Hospitals and healthcare systems have the responsibility of managing and monitoring patients’ health on a large scale. One important aspect of managing a patient’s health is monitoring prescription compliance and drug intake, including controlled prescription drugs (CPDs). CPDs include opioids, benzodiazepines, amphetamines, stimulants, muscle relaxers, and sleep aids. These are drugs of common misuse and abuse, and with the staggering numbers surrounding the opioid epidemic today, monitoring is more important than ever.
Managing drug intake through high sensitivity toxicology testing allows for better patient outcomes and more personalized patient care. Elite’s specialists can provide your hospital with detailed patient reports in as little as 24-48 hours that take the guesswork out of prescribing. Along with expedited turn-around times, you can have confidence in the accuracy of your results as Elite follows strict CLIA and COLA reporting guidelines. Our comprehensive analyzation provides clinicians with the most clinically-relevant reports to make informed decisions for each individual patient and take the guesswork out of prescribing.
In addition to creating the best possible care for patients, testing your samples in your own laboratory will allow you to recapture revenue that is being lost to outside reference labs. Multiple factors go into calculating how much revenue you could regain by opening your laboratory. With the help of these variables including: number of monthly samples, payer mix, state Medicaid reimbursement rates, and individual test volumes. In our experience, we have seen in-house laboratories as an extremely successful venture for hospitals and health systems across the country.
