June 13, 2022
Waterloo, Ontario, June 13, 2022 – Baysil, a digital health ecosystem enabling safer obstetric healthcare, announced today they have appointed Dr. Neil Naik to their senior leadership team. Dr. Naik joins Baysil as Chief Medical Officer effective June 1, 2022.
Dr. Naik brings a wealth of experience to a young technology startup with a bold vision to enable new models of care delivery. He holds a Doctorate of Medicine from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and completed his Family Medicine residency at Memorial University in Newfoundland. Currently, he has an independent family practice in Kitchener-Waterloo. Dr. Naik is also Assistant Clinical Professor at McMaster University, Advisor to eHealth Centre of Excellence, and Chair of the KW4 Ontario Health Team (OHT). And he regularly provides primary healthcare in remote villages of Tanzania as part of his work for the Canada-Africa Community Health Alliance (CACHA).
“Neil’s unique perspective comes from his depth of medical knowledge and breath of advisory work throughout the healthcare system”, says Arjumand Ateeq, Baysil’s CEO. “He has been advising Baysil for several months and has guided our initial focus on obstetrics. We are thrilled to have him join our leadership team.” Dr. Naik will guide Baysil’s market and product strategy. As someone who faces the pain of helping distressed patients everyday using inadequate tools, he will ensure Baysil is building technology that significantly improves the ability of clinicians to deliver safer care. He will also build partnerships with healthcare stakeholders and offer perspective on key markets to help achieve Baysil’s vision.
In Dr. Naik’s own words, “Whether I’m caring for people in remote villages of Tanzania or an urban city in Canada, the healthcare needs are the same; what is different are the people who give and receive care. Traditional approaches to healthcare technology have not worked. I joined Baysil to discover how to realistically build the future of healthcare delivery so it works for both the patient and the clinician inside a modern healthcare system. I’m excited about what we could build together.”
Baysil is a rich ecosystem that connects obstetric healthcare practices in a shared workspace and integrates smart decision tools so healthcare providers can make safer decisions about care. It was founded by Tech veteran and former PTC engineer, Arjumand Ateeq, after losing a family friend to preventable complications from depression and stroke. Baysil’s vision is to build the foundational platform on which global teams of clinicians collaborate to deliver impactful care. To learn more visit www.baysil.com.
