Qualitative Analysis of the Chattanooga, TN Asthma Pilot Program
Partners in Chattanooga recognized the opportunity to improve health outcomes locally through the design and implementation of a comprehensive asthma intervention program. In 2018, a feasibility study was conducted in partnership with the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) to assess the capacity of local providers to integrate in-home asthma education and trigger remediation services into the existing clinical care structure. Following the study, a core team representing healthcare, healthy housing, and local utility interests was formed to pilot services.
