A New Standard of Care in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
The purpose of the Breathe Wright Program is to assist physicians in managing the care of patients diagnosed with COPD. Over the last decade, COPD has become the nation's third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. Wright & Filippis has combined state-of-the-art technology and enhanced services in this new program to help improve the quality of life of those with COPD.
Through regular and ongoing Respiratory Assessments and the latest advances in technology, Breathe Wright enhances the relationship between physicians, therapists, and patients to help keep patients more compliant to their prescribed therapy, thus slowing the progression of their disease.
Director of Home Medical Equipment Tim Hatt states, "We are excited about the Breathe Wright program and the enhanced level of service it provides to patients with COPD. It’s become a big hit within the community and has given patients the confidence to become more active in their day-to-day lives."
