Allergy Testing and Treatment in Primary Care
Why Add Ancillary Allergy Services to Your Practice?
Allergy testing and treatment were exclusively reserved for allergists, but the growing allergy crisis the U.S. faces today has dramatically changed this. Allergic disease is now the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in America today. Without the help of PCPs and non-allergists, there are more than 50 million Americans who experience various types of allergies every year and fewer than 5,000 board-certified allergists in the country—a ratio of 10,000 to 1.
Allergy testing and immunotherapy in primary care can dramatically enhance revenue and profitability because most allergy patients would prefer to be treated by their primary care provider rather than an allergist, and with more patients than ever before, the demand for these services will continue for many years to come.
However, allergy ancillary services can increase risk, liability, and overhead as well, especially when self-managed. Physicians who provide testing and treatment are responsible for purchasing and storing concentrates on-site and are liable for product quality and safety in patient use so continual lab, storage, and inventory oversight is essential. The added costs, space, personnel, and materials this entails increases overhead and prevents you from realizing optimal profitability and growth.
