The EVALIA Asthma Symptoms Profiler is now available from Medicom Health Interactive. This is the second in a series of lung disease symptoms assessments, preceded last month with the EVALIA Asthma Symptoms Profiler for Children.
Asthma affects nearly 19 million adults,1 and in 2009 it accounted for close to 2.1 million emergency room visits.2 The EVALIA Asthma Symptoms Profiler allows adults with asthma to assess the severity of their symptoms or the quality of their symptom control, and it identifies their allergies and non-allergic triggers. Consumers receive a symptom assessment based on their answers along with important information about managing asthma symptoms.
- Improve patient outcomes – Motivating patients to take an active role in their healthcare facilitates better health management, resulting in better patient outcomes.
- Reduce cost of care – Assessing symptoms online and providing consumers with important health information can reduce doctor or ER visits and drive down the cost of care.
- Target symptomatic patients – Sending targeted messages to patients whose symptoms are not adequately managed may prevent the onset of serious complications.
Since each person reacts differently to the factors that may trigger an episode, the profiler assesses both common allergies and non-allergic asthma triggers. From the self-reported information, the user will receive an assessment of their symptom severity or control as well as helpful information and recommendations about treatment options.
The EVALIA Asthma Symptoms Profiler uses guidelines published in 2007 by the United States National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, which emphasize the importance of good asthma control. Recommendations for managing asthma include guidance on medications, recommendations for patient education, and advice for controlling environmental factors that can trigger symptoms.
