The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) recently announced an expected release date of June 2012 for the National Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry. As stated on the AACVPR web site, the registry will provide cardiac rehabilitation programs with national outcomes data for benchmarking and demonstrate the positive impact of cardiac rehabilitation on the morbidity, mortality, physical function, and quality of life of heart patients across the United States.Demo the VersaCare system.

ScottCare Cardiovascular Solutions, maker of http://scottcare.com/versacare-homee, a multi-parameter telemetry solution with integrated program management and outcomes, will provide seamless integration with the national registry, so cardiac rehab programs are able to contribute all relevant data, fulfilling the registry’s cause.

“ScottCare has been a long-standing supporter to develop a national registry, and we are pleased to see the project is moving forward,” said Ken Zajaczkowski, General Manager of ScottCare. “This is the last step in automatically integrating the data and outcomes already captured with our TeleRehab™ product with data across all cardiac rehab programs.”

TeleRehab™ VersaCare will communicate directly with the registry through an application programming interface (API).

“VersaCare currently features built-in patient outcomes data and management,” said Snehraj Merchant, Vice President of Engineering at ScottCare. “Already having that data in our system, makes it convenient for us to feed it directly into the registry.”
