The new strategic agreement allows Ammeris to further develop its work with both current and future managers and leaders within the health sector, their organisations and supporting them to develop and implement blockchain solutions across their business and in the wider health sector.
Paul Mears, Chairman, Ammeris said: “We are incredibly proud to be one of the organisations to become a VR strategic partner. Personally, I have worked closely with Raji and his team over the last three months as a member of his Advisory Board along with Ethan Gilmore from the Ammeris team and Binod Nirvan who has recently joined us.
The core verticals for Ammeris are health, entertainment, and data management. The work that Virtual Rehab is doing is a perfect match for Ammeris. Ethan and I both have a history of investing in and working with health and virtual reality projects, so it is a project that we were instantly attracted to.
Once we had spent time with Raji, it was clear to us that VR is a project that has already got traction, a professional team, and is making a real difference to people’s lives with a real use case of tokens and blockchain. This is the next step for us as an organisation to support the growth of blockchain use in the health sector.”
On his part, Dr. Raji Wahidy, Founder & CEO of Virtual Rehab, said: “We are extremely excited about our partnership with Ammeris. At Virtual Rehab, we develop solutions to further enhance the mental health and the psychological well-being of the most vulnerable populations out there. We have long been advocates of leveraging technological innovation to drive positive change within our society. This is in-line with Ammeris’ mission, which makes our partnership even more exciting.
We are equally honoured to have Paul, Ethan, and Binod as part of our Advisory Board. Their experience, knowledge, expertise, and network are a great asset to any organisation. They have been closely working with myself and the Virtual Rehab team as we continue to move along the next phase of our development;
