Paper: Digitalisation in respiratory medicine, where are we heading to?
Sabine Häussermann has spent more than 25 years in the field of respiratory diseases and respiratory drug delivery. Working in several regions of the world, she first engaged in basic and applied research to optimize drug delivery to the respiratory tract. Following that she then focused on using digital solutions helping patients with the treatment of their respiratory diseases. Her mission: Bringing effective healthcare to patients cost efficiently.
In 2017 she founded VisionHealth to follow the idea of making therapy for Asthma and COPD more efficient by empowering patients to understand and follow the therapy guidance of their physicians. The team of VisionHealth has developed the app Kata, which accompanies patients in their daily journey. Its USP is a series of intelligent algorithms running on the smartphone and teaching patients how to use their inhalation device efficiently in real time.
