To understand the social and cultural aspects of children with asthma, we have empirically investigated the needs of the diverse stakeholders and conducted a technology probe study, in-depth interviews and a focus group with pediatric asthma patients, their caregivers, medical professionals, and community health workers. The purpose of this empirical study is to understand the current challenges and technology usage of families with pediatric asthma and community health workers.
