Photoplethysmography (PPG) is being used to detect biologic parameters becuase it provides a non-invasive and inexpensive tool when coupled to a smartphone. In particular, there has been interest in using PPG for the detection of arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, measurement of ambulatory blood pressure, and even identification of patients with sleep apnea. In this session, we will explore whether PPG is sufficient for detection and monitoring of these conditions.

The day-to-day practice of Cardiology has long involved use of the stethoscope, electrocardiogram and echocardiogram for assessment of patients. However, AI is completely transforming the value proposition of these "old tools", which are rapidly being transformed into disease prediction and disease identification tools. This panel will discuss the latest iterations in these "old-time" tools.

There has been a significant increase in the volume of data produced by patients with the litany of wearables on the market. The ability to share data between patients and providers has become easier with the advent of patient portals associated with electronic medical records. But the core question of data ownership remains—who owns these data? Data ownership is complex and important for patient empowerment. But what does the law say? Can data be co-owned by the appropriate entities involved in a patient’s care? What are the legal nuances of data ownership? And are the cybersecurity measures in place sufficient in the current state? In this session, we will start to address some of these concepts.
