Apple helps doctors study heart health with new Apple Watch app

  • The Alive Cor Kardia Band

"We've been looking at this for a couple of years, and we think Apple Watch can help", said Apple COO Jeff Williams, of AFib, at the keynote. And the benefits of joining the study may offer you some incredibly valuable insight into your heart health.

STANFORD MEDICINE researchers are working with Apple on a research study to determine whether the Apple Watch's heart-rate sensor can identify irregular heart rhythms associated with a condition known as atrial fibrillation.

Along with the KardiaBand, an mHealth-enabled watch band that records a patient's EKG in 30 seconds, AliveCor is launching SmartRhythm, a feature within the company's Kardia mobile app that allows Apple Watch users to synch heart rate and activity sensors in the watch to track heart rate and activity.

What's more, Apple is partnering with Stanford Medicine on the research, and if an irregular heart rhythm is identified through your data, you'll receive a free consultation with a study doctor and an electrocardiogram patch for extra monitoring.

EKG-Reading Kardia Band Is First Apple Watch Accessory To Get FDA Clearance

Atrial fibrillation is one of the highest rates of arrhythmias occurring in the general populace with a number of medical management strategies.

The app Apple Heart Study is up on the App Store and available for download right now (link below).

Though the Watch can't diagnose any conditions just yet, it is perfectly positioned to detect an irregular heart beat and alert those with a serious condition who may want to check it out further with a medical professional.

The Apple Watch is becoming a popular mHealth wearable for people with cardiac conditions.

At least 33 million units of the Watch have been sold, according to Asymco analyst Horace Deidu - Apple itself does not officially release sales figures, nor information on who is buying the Watch. If an irregular heart rhythm is observed, the app will notify you.

With this new app, your Apple Watch might save your life.

Now you need to submit a request to participate in the study.

Among those using or favoring the Apple Watch in remote monitoring programs are New Orleans-based Ochsner Health, Johns Hopkins University (which is using the smartwatch in a research study on triggers for epileptic seizures), Aetna and Humana. Lastly, it could be an interesting talking point for pharmacists that are conducting MTM services as this could be a tool to collect data from. By enrolling using devices, Apple has said, it makes it easier for scientists to both find and monitor study participants. In September Williams said that Apple worked closely with the FDA in developing the study.
