US ENT Partners Announces Strategic Relationship With AAOA

by Keith E. Matheny, M.D., F.A.R.S. via LinkedIn

US ENT Partners, a Group Purchasing Organization bringing cost-savings, new revenue streams, and business efficiency to Otolaryngology, Allergy, Facial Plastic Surgery, & Sleep Medicine practices nationwide, is thrilled to announce our strategic relationship with the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA)!

The AAOA, one of the largest societies within all of the Ear Nose & Throat space representing 2,700 physicians & healthcare providers, works to advance the comprehensive management of allergy and inflammatory disease in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery through training, education, and advocacy.

Through this relationship with US ENT, all AAOA members in good standing will have access to all USENT suppliers.

ALK-Abelló, Inc., USENT’s primary allergy partner, is a global, research-driven pharmaceutical company that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of allergies. ALK is far & away the worldwide leading supplier for allergy immunotherapy, and will be instrumental in delivering value to AAOA members.

ALK is one of USENT’s earliest, and staunchest, partners.

Dr. Robert Puchalski, Otolaryngologist in Columbia, South Carolina, sitting on the AAOA Board of Directors and Socioeconomic Chair, comments “the economic climate in private practice has become less hospitable. Smaller- and medium-sized practices without sufficient economies of scale cannot demand discounts for medical supplies. To make matters worse, their patients often bear the brunt of supply delays and shortages. This new relationship allows AAOA member practices to punch above their weight class as they fight for their patients”.

Dr. Doug Dawson, President of the AAOA, states “this GPO opens up vistas for our members and is a terrific new member benefit.”

As CEO of USENT, I am very excited about this arrangement between US ENT & the AAOA, which brings the synergy of two large organizations passionate about the efficacious, cost-effective delivery of healthcare, to patients suffering from upper airway inflammation due to environmental & food allergies. This is truly a win-win for patients and physicians alike!
