The study aims at providing information on how the Short Message Service (SMS) tool influences self-management in asthma patients and to assess the resulting health related effect. A wide range of models and theories exist in the compliance area, such as technical models, communication models, cognitive models and self-management models and theories. The use of some of these theories and models will serve as theoretical and explanatory tools for studying how and why the SMS tool influences the patient's self-management.
The objective of this study is to assess the health-related effects of a SMS compliance and monitoring system for optimized asthma treatment in a controlled trial setting.
