Spring 2017


Neighborhood has a program for our members with asthma called Breathe Easy. Members two years old or older are automatically enrolled in this program when identified through claims data as having persistent asthma.

All members in the program receive educational newslet­ters to help keep them informed on managing their asthma Members also have the option to access support from our nurses who provide health coaching. Health coaching includes education and informational materials to help your patient understand and manage their medications, be better self-managers of their asthma, and effectively plan for visits with their providers.

Our goal is to reinforce your treatment plan for the patient. Our nurses will notify you of your patient’s engagement; issues identi­fied during the assessment, and planned interventions. Periodic assessments of your patient’s health status are completed and you are contacted with any new concerns.

If you would like to refer your Neighborhood patients who have asthma for educational mailings or health coaching, please call us at 1-401-459-6020.
