SESSION TITLE: Care of the Patient with IPF

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 08:45 AM - 10:00 AM

PURPOSE: Chronic diseases account for $3 of every $4 spent on healthcare and cause 7 out of every 10 deaths. Among these, chronic lung diseases are the 3rd most expensive with $174 billion annually. No study examined financial burden of interstitial lung disease (ILD) and, in particular, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a progressive and fatal form of ILD. We aimed to examine cost of hospitalization among ILD patients with connective tissue disease (CTD-ILD) and IPF compared to those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and to identify correlates of cost of hospitalization among IPF patients.
