Easy Patient Monitoring

Your patients need pain relief, but prescription drug misuse and abuse are widespread, which makes your job more difficult. Drug diversion has become a major contributor to the opioid crisis. Plus, patient noncompliance is common, and for reasons that you might not always expect:
number one

Patients generally want to please their healthcare providers, so they often won’t talk about their noncompliance.
number two

Uncomfortable side effects could be among the reasons your patients aren’t taking their medications as prescribed.
number three

Family members or a caregiver could be substituting other medications for your patient’s prescribed drugs, then giving the pills to others or even selling them on the street.

Choose from Urine or Oral Fluids Testing

Medication monitoring via urine immunoassays or oral fluids is the way to make sure your patients are taking their meds as prescribed.

If results show that the prescribed drug(s) aren’t in their system, this is an opportunity to talk with patients about their medication regimen.
