Quantim is the Health Information Management (HIM) business division of QuadraMed.

The Quantim solution suite also includes a Computer-Assisted Coding solution and ICD-10 software and services that help health systems prepare for the transition to ICD-10.


“The strategic sale of Quantim to Nuance is a win for all parties,” said Ezra Perlman, a partner at Francisco Partners and board member at QuadraMed. “Together, Nuance and Quantim will be stronger than they have been separately, which will benefit Quantim’s customers and employees. We also look forward to continuing to support QuadraMed and contributing to its ongoing success.”
