The MacNew has become the European Standard when it comes to measuring patient reported outcome in cardiology, in particular in the cardiac rehabilitation setting. For example, the Austrian working group of cardiac outpatient rehabilitation uses the MacNew in all its centers now for the 7th year. Thousands of patients so far were able to provide valuable feedback to their physicians on their health-related quality of life and particular the improvement through the rehabilitation process over time.
The MacNew is the essential tool to comply with local requirements to monitor patient reported outcome in outpatient cardiac rehabilitation. It is easy to administer and can be implemented into various existing eHealth systems.
