health 2

A cardiac rehabilitation program being delivered to Riverland and regional South Australia is being credited with saving lives.

Country Health SA’s Integrated Cardiovascular Clinical Network (iCCnet) delivers the Country Access to Cardiac Health or CATCH telephone program to patients across rural and regional SA who have survived a significant heart event, such as a heart attack.

Network Operations and Research Manager at iCCnet, Rosy Tirimacco, said the CATCH telephone program is focused on improving the heart health of as many country patients as possible.

The CATCH telephone cardiac rehabilitation program has been made possible by funding and support from the Country SA Primary Health Network or PHN.
