Cardiac Rehabilitation Collaborative (CRC)

The Million Hearts® Cardiac Rehabilitation Collaborative (CRC) is an open forum of multi-disciplinary professionals taking action to help at least 70% of eligible patients participate in cardiac rehabilitation (CR).

The CRC meets virtually on a quarterly basis to exchange information, ideas, and resources to advance progress across strategies outlined in the CRC Action Plan. This strategic planning document is updated every year to advance progress towards the CRC target.

What began as a small work group of subject matter experts has developed into an active group of more than 450 members from more than 230 organizations and agencies following a “road mapexternal icon” of action steps and best practices to increase CR referral, enrollment, and adherence. Members include CR professionals, clinicians and health care teams, hospital and health system administrators, CR participants and their family members, payors, innovators, and other stakeholders who are committed to preventing patients from having a secondary cardiovascular event.
