Digital Cardiac Rehabilitation
Providing care to patients at a time and place that works for them.
Cardihab gives patients flexibility to complete supervised cardiac rehabilitation using a smartphone app which connects with a secure clinician portal. Our scientifically validated digital program supports three models of care for more flexible, convenient and engaging cardiac rehabilitation.
Face-to-face in clinic
Patients attend a traditional clinic-based cardiac rehabilitation program and use the app to record progress, monitor symptoms, view educational materials and receive motivational messages. The data entered by the patient is available to clinicians within the secure portal for reporting. However all gym and group sessions are face-to-face in clinic.
Patients complete their program from home or another location that suits their lifestyle and only need to attend the clinic twice for the initial and follow up assessments. The counseling that is at the heart of a cardiac rehabilitation program is delivered over the telephone by clinicians who are able to track patient progress using the secure Clinician Portal.
Combines in-clinic & at home
Patients attend traditional clinic-based cardiac rehabilitation as planned, but by incorporating Cardihab have the flexibility to switch to remote cardiac rehabilitation should they not be able to attend some in-clinic sessions.
The flexibility offered by Cardihab can overcome barriers to participation by allowing patients to more easily fit their cardiac rehabilitation into their daily lives.
App and/or phone-based program reduces the need for facility visits.
24/7 availability removes the stress of scheduling around work or family commitments.
Can be done anywhere, anytime reducing the stress and expense of transport or parking
Freedom to complete the program as an individual, unconstrained by group scheduling & dynamics.
Cardihab is flexible enough to support you, your team, and your patients in the way you want to work. Benefits include:
Improved access & participation
Because Cardihab is not constrained by business hours or group programming, more patients can start the program and start it as soon as they are referred. By servicing more patients, sooner, hospitals should see fewer cardiac readmissions - the ultimate measure of success.
Meaningful patient insights
Data entered into the app by the patient is synced to the Clinician Portal and can be viewed in patient dashboard reports. This allows clinical teams to track progress, identify and address adherence issues, and inform clinical consultations.
The Clinician Portal also captures PROMS that can be used to enhance patient-clinician interactions and experiences.
Consistent with guidelines
Cardihab's program content has been created with specialist input from cardiologists and cardiac nurses providing the assurance that high quality cardiac rehabilitation is delivered consistently across a network of providers.
The Clinician Portal provides an electronic record of program completion necessary for institutional reporting requirements and patient discharge summaries.
Clinically validated platform
The Cardihab model, originally developed by the CSIRO, has been validated by a world-first randomised controlled trial.
Cardihab is the only clinically validated digital cardiac rehabilitation platform commercially available in Australia.
