In connection with the new product version and to better align its technology portfolio under one brand, Quest is migrating the ChartMaxx® brand into the Quanum™ Solutions portfolio as Quanum Enterprise Content Solutions.

Content management is a critical healthcare issue for complex and large health organizations which maintain large quantities of patient, billing, legal and other content, often decades old. This content is typically saved in various file types and systems, impeding information flow. Enterprise Content Solutions connects disparate systems to remove silos and allow free flow of content by authorized users. Typical applications include incorporating imaging test files into electronic health records, on-demand form downloads for patients to fill out prior to a visit, and cataloguing contracts to name a few.
