Making the case for cardiac rehabilitation: modelling potential impact on readmissions – NHS Improvement – March 2013

“This report summarises the findings of a short study, commissioned by NHS Improvement, which models the relationship between uptake of CR and unplanned cardiac readmission rates both nationally and at commissioner level.

The primary purpose of the study was to examine the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) potential of CR and to establish whether the benefits of CR outweigh the costs in terms of the potential impact on readmissions alone.

Over and above the well-documented, positive effects of rehabilitation on mortality, morbidity and quality of life, the results suggest that increasing the uptake of ’gold standard’ CR has the potential to reduce cardiac-related readmissions and deliver significant financial savings.”
