GWS Production AB: GWS Production AB plans a launch of a new mobile-based service for better emergency care when traveling

Global Warning System (GWS) starts a subsidiary, which will launch a
smartphone app containing a database with quality rated hospitals all over
the world. This functionality will also be integrated in the GWS Safeture
service concept. GWS has identified a need for directing travelers to the
best and closest emergency treatment in case of injury or illness abroad.

Global Warning System (GWS) continues to reinforce their offering within
personal security and launch new, innovative services. The background for the
planned app launch, is a need for help to get the best possible emergency
care in case of accident or illness when traveling abroad. Today, there is no
easily accessible information about quality rated hospitals except for data
in limited registers, which makes it difficult for travelers to find the best
treatment.

Injuries account for 10% of global mortality, mainly in low-income countries.
Every 25th second a person dies because of injuries, according to a WHO
report from 2013. If you look at the Swedish situation specifically, the
number of Swedish citizens perishing abroad has tripled during the last
fifteen years and now counts to over 1000 yearly, according to the Swedish
Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The insurance company Länsförsäkringar reported
2012 that 20 000 Swedes are injured abroad every year, with Thailand and
Turkey at the top of the list. According to another survey published last
December in daily newspaper Sydsvenska Dagbladet, every third Swede had at
sometime been injured or ill during a travel abroad.

Hospitals that meet certain quality criteria, show less complications and
lower mortality in connection with severe injuries. Mortality can be lowered
with 15 - 25% (WHO 2004). Thus it is not only about getting emergency
treatment, it is also about getting to the right hospital for treatment. The
new app is designed to help travelers find the hospitals that offer the best
medical treatment, no matter where in the world the user happens to be.
Through integrations between the hospital database, positioning services and
offline maps, a very powerful and comprehensive service has been developed.
The user will also for the first time have access through the mobile phone to
a global hospital offline map, that works even if data traffic is down. There
is also a need among for example insurance companies with own hospital maps
to add information to their services. Today there is no solutions for
directing injured people to the right hospitals when telecommunications are
overloaded, which can often be the case during catastrophes or major
incidents.

The service will be integrated with the GWS Safeture service and rolled out
successively during 2016. The GWS Safeture service concept is a personal
security service when traveling, which provides critical information about
disasters and other threats, directly in the traveler's smartphone through an
app that is easily downloaded. Except for the Safeture integration, the
service will also be provided as a consumer app service and as integrated
content to insurance companies and to the travel security industry.

Andreas Rodman, CEO of GWS, comments on the launch:

"We see that this is a complement to the Safeture service concept. Now, we
will not only give alerts and information in real time about threats and
incidents, we will also give additional value and guide the users if they are
in a situation where they need to seek hospital care. Our services are about
saving lives, and this is yet another way to improve security for people when
traveling."
