING BATTING PERFORMANCES

EX-ENGLISH CRICKETER, ROLAND BUTCHER, LAUNCHES REVOLUTIONARY NEW CRICKET BAT AIMED AT SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVING BATTING PERFORMANCES

The long-awaited Roland Butcher Cricket Training Bats were launched at the famous Lord’s Cricket

Ground in London recently. The bats have been specially designed to tackle a technical problem that

plagued the ex-English cricketer throughout his 20-year professional career.

“Throughout my career I had a technical problem with the balls that came into the right-handed

batsman, and I had great difficulty in correcting this problem throughout my career,” explained

Butcher. “Once I had retired this continued to weigh heavily on my mind and I started investigating

different ways to solve the problem. This problem was solved by designing a bat that corrected this

technical flaw. I firmly believe that my new training bat will help all current and future cricketers

develop the batting skills and techniques required to be successful in their elite careers.”

Butcher was the first black cricketer to be selected to play for England and had an illustrious career,

which included playing for Middlesex County Cricket Club.

The first bat he designed was aimed at mastering the in-swinging and off spin deliveries that right-

handed batsmen typically face. Once he was completely satisfied with the design, size, weight and

balance he then sent it for rigorous scientific testing, which produced exceptional results.

But his research did not stop there. It then occurred to him that the oppose must also be true for

players who have difficulty playing the ball that moves or spins away from the right-handed

batsman. The second bat was designed to master the away swing and leg spin deliveries.

“In relation to the first two bats that were designed for the right-handed batsman, there are

equivalent bats reversed for the left-handed batsman,” said Butcher.

The third and final training bat in his series is designed for mastering the playing of spin, fast bowling

and concentration. 

“Whilst designing my bats I was a High-Performance Coach with the International Cricket Council

(ICC) under ICC High Performance Head Coach Bob Woolmer, the former England player and South

Africa and Pakistan Head Coach. Bob advised me to have the bats scientifically tested”, explains

Butcher.

And in 2002, Butcher registered the three bat inventions with the patent office, and they were sent

to Loughborough University for testing. Loughborough University is one of the most advanced

Universities in the world of Science and Technology in Sport. The scientific study and testing were

conducted by the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering at the

same University.

The process took two years to complete, and in 2004 Butcher was handed a complete and

comprehensive thesis. “The thesis from Loughborough University confirmed scientifically that all the

bats worked and produced the exact results I was anticipating. Not only that, but it proved that the

batter’s performance was significantly improved!”

The results also confirmed that the training bats improved the accuracy of the bowlers significantly.

“This result was a pleasant surprise as I had designed the bats exclusively for batting,” concluded

Butcher.

The bats are now being manufactured by Stone Hill and distributed by B3Cricket http://www.b3cricket.com

FOR MEDIA HERE IS THE INFORMATION AT A GLANCE:

1. Assists batsmen with mastering the Out-swing.

ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK – DR ESTHER SAMSON UKARIA BASED IN GERMANY

Pretty faces and charming smiles often captivate people, but they forget there is more to them than meets the eyes.

​Dr Esther Samson Ukaria (hc) is a Nigerian German, born and raised in Kano, Nigeria, a city renowned for its monuments, crafts, and cultural diversity.

I love New York cheesecake, good cuisine, and just exploring new cities and organizing creative events.

My reputation for professionalism, humour, brilliant mind, and commitment to helping others often stand out among those who know me.

My stubborn part can sometimes get the best of me, but I am a quick learner and quick to apologize for my mistakes.

​I hold 1st Class Hons. International Relations & Strategic Studies from Igbinedion University (2019), and IHK-Commercial Administration from Robert-Schuman Berufs Kollege, Essen Germany (2015), Personal Development Certified Coach from the Empowerment Academy (2021) in the U.S.A. Business Management Certification from European Business University Luxembourg (2022)

​Having started my career as a trainee at the Stanbic IBTC bank in Nigeria, I moved to Nordrhein-Westfalen in Germany. I have acquired skills from different international companies over the years. Through it, I have developed conceptual skills, empowered my clients and my community during difficult times, and developed feasible solutions for various problems.

Moreover, I have always been passionate about philanthropy and writing heart- warming stories about life struggles. I would have chosen this career if I had won a lottery in secondary school. Nonetheless, in 2015 this dream became a reality. The House of Mercy Network Foundation was born. Our feeding program has impacted over 8,000 lives in Kogi, Nigeria and over 100 in Tamil Nadu, India.

Also, we have implemented renovation and training projects there. In 2022, we will launch a new project to provide a mother and child sunshine package to pregnant mothers.

This project aims to reduce the high poverty rate among expectant mothers in that area.

Through my role as an ambassador at the European Business University in Luxembourg, students can study accredited impacted courses on a scholarship.

In recognition of these achievements, I was awarded an honorary degree in humanity from the Faith Fuller Seminary affiliated with the Evangel Christian University of America U.S.A on December 5th, 2021. In addition to writing seven books, I've graced many stages and shared my word of wisdom with others.
