Quest Diagnostics India today won the award for Innovative Use of Technology by a Diagnostic Service Provider at the Assocham National Summit on ICT in Healthcare held in New Delhi. The award was conferred by Shri Lov Verma, Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
Pathology testing influences almost 70% of all clinical decisions. However in India, Pathology testing contributes to only 2% of the healthcare market reflecting an under penetration/utilization of pathology testing in India. Clinicians confidence in the accuracy and quality of laboratory testing needs to be reinforced by using various technology tools to improve Quality. This award is recognition of the various technological innovations that Quest Diagnostics India has implemented to minimize pre analytical & process errors to enhance accuracy of testing & provide better diagnostic insights to all its patients.
Sharing his thoughts at this special occasion, Mr. Mukul Bagga, Managing Director, Quest Diagnostics India said This award is a valuable acknowledgement of our constant endeavor to instill new technological capabilities to deliver enhanced diagnostics insights to all our patients. Being awarded by a highly reputed industry body such as Assocham is extremely gratifying. At Quest we have one of the most sophisticated Laboratory Information Management Systems and are particularly proud of being one of the pioneers in the field of digital pathology to benefit cancer patients. These coupled with our patient & physician portal Quest4Health.com empowers us to deliver high quality healthcare outcomes via optimum use of technology.
