Heart-Monitoring with Your Smartphone

Patients will soon be able to keep track of and monitor inside their own hearts with the help of an implanted sensor and a smartphone. A new app called PAM+ (Patient Advisory Module) being developed by researchers at the University of Southern California and St. Jude Medical will help patients better manage their heart health. The app works with a smartphone or other device that is placed over the patient’s heart in order to charge the implanted sensor and gather heart information. The data is then sent to St. Jude for analysis and patients will able to see charts and graphs of their progress over time.
