myCOPD is one part of a long-term condition patient app, which can be used on almost any device and assists people with COPD to self-manage their condition more effectively
myCOPD enables patients to manage their condition more effectively with a self-management plan and inhaler diary, pulmonary rehabilitation program, online education tutorials, weather, pollution, and symptom reporting. The platform interfaces with a clinician-facing dashboard to enable the remote monitoring and management of patients at an individual and population level. Local healthcare providers use the platform to monitor exacerbation burdens in real time, review potential inequalities in health care, more effectively plan support services and deliver a co-scripted annual review.
