ADIN Healthcare Identifies the Top Six Ways Employers Lose Money on Diagnostic Testing for Workplace Injuries
Date:11/18/2009

e appropriate tests are scheduled promptly, helping to speed up the process and get injured workers back on the job more quickly.
  • Requesting unnecessary contrast studies. Many physicians will request contrast studies, which are diagnostic tests that introduce a contrast medium to enhance or highlight a specific injured area, because they believe it provides better imaging. While contrast is appropriate and beneficial for some patients and/or tests, unnecessary contrast studies can significantly increase the cost of testing and the risk of a patient reaction. Network providers and experienced TPAs using evidence-based guidelines can ensure the appropriate use of contrast studies.
  • Excessive use of Electromyography (EMG) testing or nerve conduction tests. EMGs are used to help diagnose nerve disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome - one of the more prevalent work comp diagnoses. While an important diagnostic tool, more nerves and insertion points are often tested and billed than are necessary. Guidelines from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine and use of credentialed providers can help ensure appropriate use of this valuable tool.
  • "In today's market, employers are demanding more accountability from their imaging vendors," adds Moosher. "We must be diligent and control inappropriate testing, which can lead to lost benefit dollars and poor outcomes. By following industry guidelines and offering consistent, high-quality service, we can help our clients provide the best possible programs for their employees."
