The MiAfib application was designed to allow patients to track symptoms of atrial fibrillation in real-time using a smartphone. Currently, only participants in our research studies will be able to use MiAfib, and the data collected will not be made available to anybody outside the study team. The study team will do initial setup of the application for all participants. The application captures the users responses to each question, and the results are securely transferred back to University of Michigan Medical School (UMMS) where they can be used for reporting and research.
Participating in our study and using the MiAfib app will help improve our understanding of how people with atrial fibrillation experience symptoms, and may one day lead to better strategies to help treat the symptoms of atrial fibrillation.
