As the Covid-19 virus wreaks havoc with the healthcare system, the test-driven world of
cardiovascular medicine is quickly shifting from traditional hands-on care to remote hands-off
telemedicine. The practice of cardiology, electrophysiology and specifically cardiac rhythm
management has been altered—virtual consultation and home monitoring have taken the centern stage, thereby minimizing the risks of exposure to Covid-19. The pandemic will certainly affect delivery of patient care in the days to come.


In this edition of Cardiology2.0, some of the leading experts in the world of electrophysiology from across the U.S discuss the emergence of new wave of telecardiology. They talk about managing chronic care patients, patients with rhythm disorders, monitoring stroke and post-surgery patients during the pandemic and beyond.


On the cover we are featuring a game-changing, patented Swedish innovation for the American market. Philip Siberg and his team at Coala Life are reimagining healthcare—putting transformative technologies into mainstream practice. Earlier this year, Coala Life was recognized by Cardiology2.0 as one of the top 30 companies in the Cardiac Monitoring space. We are happy to bring to you the story of how Coala is transforming the field of cardiac diagnostics.


We invite you to share with us the telecardiology/ telehealth initiatives at your institution.


Happy reading!
