WMAR-2 News

Nationwide, there are 14M missed school days/year due to asthma. In Baltimore City, pediatric asthma prevalence is ~20%, with especially high hospitalization rates. Listen to one of our pediatric asthma participants report on her experience with emocha’s program.

The emocha program helped us do everything on a schedule so we wouldn’t forget this morning or tomorrow night… which is something that would happen and Elajah would be the one to suffer from it.

Program Opportunities & Value

Improve technique & motivation

94% of patients do not use inhalers correctly, and require multiple education sessions to confirm proper technique. emocha’s daily video check-ins help correct improper technique, and give patients increased motivation when they understand the correlation between technique and efficacy.

Decrease hospitalizations & ER visits

Poor inhaler technique has been proven to increase exacerbations, thus resulting in higher utilization and ER visits.

Increase clinical & quality metrics

emocha ensures patients take every dose, improving MMA and MPR: both of which are important HEDIS measures. Patients maintain their medication for at least 75% of their treatment, and the ratio of controller meds to total asthma medications is at least .50 during the measured year.

Optimize staffing efficiencies

emocha’s clinical team can handle 96% of reported issues internally. During a program with 331 total technique issues identified, only 11 issues were escalated back to the provider for further assessment.
