(Salt Lake City) - An app that allows parents and doctors to monitor a child's asthma has a big impact on managing the disease. When families monitored symptoms with asthma Tracker and adjusted care accordingly, children had better asthma control and made fewer visits to the emergency department. Using the app also meant that children missed fewer days of school and parents took fewer days off work, improving quality of life. Results of the study were published online in the journal Pediatrics.
