Healthcare IT News (5/15, Hardy) reported that, "through a joint effort by Quest Diagnostics and Microsoft HealthVault, patients and physicians can now share diagnostic laboratory test results online." Physicians "who use Care360, a patient-centric portal from…Quest Diagnostics, can transfer test results in a HIPAA-compliant format to a protected account per patient request." Meanwhile, "patients will be able to use this account to view past and present diagnostic laboratory records from their physicians." According to David Cerino, general manager of consumer health, Microsoft Health Solutions Group, "Lab results are one piece of the puzzle necessary to give people a complete picture of their health, which we are now able to deliver securely through the connection between Quest Diagnostics and HealthVault."
