Reinventing Cardiac Rehabilitation Delivery

Cardihab's Digital Cardiac Rehabilitation (DCR) solution gives clinicians the ability to deliver more convenient and flexible cardiac rehabilitation services to patients. Our solution provides patient smartphone apps and a clinician portal that complements traditional, face-to-face delivery while also supporting a new, scientifically validated remote delivery model.

"Recording and seeing weight and blood pressure every day helped me to be more motivated to exercise and be more active. While on the program I joined a gym and aimed to improve my step count from the previous day."

The Cardihab™ App

Patient Recorded Data

Cardihab’s apps make it easy for patients to record data relevant to their program, such as health measures (step count, blood pressure, smoking use, sleep, stress levels, and other items configured on the portal by the clinician), exercise sessions and symptoms.

Keep Track of Goals

Patients can also review the goals they and their clinician set, watch/read education materials and review educational and motivational in-app notifications sent regularly throughout their program.

Connect to Sensors

Data acquisition is a mix of manual and automated data entry from on-phone sensors (e.g. step count) and integrated devices. Our Apple iPhone and Android smartphone apps can use Bluetooth to wirelessly acquire data from A&D’s UA-651BLE Blood Pressure Monitor & UC-352BLE Personal Scale.

Models of Care

The Cardihab™ DCR portal supports three models of care which help clinicians deliver more flexible, convenient, and engaging cardiac rehabilitation, manage patients during their rehabilitation journey, and better understand how the cardiac rehabilitation service is performing

Traditional Cardiac Rehabilitation

Patients attend a traditional cardiac rehabilitation (TCR) program and use the app to record progress through their program, monitor symptoms, view educational materials and receive motivational messages. The data entered by the patient is available for clinicians for reporting, but all contact with the patient is face-to-face during gym/clinic sessions.

Remote Cardiac Rehabilitation

Patients complete their rehab entirely remotely - attending only for initial and follow-up assessments. The counselling that is at the heart of a cardiac rehab program is delivered by a clinician during telephone calls supported by the clinical portal.

Hybrid Cardiac Rehabilitation

Patients attend TCR as planned, but are offered the flexibility to switch from TCR to Remote CR should they not be able to attend some TCR sessions.

The Science

Cardihab's Remote Cardiac Rehabilitation model provides clinicians with the ability to remotely deliver a scientifically validated, comprehensive Phase II cardiac rehabilitation program that is based on Australian guidelines. This model of care was scientifically validated in a world first randomised controlled trial (RCT) by researchers from the CSIRO and Queensland’s Prince Charles Hospital. The trial demonstrated that the Remote Cardiac Rehabilitation model improves patient uptake (+29%), adherence (+38%) and completion (+70%), while significantly reducing the number of centre visits (-86%) and delivering equivalent clinical outcomes when compared to traditional care. Importantly, both patients and clinicians report positive experiences of remote delivery in research and subsequent "business as usual" settings.

The CSIRO/QH research provides the evidence base for Cardihab's product and was published in the prestigious journal Heart. The paper was also acknowledged by Heart and Nature Reviews Cardiology as a world-first randomised controlled trial of smartphone-based cardiac rehabilitation.

Support

Cardihab™ is acutely aware of the challenges that come with gaining funding and introducing change to clinical practice. We therefore support customers in their transition to digital cardiac rehabilitation with resources for business case development and by framing the transition as a clinical redesign project. We provide hands-on training and intensive support for clinicians, along with materials (e.g. posters & flyers) to promote the new capability to patients and referrers.
