Step 1: Skin Allergy Testing
When a patient presents with allergies, the next step may be a skin-scratch allergy test. With the Turnkey Service, your practice fills and maintains your own test trays with supplies purchased at a discounted price because of synAllergy volume agreements with suppliers. Including patient wait time and the completion of the test report, the entire testing process only takes about 25 – 30 minutes. Patients are tested for environmental allergies—customized for the region your practice is located in as well as food allergies optionally.
Step 2: Provisioning
After testing, if immunotherapy is prescribed, the practice would enter the test results into the synAllergy web-based portal. Based on the type of therapy ordered (injection or sublingual), we will provide a customized provisioning formula for your patient’s immunotherapy and you prepare that provision in your office. Refrigerated until the patient’s immunotherapy appointment, you don’t have to worry about shipping or formulation delays allowing to provide the therapy quickly once ordered.
Patients will return for injections on a periodic basis or for sublingual therapy a 3 month supply will be sent home with the patient.
Step 3: Immunotherapy
For patients receiving subcutaneous therapy synAllergy provides an injection schedule for your patient. Injections are typically administered by a nurse, MA or LPN, according to the injection schedule. The patient waits for only 15 minutes for post-injection observation and can continue with their day! We recommend injections are given between 2 to 10 days apart for the ‘Buildup Phase’. Once completed, patients can move into ‘Maintenance Phase’ with injections eventually spreading to 4 weeks apart.
Patients receiving Sublingual therapy will receive a 3 month supply of the serum in a dropper bottle to be self administered 3 times a day orally.
