Why Remote Drug Testing Saves Lives
2018: “The low rates of telehealth visits for substance use disorder that we found represent a missed opportunity to get people the help they need, especially in the context of the ongoing opioid epidemic,” said study author Haiden Huskamp, professor of health care policy at Harvard Medical School.
“…barriers include regulatory and reimbursement hurdles.” (Health Affairs 2018)
2019: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed three new billing codes to go into effect January 1, 2020 to help combat the opioid epidemic. These codes were established to help improve access to opioid addiction treatment through telemedicine encounters.
2020: COVID-19 Pandemic produces critical need for telehealth services. U.S. government lifts most of the existing telehealth restrictions.
Many companies have been following along with the telehealth evolution for years and have developed tools precisely for these times of transition.
