New call-to-action

Who is ALK ?

ALK is a global specialty pharmaceutical company focused on allergy and allergic asthma. It markets allergy immunotherapy treatments and other products and services for people with allergies, as well as for allergy doctors. Headquartered in Hørsholm, Denmark, ALK employs around 2,300 people worldwide and is listed on NASDAQ.

Who is Klarify.me?

A young company with an old soul, klarify.me  started as a consumer-focused start-up under the umbrella of parent company ALK. Together, their mission is to make life with allergies as simple and as limitless as possible. As part of ALK, Klarify.me has always understood the importance of communicating not just pollen information to their pollen-sensitive (allergic) users, but also the impact air pollution has on the health of this target demographic and others as well. With the Klara mobile app, ALK wants to empower people to better manage their allergies and health.

ALK Teams Up with BreezoMeter

As an expert in air quality and pollen data, BreezoMeter has the data and experience to educate ALK’s allergy sufferers with relevant, i.e. real-time, location-based, information that could be intuitive, and informative. At the same time, ALK knew they could benefit from increased user engagement and help provide additional resources to ALK's allergy patients.

In order to provide the best data available, ALK partnered up with BreezoMeter. It can be a jungle to find valid and easy-to-understand pollen and air quality data as a user." --Louise Kristine Hjernø, Global Head of Digital Projects, Consumer Division, ALK.

The Consumer Healthcare Challenge: Air Pollution

Making air quality easy to understand and actionable is not easy. As a result, klarify.me runs ongoing tests of Klara with its users, to make sure they are providing understandable and actionable air quality data.

Air pollution can have short and long term health effects on the respiratory system and allergies, so it is important that people, especially those with respiratory sensitivities such as allergies and asthma, are aware of what is in the air they breathe. It is also understandable that users want to engage with an app that is constructive and helpful, providing tips on how to help improve health on an ongoing basis.
