CEO, Mike Gault said “this level of clarity and audibility is a world first and with healthcare scam costing hundreds of billions of dollars every year”. The Estonian models should supply a beneficial template to diminish the scam in the world. The Estonian President Toomas Hendrik asserted that the biggest threat in cyberspace is integrity, specifically the integrity of dependent health care records.

It allow them to respond to any incidents at once, before a possible massive scale of danger could happen.
