It was great for Cardihab to appear on Dr Ross Walker's Healthy Living 2GB radio show. As a cardiologist, Dr Walker has always said cardiac rehabilitation is a vital part of a patient’s recovery from cardiac events and recognises that participation rates are a key challenge to improving outcomes.
The focus of the segment was for Cardihab CEO Helen Souris to discuss the results of the recently published study in JMIR that demonstrated substantial increases in participation from 21% to 63% when our Cardihab platform was offered to participants that declined traditional cardiac rehab programs.
As Dr Walker described cardiac rehabilitation is a comprehensive supervised program of regular physical exercise, education, and medicine management supported by clinicians and Cardihab can enable patients to receive this comprehensive program in the convenience of their home.
