Extract

Introduction: The availability of specialized pulmonary medicine differs considerably between geographical areas in Switzerland. Currently there are 6 tertiary centers supplying the broadest spectrum of pulmonary diagnostics and therapy. The diagnostic diversity is a marker of medical quality in terms of precision medicine. We hypothesize that diagnostic diversity could be lower in more isolated regions. Our aim was to investigate the relationship between the diversity of pulmonary diagnoses and the distance between patients' area of residence and the closest tertiary lung center.
