Fact Friday – January 5 2018
Fact Friday: Did you know that “Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is one of a family of related diseases called interstitial lung diseases that can result in lung scarring. As the lung tissue becomes scarred, it interferes with a person’s ability to breathe. In some cases, the cause of pulmonary fibrosis can be found. But most cases of pulmonary fibrosis have no known cause. These cases are called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).” – American Lung Association.
patientMpower for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) provides the tools for patients to manage their treatment, get access to their medical data and help improve their outcome. We empower patients with tools, data and information which is validated by their care team. Our platform connects with hospital systems allowing them to send data to patients and receive questions and home measurements such as measuring their lung function. We are working with IPF Clinical centres and Researchers in Europe & USA.
