    PULMONARY CARE

    24 million Americans have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Individuals with COPD are at risk of making multiple costly, stressful trips to the hospital.

    Research shows that many of these rehospitalizations are potentially preventable through the use of proactive, team-based care coordination programs.

    Assure is one of the few home care providers equipped with the expertise and passion for working with patients, families, and physicians for reducing the likelihood of hospital readmissions for individuals with COPD.

    Our @HomeCore Solutions ™ Disease Management Clinical Pathways for COPD uses clinically proven methods to educate people with COPD and their families on the key aspects of the condition, how to monitor symptoms, properly use inhalers, improve wellness, and stay as healthy as possible.
