During the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, traditional face-to-face consultations in atrial fibrillation (AF) outpatient clinics were rapidly transferred into teleconsultations, which were initially conducted without any information on heart rhythm or heart rate of the patients. To guarantee the continuity of comprehensive AF management through teleconsultation during COVID-19, we developed a mobile health (mHealth) intervention at the Maastricht Medical University Centre to support AF teleconsultations: TeleCheck-AF.
