    More about Quantium Health

    Data is abundant in health care in South Africa and Australia, but often remains fragmented in silos. This means that key decisions must often be made without a complete view of the facts. We believe that, in health care, accurate and timely information should form the foundation for every question we ask, every direction we choose and every decision we make.

    Comprehensive data and health system expertise can help bring greater insight, better decisions and optimal outcomes to the forefront of both clinical and policy decision making. Our health data ecosystem, and the tools and techniques we create, support data custodians, clinicians, policy makers and health care consumers to benefit from a holistic view of health and health care delivery.

    We are using technology that pushes our products to the limit and developing tools and applications to solve problems in ways that nobody else has. We are working with pioneering open source technology and solving client opportunities worth tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars. Our people are passionate about data. They are smart, innovative and motivated to identify and solve new and interesting client problems.    

    Joining Quantium Health enables learning from the best people in healthcare, strategy, and applied analytics.
