QuantiaMD Now Largest Online and Mobile Physician Community With Over 125,000 Physician Users
Company Prepares for Next Phase of Growth by Doubling Work-Force, Expanding Executive Team and Delivering New Mobile and Web Physician Services
WALTHAM, MA — APRIL 27, 2011 - QuantiaMD® has become the leading online and mobile physician community and a destination for over 125,000 physicians to learn and connect with each other. Every day, clinicians come to QuantiaMD— a third of them through mobile apps on smartphones and tablets— to engage with their peers and respond to a wide variety of interactive medical cases and presentations. To prepare for its continued growth beyond its current user-base of 1 in 6 U.S. physicians, QuantiaMD doubled its work-force in 2010, expanded its executive team and has recently released a major version with new content, resources and services for its community.
QuantiaMD is a unique online and mobile physician community that draws on the input of more than 125,000 physicians and other medical professionals. Educational content is developed by experts and delivered in concise, interactive 5-8 minute narrated presentations and cases that allow physicians to instantly connect and learn from colleagues across the country. Physicians can experience thousands of presentations on topics such as diabetes, mental health, infectious disease, patient safety and physician leadership, turning brief periods of downtime into productive learning experiences.
To better serve its fast-growing membership, Quantia continues to deliver innovation and enhance its web and mobile user experience to provide an increasing set of essential services to clinicians, helping them make more effective use of their time. QuantiaMD is convenient for members to use when and where they want – accessible through the web on conventional computers, as well as through a mobile application on smartphones, and on tablets running the Apple (iPad) and Android operating systems.
“Today’s physicians face extraordinary demands on their time and pressure on their performance,” said Michael Paskavitz, Editor in Chief of QuantiaMD. “Unfortunately, many physicians live with these pressures and demands in isolation, with limited access to the peers, expertise and resources needed to support them professionally. Based on their level and rate of engagement with QuantiaMD, it is apparent that physicians value the access to expert content and peers, and appreciate the respect shown for their time.”
QuantiaMD continues to build its workforce to meet ever-increasing demand for its services and now includes an expanded executive team located at its headquarters in Waltham, MA and in locations across the country. New executive hires include Chief Communications Officer, Mary Modahl, whose experience encompasses a variety of board level, consulting and agency roles in healthcare and education. Prior to joining QuantiaMD, Modahl held executive roles at Forrester Research and most recently served as Senior Vice President of Marketing, Communications, and Government Affairs at Health Dialog. New Vice President of Innovation and Customer Solutions, Kelly Choi, MD, brings a unique perspective and experience from her years in the pharmaceutical industry and as a physician in internal medicine and cardiology. Choi comes to QuantiaMD from Novartis where she held various directorial positions and has previously held a managerial position at McKinsey & Company.
“We are honored to serve our clinician members and proud that so many have chosen QuantiaMD for collaboration, learning, services and resources to improve patient care”, said Eric Schultz, Quantia Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to exceeding our next goal of 200,000 clinician members as we continue to expand our services and partnerships.”
