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 your 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 be able to enhance the quality and full-circle of care you provide to your patients requiring allergen immunotherapy treatment.
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 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 Medical Ancillary Revenue service provided right in your practice, however, your loyal, referring patients are grateful they don’t have 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.
