Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Study

Johns Hopkins MiCORE Study (Myocardial infarction, COmbined device, Recovery Enhancement)

IRB Number: IRB00099938
Principal Investigator: Martin, Seth

Study Description:

The Johns Hopkins MiCORE Study (Myocardial infarction, COmbined device, Recovery Enhancement) investigates how a mobile app and smart watch could be used to help patients recover from a heart attack more safely and effectively. We will examine what happens when patients are given an app with necessary information and resources early in the heart attack recovery process. The study will determine if it is feasible to help patients navigate the hospital discharge process using our digital health solution to educate themselves about their heart disease, new medications, follow-up, and how recovery is going after a heart attack. Data acquired will be analyzed to help make the app easier to use and more helpful for patients recovering from a heart attack in the future.

Eligibility Criteria:

-Patient admitted for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) or their family/friend

-18 years of age or older

-English speaking

-No physical or sensory impairment that limits use of technology
