What is myCOPD?
myCOPD is a digital therapeutic app that can support people with COPD, empowering them to better manage their condition day-to-day to improve their disease control and subsequent demand on NHS resources.
myCOPD provides a range of resources designed to improve disease awareness and support patients to proactively manage their condition through risk factor management and lifestyle modification. Features of the app include pulmonary rehabilitation videos, videos on inhaler techniques, COPD checklists and lung function tests, weather and pollution forecasting, self-management plans and inhaler diaries along with notifications to keep users on track.
Used as an integral part of service delivery by clinical teams, the ‘my COPD Clinical Dashboard’ can be used to support effective goals and facilitate hybrid and remote delivery models of care.
“Since starting myCOPD both myself, my wife and my family have noticed how much more I can do. I watch the videos to make sure I take my inhalers correctly and have started exercising three times a week using the videos. Now I can walk faster than my wife!” Michael, 74, Havant
