MedicalTemplates - COPD evaluation, 2 page

MedicalTemplates has developed a comprehensive 2 page chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) patient evaluation template. This template is suitable for pulmonologists and any health care provider that manages patients with COPD.



The COPD patient template contains prompters and space for the following required elements for a E&M encounter -

  • Chief complaint

  • History of present illness

  • Past medical and surgical history

  • Social history

  • Family history

  • Review of systems

  • Review of data (labs, tests, imaging)

  • Physical exam

  • Assessment and plan

This one page template contains detailed checklists for the severity of COPD symptoms, current and planned COPD therapy, and other features helpful for a comprehensive COPD treatment plan.

The COPD patient encounter template was designed to include Clinical Performance Measures for COPD developed by the
Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement.

The Clinical Performance Measures for COPD can be downloaded from
