Quest Diagnostics & Inovalon launch real-time patient-specific data analyses


Quest Diagnostics, a provider of diagnostic information services, and Inovalon, a technology company, have launched Data Diagnostics, a suite of hundreds of real-time patient-specific data analyses.

Clinicians can order these individually, on demand at the point of care within their existing workflow to identify and address gaps in quality, risk, utilization and medical history insights. 

The solution supports the healthcare industry's transition from volume- to value-based healthcare by providing actionable insight to improve clinical and quality outcomes as well as financial performance for practices, health plans, ACOs, hospitals and other providers across the healthcare community in real time.

The solution draws on two of the world's largest datasets of clinical, claims, quality and laboratory data, including Quest's 20 billion clinical laboratory test results and Inovalon's clinical datasets on more than 123 million patients. 

Data Diagnostics is also unique for providing seamless integration within Quest's Care360 and EHR lab ordering and connectivity platform serving approximately half of the physicians and hospitals in the United States. 

This integration means physicians can readily order and access Data Diagnostics reports within their existing clinical workflow, a functionality that is key to bringing the power of big data to the point of care in real time.  

Powered by Inovalon's sophisticated large-scale data interconnectivity and analytical platform, Data Diagnostics allow clinicians to order advanced analytics for their patients on-demand and, within seconds, receive results, for informed decision making during the patient encounter. 

Areas of focus will include several categories designed to assist health plans, accountable care organizations (ACOs), hospitals, integrated healthcare delivery systems, provider organizations, and individual physicians to achieve strong clinical and quality outcomes, utilization efficiency, and overall financial performance.

"Quest and Inovalon share a commitment to empower insights leading to actions that create healthier lives," said Steve Rusckowski, president and chief executive officer (CEO), Quest Diagnostics. 

"This solution is a game-changer for healthcare. Our collaboration with Inovalon also demonstrates how we are executing on our long-term strategy to generate value and differentiation from our data assets as well as our national scale and information technology."
