Premier Health to Develop a “Virtual Medical Office Assistant” Using IBM Watson AI to Enable Employees to Focus on Higher-Value Work

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 15, 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 is working with IBM (IBM) to help build and integrate Watson AI into its patient centric telemedicine app.

According to studies done by the American Medical Informatics Association and Research Gate respectively, activities that have nothing to do with patient care consume over half (51%) of a nurse’s workload and nearly a fifth (16%) of physician activities. Artificial intelligence (AI) based technologies, such as voice-to-text transcription, can improve administrative workflows and eliminate time-consuming non-patient-care activities.

Watson is IBM’s suite of enterprise-ready AI services, applications, and tooling. Watson capabilities include natural language processing, text, signal and image processing, machine learning, and other AI capabilities to help free employees from repetitive tasks, allowing them to focus on more creative, higher-value work. The companies would like to develop a solution in which IBM can help build and integrate Watson Assistant as a virtual Medical Office Assistant (MOA) for Premier’s 4600 healthcare professionals servicing 3 million patients. It will initially focus on building conversational interfaces that will allow patients to interact with their medical office while enabling office staff to spend less time on the phone. A few examples include assistance with booking appointments, helping patients know what they should do to prepare for their next appointment and, eventually, help to triage patients to ensure those with medical emergencies will get the medical attention they require much faster.

“The future of health is being transformed with technologies like AI, and we are thrilled to be working with the experts at IBM,” said Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier Health. “As a doctor and previous clinic owner, I understand the frustrations patients have connecting with overstretched clinic staff. In addition, inefficient use of resources amount to increasing challenges in primary care. Our new initiative is curated for medical clinic owners and operators to reduce the burdensome overhead associated with day to day logistical operations while also improving patient care. The key for the future sustainability of healthcare is efficient and streamlined workflows and with the use of IBM’s cutting-edge AI technology, we have the power to completely disrupt and revolutionize the delivery of healthcare.”

As Premier Health continues on its patient-centric healthcare transformation, the company plans to further develop and expand its platform using analytics and AI capabilities from IBM Watson.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Chief Executive Officer

biotech stocks to watch

Biotech stocks is often regarded as safe due to the simple fact that it is a sector that has grown across the board for quite some time. However, in addition, the biotech sector has the potential to generate handsome gains if an investor ends up choosing the right stock.

Investors need to watch the market closely and be aware of the latest news from the sector in order to make the best choices. Here is a look at 3 biotech stocks that turned heads in the biotech sector this week.

PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB)

PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB) is in the prep phase of clinical trials and readying to complete its Investigational New Drug Application for the FDA.  Whether you’re new to biotech stocks or a seasoned vet, you should understand how important milestones like this are for a company.

David A. Judd, a cellular biologist and a member of PharmaCyte’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Board, was recently interviewed. Right now, PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB) is putting together the necessary material for its planned clinical trial for inoperable pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly forms of cancer today. Though there has been a targeted focus on Pancreatic cancer with PharmaCyte, its diabetes application may also have promise according to Judd.

“I think diabetes is where this type of technology really lends itself to the application. The key is to develop the right type of cell line to treat Type 1 and insulin-dependent Type 2 diabetes. There are several cell lines being explored by PharmaCyte simultaneously to do this. Selecting the right cell line to become our leading product candidate to treat diabetic patients in need of insulin is key to the success of PharmaCyte’s Diabetes Program.”

As one report puts it, “Clinical trials are essential for the development of new treatments, and PharmaCyte will enter this upcoming trial with two essential goals in mind—the future of its pancreatic cancer treatment and the future of its technology.”

VIVUS (VVUS)

The first biotech stock to consider here is that of VIVUS, Inc. (NASDAQ:VVUS), which has rallied on Wednesday on the back of a major announcement from the company. The stock rallied by 3% this morning in premarket trade after the results were announced from the Phase 1 clinical trial of its product Qsymia. The medicine in question is a capsule and is meant for people who suffer from binge eating disorder.

It should be noted that medicine is currently approved in the United States when used by people in order to reduce calories in their diets. It is a major development for VIVUS and it is no surprise that the stock rallied today.

Diffusion Pharmaceuticals (DFFN)

The other biotech stock that is worth including in the watch list is that of Diffusion Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:DFFN), which made solid gains yesterday on the back of the announcement of positive preliminary data from the Phase 3 clinical trial of Trans Sodium Crocetinate (TSC). The medicine is meant for treating inoperable glioblastoma and in the results, it has been revealed that patients recorded a median survival duration of as long as 14.3 months.

Historically, the standard survival duration is only 9.2 months. The results triggered a rally in the stock and the Diffusion stock soared by as much as 67.60%.

Defense Stocks in Focus This Week

While Many Watch Marijuana Stocks, Defense Gets Another Push

It is a well-known fact that the United States has the biggest defense budget in the world and the budget rises every year. That’s is why defense stocks are almost always in demand. These are companies that often win mega contracts from the American government and are immune from the volatile swings of the market.

Even if the economic situation is weak, the government will continue to spend on defense. Therefore these stocks are so attractive for investors. Here is a look at three penny stocks that are worth tracking at this point in time.

Liberty Defense Holdings (SCAN.V) (LDDFF)

There have been more mass shootings this year in the United States than there have been days in the year. Over 330 mass shootings [1], to be exact. This is becoming a huge issue that is costing precious lives and could see billions of dollars spent to fix this situation.

Liberty Defense (TSX: SCAN.V) (OTC: LDDFF) plans to address this issue using HEXWAVE, a next-generation high-tech security scanning system. It will use advanced, low-power radar, 3D-imaging, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to screen people at public gatherings such as sports games, unobtrusively. The company itself has been making paramount progress this quarter.

Most recently the company signed a collaboration agreement with Port Tampa Bay to beta test HEXWAVE. Between the years 2007 and 2017, total cruise ship passenger capacity grew by 25 percent in North America, with the following 10 years estimated to see a further 41 percent increase, according to a 2017 report. So this move could prove to be well-timed for a company like Liberty Defense (TSX: SCAN.V) (OTC: LDDFF).

Also, keep in mind that they’ve also got agreements in place with FC Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in Germany, Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Maryland Stadium Authority’s Camden Yards Complex, and in the state of Utah. There’s also projects with the Virginia Division of Capitol Police, in Sleiman shopping centers, in a Hindu temple, in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in Toronto Pearson International Airport, and with the University of Wisconsin Police Department. To say that they’ve laid the groundwork may be an understatement and results of these beta tests are highly anticipated by the company.

Air Industries Group (AIRI)

The first defense stock to consider is that of Air Industries Group Inc (NYSEAMERICAN:AIRI). The company is involved in aerospace and defense space. Air is best known for manufacturing, designing and selling products that are meant for flight safety. The Air stock has done particularly well this year and has soared by as much as 65% thus far. It is important to point out that Air counts some of the biggest names in the industry among its clients.

Products made by the company are currently used in Sikorsky’s UH-60 Black Hawk, Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Northrop Grumman’s E2 Hawkeye, Boeing’s 777, Airbus’ 380 commercial airliners, and the US Navy F-18 and USAF F-16 fighter aircraft. It also supplies equipment for different United States State Department Branches. It goes without saying that this is a stock that should be tracked closely.

Astrotech Corp (ASTC)

The other defense stock that should be in investors’ watch lists is that of Astrotech Corp (NASDAQ:ASTC). On November 14, it emerged that a product made by the company’s subsidiary 1st Detect has been chosen to conduct live screening at Miami International Airport by the U.S.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The product in question is TRACER 1000 and ever since the announcement was made, there has been an impressive rally in the Astrotech stock. That stock rallied by as much as 80% in one day.
