Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease management

Clinical decision support to enable early interventions

COPD will be the third leading cause of death worldwide by 2030.

2019 1.2 million affected

2030 2.6 million affected


In the UK, 1.2 million people are affected by COPD


at the highest risk of exacerbation.


COPD exacerbations are the second most common cause of emergency admissions to hospital, with a cost of £6155 per admission.

Who it's for

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) management is a continuous, preventative digital service model for remote management of patients with COPD.

It uses connected devices and patient-reported outcomes to gather and share patient health data. It aims to reduce hospital admissions by enabling early interventions.

The COPD service is currently being used by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Clinicians invite high-risk COPD patients onto the service. They'll provide connected devices and establish critical baseline data.

How it works

Provided devices automatically gather patient health data and securely share it with the care team. Patients are prompted to answer set patient-reported outcome questions daily.

Data rules help clinicians to identify patterns and insights providing decision support for personalised interventions and escalations.

A clinical dashboard for health professionals aggregates and displays health data for all onboarded patients. Clinicians can use Lenus to:

  • send messages to patients or the designated care team
  • create and share self-management plan and rescue pack medication with patient

The COPD management service collects:

  • activity, heart rate and sleep

  • energy expenditure

  • oxygen saturation and respiratory rate

  • NIV usage

  • respiratory rate

  • ventilation parameters (absolute and change)
