Quantum Health, the nation's leader in care coordination and consumer navigation, announced today that is has been named one of the fastest growing women-owned/led companies in the U.S. by the Women President's Organization (WPO). This is the eighth year the WPO has released its rankings, the second year nominations were open to global entries, and the fourth year that Quantum Health has made the list.
Founded in Columbus, OH in 1999 with just five employees, Quantum Health has grown to almost 500 employees serving more than 400,000 plan participants. The company manages over $6 billion in health plan spend on behalf of its self-insured employer clients. Quantum Health's groundbreaking consumer behavior research led to the creation of the care coordination and consumer navigation segment, a rapidly growing healthcare sector.
"It is an honor to be recognized among such a distinguished group of women entrepreneurs," said Kara J. Trott, chief executive officer and founder of Quantum Health. "Quantum Health's remarkable growth is fueled by the dedicated and passionate team of professionals who work every day to deliver an exceptional member experience."
The WPO award, in partnership with American Express Global Corporate Payments, ranked companies according to a sales growth formula that combines percentage and absolute growth. From this list, the 50 Fastest were selected. To qualify for the ranking, businesses must be privately held, women owned/led, and have reached revenue of at least $500,000 in 2010 and $2 million in 2014.
