Extract

Asthma has consistently placed among the top five most frequent reasons for hospitalization among the enrollees of United HealthCare of Illinois and is the leading cause of pediatric inpatient admissions. In response to these findings, United HealthCare set about to design and implement an intervention to address the high rates and disproportionate costs of inpatient admissions for asthma. This report provides an overview of the efforts that United HealthCare of Illinois implemented to reduce asthma morbidity. A detailed report of this effort can be found elsewhere.1
