Using Mobile Phones to Better Understand Asthma


We propose to recruit 20 adolescents (ages 13-17) with persistent asthma and their caregiver from the UF Health Pediatric Pulmonary Clinic.  Participants will complete questionnaires either prior to or following a scheduled clinic visit. Adolescents will also enroll in EMA data collection. EMA data will be collected for three weeks. We will obtain information about asthma medication regimen, asthma control, severity, and history of asthma-related hospitalizations from the medical chart.
