New Health IT Quality Solutions Program to collaborate with providers of electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical technologies

CompuGroup Medical has announced that CGM LabDAQ LIS has been certified as a Gold Quality Solution by Quest Diagnostics under Quest's Health IT Quality Solutions™ Program (the "Program"). Quest Diagnostics is the world's leading provider of diagnostic information services.

As a certified Health IT Quality Solution, CompuGroup Medical's CGM LabDAQ has 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 such as CGM LabDAQ 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, as well as data and business process interoperability between Quest Diagnostics and select clinical technology solutions that meet Quest's high standards.

"We believe that this certification validates our seamless integration with Quest Diagnostics and solidifies our 15 year progressive and growing partnership," said Jim Kasoff, President, CompuGroup Medical, Laboratory Division.

To be eligible for the Program, a clinical technology solution must have an approved and commercially viable interface to Quest Diagnostics web service's Data Exchange Service, which processes both lab orders and results. It 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 laboratory order and result functionality, 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 CompuGroup Medical on quality and lab interoperability validates their leadership in the marketplace."
