WELLINGTON, Fla., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quantum Group, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: QGP) (www.QuantumMD.com) announced today that PWeR(TM) (Personal Wellness electronic Record), will make its debut at the 2009 Pri-Med South Conference and Expo alongside Renaissance Health Systems (RHS).
Quantum believes PWeR is the next generation in healthcare technology and is in line with the technology reform President Obama is calling for within the industry. Pete Martinez, Quantum Senior Vice President and Chief Technology & Innovations Officer commented, "The healthcare industry is highly fragmented, and the technology solutions the industry has seen to date have worked to tackle isolated challenges. PWeR is different as it integrates all of these applications into one complete, web-based system."
Remarking on the evolution of technology in healthcare Martinez noted, "We believe the reasons that many of the EMR systems on the market today are experiencing difficulty gaining acceptance and traction are three-fold: The EMRs are software programs (applications) that are very expensive to install and maintain. They are difficult to implement and have proven to be disruptive to practice workflows. Finally, the systems are provider-centric and lack interoperability. In the 21st Century, enterprise systems and Personal Wellness electronic Records are integrated and architected to services models. They are Web-based and simple to use. The information is stored in the 'cloud' for the highest levels of privacy, security and convenience. Further, these are affordable services not endless boxes of incompatible software. We are more than an EMR; we are a total solution that connects the physicians, hospitals, clinics, payers and even the patient, into a dynamic, low-cost, user-friendly and intelligent system. PWeR is hosted by IBM and offers accessibility to a patient's comprehensive medical history - anywhere, anytime."
Renaissance is a subsidiary company of The Quantum Group which has approximately 2,000 affiliated physicians and healthcare providers. This network of healthcare providers is utilized to provide care for the patient lives assigned to Renaissance by the health plan partners contracted with the Company. This is the third year Renaissance Health Systems will be exhibiting at the Pri-Med Expo.
Pri-Med South is attended by nearly 6,000 healthcare providers from Florida and the southeast United States. The exhibition was established to provide members with exposure to new products and services, access to continuing medical education courses and seminars as well as networking opportunities. The expo runs from February 13 - February 15, 2009, and is being held at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
