What each measures to differentiate? Home visit not necessary, 1 visit needed, 5-9 visits, etc.

We request that at least one of the following criteria be met in order for us to take a referral and condcut a home visit:
¨Poorly-controlled persistent asthma
¨Hospital admission for asthma exacerbation in last 12 months
¨Repeated ER or urgent care visits for asthma in last 6 months
¨Overuse of rescue medication in last 6 months
¨More than one course of oral steroids in last 6 months
Concerns about home environmental triggers
Once a home visit has been conducted we presume to do 3 visits and a 6 month call. On occaision we determine that only one visit is appropriate in the case that a family is in a shelter or will not be able to complete the full program. However, we prioritize and prefer to conduct the full program.

With only one criteria and a presumed 3 visit minimum, I perceive a challenge for cost/benefit return on investment. How is your funding structured?
