Orchid Medical successfully completed the requirements to be a diagnostic testing network (DTN) as defined by New York State Workers’ Compensation Board. New York State’s Diagnostic Testing Network Regulations require diagnostic testing networks (DTNs), as well as the claim administrators that use DTNs, to file information with the Board.
A DTN is an organization, like Orchid Medical, who contracts with Board authorized medical providers who have agreed to provide diagnostic tests, such as MRIs, CAT scans, PET scans and other tests used to diagnose injury or disease. An insurance carrier, third party administrator (TPA) or self-insured employer may contract with a DTN and require that all of its injured workers use a DTN to obtain diagnostic testing.
When claim administrators (workers’ compensation insurance carriers, self-insured employers and TPA) contract with legally and properly organized diagnostic testing networks, injured workers are required to obtain diagnostic examinations and tests from medical providers affiliated with the diagnostic testing network. To determine whether an injured worker needs to use a diagnostic testing network, identify who is administering the claim. It may be a carrier, self-insured employer or a TPA.

Most injured workers are scheduled within 24 hours and reports are delivered within 48 hours of service completion.
