Cardiovascular diseases and especially coronary artery disease remain the first cause of mortality in Switzerland. Comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation is a validated multidisciplinary intervention, which represents the most appropriate strategy of implementing an effective secondary cardiovascular prevention to reduce the impact of cardiovascular diseases. However, less than half of patients after a myocardial infarction and a tiny proportion of patients with heart failure participate in a rehabilitation program in our country. This article summarizes the current state of cardiac rehabilitation in Switzerland, as well as future developments of cardiac tele-rehabilitation that have accelerated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
