Researchers at the University of Delaware (UD) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison developed a health information system to help asthma patients better manage their condition.
Every time a patient uses their inhaler, the Smart Asthma Management (SAM) system is alerted via a Bluetooth sensor, which sends inhaler usage data to the patient's smartphone, then to a server where the data goes through the SAM algorithm.
The algorithm considers individual factors affecting inhaler use like demographics and individual patient sensitivity to environmental factors.
UD's Junbo Son said the results of the research indicate the SAM system is more likely to detect dangerous increases in inhaler use more quickly than patients report (or realize) them.
