CareSouth Carolina, Inc.'s Chronic Care Model of Care/Improvement's asthma program was implemented in 2001 to improve the health of members with asthma.

Members with asthma are identified and contacted by a Care Manager. The Care Manager with other health providers provide education in individual and group sessions. Topics include general asthma education, medication and peak flow meter use, triggers, and self-management skills. If the member is not improving then he/she is referred to a social worker and receives a home visit.

Evaluations to date indicate that the program has had a positive impact on several health outcomes, including healthcare utilization, school absences, work loss, symptoms, medication use, lung function, self-management skills, and use of an asthma action plan. The program is ongoing.
