What is Direct Access Testing?

"Direct access testing" (DAT) is generally defined as consumer (as opposed to physician) initiated testing of human specimens. DAT is also known as "direct-to-consumer" or "patient-authorized" testing. Some states do not allow for DAT. Where DAT is permitted, it is commonly ordered by an individual without a prior consultation with a physician or a physician’s request for testing.

Why Should I Get Tested at On Demand Medical Testing?

On Demand Medical Testing is not intended to be a substitute for consultation with a physician or other appropriate health care provider, or annual physical examination. Our tests are for your information.

  • Stay Healthy
    Tests can identify risk factors of disease-important information that can help you and your doctor target lifestyle changes.

  • Detect disease early
    Some diseases develop over time and produce no symptoms. Testing can help you identify these serious conditions early. In general, the longer a medical condition remains undetected and undiagnosed, the more difficult the treatment and the less chance for success.

  • Clarify family history
    Lab tests can confirm or rule out inherited conditions and if present, lab monitoring can guide corrective therapy.

  • Participate in your healthcare
    Arriving at your doctor's office with test results in hand and an understanding of those results will save time and allow for a more in-depth discussion of specific concerns.

  • Obtain Peace of mind
    "Normal" test results are significant. Your tests can help establish your "baseline" for future monitoring and to give you general information about your health. In addition, if you have made lifestyle changes to improve your health, you will want to know if your efforts have been successful!

  • Maintain Privacy - no one else will see your test results!
    We take your right to privacy very seriously. Unless we have your permission or are required by law to release results to someone else (as in the case of some communicable diseases that have to be reported to the state department of health), only On Demand Medical Testing, our laboratory's professional staff and your medical consultants will see your results.

  • Save money on insurance premiums
    Prior to having blood tests related to insurance applications, verify that your laboratory profile is in the optimal ranges-if suboptimal, correct abnormalities like cholesterol, triglycerides or glucose prior to submission of official samples.

  • Maintain an excellent health profile
    Unfortunately, lab tests ordered by your physician become part of your permanent medical record and you may be forced to disclose it in certain circumstances-change in job, application for life, health and disability insurance and for other important life events. If known, many lab markers for future health concerns can be modified by simple lifestyle changes. Once optimized, your lab profile can become an aid instead of a hindrance in your permanent medical record.

    What if My Test Results are Abnormal?

    Abnormalities should be considered an early warning, but do not necessarily mean you have an illness or disease. We strongly recommend you discuss the results with your healthcare provider for evaluation, further testing and diagnosis.

    Will I Be Able to Understand the Results?

    Yes. All test results include the normal reference ranges, with abnormalities indicated. We recommend you seek a healthcare provider to discuss results outside normal ranges. For a detailed explanation of tests offered click here. For assistance in understanding lab results, click here.

    Why Do Employers Drugtest?

    Alcohol and drug abuse creates significant safety and health hazards and can result in decreased productivity and poor employee morale.  It also can lead to additional costs in the form of health care claims, especially short-term disability claims. 

    Common reasons employers implement drug testing are to:

    • Deter employees from abusing alcohol and drugs

    • Prevent hiring individuals who use illegal drugs

    • Be able to identify early and appropriately refer employees who have drug and/or alcohol problems

    • Provide a safe workplace for employees

    • Protect the general public and instill consumer confidence that employees are working safely

    • Comply with State laws or Federal regulations

    • Benefit from Workers’ Compensation Premium Discount programs

    Who is Allowed Access to the Results of a Drug Test?

    The result of a drug test may be considered personal health information. Consequently, there may be restrictions on how and whether such information (as well as other information related to an employee’s history of alcohol or drug use) can be shared with others.  This is why employees who undergo a drug test generally must sign a release (usually at the time of the test) in order for their employer to receive the results.  For more information about issues related to the release of health information, contact DHHS.  This agency administers the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which dictates under what circumstances and to whom health information may be released.
