Quest Diagnostics has introduced a new version of company’s mobile health platform Gazelle that is compatible with Google Android smartphone operating system.

Quest Diagnostics said it has equipped the latest release of Gazelle with improved information sharing capabilities for email and fax.

Based on user suggestions, Gazelle allows adding contact information for multiple pharmacies and insurance companies in a single account.

The upgraded version of Quest Diagnostics’ mobile health platform enables patients across the 33 states and the District of Columbia to see, store and share their vital health information related to laboratory tests directly on their smartphone while on the go.

It also features a mobile appointment scheduling application that allows patients to either enter their zip code to find a local Quest Diagnostics location, or to use the smartphone’s GPS capability, which automatically identifies the patient’s current location and displays the next available appointment times at the closest Quest Diagnostics locations.

Gazelle was originally introduced in October 2010 for the Apple iPhone and BlackBerry platforms.
