For Better Hearts



Digital technologies in the cardiovascular pathway 


In our first podcast, Birgit Beger, CEO of the European Heart Network, discusses the red-hot topic of digital health technologies – with a focus on cardiovascular disease – with Donna Fitzsimons, Head of the School of Nursing & Midwifery at Queen’s University Belfast, and Thomas Beer, voluntary representative of the German Heart Foundation. Patient-doctor shared decision-making, wearable devices, artificial intelligence, a framework to make these technologies interoperable and useful for accessing personal medical data, trust, accountability, and the promise and potential perils of the European Health Data Space are some of the topics of this jam-packed 30-minute episode.
