FN Media Group Presents GlobalInvestmentDaily.com Market Commentary
The US health and medical insurance industry is a $1.1-trillion maze that is impossible to navigate. And in the bigger scenario of a massive $11-trillion-plus global healthcare industry, America is definitely not first. Americans are fed up, and a digital revolution that goes way beyond telemedicine is the only thing that will restore control. Mentioned in today’s commentary includes: Sage Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAGE), Cassava Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAVA), COMPASS Pathways plc (NASDAQ: CMPS), Neuronetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: STIM), Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACHC).
Fixing it is a highly disruptive, multi-trillion-dollar opportunity. Telemedicine, or ‘Telehealth’, will soar from $42 billion in 2018 to $400 billion in 2026. Healthcare IT alone will be worth $390 billion by 2024. But the biggest disruptor of them all may be medical apps. And the advantage just might go to a Canadian company with perhaps the most sophisticated AI the healthcare sector has ever seen …
Because it was developed by, and trained by, a huge team of doctors and medical experts from all over the world. Now, it’s about to launch in North America. And plans to then go global. City by city.
The company is Treatment.com International Inc. (TRUE; TREIF)and the world has never seen anything like global library of medicine, nor CARA, the new doctor-developed AI that could be set to revolutionize the $11 trillion healthcare industry
CARA is personalized in every way. CARA, Treatment’s Digital Assistant assesses symptoms based on your actual information; CARA helps you to diagnose health problems, makes recommendations, tracks and monitors your symptoms and follows up with your healthcare every step of the way. From cradle to grave, CARA helps you and your entire family (including caregivers) manage healthcare. The technology is 100% proprietary and it’s ready to win over a massive consumer base that is begging for a healthcare revolution.
AI Healthcare Is Here
Medical apps are tapped to be the fastest-growing IT healthcare segment, with consumers starving for better services that they can actually control and understand. We’re just at the beginning of a complete revolution in the healthcare industry, and Treatment.com is the first to truly attempt to empower the consumer with AI that thinks like a doctor because it was trained by real doctors over the past six years. The team behind it has a near perfect track record in building and scaling IT infrastructure, particularly in the healthcare sector, with major rewards for investors.
For the past 6 years, a team of over 40 global world-class medical experts have been working to build the AI infrastructure for CARA and Treatment.com International Inc. The AI is already so sophisticated it’s been licensed by the University of Minnesota Medical School to teach and test medical students.
The Rush For Healthcare Solutions Is Heating Up
UK-based Babylon Health, a telehealth startup, is set to go public in the U.S. via a $4.2-billion SPAC deal. Big money should be looking for better deals than this, though. Deals that prioritize and emphasize artificial intelligence.
That’s what makes Babylon less attractive than it could be, says Treatment.com’s Dr. Keven Peterson. “Babylon has struggled to provide an effective [AI powered] clinical decision support product. Their revenues are based on their clinical telemedicine, which uses the weakness of their app to draw people into the telemedicine interaction,” Peterson said, commenting on the $4.2-billion SPAC deal.
Treatment.com International offers digital capabilities powered by AI that are stronger than anything thrown at the market to date.
Medical apps powered by AI are poised to explode precisely because the AI brings everything together, intelligently. Americans are desperate for healthcare clarity; Treatment.comgives it to them. Googling symptoms does not.
CARA isn’t a game of googling symptoms and coming up with the most-searched piece of potential, anxiety-causing misinformation. CARA uses your medical records and the power of sophisticated AI trained by doctors to assess your symptoms and get you the care that you need, seamlessly.
All of this makes the underlying, 100% owned proprietary IP something that should have investor interest piqued. Keep this name on your radar as Treatment.com International (TRUE; TREIF)plans to launch it’s ground-breaking APP – ‘CARA’ – powered by the most comprehensive AI in the industry, before the end of this year.
