About This Webinar
November is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Awareness Month. Though COPD is the third leading cause of death by chronic disease in the U.S. and the fifth most costly chronic condition, it is often overlooked by payers and providers relative to other chronic diseases. As a result, many people with COPD are slipping through the cracks and frequent hospitalizations have become the 'norm' for COPD care. A problem of this scale puts immense pressure on an already overburdened health care system, and the cost of care for the growing population of people living with COPD is significant.
With the industry at an inflection point, it’s time to reimagine COPD care and fill the missing link by investing in preventive care solutions that keep patients healthy and out of the hospital, reduce unnecessary health care costs, and alleviate provider burden.
In this webinar, three industry experts will discuss why preventive care is the missing link in chronic disease management, the promising role of virtual solutions, and actionable strategies health plans can adopt to empower patients and providers while incentivizing this type of innovation.
Attendees Will Learn About
- Why preventive COPD care is the missing link in the chronic disease care continuum
- The financial and clinical impact of COPD
- Actionable strategies for payers and providers to improve the status quo of COPD care, including access to pulmonary rehabilitation
