“Telepulmonology provides a way to support the GPs in interpreting spirometry results, diagnosing patients and making decisions on the treatment of patients. GPs using telepulmonology experience an educational effect and they or their patients feel aided by the answer of the pulmonologist.

Additionally, the results show that telepulmonology, by improving the communication between GP and pulmonologist, prevents unnecessary physical referrals.”
