July 14, 2015
TUCSON, Ariz. – Sunquest Information Systems announced a new strategic partnership with TriCore Reference Laboratories to jointly develop state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory software to support population health, precision medicine and integration pathology.
Development efforts will include new technologies for improved data analytics in connected, multi-organization environments. According to a recent report, 65 percent of hospitals report that their analytics spending will increase to support population health and other vital hospital priorities.
“Sunquest strives to create solutions that enable labs to strategically align with key hospital initiatives,” said Manish Muzumdar, Sunquest’s senior vice president of product development. “Our partnership with TriCore perfectly supports our determination to stay on the cutting edge and deliver exceptional software.”
Prior to the Sunquest partnership, TriCore merged with Rhodes Group to form the foundation of their laboratory platform. Sunquest’s strategy matched their needs for a partner to further their vision for technology.
“Medical laboratories drive more than 80 percent of clinical decisions, and now, with Sunquest we can truly shape how medicine is delivered. As a Sunquest laboratory client for more than fifteen years, we know that Sunquest has always had great solutions, but now they have a new level of energy and a commitment to innovation to match,” said Khosrow, R. Shotorbani, MTASCP, president and chief executive officer, TriCore Reference Laboratories.
The co-developed solutions will be leveraged in one of TriCore's reference laboratories that will serve as their innovation center for commercial-grade diagnostic methodologies, operations and
technology. TriCore will attend the Sunquest User Group Conference, July 13-17, to showcase the benefits of the new partnership.
