Quest Diagnostics Announces First EHRs Certified Under Laboratory-based Health IT Quality Solutions™ Program

EHRs are increasingly used by physician practices and other healthcare providers in the United States for the management of clinical patient data, including diagnostic data. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 55% of physicians had adopted an EHR in 2011, and half cited being alerted to a critical lab value as a key EHR benefit.

Vendors of EHR and other clinical technology may qualify for its Silver and Gold certification levels under the Quest Diagnostics program by meeting increasingly stringent criteria for capacity, implementation process, and other factors that deliver clinical and operational quality for physician practices that use Quest Diagnostics for clinical laboratory testing. Silver EHR solutions incorporate advanced functionality for processing lab orders and results; Gold EHR solutions provide enhanced implementation processes as well as advanced functionality. At the Program's elite tier, vendors with Platinum EHR solutions enjoy a strategic alignment of technology and operational best practices with Quest Diagnostics.
