The purpose

The objective of our program is to evaluate the effect of home health nurse intervention and education on hospital admissions, ER utilization and asthma control of Passport asthma patients. The investigators hypothesize that case management and in home education by nurses will decrease hospitalizations and ER asthma visits and improves disease control in our population. Our clinic population consists of primarily inner-city, low income, medicaid recipients. This population suffers from severe asthma much more than the typical pediatric population. Asthma remains the most frequent cause of hospital admission for our patient population. Home health nurse asthma education and home visits have been reported to reduce asthma triggers in the home and improve asthma control. The unique partnership between the pediatrician and the home health nurse will give us a better understanding of the health needs for this population, will improve quality of care and deliver more cost effective care.
