How can your organization boost cardiac rehab enrollment?

Patients who have had a cardiac event or procedure can benefit greatly from participation in a cardiac rehabilitation program. It can reduce the risk of death, decrease hospital readmissions, and improve functional status, quality of life, and mood.

Strong evidence shows that cardiac rehab programs can benefit individuals who have had a heart attack, chronic stable angina, received a coronary angioplasty or stent, chronic heart failure, or undergone coronary artery bypass surgery, a heart valve replacement or repair, or a heart or heart-lung transplant.

Million Hearts® 2022 is working to boost participation in cardiac rehab programs to 70% of eligible patients. Check out the Million Hearts® Cardiac Rehabilitation page for tips on how your organization can help meet this goal by boosting cardiac rehab enrollment.
