Quanum™ is a new brand that reflects how Quest Diagnostics helps people analyze, connect and engage with healthcare information technology to deliver better patient care.

"As the leader in diagnostic information services, we are in a unique position to connect patients, providers, payers and ACOs with actionable insights based on lab, clinical, quality, claims and other health data," said Steve Rusckowski, president and CEO, Quest Diagnostics. "Our Quanum suite of HIT solutions reflects this new way of thinking about Quest and our broader ability to harness insights and technology to deliver better healthcare.  Quest's national connectivity, big data, technology and clinical expertise uniquely position us to provide the kinds of technology solutions that will improve quality, lower costs, engage patients and optimize financial performance."

Quanum includes a suite of healthcare information technology and analytics tools that allow patients, private and public payers, ACOs, large health systems and clinicians to analyze, connect and engage, improving quality and health outcomes. The suite features Data Diagnostics™, a real-time point of care analytics technology that Quest introduced in late 2015 with Inovalon, a leading technology company providing advanced, cloud-based data analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry. The two companies will showcase Data Diagnostics with live demonstrations and an educational session (Wednesday, March 2 at 2:30 pm PT) at the conference.

"These include Quest's ability to generate insights from our industry-leading dataset of 20 billion test results as well as connectivity with 400 EHRs and about half of the physicians and hospitals in the U.S. Quanum solutions are infused with our deep experience in healthcare, enabling patients, providers and payers to act on data-driven insights to improve outcomes and lower costs.

"From the patient seeking to understand her health records to the ACO executive who wants to manage a population more effectively, our Quanum solutions help people take actions leading to healthier lives," Ms. Fonseca said.
