Home Based Cardiac Rehab is a remote care program powered by
Pattern Health and Duke University Medical Center have combined their expertise in digital health and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation to develop an innovative remote cardiac rehabilitation program that allows cardiac rehab providers to efficiently serve more patients, and specifically better serve patients unable to participate in onsite rehabilitation programs, a rapidly growing patient population as a result of COVID-19.
The Duke HBCR program is fully reimbursable via the standard cardiac rehabilitation billing codes, which are approved for telehealth delivery as of October 2020. Facilities and operational costs for HBCR are generally lower compared to center-based cardiac rehab, making HBCR not only convenient for providers and patients but economically attractive and easy to scale as well.
Developed and tested by Dr. William Kraus, a leading cardiac rehabilitation specialist at Duke University, the HBCR program continues to collect data to validate and measure its impact on outcomes and cost of care, but early adherence results are positive with over 90% of participants completing the program.
The HBCR program developed by Duke is now being made available for use by health systems and providers outside of the Duke University Medical Center network via Pattern Health’s secure, HiTRUST certified, HIPAA compliant, and interoperable platform.Request Information
