COPD Clinical Review Service

We can help general practitioners to review the management of their patients with COPD by providing easy to use tools that can help to identify patients with the main risk factors associated with COPD and ensure optimal disease control.
Combining extracted coded data from de-identified patient electronic medical records and questionnaire data we help GP practices better align current processes with best practice guidelines.
RACGP Activity number 198483

Testimonials

I feel more confident in the management of my asthma patients. The audit helped provide a more streamlined approach.

Dr. W, NSW

I took two things from this audit, the first was appreciating the risk of osteoporosis that increased use of oral corticosteroid courses has on patients. The second was how eosinophil levels influence the utility of biologics for patients with severe asthma.
I would more strongly consider referral for biologic treatment in patients with high eosinophil count.       

Dr L, NSW

“These reports are going to help us revolutionise how we manage our high-risk asthma patients.

Dr. SK, VIC
