Details and patient eligibility


Our primary purpose is to assess the use feasibility and acceptability of the study phone app called, "Oabi" app with patients diagnosed with overactive bladder disorder (OAB).

Full description

Tracking overactive bladder disorder can be an important part of managing the disease. It can help the patient and the health care providers keep a tab on what is working to help manage OAB symptoms. Tracking urination patterns can actually help patients normalize their bladder problems. By focusing on certain behaviors and habits that contribute to their OAB and changing those behaviors, patients can effectively control OAB symptoms. The Oabi mobile application has been created with the goal of helping patients learn more about their day-to-day symptoms as well as track and self-manage their symptoms. Additionally, the Oabi app connects patients with their HCP via a clinician portal to boost communication, and encourage patient-provider interaction. The goal of this pilot study is to evaluate the usability and acceptability of the Oabi mobile app.
