The Innovative Delivery Model Collaborative IDMC was formed last year to foster open and consistent dialogue between AACVPR leaders, industry partners, and other professional stakeholders about the challenges, opportunities, and approaches to the real world implementation of innovative delivery models. Huge thanks to Dr. Todd Brown for leading this effort and to the IDMC members and industry partners for their participation. I wanted to update you on what AACVPR is doing to support and promote the utilization of home-based cardiac rehabilitation. First, I think it is important to point out that traditional, center-based cardiac rehabilitation has decades of clinical trial and observational data supporting its efficacy and has received a Class I highest possible level recommendation in numerous American College of Cardiology ACC and American Heart Association AHA clinical practice guidelines. However, we recognize that despite these data, only a minority of eligible patients attend even one session of center-based cardiac rehabilitation, and even fewer complete the total number of prescribed sessions.
