Women’s Heart Secrets starts with the shared medical appointment (SMA), a popular trend in healthcare. An SMA combines the traditional one-on-one healthcare provider visit with a chance to interact with other women, along with various healthcare experts, in a small group setting. Following the SMA, you will have follow-up one-on-one meetings with members of your healthcare team to monitor and address issues specific to your personal needs.
Women’s Heart Secrets collaborates with your physician to formulate the best plan for you, but it is not a replacement for your regular physician visits. As a Women’s Heart Secrets participant, you will have that extra time to ask questions and discuss issues that are specifically targeted to your long-term heart health.
A Women’s Heart Secrets SMA provides:
Education on topics directly related to heart health
A one-on-one exam with a cardiology nurse practitioner
One-on-one consultation with a registered dietitian and an exercise specialist
Opportunities for conversations with other women in the program
Women’s Heart Secrets will be billed as a medical office visit. Check with your insurance carrier if you have questions about coverage or deductibles that may apply.
