Drug Screening From Cisive

Streamline Onboarding with a Fully Integrated Drug Screening Process

Cisive drug screening streamlines applicant onboarding with a fully integrated electronic Chain of Custody (eCOC) drug screening process that is completely configured in the Cisive Onboarding portal

  • Your applicants complete the self-registration process during the background screen and are presented with three local collection options, which are based on their current residential address. Applicants also have an option to select an alternative collection site to suit their schedule.
  • You have complete visibility into drug test results on the Cisive portal, including applicant registration, confirmation of actual collection, or no-show — through MRO (medical review officer) and final result.

Cisive has developed strategic alliances with best-in-class providers of drug and alcohol testing, as well as in-house medical review services, all employing the latest testing technology. Clients can receive rapid drug test results in real time, paperless drug test collections, online drug test scheduling, and notification of expired events and no-show donors.
