Our Unbeatable R.O.I. Is No Accident
Lowest Cost Per User Identified. Highest Detection Rate. Unbeatable R.O.I.
The Most Accurate Measure Of Testing Value
A simple calculation takes the total cost of testing a pool of people and divides it by the number of users identified. The output of this calculation is “Cost-Per-User Identified” and differentiates two drug testing financial elements:
- Test PRICE which is a dollar amount paid for laboratory services regardless of test outcome
- Test COST which is the dollar amount paid to identify a drug user
It is included in the calculator on this page, and is a useful indicator for differentiating testing methodologies and laboratories for the outcome that matters most—the cost to identify a single drug user.
Determining the Cost-Per-User Identified is the starting spot for quantifying the return on your drug testing investment.
Our Four-Part Calculator
This calculator is a subset of the one we use to help clients determine what their R.O.I. on drug testing with Psychemedics is likely to be. It uses industry data from the Department of Labor, National Institutes of Health, National Survey on Drug Use, Health, National Safety Council, Kaiser Foundation Annual Health Insurance survey and Psychemedics-collected data on drug test positive rates for various industries.
- Quantifies R.O.I. over a one and five-year period
- Details the true cost of identifying one drug user
- Approximates the costs of drug usage for your organization
This calculator delivers an approximation. A view of R.O.I. using your data rather than industry standard information is available by contacting your Psychemedics representative or completing a contact form on this page.
