University Hospitals strongly supports Premier’s proposal for the Phase 4 asthma trial. We are aware of the significant suffering and cost asthma imposes on communities we serve and are committed to supporting Premier in its efforts to document real-world effectiveness. This study should be led by an organization that is committed to the generation of real-world evidence and trusted by communities. Premier has the provider partnerships to engage and coordinate sites, and the experience and capability to collect real-world data and lead this asthma trial. I look forward to working with Premier and the study sponsor on this trial.
