Asthma-Friendly Primary Care Providers
FAC gives Healthcare providers an opportunity to partner with local and state stakeholders to help reduce the statewide burden of asthma. By working together and taking the steps to be recognized as an Asthma-Friendly Provider, practices promote the use of an effective asthma management program that will allow patients to monitor and control their asthma.
In addition, evidence supports a decrease in unscheduled visits, as well a reduction in hospitalizations, emergency department visits and missed days of school and/or work for those patients who underwent comprehensive asthma self-management.
The Asthma-Friendly Provider Application and Asthma-Friendly Application Guide will be available soon!
