QCG Care App

QCG Care Tutorial

Following a cardiac event, participating in cardiac rehab has been demonstrated to improve quality of life, and may reduce the chances of experiencing a second cardiac event. QCG cardiologists strongly recommend that all patients who have a cardiac event participate in a 6-8 week program of cardiac rehabilitation soon after they are discharged from hospital. 
 
QCG offers our patients digital cardiac rehab via the QCG Care smartphone app powered by Cardihab. You have the flexibility to complete the program at a place and a time that suits you and fits with your lifestyle. You can start the program as soon as it suits you, without having to wait for a space in a traditional rehab group. You will be supported by the QCG Care team through regular one-on-one phone calls. 

QCG Care will help you:

  • Complete your cardiac rehab with fewer visits to the hospital clinic.
  • Exercise at home.
  • Track your blood pressure, step count, alcohol consumption, smoking habits and more.
  • Record and keep track of your medications. 
  • Learn about heart health and your recovery with our videos and online articles. 
  • Manage stress with guided relaxation audio.
  • Stay on track with regular tasks to improve your health and cardiac knowledge. 

Contact us to talk to our QCG Care team about using the app as part of a remote, flexible cardiac rehabilitation program.
