Care 360 from MedPlus (Quest Diagnostics) Now Has Ambulatory Web Based EHR – Integrated with Labs and E-Prescribing

Posted Oct 16 2009 10:01pm

Back in July I had the opportunity to chat with Rohit Nayak from MedPlus and at that time he stated that an EHR from MedPlus was on the way, well image it’s here now.  You can use the link below to explore some of the offerings from MedPlus that we discussed.  Care 360 is also involved in many RHIO projects across the US as well.  See the related links below for even more information.

Physicians can also use an iPhone to get patient lab results.  If you want to try out Care 360 e-Prescribing, check out the 6 month trial offer currently available.  Quest Diagnostics works with Personal Health Records, Google Health and HealthVault so patient labs can be accessed by the patient.  If you are a physician you would need to enroll first to allow this to occur. 

Sean Nolan over at HeatlhVault stated that Lab information and data is some of the richest information available today for helping patients gather and populate the information for their PHR. 

Care 360 Lab results online have been available for quite a while and even several years ago when I was still writing my EMR, I wrote an interface to bring the results into my program.  Why deal with paper when all this can be done online and move the next level up.  If labs are ordered online, the patient doesn’t have to worry about losing that slip of paper for the lab order, and gee, stop waiting on snail mail and get your results faster for your patients. 

I have many links on this blog for Quest and MedPlus, just do a search on the second search box and you will find them all.   Be the “informed patient” and “informed MD” and read up and get involved as technology can certainly take much of the leg work out of all the stuff you are doing by chasing paper.  I mention participation, and to relieve yourself of some of the frustrations, take a few minutes and learn about Quest/MedPlus and other technology solutions, you’ll be happy you took the plunge and simplify some of your healthcare tasks.  BD
