NEW YORK, June 21, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Recora, the leader in virtual cardiac recovery, today announced its partnership with Arizona Heart Rhythm Center to provide virtual cardiac rehabilitation services for heart disease patients in the practices service area. The virtual care program expands upon Arizona Heart Rhythm Center's mission to provide the latest treatment options and achieve superior outcomes for patients.
Recora's Virtual Recovery Program is a turnkey solution for providers that delivers the technology, staffing, and outreach required to launch and maintain the delivery of virtual cardiac rehabilitation to patients. By offering this virtual care solution, Arizona Heart Rhythm Center is seeking to improve enrollment, engagement, and program completion for heart disease patients throughout its cardiovascular specialists' offices serving the Phoenix, Sun City, Gilbert, Prescott, and Yuma communities.
"Partnering with Recora to offer virtual cardiac rehab to our patients was a natural step in our strategy to offer the best, cutting-edge care to our patients," said Dr. Vijay Swarup, Medical Director, Arizona Heart Rhythm Center. "This technology creates an entirely new level of access for heart disease patients in our community to properly address the necessary steps to complete cardiac rehabilitation and improve their health to add years to their lives."
The Recora Program includes many virtual tools to keep patients connected throughout their recovery journey, including on-demand support from care teams, 24/7 chat, and additional resources to meet their customized needs along the way.
"It's an honor for Recora to partner with Arizona Heart Rhythm Center and expand access to so many heart disease patients throughout the state of Arizona," said Recora CEO Abhishek Chandra. "There has long been a problem in cardiac rehabilitation where patient enrollment and engagement remains very low despite overwhelming evidence to the benefits of cardiac rehab. Arizona Heart Rhythm Center can make a tremendous impact by offering a virtual solution to help solve these critical access issues."
