Keep Your Patients Safer with Drug Toxicology
MedPath works closesly with medical centers, rehab facilities, and more to provide urinalysis collection and testing to physicians in-office. Our clinicians are available on-call and offer quick turnaround lab results. Drug toxicology testing is a great tool doctors utilize to make certain their patients are using their medication as directed. Doctors typically drug test patients before they prescribe medication in order to obtain a baseline and to see if there is anything else in the patient’s system that could be contraindicated with what they’re prescribing. Doctors also use it as a tool to look for signs of addiction or abuse that the patient may experience when dealing with narcotics.
It’s encouraged and recommended by most workers compensation departments & employers in most states in order to be sure of patient compliance and limit the possibility of prescription drug abuse which drive up costs for insurance companies every year.
