Quest Diagnostics Care360™ Named Top e-Prescribing Platform by Black Book Rankings

MADISON, N.J., Dec. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Quest Diagnostics Incorporated (NYSE: DGX), the world's leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, announced that Care360™, the company's electronic health platform, has been named the leading stand-alone e-Prescribing software system by Black Book Rankings, a leading source for accurate, impartial customer satisfaction surveys in the services and software industries.

Black Book Rankings surveyed over 70,000 healthcare IT and records professionals, physician practice administrators and hospital leaders over a four month period to provide prospective buyers of e-Prescribing software with a comprehensive comparison of the industry's top performing vendors.

According to the report, e-Prescribing technology is defined as "a prescriber's ability to electronically send an accurate, error free and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point of patient care."   Electronic prescriptions have been widely recognized as playing a key role in reducing medical errors and improving the quality of patient care.

According to Black Book Rankings, Quest Diagnostics Care360™ ranked first in eleven of eighteen key performance categories for e-Prescribing, including Client Satisfaction, Overall Vendor Preference and First Line User Recommendations, Percentage of Users on Track to Meet Meaningful Use, Reliability, Support and Customer Care, and Best of Breed Technology, among others.
