Summary

App developed with Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients, with input from the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations from the design stage, to enable them to:
. track and monitor symptoms using a validated measurement tool
. track and monitor drug usage
. gain an overview of patterns in how well treatment appears to work
. review results in clear graphs
. receive reminders to take medication, and record symptoms
. review answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Chronic Rhinosinusitis and its treatments

People with CRS can also choose to use the app to:
. share results with their clinicians
. share anonymised, coded data with EUFOREA to gain insights into the experiences of patients with chronic sinusitis, and effectiveness of current treatments.

The app was developed with patient input by EUFOREA (European forum for research and education in allergy and airway diseases), whose activities include advocacy for patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS).

Reviews

Reviewer: Sven Seys, EUFOREA (European forum for research and education in allergy and airway diseases)
Review: “The app has been created by a multi-stakeholder approach. This means that from the design to the development, and also the dissemination, we have involved patients, medical experts, primary care physicians, pharmacists and also people from the ehealth community to brainstorm and consider how we would like to develop this app…We created an educational platform based on Frequently Asked Questions by patients.”

Reviewer: Sven Seys, EUFOREA (European forum for research and education in allergy and airway diseases)
Review: “This app allows patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis to monitor their symptoms over time, receive feedback about disease control and share it with their treating physician.

Thereby the patient might be better adherent to therapy and as such have improved disease control by using the app. In addition, the app contains an educational platform with information about the disease, diagnosis and treatment. This will increase awareness of the patient about their disease, which might also contribute to compliance to therapy.”
