Mission Critical AJAX: Making Test Ordering Easier and Faster at Quest Diagnostics

David Rapperport and Rob Tweed's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

Quest Diagnostics is the leading provider of diagnostic testing, offering access to its services through its national network of laboratories and patient service centers. Quest's Care360 Web-based lab ordering system is relied upon by tens of thousands of customers throughout the USA.

In order to address the demands of customers for better speed and efficiency during the complex ordering process, Quest has now re-engineered the user interface using AJAX techniques.

This presentation will focus on why and how AJAX met Quest’s demanding business and technical requirements, and will demonstrate how their chosen technology, eXtc Web Developer, allowed the project to be delivered within a very short timeframe, with a small team, and without disrupting their existing service.

Speaker Bios: David is the lead application architect for the Care360 Laboratory Orders & Results internet application for MedPlus, Quest Diagnostics' healthcare information technology subsidiary. The Care360 solution streamlines the process of ordering lab tests. David maintains 18 years of professional IT experience with a primary focus in the Healthcare sector. He holds a Masters in information technology management from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Rob Tweed is a director and co-founder of M/Gateway Developments Ltd, a UK company specializing in web, internet and integration technologies since 1996. He has assisted companies worldwide to develop enterprise-scale web applications and is the developer of the eXtc Web Developer web development and AJAX framework.

Rob's extensive IT experience prior to setting up M/Gateway Developments began as an application developer at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. In 1990 he joined Touche Ross Management Consultants in London where, amongst many other IT projects, was, for 4 years, a lead consultant in the UK Dept of Health's NHS-wide Networking project, one of the world's largest networking projects.
