Our “Mission” is simple – We protect the Patient, Physician and Practice.
WHAT SETS MISSION TOXICOLOGY APART FROM OTHER LABS?
Mission Toxicology is local and committed to quality testing. We will collect specimens and perform the test the very same night, which allows us to provide Qualitative test reports within 24 hours. Quantitative Tests will take up to 36-48 hours.
Many labs will require you to run a complete comprehensive panel of multiple drug classes and illicit drugs rather than allowing the physician to choose individual analytes to test per patient. This cuts down on over utilization of services and increased billing to the insurance companies, while still keeping the practice in compliance.
WHY SHOULD I MONITOR MY PATIENTS?
Medication Monitoring Screening:
- Helps physicians evaluate patients, support assessment and diagnosis, and advocate on behalf of patients.
- Helps to identify possible drug – drug interactions.
- Helps to identify possible misuse, abuse or diversion.
“Prescription opioid use is on the rise, it is increasingly important for clinicians to effectively manage the medication adherence of their chronic pain patients. The American Pain Society and American Academy of Pain Medicine guidelines for chronic opioid therapy state that “clinicians should consider periodically obtaining medication monitoring screenings or other information” as part of their plan of care. Medication Monitoring is supported by the Texas Medical Board, Official Disability Guidelines (ODG), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and the Federation of State Medical Boards”.
