Methods: Patients admitted with AECOPD at two different locations were recruited at hospital discharge and randomly assigned (1:1) to either daily teleconsultation for one week in addition to conventional treatment, the TVC group or to conventional treatment, the CT group. The telemedicine equipment consisted of a briefcase with built-in computer including a web camera, microphone and measurement equipment. Primary outcome: consisted of the total number of readmissions within 26 weeks after discharge. Results: A total of 266 patients (mean age 71.5 years, SD 9.5 years) were allocated to either TVC (n=132) or CT (n=134). No significant difference was noted between the groups (p = 0.62).",
