A massive disruption now appears imminent in one of the world’s largest – and most important – industries.
In much the same way that Amazon disrupted the retail business – and how PayPal disrupted the payments industry – one under-the-radar health technology company now seeks to transform the $11.85 trillion global health industry.
By moving healthcare away from brick and mortar, traditional medicine into an AI-driven tool that offers unprecedented speed, efficiency, and accuracy…
Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) appears ready to change the face of medicine in a profound way.
Investors still have a brief window of opportunity to get in on this transformational investment opportunity while it still flies beneath Wall Street’s radar.
But as you’ll soon discover, this company’s technology is so powerful that it could become a valuable addition to hundreds of millions of households worldwide.
Consumers Are Increasingly Turning to Digital Technology to Manage Their Health
Whether most patients, providers, or large healthcare companies realize it or not, the healthcare industry is already in the early stages of significant change.
That’s because patients now desire access to more information – and better information – in the blink of an eye.
In a recent survey of U.S. health consumers, 71% reported facing major frustrations through their experience with healthcare providers. Concerns ranged from difficulties scheduling appointments to impersonal visits.
This means that the days of scheduling an appointment and spending hours in a doctor’s waiting room just to discuss a minor health issue could soon be long gone.
One billion people turn to Google each day to inquire about their health concerns. Wellness Apps were downloaded 1.2 billion times in 2020. And telemedicine grew 46% from 2019 to 2020.
And the Covid-19 pandemic only accelerated this change, as millions of patients adapted to telehealth and online options for healthcare faster than they had imagined they ever would.
Just as consumers are more frequently reaching out and demanding more powerful, digital options to help manage their health…along comes Treatment.com.
Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) is a disruptive, forward-thinking healthcare technology company that is using the power of Artificial Intelligence to help consumers improve their health through personalized recommendations and insights.
Treatment.com is Making Better Information Available More Easily…So Patients Can Have Better Outcomes
For five years, Treatment.com’s global team of doctors and engineers worked to build and train a powerful Treatment Global Library of Medicine AI platform, so that it can think like a doctor and help consumers improve their health in a way far more efficient than traditional healthcare options.
Their program proved to be so effective that the University of Minnesota Medical School actually licensed it for the purposes of testing its medical students.
They spent over $10 million dollars – over five years – and worked with more than 100 doctors and 75 technical people to build the most personalized, intelligent healthcare AI on the planet.
Leading the effort to build this AI has been the company’s founder and CEO, John Fraser, a pioneer in the healthcare IT space who previously founded and led a healthcare IT company that was acquired for $1.2 billion.
In addition, the company’s technical team – responsible for building the AI – is led by some of Canada’s foremost experts on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
Treatment.com assembled the latest and best information possible into a global library of medicine, providing consumers with access to high-quality health information regardless of who they are or where they live.
The end result of this groundbreaking development is the company’s potentially disruptive new AI health assistant app, known as CARA.
Treatment’s Mobile App, in CARA is designed to give both caregivers and consumers the power to stay on top of their health and the health of their families.
Consumers are already turning to digital technology – in the form of Google searches or primitive health apps – to understand their general health and get answers to questions about their conditions.
Now… with the launch of CARA – Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) has hopes of permanently changing the access to healthcare for millions of patients.
In much the same way that consumers moved from brick-and-mortar shopping to the convenience and speed of Amazon…those patients seeking better healthcare solutions will now have access to a revolutionary new AI-driven platform.
Answers to health questions – and access to superior medical knowledge – are now available at your fingertips…24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This is a true game-changer for the healthcare industry, as the global database of knowledge comes together with convenient, easy-to-use app technology – all driven by powerful AI that allows the consumer to have uninterrupted access to an app truly designed to “think like a doctor.”
CARA is unlike other healthcare apps in that it takes into consideration the medical history and individual characteristics of every person that can impact the likelihood of a disease. Factors that other online assessment tools simply ignore.
In addition, CARA learns from the consumer’s medical profile, wearable data and individual tracking data. CARA then leverages the insights and recommendations developed by the company’s proprietary AI to build easy and supportive tools to help ensure great health.
The CARA app also offers a comprehensive health and wellness tracking and analytics platform that integrates seamlessly with wearable devices (such as Apple Watch or Fitbit) so the company can seek to efficiently capitalize on the multi-trillion-dollar wellness industry.
CARA allows consumers to…
Keep Track of Loved Ones – Manage multiple profiles from a single account and easily keep track of family.
Manage Intelligent Follow-Ups – CARA will follow up to make sure the consumer is staying on top of symptoms and provide access to the latest prevention insights and tips.
Share the Knowledge – At any time, a patient can take their health assessment to their family doctor or other healthcare provider.
Track Symptoms – Track a symptom or medical condition over time to see how things have changed and stay on top of health concerns.
Treatment.com Partners with MentorMate to Create the Future of Healthcare AI
Just recently – on September 15 – Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) took another significant step toward making CARA available to hundreds of millions of consumers.
That’s the date that the company announced the consolidation of its advanced AI development capabilities with MentorMate, a leading healthcare software development firm based in the United States.
MentorMate is a global leader in mobile application development, with over 700 developers in the United State and the EU. Headquartered in Minneapolis near Treatment’s US operations, MentorMate specializes in advanced solutions for leading health care organizations.
With over 19 years in business and over 1,400 completed projects, MentorMate has the experience and scale to support rapidly expanding products – which makes the company ideal to team up with Treatment.com.
This exciting new collaboration consolidates the expertise of Treatment.com’s Global Library of Medicine, as well as support and maintenance of Cara, with MentorMate’s expertise. Together, these two companies have the depth and experience to support Treatment.com’s world-class medical AI products.
MentorMate’s proven track record in delivering high-quality health care software demonstrates they have the experience to deliver and support Treatment.com’s growing portfolio of healthcare solutions.
Multiple Revenue Streams Could Mean High Upside Potential for Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE) Investors
Of course, building a great AI platform – and bringing to market a powerful app such as CARA – is only part of the equation for Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE)(OTC:TREIF).
When evaluating the company’s investment potential, it’s important to see a clear, consistent path toward revenue. And in the case of Treatment.com, the company has three distinct revenue streams that add to its attractiveness:
Revenue Stream #1: Mobile App Subscriptions – Treatment.com’s (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) CARA app provides health insights and recommendations that offer deep consumer value. Consumers have demonstrated their willingness to pay for useful mobile wellness apps, and Treatment.com’s app is positioned well thanks to its powerful, proprietary AI platform.
Revenue Stream #2: Health & Wellness Platform – The second revenue stream involves Treatment.com’s leveraging of its health knowledge to recommend paid products and services to consumers. These can include telemedicine, clinics, pharmacies, wellness practitioners, and health products.
Revenue Stream #3: Clinical & Academic Applications – The company plans to leverage its AI for products in the medical industry, including university medical school training, as has already been done at the University of Minnesota Medical School. In addition, Treatment.com’s AI allows for integration with health clinics, resulting in more efficient, accurate healthcare visits.
On top of those initial projected revenue streams, the potential value of the patient insights and data collected by the company’s app could also have enormous value for third parties such as insurance providers, doctors’ offices, and government entities.
Access to this health data will provide deep insights, trends, and predictions that could allow these providers to provide better, more impactful health services on a broad scale.
Treatment.com is Led by an Expert Medical and Technical Team
In order for a healthcare technology company to be successful, it’s essential for it to have access to the most experienced, intelligent technical and medical minds available.
And that’s precisely the type of expertise Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) has assembled with its leadership team.
The company’s founder and CEO, John Fraser, is a software and technology expert who has built and sold several healthcare software companies. His first company, Ability Networks, was purchased by Inovalon for $1.2 billion.
Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kevin Peterson is a true pioneer in the industry, with 35 years of experience as a professor at the University of Minnesota.

And he has served as a System Analyst, Computer System Architect, and Software Developer for numerous development projects including the NEXRAD Doppler Weather Radar System and the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.
And Director of AI Research Dr. David Poole is a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) and the winner of the Canadian AI Association (CAIAC) 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Treatment.com Appears to Be an Undervalued, Under-the-Radar Opportunity Worthy of Serious Consideration
When compared with other companies in the space – many of which are still privately held – Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) appears to offer investors an attractive, investment opportunity in a company that has the potential for significant growth in valuation.
It appears that Treatment.com could have significant upside potential based solely on the valuations of its competitors (see chart above.)
But the true potential of this opportunity could reach far beyond such comparables due to the big tech platform built by doctors for doctors on a global scale
This is a company that appears to be on the verge of bringing massive disruption to the $11.85 trillion healthcare industry…at the precise time when consumers are demanding just such a disruption.
With a powerful, easy-to-use app – driven by its proprietary AI – Treatment.com is bringing consumers the type of improved healthcare access they’ve been searching for.
Opportunities for true disruption – as seen with companies like Amazon, PayPal, and Netflix – are truly rare.
It’s almost impossible to think of a world before those companies transformed their industries…just as it may soon be impossible to think back to the days of our outdated, inefficient healthcare system.
Treatment.com (CSE: TRUE; OTC: TREIF) offers the potential to bring an Amazon-style disruption to the healthcare industry at precisely the right time. This is one to keep a close eye on.
Other healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies making major waves:
Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) is a biopharmaceutical company that develops medicines to treat rare diseases. The company was founded in 2003 by Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, who had previously discovered the first approved treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Sage Therapeutics has since gone on to create treatments for other cancers and genetic disorders, including Pompe disease, Sanfilippo syndrome type A, Fabry disease and Gaucher disease. These therapies have been approved in over 40 countries around the world and are changing lives every day.
Sage Therapuetics is a fantastic example of a company using its resources to tackle the growing mental health crisis in the United States and abroad. With a focus on exciting new ways to treat mental health disorders, the company released the only FDA-approved treatment for post-partum depression. It's drug, Zulresso, soared through clinical trials with no issues, and is advertised to help mothers feel better in just 2.5 days. The drug is administered under the careful guidance of professionals in their specialized treatment centers and has been a huge success for the company.
But that’s not all it’s working on. Another drug in Sage’s pipeline is Zuranolone, which seeks to treat major depressive disorder and even treatment resistant depressive disorders. The drug is already in phase three of testing and could potentially provide help for patients who have previously struggled to find a medication that works for them.
Cassava Sciences (NASDAQ:SAVA) is a company that aims to make life-saving diagnostics and vaccines affordable and easily accessible for people in need. They believe all lives matter, and they are committed to saving as many lives as possible by making their products available to those who can't afford them. Cassava Sciences has two major projects: The first is their proprietary vaccine-making technology called "Cassava Plant Technology" (CPT), which allows us to use the cassava plant as an inexpensive seed starter platform for producing vaccines that would otherwise be too expensive or difficult to manufacture due to biosafety concerns. Second, they have developed a process of manufacturing diagnostic kits locally at very low cost.
Cassava Sciences is another company making major waves in the treatment of mental health, in particular, Alzheimer's disease. While its Sumifilam is still in its clinical trials, it's outlook is promising. The revolutionary new drug aims to help treat the devastating Alzheimer's disease by bringing together different proteins to interact properly.
Alzheimer’s affects over 5 million people in the United States alone, and it’s set to grow in the years ahead. And unfortunately, it’s incurable. Treatments such as these can offer a higher quality of life for patients suffering with the disease, and Cassava’s efforts could be life-changing.
Cassava has had an incredible year. And has continued to make headlines with new partnerships, grants, and deals. Thanks to its efforts, it has seen its share price skyrocket from just $2 last May to its current price of $37.50. That’s a 1775% return for early investors in this innovative company.
COMPASS Pathways plc (NASDAQ:CMPS) is an international company that provides engineering and construction services for the oil and gas industry. The company was founded in 2004, with headquarters in London, UK. Compass has a global presence: offices located in Houston, Texas; Aberdeen, Scotland; Kuwait City, Kuwait; Dubai and Khobar in the United Arab Emirates; Moscow Russia; Singapore and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
COMPASS Pathways is a mental health care company dedicated to accelerating patient access to evidence-based innovation in mental health. The company is pioneering the development of a new model of psilocybin therapy, in which a proprietary formulation of synthetic psilocybin, COMP360, is administered in conjunction with psychological support. COMP360 has been designated a Breakthrough Therapy by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for treatment-resistant depression (TRD), and the company is currently conducting a phase IIb clinical trial of psilocybin therapy for TRD, in 20 sites across Europe and North America. COMPASS’ meticulous approach to psilocybin treatments is important because, while legalization may look imminent, there’s still a long road ahead for this relatively new medicine.
"There simply isn't yet enough evidence of safety and efficacy of psilocybin therapy, which is why we're doing our trials," adding "the review and approval to regulatory agencies is really the best way ensure the safety, efficacy and quality of any medicine or therapy," CEO George Goldsmith explained.
Though the British company made its NYSE debut in September, COMPASS has made tremendous progress and has attracted a lot of attention along the way. Though its share price has fallen from its February highs, it is still one of the first-movers in the burgeoning psilocybin industry, which means there is still plenty of upside.
Neuronetics, Inc. (NYSE:STIM) is an industry leader in the development of neuromodulation therapies for neurological disorders and pain management. The company's products are based on a proprietary delivery platform that uses low-intensity electrical currents to stimulate nerve cells in the brain using electrodes on the surface of the head or via implanted leads directly into targeted areas of the nervous system. Neuronetics has developed both investigational devices and FDA-approved therapeutic devices for use in clinical trials, including deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy for Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia and other movement disorders; peripheral nerve field stimulation (PNFS) therapy for chronic neuropathic pain; vagus nerve stimulator therapy for epilepsy treatment-resistant depression among many others.
Neuronetics Inc. is a commercial-stage medical technology company focused on designing, developing, and marketing products that improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from psychiatric disorders. The company’s first commercial product, the NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy System, is a non-invasive and non-systemic office-based treatment that uses transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, to create a pulsed, MRI-strength magnetic field that induces electrical currents designed to stimulate specific areas of the brain associated with mood. The system is cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, for the treatment of major depressive disorder in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication in the current episode.
Working with its NeuroStar therapy system, the company’s TouchStar protocol is a non-drug, non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) treatment for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). Greg Harper, Vice President of Product Development and Operations at Neuronetics, explained, The TouchStar protocol is particularly impactful when paired with our patented Contact Sensing precision technology that provides clinicians with the confidence of knowing they are giving patients the right dose at the exact location."
Though Neuronetics posted a third quarter loss, the company did, however, beat earnings estimates. And it has outperformed many of its peers this year, which is no small feat. Since falling to $1.46 in March, Neuronetics has seen its share price soar by 480%, rising to a yearly high of $8.51.
Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACHC) offers a wide range of behavioral health and addiction services to its patients through the use of evidence-based treatment methods.

In addition, this company seeks out opportunities to provide education about these conditions as well as resources that will help people live healthier lives free from stigma or prejudice.

From psychiatric hospitals to residential treatment centers, the company is well-versed in the needs of patients in crisis, providing top-tier services for people suffering from a wide range of mental health issues.
Acadia has had a particularly strong year, rising over 20% since January alone. But that hardly compares to it’s 2020 showing. Acadia’s stock price was sitting at just $24 in May of 2020, and has since soared by nearly 200%, rising to its current price of $61. And with strong financials, the company’s share price could head even higher in the coming months.
Toronto-based Field Trip Health (CSE:FTRP) is taking a three-pronged approach in their work in the transformative psychedelic medicine sector. Not only are they involved in drug development, but they’re also involved in manufacturing and run a number of treatment clinics.

The company got it start from a major series of discoveries based out of the University of Calgary and has grown significantly over the past two decades.

Meni Morim, Chief Executive Officer of Namaste, noted of the transaction, "Acquiring the remaining interest in CannMart Labs is another important milestone achieved in establishing Namaste as a leading company within the Canadian cannabis sector,"
The Hexo Corporation (TSX:HEXO), as previously mentioned, made major waves with its partnership with Molson Coors to develop cannabis beverages.

The world is currently in the midst of a mental health crisis. Everything that could possibly go wrong, has. And to make matters worse, millions, if not tens of millions of people are stuck in isolation. It's never been more important to support the field of mental health. And the FDA seems to agree. Not only have they fast-tracked psilocybin, they've also approved other exciting new approaches to tackling mental health issues.
