AT Forum interviewed Megan Marx, MPA, associate director for behavioral health care accreditation at the Joint Commission, to learn the details about the accreditation changes.
"We reached a middle ground here," explained Ms. Marx. This standard is to ensure that patients aren't placed in interim maintenance-methadone dosing without any additional services-unless they have already been designated "cleared for treatment," said Ms. Marx. "We're seeing more use of telemedicine, in particular in places where there are geological challenges," said Ms. Marx. "This is SAMHSA's language," said Ms. Marx of the drug testing. It's not clear whether the confirmation has to be done for all tests, however. "It could be that you need to wait until there's a challenge" by the patient, she said. Because the Joint Commission is a deemed accrediting body, it has to incorporate both the regulations and the SAMHSA guidelines into their standards, explained Ms. Marx. In developing standards, the Joint Commission always considers the liability of the OTP. "We want everyone to be able to provide care, and not worry about whether they will be sued," said Ms. Marx. "Anytime you see naloxone written into the federal guidelines, that's all new," said Ms. Marx. "Forced withdrawal after pregnancy happens too often," said Ms. Marx. Next year the Joint Commission will expand this standard to include educating all women of childbearing age, not just mothers (including pregnant women), said Ms. Marx. "This was the language that SAMHSA came out with in the guidelines, but we thought it should go farther," she said. "This is an acknowledgement of the fact that patients come to us with all sorts of issues and challenges and disorders that need to be treated," said Ms. Marx. Querying the PDMP is important because the patient may be getting prescriptions for medications that could interact with methadone, said Ms. Marx.
