MAAP Health Committee Reults

The asthma measures working group discussed which indicators, as health care providers, they track in their practice and their processes for tracking indicators. The working group listed the following measures:
- Asthma Control
- Tobacco Exposure
- Tobacco Intervention
- Pharmacy Therapies
- ED/ Inpatient and D/c plans
It was agreed that the work group would choose one process measure and one outcome measure to track.
