Allergy & Asthma Associates of Northern California Company Profile

Asthma patients may be treated by primary care physicians, by asthma specialists, or by a combination of health care providers. Until recently, the question of who achieves the best outcomes at less cost has been poorly answered with miscellaneous data, anecdotal evidence, untested assumptions and educated guesses. A growing number of published clinical data states that the involvement of specialists in asthma improves patient outcomes and lowers costs. This conclusion has important implications for patients and for health care decision makers, particularly in managed health care. When managed aggressively, asthma is more likely to result in fewer hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and missed work and school days. The cost of hospitalizations alone accounts for more than half of all expenditures for asthma. Estimates show that more than 80% of all resources expended for asthma treatment are used by 20% of patients whose disease is not adequately controlled
