Breathe Easy at Home​ is a referral system allowing doctors, nurses, or other health professionals to refer their patients with asthma who live in Boston for a home inspection, conducted by the Boston Inspectional Services Department (ISD). ISD inspectors enforce the state sanitary code for housing in Boston. The ISD inspectors are trained to identify asthma triggers that are covered by the state sanitary code. Through Breathe Easy at Home, ISD inspectors work with the property owners to eliminate poor housing conditions
