Behavioral: KardioPAC Mobile Application
Like those in the SOC CR arm, participants assigned to the CR+KardioPAC arm will receive standard of care and attend CR as prescribed by their physician. Additionally, they will receive access to the digital app, KardioPAC, & a BP device for home use that will record their BP readings in the app.
KardioPAC is a remote patient monitoring system that allows providers to monitor patients and send out daily reminders. It integrates with BP monitors and fitness watches to collect patient health information at home. The information is uploaded to the HIPAA-compliant server and presented on the website for providers to read. Its reminder system can be customized to meet diverse clinical needs.
Lastly, the Kura Care in-house Registered Nurse will provide 20-30 min of health coaching to intervention arm participants on a weekly or bi-weekly basis via the app. The coaching will include greetings, review of medication adherence, encouragement to exercise, and symptom management, if applicable.
Other: Standard of Care
During the prescribed cardiac rehabilitation, the SOC CR intervention participants will receive standard of care by attending the 36-72 sessions of CR as prescribed by his/her physician and administered by the University of California San Diego Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Center.
