Home Based Cardiac Rehabilitation

Welcome to the Henry Ford Home/Community Based Cardiac Rehabilitation (HBCR) Program

The Home Based Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is designed for patients who are unable to attend the traditional facility based cardiac rehabilitation program at one of our Henry Ford Medical Group locations. This innovative tele-health program uses the free Henry Ford MyChart app and the patient’s own smart phone or other suitable mobile device. This allows patients to exercise in their own homes or community fitness center while being supervised by one of the clinicians in cardiac rehabilitation all done using live two-way videoconferencing. Patients also have access to all of the educational materials used in the traditional cardiac rehabilitation program through short videos focused on their specific health concerns. Patients can view the videos at their own convenience and discuss them or ask questions during their video conference.

Certain patient eligibility criteria may apply, for more information call (313) 972-1919.
