Wyckoff Heights Medical Center Is First New York Hospital to Offer Asthmapolis Mobile Asthma Management Program
Date:3/19/2013

g a growing number of readmissions for asthma patients. "Our number one cause of readmissions for adults and children is asthma. It's higher than congestive heart failure or any other disease we treat," said Del Toro . "We want to close a major gap in communication and care. Now that they will be enrolled in the Breathe Easy Program with Asthmapolis, we can develop a better monitoring model for these children with asthma, and find a way to better treat their condition."

"This mobile program is going to allow us to do better follow-up with our families, give clearer instructions on how to take medications, and through more individual contact with the parents, help us understand why some children with asthma are bouncing back with frequent ER visits and admissions," said Dr. Patrisha Woolard-Pickens , attending pediatrician at Wyckoff.

The Breathe Easy Program will also feature coordinated services from the new pediatric outpatient center at Wyckoff. The center hosts a dedicated asthma treatment room, open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., to manage outpatient care specifically for children with asthma. This new approach to asthma care helps families avoid long hours in the ER and admissions to the hospital.

"Through Asthmapolis, we are going to have a better understanding of what happens once a child is discharged and prescribed medication," said Myra Ortiz , executive assistant at Wyckoff. "That's what we need, not just knowledge that they have an inhaler, but access to data to know whether or not they are using it. That will be a huge help in improving our level of care."

"Wyckoff's Breathe Easy Program will reveal valuable new information about the day-to-day burden and management of asthma that can be used immediately to help reduce the number of preventable asthma attacks, emergency room visits, hospitalizations and readmissions
