WELLINGTON, Fla., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quantum Group, Inc. (NYSE Amex: QGP) (www.QuantumMD.com), a Healthcare Services Organization (HSO), announced today that Senior Vice President and Chief Technology & Innovations Officer, Pete Martinez is scheduled to present at the 5th Annual Winter Technology Conference hosted by Security Research Associates, Inc. The presentation is scheduled for 10:30 AM (pacific standard time) on Monday, March 9, 2009 at the Omni Hotel in San Francisco, California.
Martinez will provide an overview on The Quantum Group and will highlight PWeR(TM) (Personal Wellness electronic Record(TM)), the healthcare technology system developed by the Company. PWeR bridges the communication gap between physicians, hospitals, clinics, payers (insurers) and patients. It connects all of the applications and systems utilized by healthcare professionals into one web-based, patient-centric platform.
With the passage of the Stimulus Package, healthcare is about to be infused by $19.2 billion, largely to computerize the industry and improve the quality of patient care. The Company believes PWeR will benefit as the Stimulus provides for economic incentives for physicians and hospitals to implement and utilize electronic medical records (EMR). EMR is just one component of the full PWeR system.
Conference attendees will include a select group of institutional portfolio managers and analysts, and will feature CEOs and CFOs from some of the fastest growing companies in the technology sector. SRA has arranged to webcast company presentations during this event. To access the lobby page for the webcast of presenting companies please go to: http://www.wsw.com/webcast/sra8/

PWeR stands for Personal Wellness electronic Record(TM). This HIPAA-compliant, intelligent healthcare information platform hosts medical records and permits interactive use. Medical records will follow the patient, giving every healthcare provider that sees a particular patient access to all the information needed to assist in their diagnosis and treatment plan. Physicians can access a patient's entire medical record at one glance. Patients can look back over physician instructions or track their wellness progress. In critical situations or in providing treatment to PWeR patients, hospitals are enabled to access full medical histories and make educated treatment decisions based on accurate data. That's PWeR - complexity meets simplicity.
