“With your help we at patientMpower have developed an electronic health diary (an “app”) which can be used by people with lung fibrosis to help them keep track of their symptoms and lung health.
The patientMpower app works on any smartphone or tablet device (like an iPad). The idea is that you use your mobile phone to keep a diary of various symptoms and other factors related to your lung health. For example, you can keep track of the number of steps walked each day or your level of breathlessness. If you have a connected spirometer, the breathing test information will also be recorded and the app can be used as a reminder to take your medicines each day. When attending clinic appointments, it may be useful to have this type of information to hand so you can tell the doctor or nurse about issues that may have been troubling you.
“A group of ILFA volunteers have tested the app with home spirometry in a user experience survey and given us useful feedback on their experience of the app. patientMpower want to thank these volunteers for their help in guiding us on how we can improve the app and its use with measurement devices (like home spirometers).”
