'How Are You Today?' is an innovative new smartphone app, developed as part of a partnership between the Lancashire Care National Health Services Foundation Trust and Intelesant, that is designed to make it easier for people to manage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD symptoms.
The app contains a primary interface that users can use to input and track their symptoms. The app's technology takes into account the potential danger, persistence and intensity of symptoms before making recommendations on how you can manage your COPD symptoms to alleviate suffering. The app also allows you to share your information with trusted individuals and caregivers, and supports in-app messaging.
'How Are You Today?' is a fine example of how app-based interfaces can support health-based communication and information flow.
