Delivering healthcare at home to AF patients during the COVID-19 pandemic

How? The physician prescribes the use of the medically certified FibriCheck app on smartphone to measure the patient’s heart rhythm and heart rate for 7 days before a scheduled teleconsultation. The FibriCheck data is used by the physician to start/adapt treatment.

For which hospitals? Cardiology practices with outpatient clinics that required an alternative for cancelled/delayed care-paths

For which patients? All patients who are diagnosed with AF or suspicion of AF following referral. (more info:

How does TeleCheck-AF work?


Step 1:

The hospital contacts patients with AF who have an appointment at the hospital/AF Clinic.

Heart Rhythm Measurement

Step 2:

The patient receives instructions how and when to use FibriCheck app. The patient performs heart rhythm measurements at home.


Step 3:

The physician consults online and in real-time patient measurement reports in a user-friendly dashboard.


Step 4:

The physician organises a tele-consultation with the patient and determines the treatment.
