Sure Med Compliance Partners with Synergy Laboratories to Advance the Fight Against Opioid Abuse


MOBILE, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sure Med Compliance®(SMC) and Synergy Laboratories (Synergy)
are providing physicians a new weapon in the critical fight to combat
the opioid epidemic. As a result of the two companies’ partnership,
diagnostic results such as urine drug screens can now be reported to the
same dashboard that warns a provider of patient red flags found through
the Sure Med Compliance patient evaluations.

“The opioid epidemic is affecting thousands of families in Alabama, and
has ruined too many lives. As a laboratory with a conscience, we believe
we have a moral obligation to do everything in our power to provide
physicians with every advantage when deciding if opioids are the
preferred treatment option,” saidBrad
Pitts, Synergy’s Chief Executive Officer
. He added, “Laboratory
results often provide the first sign of substance misuse and deploying
this technology will allow physicians to make more informed prescribing
decisions.”

John
Bowman, Sure Med Compliance’s Chief Executive Officer
, echoed Pitts’
comments, and highlighted the common vision that both companies have for
this partnership. He said, “We knew partnering with a diagnostic
laboratory was necessary for building a solution that could start
turning the tide of the opioid epidemic. In Synergy, we have found a
partner whose technology will enhance our reporting and screening tools
and the fact that they share so many of our core beliefs is icing on the
cake.”

The two Mobile, Alabama based companies are planning more strategic
partnerships across different industries and have begun developing new
software to help manage patients on other controlled substances as well
as patients being treated for addiction.
