Better Lives with Care.Wallet: COPD in China

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has become a significant public health problem in China. According to a study, almost 100 million people suffering from chronic lung disease, about 8.6% percent of the country’s adult population.

COPD is a serious, progressive condition that limits airflow to the lungs. Smoking is a typical cause. There’s no cure for COPD, but treatment can help ease symptoms, lower the chance of complications, and generally improve quality of life.

Care.Wallet can help people with COPD or their family stay in touch with medical providers and care coordinators.

HAYFT will also provide the opportunity for a given patients’ relatives or care providers to keep abreast of developments in just a few clicks regardless of their location.

With Care.Wallet it’s easy to schedule an appointment. Patients can also book their own non-emergency medical transportation to and from consultations. This saves time and spares patients needless frustration.

Care.Wallet was created with the goal of supporting a patient’s health, anywhere and everywhere around the world.
