Pulmonary care

The cardiology literature has quite a few articles showing that medical care of CHF, CAD and ACS (not counting caths obviously) by a cardiologist improves survival and outcomes compared to care by PCPs alone. There is also some data supporting ICU care by dedicated intensivists. Do you have any handy/good references on outcomes and care of COPD, asthma, lung Ca, etc. whether seen by pulmonary or not?
