This article is part of a For-Discussion-Section of Methods of Information in Medicine about the paper "Computational Electrocardiography: Revisiting Holter ECG Monitoring" written by Thomas M. Deserno and Nikolaus Marx. It is introduced by an editorial. This article contains the combined commentaries invited to independently comment on the paper of Deserno and Marx. In subsequent issues the discussion can continue through letters to the editor.

TLDR
This For-Discussion-Section consists of their paper presenting current issues to be explored in terms of CECG followed by comments addressed by seven distinguished researchers in the field of medical informatics, biomedical or health care engineering which vary from affirmative ones showing even additional supporting evidences to ones including constructive criticism.
Some Thought-provoking and Critical Proposals to Encourage Scientific Debate on the Nature of Good Research in Medical Informatics
TLDR
The field of BMHI is on the one hand maturing as an academic community and intellectual endeavour; on the other hand vendor-supplied solutions may be too readily and uncritically accepted in health care practice.
Research Strategies for Biomedical and Health Informatics.
TLDR
There is a high chance that BMHI will continue to flourish as an important discipline; its innovative interventions might then reach the original objectives of advancing science and improving health care outcomes.
Research Strategies for Biomedical and Health Informatics
TLDR
The field of BMHI is on the one hand maturing as an academic community and intellectual endeavour and on the other hand vendor-supplied solutions may be too readily and uncritically accepted in health care practice.

Fundamentals of electrocardiography interpretation.
TLDR
The purpose of this continuing education article is to review basic principals of ECG monitoring and interpretation.
Computational Electrocardiography: Revisiting Holter ECG Monitoring.
TLDR
The Holter ECG from recording to understanding is revisited, and parallels between CECG and computational biology are drawn, in particular with respect to computed tomography, computed radiology, and computed photography.
Assessment of the performance of electrocardiographic computer programs with the use of a reference data base.
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that to allow an exchange of results and diagnostic criteria between different ECG computer programs, definitions, minimum wave requirements, and measurement procedures urgently need to be standardized.
The diagnostic performance of computer programs for the interpretation of electrocardiograms.
TLDR
A large international study to compare the performance of nine electrocardiographic computer programs with that of eight cardiologists in interpreting ECGs in 1220 clinically validated cases of various cardiac disorders shows that some but not all computer programs for the interpretation of ECGs perform almost as well as cardi Physicians.

Single-Beat Noninvasive Imaging of Ventricular Endocardial and Epicardial Activation in Patients Undergoing CRT
TLDR
Endocardial and epicardial ventricular activation can be visualized noninvasively by NICE to help identify responders to CRT and to further improve response toCRT by facilitating a patient-specific lead placement and device programming.
Telemonitoring of outpatients with heart failure: a search for the holy grail?
TLDR
Remote, home, or telemonitoring using a number of (relatively simple) noninvasive variables such as heart rate, blood pressure, and body weight was also examined in anumber of studies, and the same meta-analysis showed that this method reduced both hospitalizations and mortality.

TLDR
Estimates of expected health outcomes for larger societies are included, where data exist, and the level of evidence and the strength of recommendation of particular treatment options are weighed and graded according to pre-defined scales.
