Quest Diagnostics, a provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, has introduced Care360 EHR (Electronic Health Record), using its growing base of 150,000 connected physicians.
Care360 EHR helps physicians to simply embrace the benefits of digital healthcare without large capital costs or disruption to office workflow. It includes features such as patient demographics, clinical notes, problem lists, medications, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data and radiology reports. It can generate a complete record of a clinical patient encounter, and automate and streamline the clinician’s workflow.
Physician practices can transition from paper to electronic records over time, starting with Care360 Labs and Meds, with the option of Care360 ePrescribing, then moving to Care360 EHR when the practice is ready. As the Care360 EHR is completely Web-based, the implementation timeline and the total cost of ownership is reduced.
Richard Mahoney, vice president of Healthcare Information Solutions and president of MedPlus healthcare information technology subsidiary at Quest Diagnostics, said: “Quest Diagnostics is making broadly available a Web-based EHR that helps physicians embrace digital healthcare one step at a time, connect easily with their peers on patient care, and achieve meaningful use that allows them to qualify for government incentives.
“We value the longstanding trust physicians have in our company, and we are proud to answer physicians’ needs with a modular technology that will truly help drive meaningful improvements in quality of care.”
