Abstract: Objective: ASTHMAXcel© is a mobile application previously shown to improve asthma knowledge, control, and quality of life. In this study, we translated the application to Marathi for pilot testing in Pune, India in order to evaluate its impact on user satisfaction and asthma knowledge among adult asthma patients. Methods: ASTHMAXcel© was adapted to Marathi with the help of asthma patients and clinicians from Bharati Hospital. 57 different asthma patients were then recruited and received the Asthma Knowledge Questionnaire (AKQ), Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ), and Mini Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (Mini-AQLQ) to complete at baseline. Study participants then completed the adapted ASTHMAXcel© application. Post-intervention, participants filled out a post-AKQ and Questionnaire for User Interface Satisfaction (QUIS). A subset of participants was also interviewed for qualitative feedback. Paired t-tests and Pearson’s correlation were used for statistical analysis. Results: Mean AKQ improved from 5.0+/−2.4 to 12.4+/−1.6 (p = 0.0001). QUIS results revealed that participants were highly satisfied with the application, scoring an average of 50 out of 54 maximum points. Better baseline asthma control was correlated with greater overall experience with the application (–0.110, p = 0.0417). Finally, the qualitative feedback revealed four themes for future refinement. Conclusion: The adapted version of ASTHMAXcel© was linked to significant improvement in patient asthma knowledge and a high level of user satisfaction. These results support the potential utility of mHealth applications in promoting guideline-based asthma care in India. However, further studies are needed to establish a causal relationship between ASTHMAXcel© and improved clinical outcomes. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2023 APA, all rights reserved)
