MDLink Fast-Tracking Its Telemedicine Platform to Meet the Demand In The Caribbean Countries with an Influx of 400% in Participating Doctors
MIAMI, Fla., June 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ehave, Inc., (OTC Pink: EHVVF) (the “Company”), a provider of digital therapeutics delivering evidence-based therapeutic interventions to patients, announced today its Jamaican based MDLink subsidiary is fast-tracking the development of digital solutions to meet the growing demand of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Caribbean. MDLink was created in 2018 by Trinidadian physician, Dr. Ché Bowen.
Prior to the global pandemic, MD Link had around 40 registered doctors. Since the virus spread to the Caribbean, MDLink has seen a large influx of doctors wanting to be part of its platform. Dr. Ché Bowen, MDLink Founder and CEO, said, “In one day I was seeing about 20 doctors registering. Across the Caribbean we have 300 doctors registered and we are in the process of registering more.” In addition, Dr. Bowen noted that the platform helped to flatten the curve as patients did not have to leave their home to see a doctor. On the patient’s end, utilizing MDLink’s telemedicine approach is usually less expensive than an office visit. For providers, registration is free, and their credentials are checked and verified to ensure they are legitimate.Dr. Bowen’s credentials have earned him invitations to speak at International Conferences and will be a key featured speaker on June 18th, 2020 at the CME (Continuing Medical Education) conference. Dr. Bowen will be educating doctors throughout the Caribbean region about Telemedicine as a COVID-19 solution and teaching them Telemedicine basics. CME credits will be awarded to all participating doctors.According to the World Health Organization (“WHO”) there are 7,690,708 confirmed cases of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) worldwide.
