Informing Policy to Implement Pediatric Family Engagement in Meaningful Use Stage 3
This study will enroll parents/guardians of children who receive treatment at one of the pediatric primary care practice settings in the Pediatric Research in Office Settings (PROS) network or at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Pediatric Research Consortium (PeRC) network.
The study will use an evidence-based conceptual model to study determinants of implementation success, implementation outcomes, and health care outcomes resulting from implementing an already functional, electronic health record (EHR)-linked asthma portal, MyAsthma. The study will measure the portal's feasibility and determine the impact on providing asthma education and fostering patient engagement as well as the ability to collect patient-reported outcomes for children, evaluate medication use and side effects and track parents' preferences and goals.

|Official Title:||Informing Policy to Implement Pediatric Family Engagement in Meaningful Use Stage 3|
- Difference Between Number of Families Who Adopted MyAsthma Portal Use and Number of Families With Sustained Use [ Time Frame: Up to 6 Months ]Implementation success was measure by comparing the of the number of enrolled families (parent/guardian) who logged on to the MyAsthma Portal once (adoption) with the number of enrolled families (parent/guardian) who logged on more than once (sustained use). Parents/guardians were asked to log on and complete the same survey on the MyAsthma Portal 3 times during a 6 month period.

Experimental: MyAsthma Web Portal
The portal, MyAsthma, will provide asthma education, collect patient-reported outcomes, evaluate medication use and side effects, and track parents' concerns and goals. Parents will log into the web portal each month (for a total of 3 portal visits in 6 months), and the information entered by parents will be shared through the electronic health record with the child's primary care provider.
Other: MyAsthma Web Portal
Parents will log on to the MyAsthma Web Portal up to three different times over a 6 month period. During each portal visit, parents will be asked to complete a survey which will include questions regarding their views on treatment preferences, goals, asthma control, and medications for their child with asthma.
