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.

Biotechnology Could Cure It All
Nearly two-thousand years ago, give or take several minutes, Hippocrates taught that human existence was centered around the four elements — earth, water, fire, and air — which in the human body was represented by the four basic humors: blood, phlegm, black bile, yellow bile. Hippocrates explained that each humor was located in a specific organ of the human body and each related to its own personality type — sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric.
‘Therefore, if someone was sick, Hippocrates taught that this indicated an imbalance in one of the four
Suffice to say that the medical field has moved forward since 460 BC, and recently, these advancements have occurred in the biotechnology industry. Though biotech is a relatively new field, it possesses great potential for the future of medicine. One of the more recent breakthroughs in biotech stems from something called pharmacogenomics, or the study of how genetics affect a person’s response to drugs. This new field combines the science of developing drug treatments and research conducted on human genetics and their functions.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, most drugs currently available on the market are branded as “one size fits all,”meaning that this specific treatment was created to cure a certain ailment for anyone who takes it. However, as scientists in the pharmacogenomics field are discovering, not everyone reacts the same to certain drugs.
For example, if two individuals are having an allergic reaction and both ingest an anti-histamine, it’s possible that it will help one person feel better, while causing adverse side-effects to the other person. By studying a person’s genetic coding, medical experts are better able to predict how a medication will effect a particular person.
Ironically enough, as new technologies and inventive approaches to curing diseases come to light, medical researchers are discovering new diseases that seek to test all the progress we’ve made thus far. The practices of medicine have taken massive strides over the past few generations through the pioneering of biotechnology research and other incredible advancements, but regardless of these steps forward, it is up to companies in the healthcare industry to responsibly tend to the needs of their patients.
Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F) is a Canadian publicly traded company strategically poised to take advantage of lucrative business opportunities in the global healthcare industry. The Company is working to develop innovative healthcare approaches that combine human skill-based expertise with emerging technologies. What sets the Company apart from others in the field is that Premier is focused on developing their healthcare platform with a patient centric focus, looking to restore power back to the patients. For far too long, patients have been at the mercy of pharmaceutical companies who, by virtue of their capital, have maintained a chokehold on the price of drugs that patients need to stay healthy.
In addition to rising treatments costs, as the global population increases, there are less primary physicians available for consumers looking to be cured. Through the use of Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F) HealthVue app, patient can see their physician, access their charts & lab results, chat securely with clinical staff, reorder prescriptions and share remote health monitoring data with their doctor – all at their fingertips. The HealthVue app utilizes a virtual care platform designed to be easy to use and to improve a patient’s access to primary care.
In addition these advanced healthcare solutions, the Company shared, in their most recent corporate update, that they plan on utilizing artificial intelligence to assist in virtually triaging the needs of their patients. Using their Healthvue app, the patient will answer a series of questions which will be relayed to the physician, along with a differential on possible diagnoses. This information will be pre-populated to the physicians charting system and will provide key patient information prior to the scheduled virtual visit, saving them a considerable amount of time and allowing more time for patient interaction.

Mueller Investigation Is Almost Ready
A half-witted, know-nothing playwright by the name of William Shakespeare once wrote that “these violent delights have violent ends.” The line, taken from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, also featured in Westworld, depicts a scene in which Friar Laurence cautions Romeo into falling for Juliet because his love may catalyze his own violent end. I attribute the words of Shakespeare to the current predicament facing President Donald Trump and his administration. In the two or so years since Trump took office, special counsel Robert Mueller has worked without end to investigate whether the Trump administration colluded in any way, shape, or form, with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
After countless subpoenas and inducements of former Trump associates and administration members, sources indicate that Mueller’s long nights away from the family could soon be over. Towards that end of January, Roger Stone, a former associate of Donald Trump before he became president, was indicted on charges of seeking stolen emails from WikiLeaks that could damage Trump’s opponents during the 2016 presidential election season.
Per the official language of the indictment:
“…After the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened or announced their respective investigations into Russian interference in the 20126 U.S. presidential election…Stone took steps to obstruct these investigations….He made false statements to the HPSCI about his interactions regarding WikiLeaks, and falsely denied possessing records that contained evidence…”
-Robert Stone indictment
The indictment went on to explain that Stone attempted to persuade a witness to provide false testimony and withheld pertinent information from federal investigators. According to several sources, Stone was arrested by the FBI Friday morning while drinking his morning coffee at his home in Florida. Stone’s attorney immediately attempted to defuse any public sentiment stirring up connecting Stone to special counsel Mueller’s investigation, suggesting that Stone’s indictment “focuses on allegedly false statements…made to Congress,” and has nothing to do with Russian collusion.
According to CNN, Attorney General Bill Barr is limbering up in preparation to announce as early as next week the completion of Robert Mueller’s investigation, “with plans for Barr to submit to Congress soon after a summary” of the confidential report is prepared. Interestingly enough, though the details of the report concern both the American people and its presiding government, under special counsel regulations, Mueller must submit his “report” to the attorney general and the law doesn’t require this document to be shared with anyone.
Barr is under no formal obligation to publicly share the report, but I can already assume that members of the Democratic leadership will be banging on his office door until he throws them a bone.
The question on everyone’s mind is, what Mueller discovered in his lengthy investigation. Mueller was appointed to the case on May 17, 2017, and in years following this date, Mueller has had his hands full. Early last week, Mueller’s office filed its sentencing memorandum against Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, who will be sentenced next month in federal district court in the District of Columbia.
“For a decade, Manafort repeatedly violated the law. Considering only the crimes charged in this district, they make plain that Manafort chose to engage in a sophisticated scheme to hide millions of dollars from United States authorities. The sentence in this case must take into account the gravity of this conduct, and serve to both specifically deter Manafort and those who would commit a similar series of crimes.”
–sentencing memo from Robert Mueller
As for the findings of Mueller’s investigation, we will have to wait and see how Attorney General Barr chooses to go about sharing the report, if he ends up sharing the information at all. The information could disturb the Trump presidency and possibly give Democrats grounds for introducing articles of impeachment.
