ENABLE DISTANCING DURING IN-CLINIC FOLLOW UP WITH CARELINK EXPRESS™ MOBILE

CareLink™ Express Mobile decouples a patient device interrogation from the data interpretation, moving data quickly and offering you flexibility without the need for a device clinician to be on-site.

1. Device interrogation

Patients can be interrogated from any location and at safe distance, reducing unnecessary patient movement and minimising exposure for both patients and your staff.

HOW IT WORKS

FocusOn Graph of how it works

 

The FocusOn™ team triages all transmitted data from all Medtronic cardiac devices according to hospital customisations and promptly notifies Clinical Teams about clinically actionable information, using communications prioritised by color-coding and proactive phone calls for urgent events.

FocusOn on brand messaging

I’ve worked with the FocusOn™ monitoring and triaging service for more than 3 years now, and the quality of the cardiac data analysis is beyond question.
