This is your monthly digest of three noteworthy news stories in digital health from the past month - what they mean for the industry, and why you should know about them. You also have an opportunity to reach out to me if you wish to connect with our friends from the industry who know the ins and outs so you can quite literally ‘get behind the headlines’. 


1: AliveCor has dropped Kardiaband Apple Watch Accessory

Snapshot of the story:

The KardiaBand by AliveCor was an FDA approved ECG/EKG wristband designed for use with earlier versions of the Apple Watch, augmenting the watch's health offerings before Apple Watch 4 launched with its own ECG. AliveCor have now withdrawn their Kardiaband from the market, and this will no longer be available with the Apple watch.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
