CARE4CARDIO® – so you can take an active part in everyday life in spite of your cardiac insufficiency

Physical exertion that feels like the heaviest labour. Getting winded when doing everyday tasks and suffering from a lack of energy. When the heart grows weak, the physical capacity also declines. Good management of this condition can help prevent the deterioration of your health. We support you in this with the CARE4CARDIO® health programme developed by Health Care System Schweiz GmbH (HCSG).

The programme consists of regular telephonic coaching sessions that teach you how to slow down the progression of cardiac insufficiency by adapting your lifestyle. With the additional telemonitoring service, early warning signs can be identified and hospitalisation avoided.

Our offer for you: CARE4CARDIO®

For the time being the offer is only available in German.
