Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) Announces Binding LOI to Acquire Cloud Practice Inc., a National Medical Software Application Company


Managing health and wellbeing is a full-time responsibility. With yearly physicals, vaccinations, and those few days out of the year where you don’t feel 100%, a reliable source of primary care is vital to both physical and mental health.

Finding primary care can be challenging, especially in countries like Canada, where shortages in available primary care physicians and nurses make it more difficult to find available appointments. The doctors that end up having availability get blitzed with a barrage of patients and burnout.

More likely than not, healthcare companies won’t be able to solve every issue facing their industry, but that doesn’t mean companies aren’t finding innovative ways to help their patients access primary care.

Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) Is Targeting an Opportunity with a Massive Demand In The Healthcare Market

Enter HealthVue, a subsidy of Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI), which is a company focused on redesigning how medical care is received. Premier’s objective is to develop new technologies that deliver the best quality healthcare possible, through the seamless combination of their network of primary care clinics with telemedicine and artificial intelligence. With an elite team of industry leaders, knowledgeable physicians, and specialists at the top of their fields, HealthVue is on the precipice of becoming the authority on accessible primary care.

The HealthVue team, backed by Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI), empathizes with the needs of residents of Canada who are struggling to access affordable, qualitative primary care and are invested in designing state-of-the-art medical technology to offer unparalleled assistance. Unlike other healthcare companies, HealthVue is pushing the limit of how we utilize tech to improve our physical health.

Telemedical Could Be the Key To Healthy Margins For (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) & Here’s Why

Telemedicine is rapidly becoming an integral component of the future of healthcare. The market for telemedicine is growing quickly and is expected to continue, as the pressure to upgrade the efficiency and quality of care, while being cost-effective, increases.

This area of healthcare is on fire right now, and the heat is only intensifying. According to Reuters, the deployment of telemedicine has significantly altered the healthcare paradigm, due to the many technological advancements in the field of medical devices and services. With the geriatric population increasing every day, paired with “rising prevalence of chronic diseases, dearth of healthcare professionals worldwide,” these are just some factors expected to catalyze the growth of the telemedicine market.

Telemedicine technology is considered, by industry experts and investors alike, as the most adaptable technology currently being utilized to deliver “health education, health information, and health care at a distance,” according to Market Watch. Companies like Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) are well aware of this exciting trend and are prepared to meet market demands with sophisticated technologies to increase remote access to primary care and reduce hospitalization rates for patients.

The existence of this technology, coupled with investors who understand the profitable future of the industry, will ensure steady market growth and create huge opportunities for hate players in the market.

HealthVue Utilizes High-Tech Solutions To Improve Health

Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) and HealthVue have worked tirelessly to integrate telemedicine technology into the experience for their community of over 100,000 active patients. If someone is unable to physically make it to a primary care physician, HealthVue is there to provide support. Easily accessed by their website or smart-phone application, HealthVue is focused on using telemedicine technology to facilitate the delivery of primary care.

Because of Premier Health’s (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) belief in investing in the highest quality healthcare technology, HealthVue patients can choose to see doctors from anywhere in the world, whether at home or on vacation. Patients simply connect with an available physician through HealthVue’s telemedicine app, and within seconds, they receive treatment.

During these telemedicine calls, providers can diagnose a patient, guide them in how to feel better, and even prescribe medication. Similar to an in-person visit, the physician gathers your medical history to ensure their recommendations for treatment are unique to every patient’s health background. Competitors like the “Dr. On Demand” application offer similar services for their patients, but no company can match the unrivaled user experience that HealthVue creates for it’s 100,000 plus member network.

Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) Invests In Wellbeing

Premier Health is taking a strategic approach to the market, and ensuring that it can meet the demands of consumers, by collaborating with Reliq.

Show Me The Digital Currency

It has been said if you listen closely, you can hear money talking louder than any other person in the room. For centuries, those with greater access to capital have had the privilege of sitting in the driver’s seat, while others living with less means have kowtowed to the demands of the affluent. In the year 740 B.C., long before you or I walked the Earth in search of avocado toast and AirPods, the Tang Dynasty in China introduced the first pieces of paper currency.

After they invited block printing (think stamps), the government started to print money because metal coins were far too heavy to carry compared to the featherweight nature of paper. Prior to the Tang Dynasty getting that paper, dozens of ancient civilizations used bartering systems to trade for what they needed. Ultimately, someone decided that coins and paper money held greater intrinsic value than shiny rocks or three seashells. 

In the thousands of years following the introduction of paper currency, we’ve seen a tidal shift in not only what money looks like, but how it is spent. According to an April 2017 survey, 40% of internet users in developed countries stated that they purchase items online at least “several times per month.” As we’ve seen with the rise of e-commerce sites like Amazon.com and other online shopping platforms, consumers are losing interest in buying products at brick-and-mortar locations.

Ironically enough, 70% of Americans still say they use paper money on a weekly basis, but several financial analysts believe the global economy is headed in a cashless direction. 

According to reports, Sweden, a nation lauded for being both technologically advanced and full of delicious meatballs, is expected to go completely cashless by March 2023, at which point cash will not be accepted any longer as a form of payment. Back in 2012, the six largest banks in Sweden collaborated to develop a mobile payment platform called Swish, which is now used by millions of Swedes every day. 

TechCrunch recently published a piece discussing how the Chinese government plans to implement the “Village Revitalization Strategic Plan,” which is designed to improve the efficiency and level of financial services for rural communities across the nation.

The goal, according to the set of guidelines jointly published by China’s central bank, the Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, the Securities Regulatory Commission, the Ministry of Finance, and the Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Affairs, is to “make mobile payments ubiquitous in rural China by the end of 2020. 

If we examine America’s potential to shift towards a cashless society, which could catalyze a global movement, the odds of this taking place are fairly likely. According to a 2017 survey conducted by CNBC, 50% of respondents said they carry cash with them less than half of the time when they are out, and if they do, 76% said they keep less than $50 on hand.

This trend has driven consumers to shift towards the use of debit cards. However, younger generations under the age of 18 cannot have their own checking account, so this has left a significant portion of the American population at an economic disadvantage. 

Luckily, a new mobile banking startup called Step wants to assist the next generation in understanding the value of a cashless dollar. The Company, founded by CJ MacDonald and Alexey Kalinichenko, former execs from the mobile gift card platform Gyft, started Step to help the nearly 75 million children and young adults under the age of 21 in the U.S., who are burdened by having to use cash for all their purchases. 

“Step” is banking on (apologies for the pun) the youthful spirit of todays’ teenagers who are hot to buy items on Amazon.com or purchase in-app downloads on their smartphones but are too young to have a debit/credit card. Step CEO Macdonald says the market for the startup isn’t based on the “unbanked,” it’s the “pre-banked.” 

“We’re building an all-in-one banking solution that primarily focuses on teens and parents. We want it to be a teen’s first bank account. We want to be a teen’s first spending card. And we want to teach financially literacy and responsibility firsthand.”

CJ MacDonald, Chief Executive Officer, Step

Back To The Food-ture

Humanity is moving pretty fast, and if we don’t stop and look around once in while, we could miss it. Seemingly every day, tech startups receive seed funding to develop some crazy piece of technology meant to dramatically improve how we lives our lives, but the question is: do these companies understand what we really want or even need? First we need to understand the impetus behind many of these ideas. 

As a society with toddler-like attention spans, forever in search of the “next big thing,” it’s perfectly understandable that companies are sprouting left and right to capitalize on our fidgety nature. Having said that, I posit that it is time we take back our independence from technology that otherwise prohibits us from performing tasks we are perfectly capable of handling. 

Special Delivery! On-Demand Tech Companies Hit Billion-Dollar Valuations; Here’s How Investors Can Capitalize In The Market

The close of 2018 allowed investors across all industries to catch their breath after a  year of volatile upswings and economic downturns changing hands constantly. In that time, the tech stock market flourished with companies offering products and services to assist us in our time of panic. Considering that we made it out of 2018 largely unscathed, some of these companies, and their subsequent product offerings, are no longer necessary. 

One such sub sect of the tech industry that has proven its worth time and time again is that which includes companies developing delivery technology. While I fully agree that we’ve grown accustomed to a way of life that has slowly nurtured our codependence and inability to survive without it, there are some instances where tech has remedied serious systemic issues. Companies in delivery tech, specifically those working in on-demand food delivery are working to foster a healthy relationship between woman and machine, while still managing to make our lives easier. 

Food insecurity is an issue which affects millions of people around the world, and yet, as a global community, we have remained largely complacent in providing assistance. According to the USDA, a food desert is an area which is without access to fresh produce and other healthy foods. These areas are typically found in impoverished countries, and as a result, persons living in these places are at greater risk of malnutrtional diseases. 

In the United States, food deserts exist across the country. The horrific events of Hurricane Katrina left New Orleans and its people in a state of emergency. Though it occurred nearly fifteen years ago, a significant percentage of New Orleans residents still say they have to choose between buying food and paying bills, according to several analysts. 

Where companies in many industries have demonstrated apathy in terms of developing innovative solutions to assist people struggling to survive, there are some in the delivery tech industry determined to make a difference. 

Enter ParcelPal Technology Inc (PKG) (PT0.F) (PTNYF), a delivery tech company dead set on innovating, fabricating, distributing goods to consumers to improve their quality of life. At a time where access to food and supplies is difficult for millions of individuals, ParcelPal is determined to do what it takes to deliver to consumers what they need to get by. The Company recognized the systemic inequities that exist in society and sought to challenge tech industry norms and focus on consumers. 

The Company has managed to develop and maintain an easy-to-use marketplace platform where customers can shop for the products they love and use every day and, rather than pick these items up from locations that could be difficult to travel to, ParcelPal couriers deliver orders to customers in an hour or less. ParcelPal Technology Inc (PKG) (PT0.F) (PTNYF) was founded to make life easier for people, and has risen to the top of the industry because they’ve achieved exactly what they set out to accomplish. 

In recent news, ParcelPal Technology Inc (PKG) (PT0.F) (PTNYF)announced at the tail-end of January that the Company has formed partnership with MADD Canada to aid in the continuous fight to prevent impaired driving. As part of the ParcelPal’s national rollout campaign, advertising for ParcelPal’s service will be seen across the country in various educational forms. Together, MADD Canada and ParcelPal will launch a national awareness campaign focused on educating Canadians on the dangers of impaired driving and the options they have for getting items they want or need without leaving the party. 

An Affiliate of JSG Communications, MIDAM VENTURES LLC has been compensated $75,000 per month for 3 months by ParcelPal Technology, Inc. for a period beginning September 1, 2018 and ending February 1, 2019 to publicly disseminate information about (PTNYF/PKG). We may buy or sell additional shares of (PTNYF/PKG) in the open market at any time, including before, during or after the Website and Information, provide public dissemination of favorable Information. We own zero shares.

Bitcoin Could Be Rescued By Milennials​

Daniel Chase

Everyone has a friend or loosely connected acquaintance they they wish would just give it a rest. I’m talking about those people that are so damned impassioned about a particular topic that they not only post regularly about it on social media but at every party, function, or event, it’s really all they can talk about. For one friend of mine in particular, he always talks about cryptocurrencies with statements akin to Will Hunting when he hit his stride in that Southie bar.

We try to tell him that Bitcoin has been struggling to get out of bed after a near two-year dry spell after enjoying an earth-shattering bull run in 2017. Sure, in the past bitcoin’s price shot up from mere pennies to nearly $20,000 in less than a year, but the once-famous crypto has failed time and time again to break out of its bear market tendencies. 

Nearly a decade has passed since Nakamoto released the fabled white paper describing the primordial framework of a peer-to-peer currency network. At the time, an anonymous cryptographer, with the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto, was furious with the fact that consumers were slowly being falling prey to the inefficacies of banks and other financial institutions. 

Nakamoto wrote that “commerce on the internet [had] come to rely almost exclusively on financial institutions as trusted third parties to process electronic payments,” and this nurtured dependence would ultimately lead to a fiscal downturn. With a P2P currency network that kept records of every transaction, banks were no longer needed and the era of decentralized currency was on the rise. 

For a time, everyone wanted a piece of the cryptocurrency market, but that has all been reduced to whispers and murmurs. However, according to a recent survey, interest in bitcoin and cryptocurrencies may be on the rise once more, namely because millennials and younger generations don’t trust those dastardly traditional banking institutions. According to Forbes, 43% of millennial online traders “have more trust in crypto exchanges than the U.S. stock market, compared to 77% of Gen X respondents who have more trust in stock exchanges.” 

It would seem that millennials could actually get credit for contributing something of value to society other than complaining about presidents and student loans. 

“We’re seeing the beginning of a generational shift in trust from traditional stock exchanges to crypto exchanges. Younger investors’ experience with he stock market has seen a great deal of loss of trust, with the fall of Lehman Brothers because of irresponsible practices followed by the worst recession since the Great Depression…Trust further eroded when Americans saw how..banks get free money through quantitative easing while their cost living continues to rise…”

Guy Hirsch, U.S. managing director, eToro

The growing millennial mistrust of banking institutions could rescue bitcoin from its current crypto winter. It is interesting that we place such a large amount of trust in banks, storing thousands of dollars in their systems, and yet we have absolutely no idea what happens to our money when its “protected” in our accounts. The trust-based model of depending on banks to transact and safely store money is outdated and, if there’s anything that can be said about younger generations, it’s the idea that older technologies and systems can and should be replaced as soon as possible. 

According to CoinMarketCap, there are presently over 2,000 cryptocurrencies on the market but analysts say that a majority of these coins are virtually worthless. The initial coin offering explosion of 2017 catalyzed an industry replete with hot shot entrepreneurs ready to throw money at the first crypto they could get their hands on, without any idea as to if these coins functioned. 

“Almost every ICO was just an attempt to raise money but there was no use for the underlying token…The vast majority of what’s our there will be eliminated…”

Barry Silbert, CEO of Digital Currency Group 

Only time will tell as to whether the age of cryptocurrencies will rise once more, but if we are depending on millennial to come to the rescue, historically their collective followthrough is less than noteworthy.
