Never before has the need for digital cardiovascular care been more pressing, as well as more promising. Hence, with this call for papers, BMC Cardiovascular Disorders acknowledges that new approaches are fundamental to the advancement of modern cardiology. We encourage patients, researchers, academics, clinicians and policy makers to appreciate that progress in digital health and innovation has a broad scope.
This call is broad and not limited to the following topics:
- Digital technology in diagnostic aid
- Imaging post-processing software
- Patient follow-up using digital health
- Protocols on digital health projects
- Patient-related data
- AI in cardiovascular sciences
- Innovation in cardiovascular health
- New digital solutions in clinical workflows
- Robotic interventions
- Technology and assisted decision-making
- Using a mobile solution to citizens and/or health care professionals
- Remote educational activities
- Review of digital health/new technology entities
- Medical devices and cybersecurity
- Impact of wearable technology
We welcome the submission of research papers (including methods), study protocols, technical advancements, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. However, we do not accept case reports.
