Asthma is the fifth most costly disease in the U.S., estimated to cost over $50 billion annually. This large cost is due to the large number of hospitalizations, ER visits, and doctor’s office visits. Improving patient adherence to asthma medications would decrease these costs significantly by preventing most hospital and doctor’s office visits. AsthmaSense® is a free to download smartphone application available on both iTunes and Android marketplaces. AsthmaSense® will allow patients to record when they take their medications, as well as send them reminders to take their medications.
