Quest Diagnostics awarded laboratory stewardship platform and services agreement with Premier 

December 2, 2022 – Quest Diagnostics has been awarded a group purchasing agreement for its laboratory stewardship solution with Premier Inc., a leading healthcare improvement company uniting an alliance of hospitals, health systems and providers. 

The new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier to access Quest’s laboratory stewardship solutions, including Quest® Lab Stewardship™ Enterprise powered by hc1®. The collaboration includes a streamlined, easy-to-use process designed to expedite access and integration of the solution, alleviating the traditional request for proposal (RFP) and negotiation process. 

All Premier members, whether they have existing contracts for lab services with Quest Diagnostics or not, can benefit from the new Quest-Premier offering. Quest Lab Stewardship Enterprise is the only laboratory stewardship solution available for purchase through Premier. 

Quest Lab Stewardship Enterprise is a data and analytics platform combined with advisory services designed to provide healthcare organizations access to insights from aggregated deidentified testing data. This platform can track trends in order volume, identify areas for clinical and operational improvement, give insights into care variation, identify gaps in care, provide network insight, measure the results of interventions and discover cost-savings opportunities. In addition, the real-time analytics platform is a secure cloud-based application accessible to an entire organization. With these powerful, actionable insights, the laboratory can move from a transactional cost center to a strategic asset in the transition to high value care.
