TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2016 /CNW/ -- Ehave, Inc. (OTCQB: EHVVF), a healthcare company dedicated to empowering the mental health community with next-generation digital solutions, today announced the appointment of Prateek (Teek) Dwivedi as Ehave's President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Dwivedi will also serve on Ehave's Board of Directors. Mr. Dwivedi will leverage his 20 years of technology and healthcare leadership experience to accelerate the development of the company's Ehave Connect cloud-based platform, which is intended to provide mental health practitioners with an objective, data-rich network designed to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders. In addition, Mr. Dwivedi will focus on advancing Ehave's MegaTeam digital assessment and rehabilitation tool, which is currently in clinical development to evaluate its ability to assess, monitor and improve the core symptoms of ADHD.
Ehave Connect is a digital platform that clinicians can access from any computer, tablet or mobile device. It is planned to be launched initially for the assessment, monitoring, management and remediation of ADHD. To develop and grow its platform, Ehave will focus on establishing partnerships with leading mental health assessment providers that can benefit from having their products made available and seamlessly integrated for clinicians as part of Ehave Connect.
"Teek has a proven track record of developing and applying new technologies to solve important healthcare challenges," said Scott Woodrow, Chairman of Ehave's Board of Directors. "His leadership and experience at Princess Margaret Hospital, where he developed a cancer informatics platform that is successfully being used today to improve patient care, brings to Ehave the exact knowledge we need to build out the next version of Ehave Connect, which we believe can integrate objective data from multiple sources to enhance mental healthcare. In addition, Teek's tenure at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, where he directed the technology infrastructure, has been instrumental in helping to refine our product and vision. We're confident that Teek will drive innovation at Ehave, and empower mental healthcare providers with novel tools to improve the lives of patients and their caregivers."
"I am thrilled to join Ehave's team of mental health experts and software developers and together we will bring innovative solutions to the mental healthcare community," said Mr. Dwivedi. "Patients and their caregivers are often hindered by an outdated and inefficient mental healthcare delivery system. With Ehave Connect, and our other solutions now in development, we believe we will enable practitioners to make better treatment decisions across teams and disciplines while keeping patients informed and engaged throughout their mental healthcare journey."
Prior to joining Ehave, Mr. Dwivedi led Cancer Informatics at Princess Margaret Hospital at the University Health Network in Toronto, Canada. In this position, Mr. Dwivedi was responsible for building a next-generation health and research informatics platform designed to capture and analyze cancer patient data. From 2008 to 2011, Mr. Dwivedi was the Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, where he led the implementation of a new IT strategy for infrastructure, application, team and vendor management that was directly tied to the hospital's overall strategy to ensure clinical goals were being met promptly, embracing IT as an enabler for clinical transformation. Before his tenure at Mount Sinai, Mr. Dwivedi was the Vice President of Operations at AudienceView Ticketing, where he managed a team of 47 engineers. Mr. Dwivedi has held key strategy and product development positions at Cascada Mobile (exit via acquisition), Casero (exit via acquisition) and Solect Technology group (exit via acquisition). Mr. Dwivedi received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo.
