Percent of Asthma Patients with Allergist/Immunologist Visit

New York Finger Lakes Region

Additional claims analysis for patients with asthma highlights a disparity in the use of specialist care. Compared to the Focus Area*, children in the rest of Monroe County were 3.5 times as likely to see an allergist/immunologist; and adults were 2.5 times as likely. Utilization of specialists in the other counties is lower than Monroe County, but much higher than the Focus Area.

The Focus Area consists of eight high-poverty ZIP codes in the city of Rochester with particularly high concentration of African-Americans and Latinos. See a map of the Focus Area here.
