Open Door Family Medical Centers recognized Asthma as a prevalent chronic condition in the School-Based Health Centers. They saw an opportunity to improve asthma management and control by utilizing visit planning reports, order sets, templates, clinician pay-for-performance, asthma action plans and asthma care registries. As a result, Open Door Family Medical Centers was able to improve classification, treatment and percentage of patients with asthma action plans, which led to reduced missed school days, improved control and increased revenue from DSRIP projects. The organization was able to give patients and caregivers tools to better manage asthma while reducing manual tasks performed by staff and their overtime pay.
