Observational data collection
“We investigated anonymized data from users of the Kaia COPD app on in-app retention and the change in health-related quality of life (COPD assessment test and Chronic Respiratory Disease Questionnaire) during a period of 20 exercise days with the app.”
“In finishers, there was a statistically significant effect above the minimum clinically important threshold of the CRQ score on the domains of fatigue, mastery, and emotional function.”
Users who fulfilled inclusion criteria: 56
Users who finished exercise day 20 at the time of the analysis: 34 (61%)
Mean age: 57.5 ± 7.8; 80% females
Average duration for 20-day core program completion: 33 ± 11 days

Users finishing the 20-day program reduced:
CAT-scores: mean improvement -2.5 points from 21.6 ± 7.7 to 19.1 ± 8.4; p= 0.008
CRQ-scores: mean improvement 0.5 points from 3.6 ± 1.0 to 4.1 ± 1.1; p< 0.001
Why your organization needs Kaia
Access to care
Access to pulmonary rehabilitation can be made difficult by limited resources and costs. Kaia is available to any patient in need, including those with transportation challenges or located in rural areas.
Opportunity to address a costly disease
Total national medical costs attributable to COPD during 2010 were estimated at $32.1 billion annually, which is expected to rise to $49 billion by 2020 — according to a study published January 2015 by CHEST.
Potential to reduce readmissions
There are approximately 700,000 COPD-related hospitalizations in the U.S. each year, with one in five patients readmitted within 30 days — according to a study published January 11, 2015, by the journal Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases.
We’re working with providers and payers to make Kaia available to all people suffering from COPD. Let’s connect to see if there’s a fit with your population and current offering.
