“This will help clinical commissioning groups to understand the outcomes of asthma care”

Public Health England has launched INHALE Asthma Data Tool – a one-stop portal for clinicians and commissioners containing data on asthma collected from all over the UK – with the aim of dealing with concerns over the variation in care quality and the different ways that patients are diagnosed and treated across the country.

According to its website, the tool “is a web-based portal that pulls together national asthma data and complements the INHALE Respiratory Data Tool which was released in February 2013… It draws together a range of thirteen asthma-related indicators from primary and secondary care .”

This data is then displayed in the form of interactive maps and charts.

According to Emily Humphreys, head of policy and public affairs at Asthma UK: “It’s great to see the publication of more information about asthma care and outcomes around the country.

“As well as giving us a fascinating insight, we’re hoping this will really help clinical commissioning groups to understand the outcomes of asthma care in their area and make sure everyone with asthma is getting support they need to prevent asthma attacks.”

It is estimated that one in 14 people in England have asthma.
