At patientMpower we have been working in delivery of remote monitoring solutions for patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) for five years and we know that 2020 has undoubtedly been a particularly challenging year for the IPF community.

As September is IPF Awareness month, we wanted to highlight Matt Cullen’s story. Matt has been using patientMpower’s remote monitoring technology to manage his IPF since 2017 and with the support of his clinician, Dr. Killian Hurley at Beaumont Hospital, he has taken control of his disease and been empowered with managing information about his own health.
