Edward Peng, an Alleged Spy For China May Have Ties To ANSI-ANAB’s Oversight Body

U.S. citizen spying for China shines the limelight on ANSI-ANAB Accreditation Board and International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

Washington, D.C. – USA, October 4, 2019 — American Edward Peng was arrested in California for possibly spying for the People’s Republic of China, the Justice Department and FBI announced Monday. Peng was arrested after a sting operation in which he received what he believed to be classified information that was actually provided by a source working for the U.S. government.

According to U.S. Senate candidate Daryl Guberman, CEO of Guberman-PMC (http://www.dguberman.com) Peng’s arrest is an alarming example of China’s vast spy ring throughout the country which has expanded significantly shortly after a Chinese national took over the leadership role of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the oversight body of the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). See https://youtu.be/5iO58SnnDkE

For nearly five years Guberman had been calling for the Feds to investigate the China-led organization (IAF) which is shockingly over-seeing thousands of U.S. corporations as well as numerous government agencies risking the theft of potentially critical data associated with military, diplomatic, technology and national security of the United States. Incorporated in Delaware, the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) is under the leadership of Chinese national Xiao Jianhua.

Guberman said he fears classified information is increasingly at risk due to IAF’s over-sight programs on government agencies as well as its access to commercial technology, intellectual property, and personal data on millions of American citizens through its global network of certification bodies, some of which based in Iran, Palestine and other countries hostile to the United States and its allies, particularly Israel.

As the oversight body for the ANSI-ANAB Accreditation Board, IAF oversees some of America’s largest corporations, including Lockheed Martin, the leading manufacturer of military weapons and equipment. Reportedly, Lockeed Martin employee Lisa Gross was recently caught demanding certification bodies to be “accredited” by China-led IAF in order for a manufacturer to qualify for sub-contracting work with the aerospace giant. Lockheed has long been known for its anti-competitive practices and monopolization.

The 56-year-old Peng, allegedly dropped money and picked up classified information at hotel rooms in Georgia, Ohio, New Jersey, and California. The suspect’s alleged ties to IAF’s Chief Executive Xiao Jianhua is unknown at this time. Jianhua is a native of Beijing and like all Chinese citizens is under control of the Chinese government.

“Through association with ANSI-ANAB, the China-led organization (IAF) likely has access to potentially critical data on U.S. government agencies, including the Department of Commerce (NIST), Homeland Security, and the FBI said Guberman.  He added, “The American people are appalled to learn The FBI’s forensic labs are audited and inspected by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) which is a sitting member of Communist-led IAF.”

Guberman has been dubbed the ‘savior of American quality’ particularly in the manufacturing sector because of his company’s decision to remain independent from the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). Guberman and supporters are fundamentally committed to bring back manufacturing to the United States, and provide quality oversight without interference from foreign-led entities with anti-American interests such as IAF.

In recent years the leadership of ANSI-ANAB reached out to Guberman in attempt to oversee his nationally leading registrar G-PMC, Group (http://www.g-pmc.com). Guberman said he declined the offer because of ANSI-ANAB’s relationship with China-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and its defiance of Israel. Guberman is Jewish and known in the political world for his outspoken pro-American views.

“Undoubtedly, China’s extensive spy network will continue to spread like a cancer across the country as organizations such as IAF are allowed to operate unchecked while our own government turns its back on the American people by allowing foreign-run organizations to over-see quality matters associated with federal contracts, manufacturing, military, technology, food safety, and most importantly national security” said Guberman.

Daryl Guberman Video Tells World How ANSI Board Member Russ Chaney Paid $346,500 Annually for 2 Hours Work Per Week

The lack of ethics of ANSI is on full display and moves beyond the association’s links to hostile to the United State’s interest countries. Guberman-PMC shares in a new YouTube video how one ANSI Board Members makes over $350,000 a year, for not even one full day of work in a week.

New York, NY – USA, September 13, 2019 — Daryl Guberman, CEO and Founder of Quality Consulting firm Guberman-PMC has made it his mission to bring ethics, professionalism and patriotism to the American quality and standards world. This has put him at odds with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for a number of different reasons. The most recent is discussed in his latest YouTube video, where the unethical (if not criminal) “royalty” payments to ANSI Board Member Russ Chaney are explored. The new video is titled “ANSI Board Member Russ Chaney Paid $346,500 Annually for 2 Hours Work Per Week” and has immediately become a hot topic in the world of companies who use Quality and Standards registrars.

“No one can convince a normal, hardworking, American that anyone should make over $345,000 a year for two hours a week work,” commented Guberman, a true authority in the Quality field. “Especially in Quality where there is an expectation to be honest and responsible since the services being provided are so vitally important.”

Even more shockingly, despite the ridiculous amount of money being made by ANSI board members, the companies who turn to them for Quality certifications in the last few years have seen failure after failure. This certainly gives the impression that ANSI is simply in it for the money and not even concerned with doing a good job or appearing to do a good job.

Guberman hopes that by telling the world ANSI’s secrets that this will help break up their near monopoly, something which would do wonders for US companies in both performance and in their security. Another area where ANSI fails due to their close work with Chinese, Arab and other rivals of the United States and Israel.

Guberman-PMC Reveals How ANSI Ripoffs Taxpayers of Millions Using Loopholes to Overpay Board Members

ANSI drops to new low insulting normal working people and those who love America, by paying Board Members outrageous amounts of money for next to no work.

New York, NY – USA, September 9, 2019 — It is an unarguable fact that quality certification association ANSI’s board members make jaw-dropping amounts of money, that they don’t even pay taxes on, working just two hours a week. The association has tried to keep this concealed but Quality Expert Daryl Guberman has done his utmost to raise awareness of these troubling facts. Using YouTube as a platform to continue to break down the long list of issues with ANSI, and why the association is very likely not just unethical when it comes to finances but also a national security threat, Guberman is doing his best to make quality registrars trustworthy again. Guberman’s new video, “How ANSI Ripoffs Taxpayers To Pay Board Members Millions” backs up all these assertions with facts that can be easily confirmed.

“A look at the tax reports for 2016 shows how ANSI gives their board members royalty payments, which are not taxable and amounting to many hundreds of thousands of dollars each for only two hours of work a week,” remarked Guberman. “This is enough to make a person’s skin crawl who cares about America and the quality standards and companies are held to. We can only guess why they aren’t being investigated.”

ANSI are so arrogant people in their inner circle have even openly called the royalty payments they give themselves as “money laundering”. As disturbing as this already is, Guberman also reminds viewers of the new video how deeply entwined ANSI is with China, and a long list of other openly anti-American states and nationals.

 

Guberman, founder and CEO of Quality Certification experts Guberman-PMC, is the complete opposite of ANSI and related efforts like ANAB anf the IAF. Guberman is a proud Jewish-American who supports the President in the need to Make America Great Again and recognizes working with countries who oppose Israel is also a terrible idea for American patriots.  Guberman has led, and will continue to lead, the campaign to educate which Quality Registrars can be trusted and which should be avoided.

Expect the videos from Guberman and Guberman-PMC to stay on schedule as he shares his voice and experience in the field of Quality to a growing audience. Anyone with question or questions, or who would like to bring Guberman-PMC on board for Quality Consulting, is encouraged to contact the firm at any time.

Guberman Submits Offer to U.S. Steel to Drop China-led IAF Oversight Which Links Them to Iran and North Korea

Daryl Guberman of G-PMC, has made it his mission to expose the deep connections between the terror-nation linked International Accreditation Forum and major U.S. businesses. His latest effort was submitting an offer to work with U.S. Steel to give them quality accreditation services from his U.S. firm.

New York, NY, USA, June 25, 2018 — How and from whom a business is certified by carries a huge amount of weight, clearly. Both for ethical and for their own internal security and quality control issues. Few understand this as well as Daryl Guberman, a business leader with over three decades of experience in quality, and seven years at the head of the accreditation organization G-PMC which he founded and leads. In recent months Guberman has exposed numerous foreign-linked accreditation firms, especially the Chinese-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF), as being of a very questionable nature, to put it mildly. Recently, G-PMC celebrated Guberman meeting with leaders from U.S. Steel to present to them the idea of working with the American-based and loyal G-PMC rather than something like the IAF, while having an address in the U.S., is led by a Chinese national, a country with well-known North Korean ties, and a long list of anti-American and ant-Israel nations, like Iran, as signatories. The enthusiasm surrounding the meeting is high.

“We continue to revolutionize quality accreditation methods working hard to deliver the best value we possibly can to our clients to make sure their quality standards are held to the highest level,” remarked Guberman. “But beyond that we feel a strong personal responsibility to make people aware of how many American businesses are, often unintentionally, working with quality accreditation organizations that have terrorist and antisemitic nation ties. In fact one of the leaders in this space the IAF is led by China, a country who has repeatedly spied and hacked American businesses and state organizations. How can an American business work with these types of alliances, and sleep well at night? Our hope is knowing the truth will help them make the right decision in this area.”

To make things even worse a popular accreditation organization active and affiliated with IAF is the Arab Accreditation Cooperation, which includes much more than a handful of nations that celebrate antisemitism with passion. As a Jewish-American business leader Daryl Guberman sees it as a personal responsibility to help shine the spotlight on this potentially dangerous situation to America and American businesses.

The meeting with U.S. Steel went very well, with their representatives being unaware of the IAF’s links and seeming to be ready to break off from them and work with a pro-American, America-based accreditation group like G-PMC instead. Negotiations are ongoing.

G-PMC & ABAC to Meet Ford Motor Company to Discuss Quality, Confidence and Security of the Standards Group They Use

Why would American companies put their trust in quality accreditation organizations led by or containing members of hostile foreign nations? G-PMC and ABAC are doing their best to both raise this question and providing effective solutions to the problem.

New York, NY, USA, June 22, 2018 — Ford Motor Company is a legendary American business that finds itself using quality accreditation groups who have recently been brought to the limelight as having ties to hostile foreign nations. American owned and operated G-PMC & ABAC are presenting their case to Ford showing how they can solve this problem, led by the thirty-year veteran of the industry Daryl Guberman, also well known as a whistleblower who has spent a great amount of time and energy exposing the presence of China, Iran, North Korea, and other dangerous nations running or being members of quality accreditation organizations like the IAF, the International Accreditation Forum, and other accreditation groups.

“As a Jewish-American business owner it makes me sick to think some American companies of the highest stature have been fooled into working with things like the IAF dripping with anti-American and anti-Israel sentiment,” remarked Guberman, with his usual charisma and passion. “It’s an insult both to America and to our industry. We are working hard to reverse this trend and hopefully our meeting with Ford will help inspire them to move in the right direction. All the proof is objective and clear, in black and white.”

G-PMC points towards the IAF and similar groups failure in working with Audi motors which lead to first a series of recalls of 75,000 vehicles and then a 4.8 million car recall only a few years later. G-PMC points the way forward and beyond these kinds of problems, having experience with companies as large as Boeing, excelling in the execution of their quality assistance program.

Guberman continued, “If Ford comes on board with us, a fellow American business, they will send a strong positive message and avoid any potential embarrassment that could come along with working with the Chinese-led, North Korea, and Iran member accreditation groups like the IAF who appear to be both immoral and less than competent. It’s a win for American businesses, our workers, and our nation.”

Daryl Guberman, beyond business, is known to be a passionate supporter of veteran’s causes and campaigner against political corruption. He is deeply considering taking his considerable knowledge and experience and putting to good use in an effort to win a seat in the U.S. Senate in 2020 running as an independent. More news in that area should be available soon.

G-PMC Reveals Shocking Truths About IAF & ANAB Two Certification Organizations with Ties to Anti-American Nations

Is it possible that anti-American and anti-Israel elements have taken over major quality accreditation organizations, like the IAF? Absolutely, according to G-PMC Founder Daryl Guberman it absolutely is and he has not hesitated to provide the objective truth that this is true.

Milwaukee, WI, USA, June 22, 2018 — It’s a sad, but undeniable truth that both America and, the Middle East’s only democracy, Israel, have a large number of nations across the world who consider them either very strong competitors or actual enemies. China, Iran, and Pakistan certainly lead this list. In a series of eye-opening revelations Daryl Guberman, founder of quality certification company G-PMC, has shown that two questionable organizations involved in accreditation, the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) (http://aboac.org/iaf-international-accreditation-forum) and ANAB (The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) are led by Chinese nationals (in the case of the IAF) and are affiliated to Iran, who have threatened both America and Israel with destruction, and over a dozen other nations packed with anti-American and anti-Israel beliefs and histories. Daryl Guberman even has shown that the IAF receives funding from U.S. government sources, in an incredible display of naivety on the part of the U.S. and potentially sinister scheming on the part of the IAF.

Guberman’s video titled “More Revelations Emerge: International Accreditation Forum (IAF) & ANAB Risk To American Interests” can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H9q8WjuvUE

“As an American-Jewish businessman it’s impossible to not care about these issues,” commented Guberman. “Every time an American business gets accredited by the IAF or one of their affiliates they open up all of their internal information to hostile foreign eyes. What good, sane, explanation, can there be for this? An owner may as well hand over the keys to their business and all their passwords to the Chinese and Iranians. This is affecting the aerospace, manufacturing, medical, and many other industries. ISO registrars must be held accountable. We hope sane America businesses who may have unintentionally made this mistake reverse it and turn to an American-based, operated, and loyal firm like our own G-PMC instead.”

G-PMC are experts at securing ISO-9001;2008, 13485, AS9100, and TS16949 certification, as well as ISO-17025 and ISO-14000 compliance and certification. The company is happy to assist clients in all aspects of their QMS (quality management system), along with performing management and audit reviews. All with the goal of increasing quality, productivity, and cutting costs.

Guberman and G-PMC are always pleased to discuss possible needs with new clients and have a resume that includes successful projects operate for small, medium, and large companies, including Boeing.

ISO Extortion: Threats To Silence Guberman Backfire On Accreditation Oppressors

Guberman continues to expose an anti-American accreditation scheme despite threats to silence him.

Milwaukee, WI (USA), August 10th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman, the CEO of G-PMC Group, LLC, the leading independent ISO registrar accredited by the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) has a simple message to the individuals that is threatening him and his company for exposing an international accreditation scheme involving The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). “I won’t be silenced,” said Guberman.

Yesterday, Guberman published a video (https://youtu.be/Mkn11hw2gjs) in response to those that are desperately attempting to restrain him and his company from having the moral and legal right to certify American businesses for ISO certification. In the video, Guberman said he has received harrasing phone calls and threats from anonymous individuals he believes to be profiting from the accreditation racket.

“There are a number of individuals profiting significantly from the accreditation scheme that do not want me to tell the truth about having a choice.” Citing one of his favorite quotes Guberman said, “What the accreditation oppressors need to realize is the truth always rises to the top, just like oil.”

Guberman’s company G-PMC, LLC (http://www.g-pmc.com) specializes in providing complete and fully accredited ISO certification services for businesses that do not want to be certified by a registar belonging to the Chinese-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF) which is under the leadership of Chinese National Xiao Jianhua, according to public records at http://dguberman.com/IAF_tax_report.pdf

Studies show the majority of U.S. manufacturers certified to ISO 9001:2015, AS9100, ISO 13485, ISO/TS 16949, and other standards are unfortunately not aware their registrar belongs to Chinese-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF). In contrast, the only recognized US-based accreditation body that does not belong to Chinese influenced IAF is the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC), which happens to be the fastest growing accreditation body in North America.

Guberman said those profiting from the accreditation scam and attempting to harm his business should realize their strong-arm tactics only motivate him and other businesses to push back and stand against the corruption.

“I’m bringing to light the biggest industrial scam this country has ever seen, so their threats to silence my message only motivates me further to inform and protect the American people, and the thousands of misled businesses that have been swindled by the accreditation hyperbole.” He concluded, “It’s appalling how this foreign influenced accreditation racket is hurting American businesses, killing American jobs, wasting tax dollars, and weakening the quality of American made products, and therefore, those behind the racket should be locked up for treason.”

Guberman’s Youtube channel has dozens of videos in which he talks about the accreditation scheme hoodwinking U.S. businesses by registrars belonging to ANAB-IAF at at http://bit.ly/2ugQBr1

ABAC, Others Call For FTC To Investigate Lockheed Martin For Antitrust Violations

The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) is calling for the the Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Competition to investigate Lockheed Martin for allegedly colluding with two other organizations in effort to restrain competition.

Washington, DC (USA), April 6th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman, CEO of Connecticut-based G-PMC Group, LLC, and a possible candidate for U.S. Senate (http://www.DarylGuberman.com) asked the FTC to investigate whether the aerospace giant Lockheed Martin violated antitrust laws and possibly engaged in espionage by colluding with China-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and Wisconsin-based ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Both IAF and ANAB are currently under investigation by the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC), a private non-partisan accreditation body and observer group that over-sees, investigates and sets rules for recognized certification and accreditation bodies in the United States.

Guberman and MFGpartners president Don LaBelle have submitted complaints to the FTC’s Bureau of Competition alleging Lockheed Martin is restraining competition by only accepting a single accreditation body group for its suppliers certified to the AS9100 standard. Guberman said Lockheed Martin’s leadership will only recognize certificates of suppliers and prospective suppliers with certification bodies recognized by the Chinese led International Accreditation Forum (IAF). The Chairman & President of IAF is Chinese national Xiao Jianhua (See: http://dguberman.com/Lockheed_Weakens_US_Defense.pdf)

“It’s a slap in the face to every American citizen and taxpayer knowing Lockheed Martin, the country’s largest federal contractor receiving billions in tax dollars is forcing the hand of American manufacturers by requiring their ISO certification is accredited and/or recognized by China-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF),” said Guberman. He added, “The FTC must investigate this matter for the possibility of corporate espionage, collusion with a foreign led entity, and perhaps treason.”

If elected Senator, Guberman said he will push for a new Antitrust Act, a bipartisan bill to hold organizations accountable, particularly federally-funded corporations shown to be restraining competition by utilizing an anti-competitive accreditation scheme designed to limit the recognition of certification bodies lacking accreditation and/or membership of a particular non-governmental organization or collaborated group. In short, the bill will ensure equal opportunity for registration companies certifying businesses to quality management standards set forth by The International Organization for Standardization, which is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations.

The Sherman Act already outlaws every contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade, and any monopolization, attempted monopolization, or conspiracy or combination to monopolize. The penalties for violating the Sherman Act can be severe, individuals and businesses that violate it may be prosecuted by the Department of Justice.

ABAC warned the quality community last year of a strategically designed and well funded accreditation program that is potentially enabling corporations such as Lockheed Martin to violate antitrust laws without appearing to be in violation by claiming the accreditation is an “option” or simply a “preference” over alternative sources. Guberman said in Lockheed Martin’s documentation, the company is allegedly concealing its antitrust activities by claiming its requirement for IAF recognition and/or ANAB accreditation is only a “preference” for its suppliers. Suspiciously, none of Lockheed Martin’s first-tier suppliers appear to be certified by an ISO registrar independent of the ANAB-IAF collaboration. The complaint cites even more troubling is Lockheed Martin management sits on the board of IAF as an associate member, and enjoys voting privileges on policies. Conflict of interest? See http://dguberman.com/fff.pdf

ABAC reported last year both ANAB and IAF may be controlled by the same individual. Tax records show Randy Dougherty, an individual believed to be living in Michigan serves in leadership roles for both the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). See: http://dguberman.com/IAF_tax_report.pdf

“Lockheed Martin has monopoly power in the aerospace industry and it’s possibly using that dominance to coerce its suppliers to pay ANAB and IAF accreditation and membership fees without an option for an alternative source,” said LaBelle. He concluded, “Anti-competitive practices have a negative effect on the economy, pricing, and quality because of limited options for the buyer, and therefore, the Federal Trade Commission needs to investigate if Lockheed Martin is engaging in anti-competitive business practices, and whether or not the aerospace conglomerate is aware of the widely unknown collaboration between IAF and ANAB and it’s leadership connection, especially the China-led International Accreditation Forum.”

Guberman’s complaint warns the accreditation scheme could be defrauding taxpayers more seriously than originally reported. Public records show The Department of Commerce NIST (National Institute of Standards Technology) has awarded millions of dollars to the Manufacturing Extension Program (MEP) which has 60 NIST-MEP entities in 50 states. Guberman said all of them follow the same anti-competitive accreditation scheme by “recommending” only certification bodies accredited by The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), without providing an alternative source. The NIST-MEP-ANAB collaboration is designed to shut out ANAB competitors in which NIST sends millions in federal funds to MEP entities across the country, and in return MEP exclusively promotes ANAB by claiming it to be their “preferred” accreditation body for ISO certifications. The NIST-MEP-ANSI-ANAB accreditation scheme was first exposed by Guberman-PMC at: http://dguberman.com/NIST_ANAB_ANSI_ASQ_IAF_IAAC.pdf

A spokesperson for the American Board of Accredited Certifications said ABAC will continue to push the Federal Trade Commission to do its job and protect taxpayers by pursuing anti-competitive conduct as violations of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, which bans unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices such as the ‘pay-to-play’ accreditation scheme running wild in the certification of quality management systems that has spread without checks and balances to private, public and government sectors. See http://dguberman.com/Pay_To_Play_In_Quality.pdf

First Nations Self-Defense, SAFE International Self Defense Certification For First Nations

SAFE International Self Defense experts have expanded their self-defense services to include First Nations self-defense certification for those living and working in the First Nation communities.

Toronto, Canada, December 08, 2014 – (Straight Line PR) – SAFE International Self Defense experts have expanded their self-defense services to include First Nations self-defense certification for those living and working in the First Nation communities.

1. Aboriginal people are two times more likely than non-Aboriginal people to experience a violent victimization such as an assault, sexual assault or robbery.

2. Those aged 15 to 34 years were nearly two and a half times more likely to experience a violent victimization compared to those who were 35 years and older.

3. Aboriginal people were almost twice as likely to be the victim of spousal violence as non-Aboriginals. The homicide rate for an Aboriginal individual was almost seven times higher than that for non-Aboriginal people.

SAFE International™ First Nations intends to change these statistics by ensuring that all Aboriginal people are free from harm and get home to their families daily… safe and sound. SAFE International has taken the first step to making this possible. Recently SAFE International certified some members from the Timiskaming First Nations so that they can instruct members of their community in how to better protect themselves. The SAFE™ philosophy of self-protection is unlike any other. This is not a martial arts program, nor is it designed with complicated techniques that require hours and hours of practice. For starters, the main focus is not even on the physical component of self defense, but rather, on the awareness and avoidance aspect. At SAFE International™ they believe in providing individuals with the skills that can help prevent situations from getting physical in the first place. Unfortunately this preferred outcome isn’t always possible so there is hands-on training as well, based on real-life scenarios.

Another thing that distinguishes the self-defense program for First Nation communities from so many others is the approach they take. All of their seminars are taught by incorporating a great deal of humour, yes, humour. Without a doubt self defense is a very serious topic, however, the instruction of it doesn’t have to be intimidating or frightening. If you think back to some of the previous lessons you learned, I bet you would find that the ones you recall, and retained the most knowledge from, were the ones taught in an entertaining and memorable way.

What are the benefits to becoming A SAFE Certified Instructor?

1. You will give the residents of your First Nation community the skills to feel, and be safer!

2. You will be able to teach participants how to recognize and avoid violence before it begins!

3. You will have the ability to teach others how to verbally de-escalate violence!

Advanced Data Systems’ MedicsDocAssistant™ EHR Receives Quest Diagnostics Quality Solutions Certification

Advanced Data Systems (ADS) announced today that MedicsDocAssistant v. 7.0 is certified as a Silver Quality Solution by Quest Diagnostics under Quest’s Health IT Quality Solutions™ Program (the “Program”).

Paramus, NJ, USA (June 12, 2014) — Advanced Data Systems (ADS) announced today that MedicsDocAssistant v. 7.0 is certified as a Silver Quality Solution by Quest Diagnostics under Quest’s Health IT Quality Solutions™ Program (the “Program”). Quest Diagnostics is the world’s leading provider of diagnostic information services.

As a certified Health IT Quality Solution, ADS and MedicsDocAssistant have been recognized by Quest Diagnostics as meeting or exceeding advanced industry standards for health IT quality and for providing a streamlined, interoperable solution that enables secure clinical laboratory ordering and results reporting through Quest Diagnostics connectivity solutions.

Quest Diagnostics created the Health IT Quality Solutions Program to collaborate with providers of electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical technologies to achieve optimized levels of clinical and operational quality for the benefit of physician practices, hospitals and integrated delivery networks. The Program is designed to maximize data quality and data and business process interoperability between Quest Diagnostics and select EHR solutions that meet Quest’s high standards.

David Barzillai, President of ADS, said, “We take pride in working with Quest Diagnostics and in being able to have our MedicsDocAssistant EHR attain certification as a Quest Diagnostics Silver Quality Solution. In addition to that, MedicsDocAssistant v. 7.0 is certified as a complete EHR for Stage 2 Meaningful Use, and excellent for a wide range of primary care and specialty practices of any size.”

To be eligible for the Program, an EHR solution must have an approved and commercially viable interface to Quest Diagnostics web services Data Exchange Service which processes both lab orders and results.
