This service improves adherence to treatments, digital literacy, patient empowerment in low-income countries + pro-active engagement in research.Key to R&D in new therapeutics Market size. Today, 60 million people suffer from COPD (Chronic Obstructuve Pulmonary Disease )worldwide. Total direct costs associated with COPD were approximately $40 billion in 2015 and are estimated to reach $49 billion by 2020. excluding other pulmonary diseases.
