Heart Rate Monitoring: The Future of Personalized and Preventative Medicine

cardiogram Heart Health

The world as we know it today is rapidly shifting and changing. As technology continues to expand, we seem to expand with it. One area where this is the case (and the area we happen to be most interested in) is the intersection between technology and health. 

With the ability smartwatches have to collect and share vast amounts of data in real time, and Cardiogram’s ability to then convert that data into meaningful insights, we’re standing at a pivotal point in medical history. Not only can we now track our heart rates and glean key info into what our hearts are communicating, but in doing so, we’re also ushering in the future of preventative and personalized medicine.  

Afterall, your heartbeat holds a larger blueprint of your overall state of wellness than you may think. It isn't just a rhythmic thumping in your chest but a wealth of information waiting to be understood. And that’s where we come in. We love understanding and interpreting its language to help you create a healthier present and future. 

The Value of Heart Rate Monitoring 

Heart rate monitoring has been a long-standing practice in the medical field. Traditionally, the practice provides vital info regarding heart function, indicating potential cardiovascular diseases or abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Now, thanks to modern technology like wearable devices and apps like Cardiogram, this practice has been refined and optimized to new levels. 

Easily accessible and affordable smartwatches now have the ability to accurately collect massive amounts of data, and Cardiogram can simultaneously monitor and track those heart rate points in real-time. With this combination, we then provide immediate, regular data on your heart health that previously required a visit to a clinic or hospital. Pretty powerful stuff.

The Intersection of Technology and Preventive Medicine  

When it comes to preventive medicine, there’s a huge emphasis on anticipation, prevention, and early detection of disease. The beauty of tracking your heart rate? It takes those same principles and makes them accessible and actionable to everyone. 

By tracking your heart rates continuously with your Cardiogram app, you’re able to understand your normal baseline and become aware of any irregularities that may hint at underlying health concerns.  

On top of that, with your heart rate data, we can offer insights into how your heart rate responds to specific events and stimuli like stress, exercise, caffeine, or sleep so you can make healthier lifestyle choices through regular tagging. By Creating Tags for these sort of events, you have the opportunity to view your Tag Insights and quickly connect the dots between external factors and how your heart responds. This is helpful by allowing you to then create a life that’s more conducive for your well-being and your heart’s health. 

The Power of Data in Health Management 

For a long time, health professionals have had to do their best to create personalized health plans without adequate information. Even if they’d had access to the massive amounts of data smartwatches collect today, there was no way for humans to quickly and efficiently translate that data into anything valuable. Thankfully, times have changed. With Cardiogram’s scientifically-validated and peer-reviewed algorithm, doctors are at a serious advantage. 

Over time, the data from your smartwatches can be used to create a holistic picture of your individual health. Whereas before, you doctor was only able to get a picture of your health based on the day of a visit, you can now easily share your heart rate data with your doctor so they have instant access to your health data from elongated periods of time.  

These detailed reports give your medical professionals a much more accurate look into your wellbeing; with such a broader spectrum of health information at their disposal, they’re able to assess risk factors and create more effective, personalized treatment plans with less effort and greater accuracy. This approach is revolutionary compared to the standard “one-size-fits-all” model we’ve had to use up until this point. 

Wearables and Heart Health: More Than Just Numbers 

Beyond the ability to aid us in clinical health management, being able to interpret heart rate data also plays a critical role in enhancing your own health awareness and autonomy. The insights you receive in your Cardiogram app acts as constant reminder of your health status and pushes you to take proactive steps towards better health. 

This can be seen as you keep track of your Health Score and Risk Factors (found in the Report section of your app) where you can keep stock of your risk of conditions like hypertension, sleep apnea, and diabetes, and take positive action to improve those levels. 

If you’re not sure of which action step to take first, you also have SmartMetrics (at the top of your Metrics section) which you can think of as your guide. This feature always provides the most important insights and suggestions based on your real-time trends. 


Creating a Heart-Healthy Future 

With easy access to any basic smartwatch and your Cardiogram app, you and your health are at a greater advantage than ever before. Of course, while we provide all of the insights and information you need to create a healthier heart and future, it’s up to you to use that info to then take the necessary actions steps.
