Last week we brought you a full report on a company and healthcare trend that has captivated investors this year. The market for telehealth technology has taken the world by storm. In fact, Deloitte reports(1) that “telehealth can enable healthcare systems to extend high-quality care to patients throughout their journey across the care spectrum.”
Healthcare is one of the highest growth industries in the world, so it’s no wonder why companies are aiming at exploiting the pent-up demand for easier access to allow patients the ability to receive care via the use of new technologies such as telehealthcare.
Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) Takes Aim At New Highs
On October 31 we published the article, “Ever Hear Of Connecting The Dots? Consider This Your Heads Up.” Though it was Halloween, there were no tricks to this treat. We wanted to make sure everyone understood the opportunities that this market is presenting right now and emphasize the fact that you don’t need to be Appl Inc. or Amazon to deliver real gains to investors.
Enter Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI). This company is brand new to the North American public markets. It just became eligible for the US Depository Trust late last month. Throughout the last few months, Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) has been building the framework for what could be a great push for market share in the ever-growing telehealth technology space. Also, the company is focusing on the Canadian markets to take full advantage of the general lack of access that the “free” healthcare system offers (or doesn’t offer) to the country.
Now, why do we say this? Statistics from Premier Health’s subsidiary, HealthVue, show that roughly 15% of Canadians aged 12 and older don’t have a primary care physician. On top of this, nearly two-thirds of seniors are also unable to get a same-or next-day appointment. This contributes to about 7 in 10 Canadians avoiding seeing a doctor when they are sick.
Here’s where Premier Health & HealthVue can make substantial headway within the marketplace. HealthVue has an ecosystem of over 100,000 active patients, and according to the company, they also have plans to “rapidly increase that number both domestically and internationally.” Unlike other telehealth companies, HealthVue also has four clinics in British Columbia with plans to expand to the rest of Canada via its telemedicine model.
The benefit for Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) is that it can tap into the existing payment structure that Canada offers. Unlike the US, the telemedicine visits are already covered by the provincial health insurance plans in several provinces, so there is no cost to the patient to access this service. HealthVue expects to make the first version of the app available to their patients in Q4-18.
Recent Market Reaction: Strong Uptrend
After sending out our report, we’ve been flooded with attention on both the site and our email subscribers. The interest that has built this week alone indicates to us that the sector and company are gaining attention in the market. Just look at the last few days and we think that you’ll see things have started to “wake up” for this company in the market:
Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) is brand new but the fact that volume and price have climbed the way they have over the last few days suggests to us that this momentum could be just the beginning. Remember, our goal is to bring new ideas to you, and if you made a point to read over this article, then you already know that some of the biggest breakout companies of the year started in a similar way: early momentum building and price beginning to steadily climb.
In our opinion, Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) is far from “just another healthcare company.” What they’ve begun to achieve could set the stage for something even more significant for the company, its technology, and the industry as we know it.
The Trail Ahead Could Breed More Joint Venture Opportunities
On October 11, 2018, Premier Health Group Inc., (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) announced their selection of Reliq Health Technologies Inc. as its exclusive technology partner. Reliq is “a healthcare technology company that specializes in developing innovative software as a service solution for the $30 billion community carer market.”
Reliq’s mission, like their new partner Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI), is to create technological solutions to “allow patients to receive high-quality care in the home or other community-based settings, improving health outcomes, enhancing the quality of life for patients and families and reducing the cost of care delivery.”
According to this selection, Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI), will look to Reliq to further HealthVue’s telemedicine system by incorporating their technology platform to power the HealthVue patient app. The HealthVue app, powered by Reliq, “will allow patients to book appointments, see their GP or specials, review their chart, chat with clinic staff and pharmacists, refill prescriptions and share health data collected in the home with their HealthVue care team,” said Dr. Essam Hamza, MD, CEO of HealthVue.
But this could be just the start, and the main reason is that big pharmacies and healthcare systems are beginning to see the light. The resulting success could open big doors for the global market and for companies like Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) to get a piece of the pie. Just look at some of the leading pharmacies aiming telemedicine:
- Rite Aid (RAD), the third largest pharmacy in America, has begun searching for a useful telehealth technology for its customers both in store and virtually.
- Walgreens (WBA) is connecting with more than a dozen healthcare providers, working to launch a new virtual marketplace used to join its online customers with store- and community-based services.
- CVS has even begun to explore opportunities in telehealth with early ventures. The CVS Pharmacy app leverages back-end technology of telemedicine to offer the service to its subscribers.
The “Big Three” in the pharmacy industry are looking for the advantage and telemedicine could give them just that. The move follows the trends of a new consumer and the tendency to shift care outside of hospitals and clinics to where patients already are.
Market Opportunity Indicates Rapid Growth
Telemedicine is also becoming a more significant part of health care treatment in rural areas, and more hospitals are embracing video consultations. A May 2017 study(2) found that from 2004 to 2014, use of telemedicine for mental health visits among rural Americans on Medicare increased an average of 45% per year.
Other reports(3) from firms like Polaris Market Research & Consulting found that the global telehealth market was valued at $3.1 Billion in 2017 and is anticipated to reach $16.7 Billion by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 23.5%. After observing this kind of rapid expansion within a short period, it stands to reason that not only is healthcare in for a change but also calls for more attention to be placed on companies getting involved early on.
The opportunity to expand beyond the US and into Canada could offer companies within this industry an even greater opportunity, as healthcare systems are unique in each country. With telemedicine making patient care that much more accessible and the evolution to a mobile society, this technology could become a significant catalyst for the healthcare industry. This is where Premier Health (OTC: PHGRF) (CSE: PHGI) could have the upper hand and a big reason why the markets have just begun to pay closer attention to companies within the telemedicine space.

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.

At a time where 100 Americans are killed with guns every single day and hundreds more are shot and injured, according to EveryTown Research, this is the time to invest in urban security. After all, what is more, valuable than a life?
What Sets Liberty Defense
(SCAN.V)’s HEXWAVE Apart From The Competition?
HEXWAVE is the first practical application of real-time, next-gen 3D imaging. It uses low power radar energy which helps generate real-time 3D images to detect threat options such as guns, knives, explosives, and other threats through clothing and baggage. This product creates high fidelity, real-time concealed threat images which are assessed using deep learning and AI. Thus alerting security regarding the decision response hierarchy.

· Can be used stand-alone or combined with other security measures
HEXWAVE provides enhanced security options without disrupting the flow of daily life by scanning quickly and unobtrusively. Ideal for use in high traffic areas and a huge leap from the traditional metal detector.
The demand is present andLiberty Defense (SCAN.V) has already inked two Memorandums of Understanding for beta testing of
Liberty Defense (SCAN.V)’s All-Star Management
Advancement from the operational to strategic level is a crucial undertaking that all companies must undergo in pursuit of success. The executive leadership team at Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) has the necessary insight to achieve profitable growth and maintain operational systems.
Liberty Defense (SCAN.V)’s President Of US Operations and Chief Operating Officer, Aman Bhardwaj, comes with over 20 years of strategic experience and involvement with large multinational startups, such as Panasonic and Flextronics. Bhardwaj’s vast involvement and leading global large-scale companies serve as an invaluable asset to the company.
Bill Riker, the company’s chief executive officer, joined Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) back in August 2018. Since then, Riker has played a key role in establishing the company as an industry leader in the urban security market. Prior to joining Liberty Defense (SCAN.V)’s leadership team, Riker racked up extensive experience in several companies focused on threat detection solutions, and identification of chemical, radiological, nuclear and explosive threats for the global security market and held an executive position in the US Department of Defense.
Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) chief technology officer, Bart Smudde, brings over 30 years of experience to the table in designing, testing and manufacturing electronics products in several markets including military and medical. Smudde has managed engineering teams for companies including Graco, Landis+Gyr, SignalONE Safety, and Panasonic.
Liberty Defense (SCAN.V)’s Opportunities Ahead For Detection
Specifically, the Weapons Detection Systems Market is forecast to grow from USD $5.3 billion in 2020 to $7.5 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate of 8.2%. With the political spotlight focused now more than ever on gun control and public safety, emerging companies in this sector are poised for increased opportunities and growth.
Patriot Tech (PAT.V) (PTOTF), for instance, has generated some buzz lately. This emerging company has been prequalified for up to CA$1 million from the federal government’s Build in Canada Innovation Program for testing by the Department of National Defense to test its covert weapon detection system. The system uses cognitive microwave radar to detect hidden guns, knives, and other threats. With the potential for a government to back such technology, if all goes well, this may catalyze opportunity for advancements throughout the sector and Liberty Defense (SCAN.V).
With the potential technology to revolutionize the standards of security, Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) is seeking to become a market leader and take a seat at the table with companies like major government contractor L3 Technologies (LLL) who provides detection and security systems for U.S. Department of Defense, Homeland Security and foreign governments or leading tech innovator Harris Corp. (HRS) which supports government and commercial customers in over 100 countries. Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) may provide investors with the opportunity to take part in this rapidly growing market early on.
“Currently, there is a significant gap that must be addressed in urban security threat defense. HEXWAVE provides a wider perimeter for early detection beyond just the point solution typically positioned at an entrance of a facility. This essential layer will enable security measures to be proactively deployed to detect a threat before it transitions to an attack condition. Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) can fill this gap,” said Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense (SCAN.V).
A Strategy That Builds Partnerships
In Mid-April, Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) expanded on its strategic initiatives. This includes testing and implementing the company’s HEXWAVE product at major epicenters of security risks. Furthermore, the proposed testing of its product with its Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership will occur at a site to be determined within or near Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.
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.”Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense (SCAN.V)
To give some perspective on the scope of this opportunity, Rogers Arena is one of the premier sports and entertainment facilities in North America. It 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.
Can You Detect A Winner?
We live in a world where threats to our safety, both large and small, have impacted the way we as a society live. Increased security measures are being taken in several aspects of daily life such as entering a school or even a baseball game, often causing large delays. Worse off, not all current security measures are stopping these threats before they happen.
Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) is working on a solution to combat these issues head on through the implementation of its HEXWAVE product. As we move towards the future, it could be potentially lucrative for investors to pay attention to this sector and Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) early on, and you heard it here first!
