Health professionals will have access to a new website offering important regulatory compliance information.

"Our goal as a company is to provide the resources, support and services that help physicians focus on what they do best – achieve better outcomes for their patients. For that reason, we offer a compliance program that adheres to all laws and regulations for laboratories, and contributes to strong patient care and trust among physicians and payors," said Regina Morano, J.D., CHC, Corporate Compliance Officer & Vice President. "Beyond the technical monitoring and information services offered, these 24/7 web resources enable health professionals to see our strong commitment to compliance and ethics and to focus on patient care."

Ameritox works closely with independent and Federal agencies to review its customer support programs. Developed in strict adherence to Office of Inspector General (OIG) guidelines and recommendations, the Ameritox best-in-class compliance program seeks to provide physicians with an information platform that meets the highest standards for interactions with the pain medication monitoring industry.

"Integrity is one of the pillars of our company's values, and we make that value inherent in every decision we undertake and every process we establish at Ameritox," said Ancelmo Lopes, Chief Executive Officer. "We're proud to offer this new package of tools to physicians, so that they can be assured that they are meeting the highest compliance standards – and can then focus on the needs of their patients."

Ameritox is a corporate member of the Health Care Compliance Association, and commends HCCA for its success in increasing awareness of the importance of compliance and ethics in the health care industry.

Ameritox's Compliance Program was designed to ensure that the organization adheres to all legal, ethical and regulatory laws, policies and standards in its industry. As the national leader in pain medication monitoring, Ameritox developed its program under the highest standards that OIG established in the publication "Compliance Program Guidelines for Clinical Laboratories." OIG standards are available in the Federal Register: http://oig.hhs.gov/authorities/docs/cpglab.pdf
