Telehealth has been referred has an innovative solution for COPD patient treatment, minimizing the costs related with medical assistance while improving the patient care support and health outcomes. We have designed an innovative telehealth program of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) that aims to increase long term adherence of patient to physical activity (PA), self-care management of health condition and facilitation of social participation following an approach of community-based intervention, taking account the patient preferences. Therefore, our telehealth program combine education sessions, exercise training and follow up of health outcomes using a mobile application and a wrist oximeter, through bluetooth technology, for facilitating outdoor exercise and social participation of people living with COPD.
