The National Registry of Myocardial Infarction (NSZR) is working effectively in Hungary. The death caused by heart attack in acute stage shows significantly downward tendency. The result are unfavourable when comparing data in a 30-days term with international data. In these times are rehabilitation programs the safest for the patients. Studying the effectiveness of the institutional rehabilitation quite objective, the National Registry of Myocardial Infarction In-Patient Rehabilitation Database (NSZR-FRA) is working since January 2014. Nationwide we have information about 9% of the in-patients who survived a heart attack and took part in rehabilitation. The Cardiological Department of the Petz Aladár Hospital Győr, and the Cardiological and Internal Department of the Markusovszky Hospital Szombathely have close professional cooperation with the Cardiac Rehabilitation Departments of Elisabeth Hospital Sopron in favour of patients who are capable and willing to take part in rehabilitation.

The target and the method: From the 1th of January 2014 until the 31th of December 2016 monitoring the data of the three year, and comparing the national data with the data from Győr-Moson-Sopron County and Vas County.

Results: Comparing to the national average, significantly more patients took part in rehabilitation program in these two counties. Several complications – arrhythmia, heart failure and new angina pectoris – and co-illnesses diabetes are explored during rehabilitation.

Conclusion: The information of the nature of sicknesses is helping the patient´s devotion to the therapy, the frequency of rehospitalisation is lower, the death rate decreased. The multiprofessional institutional – later ambulant – rehabilitation program with standard professional guidelines is reasonable for every capable patient. The life-quality of patients will increase and connecting to that, the expenses of health care will decrease.
