Date: 2/10/2015

Presented today at the BACPR conference in Manchester is a poster from a study pH Associates have been running in collaboration with Janssen Healthcare Innovation and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.

The results presented show a significant increase in the uptake of cardiac rehab in Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust after the new service model, developed by Janssen Health Innovation was launched. Cardiac Rehab is an evidence based intervention aiming to reduce the likelihood of patients experiencing repeat cardiac events. A number  of studies have previously shown the benefit of CR but despite this uptake rates are only thought to be around 45% nationally. In the study we saw uptake after the introduction of the new service of over 80%. There was also a significant reduction in 12 month readmissions after the introduction of the new service.
