Welcome to the Cardiac Rehabilitation Network of Ontario (CRNO)

Call-to-Action for Cardiovascular Rehabilitation

The Cardiac Care Network and Ontario Stoke Network merged to form a new organization known as CorHealth Ontario.  

One of the key projects is a ‘call-to-action’ for rehabilitation in patients with cardiac, stroke and vascular disease in Ontario, which is being supported and endorsed by the CRNO.


Approach

  • Analyze the current state of cardiac, vascular and stroke rehabilitation care in Ontario using available data and identify unique and common features across more than one area
  • Identify the gaps and issues in rehabilitation care in each of the three areas
  • Develop a series of priorities/recommendations to be submitted to the MOHLTC early 2018

How You Can Help

 
  • CorHealth Ontario will be contacting your program for information to help develop recommendations and priorities
  • Please complete the details page of your program by logging into the CRNO Directory using the program contact's username and password
    • ! Highlight if you see TIA/Strokes and if you deliver home-based programming
  • You will have an opportunity to provide feedback and input at a symposium held in November (details regarding OTN call-in to follow)
