EmployeeScreenIQ Partners with eScreen, Introduces Online Drug Screening Solution

CLEVELAND / November 16, 2010 — Global employment screening provider EmployeeScreenIQ announced today a new Web-based drug testing solution that eliminates chain-of-custody paperwork, enables online scheduling and provides real-time analysis and reporting. The new solution is the result of a partnership with eScreen, a pioneering provider of employment screening technology and Web-based applications.

The pre-integrated and fully-automated drug testing solution drastically accelerates the background screening process by slashing turnaround times through online event scheduling and allows for Web-based, real-time analysis at the collection site and secure, confidential Web reporting to the employer.

Instead of printing chain-of-custody forms and handing them to candidates, who then have to take them to a laboratory, the form is created electronically at the collection location. Once an employee completes their test, results can be obtained within 15 minutes if the results are negative—as opposed to the traditional lab-based model timeframe of 24-48 hours.

The solution is supported by a national network of over 2,300 occupational health clinics that collect and analyze samples and immediately report five-panel results using eScreen’s proprietary eCup™ and eReader™ drugs of abuse screening technology.

“This partnership with eScreen not only provides our customers with significant cost savings, but it also streamlines the recruiting and staffing processes by making the background screening experience significantly more efficient,” said Nick Fishman, chief marketing officer for EmployeeScreenIQ. “By including a completely paperless chain-of-custody drug testing solution, our customers now have an easy and affordable way to purchase tests online.”
