Medical Review Officer
About the MRO
Physician review of drug test chain of custody procedures and test results. Federal guidelines require certification. Fleet Screen MRO’s are certified by the American Association of Medical Review Officers (AAMRO). In additional to federal requirements, several states require MRO review of positive test results prior to reporting to the employer.
Duties of an MRO:
- Review chain of custody forms for accuracy and completeness.
- Consultation with employee/applicants who test positive to determine if prescription drugs or relevant biomedical factors have caused a laboratory positive test.
- Consultation with laboratory certifying scientists and Adjudication of Non-negative tests.
Basically this service wants to help identify that the person’s identity exists, and that that person is who he says he is. This may include: address verification, state of issue, AKAs, deceased status, and much more.
FleetScreen utilizes a non-biased computerized selection program that can protect your company from claims of bias when selecting employees randomly for drug screening. Random Testing = deterrent for on the job drug abuse.
