Teens think they have asthma under control, but benefit from new approach to treatment
Date:5/6/2008

ians discussing asthma with patients every time they come for an office visit, even if those visits are scheduled for totally unrelated reasons.

Having regular, planned physician appointments to manage a childs asthma is an integral part of the chronic care model, said Greg Szumlas, M.D., a physician in the Division of General Pediatrics at Cincinnati Childrens and study co-author. Unfortunately, many patients dont always keep these appointments, so the planned opportunity for education of patient and parent is lost. We also know patients see their physicians for other acute problems, so we developed a system to capture these opportunities and turn them into what we call the unplanned planned asthma visits.

During these visit, patients undergo asthma control screening, condition assessment and receive education on asthma self-management. The visit is turned into an opportunity to assess and manage the patients asthma. Correct medications and effective self management result in an overall improvement in asthma quality measures and patient outcomes. In a study group of 230 asthma patients followed during the program, the researchers noted a 30-percent increase in patients with established asthma treatment action plans. The program also led to a 50-percent reduction in asthma hospitalizations and a 47 percent decrease in asthma related emergency room visits over a one-year period.
