Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the role of using electronic sensors for asthma inhaler devices in monitoring medication adherence and asthma control

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Asthma Behavioral: Electronic sensor and OW education Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This study will assess the feasibility of using electronic sensors for asthma inhalers in a population of urban minority adults and children with moderate-severe asthma in the Bronx.

Investigators will also assess differences in asthma outcomes (specifically asthma control as a primary outcome measure) and treatment adherence in a group of participants with moderate-severe asthma who use inhalers with electronic sensors and real-time remote outreach worker monitoring/feedback compared to a group of participants who use inhalers with electronic sensors but without real-time monitoring/feedback.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Electronic sensor and OW education
MDI sensor-generated alerts will be relayed and responded to (e.g. outreach worker contacts the participant for a missed dose) in real-time to the intervention group. Outreach worker will also assess intervention group participants' need for further asthma education and provide asthma education over the phone
Behavioral: Electronic sensor and OW education
MDI sensor-generated alerts will be relayed via app platform on participant's phone and responded to (e.g. outreach worker contacts the patient for a missed dose) in real-time to the intervention group. Outreach worker will also assess intervention group participants' need for further asthma education and provide education over the phone

No Intervention: Usual Care
Usual care group will receive the electronic tracker but the sensor-generated alerts will not be delivered. If the usual care group rescue inhaler data reveals frequent use of rescue medication (daily use for >3 days) investigators will reach out (via app or phone call) to advise the participant to see their physician



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Asthma Control Test [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 6 months ]
    validated asthma control measure


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Medication adherence [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 6 months ]
    measured by electronic sensor

  2. Health care utilization [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 6 months ]
    ED visits and hospitalizations will be assessed via electronic health records
