Impact of COPD on the Healthcare system
The National Center for Health Statistics reports COPD to be the 4th leading cause of death in the Unites States, causing 124,000 deaths per year. Over 24 million Americans have COPD, and women are more likely than men to die from COPD. The major risk factor for developing and dying from COPD is tobacco smoking. COPD is responsible for over 1 million hospital admissions and $37 billion dollars in healthcare costs each year. Due to the large numbers of Americans with COPD and the heath care costs associated with the treatment of COPD, this chronic lung disease is a focus of many quality improvement initiatives and pay for performance programs.
