Dive Brief:

  • A global consortium of heart rhythm professional bodies has voiced “clear concerns” with the accuracy of wearables used to detect cardiac arrhythmia.
  • The Heart Rhythm Society and its international peers in a consensus statement said false positives associated with the use of wearables to detect arrhythmias can cause unwarranted concerns and screening.
  • Despite those concerns, the professional bodies said the overall evidence favors the use of wearables, leading them to conclude the data may contribute to the detection of disease “when integrated into the clinical context and physician judgement.”
