'Catch Me'- Atrial Fibrillation App
Investigators at the University of Birmingham help develop smartphone apps for patients with atrial fibrillation.
Researchers at the University of Birmingham have helped develop innovative smartphone apps for patients with Atrial Fibrillation.
Working in the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, Professor Paulus Kirchhof, Dr. Larissa Fabritz and Dr Dipak Kotecha are leading members of the European consortium “CATCH ME” and the guideline committee of the European Society of Cardiology.
Together with these partners, they have funded and developed mobile apps to facilitate integrated and personalised care and research for patients with Atrial Fibrillation.
The 'AF Manager' app is a state-of-the-art tool for healthcare professionals which uses integrated patient data to suggest treatment options from the ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines on Atrial Fibrillation 2016.
The 'My AF app' is an educational resource and tool for people with Atrial Fibrillation that records symptoms and quality of life data, which can be shared with the healthcare team.
Since their launch in 2017, the specialised apps have frequently been downloaded by health professionals and patients with Atrial Fibrillation across Europe.
