This is a descriptive, non-randomized, single institution study intended to develop a registry for interstitial lung disease (ILD), interstitial lung abnormalities (ILA), chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), pulmonary hypertension (PH), and COVID-19 at Rush University Medical Center in order to provide information about the biomarkers, outcomes, risk factors, prognostic indicators, and response to therapy in subjects with ILD/ILA, COPD, PH, or COVID-19. 

The participants will have the option to complete the study questionnaires in paper format, or web based format on their personal electronic devices. Participants will have the option to complete the questionnaires during their office visit or to complete online remotely from home through the online secure REDCap database.
