Less Day Clinic Visits
**Two-year study conducted at the Montreal Chest Clinic
“My team at the Montreal Chest Institute (MCI) originally adapted and piloted TelASK in home support of 50 COPD patients. Soon thereafter we began offering TelASK as part of a real-life project to all 300 COPD patients of our clinic. We had previously achieved enviable results with our self-management intervention program and case management “Living Well with COPD” at the MCI. The results of the two-year project with TelASK were astonishing. For severe COPD patients followed by TelASK the incidence of hospitalizations and visits to the day hospital further decreased by 25% and 33% respectively. We have appreciated working with the TelASK team. They are very professional and focused on the advancement of care. We would not hesitate to recommend TelASK to your organization.”
