Date:1/15/2009

WELLINGTON, Fla., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quantum Group, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: QGP) (http://www.QuantumMD.com), a solutions provider for the healthcare industry, announced today that it has entered into a multi-year services agreement with IBM (NYSE: IBM). Earlier this year Quantum announced the launch of the PWeR(TM) (Personal Wellness electronic Record) healthcare information platform. In a strategic move Quantum selected IBM as a cornerstone of its information management, storage, security and privacy focus. IBM's web hosting enables the most advanced scalable platform for growth into national and international arenas while providing the richness of features, access and security demanded by the healthcare industry.

"This is a very natural and innovative relationship between Quantum and IBM," said Pete Martinez Quantum Senior Vice President and Chief Technology & Innovations Officer. "Our partner doctors, clinics and hospitals have demonstrated great acceptance of our PWeR system, its function, ease of use and price. The state-of-the-art global access, scalability and technology will facilitate and further our advances in empowering patients, enabling providers and enriching the science of healthcare."

"As healthcare service providers across the nation make the inevitable connection between information technology and any successful transformation of healthcare around a patient-centered, primary-care-based model, we're proud to offer IBM's web hosting technology as the cornerstone for Quantum's Personal Wellness electronic Record (PWeR) healthcare information platform," said Dr. Paul Grundy, Director, IBM Healthcare Transformation. "By providing the flexibility and scalability that's required to support the company's rapid growth across Florida's healthcare industry, Quantum can help to ensure that the physicians and patients they serve have secure access to up-to-date medical records anywhere in the world that Internet access exists."

"We believe this combination of Quantum PWeR and IBM will take healthcare to new heights in evidenced-based medicine, quality and speed with the highest levels of privacy and security," said Noel J. Guillama, Quantum CEO. "Healthcare is a topic of national priority and requires the collaborative leadership and innovation of its core players. This announcement cements a key component of our strategy."

IBM is the world leader in managed hosting, with extensive experience in managing large business applications and providing world-class security, performance and technology.
