Project: Healthy Heart Programme
Recent evidence suggests that 90% of heart attacks are preventable by addressing certain modifiable risk factors, including nutrition, cholesterol, and physical activity. Based on this research, the Innerstrength team plan to develop evidence-based, nutrition specific content which can delivered via the TickerFit platform to patients post discharge. Once developed, the team will pilot the Healthy Hearts programme with clinical partner, Mater Private Hospital, to demonstrate the effectiveness of digital patient engagement and education programmes for patients that have undergone a cardiac procedure.
