That’s a great point. 10% of strokes are associated with undiagnosed atrial fibrillation, so we really want to detect a-fib that would otherwise be undiagnosed.

We’re planning to run an additional validation where we send AliveCor devices to users our algorithm has flagged for a-fib, but who have self-reported no a-fib. This will measure our ability to detect the condition in undiagnosed patients.
