Will watch apps that record heart rhythm benefit patients? Let us know your opinion
The latest Apple Watch comes equipped with an FDA-cleared app that enables users to record their heart rhythm, which some see as a major advancement to healthcare. Heralded by the American Heart Association, the app could pick up abnormal heart rhythms in undiagnosed individuals and gives doctors the ability to monitor patients remotely. However, the app could also result in false negatives and false positives, which each come with their own set of concerns.
