Asthmapolis is now Propeller Health
Asthmapolis, which provides mobile management for those with respiratory disease, is now Propeller Health, the company announced.
Propeller Health offers providers and customers mobile apps to manage asthma and COPD.
"COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States and an extremely costly disease, both in its actual medical costs and the impairments that limit patients with this illness. I believe using technology to help improve adherence and give clinicians early indications of increasing symptoms or exacerbations is valuable and will make an important contribution to helping people successfully manage the disease," said David Mannino, M.D., professor and chair, University of Kentucky Department of Preventive Medicine and Environment.
Propeller has snap-on sensors, mobile apps, analytics and personal services for consumers with respiratory diseases. The HIPAA-compliant solution uses remote monitoring to track when and how often patients use their inhaled medications, the company said.
