Patient Portal Usage and Outcomes Among Adult Patients with Uncontrolled Asthma

ConclusionPatients with uncontrolled asthma used the portal irregularly if at all, despite in-person training. Usage was not associated with regular appointments or with clinical outcomes. Patient portals need modification to accommodate low-income patients with uncontrolled asthma.

We describe the potential benefits of existing asthma and COPD therapies in treating ACO patients, and the value of a “treatable traits” approach to ACO management. Throughout the review, we highlight some of the pressing, unanswered questions surrounding ACO that are relevant to the clinical community. Ultimately, addressing these questions is necessary if we are to improve clinical outcomes for this complex and heterogenous patient population.

The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that comorbid type 2 immune diseases confer protection against morbidity and mortality due to acute infection. Design: Retrospective cohort study of patients hospitalized with an acute infection between November 2008 and January 2016 using electronic health record data. Setting: Single tertiary-care academic medical center. Patients: Admissions to the hospital through the emergency department with likely infection at the time of admission who may or may not have had a type 2 immune-mediated disease, defined as asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, or f...

AbstractPurpose of this reviewTo highlight the evidence behind the various biologics that are being developed for asthma along with their specific targets in the inflammatory cascade and the potential role they serve in the management of allergic asthma.Recent findingsThe mainstay of asthma management for the majority of asthmatics is inhaled corticosteroids with or without long-acting beta-agonists and/or leukotriene modifiers and/or tiotropium. However, in the small group of individuals with severe asthma uncontrolled with conventional therapy, biologics have emerged as an effective therapeutic option.SummaryAsthma is a ...

Abstract Our climate has significantly changed, exceeding what the world has experienced over the last 650,000 years, and has been cited as the most significant health threat of the twenty-first century. Climate change is impacting health in unprecedented ways. While everyone is vulnerable to the health impacts associated with climate change, children are disproportionately affected because of their physical and cognitive immaturity. Climate change impacts that include rising temperatures, extreme weather, rising sea levels, and increasing carbon dioxide levels are associated with a wide range of health issues in ...

This study aimed to delineate the causal relation between GERD and asthma.MethodsParticipants of the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort 2002-2013 who were ≥ 20 years old were selected for this study. In study I, 116,502 GERD patients were matched in a 1:2 ratio to 233,004 control I participants, and the hazard ratio (HR) of asthma in GERD patients was analyzed. In study II, 104,146 asthma patients were matched in a 1:1 ratio to 104,146 control II participants, and the HR for GERD in asthma patients was analyzed. A stratified Cox-proportional hazards model was used. Subgroup analyses were per...
