Geisinger, AstraZeneca partner to create new asthma app suite

Geisinger, an integrated health services organization, and AstraZeneca have partnered to improve asthma care by creating a suite of products that integrate into the electronic health record (EHR). The goal is to engage patients and providers in co-managing the disease, especially during intervals between office visits.

The mobile app data is connected to a real-time, web-based application called Provider Asthma Management Assistant. The assistant combines EHR and patient-reported data feeds to enable asthma educators and respiratory therapists to triage patients on the fly and bring in specialists as needed.

The new asthma app suite includes a mobile app that allows patients to view asthma-related weather forecasts, log symptoms and asthma triggers, establish medication reminders, track health status over time, and, crucially, communicate with their healthcare team.

  • Uniqueness of the asthama apps
    Some asthma patients can have multiple attacks per week, and it isn’t feasible or necessary to see a doctor every time. With the new app products, attacks and symptoms can be tracked and easily monitored in real-time by the full spectrum of the health care team.
