FDA Registered Manufacturer Set to Mass Produce Medical Grade Healthcare and Consumer Devices
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Biotricity Inc. (OTCQB:BTCY), a healthcare technology company committed to delivering innovative, medically-relevant biometric remote monitoring solutions, today announced that it has selected contract manufacturer Providence Enterprise to mass produce its medical grade and IoT-connected healthcare devices. More specifically, Biotricity will outsource much of the supply chain to Providence to reduce costs, improve performance and meet the expected demand of Bioflux, a remote cardiac monitoring system that physicians will use for testing and diagnostic care.
Remote patient monitoring devices hold the promise of improving chronic disease management and reducing unnecessary costs. Using medical proven devices, physicians can monitor and track patients’ health and improve how medicine is applied and used for the treatment of chronic disease. The data can also be used to promote patient compliance, eldercare, wellness programs, etc.
“Our next-generation remote monitoring solutions will pave the way for the adoption of preventive care measures into mainstream healthcare practices and help move from the current ‘reactive’ model, where physicians diagnose and treat conditions and diseases after onset, to a proactive one,” said Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Biotricity founder and CEO. “Our first target is the world’s leading cause of death: cardiovascular disease which is still listed as the underlying cause of the death of more than 800,000 people in the US each year. As an FDA registered, Class I and Class II medical device contract manufacturer, Providence manufactures products for many of the top 10 global healthcare companies, as well as Fortune 500 companies. We are thrilled that Providence is ready to provide full production of our medical-grade devices and to help diagnose patients by tracking and reporting on cardiac activity in real-time.”
Biotricity is advancing the capabilities of remote biometric technology to improve the lives of people with chronic medical conditions. The Company’s goal is to develop multiple solutions for chronic illnesses by designing monitoring devices paired with chronic care management tools to improve patient compliance and empower the individual to take better care of their health. Consisting of an IoT-connected device, ECG-analysis software, and comprehensive remote monitoring center access, Bioflux generates customized reports tailored to a physician’s individual patient for diagnostic purposes.
“Today, there is increasing importance in advancing intellectual property and increasing the quantity of innovative, well manufactured, new products,” said Brett Freeman, Executive Vice President of Providence Enterprise LLC. “Our extensive experience in manufacturing combined with our global supply chain and ISO 13485, FDA QSR Part 820 & CGMP compliance manufacturing facility will help Biotricity capitalize on its tremendous market opportunity. We look forward to ensuring that they can meet the pending diagnostic needs of physicians and individuals looking to bridge the gap between diagnostic care and disease management.”
Biotricity will develop multiple solutions for chronic illnesses, including sleep apnea, diabetes, prenatal care, etc. by designing monitoring devices paired with chronic care management tools to improve patient compliance and empower the individual to take better care of their health. This is particularly true of managing heart-related illnesses because without any feedback mechanism or continuous monitoring, patients often fail to adhere to doctors’ medical directives, dietary changes, exercise regiments, and lifestyle alterations.
