The purpose of this study is to gather information on the effectiveness of a home-based pulmonary rehabilitation program with health coaching and tele-monitoring for improving patient-reported respiratory-related quality of life and physical activity in patients with fibrotic Interstitial Lung Diseases (f-ILD).


The home-based pulmonary rehabilitation program involves using a computer tablet paired with a pulse oximeter and activity tracker. Gentle upper body exercises, walking and a breathing practice are completed by following along on the computer tablet. Weekly check-in calls by telephone will be provided by a Health Coach to assess clinical status and monitor progress. The exercise portion of the program lasts 12 weeks. There are questionnaires and a research grade activity tracker measuring baseline and post-intervention findings at the end of 12-week period.
