Abstract / Description of output

Asthma monitoring is an important aspect of patient self-management. However, due to its repetitive nature, patients can find long-term monitoring te-dious. Mobile health can provide an avenue to monitor asthma without needing high levels of active engagement, and instead rely on passive monitoring. In our recent AAMOS-00 study, we collected mobile health data over six months from 22 asthma patients using passive and active monitoring technology, including smartwatch, peak flow measurements, and daily asthma diaries.
Compliance to smartwatch monitoring was found to lie between the compliance to complete daily asthma diaries and measuring daily peak flow. However, some study participants faced technical issues with the devices which could have af-fected the relative compliance of the monitoring tasks.
Moreover, as evidenced by standard usability questionnaires, we found that the AAMOS-00 study’s data collection system was similar in quality to other studies and published apps.
