Primary Care

Primary care clinicians are faced with the challenge to diagnose and find effective treatment solutions for a wide variety of conditions, such as pain, anxiety and depression. Prescription medications are necessary to run a practice effectively and providing the right treatment plan is vital to your practice. Utilization of pharmacotherapy is steadily on the rise.

With prescription drug abuse also on the rise, physicians must take action to mitigate risk of running a practice that is highly dependent on controlled substances. Therefore, it is crucial to monitor medication compliance within your practice population. Gulfstream Diagnostics can be your key partner to monitor and ensure patient compliance. We offer an easy drug-monitoring program that is accurate and allows you to focus on quality care. Our low detection levels allow you to see what drugs your patients are taking.

Medication monitoring with urine drug testing (UDT) is a key clinical tool providing clinicians with objective information to support decisions about medication therapy. UDT can help clinicians:

  • Monitor and support decisions about medication therapy, particularly controlled substances
  • Identify recent use of prescription medications, non-prescribed medications and illicit substances
  • Detect medications that may result in a drug-drug interaction
  • Advocate for and communicate with patients about individual treatment plans
  • Identify possible illicit drug or medication abuse, misuse or diversion

The benefits of implementing UDT for primary care providers includes less reliance on intuition to assess for misuse, and the ability to identify unknown opioid misuse and/or substance use.
