Keeping COPD patients out of hospital
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is the second largest cause of emergency admissions in the UK. Through remote monitoring, we can help you to reduce unscheduled admissions and safely manage people with COPD in their own homes*.
CliniTouch Vie flags signs of deterioration earlier, so you can intervene sooner. From changes in breathing to coughing more than usual, you’ll have all the clinical data you need in one place.
COPD was the first clinical pathway we digitised with CliniTouch Vie. Now, thousands of patients later and with proven results under our belts, we can help you get started in as little as two weeks.
"I could look at my data and build a picture of what my health was like myself. I do feel more confident in managing my COPD with CliniTouch Vie. I know what to watch out for and what to look for."
Peter, 67, COPD patient using CliniTouch Vie
Our research into remote monitoring for COPD was published as early as 2016, demonstrating improved outcomes for patients and clinicians, alongside significant cost savings.

“We can identify patients who are about to have an exacerbation…”
Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust has been using CliniTouch Vie since November 2020 to remote monitor patients living with COPD. Respiratory specialist physiotherapist, Mani Moodley, explains how CliniTouch Vie has helped improve different aspects of patient care.

We’re proud to have been recognised by industry awards for our work with CliniTouch Vie, including our COPD pathway. From supporting patients, to improving outcomes, we let the results speak for themselves.
"We chose CliniTouch Vie due to its proven success in delivering digital programmes for patients with COPD, heart failure and COVID-19; the exact cohort of patients we had identified as a priority. The platform helps us to prevent re-admission by the early identification of deterioration, whilst maximising clinical time and resources."
