Afib CAUSE Study
A Pilot Study to Assess Correlations between Atrial Fibrillation and Cardiomyopathy Phenotypes and Variants of Uncertain SignificancE in Cardiac-Related Genes
The goal of this study is to combine health and activity data from mobile devices with clinical genetic testing results to improve the understanding of how genetic changes contribute to atrial fibrillation and other cardiovascular conditions.
By participating in the study, you will answer questions about your history of cardiovascular disease and risk factors, and will allow the Invitae Discover app to collect health and activity data from your phone or wearable device. If you choose, you can also share medical record data from your iOS device.
The app will NOT access your personal contacts, other applications, personal photos, text messages, or emails.
At times during the study, the app may prompt you to complete additional survey questions. You may also be contacted in the future about additional research opportunities.
