The AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust and Million Hearts® Oct. 25 will host a webinar on cardiac rehabilitation, a comprehensive secondary prevention program that helps patients improve key clinical measures, and adopt and practice a healthy lifestyle. The webinar highlights Million Hearts® 2022, a national public-private initiative co-led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to prevent 1 million cardiovascular events by 2022, as well as the work the Million Hearts® CR Collaborative is leading to raise cardiac rehab participation from 20-30% to at least 70% by 2022. Project leaders and hospital representatives will share evidence-based interventions and innovations in care delivery, as well as steps hospitals and others can take to increase cardiac rehab referrals, enrollment and participation.
