Pittsburgh, PA- Recora and Jefferson Cardiology Association (JCA) announce their collaboration to expand cardiac rehabilitation in Pennsylvania through a virtual, home-based program. This expands on Recora’s existing Pennsylvania partnership with Geisinger Health System. Together, Recora and JCA will transform cardiac rehabilitation and improve patient care in Alleghany, Westmoreland, Washington, and Fayette counties by addressing the underutilization of this critical service.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a care standard designed to improve cardiovascular health for patients recovering from heart conditions or surgeries. Research consistently demonstrates the clinical benefits of cardiac rehabilitation, including reducing the risk of future cardiac events and improving quality of life.
According to recent statistics, only five percent of eligible patients in Pennsylvania are adhering to this care standard of cardiac rehabilitation. This concerning trend is attributed to various factors, including limited access and lack of awareness.
Jefferson Cardiology Association’s main location in Jefferson Hills has been at the forefront of cardiovascular care in Pittsburgh for over 35 years. Renowned for its commitment to patient-centered care and cutting-edge cardiology treatments, JCA has established itself as a trusted resource for heart health in the region.
"We are thrilled to offer our patients additional support at home through our partnership with Recora. Patients with heart disease benefit from continued exercise, education, nutrition, and medication support. Together, we will provide these services to patients from the comfort of their own homes,” stated Dr. Mulock from JCA.
By combining JCA's clinical expertise with Recora's technology solutions, this collaboration aims to bridge the gap in cardiac rehabilitation utilization and make a significant impact on heart health in Pennsylvania.
