MASK >> MACVIA-ARIA Sentinel Network
New App available!!!

The use of Apps running on consumer smart devices (i.e., smartphones and tablets) profoundly affects medicine. The MASK-rhinitis (MACVIA-ARIA Sentinel NetworK for allergic rhinitis) App (MASK Allergy Diary) assesses of disease control. It is freely available in 15 European countries (iPhone and Android platforms). Several unmet needs have been identified in allergic rhinitis: optimal control rhinitis and comorbidities, patient stratification, multidisciplinary team for integrated care pathways, innovation in clinical trials and, above all, patient empowerment. The MASK Allergy Diary is a simple system centred around the patient using Information and Communications Technology (ICT) tools based on the most widely used guideline in allergic rhinitis and its asthma comorbidity. It is one of the implementation systems of Action Plan B3 of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA). The electronic monitoring of allergic diseases uses a cell phone-based daily visual analogue scale (VAS) assessment of disease control. MASK is flexible and other tools can be added. It appears to be an advanced, global and integrated ICT answer for many unmet needs in allergic diseases which will improve policies and standards.

Patients: Take control of your lung health

questionnairesDo you get an itchy or runny nose when you come in contact with things like dust or pollen?  Do you sometimes wheeze or feel short of breath?  If you’ve been diagnosed with asthma, is your asthma under control?
