Information and Communication Technology (ICT)- Based Centralized Monitoring System of Asthma Control

2017-11-07 00:20:11 | BioPortfolio


The aims of this study is to evaluation of the clinical efficacy and stability of Information and Communication Technology (ICT)- based centralized monitoring system of asthma control monitoring in asthma patients. We planed to enroll 100 asthma patients (50 subjects using ICT systems, 50 controls). We will monitor the asthma control status, lung function, exacerbation rate and stability of ICT systems.

This study is based upon work supported by the Ministry of Trade, Industry & Energy (MOTIE, Korea) under industrial Technology Innovation Program (No. 10059066, 'Establishment of ICT Clinical Trial System and Foundation for Industrialization').


This study has a multi- center, open- label, prospective and randomized clinical trial design. One hundred asthma patients who fill out the informed consent form are registered and randomized 1:1 into the ICT-based centralized clinical trial monitoring group (n=50) or the ambulatory follow-up group (n=50). The planned follow-up duration is 6 months. he ICT-based centralized clinical trial monitoring group is given home based spirometry and connecting system (gateway) equipped with personal identification system. Fingerprint registration is required in advance, so that it would be used for authentication before each use of spirometry. Symptom score and lung functions (FEV1, PEFR) obtained from gateway is saved, monitored, and sent out via a home-monitoring system. In the ICT-based centralized clinical trial monitoring group, feedback is sent to both patients and medical staff in the form of texts if there is a worsening of symptoms score and/or lung function.

Subjects are to make office visits after randomization at 4, (8), 12, (16, 20), and 24 weeks. (ICT group will not visit at the schedules in the brackets) Each visit requires measurement of Questionnaire (ACQ) lung functions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.

Method for assessing flow through a system by injection of a known quantity of dye into the system and monitoring its concentration over time at a specific point in the system. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Method for assessing flow through a system by injection of a known quantity of radionuclide into the system and monitoring its concentration over time at a specific point in the system. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

A mechanism of communication within a system in that the input signal generates an output response which returns to influence the continued activity or productivity of that system.

Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
