Virtual Learning Modules


Our Virtual Learning Modules provide high-quality, comprehensive education. These can be used in your gym or as part of your home-based cardiac rehab program.

Case managers assign any of nine specific modules based on a patient's individual needs. Once a patient has completed a module, they are directed to take a quiz to test their newfound knowledge. The detailed quiz results are automatically emailed back to the case managers. Case managers can then use their one-on-one time with the patients to clarify any topics that patients did not fully understand. 


“...the Intelligent Option home-based modules are now an integral part of our cardiac rehab program. They have stream-lined our educational process while providing a feedback method that demonstrates patient understanding and/or need for remediation/reinforcement. This has decreased our workload and increased both staff and patient satisfaction. Thank you!”

How it Works


Designed specifically for cardiac rehab patients, our nine learning modules are engaging and use patient-centered language to present information and concepts in ways that are easy to understand. Important information about disease risk factors is taught in small, digestible pieces for easy retention and interspersed with relevant quotes and images. Each module is comprehensive, covering a specific topic that is relevant to cardiac rehab patients.


Case managers assign only the modules their patients need, providing a customized, meaningful learning experience. Patients can learn in the gym or in their own homes and move through the modules at their own pace. At the end of each module, patients are directed to take a quiz to assess their understanding of the information. The detailed quiz results are emailed to the case managers for review.

The nine modules are as follows:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Blood lipid management
  • Diabetes
  • Exercise
  • HTN and blood pressure management
  • Nutrition
  • Smoking cessation
  • Stress management
  • Weight loss

Why it Works

The Intelligent Option works for five simple reasons:

  • The language is patient-centered, making it easy to understand and digest.
  • Information is presented in an engaging format and the quizzes are designed to emphasize the most important points in each module.
  • Patients can access vital educational material in the gym or in the comfort of their homes, at their own pace.
  • The fully-referenced information provides the education patients need to make healthier lifestyle choices.
  • Detailed quiz results allow case managers to use their one-on-one time with patients more efficiently by focusing only on information the patients missed on the quiz.

Accessing the Modules and Quizzes

Once a cardiac rehab program purchases a subscription, The Intelligent Option will provide a customized link to the virtual learning modules and quizzes. Case managers then share the link with patients, who access the modules and quizzes using a computer or tablet. 


The virtual learning modules are sold as an annual subscription for $500. All nine modules and the associated quizzes can be used by all of your cardiac rehab patients for a 12-month period.
