COPD Digital Management Service

Available on G-Cloud 10

The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Digital Service enables high risk patients to securely share patient reported outcomes and health data from connected devices with community health professionals and specialist clinicians. The data can then be used to identify patients at high risk of exacerbation to support targeted interventions in the community.

How it works

  1. Patient Onboarding

    Patients who have frequent exacerbations or who are at risk of hypercapnic respiratory failure will be onboarded to the service by health professionals. Baseline clinical data will be established. Wearables and connected hardware will be supplied.

  2. Data Gathering

    Patients gather health data from the wearables and connected hardware supplied during onboarding. The health data is automatically and securely shared with the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform.

  3. Clinical Dashboard

    Patient data will become available in the COPD clinical dashboard, providing health professionals with a dedicated interface that displays and aggregates health data across all onboarded patients.

  4. Machine Learning

    Data rules help trained health professionals to identify patterns and insights that will trigger personalised interventions or escalation, in line with defined clinical protocols.

  5. Providing Interventions

    Trained algorithms will help to determine if an exacerbation is likely. This will guide if proactive health or social care interventions are required

  6. EHR Integration and Ongoing Communication

    Through the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform, healthcare professionals can access the patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) and augment it with data from the COPD service. Messages can be sent to patients (or their designated care team) via the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform. Diagnostics can also be created to gather qualitative insights from patients too.

The Opportunity

COPD is a growing challenge. By 2030, it will be the third leading cause of death worldwide.

In the UK 1.2 million people are affected with 20% at the highest risk of exacerbation. Exacerbations are the second most common cause of emergency hospital admission, costing £6,155 per admission.

The aim is to develop a continuous and preventative COPD service to support a reduction in emergency hospital admissions.

The Data

The connected hardware and apps provide the following data:

  • Activity, sleep, heart rate and variability
  • +/- Energy expenditure
  • +/- Oxygen saturation and respiratory rate
  • NIV usage
  • Respiratory rate
  • Ventilation parameters (absolute; and change)

Service benefits

If you need to reduce demand on front line services, save money and offer more flexible care options for patients then the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Management Service could help.



The Costs

The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Management Service is delivered on a cost per patient basis for a minimum period of 12 months. Exact costs depend on total number of patients, duration of service and required integrations with existing systems.

The cost per patient will be significantly less than the cost of an emergency hospital admission.

A licence for the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform will be required to enable the service. Your organisation may already have a licence. Contact us to discuss. Learn more about licencing and procurement.
