Any Recommendations? - New Asthma Center

We are in the very grassroots stages of starting an Asthma Center in our medical center.  After our first meeting with physicians and nursing/Asthma Educators we have decided to start by indentifying our target patient population.  Any recommendations on where to start in building our program?

Congratulations on starting an Asthma Center! We suggest requesting a mentor through Asthma Community Network: http://www.asthmacommunitynetwork.org/resources/mentorform. We can pair you with an established program to help guide your growth.

I agree with the suggestion that you speak with other programs.  

We'd also recommend continuing your consultation with local partners, as different approaches seem to work best in different settings.  Identifying your target patient population and core metrics to track are key steps.
