It helps hospitals:
Providing a 15-minute device check-up outside the hospital to lower contamination risk and increase capacity
IHS has developed a drive-through solution to provide pacemaker and internal cardiac device (ICD) check-ups while reducing the number of in-hospital visits and relieving the pressure on space and resources.
Case Study: St Antonius Heart Centre
Learn how IHS supported one of the leading hospitals in the Netherlands in providing pacemaker/ICD check-ups while lowering the risk of contamination, reducing the number of in-hospital visits by 90%, and eliminating patient backlog inherited from the 1st COVID-19 wave – seeing a total of nearly 300 patients outside the hospital over a two-week period.
Helping providers ensure they have adequate hospital capacity when needed and flexibility to quickly adapt to the ever-changing situation.
Medtronic IHS is currently offering the Capacity Centre, a comprehensive solution that helps providers become more agile and efficiently adapt to patients changing flow.

Giving cardiology patients immediate access to all diagnostic procedures in a single visit. Our comprehensive and fully managed cardiology diagnostic centre provides patients with a one-stop diagnostic experience that reduces time to first appointment, shortens diagnostic wait times, and lowers diagnostic costs for hospitals.
This one-stop concept is especially valuable during COVID-19 as it helps alleviate patient fear about interacting with the healthcare system, while reducing instances of deferred care, and assisting hospitals in refilling their patient pipeline.

The impact of COVID-19 on AF treatment: Challenges and potential solutions.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, elective procedures such as AF ablation were cancelled or postponed. As a consequence, many hospitals experienced a huge backlog of AF procedures. Explore concepts and practices that might help you to reduce your AF patient waiting list in the COVID era.
As with many other hospitals, the St. Joseph's-hospital in Wiesbaden, Germany experienced a considerable backlog of AF procedures. To overcome this backlog and reduce the waiting list for AF procedures, Prof. Ehrlich and his team decided to dedicate a row of cryo days early in June 2020. For these days, they increased the case capacity from the usual 6 up to 10 and scheduled 27 patients within three days.
