Each healthcare professional determines the elements in the treatment plan for the patient with chronic pain. A vital part of this plan is Millennium’s medication monitoring and drug detection services, which allow healthcare professionals to design an individualized treatment program based on the medical necessity of each patient.
Medication Monitoring and Drug Detection Services
Incorporating medication monitoring and drug detection into a treatment program shows a commitment to patients. It provides additional information to help improve patient treatment. It can identify substances a patient may or may not be taking, drug-drug interactions, aberrant drug-related behavior, and assist in the refinement of chronic pain treatment plans.
Programs are designed by the healthcare professional, with regard to testing procedures and test options.
Healthcare professional options include:
- Perform in-office testing (with instant read or instrumented devices) and send to Millennium for quantification and additional testing, as medically necessary
- Order tests using urine and/or oral fluid (saliva) specimens
- Order tests individually based on medical necessity (no pre-set panels)
- Order single quantitative tests by LC-MS/MS for each individual drug for greater specificity, sensitivity and accuracy
Millennium’s medication monitoring and drug detection services also aid healthcare professionals in improving patient safety. Through our test results, a more thorough and complete picture of the patient is revealed so that the healthcare professional can determine the best path moving forward.
