SuperCare Health Launches iBreathe App for COPD Patients in Healthcare at Home Program

DOWNEY, CA – SuperCare Health, a chronic care management company specializing in respiratory diseases and providing high-touch, high-tech in-home patient management solutions, today launched the SuperCare iBreathe app for COPD patients enrolled in the company’s Healthcare at Home program. Healthcare at Home utilizes cutting-edge mobile technologies, combined with quality clinical services and proven cost-savings that reduce hospital readmissions and offer shared savings for payors.

“SuperCare Health has demonstrated that a high-touch and high-tech, unique approach to chronic care management truly helps COPD patients avoid hospital visits through better management of their condition,” said John Cassar, CEO of SuperCare Health. “The iBreathe app is one tool in a comprehensive set of biometric devices, including an iPad mini, we provide patients to help educate them on COPD and how to better maintain their health.”

SuperCare iBreathe was co-developed with LifeMap Solutions, who works in partnership with researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and leading pulmonologists from the Mount Sinai – National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute. iBreathe empowers patients to better track data about their condition and easily share that information with their health care team to improve their treatment.

“Our collaboration with LifeMap Solutions has empowered us to deliver the enhanced iBreathe app, the perfect mHealth complement to our COPD management programs,” said Cassar.

Using the app, patients can get real-time local weather and air quality alerts and medication reminders, track their symptoms in order to reduce their risk of potentially-deadly COPD exacerbations and promptly seek treatment when necessary. By recognizing exacerbations earlier, patients can address them at home under their doctor’s guidance and prevent an expensive emergency room visit or inpatient hospital stay.
