Payer Perspective: Asthma/COPD for Clinicians

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

This course is aimed at teaching healthcare coordinators and providers about improving outcomes through best practices and effective cost strategies in caring for adults with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Asthma and COPD are included in chronic lower respiratory disease which is the third leading cause of death in the United States (CDC, 2015). This means that chronic lower respiratory diseases are among the costliest diseases to manage and treat. While asthma and COPD are among the leading increases in healthcare costs, there are steps that can be taken to help make their healthcare more cost effective. Although this course links asthma and COPD, the COPD discussion is targeted at earlier stage recognition and treatment with the hope of minimizing the progression of the disease. If COPD progresses, additional medications, delivery systems, and concentrated oxygen may need to be added. That is beyond the scope of this discussion.
