Referral patterns to a university-based cardiac rehabilitation program

Academic Article


  • Referral rates to our cardiac rehabilitation program among patients hospitalized for coronary heart disease were computed over an 18-month period. Only 8.7% of eligible patients were referred, suggesting that more education targeting physicians, patients, and insurers is needed and barriers to participation must be systematically addressed.
