Manage Your Health from Home with Cardio@Home

Our comprehensive Cardio@Home programs are made for you and focus on modifying lifestyle behaviors that relate to cardiovascular disease, such as physical activity, nutrition, stress management and more.

Through a holistic approach, the programs are tailored to help your heart heal and improve your health and quality of life and achieve optimal recovery.

If you have one or more chronic conditions, let the Cardio@Home team at CIS help you manage your health care from the comfort of your own home

How It Works

Cardio@Home communication may be via phone calls, texting or email. These frequent non-face-to-face visits could help reduce the need for you to come to the clinic for an in-person visit. For example, you may have the option of a phone call to review a new medication that was prescribed for you, rather than coming to the clinic for a visit.

We work closely with each patient to develop a unique and personalized care plan to address your needs and manage your care based on your medical history and conditions. In addition to complete care coordination with your other healthcare providers, Cardio@Home offers the convenience of having open communication to allow us to better manage your care while keeping you at home. Patients can call their Cardio@Home team through a designated phone number at any time for things such as worsening symptoms, medication refills or assistance with getting an appointment with another health care provider. Cardio@Home is designed to be your one-stop-shop in health care.

How Do I Enroll?

Your doctor may recommend that you enroll in one of the Cardio@Home programs at your clinic visit. However, you may also request to be enrolled at any time, as long as you have seen a CIS physician within one year. The Cardio@Home team will evaluate whether you qualify for the program. If you qualify, you will be asked to give written or verbal consent. Next, an initial visit will be scheduled to discuss the program and answer any questions you may have.

Cardio@Home Programs

Chronic Care Management

This program allows a CIS provider to connect with patients via non-face to face visits such as phone calls, emails, text messages and videos to help patients monitor their chronic conditions.

Remote Warfarin Monitoring

Our Warfarin monitoring process offers patients the capability to have their INR checked in the comfort of their own home. This saves time, provides consistency and frequency of reporting, and offers easy integration with technology and electronic health records.

The advantages of self-monitoring include convenience and freedom for the patient, patient empowerment/control over their condition and treatment, and increased patient satisfaction–all of which may improve quality of life.

Transitional Care Management

Transitional Care Management (TCM) is a program offered to our patients to successfully transition them from the hospital to home, preventing any gaps in care and making for a successful transition home. When leaving the hospital, the patient may be dealing with a medical crisis, new diagnosis, or change in medication therapy, and TCM allows them to see their doctor within 72 hours to make sure their care plan is established and the patient feels safe and secure.

Remote Patient Monitoring

This program is similar to our Chronic Care Management program and patients are able to be cared for by our team from the convenience and comfort of their home. RPM enhances the monitoring by adding a home device, such as a Blood Pressure Cuff or weight scale.

Patients complete a daily questionnaire then take their vital signs on the appropriate device. This information is sent to one of our nurses in the Virtual Care Center and the patient is monitored 24/7. This remote monitoring can last between 30-90 days, depending on the needs of the patient. Patients aged 20 years or older without established cardiovascular disease (CVD) should undergo periodic cardiovascular risk assessment every three to five years.

Principle Care Management

This program is for patients with one serious, chronic condition that has lasted for more than 3 months. Like Chronic Care Management, it allows patients to connect with their provider through phone calls, emails, text messages and videos to manage their condition.
