Partnering with the Mass General Physicians Organization (MGPO), the Pediatric Asthma Initiative is in place at all MGH HealthCare Centers and MGH Pediatric Group Practices. Asthma coordinators identified at each practice site are trained to use the MGH Pediatric Asthma Registry connected with the MGH Longitudinal Medical Records (LMR). The Registry can perform the following tasks:
- Show asthma on Problem List- Track and document Flu shots- List the patient's next appointment as scheduled- Track development of an Asthma Action Plan (AAP) in LMR for each completed AAP to be saved as a note, to auto-populate key data fields, and to be printed in Spanish if needed
