June 13, 2017 – NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, continues to solidify their presence in the healthcare industry as a leading provider of integration services. Most recently, NetDirector has partnered with Addiction Care 101 to aid in the delivery of treatment for the growing opioid crisis around the country.
Addiction Care 101 (A101) is a cloud-based software platform that assists doctors in performing Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for people with prescription opioid and heroin use disorders. Medications (such as Suboxone) are used to prevent the patient from experiencing opioid withdrawal while they receive the necessary treatment, provided via telemedicine by their network of doctors and therapists to assist their recovery.
The software is based on a proven, successful model delivered on a solid platform of risk management and compliance to physicians and patients. The A101 platform allows for users to anonymously go through treatment and recovery without requiring family or employers to know. Technology including telemedicine and e-prescribing allows members (assisted by the network of doctors, drug counselors, and the A101 team) to pursue sobriety without having to worry about being seen in an addiction care facility.
Laurie Peregoy JD, Director of Program Compliance, states that, “NetDirector’s cutting edge integration technology allows A101 to more accurately monitor their member’s compliance. Specifically, the ease in which we are able to routinely access the Controlled Substance Database using their automated process gives A101 the critical assurance that members are not seeking drugs beyond their treatment program.”
By providing an automated integration to Controlled Substance Databases, NetDirector helps prevent “medication farming” – a major contributor to the abuse of opioid recovery drugs that has hindered the opioid rehabilitation efforts in the past.
William Beasley, one of A101’s network of Drug Counselors, further stated, “NetDirector’s bidirectional integration with our lab testing partners makes my job of treating my patients more thorough due to immediate alerts to both myself and my patient if the results expose compliance or other potentially life-threatening outcomes.”
By integrating with labs via a cloud-based, one-to-many style integration, NetDirector allows the practitioners and counselors that are part of the A101 network to stay informed and to expand their ability to treat opioid addiction disorders in recovery patients with greater accuracy. The compliance gains noted by A101 are a key benefit to the integration as well, so that the program can continue to function while maintaining the highest levels of transparency and discretion when needed.
