Babak Kazemi leapfrog's into global markets with payments & entertainment innovation

Babak Kazemi, techno-innovator, blockchain enthusiast, & entrepreneur based out of California has introduced Remotiq and Starz2u, two different platforms bridging the gaps of two different markets.

Remotiq is an easy-to-setup, versatile platform online that allows businesses & individuals to gain access to fluid payment capabilities in tandem with crypto & fiat currencies alike, addressing a crucial need especially for Medium-sized Corporates, SMEs, and Venture Builders today who want a singular yet versatile payments management touchpoint, binding their multiple business ledgers together into one concise payment processor across legacy as well as the newage mediums.

Starz2u on the other hand is a platform that further humanises celebrities by allowing people in MENA & APAC regions to actualise their “dream” celebrity moments through a variety of requests they can make to their favourite artistes, athletes, speakers, influencers, & actors, all through a very luxurious, VIP look & feel. While similar models exist, their functionality is limited, and their focus is predominantly on and for North American markets & personalities. In contrast, Starz2u will be at the forefront of providing a more glocal and eclectic bridge between celebrities & their fans, particularly for markets where audiences have more endemic tastes.

Both platforms are the brainchild of Babak Kazemi, an upcoming author and disruptive-tech advocate who has spent the last twenty years creating some of the biggest entertainment events across different locations in United States, Malaysia, Dubai, and Iran. Amidst that rich tapestry of events, Mr. Kazemi also spent a decade conceptualising unique training and learning frameworks for leadership, which he utilised as a marketeer and coach for his own ventures alongside for others who brought him in as project advisor over the years.

“Decentralised Digital Assets and Applications are the future in terms of mankind having a more accessible life,” says Mr. Kazemi.

Remotiq and Starz2u are just the first of many more projects to come. Babak Kazemi & his group of companies have had their eyes and hands on Blockchain for the last three years, given his passion to leverage disruptive technologies in ways that are out-of-box yet impactful to the masses.

Health Carousel Announces Acquisition of MEDPATH

Health Carousel, a premier provider of healthcare staffing and workforce solutions, announced today they are strengthening the power of the Health Carousel Locum Network further with the acquisition of MEDPATH.

MEDPATH, located in Trumbull, CT, was founded in 2012 by Timothy Kouble who will continue to lead the company after the acquisition.  MEDPATH will continue to operate under its own brand in Health Carousel’s growing portfolio of locum tenens brands.

MEDPATH is an innovative physician workforce management company that is mission driven to help healthcare organizations improve patient care and save lives.  They partner strategically with their clients and bring an ecosystem of powerful physician staffing resources, capabilities, and horsepower designed to get physicians to patients faster – with the goal of containing costs.  It has a hyperlocal physician network and strong loyalty with providers who can deploy quickly to provide coverage when needed.

MEDPATH joins a strong family of HCLN brands, including NEXTLocums, Onyx M.D., Lucidity, and Vitruvian Medical, which are expected to become the 10th largest locum tenens company in the country, according to the most recent estimates from Staffing Industry Analysts. This is Health Carousel’s 6th acquisition in the locum tenens space since 2015.

“We are pleased to welcome MEDPATH to our Health Carousel family and are confident that this addition will further increase our track record of service excellence with our customers,” said Bill DeVille, Chief Executive Officer of Health Carousel. “Our healthcare facility partners trust us to solve their staffing problems by delivering high-quality healthcare staff to positively impact their patient care, staff morale, cost of staffing and revenue. The addition of the MEDPATH team and their unique RPO/MSP model will enhance our offerings to clients.”

Health Carousel has a proven track record of helping clients solve their workforce challenges by delivering easier, faster access to a nationwide pool of highly qualified physician and advanced practice providers, demonstrated by winning a 2020 Best in Staffing Client Award for providing superior service to their clients.  MEDPATH is dedicated to that same level of partnership with their clients.

“MEDPATH is incredibly excited to become a part of the Health Carousel Locum Network as we continue to build our unique Physician workforce solutions program,” said Tim Kouble, Founder of MEDPATH. “We connected strongly to Health Carousel’s higher purpose of improving patient lives and making healthcare work better. We’re looking forward to advancing our relationships with healthcare organizations across the country to ensure every patient gets access to quality providers when and where they need them.”
