BreatheSuite Honored in 24th Annual Digital Health Awards® Spring 2022 Session

Named Gold winner in the Disease Management / Population Health Management category

St. John’s, NL, Canada – June 14, 2022: BreatheSuite Inc., a Canadian connected respiratory health company, was selected as a winner in 24th annual Digital Health Awards® program. This competition — held each spring and fall — recognizes the world’s best digital health resources. The BreatheSuite System received a Gold Award for Disease Management / Population Health Management.

Up to 90% of meter-dose inhaler (MDI) users do not receive the prescribed dosage of medication for chronic respiratory conditions like asthma and COPD when inhalers are used incorrectly. This can negatively impact the management of their chronic respiratory condition. Techniques such as shaking the MDI 10-15 times, as well as breath timing and positioning, can greatly impact the amount of medication that reaches the lungs. BreatheSuite’s technology turns existing MDIs into smart inhalers which can automatically and objectively monitor and provide feedback on inhaler adherence and technique. The BreatheSuite System – composed of a disposable, battery-powered, portable BreatheSuite MDI add-on device and a mobile application based on behavior change strategies – is designed to work with an MDI by attaching to the top of the canister of the patient’s inhaler. The over-the-counter device and mobile app work together to evaluate and “score” a person’s inhaler technique and usage patterns, storing results in the cloud so the person can track and use this information to improve how they use their inhaler. With consent, this information can also be remotely monitored by the person’s healthcare team to promote customizable care plans.  

“We are passionate about improving the health and quality of life of people who suffer from chronic respiratory conditions,” said Brett Vokey, CEO of BreatheSuite. “We are proud to receive this prestigious recognition as part of the 24th annual Digital Health Awards competition. To be chosen as a Gold winner from nearly 700 entries judged by a panel of distinguished experts in digital health media further affirms that our efforts are making the impact we strive for.”

The BreatheSuite MDI device entered the inhaler sensor market as the first to track both inhaler adherence and inhaler technique. By creating a real-time way to digitally monitor inhaler usage and provide feedback to people living with respiratory conditions and their physicians, BreatheSuite is enabling improved quality of care by ensuring proper inhaler technique and adherence, users get the correct dosage of medication which can lead to better health outcomes while reducing the economic burden associated with their conditions.
