Abstract
BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular patients are at increased risk of acquiring coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection while their visit to healthcare facilities. There is a need for alternative tools for optimal monitoring and management of cardiovascular patients in the present pandemic situation. Digital health care may prove to be a new revolutionary tool to protect cardiovascular patients from coronavirus disease by avoiding routine visits to health care facilities that are already overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients.
METHODS: To evaluate the role of digital health care in the present era of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reviewed the published literature on digital health services providing cardiovascular care.
RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Digital health including telemedicine services, robotic telemedicine carts, use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, use of digital gadgets like smartwatches and web-based applications may be a safe alternative for the management of cardiovascular patients in the present pandemic situation.
