Having only been with Quest Diagnostics for 10 weeks, I’m continually meeting new colleagues. As I get a chance to talk with new folks, I always seem to learn something new. As it turns out, the drug testing business isn’t the only business that operates in our Quest Diagnostics office in Lenexa, Kansas. There are actually four unique businesses – Employer Solutions, ExamOne, Wellness and Clinical. Last week, I had the opportunity to meet with Rick Kingcade, Business Development & Strategic Planning Director for the ExamOne business. ExamOne is a leader in risk assessment testing for life insurance companies and offers a comprehensive suite of services to the insurance industry including laboratory testing, paramedical exams, electronic data collection, medical records retrieval and more. Here are a few of ExamOne’s products which set them apart from other paramedical exam companies:
- Inside Look offers online life insurance applicants access to their laboratory test results, descriptions of the tests performed and the opportunity to learn more about their health status.
- Risk IQ is the industry’s first tool to assess an applicant’s risk by analyzing laboratory results and demographic data. Risk IQ draws from more than 140 different variables to provide an individualized score that ranks an applicant’s risk for mortality.
- FraudCheck is an automated screening and fraud detection tool designed for underwriting and claims departments. It can be used by underwriters to confirm other sources of information or to point to other areas needing verification.
- ScriptCheck enables the expedited delivery of prescription information for use during the risk assessment or claim investigation process. ScriptCheck uncovers application omissions and identifies cases that need more concentrated risk management resources.
ExamOne has provided a portfolio of services to the insurance industry for more than 40 years, and as such has a great deal of understanding about the needs of life, health and disability insurance providers and their customers. They’ve also got a unique and personal focus in that they’re committed to putting applicant’s first. Visit their website to learn more about Quest Diagnostics’ insurance business – ExamOne.
As a new employee at Quest Diagnostics, there’s hardly a day that goes by that I don’t learn something new about the world of drug testing. Like some of you, I have a lot to learn about the industry. During my first year of employment, I’m going to write this weekly column highlighting drug testing procedures, products and processes as I discover them.
