Quest Diagnostics to Present Interoperability Solutions for Health Systems at HIMSS 2014
"Quest serves about half of the physicians and hospitals in the U.S., providing clinicians with diagnostic insights from nearly half a million patient encounters each day. Few organizations have our experience creating secure, large-scale, interoperable networks that facilitate the exchange of health information and transform it into insights for improving health," said
At its exhibit, Quest will feature several health IT products and services, including:
- The Care360™ suite of interoperable electronic health record and connectivity products, used by more than 300,000 physicians in
the United States.
- Quest's nine-time award winning ChartMaxx™ enterprise-content management solution, certified for Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use. More than 170 hospitals and health systems use ChartMaxx for secure data and workflow management. ChartMaxx was recently named – for the 9th time -- top
KLASaward winner in its category.
- Quest's patient health portal and mobile solution app Gazelle™, which empowers approximately one million users with access to their health records and promotes better health with exchange of diagnostics insights.
- Population health analytics, based on Quest Diagnostics Health Trends™, the largest private clinical database of laboratory data from Quest's more than 1.5 billion patient encounters.
During the three-day event, Quest will hold a series of educational "Tech Talks" by executives and industry thought leaders to help HIMSS attendees learn about advances in technology and information management that are helping Quest's customers deliver better care and value across care settings.
They will also discuss the implications for hospitals, physicians and other providers of a new federal rule that gives patients the ability to directly access their lab results nationally. Prior to the rule, patients in many states were required to request results from a designated healthcare provider rather than directly from the performing laboratory.
