'AFib Educator' app and widget offers patient dialogue tool for complex cardiovascular disease
Date:3/22/2010

s of the human heart, fluoroscopy (x-ray) animations, and electrocardiogram (EKG) demos, the AFib Educator helps healthcare professionals clarify the risks associated with AFib, and shows patients specifically how it impacts the heart's performance.

The application also provides healthcare professionals with other resources to share with patients, including facts about the signs, symptoms, prevalence and risks of AFib; links to resources where patients can learn more about AFib; and an "e-mail a friend" feature, which enables healthcare professionals to e-mail background information directly to patients. Patients and caregivers can then share the information to others with or at risk for AFib.

"Having been diagnosed with AFib, I know how the experience can be confusing and overwhelming for a new patient," said Mellanie True Hills, founder of StopAfib.org. "An educated patient is an empowered patient, and the AFib Educator is exactly the kind of patient-friendly, visual tool that can make this complex condition less frightening."

Recent research indicates that healthcare professionals as well as medical students are increasingly looking towards smartphone technology for their professional needs. Manhattan Research reports that 54 percent of all physicians own a PDA or a smartphone. Among them, 83 percent use the devices for professional purposes, and 65 percent state that they believe that the devices are essential to their practices. Furthermore, 73 percent of physicians who own a PDA or smartphone expressed a desire for more applications tailored for their specialty. Of note, cardiologists were among the group of specialties most likely to express this thought.
