Over the past 18 months, COVID-19 has strained our health services, highlighting the need to find alternative ways to connect people to heart health. While digital tools such as telehealth have clear benefits, there is a risk that this rapid transformation in healthcare could exacerbate the existing inequity in access to healthcare. The panel will discuss the greatest opportunities and challenges for progress against cardiovascular disease (CVD) in a more connected world.
