Digital Cardiac Rehabilitation Project

Our goal

To improve the update and completion cardiac rehabilitation by incorporating digital solutions

Cardiac rehabilitation programs reduce hospital readmissions and improve quality of life after a heart attack or heart surgery.  

Cardiac rehab is typically delivered face to face in a health centre-based program after a heart attack or heart surgery. Unfortunately, despite the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation, many Victorians still do not attend.  

The largest barrier to cardiac rehab attendance is distance to the health facility. In regional areas, only 10 to 30 per cent of eligible patients are attending rehabilitation. In this state-funded project, we have partnered with five regional health services to pilot a digital platform to improve access, uptake, and completion of cardiac rehabilitation for regional Victorians closer to home.
