MYTHERAPY APP

This can only be accessed via the QR code on the flipchart discussion guide, MyTherapy app flyer or here. It is a private module of the MyTherapy app for patients prescribed Xolair for SAA. Patients can track injections and symptoms, generate reminders and access how-to videos showing correct injection technique.

The MyTherapy app is run by SmartPatient, and Novartis has paid for this private module specifically for patients prescribed Xolair for SAA.
