Protect Your Patients with the PtProtect® Pain Management Program
With the PtProtect® (‘Patient Protect’) Pain Management Program, you get confidence and reliability to ensure successful pain medication monitoring.
- Detects up to 38 prescribed medications and illicit drugs, reducing the possibility of adverse drug reactions and identifying potential diversion of medications.
Uses Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectometry (LC-MS/MS) and the lowest available detection thresholds for the most accurate and sensitive opiate/opioid testing. Our data shows that up to 30 percent of drugs found by LC-MS/MS would have been missed using conventional immunoassay screens or point of care drug tests for opiates and opioids.
Analytical reports and easy-to-understand interpretive comments eliminate guesswork and saves you time.
The PtProtect® difference:
- Monitors analgesic medication adherence to ensure patient safety and protect your practice
- Uses lowest detection thresholds (2-5 ng/mL) for the most sensitive, comprehensive detection of opiates and opioids
- Offers highest testing specificity available
- Expert toxicologists available for consult and face-to-face meetings
- Four comprehensive panel configurations detect up to 38 prescribed medications and illicit drugs
- Detects non-prescribed analgesic medication, reducing the possibility of adverse drug interactions
- Employs LC-MS/MS technology to detect opiates and opioids, avoiding false negatives that may result from an immunoassay screen test or point-of-care drug screen
- Simplifies patient management with easy-to-understand interpretations in addition to quantitative results
- Clinic-specific Discrepancy Reports provide a snapshot of your patient population’s compliance to their prescription regimen over a specific time period. The report also details how your clinic’s discrepancy rate compares with PeaceHealth Laboratories’ average rate of patient medication compliance
