Nstein Technologies Inc., a provider of software solutions for managing and retrieving unstructured information, has signed an agreement with Health Canada to spearhead a new Global Public Health Intelligence Network (GPHIN) platform for monitoring potential public health risks and threats around the world. GPHIN is an initiative developed by Health Canada in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO).

The mission of the GPHIN platform is to monitor, aggregate, and disseminate health information to the international public health community in order to rapidly provide an early warning of potential public health risks or threats such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), or potential chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear related public health risks or threats. Nstein's technology solution will power the system, providing monitoring, aggregating, and translating information of public health significance in six languages (English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Arabic) for dissemination to the public health community worldwide.
