What does the app do?
This app links to a Hailie™ sensor for your inhaler(s) via bluetooth. You can then track medication use and enable an audio and visual reminder for dosing. There are a range of Hailie sensors, each designed to work with a different inhaler type. The app has built-in audio visual alarms to remind you when to take a puff and sensors to track whether you did. This is to encourage you to remember to use your inhaler on time. The app syncs automatically with your Hailie™ sensor, giving you access to your medication history. If you're caring for an elderly parent or child, the Hailie app helps you keep track of their doses, even when you are not there.
How to get started?
There are attachable sensors for most available asthma inhalers in New Zealand. They are purchasable via subscription from the app website(external link). They will be delivered to you, and you can then follow the setup instructions online to link to the app. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play(external link) or iTunes(external link) and for a detailed review, see Reviews.
✔ Set up a prescribed dosing schedule.
✘ The turbuhaler device occasionally doesn't register puffs especially if inhaling too fast.
