Quest Diagnostics announced the launch of QuestDirect, a consumer-initiated testing service that empowers patients to manage and take control of their healthcare by ordering health and wellness lab testing from the convenience of their home.
QuestDirect, the latest in a series of consumer offerings from Quest Diagnostics, can be accessed through the recently refreshed MyQuest, Quest’s patient platform used by six million people or by visiting: QuestDiagnostics.com/QuestDirect
Available in 48 states, consumers can get the diagnostic information they need to stay healthy in three steps. QuestDirect’s 35 test packages include general health, men’s and women’s health, digestive health, heart health, infectious disease, and sexually transmitted disease testing.
To order, consumers can visit the QuestDirect website to conveniently shop online and choose their own lab tests. Independent physicians will provide oversight and, if appropriate, order the testing. Consumers can make an appointment online to visit one of Quest’s 2,200 patient service centers. Results are typically available within a week and can be accessed through MyQuest, where they can be shared with a consumer’s own doctor, or a with a family member through the new “My Circle” feature that allows approved family members and other users to connect through MyQuest.
