Date:1/27/2009

WELLINGTON, Fla., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quantum Group, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: QGP) (www.QuantumMD.com) announced today that PWeR(TM) (Personal Wellness electronic Record), the healthcare information platform developed by the Company, may be used by healthcare providers to apply for eligibility to receive a bonus from Medicare through the e-prescriptions function within the platform.

This month Medicare began the 2009 e-Prescribing Incentive Program. The program specifies, "Eligible professionals who successfully report the e- prescribing measure in 2009 may be eligible to receive an incentive payment equal to 2% of all their Medicare Part B (Fee-for-Service, or FFS) allowed charges for services furnished during the reporting period."

Noel J. Guillama, Quantum President & CEO commented, "One of the areas of greatest concern for healthcare providers is diminishing reimbursements. This new CMS/Medicare program offers the opportunity to increase their reimbursement by leveraging technology, a measure which is clearly in line with the national priority to reform healthcare, reduce costs and save lives. We believe PWeR can help with the achievement of those national goals, and can enable our providers to take advantage of this new program right now." Guillama continued, "According to government studies, e-Prescribing has been shown to reduce prescription errors and to cut costs for consumers and healthcare providers. We are pleased to offer this revenue enhancing and quality improvement opportunity to our network of providers and prospective users throughout the industry."

Pete Martinez, Quantum Senior Vice President and Chief Technology & Innovations Officer added, "We believe PWeR is a 21st Century model for healthcare leveraging the existing structures for managed care with a lower cost, more effective platform in
