Heart For Heart Initiative Launched To Improve Smartphone Performance of Arrhythmia Detection

Happitech, Arrhythmia Alliance and Bug Labs will announce the launch of the Heart for Heart e-health initiative.

This will speed up the development and accuracy of the technology and create insights into new health correlations.”
