Children's Mercy Hospital and Clinics - KC CAMP - Kansas City
The asthma management program at Children's Mercy Family Health Partners uses a unique approach to manage this chronic disease. Our certified asthma educators form special relationships with the primary care physicians (PCP)to help them implement comprehensive asthma management in their offices leading to improved patient health and reduced costs. The program consists of physician office education, disease-specific health coaches, data analysis and reporting, access to environmental assessment, stratified interventions, and provider incentives. Our program has empowered the providers to empower their staff and patients to self manage. By integrating these elements into a comprehensive health management program, we demonstrated financial and clinical benefits, including reduction of health care utilization and increased provider satisfaction and patient quality of life.
