Abstract: Conventional center-based cardiac rehabilitation adherence is poor, adversely affecting long-term efficacy. Innovative strategies such as telerehabilitation are perceived as promising alternatives to improve care delivery. This paper presents the results of prior and ongoing work on the design and development of MobileHeart, a telemedical smartphonebased application to be used in secondary prevention for ischemic heart disease patients. Its constituent components are discussed separately, the minimal necessary cardiovascular monitoring requirements are elaborated in more detail. The results are offered starting from a clinical perspective to stress its relevance in the establishment of scientifically/medically sound programs.
