Washington, DC, July 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Leapfrog Group CEO Leah Binder will be the keynote speaker at the Annual User Group Conferences of Quantros, a leading healthcare software and services provider of data management, decision support analytics, and clinical business intelligence solutions.

In April, the Leapfrog Group selected Quantros to service and administer the online Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The Survey annually collects safety, quality, and efficiency data from over 1,200 hospitals across the country and then publicly reports results online.

In 2009, Binder was 28th on Modern Healthcare magazine’s list of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare.

Before joining Leapfrog, Binder worked as a vice president at a rural hospital network. She also was a senior policy advisor for the Office of New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Binder has a BA from Brandeis University and two masters’ degrees from the University of Pennsylvania.

“We’re honored to have someone of Leah’s caliber serve as keynote speaker,” said Sanjaya Kumar, MD, President and CEO of Quantros.

This year, Quantros will hold four regional user conferences at these locations:
- New Orleans, September 13-14
- Reston, VA, September 15-16
