Westox Labs is committed to compliance and client education. The main focus of our client education platform is to promote individualized testing according to payor policies and improved documentation of the provider’s rationale for test orders.
We closely track relevant clinical guidelines and payor policies on the role of drug testing in substance abuse treatment and other areas of medicine. We have incorporated into our provider education materials, both Medicare and professional medical society guidance on the nature and frequency of drug testing in various patient populations.
Drug testing plays a vital role in quality medical care, but testing must be specific to each patient and the provider’s rationale for testing specific drugs and testing frequency must be well-documented.
