Case Study: Reducing COPD Hospitalizations by 62%

Learn how clinicians reduced COPD hospitalizations by leveraging real-time patient-reported symptoms


CareSignal uses automated phone calls and text messages to help clinicians catch exacerbations early and efficiently. This case study will demonstrate how clinicians used CareSignal to:

  • Use automation to provide proactive high-touch care
  • Maintain 80-90% patient engagement
  • Reduce hospitalizations for elderly, low-income COPD patients


Figure 1. In three months, CareSignal's COPD program (formerly known as EpxCOPD) reduced hospitalization risk by 62% between the placebo and the treatment group. That is a 10% absolute risk reduction.
