Eliminates the possibility of overtesting or missing test
KIPU’s powerful HL7 lab and analyzer interfaces allow your medical personnel to place orders for testing, process requisitions, and receive lab results directly into the patient chart, saving you countless hours and effort spent faxing, reviewing, and scanning paper reports. In fact, Kipu has partnered with over 90 testing labs in order to process orders and results electronically. This is done via Kipu’s optional customizable lab interface. The lab interface enables substance abuse facilities to order, collect and receive lab results all within the same seamless interface.
Lab Test Templates
Simply go to Templates/Lab Test Profiles and click on New Lab Test Profile.
Enter a name for the profile. Examples:
Cocaine Confirm Positive
Cocaine Confirm Negative
Click on Active
Once you have finished with this template, click Create.
You can create custom Lab Test Profiles that reflect your organization’s specific needs and abide by your P&Ps (Policies and Procedures), and truly customize the treatment to your patients’ needs. This feature supports Toxicology, Clinical (bloodwork), Pharmacogenetic and Hair Segmentation Lab tests.
You can create as many custom Lab Test Profiles from your lab providers’ compendiums (menus) of tests as you need.
Start typing the name of the lab tests you want to include in this profile and select from your lab’s offerings. Repeat this procedure to add as many tests as you need. Please have in mind that some labs offer several options for each test and you will need to choose one, as choosing more would be a contradictory order, and the lab will not be able to proceed with the testing.
Urine Drug Testing
Urine drug tests include two different types of tests:
The first type of test produces “qualitative” or “presumptive” results; that is, the results indicate that the sample is positive or negative for specified classes of drugs. These tests can be performed under a certificate of waiver or a certificate of accreditation, depending on the equipment and the methodology used.
The second type of test produces “quantitative” or “definitive” results; that is, the results indicate the specific substance or drug and the quantity of the substance or drug in the sample. The quantitative test is a more sophisticated test that requires the laboratory to use costly, highly complex equipment. In order to perform these types of tests in a medical clinic, the clinic must possess a CLIA certificate of accreditation.
While UDTs and UDSs can play an important role in mental health and substance abuse treatment, a physician must make an individualized, patient-specific determination about the frequency of testing and the types of drugs to be tested in order for the testing to be considered medically necessary.
Because the drug testing must be tailored to each patient’s particular medical needs, standard panels of tests and testing at set intervals (such as at every designated office visit) may not be considered medically necessary. Always follow your organization’s Policies and Procedures, and consult with your ordering Physician and Compliance officer.
KIPU allows you to create local profile templates with your lab’s test offerings*, where you can narrow down your ordering, and tailor it to each patient, for example:
Comprehensive Intake Panel
Alcohol and other sedatives
Opiates and Opioids
Designer drugs, and more
*To better understand the lab’s test offerings, please contact your lab representative.
You can also customize as many Statements of Medical Necessity (SOMN™) as needed to better reflect the need for each order and avoid the appearance of cookie-cutter testing; for example:
SOMN™ for Intake testing
SOMN™ for Alcohol/sedative testing
SOMN™ for Opiate/Opioid testing
SOMN™ for Stimulant testing
SOMN™ for Designer Drug testing
When receiving a lab result, following your Policies and Procedures, the ordering Physician will need to sign the result, and may write a review note at the time of signing.
Hair Drug Testing
Kipu now offers Laboratory Interfaces for both Hair Drug Testing and Segmented Hair Drug Testing.
Thanks to the overwhelming success of Kipu’s Bi-directional (orders and results), Toxicology and Clinical Laboratory interfaces, we’re proud to announce two new interfaces for Hair Drug Testing and Segmented Hair Drug Testing. These new interfaces are already supported by a dozen Reference Labs and generate the same Statements of Medical Necessity and Medical Necessity Documentation Report (MNDR™).
