Multi-Health Systems Invests in SportGait to Provide Medical Decision Support Software for Concussion and Brain Wellness
WILMINGTON, NC, June 7, 2018 /CNW/ - Today, SportGait Inc., a leading provider of patient and medical decision support software used by medical providers of sport and workplace concussion evaluations, announced a strategic partnership and an equity investment by Multi-Health Systems Inc (MHS).
SportGait provides mobile and medical applications using the world's leading validated assessments in an integrated, easy-to-use Platform-as-a-Service for qualified medical providers. In addition, the two companies have agreed to continuing research to use other MHS products for improving youth sport and workplace safety. As part of this agreement, MHS President and COO, Hazel Wheldon, has joined the SportGait Board of Directors.
"We are very excited to have MHS and Hazel join our team," SportGait President and CEO, Chris Newton, said. "MHS is a leading publisher of scientifically-validated assessments, especially in the youth performance arena. Their extensive database of real-world results is just what we needed to help us achieve our vision whereby concussions are treated like any other injury, by a doctor, not on the playing field."
"SportGait has integrated our tests with other assessments to make them available to a new market for MHS," said President and COO Hazel Wheldon. "They are bringing our decades of neuropsychological expertise into 21st century medical practices that are open and near where children live and play. Their management team is experienced and shares our passion for data-driven decision making and I look forward to working with them."
