Meditab Software announced today that its Intelligent Medical Software (IMS), is certified as a Gold Health IT Quality Solution by Quest Diagnostics under its Health IT Quality Solutions Program (the "Program").
Quest Diagnostics created the Health IT Quality Solutions Program to work together with electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical technology vendors toward improved clinical and operational quality to the benefit of mutual customers. The Program has the goal of maximizing data quality and data and business process interoperability between Quest Diagnostics and select EHR solutions.
As a certified Health IT Quality Solution, Meditab IMS has been deemed by Quest Diagnostics to meet or exceed advanced industry standards and provide a streamlined, interoperable solution with Quest Diagnostics regarding lab orders and results. This certification demonstrates Meditab's commitment to quality and leadership within the health IT industry.
"We are very proud of our interface and development teams for receiving this recognition by a key partner," stated Mike Patel, CEO of Meditab Software Inc. "We knew how much hard work and dedication was necessary to achieve the Gold Tier and were eager to undertake the challenge."
To be eligible for the Program, an EHR solution must have an approved and commercially viable interface to Quest Diagnostics web services Data Exchange Network, 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 providers 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. "Their focus on quality lab interoperability validates Meditab's leadership in the marketplace," he continued.
