3 Reasons Your Practice Needs an On-Site Allergy-Testing Service

According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 50 million people in the United States are estimated to suffer from allergies. That’s 1 out of every 5 Americans; offering an on-site allergy testing service will not only provide this much-needed care, but also increase income. Having an on-site allergy testing service in your medical practice has many benefits. This ancillary medical service can generate additional revenue not only from established patients who are allergy-sufferers and with whom you have already developed an exceptional doctor-patient relationship, but also from new clients perhaps just initially seeking allergy treatment. Your medical practice will continue to flourish and become even more efficient and patient-centric by offering this convenient, much-needed, and revenue-generating on-site allergy testing solution. As a primary care provider with this service on-site, you’re immediately able to enhance the quality and full-circle of care you provide to your patients requiring allergen immunotherapy treatment.

 

Here’s why an on-site allergy testing service is a viable option for your practice:

 

It Will Increase Your Revenue and Your Patient Retention

An on-site ancillary service that assists in identifying, diagnosing, and effectively treating seasonal or environmental allergies enables you to immediately address and treat this common ailment of many patients ~ all while seamlessly adding a new income stream to your practice. Many primary care physician offices today just aren’t properly equipped to treat patients with allergen immunotherapy.  The result? They often have to refer the patients to an off-site lab or other facility to be tested. With this full service provided right in your practice, however, your loyal, referring patients are grateful they don’t have to be inconvenienced to go to another location and then come back to you to be treated.  Further, you are able to generate that additional income from the on-site testing service vs. losing that revenue stream to another provider of the same service.

 

It Will Be a Logistically and Financially (Pollen-free) Breeze to Set Up

With so many equally-important patients, colleagues, and individuals vying for your time and undivided attention, there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to sit down and carefully consider all the integral details necessary to set up an on-site allergy testing service all on your own. In addition, with the cost of practicing medicine constantly rising, it’s not easy designating and investing funds exclusively for staff and equipment to test patients for allergy disorders. By working with the right provider of ancillary medical services, you’ll be provided with a complete allergy solution for your office, from state-of-the-art testing to allergy immunotherapy.  Ancillary Medical Solutions and their vetted service providers will pay for and provide all the equipment and materials needed for the allergy lab set up; they’ll provide a technician/consultant on-site to administer the tests to the patients, and provide ongoing training to your both staff and your patients. In addition, billing is third-party and hassle-free; all the compliance and billing components will be handled by Ancillary Medical Solutions, so you won’t be adding any more work to your staff or your practice.

 

It Will Create New Business

While existing patients will appreciate the convenience and expediency of your practice being able to treat their allergies on-site, new patients who suffer from allergies will be drawn to your practice because of the unique, expanded services you offer. As a result, this  service will boost your income, your number of patients, and your patient loyalty. Statistics show that 15% of revenue is from ancillary medical services, and 22% of medical practices have already added one. On-site allergy services increase practice awareness by offering a wider range of options to your patients. New clients and existing patients will be impressed with the addition of this ancillary medical service because of how easy and convenient it is for them to be treated.
