Controlled Substance Monitoring

Preventing opioid and controlled substance misuse is complex. The right tools can make it easier.

Data supports that up to 50 percent of patients have aberrant drug test results*.

Prevent misuse, its downstream complications, and staggering costs through early detection of misuse.

Our GuideMed program assists health systems and their providers in implementing and executing protocols to support appropriate prescribing, use, and monitoring of opioids and other drugs with risk of misuse.

Actionable Data

  • Ensure medication is taken as prescribed
  • Confirm patients are not receiving any other potentially harmful medications
  • Detect early signs of opioid or controlled substance misuse to prevent addition and overdose
  • Achieve utilization control for UDT, ensuring low risk patients are not over-tested and high risk patients are not under-tested

GuideMed does the work of monitoring, so clinicians can focus on patient care.
