Easy access to Fitbit heart data to Google Health partners

Today’s technology, like Fitbit and Pixel devices, can detect irregular heart rhythms and send alerts via Irregular Rhythm Notifications (IRN). Nearly 10 million users have opted into IRN. Now, with user consent, healthcare providers can access Afib data securely through the Fitbit Web API.

This innovation enables proactive care:

  • Hospitals can integrate this data for timely diagnoses.
  • Health plans can develop programs for early Afib detection and stroke prevention.
  • Researchers can use this data for studies on health outcomes.

Users can manage their heart health better, and providers can enhance care programs. Look out for Fitbit app notifications to share your data if you use these IRN endpoints.
