Despite proven benefits, the proportion of people with COPD who receive Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is very small. The current model of a center-based PR program fails to address the needs of many patients with COPD. The most common patient barrier to attendance is travel to center-based programs, particularly for frail patients with more severe COPD who need transportation assistance. Home-based, unsupervised PR has been proposed as an alternative model to hospital-based programs and has been found to be safe and effective. In particular PR post-hospitalization has been reported as the most effective intervention to prevent a hospital readmission; however, the reality is that many times this is not a feasible intervention as only 4% of eligible individuals are able to adhere to PR after a hospital admission (for multiple reasons).While COPD is responsible for nearly 700,000 hospitalizations annually, many of these hospitalizations, which account for a large proportion of the annual direct medical costs of COPD, are potentially preventable readmissions.
In this study we plan to add Health Coaching to PR to promote a behavior change to decrease COPD re-hospitalizations and sustainably improve QOL. We propose a simple system of Remote PR that may fill the practice gap.

Experimental: Intervention- Home Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Home-based Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) with health coaching using a remote system that will allow patients to complete PR at home. The program involves upper and lower extremity exercises, self-report of symptoms (fatigue, breathlessness, physical activity and overall well-being).
Behavioral: Intervention- Home-based Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Participants enrolled in the intervention arm will be offered a Home-based pulmonary rehabilitation program with health coaching.
No Intervention: Control- Usual Care
This arm receives the standard of care which may include PR at a facility. Traditional PR involves attending a medical center gym where they can do exercises and receive disease specific education.
- Adherence to Pulmonary Rehabilitation [ Time Frame: Year 1-5 ]Percentage of Patients completing PR
- Health Related Quality of Life as measured by the Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire (CRQ). [ Time Frame: Years 2-5 ]The CRQ will be completed by participants several times during the study. The questionnaire measures health related quality of life and is a validated tool. This questionnaire measures both physical and emotional aspects of chronic respiratory disease. Higher scores indicate better health related quality of life. (numerical, 1-7 point Likert Scale, emotional and physical summary scores will be reported )
- To determine and compare cost-effectiveness between the 2 arms proposed: subject referred to home-based PR program compared to subjects referred to conventional center-based PR [ Time Frame: Years 2-5 ]The EuroQol Five Dimensions questionnaire (EQ-5D) is a standardized instrument for measuring generic health status. The health status measured with EQ-5D is used for estimating preference weight for that health status, then, by combining the weight with time, a quality-adjusted life year (QALY) can be computed. QALYs gained its used as an outcome in the cost-utility analysis, which is a type of economic evaluation that compares the benefit and cost of healthcare programs or interventions. EQ-5D is one of the most commonly used generic health status measurements, and its good validity and reliability have been reported in various health conditions. It will be the tool to be used in the proposed cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA). The EQ-5D is a 1 -5 digit scale in 5 domains (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression). The 5 digit number obtained is translated into a health status score.
