The most recent global report from the United Nations states that by 2030 the global population will reach 8.6 billion . This predicted growth in global population presents many potential problems. Some of these problems are obvious; shelter, food etc…
What about Healthcare? Did you know that currently for every 1,000 healthcare patients there are only 3 doctors available to provide treatment ?
This massive shortcoming in patient care has created a serious problem for patients and healthcare providers! It has also opened the doors wide open for companies – and investors – to immediately capitalize. Companies in the healthcare sector are making key investments in telemedicine and machine learning to take the quality of care to the next stage.
THE PROBLEM: The Health Care System is Dated & Broken!
- Rising Costs: Governments and payors facing increasing costs that are simply unsustainable.
- Inefficient Use of Resources: 39% of Canadians who visited an ER indicated that they could have avoided the visit if they had better access to primary care.
- Doctor Supply: A shortage of primary care doctors and nurses, especially in remote and rural communities, leads to clinician burn out and patients frustrated by long wait times. Newly licensed doctors are avoiding primary care because of these dynamics, which increases the pressure on an already stressed system.
- Accessibility: Approximately 15% of Canadians aged 12 and older don’t have a primary care physician. Nearly two-thirds (59%) of seniors are unable to get a same-or next-day appointment. Almost 7 in 10 Canadians avoid seeing a doctor when they are sick.
THE PREMIER HEALTH SOLUTION:
- On Your Time: Patients can book appointments & be seen by general practitioners & specialists 24/7.
- Ease of Access: Patients, Doctors, Nurses & Pharmacists can review your medical chart in real-time, anytime.
- No Borders: Doctors can be anywhere in the world and still see their patients. Patients can visit any clinic and have their medical charts follow them.
- At Your Convenience: Prescriptions electronically submitted to the pharmacy of their choice or delivered free to them by a preferred pharmacy partner.

While the healthcare juggernauts work to simply expand their reach with archaic technology, Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) has identified an open opportunity to capitalize on.
It Starts With Industry-Leading Technology
Through the use of HealthVue, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI), has built a medical ecosystem with the ability to directly connect to pharmacists, nurses, and physicians in real time.

In other cases, smaller clinics don’t have the resources for adequate patient follow-up. Implementing Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI)’s systematic process could significantly improve the quality of care and improve patient health outcomes.
Acquisitions & Strategic Ventures Target Substantial Growth Opportunities For Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI)

On January 29, Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) closed on one of its biggest acquisitions to date and brought on CLoud Practice Inc. For someone new to this story, what does this actually mean?
This acquisition brings on several key assets:

- MyHealthAccess, an Online Patient Portal.
More importantly, Juno’s EMR, in particular, gives Premier Health Group Inc.

The Cannabis Connection: No Longer a Low Tide For Cannabis & Premier Is Setting Its Sights
We are seeing a tidal shift in public opinion regarding the cannabis sector and the potential benefits of incorporating medicinal cannabis and CBD into healthcare. Leaping ahead, Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) announced in late 2018 plans for launching a Cannabis Clinic.
Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier Health, shared that “the role of Cannabis in treating medical conditions is continuously expanding. Our doctors have had success in treating patients with various ailments from chronic pain to cancer-related symptoms. There is a gap between the patient’s need for medical marijuana, and the family doctor’s comfort and knowledge to prescribe it.”
The Canadian medical cannabis market is estimated to be worth approximately $2.35 billion by 2025  and Premier is already diversifying its revenue potential.
The Evolution Continues With New, Cutting Edge Technology
Let’s paint this picture for you: Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) has access to MILLIONS of patients and is now at the forefront of a significant pivot for healthcare and cannabis.

Being that there are currently 4,600 physicians & healthcare practitioners who use Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI)’s Juno EMR platform, this latest agreement could mean big opportunities for Premier. Why is all of this important?
CB2 Insights just integrated its technology with Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI). And why this deal could be big for Premier is based on CB2 and its unique technology platform that could drastically change the medical cannabis industry. Let’s explain:
Access to knowledgeable practitioners is a huge hurdle for the medical cannabis industry.
The Premier Solution & A First To Market Opportunity?
Not only does the latest deal open up a major opportunity for a company like CB2, it effectively brings Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) to the forefront to offer an all-inclusive platform for nearly 5,000 doctors & healthcare practitioners to prescribe medical cannabis to millions of patients across North America.
The unique feature of the CB2 Clinical Decision Support (CDS) tool is that the technology dramatically cuts the learning curve for medical providers. Those who may not be completely educated on different variants of cannabis can efficiently determine a proper strain/product for patients based on thousands of datapoint collected by CB2’s platform.
“We continue to receive multiple requests from physicians who ask about how best to incorporate medical cannabis into their clinics. This agreement with CB2 will provide us a robust, validated tool to give our physicians and healthcare practitioners a safe and secure way to qualify, educate and where appropriate, prescribe medical cannabis to their patients in a compliant manner.”

Traditional Health Care Is Transforming
In recent months, healthcare companies have explored integrating augmented reality technology into care offerings. According to recent reports, the healthcare-based AR market is projected to be worth over $5 billion by 2025 .
Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) is investing in augmented reality technology to be at the forefront of this new opportunity. Premier dominated headlines when the Company’s executive leadership team announced plans to collaborate with NexTech AR Solutions to explore bringing AR technology to its patient-centric healthcare app.
Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) will work with NexTech to develop educational tools for healthcare professionals and patients through the use of augmented reality technology. The potential applications of AR in training medical professionals are endless because the tech creates an incredibly engaging educational experience.
Imagine medical professionals being able to take their anatomical education one step further by interacting with a virtual representation of the human heart, and demonstrate to their patients exactly what is going on internally.
“At Premier Health, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of changes in healthcare, so we are thrilled to be a part of the future of healthcare by enabling state of the art technological advancements to our patient-centric telemedicine app. AR has the potential to revolutionize both the access to data and the delivery of healthcare. The technology will help doctors and patients alike — doctors will have access to the latest and most relevant information about their patients while patients can use AR for self-education and improving the quality of treatment they receive.”
Furthermore, the company’s research pilot study with Bio Conscious Technologies could deliver yet another layer of Artificial Intelligence to power Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI)’s market-leading clinical decision support software, Juno Electronic Medical Records.
Premier Health (PHGRF) (PHGI) to Pilot Bio Conscious Technologies AI Powered Remote Patient Monitoring Tool
The research pilot will use data from patients who are using the app and sign up for the study. The data used will include sugar levels, heart rate, blood pressure, age, sex and weight – much of which is collected from the integration of the patient’s health monitoring devices such as their smartwatch. The Diabits tool will then tailor a personalized blood sugar model which the patient can use to guide their nutrition and exercise plan.
Just as Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) did with its Cloud Practice acquisition, it has continued to execute on with other irons in the fire. Furthermore, Premier isn’t just focusing on cloud-based tech but also on brick and mortar. Earlier in 2019, the company entered into a letter of intent to acquire 2 operating pharmacies doing about $6 million in revenue and were cash flow positive.
On April 2 Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) entered into a formal agreement to complete this acquisition! This isn’t just some random brick and mortar business; we’re talking a business doing about $6 million in revenue. Premier Health expects to complete the acquisition during the second quarter of 2019. Those looking at Premier Health Group right now are seeing it at the exact moment of several huge milestones and this is one of them.
What could be even better yet is that this deal could seamlessly integrate with EVERYTHING else that the company has in place…and the CEO agrees:
“We look forward to working together to improve fulfillment for our rapidly growing patient base. In light of our recent announcement of our medical cannabis decision tool for our JUNO EMR clients, our pharmacists will be able to help with patient education and support regarding medical cannabis. In addition, with one of the pharmacies occupying a space of over 6,000 square feet, we have the potential to open a new medical and/or cannabis clinic within the existing space.”
Is Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) set to become the next market leader? Take a look at Teladoc Health Inc. (TDOC), a company which currently services over 130 countries around the world. It reported Q4 and full-year 2018 results  that showed revenue increased by nearly 80% for the year! While this is impressive on its own, you may want to take a look at another important figure: total telemedicine visits grew by 80%.
The company made headlines after inking a deal with CVS Health to provide virtual healthcare offerings for patients with minor illnesses from their mobile device. While this is great news for Teladoc, this could be even greater news for Premier Health and here’s why: Companies at the forefront of the healthcare industry revolution are working to develop more innovative care offerings to lower costs and increase access to care. Artificial intelligence, big data analytics, and telemedicine are helping to lead the way.
It’s not hard to believe that two of the best performing sectors in the market have been technology and healthcare. Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) provides exposure to both of these sectors. Not only has it built a framework to expand its reach into the multi-million patient range but it has also strategically positioned itself for bigger opportunities in our opinion.
Being at the start of something is what many dreams of and Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) continues to expand its operations. The latest deal with CB2 Insights could set the standard for doctor/patient engagement & medical marijuana prescriptions.
The partnership with 360 Health brings the company to service a country that has over a billion people living there. And its continued expansion through acquisitions of companies adding new technologies, new patients, and access to more healthcare professionals could set the stage for something even greater for the company.

Analyzing 2 Big Ride-Hailing Stocks: Uber Or Lyft
This year has been the year of tech initial public offerings and two of the biggest ones so far this year have belonged to ride-hailing companies, Uber (UBER) and Lyft (LYFT). The IPOs were highly anticipated but both companies had been disappointed in the reception they got from the market. In fact, both went below their listing prices, but eventually, both stocks have proven to be gainers.
In this regard, it would be interesting to see how the two stocks match up and which of Uber or Lyft could be a better investment in the ride-hailing space.
Uber Technologies (UBER)
First and foremost, Uber (UBER) is a far bigger company when compared to Lyft and has a massive presence in some of the most lucrative markets in the world. Uber’s revenues grew by 14% in the first quarter this year and touched $3.1 billion.
Meanwhile, gross bookings during the quarter saw as much as $14.6 billion. The gross bookings rose by 34%. On top of that, analysts estimate that Uber users are going to spend a jaw-dropping $60 billion this year.
Lyft Inc. (LYFT)
On the other hand, Lyft (LYFT) presents an interesting dilemma for investors. While it is a far smaller operation, with smaller revenues, the company is growing at a fast rate than Uber. In the first quarter of 2019, the company’s revenues grew by as much as 95%.
However, the company projects the revenue growth for the whole year to be in the 52% to 53% range. Additionally, it does not have the added distraction of Uber Eats to contend with. As a conclusion, it needs to be pointed out that while Uber will continue to grow into a behemoth, Lyft can only hope to make smaller dents into its market share. Therefore, Uber may be a stronger company at this point.
Moreover, if Uber can manage to turn Uber Eats into a profitable food delivery business then the company could grow even further.
Raytheon and United Merger Triggers Increased Interest In the Defense Sector
The defense sector in the United States is booming as the government looks to buy more sophisticated technology and weapons, which is why mergers between mammoth defense companies have now become a common practice. Mergers help large companies to pool their resources behind a particular project and give them a better chance at bagging the billion-dollar contracts.
New Product and Potential Application
Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. is a security company looking to pioneer a groundbreaking product into the industry. As of now, they are only listed on the Canadian exchange as “SCAN.V”. Their product is known as HEXWAVE and it could transform public space security as we know it.
HEXWAVE is a 3D imaging technology product that can detect any kind of potential threat. It utilizes AI and deep learning in order to reduce human errors. HEXWAVE could be used in parks, schools, churches, concerts, sporting events, etc.
The application is practically endless. In addition, HEXWAVE has, as Sean Reyes states, “[struck] the balance between privacy interests on one side and security and safety.” This is important for the product to have given personal security is a huge factor for the general public.
Liberty plans on implementing its product for testing at various sites. This will allow the company to assess how the product reacts to different environments. As of now, Liberty Defense has signed two MOU’s for its use. One is in Utah as well as in Vancouver Arena.
In addition, Liberty has added Anthony Sleiman and Mit Shah to their Board of Advisors. Both men have experience with running business operations that involve watching over many people.
[News Release] Anthony T. Sleiman Joins Liberty Defense’s (SCAN) Board of Advisors
Mr. Sleiman has experience with real estate development and Mr. Shah has knowledge in the lodging and hotel industry. While they are not directly involved with security, both industries require it. These men understand where things can be improved.
So What Was The The Mega Defense Industry Merger?
In a new development, aerospace companies United Technologies (UTX) and Raytheon (RTN) announced the news of their imminent merger on Sunday. The deal is going to be completed entirely in stock. Mergers and acquisitions have become a bit of a trend in the defense industry and back in 2018, United Technologies acquired Rockwell Collins to raise their profile as an aerospace company. The deal was worth $23 billion.
The new entity will be known as Raytheon Technologies Corp and will create a defense behemoth that would boast of annual revenues to the tune of $74 billion. In the joint statement, the two firms touched upon the fact that the merger will allow it to further expand their research and development capabilities.
The new entity will have a far diverse range of products and services on offer and it will also make it a far more resilient company in the cutthroat world of defense contracting. Although a merger of such magnitude will likely come under scrutiny, experts believe that it would not be a problem since the two companies’ products do not really overlap.
The Chief Executive Officer of United Technologies, Gregory Hayes stated that the merger will allow the companies to combine their inherent strengths.
“Merging our two companies brings Raytheon’s deep expertise to vehicle integration, advanced guidance and control, and payload and combines it with UTC’s world-class propulsion technology.”Gregory Hayes, Chief Executive Officer of United Technologies
The deal’s expected to be completed at some point within the first six months of 2020. CEO of Raytheon Tom Kennedy also hosted his investor call. During it, he stated that once the merger’s completed, the company could have $8 billion a year to spend on research and development activities.
