COPD Costs are growing quickly
Estimated excess spend as a result of COPD
Growth in COPD spend over the last decade
Growth in Medicare inhaler spend in the last five years
in annual savings for every patient enrolled in Pulmonary Rehab*
International guidelines recommend pulmonary rehabilitation for all moderate to severe patients with COPD, but less than 2% of patients actually receive it.
This is because there is not enough access to pulmonary rehabilitation centres.

1 on 1 Health Coaching
Each BreatheSuite User is put in touch with a Health Coach who is trained to help you manage your COPD on a daily basis. Coaches will guide, support and encourage you on your journey to better breathing.
Hi Jane, it seems you're improving your COPD score. Your daily report shows improvements. Great work!
Hi Jane, I noticed you've used your rescue inhaler four times in the last hour, how can I help?
FDA Cleared Connected Inhaler Sensors
Our FDA-cleared inhaler sensors will track the frequency and effectiveness of rescue inhaler usage. We will know exactly when their symptoms are flaring up. As soon as a rescue is used more frequently than it should be, coaches are notified to prevent minor exacerbations from becoming major problems.
Participants are then matched into private group of peers that closely match their life stage and COPD management goals. The group will be important for empathy, encouragement, as well as social accountability.
Great job everyone on hitting their goals!
I have never had others that feel the same way as me. You are all such an inspiration!
