The August 2014 issue of the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved is now available in print and online! The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved is happy to announce the most up-to-date JHCPU article focusing on Asthma Disparities.
This silver issue opens with a reflection on health care management in the U.S., including the impact of Asthma Disparities and how EHR use can improve health outcomes; an ACU provided column that discusses the electronic health record and the ability to capture data to identify patients with asthma, including status of asthma severity and control, number of asthma ED and hospitalization visits, medication use, and flu vaccine status. Use this link to see the table of contents for the issue. Or, you can download the full ACU Column to read more: “Addressing Asthma Disparities Using Clinical Decision Support in the Electronic Health Record.”
