I love the summer, but if you have allergies, it takes some of the fun away. In fact, allergies rank as the the sixth leading cause of illness in the United States!
Heal, the app disrupting the medical industry by bringing back house calls is offering the unique ability through doctor house calls to counsel on environmental factors contributing to allergies in the home.
Read on to learn more about this new innovation!
Patients are tested via a simple blood sample, with no skin pricks and no need for return visits for further testing, making it hassle-free, and convenient for the patient's schedule.
This moth, Heal announced that it will make advanced diagnostic allergic sensitization tests from Thermo Fisher Scientific available through its team of more than 110 licensed, vetted and qualified physicians. Heal makes healthcare more convenient and customized, in this case delivering better allergy care by offering state-of-the-art blood testing in the patient's home where Heal physicians can also see firsthand specific household and environmental allergens.
"As an allergy sufferer myself, I’m thrilled that Heal doctors are now first to conduct Thermo Fisher's allergic sensitization testing in the privacy of the patient's own home,” said Nick Desai, chief executive officer and co-founder of Heal.
“With Thermo Fisher, we’re combining state-of-the-art, easy blood testing with the added benefit of doctor's purview of the home environment. These elements combined enable doctors to better determine a more precise diagnosis, allergy causes, and treatment plan, than ever before.”
Accessible through a smartphone or computer, Heal provides vetted, qualified medical physicians to patients within two hours, 12 hours a day, 365 days a year. Since its inception less than three years ago, Heal has delivered more than 60,000 house calls across the U.S., and the company estimates this accounts for $41 million in healthcare cost savings.
Through its network of physicians, the company serves patients in California, within Los Angeles, Orange County, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, the Inland Empire and Silicon Valley, as well as in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. Heal plans to expand to New York, Boston and Seattle by the end of 2018. Patients can visit http://www.heal.com/allergy to schedule an appointment.
