Stay in touch with your patients anywhere in the world.
Home Monitoring is an internet-based, automatic remote monitoring system that uses the cellular phone network to enable physicians to remotely monitor their patients' clinical status and their device status no matter where they happen to be.
The way it works is simple. The implanted device transmits diagnostic, therapeutic, and technical data automatically and silently to a small external patient communicator, the CardioMessenger®, via an integrated antenna – all without the slightest patient interaction.
The external patient device or CardioMessenger® then quickly and efficiently forwards the data automatically to the BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® Service Center via cellular networks.*
The Home Monitoring Service Center then analyzes the data and compiles a continuously updated and consolidated patient status summary or CardioReport. In case of clinically relevant status changes of the patient‘s condition, the Home Monitoring Service Center generates an immediate event notification, and, depending on the physician’s selection, an additional event alert via email, SMS, or fax is sent to the physicians, letting them know the status of their patients' condition.
Today, BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring reaches more than 160 countries worldwide, helping to optimize patient care management in more than 3500 clinics around the globe.
*In the US and Japan, a landline version of the communicator is also available.

CardioMessenger® coverage can vary according to the GPRS network coverage.
