CCAC Asthma Impact Model Program Study


The Asthma Impact Model (AIM) is a multi-component intervention strategy to improve the lives of Valley residents suffering with asthma by reducing triggers in the home and ensuring access to and proper use of asthma medications. AIM also supports patients by facilitating and reinforcing regular visits to a health care provider. AIM has been demonstrated to improve the management of asthma and reduce asthma emergencies among a high-risk Medi-Cal population in the region.

AIM Strategies

  • In-home environmental assessment and trigger remediation, health education, case management, testing and utilization review.

  • Develop partnerships with local Managed Care Organizations, agencies and clinicians.

  • Calculate and report intervention outcomes and costs, determine policy implications, assess feasibility of scaling, and develop specific policy goals for sustainability.
