Despite Jim's recent efforts to spin HIPAA into a Quadramed "positive" I remain unclear on specifically how the company is positioned to benefit from the new regs. Anybody have insight into how the stock value might be positively impacted in the coming year as a result of HIPAA? What is the specific value add from which they plan to benefit?
I agree with BlackwatchsReg! With Pendleton at the helm, VantageMed is bound to rocket past Healtheon! This will be the RedHat of healthcare IT! With a 10% share in VantageMed, QMDC's net worth could easily 10X by 2001! Imagine owning 10% of Microsoft, prior to their IPO!
I believe we may be leaving the $4 to $5 lows of October & November. It looks like the market is calculating in the 10%+ ownership of VantageMed by Quad into the getting the stock back in the $7 range. As the deal gets closer to pricing this is probably the only factor keeping Quad at these lofty levels!
Bot-Feeder: Just wanted to let you know that the reply and advice you received from "sprucegooose11" is NOT from "sprucegooseII", the well-known and respected member of the QMDC Board.
Over the past few months, this imposter has been hiding behind knock-offs of other Yahoo ID's, pumping VantageMed and Pendleton. He even replies to his own messages, to create the illusion of a discussion.
please find excerpts from an article i saw about micron electronics. it appears that they have hired a former quad officer as as a technology officer...."Micron Electronics also announced today the appointment of William R. Burns, Jr. to the position of Vice President of Data Center Infrastructure and Operations. Burns brings more than 15 years of engineering and networking infrastructure experience to Micron Electronics and its hosting operations.
"William Burns brings the years of technology operations experience necessary to drive our data center operations and manage the explosive growth in our hosting business," said Smith.
Most recently, Burns served as Senior Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Technology Officer at QuadraMed Corporation. "
did this fellow leave the company recently? if he was a valued employee and was lured away to another company, i think that would be noteworthy. you hate to see an information company lose its chief technology officer.
Wouldn't it be more important if he left for other reasons? If lured by $, options, future potential at Micron, that's one thing, if he left because he was dissatisfied with his position or future at Quad, that's another.
Anybody have the inside scoop? Who replaced him at Quad?
