To stimulate EHR adoption among ambulatory practices, Quest Diagnostics is taking its Care360 EHR solution directly to practice locations – allowing physicians and their staff to better understand the benefits and impact to their practice prior to implementing an EHR.

The Care360 EHR Road Test tour will provide healthcare professionals with a live, interactive demonstration of Care360 EHR software and the opportunity to learn from industry experts about EHR benefits for physicians, patients and other healthcare practitioners.

Featuring a state-of-the-art, 38-foot tour bus equipped with learning stations, the tour will provide visitors with insights on EHR features and functionality, including Clinical Decision Support (CDS), ePrescribing, secure messaging and Care360 EHR iPad® and iPhone® applications. Physicians will learn how they can access Care360 EHR at home, in the office, or at the hospital using the latest mobile devices and explore technology that can enable "virtual office visits" for their patients.

"Having access to complete patient data at the time of care is the most important feature of an EHR because it allows physicians to make more informed decisions and improves the coordination of care by securely sharing patient information with other care providers," said Richard A. Mahoney, vice president of healthcare information solutions for Quest Diagnostics and president of its healthcare IT subsidiary, MedPlus. "Our Care360 suite of products was developed for physicians by physicians, and we have more than 165,000 enrolled physicians using Care360.  We have been enhancing the Care360 platform for more than eight years and understand the importance of easy adoption at a pace that does not negatively impact patient visits or office workflow."

The Care360 EHR Road Test bus tour is planned to visit the following cities: Houston, TX; Dallas, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Tampa, FL; Miami, FL; Raleigh, NC; Fairfax, VA; Baltimore, MD; Philadelphia, PA, and New York, NY.

Physicians and hospital executives can view the current tour schedule or request a bus tour visit at

According to experts, adoption of Electronic Health Records is expected to accelerate as federal incentive programs make healthcare providers eligible to receive up to $44,000 over five years for successful implementation of a qualified EHR and demonstration of using the EHR in a meaningful way.
