ATLANTA — Both pediatricians and allergists demonstrated improved quality of care for patients with asthma and anaphylaxis following web-based education program, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

“We found that our quality improvement could be helped by having a web-based educational program available through a webinar database, which is very convenient and allows us to reach more providers,” Irum Noor, DO, from Winthrop University Hospital, told Infectious Diseases in Children. “Through this program, health care providers can improve care for patients with asthma and anaphylaxis, as well as access resources and compile data. Instead of calculating the data ourselves, these programs are able to do that for us so that we know what areas we need to work on.”
