Quality. Clarity. Opportunity.
For 49 years, our history has been rooted in commitment to quality improvement for organizations — and quality of life for the people they serve.
We began as Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care in 1973 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore as one of the country’s first quality review organizations for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Through the decades, we created entities that became nationally known, including Delmarva Foundation, Health Integrity, and Quality Health Strategies.
Today, we’ve brought together these extensive resources and the expertise of more than 500 professionals under one name — Qlarant — serving some of our nation’s most important programs in health, human services, government and insurance & financial services.
Our team has a strong commitment to protecting the integrity of national and state health care systems in Medicare, Medicaid, and the private sector. In addition, The Qlarant Foundation issues annual grant awards to various programs that provide programs to underserved communities.
Qlarant offers a broad range of innovative services: we’re proud to deliver our solutions for Quality Improvement; Fraud, Waste, & Abuse; and Data Sciences & Technology. Our Real-time Predictive Modeling and Data Analytics tools sift through billions of claims and public criminal records to detect aberrant trends and alert users for early investigative and audit actions with high accuracy and performance. We also provide quality review programs, auditing, training, and have an in-house call center ready to meet client needs. Visit www.qlarant.com for further information.
We strive to help our clients make the most of opportunities and improve the quality of life for the people they serve. We have the same goals for our own Qlarant team members. By fostering a culture of excellence and commitment, we help ensure that the best people want to be a part of Qlarant, today and tomorrow. Here are some of the tenets we live by, to promote a dynamic team and deliver outstanding results:
• Diversity of expertise: By creating a diverse team with a wide range of experience and backgrounds, we are stronger and better prepared to face challenges and find success.
