Inspired Approaches to COPD: Improving Care and Creating Value

Across Canada today, an estimated 800,000 Canadians live with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Of all chronic diseases, COPD is the number one reason for hospitalizations in Canada, accounting for the largest number of return visits to emergency departments. COPD also generates the highest volume of hospital readmissions. 

A new CFHI initiative shows hospitalizations due to COPD can be decreased by up to 80 percent when healthcare is directed to patients and their families at home. Please visit www.cfhi-fcass.ca for more information.
