If you or your teen/young adult have asthma, then you might be interested in this 12-month trial funded by NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and American Lung Association!

What is the MATCH Study?

The MATCH Study stands for “Improving Medication Adherence with Telehealthcare Medication Therapy Management to Change Health Outcomes in Adolescents and Young Adults with Asthma.” We are studying whether having more regular video calls with a pharmacist using a smart phone or computer will help adolescents and young adults with asthma to regularly take their prescribed inhaled medications and have fewer asthma symptoms.

What will you be doing?

MATCH will last about 12 months. There are five (5) study visits that will be conducted remotely using video or phone calls. Participants will use sensors on their inhalers to monitor use and will answer an asthma survey on their phone or computer every two (2) weeks.

Study visits will confirm eligibility, obtain data as outlined by study protocol, and screen for adverse events. Procedures will include questionnaires about your or your adolescent’s asthma symptoms and severity, in addition to lung function testing.
