As a certified Health IT Quality Solution, ADS and MedicsDocAssistant have been recognized by Quest Diagnostics as meeting or exceeding advanced industry standards for health IT quality and for providing a streamlined, interoperable solution that enables secure clinical laboratory ordering and results reporting through Quest Diagnostics connectivity solutions.
Quest Diagnostics created the Health IT Quality Solutions Program to collaborate with providers of electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical technologies to achieve optimized levels of clinical and operational quality for the benefit of physician practices, hospitals and integrated delivery networks. The Program is designed to maximize data quality and data and business process interoperability between Quest Diagnostics and select EHR solutions that meet Quest's high standards.
David Barzillai, President of ADS, said, "We take pride in working with Quest Diagnostics and in being able to have our MedicsDocAssistant EHR attain certification as a Quest Diagnostics Silver Quality Solution. In addition to that, MedicsDocAssistant v. 7.0 is certified as a complete EHR for Stage 2 Meaningful Use, and excellent for a wide range of primary care and specialty practices of any size."
To be eligible for the Program, an EHR solution must have an approved and commercially viable interface to Quest Diagnostics web services Data Exchange Service which processes both lab orders and results.
An EHR solution can then qualify for one of three certification tiers-Silver, Gold, or Platinum-by meeting an increasingly stringent and comprehensive set of criteria related to EHR solution functional capabilities, implementation processes, and other mutually-beneficial business activity.
"Certified vendors have clearly demonstrated their commitment to helping healthcare providers use technology at the highest levels of quality and process excellence in order to meet a growing set of challenges relating to information technology, regulatory requirements, and industry demands," said Keith C. Drake, Ph.D., Quality Solutions Program Executive, Quest Diagnostics. The focus of ADS on quality and lab interoperability validates their leadership in the marketplace."
