At Quest Diagnostics, we like to say we’re more than a lab; instead, we are a diagnostic information services provider. That’s because while most people think of Quest as the go-to source of laboratory testing, Quest has developed industry-leading healthcare IT solutions along with methods of harnessing insights from our vast lab data set – and a powerful connectivity infrastructure to deliver solutions directly into the workflow of providers. Through our Quanum Solutions portfolio, we are delivering health technology and data analytics offerings that help advance quality, outcomes, patient engagement and financial performance across healthcare.
The Quanum Solutions portfolio was on full display at the 2018 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS18), which took place in Las Vegas March 5-9, 2018, bringing together 45,000+ professionals from around the world to discuss the latest trends and learn about products in Health IT that are disrupting and improving healthcare.
Some highlights from the Quanum Solutions portfolio include the award winning ChartMaxx, claiming the number one spot in the Document Management and Imaging category from KLAS. Additionally, Quanum EHR, Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management, were also on display, as well as Quanum Lab Utilization and Data Diagnostics. These technology solutions are designed to help providers, health plans and other organizations analyze and contextualize information as well as connect and engage people across healthcare, for improved clinical, administrative and financial performance.
Addressing Value Based Care
Quest entered the Health IT space to address gaps in care it is uniquely positioned to fulfill. One of these is lack of tools and actionable insights to help deliver value-based care. In 2017, Quest published results of a survey it commissioned that showed that most health plan executives and physicians believe the system is too complex and physicians do not have the tools needed to fulfill value-based care in which payment is made for quality versus quantity of services. Our Quanum Solutions are connected to more than 650 EHR interfaces and accessible to one in two physicians, for broad access. And they provide mechanisms for population health analysis, based on lab and other data, to guide clinical care and quality scoring under value-based care models.
ChartMaxx allows health systems to improve the sharing and management of graphic-rich data across the system and is a ten-time KLAS award winner.
As Quest continues to build its reputation in innovation in health IT and data analytics, the company hopes to help all parties in healthcare – from physicians and patients to hospital administrators and ACOs – access insights from data to deliver improved patient care– and better financial performance
