Asthma Health by Mount Sinai

Asthma Health had one of the most stringent consents — making you complete a quiz just to make sure you had read the consent documentation before using the app (same for the mPower Parksinsons app).

The app helps you get better insight into your asthma, adhere to your treatment plans, and avoid triggers. The app has videos that educate patients on proper inhaler technique and you can watch videos on effective asthma management.

A potential issue of this app is the location function that could drain battery life quickly if the app pings your phone too often.

Key features: Ability to see local air quality and medication reminders. App will get Spirometry information stored in your Health app as well provide a more nuanced understanding of how your pulmonary physiology is doing in relation to medications and locations.
