We are delighted to be supporting the Primary Care Respiratory Society Annual Conference 2020 to help promote the role that digital technology and education can take in improving the lives of patients with respiratory diseases.
We strive to promote best practice in respiratory care through our work in remote monitoring for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients and Pulmonary Rehabilitation services, and our initiative with the European Space Agency on providing vulnerable patients with access to satellite-based air quality information.
The ability to give people information about their local air quality is particularly useful for patients with COPD, who are able to make decisions to better manage their day and their overall condition, which is of significant importance to quality of life.
The effect of poor air quality on the health and wellbeing of people is well documented. The Air Quality and Health document from the European Respiratory Society (2010) identifies air pollution as an established cause of morbidity and mortality. Although we can all be affected by poor air quality there are many vulnerable groups who are particularly affected, including people with respiratory conditions.
Talk to us at the PCRS Conference to find out how our digital, remote monitoring platform, CliniTouch Vie, is designed to address all these challenges, helping to improve patient outcomes, reduce hospital admissions, enhance case management capacity and prevent acute exacerbations.
