Abstract: Frequent monitoring of asthma patients’ symptoms is recommended but does not happen routinely. Previous interventions are complex and have not scaled. We combined principles of qualitative research, user-centered design, and “gamification” to iteratively develop a “minimum viable” mHealth-based intervention and identify critical components. With a modest sample of users, we achieved saturation in the form of 4 interrelated use cases.

Learning Objective 1: Describe critical intervention components needed for providers to monitor asthma symptoms between visits using mHealth.
