A BETTER CARE MODEL FOR COPD
 
Our model for COPD was developed by primary care physicians who have years of experience managing COPD patient populations and getting results. It includes:
– Spirometry tools
– Medication recommendations
– EMR workflow
– The latest evidence-based guidelines for treating COPD
 
 

VILLAGEMD'S COPD CARE MODEL INCLUDES:

  • Proactive identification of at-risk patients — both with a COPD diagnosis and those at high risk to develop the condition
  • COPD Assessment Test (CAT) appropriate medication management
  • Control of comorbid conditions for reduction in exacerbations and hospitalizations
  • Coordination of pulmonary rehabilitation for the appropriate patients to improve symptoms and quality of life
  • Spirometry testing for diagnosis in the population at highest risk for COPD
  • Acute symptom identification and self-management for early treatment of exacerbations
  • Care management for patients at increased risk for hospitalizations and readmissions or for patients with barriers to accessing care
  • Smoking cessation counseling for prevention of disease progression
 

OUR COPD MODEL WORKS BY HELPING YOU:

  • Accurately identify and stage patients with COPD
  • Control comorbid disease and risk factors
  • Improve patients' quality of life and health care outcome
  • Manage the severity of disease with appropriate medications and behavioral changes
  • Reduce the frequency of exacerbations, ED visits and hospitalizations
