Development of an Asthma Clinic at an Outpatient Family Medicine Site

Project Location/Site: St. John's Well Child & Family Center
Key Outcomes:
1. Data analysis & clinical shadowing revealed almost 6000 patients with asthma at SJ. 2. Majority patient charts did not contain the ACT, Asthma template, or Asthma Action Plan demonstrating areas of weakness in diagnosis, management, & education of patients. 3. We presented data & findings to SJ leadership to help encourage providers to use asthma template & ACT to improve management & diagnosis. 4. After examination of the asthma patient population, we provided feedback and deliverables to SJ to aid in the implementation of an asthma specialty clinic.
