Quantros, Inc. Expands Business Coalition Access to CareChex® Data Ratings of Medical Care, Signs Contract with Colorado Business Group on Health

, the healthcare industry’s leading provider of enterprise
safety risk management, quality management and reporting solutions,
announces that it has executed a contract with the Colorado Business
Group on Health to provide coalition members with access to CareChex®,
an information service of Quantros and regarded as the most
comprehensive site for rating medical care. Differentiated from other
publicly available quality ratings, CareChex® offers a composite
evaluation of all components of medical quality, including process of
care, outcomes of care, and patient experiences, and provides clinical,
financial and patient satisfaction findings to consumers, providers and
purchasers of U.S. medical care.

“We have been using this information with great impact on employers and
purchasers of healthcare here in Colorado,” says Donna Marshall,
executive director, Colorado Business Group on Health. “Transparency and
quality outcomes are key ingredients for helping employers change the
way they buy healthcare.”

With increased competition among hospitals and the growth of employer
value-based purchasing, CareChex® answers the critical need for a broad
range of quality indicators and objective – not subjective or
reputation-based – data regarding quality of care. Employers are seeking
more value for their healthcare dollars, and opportunities to reduce the
upward cost spiral and improve employee health.

Shane Wolverton, senior vice president, Corporate Development, Quantros,
says, “There is no better vote of confidence from the employer
marketplace than the designation of CareChex® as the benchmark for
assessing medical care. Its endorsement by such a high-profile and
credible organization as the Colorado Business Group on Health further
demonstrates the value of CareChex® and distinguishes this data from
other publicly available quality ratings.”
