Rehabilitation/secondary prevention programs are recognized as integral to the comprehensive care of patients with e.g. cardiovascular, neurological, oncological and orthopaedical disease.

CHES.RehaEvaluation Software Development (ESD) provides a powerful tool (CHES.Reha) to evaluate the effects of a rehabilitation program on quality of life, physical condition and psychological wellbeeing. The purpose of CHES.Reha is to present specific information regarding evaluation, intervention, and expected outcomes in each of the core components of rehabilitation/secondary prevention programs: baseline patient assessment, risk factor management, psychosocial management, physical activity counseling, and exercise training. These recommendations are intended to assist rehabilitation staff in the design and development of their programs and to assist healthcare providers, insurers and policy makers, and consumers in the recognition of the comprehensive nature of such programs.
