Eur J Cardiovasc Prev Rehabil. In Switzerland, the definition of and compliance with the national quality standards, including the maintenance of a national database, is ensured by the Swiss working group for Cardiovascular Prevention, Rehabilitation and Sports Cardiology (SCPRS). Evidence that cardiac rehabilitation reduces mortality, morbidity, unplanned hospital admissions in addition to improvements in exercise capacity, quality of life and psychological well-being is increasing, and it is now recommended in international guidelines.1 2 3 4 5 6 This review focuses on what cardiac rehabilitation is and the evidence of its benefit and effects on cardiovascular mortality, … Access to a health coach for HBCR participants has potential to improve communication, social support, and education, which can help sustain … Additional information can be found here. In 1982, Medicare policies provided for coverage of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) for patients recovering from myocardial infarction or coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or for those with stable angina. However, because it was greatly underpowered (having recruited at best only 23% of the original predefined sample in each trial arm), RAMIT cannot be viewed as a trial of “efficacy”, that is, to demonstrate whether or not CR “works”, but as a pragmatic trial of its effectiveness as provided “in real life” .It raised concerns due to considerable differences between the centres that recruited patients with respect to content, duration, intensity and volume of the intervention offered to patients. Previous randomized trials have generated low- to moderate-strength evidence that HBCR and center-based CR can achieve similar improvements in 3- to 12-month clinical outcomes. Owing to barriers linked with programme availability and local or national regulations, further efforts are needed in order to ensure a valid choice of high-quality, evidence-based secondary prevention measures that best fit the patient’s psychosocial situation, cardiovascular risk profile and individual preferences.

Among them, the most important are: – Multifactorial individualised telehealth delivery: addresses multiple risk factors and provides individualised assessment and risk factor modification, mostly by telephone contact, – Internet-based delivery: majority of patient–provider contact for risk factor modification via the internet, – Telehealth interventions focusing on exercise, mostly by telephone contact, often including the use of telemonitoring, – Telehealth interventions focusing on recovery: mostly by telephone contact and the intervention content focused on supporting psychosocial recoveryfrom an acute cardiac event such as myocardial infarction or coronary artery bypass graft surgery, – Community- or home-based CR: mostly delivered face-to-face, through either home visits or patient attendance at community centres (for programmes other than traditional CR), – Programmes specific to rural, remote, and culturally and linguistically diverse populations, – Multiple models of care: multifaceted interventions across a number of these categories, – Complementary and alternative medicine interventions.
