Sorin Group, a global medical device company, and Orange Business Services, a global communications services integrator, on Wednesday launched SMARTVIEW, a remote monitoring solution for patients with implanted cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices in several countries in Europe.
Using the SMARTVIEW remote monitoring service, healthcare providers can now access valuable cardiac data and alert messages from Sorin’s (Milan, Italy) implantable PARADYMTM RF devices, while the patient is at home.
Combined with remote data transmission, the proprietary features embedded in Sorin’s CRM devices offer advanced diagnostic capabilities and early detection of cardiac disease progression, says Sorin. For patients, the SMARTVIEW remote monitoring service can reduce time spent travelling to their clinic for routine device checks.
“With remote monitoring, I can efficiently review clinical and device data – usually collected during in-office follow-up – while patients stay at home,” said Philippe Mabo, MD, PhD, University Hospital of Rennes, France. .
The simple installation of the SMARTVIEW remote monitoring system at the patient’s home is assisted by a helpdesk powered by Orange Business Services (Paris) and Sorin.
SMARTVIEW uses a global, scalable e-health platform from Orange Business Services, backed by the Orange network. Healthcare providers can access important clinical insights through a secure 24/7 Web application that provides a user-friendly interface with patient data hosted in Orange’s secure data centers.
