Sponsored by the Ontario Lung Association (OLA) and through investment from Canada Health Infoway’s Consumer Health Solutions Program, the University Health Network’s Centre for Global eHealth Innovation, OLA, clinical leads from Western University, Queen’s University, and TELUS Health Solutions worked collaboratively to develop a system to enhance asthma self-monitoring and self-management by integrating asthma data repositories with personal health records and the breathe application, a novel mobile health app that can provide the opportunity for people with asthma to engage in their individualized treatment plans in hopes of leading to better asthma control
Through consumer engagement, recognizing key elements of asthma and chronic disease self-management with clinical experts, as well as leveraging current mobile technology, it is envisioned that breathe will enable a person with asthma access to personal health information ‘on-the-go’ empowering them to self-manage anywhere, anytime. Furthermore, integrating with asthma clinics forms a collaborative environment between the individual, caregivers, and providers.
