abstract

  • Among children with food-induced anaphylaxis, within 1¬†year postdischarge from the ED or hospital, concordance was higher for EAI prescription fills than for allergist/immunologist visits. Subsequent ED visits/hospital stays for anaphylactic events were low. More research is needed to identify barriers between recommendations and physician/patient behaviors, as well as the impact of not following the recommendations on patient outcomes and healthcare costs.
