Scientific Background

Research Questions

LifeQmed aims to document and analyse the process and outcome of inpatient cardiovascular rehabilitation stays. This should happen within a variably structured and delimited examination space!

Key aspects

  • Gender equality with regard to access to rehabilitation as well as transition from acute care to rehabilitation
  • Individual planning of treatments according to the therapy plan
  • Medical outcome and quality of the process
  • Financial resources deployed vis-à-vis quantified rehabilitation outcome

Qualitative Research

  • Development of a big-data-driven outcome-measurement model based on quantitative research data
  • This happens along the lines of the heart surgery model which is based on the EUROSCORE
  • The model is able to evaluate the process and course of individual rehabilitation treatments as well as evaluate and adapt quality and efficiency across facilities in Europe


  • Development of quantitative parameter, outcome criteria, and measurement criteria incl. relevant variables for the scoring
  • Scoring of patients based on the ICF classification


  • Evaluation according to the value-based care model based one a specifically developed score. This score is based on
    • ICF data (biological, psychological, social)
    • Clinical process
    • Economic data (structural costs, treatment costs)
  • Consequently, this score enables a comparison of value-based care across facilities in Europe and monitors the assumed gender-specific negative weighting of cardiovascular rehabilitation
