Cardihab partners with private health insurer Bupa to enable member access to its virtual Cardiac Rehab program

Cardihab is proud to announce it has recently partnered with Bupa and Honeysuckle Health to expand access to its digital therapeutic for Cardiac Rehabilitation.  This partnership now means that more people will be able to access the essential cardiac rehabilitation support they need after heart surgery or heart events.

 

Bupa is one of Australia’s largest private health insurers and is a healthcare partner to more than 4.3 million of its customers.  This partnership has the potential to make a significant difference in improving cardiac rehab participation rates, quality of life and outcomes for people living with heart disease.  

Bupa offers a range of personalised health and wellbeing programs that can be completed from the comfort of home. Health service company Honeysuckle Health will deliver the program via their team of registered nurses and virtual healthcare specialists. 

Cardihab CEO Helen Souris says, "Establishing valuable partnerships with key healthcare stakeholders such as Bupa and Honeysuckle Health is the key to delivering quality virtual healthcare to people at the time and place that works conveniently for them.”  

“Our long-term goal is to radically increase equitable access to cardiac rehabilitation and preventative healthcare through proven virtual models and partnerships. We are thrilled that Bupa members can now access our digital cardiac rehabilitation program through this initial pilot.” 

Bupa Director of Connected Care Adam Simson says, “We’re always looking for ways to increase access to healthcare and offer our members greater choice around where their care takes place.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Cardihab to help expand our care offerings that improve health outcomes.” 

 

Echoing the excitement from Cardihab and Bupa, Honeysuckle Health CEO, Rhod McKensey says, “Our mission is to help people lead healthier lives by connecting them with effective, affordable and personalised care, and to that point we’ve seen outstanding results through our partnership with Cardihab to date. The prospect of having the Honeysuckle Health clinical team now delivering the program to more people and supporting Bupa’s valued members is extremely exciting and we can’t wait to help those that need it on their recovery journey.”
