Quadrant 4 System Corp. on Wednesday announced HealthSmart will implement Quadrant 4’s QHIX Benefits Administration and Private Health Exchange capabilities.

"We are very pleased to be working with the HealthSmart team on multiple deployments of our core technology, QHIX,” Quadrant 4 CEO Nandu Thondavadi said. “HealthSmart is a great organization and our corporate cultures are very similar. Our teams are already working together closely on multiple deployments. This is a big win for Quadrant 4 as it demonstrates how our platform was built to serve a broad operational third-party administrator like HealthSmart.”

HealthSmart, the largest independent provider of managed care solutions for self-funded employers, will start deploying benefits and private health exchange capabilities for its 1.2 million members.
