Technology that helps kids manage their asthma?
Now that’s smart.

BreatheSmart helps your pediatric patients gradually take on more responsibility for their asthma. The platform works by sending medication reminders and tracking inhaler use, symptoms, and triggers—all while keeping parents connected to provide support at every stage of the journey.

The result is a transition of care that’s less worrisome
for parents and more empowering for kids.

BreatheSmart® works in all the ways that matter.1*

Decrease in rescue-medication use after only a 6-month period

Increase in daily controller medication use

*Real-world evidence from a controlled study of self-management of asthma using the BreatheSmart platform in an adult population under approved clinical-study protocols.

In one study, 73% of caregivers reported that they stopped giving their child maintenance medication when symptoms improved.2

Why BreatheSmart® is a bright idea.2

Problem: Adherence

As children with asthma begin to take on more responsibility for their own care, adherence to maintenance medication often declines. In one study, adherence was as low as 8%.

The BreatheSmart® Solution

BreatheSmart supports the transfer of asthma management from parents to patients by providing dosing reminders and medication-tracking capability.

Problem: Missed doses

Studies indicate that parent and patient reports of medication adherence are unreliable. In one study, parents who reported that they missed doses missed at least half of them. Those who reported no missed doses missed at least 20%.

The BreatheSmart® Solution

BreatheSmart provides objective and accurate adherence data, enabling pediatricians to make more informed clinical decisions.


BreatheSmart® helps families tap into better asthma care.

Here’s how it works:

Medication Reminders

BreatheSmart sends customized reminders right to kids' smartphones, helping to ensure they stay on top of their medication schedule.

Medication Tracker

Once a child’s medication is logged using the BreatheSmart app, the HeroTracker sensors will capture control and rescue inhaler use. Over time, this accurate and objective data can help reveal any issues with adherence or overuse of rescue medication, helping you make more informed clinical decisions.

Asthma and Trigger Diary

Keeping a diary helps your pediatric asthma patients get into the habit of logging symptoms and triggers. Over time, this can help all involved gain a better understanding of the child’s condition.

Caregiver Functionality

Parents can easily keep track of their child's medication usage with the BreatheSmart caregiver functionality.

The BreatheSmart Connect website provides a more detailed analysis of symptoms, triggers, and adherence behavior, which parents can share with care teams during appointments. The platform also allows parents to stay connected with children, offer support, and send encouraging messages.

BreatheSmart® empowers patients and supports parents every step of the way.

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Makes adherence part of the routine.

BreatheSmart lets caregivers begin the process of teaching their children healthy habits by establishing a routine for administering daily maintenance medication.

Helps parents transition from care leaders to care supporters.

BreatheSmart enables your pediatric patients to gradually take on more responsibility for their own care, including being able to recognize and track their symptoms and triggers. At the same time, caregivers can stay connected, and provide guidance when needed.

Lets kids feel more empowered. Helps parents be less concerned.

Studies show that medication adherence declines when older children and adolescents are given responsibility without supervision.2 BreatheSmart allows the transfer of responsibility to be given gradually over time and allows caregivers to stay involved. The platform also provides historical data, so care teams can gain objective insights that help with clinical decisions.
