Community-based care coordination effective for real world asthma management programs
Date:11/9/2011

WASHINGTON, DC -- Effective management of childhood asthma should extend beyond the doctor's office into communities, homes and schools where children spend most of their time dealing with the disease, according to a collection of newly published studies. A key to successful implementation of childhood asthma management programs in "real-world" settings is a community-based care coordination approach that combines evidence-based science, asthma education and community engagement. These findings from five asthma management programs funded by the Merck Childhood Asthma Network, Inc. (MCAN) were published as a supplement to the November issue of Health Promotion Practice, a Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) journal.

"Unfortunately, there is a gap between the care that children with asthma should receive and the care they actually receive one that clearly needs to be filled if we are to make progress in this area," said Leonard Jack, Jr., Ph.D., MSc, CHES, editor-in-chief, Health Promotion Practice. "Publication of these findings not only offers a rich resource for the healthcare and public health communities, it also confirms that community-centered approaches can be implemented in even the most challenging environments with great success."

In 2005, MCAN awarded $10 million in grants to five innovative childhood asthma programs to implement evidence-based interventions that targeted those most at risk low-income and medically underserved children to increase access to quality care and improve health outcomes. These programs were conducted in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York City and San Juan, Puerto Rico over a four-year period and mostly served children with poorly controlled asthma who had multiple emergency room visits and/or hospitalizations.

While the demographics and program delivery settings varied dramatically across sites, one common thread throughout was the use of a community-based car
