Important information for cardiac rehabilitation providers re COVID-19

We recognise that many centre-based cardiac rehabilitation services have been disrupted in response to mechanisms deployed to manage and contain the spread of COVID-19.

As a clinically proven model of care that enables the remote provision of cardiac rehabilitation to patients in their home, we are keen to work with the network of providers to support the continuity of care for patients throughout this time.

The Cardihab model enables staff to work from home, as well as patients receiving care from home, thereby reducing the risk of contamination and spread.

Remote cardiac rehabilitation may be accessible under Medicare via the Federal Government’s COVID-19 health package.

If you have concerns around the continuity and access to cardiac rehabilitation that you think we could assist with, please contact us.
