Quest Diagnostics Launches 30-Day Ambulatory EHR Implementation Guarantee for Hospitals and IDNs
Feb 24, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Quest Diagnostics Inc., a provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, launched at HIMSS a 30-day electronic health record (EHR) implementation guarantee for hospitals looking to enable bi-directional data exchange with their ambulatory physicians through its Care360 EHR web-based solution.
According to the Company, this offer provides hospitals with an opportunity to accelerate the development of virtual provider networks connecting ambulatory physicians with the hospital and other care providers in the care continuum. With health care reform and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), it is critical for hospitals to assemble networks with a sufficient number of physician providers, and with Care360 EHR, they have an opportunity to get their physicians fully adopted and utilizing a certified EHR in 30 days.
"Hospitals have historically been plagued with slow implementation of EHRs among their ambulatory physician practices resulting in costly downtime, loss of revenue and a lack of care coordination across the healthcare continuum," says Richard A. Mahoney, vice president of Healthcare Information Solutions for Quest Diagnostics, and president of its healthcare IT subsidiary MedPlus. "Our robust Care360 EHR with bi-directional Data Exchange allows hospitals of any size to accelerate their competitive advantage by joining the existing Care360 network of more than 200,000 physicians in 80,000 offices and have their physicians up, connected, and fully trained in 30 days. That is our guarantee."
With the Care360 30-day guarantee, hospitals can expand their referral networks and connect to physicians, while allowing physicians to complete a range of patient-care-centered clinical tasks at the point of care. The Care360 EHR offers hospitals and physicians a solution that streamlines efficiencies while improving the quality of patient care.
"We're extremely confident in our 30-day offer because we have a robust cloud-based IT solution and a national team of IT experts that can provide quick and seamless implementation. In addition, one third of ambulatory physicians in the country already have experience using our base product so adoption is seamless," added Mahoney.
