REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Biotricity, Inc. (OTCQB:BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company dedicated to delivering innovative, biometric remote monitoring solutions, has formulated a panel of industry experts to help advise and develop guidelines for post-diagnostic cardiac care. The panel is comprised of Global to Local’s research and innovation arm, faculty members from the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary, and members of Biotricity’s medical advisory board. The recommendations developed by the panel will serve as the basis for a suite of chronic care monitoring solutions and as an enhancement for Biotricity’s Bioflux product which is awaiting its second and final FDA 510(K).
A post-diagnostic remote cardiac management solution that merges seamlessly with physicians’ existing platforms and workflows for better health management and improved patient outcomes is essential today. There are several additional steps that are required before Biotricity can develop such a solution, but this is the first step on that journey. Biotricity plans on running a pilot, through its industry partners, to test and measure the guidelines developed for clinical effectiveness.
Patient engagement post-diagnosis is a critical area for Biotricity. To improve the efficacy of its solutions, the Company needs to broaden its understanding of patient treatment modalities on a long-term basis, beyond their initial encounter with Bioflux.
Biotricity founder and CEO Waqaas Al-Siddiq commented, “The Company is incredibly excited about kicking off this initiative. Understanding and reviewing post-diagnostic cardiac care is an important step for Biotricity as we prepare to commercialize our first medical solution, explore other chronic disease areas, and help drive awareness around the Company and our remote medical monitoring solutions.”
