How it works

Let's UnDo heart disease together.

Identifying eligible patients

Patients in your practice are eligible who have one or more of these diagnoses for reimbursement.

  • Stable angina pectoris

  • Prior coronary artery bypass surgery

  • Prior percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or stent

  • Prior heart or heart-lung transplant

  • Prior heart valve repair or replacement

  • Heart failure

  • Prior acute myocardial infarction (within the preceding 12 months)

Referring patients

You can refer patients in only 5 minutes. You retain full control over all therapeutic decisions

We’ll handle the rest, including evaluating your patients, and billing insurance.

Ordering tests

Please order a graded exercise test, lipid panel, and HgbA1c if your patient has not had one in the preceding 3 months.

The graded exercise test will be used to create an individualized exercise prescription and treatment plan.

Outcomes Reporting

We will keep you apprised of your patient’s health progress.

We will send you monthly reports while your patient is in the program.

Most physicians realize it’s very difficult to get patients to make lifestyle changes yet this program has been very successful in doing so.

90% adherence after one year

Most of the people who enroll in this 9-week program are still following it one year later. In contrast, only 30% of people prescribed cholesterol-lowering drugs are still taking them after only six months.

Why? Because most people feel so much better, so quickly, it reframes the reason for making these changes from fear of dying to joy of living.

Your patients’ healthier, happier, empowered future awaits.

We have data from over 17,000 patients who have successfully transformed their lives. Most became free of chest pain (angina) during the first few weeks.

Did you know?

Participants achieve better clinical outcomes and completion rates online (>90%) than standard cardiac rehabilitation.
