WEST PALM BEACH, FL, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QHSLab, Inc. (OTCQB: USAQ) a company focused on providing clinicians with tools to leverage proactive, value-based healthcare solutions through emerging point of care technologies, projects a new $90 million annual addressable market for the Company’s latest product, the Allergy Quick Test, branded AllergiQT™.
Recently obtained data indicates an attractive market opportunity awaits the Company’s latest allergy skin test device, the AllergiQT™ – Quick Test, a simple in office allergy test designed specifically for primary care. The test is administered on the forearms so there is no need for the patient to undress, no drawing of blood, and the results are available in 15 minutes or less.
As of early May 2022, there were some 30,699 family medicine, pediatrician and non-allergy specialist physicians regularly ordering allergy blood tests. Based on our considerable experience with our AllergiEnd® Test, we believe a broad segment of the PCP market would be interested in a simplified allergy test system like the Allergy Quick Test. Laboratory blood tests are costly, ranging from $220 to over $500 and they don’t offer the physician any reimbursement for performing the test. The AllergiQT™ – Quick Test will cost an insurance company less than $100 per test and the doctor’s office bills and receives the reimbursement for performing the test without the need for a laboratory. The resulting reimbursement is much needed income for primary care practices.
The AllergiQT™ – Quick Test replaces the need for blood testing with a simple skin scratch test performed in the physician’s office during a routine office visit. Patients and doctors no longer have to wait for lab test results, no needles are needed to extract blood, and skin testing provides more sensitive findings for physicians to begin evidence-based treatment. The virtually pain free procedure measures in a matter of minutes the actual reaction to the allergen, not just antibodies in the blood, this shows the physician exactly how the immune system is reacting when the patient comes into contact with the environmental or food allergens that are being tested.
AllergiQT™ – Quick Test provides allergen screening for the most common allergens, including cat, dog, dust, cockroach, mold, shellfish, nuts, milk, egg, grasses, weeds and trees.
There are over 250,000 independent primary care physicians in the US targeted for this product and more than 60 million allergy suffering patients each year suggesting the addressable market for QHSLab’s allergy product line is even much larger than current data suggests.
“This is true value-based care, lowering healthcare costs and providing information needed to help improve patient outcomes.” states Troy Grogan, President and CEO at QHSLab, Inc.
Key aspects of the AllergiQT™- Quick Test include:
Targeting non-allergy specialists in primary care settings.
$90 million addressable current annual market.
The AllergiQT™ test is minimally-invasive and can be easily administered during an office visit.
Two multiple head test applicators are placed on the forearms of a patient during a routine physical examination. Results in 15 minutes.
NO MORE NEEDLES!
The twenty-allergen allergy skin test kit includes a broad spectrum of environmental and food allergens.
Within 15 minutes, if the patient has any allergic reactions, the physician can easily identify the allergen and offer a prescription remedy to begin treatment during the same office visit, there is no waiting for lab test results.
Lower costs for insurance companies and new reimbursements for primary care physicians.
AllergiQT™ quick test results offer physicians the ability to employ evidence-based medicines that treat the cause of allergies, not merely the symptoms, by providing prescription medicines formulated to overcome the source of the allergic reaction.
