Heart disease affects much of the world’s population, yet many people have no idea that they could have something wrong with them. An opportunity therefore exists for targeted screening for conditions such as cardiovascular disease, heart rhythm changes, valvular heart disease, structural abnormalities, and more subtle, rarer inherited heart conditions.

Our article focusses on how the emerging field of digital health technology can aid screening for heart disease and explore its usefulness in disease specific and population specific groups.
