Introducing Care360

EmblemHealth is pleased to announce Care360®, a new tool to order lab tests and obtain results from Quest Diagnostics, EmblemHealth's preferred lab for diagnostic testing. To get started, you may enroll at the "Care360" Web site. (Select Quest Diagnostics.) To use this feature, once enrolled, sign in to www.emblemhealth.com and select the "Lab Ordering/Results" link located on the left hand side of the Web page. This link will direct you to Care360's Web site where you can order lab tests through Quest Diagnostics and receive lab results electronically, at any time. This service is free of charge.

A few of the many benefits of Care360 include:

  • Electronic lab ordering and results that eliminate paper documents.
  • Automated features that reduce the risk of human error and simplify routine tasks, such as filing ABNs, checking medical necessity or searching for diagnosis codes.
  • Reports that can be sorted automatically, marked as reviewed, annotated and even shared with outside physicians and patients.
  • Automatic e-mail reminders.
  • 24/7 accessibility through your PC, laptop, iPhone — anywhere you are.
