AFib 2gether™: A Patient Friendly Shared Decision Making Tool

 

AFib 2gether™, a mobile app developed by Pfizer, may help improve shared decision-making discussions between patients with AFib, their caregivers, and their provider, on the risk of stroke due to AFib. The app includes:

- A brief Stroke Risk Questionnaire that patients can send to their provider, outlining their individual risk factors for stroke
- Education on AFib with videos, facts, and links to trusted advocacy sites
- An FAQ tool with suggested questions to ask their provider

AFib 2gether™ aims to empower patients with AFib to prepare for their provider visit. The app is available free in the Apple App Store or on Google Play.

Atrial Fibrillation Risk Assessment

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is the most common abnormal heart rhythm. In a normal heart, the four chambers of the heart beat in a steady, rhythmic pattern. With AFib, the atria (upper chambers of the heart) fibrillate (quiver or twitch quickly) and create an irregular rhythm.
