Join us as Dr. Karen Seigel shares the work she and her team have been doing focused on care of patients with COPD.  Some of the many highlights include:

  • How patients with low relational continuity (<50%) are 7 times more likely to be admitted to hospital compared to those who see their own physician at least 80% of the time.
  • How Dr. Seigel and her team used their EMR and HQCA reports to identify COPD patients at risk of exacerbation/hospitalization
  • How the team shares the workload and focuses on streamlining clinic processes for COPD care
  • Useful resources developed with the Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA)
  • Simple steps teams can take to improve relational continuity
