Research Project

Coordinated Healthcare Interventions for Childhood Asthma Gaps in Outcomes


Research Area(s)
Asthma Research


Funded by PCORI, The CHICAGO Plan was a collaborative effort between 12 Chicago based institutions, including the University of Illinois Hospital & Sciences System, Sinai Health System, Rush University Medical Center, John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, Lurie Children’s Hospital, University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Chicago Department of Public Health, Respiratory Health Association, Chicago Asthma Consortium, NorthShore University HealthSystem, and the Illinois Institute of Technology. This broad-based collaborative, including caregivers, patient advocacy groups, public health officers, and patient-centered outcomes researchers was dedicated to eliminating asthma health disparities. Drawing on collaborations that span nearly two decades, the CHICAGO Plan tested both provider- and patient-level interventions to improve clinically meaningful outcomes in a minority pediatric ED population with uncontrolled asthma. The CHICAGO Plan study has been completed.
