CAir: Mobile-health intervention for COPD patients
In this paper, we report on a mobile-health intervention study for COPD patients. Mobile devices are used to continuously record relevant patient symptoms, such as lung function, cough intensity, sputum color, vital-signs and activity. Furthermore, behavioral support is provided by a bi-directional communication channel and virtual assistant communication. The goal is to train a predictive algorithm to prevent exacerbations and to provide personalized virtual coaching to improve medication adherence and activity level.
