Abstract

Telephone coaching and a monetary incentive significantly increased the proportion of low-income urban parents who brought their children for asthma-planning visits, and decreased asthma symptoms shortly after asthma ED visits. The intervention did not increase subsequent asthma-planning visits or decrease ED visits or hospitalizations.
