Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Data on natural history of IPF. [ Time Frame: End of Study (3 years after last patient will be enrolled) ]
    Characterize and describe the natural history of patients with a recent confirmed diagnosis of IPF, with emphasis on demographics, co-morbidities, medications, and risks for disease progression or death.

  • Data on current practice patterns for diagnosis of IPF. [ Time Frame: End of Study (3 years after last patient will be enrolled) ]
    Understand the current practice patterns for diagnosis of IPF.

  • Data on impact of IPF on patient quality of life. [ Time Frame: End of Study (3 years after last patient will be enrolled) ]
    Describe the impact of IPF on patient quality-of-life (QOL).

  • Blood samples for future research. [ Time Frame: End of Study (3 years after last patient will be enrolled) ]
    Collect longitudinal bio-samples for future research on disease presentation, progression, and subject response to clinical interventions.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Data on management practices compared to existing guidelines. [ Time Frame: End of Study (3 years after last patient will be enrolled) ]
    Compare disease-specific management practices with existing guidelines.

  • Data on center-specific practices on outcomes. [ Time Frame: End of Study (3 years after last patient will be enrolled) ]
    Determine the influence of center-specific practices on patient outcomes.
