About The Quantum Group, Inc.
The Quantum Group is an innovation-driven Healthcare Services Organization (HSO) that provides business process solutions, service chain management, strategic consulting and leading edge technology to the healthcare industry.
Quantum has developed and deployed PWeR(TM) (www.myPWeR.com), a cutting-edge, patent-pending healthcare technology system that has been designed to bridge the gaps of communication and exchange of patient information throughout the healthcare industry. To date eighteen provisional and one utility patent application have been filed in support of PWeR. The system can integrate all of the functions a physician/provider, hospital, clinic and related professionals utilize in one patient-centric, web-based platform and falls well within the economic incentives offered by the new $19 billion Stimulus Package for healthcare information technology. We believe we are positioned to be a catalyst for change as we take aim at the $700 billion inefficiency gap in the United States healthcare industry.
