Respiratory therapies mark the future of healthcare. The personalization of these therapies, moving away from a closed and static model, would improve the capacity of the healthcare system. These changes would result in a minimum budget saving of 30 million euros and would improve patient care, according to a report by EY.
Due to the pandemic context, added to the chronicity, smoking, and the aging of the population, it is considered an increased risk that someone receives respiratory therapy for the first time in Spain: a circumstance that generates greater economic stress for the healthcare system.
The EY report stresses the need to make clinical care more specific and proposes segmenting care, which would lead to better care for the citizen. It also addresses the current management of the so-called “non-compliant patient”. In this regard, it is claimed that, with more personalized treatment, patient loyalty would increase as they would feel better cared for.

According to the consultant’s report, the annual evolution of patients is currently between 8% and 12% on average, but financing does not follow the same line
The resulting savings would de-stress healthcare services due to fewer visits and hospitalizations. EY also proposes to increase the financial resources allocated to respiratory therapies, which would guarantee the quality of the service for a population increasingly exposed to these treatments.
According to the consulting firm’s report, the current annual increase in the number of patients requiring respiratory therapy is, on average, between 8% and 12%. Funding does not follow the same line. In this section, the increase contemplated in budgets and tenders, since it is a public-private partnership, is only 3%. This percentage is equivalent to providing care for only 30% of new patients.
The autonomous communities apply different healthcare policies, a fact which puts the equity of citizens at risk
The management of public competencies is an added problem. In Spain, the autonomous communities apply different health policies with respect to these therapies, and the equity of citizens in accessing treatments with the same quality standards is put at risk.
The transition proposed by EY, evolving towards the personalization of respiratory therapies, would put Spain in the same context as other countries in the region. In these cases, the patient assumes the responsibility of deciding which service proposal is best suited to his or her situation.
