Table 1 Recommendations for future development of digital technology in cardiac rehabilitation
1Enhance AI and ICT IntegrationContinue to embed AI in CR procedures, using wearable sensors for early cardiac event detection, thereby improving home-based CR safety and clinician decision-making
2Provide real-time feedbackUtilize AI tools to offer real-time feedback and support to patients, aiming to improve CR adherence and patient engagement
3Develop patient-tailored programsUse AI to thoroughly analyze data from ICT devices for creating personalized CR programs, enhancing health outcomes and quality of life
4Address digital literacy gapsRecognize the challenge of digital literacy and work to make AI-based CR accessible to all patients, reducing health inequalities
5Ensure data privacy and securityFocus on ethical considerations, including data privacy, security, and the transparency of AI decision-making processes
6Evaluate cost and safety concernsStudy the financial and safety implications of implementing digital technologies in CR, especially in unsupervised settings
7Customize interventions for diverse needsTailor digital CR interventions to meet the varied needs and preferences of different patient subgroups, such as those with lower socio-economic status or disabilities
8Maintain the human interaction in digital CRAddress concerns of depersonalization by integrating moral values into digital therapeutic relationships, ensuring compassionate, patient-centered care
