Pediatric Asthma Control is the Goal

Take Advantage of No-Cost Assistance from Quality Insights


Practices that treat children often see many patients with asthma on a daily basis.  Like most clinicians, your resources are limited and you need to maximize your resources.

Quality Insights, under an agreement with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Health, and funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), offers NO COST ASSISTANCE to eligible Federally Qualified Health Centers, health care systems and independent private practices to improve individual patient care and overall population health for asthma.  The goals of the initiatives are to assist sites in the prevention and treatment of exacerbations for patients with asthma.  Download the project flyer to learn more.
