Reuters Health - 06/01/2022 - Cardiac rehabilitation delivered via telemedicine may be more cost-effective for preventing relapse in coronary artery disease patients than traditional in-person delivery, a Dutch study suggests. Researchers examined data on 300 patients with coronary artery disease who were randomly assigned to telemedicine or traditional in-person delivery of cardiac rehabilitation for relapse prevention. The study assessed quality of life at one year, as well as societal costs based on cardiac health care costs, noncardiac health care costs, and costs not directly related to medical care. Mean intervention costs were significantly higher for cardiac rehabilitation delivered via telemedicine, at 224 euros ($252.81) compared with traditional in-person delivery at 156 euros ($176.06). Mean societal costs were lower with telemedicine at 20,495 euros ($23,130.66) than with traditional in-person delivery at 24,381 euros ($27,516.40), although this differe...
