The Quantum Group Announces Support of Technology Bill Before Congress
Date:1/20/2009

WELLINGTON, Fla., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quantum Group, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: QGP) (www.QuantumMD.com), a solutions provider for the healthcare industry, announced today that it supports the American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009 for healthcare IT investment.

The Quantum Group President and CEO, Noel J. Guillama, stated, "In the next few weeks Congress will be considering the American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009. This proposal currently contains approximately $24 billion for healthcare with most of it designated for expanding information technology. The proposal states that $20 billion will be used 'for health information technology to prevent medical mistakes, provide better care to patients and introduce cost-saving efficiencies.' We commend our Country's leadership for constructing this proposal and we strongly support its passage."

Guillama continued, "We believe that the transformation of the healthcare industry should be primarily driven by the implementation of more intelligent and comprehensive technology systems to lower costs, improve care and save lives."

Quantum believes it is designed to do what no other company in healthcare has done. The Company is creating healthcare delivery systems available to all payers (insurance companies, HMOs, employers and government) to manage patient care. The Company aggregates payers and systems for healthcare providers (physicians) and streamlines their operations with one another. Additionally, Quantum is providing a world-class, patient-centric and internet based technology for physicians, facilities and other healthcare providers to include electronic records and related advanced information services. The Quantum model has been further integrated with outsourcing services to the industry on one common technology platform to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and enhance the quality of patient care.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009 states in part: "Lower Healthcare Costs: To save not only jobs, but money and lives, we will update and computerize our healthcare system to cut red tape, prevent medical mistakes, and help reduce healthcare costs by billions of dollars each year. $20 billion for health information technology to prevent medical mistakes, provide better care to patients and introduce cost-saving efficiencies. $4.1 billion to provide for preventative care and to evaluate the most effective healthcare treatments."

The Quantum Group believes that the revolution in healthcare has already begun. The Company further believes that through the proposals of the new Obama administration this revolution will continue to expand. Guillama noted, "Our Company is eager for the implementation of President Obama's healthcare plan as we believe our model is right in-line."
