As part of Respiratory Care Week, Royal Philips has launched COPD insider, an online community that features discussion by leaders in value-based COPD care on topics such as new solutions; key care issues; knowledge sharing; and practical solutions.
COPD insider will crowd-source expertise from U.S. thought leaders via an online community that connects COPD patients’ entire care team. Aiming to leverage the collective guidance from professionals across different disciplines, COPD insider aims to give subscribers a resource for valuable tips and tools that they can use to improve the their practice.
“This online community will leverage the expertise of leaders in COPD care to offer insight into tools and solutions that educate healthcare providers, better treat patients’ respiratory conditions and help transform COPD care,” said Eli Diacopoulos, business leader of Home Respiratory Care for Philips.
“It is crucial in our industry to collaborate and challenge each other in order to find the best solutions for our patients,” said Brian Carlin, MD, FCCP, FAARC, critical care staff physician with Altoona Regional Health System, and a COPD insider participant. “The collaboration and discussion that will take place through COPD insider will enable our care teams to redefine our approach to COPD care and improve outcomes for our patients.”
Once registered with COPD insider, subscribers will have free access to:
