Pitt County Memorial Hospital (PCMH) of North Carolina partnered with private, hospital, and ECU physicians as well as Pitt County Schools, the American Lung Association, other health care providers, and various community representatives to form Pediatric Asthma Steering Committee. After a successful twelve week pilot program, a comprehensive Pediatric Asthma Services program was developed in September 1996.  

This program provides services that range from basic asthma education to intensive case management in an effort to maximize children's asthma management and assist with their continuity of care. Three case managers provide services for children with asthma throughout the continuum of care to include home, school, hospital and primary care provider visits.  

Many advancements have been made in pediatric asthma management in Pitt County, including reductions in inpatient admissions, inpatient costs, 12 month inpatient recidivism rates, emergency department utilization, school absences for moderate asthmatics, and school absences for severe asthmatics.
