The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Digital System (DS) in improving asthma control compared to the Standard of Care (SoC) group.

The secondary objective is to describe the asthma management actions by investigational center health care providers (iHCPs) for all participants in both groups, to evaluate short-acting beta2 agonist (SABA) usage and the number of SABA-free days in the DS group, to evaluate adherence patterns to maintenance treatment (FS eMDPI) in the DS group, to assess behavioral correlates of responsiveness to digital health technology among patients for all participants in both groups, to evaluate work productivity and activity impairment in asthma patients in both groups, to assess the usability and acceptability of the DS by patients in the DS group and the investigational center personnel, and to evaluate the safety of FS eMDPI and Albuterol eMDPI.


Study duration will be approximately 27 weeks including a one-week screening period, 24 week treatment period, and a 2 week follow up period.

Inclusion Criteria

The participant has a documented diagnosis of asthma established at the investigational center at the time of informed consent or the investigator confirms a diagnosis of asthma
The participant is currently on treatment with a moderate- to high-dose inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) with long-acting beta agonist (LABA)
The participant has an Asthma Control Test score of less than 19 at the screening or baseline visit
The participant is willing to discontinue all other maintenance ICS with LABA medications and rescue medications and replace them with the study-provided fluticasone propionate/salmeterol (FS) multidose dry powder inhaler with integrated electronic module (eMDPI) and Albuterol eMDPI, respectively, for the duration of the trial, if randomized to the Digital System group. All other asthma maintenance medications, except for ICS with LABA, may be continued
Additional criteria apply, please contact the investigator for more information

Exclusion Criteria

The participant is currently being treated prior to enrollment with a digital inhaler system, including the Digihaler system or an external "bolt on" digital system designed to monitor inhaler usage, such as the Propeller Health or Adherium systems
The participant has any clinically significant uncontrolled medical condition (treated or untreated) other than asthma, which in the view of the investigator would preclude participation
The participant was hospitalized for severe asthma in the last 30 days
The participant has any medical or psychiatric condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, could jeopardize or would compromise the patient's ability to participate in this study
Additional criteria apply, please contact the investigator for more information
