CATCH ME Patient App for Atrial Fibrillation

Two healthcare apps were developed by the CATCH ME consortium to improve treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF).

The apps inform about AF and its therapy, support the healthcare professional-patient relationship and thus improve treatment of AF patients.


The "MyAF" app was developed for patients with AF.

What does "MyAF" do?

> Provides an educational resource for patients with AF, including information about the condition, stroke risk, common treatments and lifestyle improvements

> Records symptoms and quality of life over time

> Allows patients to record their individual characteristics and share this information with a nominated healthcare professional


Why do health care providers recommend "MyAF"?

> Patient education can improve self-care, long-term outcomes and adherence to therapy

> The educational material in the patient app was written by AF patients and the ESC AF Guidelines Task Force, supported by the British Heart Foundation


The apps are available for download free of charge from the Google Play Store and iOS App Store:
