Quest Diagnostics and HP Simplify Electronic Health Records for Physician Practices
Date:10/5/2010

MADISON, N.J., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Quest Diagnostics' (NYSE: DGX) health information technology subsidiary MedPlus and HP today announced they are partnering to facilitate and simplify electronic health record (EHR) adoption for physician practices nationwide.  

Quest Diagnostics' web-based Care360™ EHR software and services coupled with HP hardware, services and financing, bring a unique offering to physicians. A key part of this relationship is offering preconfigured bundles designed to enable physicians to leverage their technology investment for faster access to patient information and improved office efficiency.  Physicians can receive a personalized onsite assessment of both their technical environment and practice workflow to better understand their unique practice needs.

To help educate physicians on EHRs and meaningful use, Quest Diagnostics and HP will launch a nationwide tour in Baltimore, MD on October 28th. Additional cities and dates will be announced shortly.  

HealthDynamix, the healthcare division of PC Mall (Nasdaq: MALL) and an HP PartnerONE Healthcare Elite Partner, will deliver the solution, providing hardware implementation and support services across the United States.

Approximately one third of U.S. physicians—and many of the country's leading hospitals, health plans, and regional health exchanges—currently rely on health care information solutions developed by Quest Diagnostics to document, analyze and monitor diagnostic, prescription and clinical data to provide better patient care. Because Care360 EHR is completely web-based, the only requirement is Internet access, which reduces the time and costs of implementing the solution.  Coupled with HP's network connectivity, physicians can access more secure patient information, from a fixed or mobile Internet browser.

"Combining our Care360 EHR solution with HP's hardware and services creates a comprehensive platform for small to medium-sized physician practices to easily and cost-effectively transition to an EHR system," said Richard A. Mahoney, Quest Diagnostics' vice president of Healthcare Information Solutions and president of its MedPlus healthcare information technology subsidiary. "The joint solution is designed to deliver the tools physicians need to improve overall clinical outcomes and realize the many financial incentives of EHR adoption."  

HP is an industry leader in healthcare technology innovation with tablet PCs, notebooks, desktops, workstations and thin clients, as well as digital signage and smartphones, designed for the rigors of patient care settings. HP's broad product line will be integrated into the Care360 EHR offering to provide customers the flexibility to choose the right product and solution for each unique healthcare environment, making it easy for physicians to buy an EHR solution.

HP will also offer special financing solutions, through HP Financial Services -- the company's leasing and lifecycle asset management services division that provide physician practices monthly payment options prior to receiving financial incentives from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for implementing a qualified EHR.  

"The vision of a completely secure, wired and interoperable electronic healthcare system is rapidly becoming a reality, yet many physicians are struggling to find the optimal balance of hardware and software as they migrate to EHR adoption," said Chris Mertens, vice president of the Healthcare Business in the Personal Systems Group at HP. "Our collaboration with Quest Diagnostics will help medical practices find that optimal balance with a custom solution flexible enough to meet their current and future healthcare IT needs."
