Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is Recognized for Excellence

 

HeartTrack, the cardiac rehabilitation program of Alamance Regional Medical Center, has been reaccredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). This certifies that the program meets or exceeds AACVPR standards of practice.

"Our goal is to provide our patients the best care possible," says Alamance Regional LifeStyle Center Director Jamie Athas. "Making sure that we meet or exceed the latest national standards in cardiac rehabilitation is a great way to ensure that."

The voluntary accreditation is a two-year process that examines documentation, policies and procedures, staffing credentials, certifications, and patient outcomes. It is good for three years and is recognized by many insurance companies as a best in industry standard.

Having the certification ensures that patients coming through Alamance Regional’s cardiac rehab program are receiving care that meets evidence based guidelines and standards which will lead to the best short and long term outcomes for the patient.

Studies show cardiac patients who attend a cardiac rehab program decrease their mortality rates from any cause by more than 34 percent.
