"With the continued growth of value-based healthcare, CareChex's objective, comprehensive data on clinical quality, cost of care and service utilization is invaluable to purchasers, providers and consumers," said Trey Cook, president and CEO of Quantros.

"Hospitals need specific, meaningful data to assess their performance and take advantage of competitive positioning, as well as identify opportunities for improvement. Meanwhile, payers look to this information to evaluate potential alliances, partnerships and network creation," he added.
