COPD Foundation adds coaching app to growing list of support tools

Friday, October 2, 2015

WASHINGTON – The COPD Foundation and ViiMed launched an interactive website and mobile app this week for coaching, education and wellness monitoring for COPD patients. COPD360coach uses educational modules comprised of online videos and courses taught by health professionals and COPD patients. The foundation envisions health systems and accountable care organizations deploying the technology to their patients to help them better managed their disease. COPD360coach is the brainchild of a Crowdshaped event in June co-hosted by the COPD Foundation and Novartis Pharmaceuticals. The COPD Foundation selected ViiMed to develop a solution combining what was derived from the Crowdshaped event into one, cohesive platform. COPD360coach joins the foundation’s existing initiatives COPD360social and its COPD Patient-Powered Research Network.
