Quantros and CACTUS Software Establish Strategic Alliance to Provide Customers With Comprehensive Provider Performance Monitoring
Date:8/17/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantros, Inc., an industry leader in healthcare data management and decision support solutions for safety, quality, compliance, and prospective surveillance, today announced a strategic alliance with CACTUS Software, a leading provider privileging and credentialing software and services. This relationship will expand the capabilities and simplify the ability of healthcare providers to more effectively analyze and evaluate physician performance across all relevant domains.

Areas of direct benefit for healthcare organizations include easing the compliance burden for OPPE and FPPE requirements from The Joint Commission (TJC) and providing a new level of practitioner performance insight. For clients using both Quantros and CACTUS Software (Quantros supports more than 2,000 healthcare organizations today; CACTUS Software supports more than 1,400 healthcare organizations), live HL-7 data streams will provide seamless transfer and integration of relevant data required for provider performance evaluations and peer review activities.

In addition Quantros clients will benefit from automatic referential updates to provider files within Quantros applications thereby eliminating periodic manual updates. By providing access to a centralized data warehouse across multiple, relevant data domains (patient safety, quality, compliance, finance and operations) and availability of key performance measures on providers, medical staff administrators will be better prepared to monitor and address practitioner performance and privileges.

"Healthcare providers are faced with transitioning from a traditional, siloed approach to privileging, credentialing and peer review to more rigorous, quantitative methods for examining provider performance and compliance," said Wayne Auer, President and CEO of CACTUS Software. "Our alliance with Quantros will enable our mutual customers to meet these demands with relative ease. Seamless, integrated access to core measures data, patient safety incident data, disruptive behavior data, complaints documentation, medical malpractice claims information, and compliance with accrediting agency standards in conjunction with our vast store of credentialing and privileging information on providers gives medical staff a new, more efficient way to manage practitioner performance and evaluation."

"The emergence and adoption of Pay for Performance initiatives, transparency requirements, and the required need for more timely evaluation of practitioner performance, including proactive monitoring of compliance associated with privileges, is driving the need for solutions that combine data sets across previously disparate data sources," noted Tom Leahy, Executive Vice President for Quantros. "Quantros solutions today amass, process, and house a tremendous amount of data for its clients that are relevant for practitioner performance evaluation activities. The relationship with CACTUS Software will allow performance and credentialing data to be integrated, reviewed, assessed and evaluated in real-time, thereby assisting healthcare providers to make informed decisions concerning practitioner performance."

Quantros and CACTUS Software combined serve more than 3,000 unique healthcare facilities across the United States. This broad market penetration will allow more than 60% of healthcare organizations to take advantage of this synergistic alliance right away and in the era of healthcare reform, help decrease administrative healthcare costs.
