Medical device research and development is responsible for substantive gains in length and quality of life, perhaps most profoundly by expanding the scope of illnesses that can be detected in a more timely or less invasive fashion. Quest Diagnostics, Inc. has earned a spot in our top 100. The greatest contributors to this positive outcome are Medical Devices ($47.6 B), Economic Value ($2.7 B), and Medical Services ($809.3 M). Positive value from Medical Devices and Medical Services is linked to an estimate of 1,003,422.4 additional years lived by people worldwide. Quest Diagnostics produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Downsides for this company are associated with Greenhouse Gases (-$146.2 M) and Workplace Injuries (-$45.6 M). Medical Devices, Economic Value, and Workplace Injuries are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Medical Services and Greenhouse Gases are mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships.
