About app

Your Health Passport

The ‘Health Passport’ app enables you to put your personal asthma action plan directly onto your mobile phone, enabling you to track your symptoms, peak flow, and hospital visits. If your asthma is getting worse you spot it early and know when to seek help. In addition, the app integrates daily pollen counts, localised air pollution readings, and a weather tracker to enable you to identify external factors that may also contribute to your ill health, without you realising.

Your Health Passport features a range to tools to help you self manage your condition.

Keeping track of your symptoms and triggers can help you manage your condition better. Does stress bring on your asthma? Have your Peak Flows suffered?

It can be useful to keep an eye on your medication use. If you have asthma maybe you are forgetting to use your Preventer? Or maybe your Reliever use is creeping up?

Mood and exercise can both be implicated in how well your feeling about your condition. As well as traffic lighting mood and exercise you can add a personal note.

Feature

Health Plans like the Asthma UK Asthma Action Plan can make a huge difference to keeping you out of hospital and preventing flare ups. Having your action plan on your phone means you can keep to your agreed medication plan and try and avoid potential triggers.

In case of an Emergency your Crisis Plan will guide you or those looking after you what to do. You can also share your crisis plan from the App directly to a Teacher / Friend or Family member. Or anyone you want involved in your care.

Your data is stored securely in the Cloud allowing you to sync between devices such as a tablet and a phone. All your data (except the Crisis Plan) is encrypted on the device unlocked with your phone's fingerprint sensor or a passcode.

ASK Campaign

ASK about Asthma

This September, to coincide with the start of the new school year and the highest hospital admission rates for asthma (week 38), Healthy London Partnership and NHS England London are launching a public awareness campaign #AskAboutAsthma to encourage small steps to help improve the quality of life for children and young people living with asthma in London. #AskAboutAsthma The #AskAboutAsthma campaign will run from 11-22 September and our aims are:
  1. Each child and young people with asthma having an asthma management plan
  2. Each child and young people with asthma being able to use their inhalers effectively
  3. Each child and young people with asthma having an annual asthma review
The Healthy London Partnership have created a comprehensive resource called the asthma toolkit. The asthma toolkit aims to support healthcare professionals, schools, parents, carers, children and young people in London and we encourage you to explore the whole site. https://www.healthylondon.org/children-and-young-people/london-asthma-toolkit
