WISHIN partners with Quest Diagnostics to enhance lab results delivery
The Wisconsin Statewide Health Information Network (WISHIN) is pleased to announce that it has
entered into an agreement with Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX), the world’s leading provider of
diagnostic information services, to deliver laboratory result data to the WISHIN Pulse community health record and directly into the electronic health record (EHR) systems of organizations participating with WISHIN.
Quest Diagnostics provides medical testing and services through a national network of clinical and specialty laboratories. Derived from the world’s largest database of clinical lab results, Quest’s diagnostic insights reveal new avenues to identify and treat disease, inspire healthy behaviors, and improve health care management. Quest annually serves one in three adult Americans and more than half the physicians and hospitals in the United States, and their 46,000 employees understand that, in the right hands and with the right context, its diagnostic insights can inspire actions that transform lives.
“Quest and WISHIN each exist to enhance patient care, and this new agreement advances the goals of each organization,” said Joe Kachelski, CEO of WISHIN. “This partnership can facilitate the delivery of lab results into WISHIN Pulse as well as into an ordering provider’s EHR. This means getting results faster and allowing patient-care decisions to be made sooner. It also reduces time and resources spent collecting results from fax or courier and re-entering them into an EHR.”
