Adolescent Preferences and Design Recommendations for an Asthma Self-Management App: Mixed-Methods Study.

08:00 EDT 13th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Adolescent Preferences and Design Recommendations for an Asthma Self-Management App: Mixed-Methods Study."

Approximately 10% of adolescents in the United States have asthma. Adolescents widely use apps on mobile phones and tablet technology for social networking and gaming purposes. Given the increase in recreational app use among adolescents, leveraging apps to support adolescent asthma disease management seems warranted. However, little empirical research has influenced asthma app development; adolescent users are seldom involved in the app design process.
