Quest Diagnostics CMO Jon Cohen discusses new Gazelle mobile app

Leading lab company Quest Diagnostics just released the Gazelle app for iPhone and Blackberry, which enables people to see, store, and share their Quest lab results. Quest will provide patients with access to their results 48 hours after releasing them to the ordering physician –at least in the 33 states and DC where it’s legal to do so. Patients who want to fax or email lab results to another doctor can do so from within Gazelle. They can also perform other typical personal health record tasks.

Quest hopes Gazelle will differentiate the company from other labs and advance its goals of patient centricity, quality of care, and transparency.

In this podcast interview, Quest Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jon Cohen provides the rationale for Gazelle and details on how it works.
