Quest

A JAMA study found that low-value diagnostic tests are common in inpatient settings, and machine learning systems can be used to identify those tests and reduce their overutilization.

The service uses Hc1's machine learning technology to collect and analyze lab data, allowing systems to identify areas where usage is inappropriate or inefficient.

While microbiology has traditionally relied heavily on manual processes, most workflows can now be automated, and AI tools promise to streamline it further.

The company recently launched an automated microbiology system in its Marlborough, Massachusetts laboratory using instruments from automation firm COPAN.

The lab beat the consensus Wall Street estimate on the top and bottom line, and maintained its revenue and adjusted EPS guidance for full-year 2019.

Quest will provide CHS of Long Island with lab testing as well as management of lab equipment, supplies, and procurement processes.

Clinical Pathology Laboratories said information on 2.2 million patients had been exposed in the same data breach that impacted millions of Quest and LabCorp patients.

Quest has made a strategic investment of an undisclosed amount in Sharecare, and Sharecare has named Quest its preferred laboratory partner.
