Rehabilitation of patients with cardiovascular disease can reduce mortality and reduce the number of risk factors associated with the severity of the disease and the development of complications. Rehabilitation programmes are increasingly using information technologies to communicate to patients the importance of rehabilitation and a healthy lifestyle to prevent recurrence of the disease and complications; this concept is called e-education. In the presented review, the literature data are analyzed and modern views on the possibilities of e-education in the organization and rehabilitation are presented.
