July and August have been busy- and exciting! With team meetings, home care visits, literature reviews, and community outreach, we are working hard to put together our home-based cardiac rehab model, and prepare to impact patients and communities in the Greater New York Area.
After drafting our study protocol and applying for IRB approval, we are focusing on getting up-to-speed on the latest techniques and policies. We have been meeting with content experts and the logistics team to start the design of our intervention and plan for the implementation.
Most importantly, we have been spending time with our patients! With home care visits throughout Manhattan, we are starting to understand the needs of our community and how we can help meet them.
