In a nutshell: Uptake of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) can be poor, especially among women, older patients and ethnic minorities. This study looked at a home-based CR programme called the Care Assessment Programme, which used smartphones to monitor health and exercise, and to deliver motivational and educational material. This home service had higher rates of uptake, adherence and completion than a traditional centre-based programme among post-myocardial infarction patients.
