Gaps in kids’ care lead to increased ER visits, increased hospitalizations, reduced quality of life.
In children with asthma, illness severity can be poorly understood and ineffectively communicated to caregivers and clinicians. Treatment plans developed by physician are often paper copies or buried in an Electronic Health Record. Schools and other caregivers may miss worsening symptoms and the correct treatment responses as it’s very difficult for all the care providers (schools, community, parents/guardians, healthcare systems) to interact as a singular support community. This may be even worse for children with social determinants of health (SDOH) impacts. There is a desperate need for a system that supports kids by automatically captures symptom, key data, and optimal treatment plans. And then effectively and efficiently communicates with all the vested parties to improve outcomes.
