Innovation in cardiac care: How health systems and physician groups use virtual initiatives to bolster patient loyalty and mitigate staff shortages

Thursday, September 15th, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CT

Health systems and physician groups are facing unprecedented challenges in staffing and patient engagement, particularly in cardiac care. One area of opportunity is cardiac rehabilitation - a Class 1A recommendation for many cardiac patients. Despite its promises, cardiac rehab faces low engagement, high operating costs, and staffing shortages. As a result, many executives and physicians are turning to virtual initiatives, such as virtual cardiac rehabilitation, to drive patient engagement and more favorable economics.

During this webinar, hear from cardiac leaders at Tampa General Hospital and Recora on:

1. The three key challenges with cardiac rehab today
2. How virtual cardiac rehab can improve patient outreach, access, and engagement
3. Why Tampa General Hospital adopted a virtual cardiac recovery program, including how it aims to improve revenue, outcomes, and staffing
