BACKGROUND Secondary prevention by risk factor modification improves patient outcomes, yet it is often not achieved in clinical practice. Reasons for failure stem from challenges of prioritizing risk factor reduction and engaging patients in changing their behaviors. We hypothesize that a novel telemedicine intervention with tailored patient education could improve cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS To evaluate this intervention, we propose enrolling 450 patients with a recent myocardial… CONTINUE READING
