 en Practitioners section - Information and communication technology developments in asthma management: A systematic review
Duvvuri Venkata RamaSatya Kumar, Jianhong Wu

Abstract

This review aims to explain the progress of information and communication technology (ICT) applications in asthma management. Appropriate literature was printed out from the bibliographic databases and library source using relevant key phrases of ICT and asthma. The ICT developments from simple to complex modules to augment the conventional methods of asthma care with a caution of excessive reliance upon technology were discussed. However, it should be noted ICTs are for maximizing the human clinician's own ability to receive and process information as well as providing unique opportunities for patients, physicians, pharmacists and researchers.

Keywords
