Title Sponsor Spotlight - Quest Diagnostics

Quest Diagnostics is far more than a lab. We are a driving force behind the innovations and solutions you need to help you stay ahead of the curve and continue to deliver quality care.

Quest empowers healthcare leaders to take action to improve health outcomes.  Derived from the world’s largest database of clinical lab results, our diagnostic insights reveal new avenues to identify and treat disease, inspire healthy behaviors and improve healthcare management.  We serve half of the physicians and hospitals in the United States.

Quest Diagnostics offers a variety of tools and services that can be customized and easily integrated into your existing business model, so you can have timely access to the information and insights you need to optimize your business. 

To better understand your patient population, Quest offers Population Lab Insights. This tool can help you understand your clinical risk profile and set population health goals for your organization. Then, to stay the course, Quest can track laboratory outcomes and identify patients whose care plan deviates from laboratory best practices.

Quest Diagnostics and Innovator have partnered to offer the cloud-based health analytics platform, Data Diagnostics™, to aggregate comprehensive patient healthcare information on demand and put actionable insights directly into the hands of decision-makers. Armed with insight, organizations can avoid test duplication and unnecessary procedures and more quickly set a course for effective patient treatment at the point of care.

With laboratory tests guiding more than 70% of all medical decisions, improvements in appropriate test selection in compliance with evidence-based guidelines have the power to radically improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

With Lab Utilization Insights, you benefit from powerful reporting. Run on-demand test utilization reports and drill down to provider-level detail, as well as access monthly billing data. Or, receive an expert medical consultation to review your utilization patterns and improvement recommendations based on industry guidelines

Quest gives you up-to-date information you can use right away to effect positive change for your organization. We offer onsite laboratory-management solutions that provide you with the information, personnel, materials, and resources you need to run more cost-efficiently.

We offer the industry’s most comprehensive menu of esoteric tests to meet the variety of your complex testing needs in a location close to you.

With wide-ranging medical expertise and data, Quest employs nearly 700 MDs/PhDs who are thought leaders and innovators within their respective fields of medicine. We offer consultative services on test utilization and interpretation across medical disciplines to ensure that your diagnostic needs are met.

For the patient, Quest offers services designed to help create a seamless health system that provides the continuity of care your patients need.  These include patient-engagement tools and connectivity tools that are established using the extensive national infrastructure that Quest maintains.

Quest Diagnostics can be found across the nation and locally. With over 2,000 employees in our “268,000 square foot” laboratory located in Lenexa, KS, Quest Diagnostics helps deliver quality healthcare to Kansas City.
