Cardiac Rehab Roundtable


Evidence suggests hospital readmissions and all-cause mortality rates are reduced when patients who have experienced a heart attack participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program. However, even as providers are striving to improve and sustain the quality of delivered cardiovascular care, this is often a missed opportunity.

During this webinar presented by the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign (HHQI), leading national experts will discuss the diseases/diagnoses that qualify a patient to participate in cardiac rehab and the services that are included. We’ll also review available alternatives for those patients who are unable to attend an outpatient program.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Describe two of the Million Hearts 2022® cardiac rehabilitation priorities.
  2. Explain three benefits and potential barriers of outpatient cardiac rehabilitation.
  3. Discuss two alternatives for the home health setting when outpatient cardiac rehab is not possible.
  4. List three methods to improve home health patients’ cardiac rehabilitation participation.
