To adopt Information Technologies, care providers ought to utilize various resources. For instance, adequate staffing is required because changes in the people’s lifestyles have led to the prevalence of chronic conditions, including asthma. The projection is that the care providers are likely to be overburdened with the population of patients, hospitalization and rehospitalization occur at a time when sections of the patients are discharged and allowed to use the Asthmapolis sensor while away from the hospitals. The latter group requires continuous monitoring, yet the same care providers are expected to attend to more and more patients. Therefore, the adoption of Information Technologies prompts the stakeholders to employee “float staff” groups that may help in monitoring patient records. The application is also demanding in such a way that devices are used on the part of the patient, as well as the care provider’s side, which forms the recipient of the data. The implication is that patients are expected to have Smartphones to be used alongside the sensors (which are attached to the inhalers) while care providers are expected to have devices on their part to detect and aspects such as alterations in the criticality of the condition and take a proper action.
