100 participants in 2 patient groups

Intervention Group
Experimental group
Description:
The components of the intervention unique to the treatment group include: 1) access to the Propeller Health Asthma App on his/her phone, which includes tracking of ICS and SABA usage; 2) receipt of NorthShore Connect physician alerts (these will be sent by the asthma nurse on behalf of the NS physician) if he/she has "poor adherence" ie missed 4 consecutive days of all of his/her controller medication dosages and their sensor has sent heartbeat to application OR "at risk" alerts if a patient transitions to a "not well controlled" or "poorly controlled" status (defined by the NHLBI guidelines); and 3) monthly phone calls with a nurse from his/her asthma doctor's office to review ICS and SABA usage reports (provided by Propeller Health on their Propeller Health dashboard).
Treatment:
Behavioral: Electronic Medication Monitors on ICS and SABA - Active Mode
Behavioral: Asthma Nurse Monthly Phone Calls for ICS/SABA Usage Feedback - Yes
Behavioral: NorthShore Connect Real Time ICS and SABA Usage Feedback - Yes
Behavioral: Asthma App Tracking of ICS/SABA Usage - Active Mode
Control Group
Experimental group
Description:
The control group will not receive access to view the contents of the Propeller Health Asthma App on his/her phone, NorthShore Connect alerts for missing ICS or overuse of SABA, or for his/her asthma doctor (the asthma nurse will be viewing this information on behalf of the asthma doctor) to view his/her ICS and SABA use on the Propeller Health dashboard until after the 3-month study has been completed.
Treatment:
Behavioral: Asthma Nurse Monthly Phone Calls for ICS/SABA Usage Feedback - No
Behavioral: Electronic Medication Monitors on ICS and SABA - Silent Mode
Behavioral: Asthma App Tracking of ICS/SABA Usage - Silent Mode
Behavioral: NorthShore Connect Real Time ICS and SABA Usage Feedback - No
