Asthma Disease Management

McLaren Health Plan's asthma disease management program is a comprehensive program that begins with early identification of the asthmatic member, and through patient education and monitoring, promotes improved outcomes. The emphasis of the program is on self-management and coordination with the primary care physician (PCP).

PCPs receive notification of new members admitted to the program. Program goals include emphasis on use of peak flow meters, asthma trigger education, and achievement of regular use of inhaled anti-inflammatory agents. Ongoing individualized contacts with the member are conducted on an as needed basis to ensure understanding of treatment plans, promotion of the preventive measures and stabilization of the disease progression.
