“With steadily increasing financial pressure on healthcare organizations, and now the devastating effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, providers must explore new ways of delivering terrific care remotely supported by sustainable business models. I believe phas3 will dramatically improve cardiac rehab patient engagement through program completion, helping providers deliver higher quality heart care at lower cost.”
