BN-GZ066_EdpCha_P_20150216111110The Quantum Group, Inc. (QGP) is pleased to report that in the last month of 2016 it has added yet another success in the Company’s path towards helping redefine healthcare, with the issuance of its 13th patent.

This 13th patent was permanently recorded on December 27, 2016, as United States Patent #9,532,295. The patent, originally filed on August 23, 2013, bears the title “Predictive path communication protocol across a network of transiently connected mobile devices”.

One of the great benefits of PWeR is that it can collect and assemble all of an individual’s medical information from any point on the planet, and then store that data centrally, securely in one place, or online. Similarly, PWeR can then use the Internet to project it to any point on earth, on demand, as required, and in a secure manner. PWeR is capable of this, but in some places, communication of such large amounts of data is impractical and/or expensive. Predictive Path Protocol is a communication technique designed to resolve that limitation, inexpensively, at any remote point.

Electronic Health Record Market Expected to Surge
