Innovative Delivery Model Collaborative Center

The successful implementation of innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery will depend upon the close collaboration of cardiac rehabilitation professionals and industry partners to ensure that established standards of delivery that are proven to be successful in traditional delivery are replicated in a home based or other innovative delivery environment. As a result, AACVPR has established the Innovative Delivery Model Collaborative (IDMC) to foster this communication and provide a mechanism for this collaboration.

Innovative Delivery Model Collective Charter

Collaborative Charges

  1. Create a research repository of evidence-based studies supporting the use of innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery models which can be shared with the AACVPR Board of Directors, legislative consultants, and payors as needed.
  2. Engage in open and consistent dialogue about the challenges, opportunities, and approaches to the real world implementation of innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery models. This dialogue will be critical as AACVPR considers how to operationalize these delivery models.
  3. Engage in open and consistent dialogue about the challenges, opportunities, and approaches to reimbursement for innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery models.  The IDMC will collaborate with representatives from CMS and other payors as needed to advocate for increased reimbursement for innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery models.
  4. Identify evidence gaps and provide recommendations for industry or volunteer surveys, white papers, position statements, etc. related to the efficacy, implementation, or reimbursement of innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery models.
  5. Identify opportunities for innovative cardiac rehabilitation delivery model data elements to be included in the AACVPR Cardiac Rehabilitation National Registry.
  6. Identify opportunities to promote research in innovative delivery such as by sponsoring a travel grant to present an abstract on innovative delivery at the AACVPR Annual Meeting
