Reduce Risk. Control Costs.

Injured workers suffering from pain are often prescribed opioids for treatment. Studies have shown that claim duration increases on average 100 days when are opioids are used for pain management. Long-term opioid use can be detrimental to an injured worker and your bottom line. Orchid’s urine drug testing (UDT) program monitors the use of prescribed and non-prescribed medications as well as the effectiveness and safety of drug therapies. Our program uses automated business rules to flag dangerous drug scenarios triggering a UDT regimen. The regimen identifies injured workers who are susceptible to long-term opioid addiction, medication abuse, misuse and/or diversion.

The overriding goal of Orchid is helping injured workers get back to work and back to life quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.
