SCHAUMBURG, Ill., June 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quadrant 4 System Corporation (QFOR) ("Quadrant 4" or the "Company") announces its breakthrough online exchange solution, QHIX Hybrid Exchange™.

The QHIX Hybrid Exchange brings together employers, benefits products, associates/team members, service providers, payroll and banking solutions into a single place. It is a robust administrative eco-system providing sophisticated benefits administration where employers, employees, brokers, and insurance companies come together in an online environment to buy, sell and manage insurance and other benefits-related products. The QHIX Hybrid Exchange™ is unique because it combines the functionality to service the largest group exchanges in addition to serving the exchange needs of a single individual.

HealthSmart Benefit Solutions, Inc., the nation's largest independent Third Party Administrator for healthcare benefits (www.healthsmart.com) was attracted by the versatility of the QHIX Hybrid Exchange™ platform and has begun implementing various back-office components for billing, reconciliation, commission tracking and commission remittance.

Mark Stadler, Chief Marketing Officer at HealthSmart states, "QHIX has proven to be a powerful tool for us, not only to manage our front-end eligibility and enrollment but also our support needs for premium accounting, broker management and commission tracking. We are also excited about how this product will aid us in helping our clients adhere to the rigorous regulations of the Affordable Care Act."

"The development of the QHIX Hybrid Exchange™ is a revolution that eliminates the piecemeal approach to benefits solutions that has plagued the administrators of insurance coverage and the consumers of those health and other insurance coverages," said Robert Steele, President of Quadrant 4 Health, a business unit of Quadrant 4. "Providing our clients with the ability to manage both group and individual products on the same platform is a game changer. Our QHIX Hybrid Exchange™ is an all-in-one innovation that we believe will be the only solution that our clients will ever need," continued Mr. Steele.
