Simplifying complex data

The Healthcare Analytics Solutions portfolio started with dialogue between Quest data scientists and medical directors with researchers in the pharmaceutical industry who were trying to understand large patterns in disease progression, diagnosis, and treatment. Those dialogues now produce rich insights during every stage of therapy development, customized at-scale data sets and analysis used for research and planning of new therapeutic launches, and new ways to look at clinical trial recruitment.

The power of Quest lab data

70% of clinical decisions are made with lab data

Data-driven predictive insights with lab data have the ability to dramatically change how pharmaceutical executives make strategic decisions.  

Quest has relationships with more than 50% of the hospitals and physicians in the US, over 60+ billion data points, and more than 650 active EMR interfaces. When combined, this enables nearly universal test ordering from healthcare providers and high-availability results reporting on almost any health condition. 

Quest has relationships throughout healthcare—pharma, patients, physicians, health plans, and health systems—uniquely positioning us to make the connections needed to drive more effective clinical trials.

Further, our pharma, CRO, and public health customers have invested in clinical data sets that are particularly relevant to their disease focus, which we can integrate with lab data to create new insights into population health.
