breatheAgain transforms the current methods for the self-management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), from a generic paper-based approach, to one that is dynamic and personalized.
The mobile app (currently optimized for iOS) enables patients to manage their exacerbations more efficiently and effectively. breatheAgain incorporates techniques used by respiratory educators, such as education around proper use of inhalers, to help patients identify and control their exacerbations. As a “digital educator”, breatheAgain enables patients to independently identify changes in their breathing, learn techniques based on their unique medications, and highlights key activities of the patient’s COPD action plan.
Together, these features support the individual in the self-management of their COPD, whether it be knowing which medications to take at the right time, or booking an appointment with their healthcare provider for additional management.
• Exacerbation recommendation based on the Canadian Thoracic Society’s action plan
• Conversational interface using a chatbot
• Patient reported outcomes of changes in breathing and sputum
• Location detection and air quality prediction
