    According to a recent report (“Internet of Medical Things Enabling Hospitals of the Future”) from Frost & Sullivan, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is helping to drive the home healthcare industry into new innovations that are clustered around wearables and eSkin devices – the type of devices that small cap Biotricity Inc (OTCQB: BTCY) is developing. To begin with, the Internet of Medical Things is part of the much bigger Internet of Things (IoT) idea with IoMT consisting connected medical devices or applications feeding medical or patient data into the cloud via online networks. In addition and aside from Internet of Medical Things, there is also another trend in healthcare to move away from “reactive” healthcare where a patient visits a healthcare facility to deal with a problem and to instead move toward “proactive” healthcare care where the patient takes a degree of responsibility for their own health through the use of health monitoring systems (enabled by IoMT).

    Small cap Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) company Biotricity Inc (OTCQB: BTCY), which is building a remote patient monitoring platform, has just released operational updates for fiscal Q2 2018 (which ended September 30, 2018). To begin with, Bioflux 1.0 (which is a high-precision, single-unit mobile cardiac telemetry or MCT device that provides real-time monitoring and transmission of ambulatory patients’ ECG information) experienced record high sales growth and market expansion during the fiscal Q2 2018 – including a 150% increase in total device sales and a 75% increase in new customers from Q1. Existing customers continued to purchase additional units leading to a 62% increase in repeat customer orders from Q1.

    Small cap Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) company Biotricity, Inc (OTCBB: BTCY) has just announced that it will be expanding the scope of a previously approved clinical investigation of fetal heart rate variability (fHRV) to include maternal HRV and other key physiologic metrics for maximum predictive accuracy and efficiency. This is potentially a good area to be in due to the fact that high-risk pregnancies require extensive monitoring and care during the gestational period. High-risk pregnancies are also on the rise and now account for 6 – 8% of all pregnancies in the U.S. due in part to a rise in existing maternal health conditions (such as high blood pressure and obesity) and older parental age at the time of pregnancy. This means that the maternal and fetal monitoring market is growing rapidly and is expected to be worth $2.3 Billion by 2019.

Mark Carney may be wondering at times if less is more when he speaks to financial markets.

After a bruising month that’s seen his own signals on interest rates questioned and one of his deputies forced to apologize for calling the economy menopausal, communication is once again a hot topic for the Bank of England governor.

Carney, who arrived at the BOE in 2013 with forward guidance as his signature policy, will come under more scrutiny this week when he faces a grilling from U.K. lawmakers. He’ll also give speeches in London and Stockholm.

“Some people would say the safest thing for the Bank of England to do right now is to go back to being mystical,” said Clea Bourne, a senior lecturer and financial communications specialist at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Communication dominated Carney’s press conference following the BOE’s May 10 policy announcement, and will doubtless figure in Tuesday’s session in Parliament. Carney and his colleagues will be questioned on the decision, which saw officials hold off on a rate hike that had been seen as a certainty just weeks earlier. Brexit and its impact on the economy will also probably feature at the hearing.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

What happened

Shares of natural gas fuel company Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) fell as much as 12.7% in trading Friday as oil prices continue to swing wildly on the market. Shares gained back some of their losses late in the day but were still down 8.7% at 3:25 p.m. EDT.

So what

Yesterday, fellow Fool Jason Hall highlighted how rising oil prices were helping push Clean Energy Fuels’ shares higher. That trade reversed course today with WTI crude oil prices down 2% to $65.68 and Brent crude oil down 1.1% to $76.69 as I’m writing.

The truth is that a stock that’s risen as fast as Clean Energy Fuels is bound to pull back eventually. And shares are still trading at the same level as earlier this week.
