Million Hearts: Strategies and Resources to Increase Cardiac Rehabilitation Participation

Thu, 9/7/2023 at 12:00 pm - Thu, 9/7/2023 at 1:00 pm (PDT)

Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is a high-impact, high-value intervention that remains underutilized in health systems across the country. Comagine Health, in partnership with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Million Hearts® initiative, invites physicians, advanced care practitioners, nurses, cardiac rehab program managers and other health care professionals to join us to learn about the strategies and resources needed to optimize care for patients within cardiac rehabilitation programs.

About the Speaker

Haley Stolp is a health scientist in the Division of Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention at the CDC. Ms. Stolp manages the cardiac rehabilitation portfolio for the Million Hearts® initiative and leads the Million Hearts® Cardiac Rehabilitation Collaborative, an open forum of multidisciplinary professionals taking action to help at least 70% of eligible patients participate in CR. She is the lead author of the Million Hearts®/AACVPR Cardiac Rehabilitation Change Package, Second Edition that will be released in summer 2023.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the current CR delivery landscape in the United States.
  • Identify and share at least one strategy or resource from the Change Package to increase patient CR referrals.
  • Learn about patient populations that are disproportionately underrepresented in CR programs (e.g., women, racial/ethnic minorities, rural residents, low-income individuals).
  • Identify at least one strategy to improve CR participation among underrepresented populations.
