More than just a lab




As you navigate the complex healthcare landscape, it is important to have partners you can depend on. At Quest, we are committed to being more than just your lab. In addition to our extensive testing menu of 3,500 routine to highly specialized tests, including genetic and molecular, Quest is leading research and developing solutions that address today's pressing healthcare issues. From medical research and innovation, to member education and connecting with the health community, we are prepared to offer you a robust partnership to help optimize healthcare delivery, reduce costs, and improve the health of your members.

In this edition of "Healthy Insights," learn about two Quest initiatives that can help improve the health of your members. As the healthcare community continues to battle a prescription drug misuse epidemic, Quest Diagnostics is putting 3 million laboratory results to work to help paint a more complete picture of the issue with our recently released Health Trends™ report. Further, we are doing our part to educate members and providers about the danger and prevalence of prescription drug misuse with our Spotlight on Health feature on the opioid epidemic. Quest is also forging a path to increase early detection of cognitive impairment. In August, we launched CogniSense™ a new digital dementia assessment test.The iPad app is designed to 'rethink' the way we approach cognitive health—reducing costs and increasing test access and detection.

As we begin to close out 2016 and look toward the future, the team at Quest remains focused on finding fresh ways to use our medical expertise, data, and resources to boost disease awareness, improve outcomes, and to be more than just your lab.
