Study Type: Interventional
Age/Gender Requirements: Not Listed (male/female)
Sponsor: Department of Veterans Affairs
Purpose: “Patients who have been admitted to the hospital, or who have frequent urgent care visits, who also suffer from COPD exacerbations will be given a home monitoring system. Daily, the patient will respond to a series of questions. The results of the question answers will be remotely monitored by a nurse case manager. The objective is to measure compliance, resource use, and the ability for early recognition of an exacerbation of their COPD, and early implementation of therapy.”
