High Baseline ER rates and Adults/Kids

I have two questions for you:

1.) I was surprised to see the high health care utilization rates at baseline for the people enrolled in the intervention.  Did I understand correctly that 68% of people who participated in this program had visited the ER for an asthma related event in the 6 months prior to starting the program?Do you think this rate was unusually high?  Or typical of kids/adults living in public housing units with asthma?

2.) Do you think that your evaluation was equally effective for adults and children?  Would you recommend this type of model more for one group or the other?

Thanks for the great webinar!
