Most sectors of the economy have undergone some form of digital transformation, yielding efficiency and value. Healthcare, while in dire need of more efficiency and value, has been slow to embrace – much less achieve – digital transformation. There have been massive investments in digital health technologies over the last 5-10 years, but little of this has translated into changes in the way CV care is delivered.

This talk delves into:
• The current landscape of digital health in relation to CV care
• The need for digital transformation and reasons why this has not (yet) happened
• A roadmap for digital transformation – emphasizing virtual care, remote monitoring, and AI-driven care
• Current efforts by the American College of Cardiology to lead the digital transformation of CV care
