VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Premier Health Group (CSE: PHGI, OTCQB: PHGRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “Premier Health”), a Company focused on developing innovative approaches that combine human skill-based expertise with emerging technologies for the healthcare industry, is pleased to announce it will be launching a range of virtual and remote services to be offered to primary care clinics, including Nurses, Medical Office Assistants (MOA) and Office Managers. The initial launch will focus on current Juno EMR clients in BC with plans to roll out to other provinces by the end of Q2 2019.
More and more physicians are opting to become hospitalists, citing higher income and no business overhead or administrative headaches. With a rising number of family physicians retiring and/or burning out, high fixed overhead and the lack of business support represent major deterrents to recruiting young doctors to take over private practices. As a result, patients are suffering. In a cost effective and efficient division of labor, physicians would focus on formulating diagnoses and treatment plans, while nurses and MOAs oversee routine health maintenance, discuss lifestyle changes, and educate patients on their medical conditions and treatment needs.
Premier Health’s remote nurses will be automatically alerted of any patient follow-up. This process is enabled through the Juno EMR with no manual interaction or need for dedicated labour by the clinic. In addition to improving the patient backlog and long wait times that currently afflicts our healthcare system, this remote shared service model will increase the clinics billings revenue by allowing physicians to be dedicated to seeing patients while reducing the clinic’s fixed labor cost. In some cases, where smaller clinics don’t have the resources for adequate patient follow-up, implementing an automatically-prompted and systematic process could significantly improve the quality of care and improve patient health outcomes. In addition to remote shared nurses, Premier is also planning to add remote shared billing services by Q3 2019. This initiative will include forensic billing to detect missed or incorrect billing.
MOAs and Office Managers can improve workflow and increase clinic efficiency by focusing on EMR documentation, managing the day to day clinic operations and other administrative tasks. Premier is launching both a virtual AI powered phone assistant and a shared MOA/Office Manager system for Juno EMR clients. The AI system will be able to triage and manage many of the repetitive tasks while the shared MOA will complete the back-end administrative tasks needed to operate a clinic. Both systems will work seamlessly with the clinic’s current staff and doctors. As an added service, to complement this offering, Premier Health has developed comprehensive templates for manuals required in clinics including, but not limited to, privacy and equipment training manuals. Keeping up with documentation requirements is a real problem for many smaller clinics today who are unable to afford the time or resources involved in adhering to stringent and evolving regulations placed on them.
Rising labour costs and inefficient use of resources amount to increasing challenges in primary care. Premier Health’s new initiative is curated for medical clinic owners and operators to reduce the burdensome overhead associated with day to day operations. These offering will transform the primary care landscape from a fixed labor cost to a variable cost model that is customized for the individual needs of clinics. This increased efficiency and lower operating cost will increase the overall profitability of primary care clinics.
“From my own clinical experience, I see the benefit of offering these services to other privately-owned clinics,” said Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier Health. “We have successfully integrated shared resources across our four HealthVue Medical clinics. With rising labour costs, many clinics simply cannot afford dedicated staffing. With our recent acquisition of Cloud Practice, we have the opportunity to provide virtual and remote services to the 287 clinics currently using Juno EMR.”
The company already has a list of clinics immediately interested in virtual nursing services in BC and plans to provide further expansion updates in Q2 2019.

Will Stock Prices Head Higher On Thursday?
US stocks were mixed on Thursday. As most investors head into a long holiday weekend, there are several things helping to drive stock prices higher on Thursday.
IPOs Boost Market Sentiment
On April 18 the stock market saw two big IPOs. Both Zoom Video (ZM) and Pinterest (PINS) made their public debuts. For the most part, investors remained skiddish about the latest series of IPOs. What was the reason? A few weeks ago the market witnessed the much anticipated Lyft (LYFT) IPO that has ended is disaster.
The day that Lyft went public, share prices briefly hit highs of $88.60 before closing the day in the red. This trend hasn’t stopped since then. Current stock prices show the company’s shares trading around $55. This abysmal figure is a far cry from even its IPO price of $72.
Needless to say, both Pinterest and Zoom have remained relatively flat. Zoom shares traded in a range of $$60.32 to $66. Pinterest saw a trading channel of $23.05 to $24.99.
Micro-Cap Stocks Rally Back
During the early morning session, the Russell Microcap Index saw a sharp drop to lows of $578.33. But since then, the index has continued to rally higher, nearly surpassing its opening price as of 12:30 PM. What is a microcap stock? These stocks represent companies with a market capitalization of $50 million to $300 million. Traditionally, investors will see plenty of penny stocks on the list.
The higher volatility attracts investors to these equities. This morning, the stock price for a few microcap companies ended up skyrocketing on heavy volume. Among the list of penny stocks, Amyris Inc. (AMRS), Mustang Bio (MBIO), Precipio Inc. (PRPO) and Uxin Limited (UXIN) hit scanners for volume and price movement.
With the short week, it’s likely that the markets could slow down during the afternoon session. Looking ahead to next week, investors will be watching for several key figures notwithstanding the growing list of companies reporting earnings.
Liberty Defense MOU Strategy includes Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership
Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 15, 2019) – Liberty Defense Holdings, Ltd. (TSXV: SCAN) (“Liberty“) provides a corporate update on its Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) Strategy which includes a signed MOU with Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership to beta test HEXWAVE.
Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense, commented, “Liberty’s MOU Strategy and potential partners, which includes Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership, will be a key element to the Company’s success not only in distinguishing ourselves from other the competition but also providing the Company with valuable feedback in testing HEXWAVE in live indoor and outdoor environments. In the coming months, we expect to be able to announce a number of key partnerships through our MOU program that will not only help validate the opportunities for this type of technology but also show the depth and reach of the Company and its Advisors.”
The proposed testing with Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership will occur at a site to be determined within or near Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. Rogers Arena is one of the premier sports and entertainment facilities in North America and has hosted over 25 million fans with a proud legacy of success. Events include NHL hockey games and most of the largest concerts and shows in the city. It was also the site where the Canadian women’s and men’s hockey teams won gold medals during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
“We are committed to our customer safety and looking for ways to improve their experiences while visiting Rogers Arena,” said Jim Day, Rogers Arena’s Director of Event Operations and Security. “This includes exploring how using cutting edge technologies can help keep our fans and visitors safe. We look forward to evaluating the capabilities of the HEXWAVE product.”
“Stadiums welcome thousands of visitors daily – including children and families. These are public spaces that face a security challenge with high volumes of foot traffic and multiple entry points,” said Riker. “By providing a security solution that is modular, scalable and capable of providing layered detection of potential threats, we believe that we can make these spaces safer for customers and employees.”
The Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership MOU was signed in November, 2018.
