Study Design

Allocation randomized
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking open label
The software application used on the patients' smart phones in the active group, will contain both the e-diary and the mobile-phone based patient support. Patients will receive feedback by the mobile-phone based support not only on the data they enter into the mobile-phone based patient support but also on their reported daily ticagrelor use.
mobile-phone based patient support
The mobile-phone based patient support (investigational medical device) is a stand-alone software product used on the patients' own smart phone and used in addition to medical treatment.
All patients (active and control group) participating in the study will report their daily use of ticagrelor in an e-diary which will be initiated on all study patients' smart phones.
(Placebo Comparator)
In this group the patients will have access to the e-diary only, in which they will report their daily use of ticagrelor. The patients in the control group will not receive any feed-back.
All patients (active and control group) participating in the study will report their daily use of ticagrelor in an e-diary which will be initiated on all study patients' smart phones.
