Asthma Journal iPhone appApplication developer company Ringful announced that its newest application, Asthma Journal, is now available for the iPhone platform. The company also claims it's the first app to integrate with the Google Health personal health record. The application is free.

Asthma Journal enables uses to track and report whether they are wheezing, coughing or tight in the chest. The user also tracks the severity of its their symptoms. The app then sends the entries to the user's Google Health account so the patients, caregivers and/or physicians can review the data in aggregate.

Next steps for the app? Microsoft HealthVault integration should come with the app's next update, according to CEO Michael Yuan. The CEO also wants to provide integration with Dossia, which is a consortium of large employers that aim to provide their employees and other dependents with an "independent, lifelong health record."

Is this the first of many Google Health integrated apps?
