Multi-Health Systems (MHS), an international healthcare technology developer of scientifically validated assessments, and Ehave, Inc. (OTCQB: EHVVF), a healthcare company dedicated to empowering the mental health community with next-generation digital solutions, today announced that the companies have entered into a partnership granting Ehave access to MHS’s extensive library of mental health assessments. Under the partnership, MHS’s psychological assessment tests will be integrated into Ehave’s Ehave Connect mental health digital informatics platform. Initially, the agreement will focus on MHS tests related to behavior and ADHD, including the Conners® suite of ADHD assessments. Additional products from MHS’s catalog of mental health assessments and services will be added to Ehave Connect incrementally, following successful integration of the Connors suite.
Once integrated, MHS’s Connors ADHD assessments and surveys will be available to mental health practitioners in an entirely digital format, eliminating the need for patients, parents, teachers and clinicians to complete the assessments on paper. The digital administration of assessments will allow clinicians to administer, score and evaluate tests in a streamlined and efficient manner. Once assessments have been completed, results are to be saved in the patient’s portal to be referenced at anytime during the patient’s treatment, allowing easy comparisons if assessments are readministered to evaluate treatment outcomes. Ehave expects to launch the next generation of Ehave Connect, with MHS assessments incorporated, in Canada and the U.S. in Q1 2017.
“Ehave Connect is an impressive informatics platform that we believe has the potential to enhance the administration and evaluation of our extensive catalog of psychological assessments,” commented Hazel Wheldon, President & COO of MHS. “We are excited to work closely with Ehave to launch the next-generation of Ehave Connect with our Connors suite of products and we look forward to integrating additional tests in ADHD and other mental health conditions into Ehave Connect in the future as the platform develops and our partnership expands.”
Ehave Connect is a cloud-based, one-stop digital informatics platform intended to provide mental health practitioners with an objective, data-rich network designed to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders. The platform is rapidly expanding to include a plethora of multi-vendor tools covering all aspects of a patient’s mental healthcare, including assessments, surveys, digital therapeutics, remediation tools, outcomes tracking, data collection, etc. Ehave Connect will consolidate patient information from multiple publishers into one convenient portal that clinicians, patients and caregivers can access from any computer, tablet or mobile device. Ehave expects Ehave Connect to have broad applicability across mental health and behavioral disorders, and is planning to launch it initially for the assessment, monitoring, management and remediation of ADHD. The user-friendly digital interface of Ehave Connect also offers a robust clinical trial management system that is currently being used to manage and capture clinical data from ongoing studies of Ehave’s suite of MegaTeam digital therapeutics for ADHD remediation.
“Patients and their caregivers are often hindered by an outdated and inefficient mental healthcare delivery system. With Ehave Connect, we believe we can modernize the mental healthcare delivery system to enable better treatment decisions across teams and disciplines to improve patient care,” commented Prateek Dwivedi, President and CEO of Ehave. “This monumental partnership with MHS allows us to significantly expand our Ehave Connect platform by integrating MHS’s scientifically-validated and widely-used Connors assessments, which are the industry’s gold standard in behavior assessment. We plan to build upon this flagship agreement by integrating additional products from MHS’s vast catalogue of mental health assessments to create a comprehensive mental health informatics platform that can be used by any mental health practitioner to improve the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of any mental health condition.”
