AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2020

Project Category: Access to health care services

Description: To help people living in rural areas access health care at home, this project piloted a remote cardiac rehabilitation program. Medical Center staff selected participants who were recovering from cardiac events but had a low to moderate risk of developing complications. They provided patients with equipment to monitor their health, including scales, internet-enabled blood pressure cuffs, wearable health monitoring devices and a one-year subscription to monitoring software. Since 2020, the Fairview Regional Medical Center Authority as worked to expand the program to people with chronic health conditions. Additionally, organizers say they are looking into ways to replicate the telemedicine project in other communities.
