With a focus on promoting self-care, Rehab+ supports patients for over one year, helping them to take control of their own recovery treatment plan after experiencing a heart attack. WHY IT MATTERS Through the platform, users are able to set personal objectives to reduce their cardiac risk, and establish lifestyle changes accordingly. Rehab+ aims to equip patients to stay engaged with their own health in real-time and to manage their cardiac risk factors as a chronic condition to prevent a next heart attack.
Rehab+ is endorsed by the Spanish Society of Cardiology (SEC), Netherlands Society of Cardiology (NVVC) and Foro Español de Pacientes (Spanish Patients Forum). To develop Rehab+, Amgen also partnered with rehabilitation hospitals in Spain, including La Paz in Madrid, Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona, Virgen de la Victoria in Malaga and Zuyderland in the Netherlands.
Amgen Europe and Amgen Spain will be programme leaders whilst Liva Healthcare will provide the technology and the patient app. The new platform is part of OPTIMISE, an Amgen-led cardiovascular programme which aims to transform patient care and demonstrate improvement in outcomes through a range of initiatives which support patients at high risk of cardiovascular disease.
Earlier this year, Liva Healthcare raised €24.5 million in a Series B round to drive European leadership in digital chronic disease prevention and management. Meanwhile, the EU has approved an AI technology that can identify people at risk of a fatal heart attack, years before it happens. The CaRi-Heart technology utilises coronary CT angiogram (CTTA) scans already performed in clinical practice. THE LARGER CONTEXT
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Health recently announced that Rehab+ won the Education Award. This will enable the app to be launched in four rehabilitation centres across Spain and the Netherlands and evaluated by Maastricht University. Based on the scientific evaluation, further uptake of Rehab+ in additional countries will be discussed. Through the app, patients will receive support from a professional coach and receive educational content based on their personal needs.
