Asthma Australia Education App
Project title: Australia’s first free Asthma Education App
Client: Asthma Australia
Project duration: 11 months
People with asthma can now have instant access to Asthma education and information at the tip of their fingers.
Asthma Australia, the national peak body for people with asthma, engaged ZEST Health Strategies to develop a user-friendly App for patients, carers and health professionals to access best-practice information on asthma.
The App, based on the popular ‘Asthma flipchart’, delivers education to patients about asthma self-management, symptoms, medications and triggers. It uses engaging animations, videos, tools and the latest evidence-based information.
From a cost perspective, the app removes the need for hardcopy printing and distribution – providing long term efficiencies.
What do users have to say about the App?
- ‘Wonderful app to teach patients’
- ‘Just what is needed to help patients understand their asthma’
- ‘I have just used the App with patients in our GP clinic. Very user friendly, easy to navigate and up to date asthma management.’
The App is available from the iTunes store here.
