REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biotricity Inc. (OTCQB: BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company, has expanded its sales team to cover two additional geographic centers in the US that are key to driving faster adoption of its flagship product, Bioflux. The Company has been experiencing great traction with its technology in the marketplace and feels this is the right time to capitalize on its initial momentum and increase its regional footprint. Biotricity is confident that broadening its influence through expansion in high growth sectors will help accelerate sales, drive revenue, and develop market share.
The Company is also expanding its Scientific Advisory board with a focus on tailoring its solution for preemptive heart disease identification in new markets. The focus of healthcare is shifting towards outpatient healthcare, with prevention at the forefront of the movement. Remote patient monitoring can become a key driver of this shift when implemented in the right markets. “Our Bioflux has proven to be a formidable technology as we continue to gain significant clinical approval and adoption in emerging markets of outpatient monitoring, which also coincides with CMS’s ongoing strategies and efforts to transition many surgical and endovascular procedures to Ambulatory Surgery Centers,” said Casey Shattuck, VP of Sales. “We truly believe we are entering the infancy of outpatient monitoring.” Biotricity has already identified three potential markets where its technology can be applied and plans to announce more details on this initiative over the next three quarters.
“One of the greatest challenges facing the United States today is the growing cost of healthcare for chronic diseases such as heart disease,” said Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Biotricity Founder and CEO. “Preemptive diagnostics through remote monitoring has the potential to make a major impact on this issue, driving a reduction in costs and improved patient outcomes and quality of life.” The Company considers remote monitoring medical-grade devices a significant component of its product development roadmap and plans to expand its offering with time.
