Self-driving cars were "popping wheelies" on the Las Vegas strip and low-flying drones were overhead. But the real buzz of the massive 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last month was inside – where the focus was advances in the digital health space.

ACC leaders Dipti Itchhaporia, MD, FACC, and Thomas Maddox, MD, MSc, FACC, were among the featured panelists, while ACC's Chief Innovation Officer and Chief Science and Quality Officer John S. Rumsfeld, MD, PhD, FACC, introduced the conference track with a call to action. Read more about the conference.
