About Alere eScreen®
eScreen, Inc., an Alere™ company, is a technology-enabled Third-Party Administrator (TPA) that provides next-generation employment screening applications for hiring and maintaining healthy and drug-free workforces.
eScreen, located in Overland Park, KS, was designed to be the ultimate management solution for nationwide employee screening programs. Founded in 1998 by Dr. Murray Lappe and the nation’s largest MRO corporation, eScreen has provided drugs-of-abuse screening and automated hiring program solutions for some of the nation’s largest hiring programs. Today with more than 4,000 eScreen Occupational Health Network (EOHN) provider locations, eScreen is setting the new standard for drug testing program management, by offering employers a truly nationwide solution. eScreen processes millions of healthcare and corporate data transactions each year through a centralized process that has been designed to ensure program compliance for all Department of Transportation (DOT) and non-DOT hiring programs. As the only truly integrated, electronic drug testing solution in the industry, the capabilities are virtually limitless in its ability to simplify local and nationwide testing.
In early 2010, eScreen merged with Pembrooke Occupational Health, a leading provider of employment screening and risk management services for both regulated and non-regulated clients. The transaction brought together two best-in-class employment screening service providers and unified each of the organizations' complementary product portfolios. The merger with Pembrooke brought new products to the eScreen service offering including onsite drug testing and medical services, as well a dynamic driver qualification file management system.

In the spring of 2012, eScreen was purchased by Alere, Inc., a global leader in enabling individuals to take charge of their health through the merger of rapid diagnostics and health management. Under the Alere Toxicology umbrella, eScreen is positioned to utilize Alere’s larger breadth of resources to improve eScreen’s delivery, efficiency and effectiveness, as well as allow the deployment of additional products on eScreen platforms.

There are several ways that eScreen differentiates itself from the competition. Most prominent among them is being the only instrumented point-of-collection test which delivers negative urine test results within 15 minutes—all while being controlled from a secure, paperless web platform. This platform gives employers total visibility of test data throughout the entire process—from employer to collection facility to lab and then to MRO. It also offers a wide range of innovative products and services including eScreen123®, the first paperless chain-of-custody form; and MyeScreen®, the industry-leading web-based result reporting and program management software. The company’s newest product, Health-eScreen®, is an electronic application to schedule, process and deliver reports on medical services and physical exams via the eScreen platform. With eScreen, employers can easily manage a consistent, compliant and efficient nationwide drug screening program.
eScreen is driven by the vision, passion and dedication of its employees who are committed to developing and delivering innovative products and services which automate and streamline the employee screening process by combining cutting-edge technology with superior customer service.
