Ancillary services refer to the health care services provided exclusive of room and board. Ancillary Services plays such a pivotal role in the health industry, that Without it, medical practitioners would not be able to function effectively.
Ancillary services can be classified into two categories:
- Diagnostic services are a broad range of tests that are essential to the basic management of patient care, allowing physicians to detect disease earlier, make diagnoses, prescribe therapies, and monitor patient results.
- Therapeutic services are a broad range of health care services that help to restore or maintain a patient’s health.
Diagnostic Ancillary Services:
Therapeutic Ancillary Services:
Where Are They Located?:
Ancillary services are located mainly in three facilities: hospitals, medical offices and free-standing sites. The hospital pharmacy is a therapeutic ancillary service. If your physician checks the level of triglycerides in your blood in his office lab, he is using a diagnostic ancillary service. The third common place in which ancillary services are provided is a free-standing setting. A group of speech pathologists can operate an ancillary service practice in a medical office building. A pharmacy is the anchor service in a drug store.
