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 organisation 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
COPD is an enormous cost for healthcare systems in Europe. In the UK alone, lung conditions are estimated to cost the NHS and patients around £9.9 billion each year, according to the British Lung Foundation.
Potential to reduce readmissions
More than 35% of hospital-admitted COPD exacerbation patients were readmitted within 90 days, according to a 2016 audit of the largest European dataset of COPD hospitalisation quality of care and outcomes.
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.
