UMMS CARDIAC A-FIB
MOBILE APP | HEALTHCARE | HIPAA COMPLIANT
Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) is an irregular heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating that increases the risk of stroke and heart disease. Patients with a-fib often experience dizziness, weakness, and fatigue. They may undergo treatments that involve medication and lifestyle changes, and sometimes cardioversion, ablation, pacemakers, or surgery.
University of Michigan Medical School’s College of Pharmacy wanted to create an app that helps a-fib patients track their symptoms on a daily basis, and indicate when they experience the most severe symptoms. This information is shared with doctors, allowing them to monitor patients’ health in a non-hospital setting, and collecting valuable data for a better understanding of a-fib.

Logic developed the Cardiac Atrial Fibrillation (CAF) app that prompts the user to input information three times a day and when their symptoms are most severe. The information is then transferred to the University of Michigan for analysis and research. The app is currently in use now at the University of Michigan Medical School.
