We are delighted to announce that the Digital Health Passport is now being rolled out in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care Board (ICB) has taken a step forward in asthma self-care with the successful introduction of the Digital Health Passport. Developed by Tiny Medical Apps (TMA), this app is geared towards enabling children, young people, and their carers to effectively navigate asthma while providing a range of educational materials to enhance their comprehension and boost confidence in managing their asthma.
The Digital Health Passport offers a variety of features tailored specifically to meet the distinct needs of asthma patients. A noteworthy feature is its ability to share asthma management plans with family and friends, promoting a collaborative approach to assisting individuals dealing with asthma. Users can easily track their symptoms and access educational materials, empowering them to make well-informed decisions about their asthma.
The app helps you connect with others for advice and gives you useful info from trusted sources like Asthma & Lung UK. It also reminds you about taking medicine, warns about air quality, and gives tips on using inhalers and avoiding triggers. All these things make managing asthma much easier.
It is exciting to see Cambridgeshire and Peterborough ICB being one of ICBs helping TMA evaluate engagement strategies. The ICB are piloting promotional materials within school settings, including within classroom sessions. These materials such as posters and leaflets featuring a QR code for app download, are aimed at helping young people understand asthma better and providing them with valuable information for themselves and their parents/carers.
Expressing her excitement, Liz Honeywood, Senior Practitioner for Community Asthma Team in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, stated, “I am genuinely excited about the possibilities that the Digital Health Passport holds, especially in the context of our efforts to integrate it within school settings. The app has the potential to transform how we support young individuals and their caregivers in effectively managing asthma. It represents a new avenue for self-care and education, perfectly complementing our commitment to delivering enhanced care for our young patients. By pushing its adoption within schools, we can empower young students with crucial asthma information, ensuring they have the knowledge needed to manage their condition optimally, both at school and at home.”
