Our platform is proven to improve the outcomes that matter most to you.

In chronic respiratory care, medication monitoring provides enhanced visibility into adherence, which is critical for improving patient outcomes.Chen et al. Passive Monitoring of Short-Acting Beta-Agonist Use via Digital Platform in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Quality Improvement Retrospective Analysis. JMIR Form Res, 2019

Objective insights can help clinicians identify patients who may be at risk for an exacerbation and prompt timely interventions, reducing unnecessary hospitalizations and ED visits.Busse et al. Insights from the AUSTRI study on reliever use before and after asthma exacerbations. J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract, 2022
