Description: Timely diagnosis and remote disease monitoring have proven instrumental in improving outcomes for patients grappling with chronic respiratory diseases. However, despite the advances in digital health, respiratory health monitoring systems encounter several challenges that impact their integration into clinical care. This presentation aims to explore these challenges, providing insights into the factors affecting feasibility and acceptance. It will introduce a new software tool designed to address some of these challenges, facilitating monitoring, timely interventions, and enhanced quality of life for older adults.
