Summary

Aims to help people with asthma (aged over 12) to manage their condition. Contains information, tips, and reminders about asthma. An ‘Asthma control test’ and monitoring chart let the user record and review progress. Individual feelings about asthma can be added and charted in a ‘Visual diary’. An ‘Environment dashboard’ allows the user to consider the potential asthma triggers of atmospheric-pressure levels, local pollen and pollution levels, and temperature. The user can receive informational notifications based on a personalised profile. Reports about progress can be emailed to healthcare professionals.

Reviews

Reviewer: Education for Health, UK
Review: “Education for Health’s Chief Executive, Monica Fletcher, was one of a panel of asthma experts who helped develop the app, lending her expert knowledge to its design. The app aims to empower asthma patients, allowing them to better understand their condition, and address the personal barriers they face in managing asthma. As such, the app can generate tailored messages, and will facilitate more informed dialogue between patients and healthcare professionals.”
