Cardiopulmonary Outpatient Rehabilitation Using Mobile Technology

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02671669
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : February 2, 2016
Last Update Posted : May 22, 2020

NYU Langone Health

Brief Summary:
This is a randomized controlled trial of the feasibility and utility of implementing a smartphone application (MVN) to maintain compliance with a Heart Healthy lifestyle after discharge from a cardiac outpatient rehabilitation program. Patients will be randomized into one of two groups: usual care (control: UC) or Movn mobile application (intervention: MVN). This study will improve and strengthen data collection from this at-risk patient population by recording baseline clinical and psycho social measures while gaining insight into self-reporting of physical activity and frequency between the UC and MVN groups.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Usual Care (UC) Behavioral: Usual Care
Discharge packet of Heart Healthy instructions, with self-report health status, quality of life and psychosocial questionnaires, as well as other educational handouts, exit interview to review exercise progress, receive referrals to additional medical services they might need after discharge from the program, with physician.

Active Comparator: Movn application (MVN) Behavioral: Movn application (MVN)

Intervention participants will receive the same discharge packet as the UC group along with their exit interview and will receive the following:

  • Participant individualized Heart Healthy instructions for post-cardiac rehabilitation will be integrated into the MVN application including daily medication reminders, physical activity prompts, educational materials, and patient-reported outcome assessment of behavior and psychosocial status.
  • Text messages will be used on an ad hoc basis to provide positive feedback to the participant; two-way messaging between the participant and the research coordinator will be available to provide opportunities to answer specific questions.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Difference in rate of exercise compliance in standard post cardiac rehabilitation compared to the increased rates of exercise compliance observed with the help of smartphone applications [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
  2. Difference in Diastolic blood pressure in subjects who have received andard post cardiac rehabilitation compared to of exercise compliance observed with the help of smartphone applications [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
