    Easton, MD. July 12, 2022 —Qlarant Inc., a national company offering healthcare solutions and tech-enabled services, announced today the formation of Qlarant Capital, a for-profit corporate venture capital arm of the parent company Qlarant, Inc.    

     

    Qlarant Capital is led by Qlarant Inc. CEO Dr. Ron Forsythe, Jr. along with other C-suite executives, many of whom are former founders/operators of successful technology companies and have expertise in healthcare programs, product development, data science, machine learning engineering, and corporate operations.

     

    “We aim to bring meaningful business relationships to our portfolio companies and are committed to help them achieve best possible growth” says Holly Pu, Vice President of New Product Development. “Since 1973, Qlarant’s stellar reputation has created relationships and partnerships across many facets of healthcare, from government to private industry. We can provide entrepreneurs with access to expertise and insights, and help fill gaps in capabilities.”

     

    Founded in 1973, Qlarant began as a Professional Standards Review Organization (PSRO) on the Eastern Shore of Maryland—specifically to monitor healthcare services covered by federal and state programs. Building on its long history of expertise and experience in healthcare programs, Qlarant expanded from a small regional company to a national organization responsible for ensuring the effectiveness and integrity of some of the nation’s most important public services.

     

     “With our 50 years’ experience in the healthcare and technology industries, launching Qlarant Capital is a natural extension of our core business,” said Qlarant CEO Ron Forsythe, Jr, PhD. “We are excited to bring our capital and expertise to selected early stage start-ups and to support them building a bright future.
