VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – March 15, 2016) – Moseda Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MSD) (“Moseda” or the “Company“), a technology company focused on developing progressive mobile health (mHealth) and telemedicine solutions for Community-Based Healthcare, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, CareKit Health Corp., has been awarded a $67,500 grant from Ontario Centres of Excellence’s (the “OCE“) SmartStart Seed Fund.
CareKit Health, based in Hamilton, ON, was founded in 2015 by Leo Godreault, RN and Giancarlo De Lio, MBA, two experienced healthcare and IT entrepreneurs. The CareKit Health platform allows complex patients to receive high quality care at home, improving health outcomes, enhancing quality of life for patients and families and reducing the cost of care delivery.

CareKit was acquired by Moseda in February 2016 to expand Moseda’s Community Care product portfolio.
“With this investment from OCE, CareKit will be able to support the pilots it has in the pipeline with healthcare organizations in the US, UK and Canada,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Moseda. “OCE has been an invaluable partner and mentor to the CareKit team. We’re excited to see CareKit Health leverage the SmartStart Seed Fund investment to demonstrate the value of its innovative solution in caring for patients in the home. The pilots will validate the flexibility of the CareKit platform, which can support patients with a wide variety of complex conditions including Congestive Heart Failure, COPD, dementia, diabetes and those in need of post-surgical or palliative care.”
