Lifestyle Modification App for Coronary Heart Patients This App allows you to customize a notifications to send patients with Coronary Artery Disease.
Evidence In 2015, a randomized clinical trial found that among patients with coronary heart disease, the use of a lifestyle-focused text messaging service compared with usual care resulted in a modest improvement in LDL-C level and greater improvement in other cardiovascular disease risk factors.
How this App can Help Cardiovascular disease prevention, including lifestyle modification, is important but underutilized. This app allows you to utilize mobile health to improve outcomes for your patients
Acute coronary syndromes: morbidity, mortality, and pharmacoeconomic burden.
Meta-analysis included 11 randomized trials of 2285 patients with coronary disease (most but not all post-MI) who were assigned to exercise rehabilitation or usual care. Exercise was associated with a significant 28 percent reduction in all-cause mortality. There was also a possible, but nonsignificant, 24 percent reduction in recurrent MI in the exercise rehabilitation group. Importance of exercise is reflected in this app.

A higher-quality diet was associated with a lower risk of recurrent CVD events among people≥55 years of age with CVD or diabetes mellitus. Highlighting the importance of healthy eating by health professionals would substantially reduce CVD recurrence and save lives globally.
This finding is reflected in this app.
