Thousands of EOHN clinics incorporate eReader, electronic chain-of-custody forms (eCCF), driver qualification file management, and more.
Become a clinic partner for collections
Alere eScreen® has partnered with thousands of occupational health clinics across the country (as well as emergency rooms, hospitals and urgent care centers) to form the eScreen Occupational Health Network (EOHN). When you join our network, we will train and certify your clinic to use our computerized drugs-of-abuse screening system—eScreen123®. This system guides your staff through a step-by-step process to ensure your clinic always delivers secure and confidential employee drug-testing collections.
Our eScreen123 system directs your clinic in completing:
- Rapid, lab-based urine collections
- Breath alcohol collections
- Physical examinations
One significant difference between our system and those of our competitors is our eCup® and eReader®—the industry's first computerized drug-screening technology. Our "walk-away" testing technology means you no longer handle or aliquot urine. Your staff is freed to handle other tasks. Plus, our drug test system is paperless and allows for rapid drug screens.

eScreen123’s web-based software program makes your job exceptionally easy. Our wizard-driven system ensures your clinic performs consistent, efficient DOT (Department of Transportation) and non-DOT employee drug testing collections. How? Our high-tech system basically helps prevent your staff from making mistakes. Our system also incorporates customer-specific processes so the clinic staff always performs the proper tests and follow the correct exception procedures.
Another bonus: For all non-DOT testing events, our system creates an electronic chain-of-custody form (eCCF), which begins at the time of the collection. The eCCF comes complete with digital signatures of both the donor and the collector. This feature eliminates the expense and delays typically associated with incomplete paper forms and the faxing/mailing of paper chains.
- Provides consistent collection procedures.
- Helps minimize collection errors.
- Captures data and statistics for reports.
- Manages services for both DOT- and nonregulated programs.
eScreen’s eCup, along with the eReader, creates the industry’s first and only digitally interpreted non-DOT rapid testing system. The eCup is a patented urine-collection device that allows for rapid, under-seal screening. A major advantage to our “smart” cup is that it doesn’t require human intervention or interpretation. That means there’s no chance for human error.
How does the eCup work? Once the donor deposits his or her urine specimen into the plastic cup, the lid is attached and sealed. This creates a completely self-contained unit that does not require the clinician to pour, transfer or pipette the specimen into any other container. Instead, the cup—in combination with our patented eReader appliance—does all the work.
The eCup’s lid contains several embedded reagent test strips that are sensitive to the five-test SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) profile cutoff levels. The lid’s test strips also detect and provide adulteration panels for pH, creatinine and nitrites.
When the eCup is placed into the eReader device, its test strips are digitally screened for the presence or absence of drugs of abuse. The result? Rapid drug test results for all negative drug screens, sent directly to your customer.
The eScreen eReader is a sophisticated appliance that uses digital technology to scan the test lid of a sealed eCup. This procedure provides an automated, objective, confidential testing process. The eReader uses bar code technology, coupled with optical imaging, to electronically capture the drug test results. There is no subjectivity of a clinician reading the results. Within 15 minutes, the eReader automatically reports negative eCup urine drug screen results to the customer via his or her MyeScreen.com account (or another applicant-tracking system).
Past that, the only time you to handle a test is on non-negative samples. For those, you package the drug screen samples with the chain-of-custody form and ship it to the laboratory for confirmation testing.
Lab-based urine testing allows for all panel options. The sample is collected at the point-of-service and then processed through the eScreen system. All non-DOT tests are performed using eScreen’s electronic chain of custody form and automated results reporting. The system also coordinates the collection, paper federal form completion and shipment of all DOT tests and can also report these test results to the employer online.

eScreen’s electronic chain-of-custody form (eCCF) reduces costs and administrative functions because we eliminate the need for paper forms. It also means you’ll minimize errors during collection, ensure consistency of procedures and link all parts of the donor-screening process.
The eScreen system incorporates security technologies that protect all aspects of the electronic signature: capture, presentation, validation and storage. In fact, our security protocol ensures that all electronic data is nonrefutable, legally valid and has a defensible audit trail.
As an additional layer of authentication, our system adds an auditable time stamp as it embeds the electronic signatures with the eCCF document.
We provide a truly paperless process. You no longer face time-consuming post-analytic work. No more data entry or transcription of test details. No faxing. And no manual record-keeping.
In fact, you never have to print the chain unless you need to send the specimen to the laboratory or the donor requests a copy of the paperwork.
In addition to drug screening, our eScreen123 program also allows you to process and manage a variety of other events including breath alcohol tests, hair drug testing, DNA screening, physical exams, as well as health and medical services. Collections and screenings become data that are “re-creatable events.” This creates sample integrity, increased confidentiality and protocol consistency for the donor and your clinic.
