Patient Initiated Journey

Asthma

Increase capacity, identifying patients that need your attention

Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease requiring ongoing medical management. Currently, patients with asthma have a follow-up appointment approximately every 6 months. Most of the times, patients will be fine when they have their follow-up appointment. However, it does not mean that they can not have an acute episode in a short period of time. Thus, it would be better if patients could have their appointment when they need it, instead of the date that is scheduled by default.
