COPD

COPD causes around 23,000 deaths in England each year, equating to one COPD related death every 20 minutes

Over 25% of people on the COPD register may have an incorrect diagnosis, which means that many patients are being treated for a condition which they do not have, and perhaps not receiving treatment for a condition which they do.

Late diagnosis leads to poor patient outcomes and inefficient use of NHS budgets. A lack of specialist healthcare professional resource within primary care does not help and underlines the need for decision support software, like LungHealth to support the NHS.

Evidence based computer-guided consultation

Our COPD software incorporates embedded algorithms based on NICE/GOLD standards, to prompt and guide the clinician throughout the consultation, aiding diagnosis and patient management (our drugs library is updated quarterly, and guidelines updated within 3 months of publication).

  • Hosted within the NHS HSCN Secure System
  • Generates a consultation summary which can be given to the patient
  • Drive local prescribing policy by flagging patients who are not on locality recommended drugs
