Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in Australia and globally, and leads to a substantial burden on healthcare services. Effective and timely management of patients with COPD has been essential to alleviate COPD exacerbation, improve the quality of life, and consequently reduce the economic burden. To achieve this, a mobile and internet technologies assisted home care model (M-COPD) was developed to assist clinicians to remotely monitor and manage COPD conditions and events. This paper will focus on the technical aspect of M-COPD system by describing its setup and discussing how the M-COPD could address the clinical needs in monitoring and managing COPD conditions of patients at home.
