Arvind Shinde, MD, MBA, MPH, assistant clinical professor at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, discusses the potential benefits of monitoring patients with fitness trackers.

Fitness trackers log information such as activity, heart rate and sleep, which can give care providers a better idea of how the patient is doing and if he or she is in distress.
