WEBINAR:  Federally Mandated Drug and Alcohol Testing in a Medical Environment

Many of our workplace customers are medical facilities, such as occupational or urgent care clinics, and we have seen more and more employers outsourcing occupational health services. Including drug and alcohol testing in your portfolio of services can be a significant revenue stream for clinics. It can, however, prove difficult to separate medical procedures and practices from the forensic protocols required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) testing program and other federal drug and alcohol testing programs.

This webinar will educate attendees on the differences between a forensic testing procedure, such as a workplace alcohol or drug test, and a medical procedure. There is common misconception in the industry, particularly in large healthcare systems, that just because the test is performed in a medical facility means it is medical and therefore must comply with HIPAA. This is simply not true. The presentation will include best practices, record keeping, and cultivating a “defensible” or “forensic” mindset, rather than a “medical” mindset while performing DOT tests.
