PURPOSE: COPD is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and over 12 million people live with COPD. It is also estimated that almost 50% of them remain undiagnosed. It results in a burden of $36 billion in direct health care costs and in 2020 they are projected to increase to $49 billion. With the COPD readmission penalty in place, an erroneous diagnosis of COPD may have a significant financial risk. We undertook the study to assess the accuracy of diagnosis and utilization of spirometry in the primary care clinic.
