Transparent Sharing of Digital Health Data: A Call to Action
Published May 8, 2019
Heart rhythm care professionals and patients routinely depend upon digital health data obtained by cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CEIDs), medical-grade ambulatory cardiac monitors, and most recently, consumer personal biometric monitoring devices. However, the data typically resides either exclusively with the healthcare team or, in the case of consumer devices, with the patient.
If all stakeholders provide effective leadership and engage proactively and collaboratively with each other, we will take the small but significant first steps toward advancing the Heart Rhythm Society vision to end death and suffering due to heart rhythm disorders.
