Propeller Health is expanding its partnership with Desert Oasis Healthcare (DOHC) to increase inhaler adherence, decrease rescue use and lower healthcare costs for people with asthma and COPD, the company announced recently.

“Our partnership with Desert Oasis Healthcare is a great example of the power of digital health to empower patients and keep them out of the hospital,” Propeller Health General Manager Susa Monacelli said in a statement. “Our goal is to give these patients the tools they need to take their medication on time, avoid preventable symptoms and ultimately get back to the activities they enjoy.”

According to a release, through this collaboration, Propeller will be available to more than 700 people with asthma and COPD.

Propeller Health and DOHC first partnered in 2017 on a pilot program. As a result of the success of the pilot, DOHC expanded the program to serve its full asthma and COPD population in late 2020.
