Technology and education for asthma management

Nearly three million Californians struggle with asthma, a chronic lung disease with no cure. Daily prevention and control of symptoms is essential; if left unmanaged, serious asthma attacks require emergency care, and can even be fatal.

 Despite this risk, only 40 percent of adult asthma sufferers in California have received a management plan from their healthcare provider.  In addition to causing nearly 400 deaths in California every year, asthma places a financial burden upwards of $1 billion on California’s health care system .

Mobile technology combined with community-based interventions can reduce costs and improve asthma management, helping people lead healthier, more productive lives.  By combining clinical protocols with a mobile inhaler, a basic cell-phone app and an online platform, Project T.E.A.M.  reaches patients where they are through a tool they already use daily. The  program collects personal and locational data to help patients and health care providers track asthma triggers and symptoms.
