As a result of these dynamics, physicians are constantly being bombarded with messages. Traditional methods of communication, including mail, faxes, web portals and banner ads, have demonstrated limited effectiveness in impacting physician behavior. To cut through the noise and hold a physician’s attention, information must be delivered objectively and conveniently, on the physician’s terms. Quantia solves these issues with a single comprehensive web-based and mobile platform that currently has an addressable annual market opportunity in the U.S. between $1 billion and $2 billion.“At Quantia, we’ve cracked the code on how to truly engage physicians in a way that creates positive relationships and generates effective change at the point of care,” said Mike Coyne, CEO of Quantia. “This financing will help us accelerate our sales and marketing efforts and continue to grow QuantiaMD, our active and vibrant physician community, which recently surpassed 200,000 physician members. We are thrilled to have the Safeguard team on board.” About Quantia Quantia, Inc. is a leader in Physician Relationship Management.
