Aluna is a portable, digital spirometry platform that measures a patients’ respiratory functions and gives a doctor remote access to their lung health data. Together, the device and its companion app track a patient’s FEV1%, monitor important data, and share symptoms and triggers via a doctor dashboard. Utilization of the doctor dashboard allows for more seamless home-based care and creates a consistent revenue stream for pulmonologists and allergists.
If used regularly, Aluna could even be used to predict the onset of a respiratory event, like an asthma attack. Early detection leads to improved self-management as measured by the reduction of severe asthma attacks, the use of systemic corticosteroids, hospitalizations, emergency department, or urgent care visits related to asthma. Since value-based care models center on patient outcomes and how well healthcare providers can improve the quality of care based on specific measures, such as reducing hospital readmissions, Aluna’s predictive capabilities can further impact revenue.
- Monitor Remotely – Reduce unnecessary in-office patient visits
- Increase Efficiency – Unlock seamless Telemedicine opportunities
- Increase Revenue – Realize revenue growth through CPT Codes
Access Accurate Data via the Doctor Dashboard
Aluna’s algorithm can identify ‘adequate effort’ vs. ‘inadequate effort’ spirometry results, ensuring that physicians and patients see meaningful data. In addition to FEV1% and PEF, doctors can also monitor the following data.
- Flow-volume curve
- Environmental factors
- Medication usage
- Respiratory symptoms
- Exercise activities
Data for each of a doctor’s patients using Aluna is displayed on the intuitive, easy-to-use Doctor Dashboard.
Features of Aluna’s Doctor Dashboard
Once you’ve prescribed the device for your patient, you will need to onboard them using the resources and tools provided by Aluna. Then, the patient measures their lung health at home. Aluna will monitor the patient for adherence and alert you of worsening lung scores through the dashboard. Physicians can submit charges to insurance by using Aluna’s time tracking tool and billing against CPT codes.
Qualified healthcare practitioners will typically spend 5-8 minutes per week viewing the patient’s data in the dashboard. Time spent monitoring patient data is automatically logged for easy billing and provides a record in the event of an audit.
- A holistic view of all your patients
- You can filter patients by key attributes
- Highlight and flag “at-risk” patients
- Real-time health data sync
- Easy and simple data export

- Automatically track time spent per patient
Manage your patients’ data in an intuitive, easy-to-use portal.
Doctors who are using Aluna to offer home-based care and monitoring their patients’ lung health can submit their charges to insurance companies using RPM codes for setup, treatment, and the time spent monitoring the data.
