Comp Care Partners, an administrator of nationally recognized occupational medical testing services for the trucking industry, introduces CCP Connect. This online recordkeeping platform improves the accuracy of Department of Transportation-mandated drug and alcohol testing, as well as physical exams, for truck drivers.
“DOT medical exam recordkeeping is fraught with unintentional inaccuracies,” said Samuel J Perez, president. “Over 40% of exams have illegible or incomplete entries, opening carriers to the liability of hiring unqualified drivers. CCP Connect remedies these, and several other problems inherent with handwritten DOT exam long forms.”
Using CCP Connect, all medical information from the DOT exam is electronically entered by registered medical providers that have password-protected access. It utilizes a DOT-approved format, forms and instructions to guide the medical providers through the data collection process. Entries cannot be skipped or entered illegibly, ensuring 100% completion of all information necessary for a DOT certificate to be issued. This built-in self-auditing compliance logic reduces the risk of passing unqualified drivers.
The platform also reduces data storage requirements for truck fleets. DOT requirements include keeping medical exam records up to five years. Electronic records (such as chain of custody forms and drug and alcohol testing results) are far easier to store, access and protect through encryption. Trucking firm customers have access to their employee data 24/7 through the Comp Care Partners client portal.
CCP Connect will also help to ensure motor carrier compliance with registration requirements of the National Registry of Medical Examiners that will begin implementation in 2012.
This platform was enhanced through a strategic partnership with Road Ready Inc.
CCP Connect is available to motor carriers nationwide exclusively through Comp Care Partners as part of its Medical Exam services. For more details, contact Comp Care Partners at 800-753-9953, or e-mail [email protected].
