Suboptimal adherence to treatment is a significant issue in the management of pediatric asthma and is a major cause of uncontrolled disease, life-threatening attacks, and increased use of health care resources. Electronic health solutions have the potential to positively impact asthma self-management in children and adolescents and their families, thereby improving treatment adherence and asthma outcomes. However, there is a lack of sufficient data to support widespread adoption of electronic health tools in pediatric asthma practice. A critical evaluation of the impact of these new interventions on treatment adherence in childhood asthma must consider unmet needs, heterogeneity of trials, safety and data security issues, long-term effects, and cost-effectiveness. This article explores the most relevant issues facing the role of electronic health and its subcategory-mobile health-in promoting treatment adherence in childhood asthma, focusing on current evidence gaps and limitations, and future research perspectives.

Abstract

Suboptimal adherence to treatment is a significant issue in the management of pediatric asthma and is a major cause of uncontrolled disease, life-threatening attacks, and increased use of health care resources. Electronic health solutions have the potential to positively impact asthma self-management in children and adolescents and their families, thereby improving treatment adherence and asthma outcomes. However, there is a lack of sufficient data to support widespread adoption of electronic health tools in pediatric asthma practice. A critical evaluation of the impact of these new interventions on treatment adherence in childhood asthma must consider unmet needs, heterogeneity of trials, safety and data security issues, long-term effects, and cost-effectiveness. This article explores the most relevant issues facing the role of electronic health and its subcategory-mobile health-in promoting treatment adherence in childhood asthma, focusing on current evidence gaps and limitations, and future research perspectives.
