NorthShore launches virtual at-home care

Evanston, Ill.-based NorthShore-Edward-Elmhurst Health is launching virtual cardiac at-home care through a partnership with Motiv.

The virtual program intends to address challenges associated with traditional cardiac rehabilitation care by providing one-on-one health coaching and behavioral health support. 

Patients at NorthShore-Edward-Elmhurst Health's Highland Park Hospital (Ill.) will be the first to experience the six-month program, according to a June 7 NorthShore-Edward-Elmhurst Health news release.

"There can be a tendency to underestimate how often patients who survive a cardiac event experience a confusing blend of emotions that range from gratitude and relief to fear and uncertainty of what the future holds. We have an opportunity to change that," NorthShore Cardiologist Adam Silver, MD, said in the release. "I am excited to see this program focus on the human element of cardiac recovery as we aim to optimize the journey that patients take toward a higher quality of overall health and wellness."
