By providing effective care, we deliver services based on the most current scientific knowledge to all patients who can benefit from these services and refrain from providing services to patients who are not likely to benefit. Some examples of effectiveness measures include:
- Relieving pain without harmful side effects.
- Managing blood sugar levels in diabetes patients to keep them healthy and out of the hospital and to keep their diabetes under control.
- Maintaining lung function in patients with Cystic fibrosis to prevent lung infection, inflammation, and hospitalization.
- Controlling childhood asthma through the use of relievers, systemic corticosteroids, and good discharge and home management plans.
