Data Science & Technology Program Lowers Risks Associated with Asthma

New research from PCCI shows reduced impact asthma has on patients & hospitals in joint program with the Parkland Community Health Plan DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Seventeen months after implementation, PCCI has released new numbers for its predictive risk models for pediatric asthma utilization. These models, implemented at Parkland Community Health Plan (PCHP) beginning in April of 2015, seamlessly send best practice alerts to care providers through the Electronic Health Record to facilitate interventions. Moreover, providers are given periodic reports on their higher risk patients and on their own performance.
