  • A large segment of the population currently uses wearable devices such as, smartwatches, smart rings, and remote monitors of ECG and oximetry, to track health and illnesses.
  • To help facilitate innovation in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease (CVD) there is a need to ensure data interoperability among ambulatory medical devices that may enable the integration of information from sensors, devices, and software applications (apps).
  • The goal of this scientific statement is to address the best practices, gaps, and challenges related to the need for data interoperability in this area, with focus on (1) data integration and the scope of measures, (2) application of these data into clinical approaches/strategies, and (3) regulatory/ethical/legal issues.
