Annals of the American Thoracic Society: Promoting COPD Wellness through Remote Monitoring and Health Coaching: A Randomized Study

While exploring methods for improving the quality of life (QoL) among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a study published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society found that remote patient monitoring (RPM) and health coaching are effective treatment options. To determine the effectiveness of RPM in treating those with COPD, researchers gathered 375 patients between the ages of 60 and 78 to participate in a 12-week trial. Quality of life scores improved dramatically for those in the RPM system. Researchers concluded that delivering COPD care using RPM with health coaching is highly effective, leading to improved patient outcomes and reduced risk levels.
