Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which the airways become swollen, causing reduced airflow to the lungs. When this happens it is hard to breathe. When symptoms are intense or additional symptoms appear, this is an asthma attack. There is no cure for asthma. Even when you feel fine, you still have the disease.

Care You Should Expect to Receive – High quality asthma care includes treatments and information to help control symptoms and decrease your risk for future asthma attacks.

Symptoms of asthma may include:

  • Coughing that gets worse at night and in the early morning
  • Chest tightness (like someone is sitting on your chest)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe)

How Will This Help Me? When patients receive high quality care, their asthma is under control and they can live a full and active life. They are less likely to experience symptoms and asthma attacks, or go to the hospital for treatment.


The Data:

The bar charts and percentages below will tell you how successful Minnesota physicians and other health care providers are in helping adults and children with asthma get all the care they need.

The Numbers – The average statewide for children is 49%, and 40% for adults. This means that nearly 5 out of 10 children and 4 out of 10 adults with asthma received care that included treatments to control their symptoms, reported fewer than two hospitalizations or emergency department visits, and received information about asthma and a written asthma plan.

High numbers signify high quality care. Your physician may have received a higher or lower rating depending on how many of their patients got the care they needed. It is important to know that small differences in these percentages don’t necessarily reflect the quality of care you will receive. It is important to look at the larger differences and talk with your physician if you have questions or concerns.

About Our Report – This report is based on information from medical records of patients with asthma between 5 and 50 years of age who went to the doctor for treatment of asthma at least two times between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
