Madison, N.J.-based Quest Diagnostics’ health information technology subsidiary MedPlus and Palo Alto, Calif.-based HP announced they are partnering to facilitate and simplify electronic health record (EHR) adoption for physician practices nationwide.

Quest Diagnostics’ Web-based Care360 EHR software and services coupled with HP hardware, services and financing, bring a unique offering to physicians. A key part of this relationship is offering preconfigured bundles designed to enable physicians to leverage their technology investment for faster access to patient information and improved office efficiency. Physicians can receive a personalized onsite assessment of both their technical environment and practice workflow to better understand their unique practice needs.

To help educate physicians on EHRs and meaningful use, Quest Diagnostics and HP will launch a nationwide tour in Baltimore, Md., on October 28. Additional cities and dates will be announced shortly.

HealthDynamix, the healthcare division of PC Mall and an HP PartnerONE Healthcare Elite Partner, will deliver the solution, providing hardware implementation and support services across the United States.
