MyAsthma.com is a World Wide Web-enabled asthma self-management intervention implemented in 1999. Participants include people with asthma 14 years of age or older, but many parents participate on behalf of their young children with asthma.

The program provides self-care tools to track peak flow, symptoms, triggers, and medication usage. Participants are able to review their progress with graphs and reports that they can share with their healthcare provider. Participants also receive personalized education and answers to questions about asthma and allergies from the MyAsthma health team. The program provides an online community to share personal stories, make friends, and gain support and advice from their forums on asthma, allergies, and general health. The program also provides up to date information to help participants learn more about their condition, including lifestyle issues, treatment options; and devices such as peak-flow meters and spacers.

MyAsthma.com was evaluated in 2000 and was found to have a clinically and statistically significant positive impact on quality of life for the adult patient. The program attributes its success to the good use of technology and the program being convenient and easy to use.
