Community-Wide Health Care Delivery for Children with Asthma

​Title: ​​Evaluation of the Colorado Asthma Toolkit Program in Primary Care using SAFTINEt Data
Summary: Asthma is one of the most common chronic health conditions and can generally be well controlled through appropriate monitoring and management, yet many primary care providers do not follow NHLBI’s asthma management guideline, resulting in poor asthma outcomes. This project will study asthma outcomes in primary care practices that participated in a program designed to give providers working with poor and minority patients the tools to follow guidelines for asthma care. By helping us to understand how to improve asthma care for patients in greatest need, this project can help to promote better health outcomes for patients with asthma.
