Community of Coaches Helping (COACH)

care team

Despite having a well-defined set of treatment guidelines for managing asthma, we are not improving the control of this chronic disease. Our COACH program is a patient-centric approach to managing your asthma. A patient-centric approach allows patients to have better access to important healthcare treatment information.  This patient-centric approach allows patients to access asthma self-management information at their convenience, 24/7. In addition, patients can communicate with a member of our COACH team via technology including email, text, video, and even live video. It's important to note that this patient-centric approach does not take place of the patients' regular physician visits. Instead, patients are able to receive extended care that the physician approves and oversees for the patients.
