DriverFacts integration enables hair testing

April 30, 2018
See how integration of DriverFacts and Psychemedics will improve Drug and Alcohol Manager user access to detection results for screens.

DriverFacts has integrated with Psychemedics Corporation for hair testing as part of its Drug and Alcohol Manager. This integration will give Drug and Alcohol Manager users access to superior drug detection results for drug screens.

Once a hair sample is obtained by a trained collector, it is sent to Psychemedics for testing. Lab results are electronically transmitted to the Drug and Alcohol Manager so the medical review officer (MRO) can review and perform a final result. Then the MRO sends the results to the designated employer representative (DER), who determines the driver’s hiring eligibility based on the results. Hair test results are also integrated into the DriverFacts “Safety Check” so a driver will not be hired if there is a pending test in the pipeline or a previous positive test per a company’s policy.

Psychemedics has been proven to provide superior detection rates using the smallest hair samples required, reducing cosmetic concerns and canceled tests. The company’s patented process releases virtually 100% of drugs from the hair. This hair drug testing process is effective at removing external contaminants and eliminating the possibility of results altered by common adulterants. It also provides a look at the pattern and quantity of drug use history, which is why many companies see the value in adopting hair testing as part of their hiring process.

The Drug & Alcohol Assistant from DriverFacts is a customizable, user-friendly solution that improves a process that is often cumbersome. This program features automatic random list generation, accurate MIS report processing, collection tracking and up-to-date documentation. It allows carriers to continue using their preferred collectors and testing sites, simplifies the process with built-in security, and saves carriers time by facilitating and speeding up the hiring process.
