LabCorp Partners with The Recovery Platform to Aid Physicians Treating Opioid-dependent Patients
3 May 2018 - - Burlington, North Carolina-based global independent clinical laboratory company LabCorp (NYSE: LH) and substance use specific The Recovery Platform have formed a collaboration to expand access to medication-assisted opioid treatment on a national basis, the companies said.
The Recovery Platform, a monitoring tool designed to help primary care physicians address and manage opioid-use disorder patient recovery in a compliant and efficient manner, offers a set of tools to assist physicians monitoring patient compliance and progress, and to help patients stay on track with their recovery through plug-in integration with existing electronic health records.
LabCorp is the exclusive national laboratory integrated within The Recovery Platform, allowing for seamless access to LabCorp's medication-assisted treatment monitoring services including recently introduced test options to support physicians providing buprenorphine (Suboxone) treatment.
LabCorp test orders can be made through The Recovery Platform, and the test results are incorporated back into The Recovery Platform. LabCorp's integration within The Recovery Platform supports patient trend analysis, and also highlights results that indicate treatment non-compliance, alerting the care team to the need for prompt intervention.
LabCorp, a global life sciences company, is deeply integrated in guiding patient care, providing comprehensive clinical laboratory and end-to-end drug development services.
It delivers diagnostic solutions, brings innovative medicines to patients faster, and uses technology to improve the delivery of care. The company reported net revenues of nearly USD 9.5bn for 2016 through the contributions of 52,000 employees in approximately 60 countries.
The Recovery Platform facilitates and guides physician and patient compliance when practicing medication assisted treatment. It integrates easily with the physician's electronic health record and leverages its concierge-like patient functionality to expand access and privacy for opioid treatment to more patients.
