Focus Area: Referrals

Change concept, change idea, tools and resources.

Referrals strategies are approaches aimed at bolstering cardiac rehabilitation (CR) referral. These include using standardized processes, electronic referrals, and health system data to drive improvement.

Note: Change concepts are general notions that are useful in the development of more specific ideas for changes that lead to improvement. Change ideas are actionable, specific ideas or strategies for changing a process. Each change idea lists evidence- or practice-based tools and resources that can be adapted by or adopted in a health care setting to improve CR utilization.
