Provide closer care to your patients wherever they are

why remote monitoring

In today’s increasingly complex environment, device clinics are finding ways to improve patient outcomes, while efficiently managing resources.


CareLink™ remote monitoring helps clinics overcome these challenges by moving data instead of patients and enabling early notifications of important events. 

remote monitoring

how it works

carelink process without text

1. Patient's mobile app or a bedside monitor automatically and securely sends data from the patient's device to the CareLink platform.

2. Clinicians can access patient data using CareLinkTM clinician website.

The benefits

Blue Clock Icon

Remote monitoring means that you are not in the dark between in-clinic checks.

Early CareAlert™ notifications of clinically important events help you react quicker to improve patient outcomes.
