As part of our accredited, interactive webinar series, HDC hosted a session last week where we demonstrated how healthcare providers can use HDC Discover to gain a broader perspective on respiratory disease in practice.

COVID-19 has raised everyone’s awareness of the risk of clinically vulnerable patients developing a serious systemic disease that can result in significant morbidity and mortality. Chronic respiratory disease is a category of conditions, including COPD and asthma, where the risk of hospitalization and death is increased. Those with a diagnosis of a chronic respiratory condition, compared to those without, carry a mortality risk of 1.63. (Source)

As care providers, identifying patients in our practice with COPD and asthma, providing education, optimizing their care, and supporting self-management of their condition could help improve those patients’ outcomes.
