BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring®
Save Time. Improve Outcomes.
Easy for Patients
Efficient for Clinicians
Actionable for Better Outcomes
More Than 60% Reduction of All-Cause Mortality for HF Patients
Improve clinical outcome and patient status
With BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring physicians are alerted about worsening patient status early on, giving them time to intervene proactively. The result is a clinically proven >60% reduction in all-cause mortality for patients with ICD and CRT-D devices.³
81% Reduction of Non-Actionable Clinic Visits
Save time on standard patient care
BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring automatically transmits and verifies data and will alert you of gaps, so you can react quickly.5 Benefit from smoother workflows, more personalized decisions, and more time for the patients who need you most.
Key Product Features
BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring®-Save Time. Improve Outcomes.
Taking care of cardiac device patients can be challenging. BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring is designed to make this task easier and save time for everyone involved.
BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® offers:
- Automatic daily data transmission, including ECG recordings, for well-informed decision-making and improved patient outcomes²
- Scheduled follow-up data transmission including ECG recordings
- QuickCheck enables data transmission on demand for instant patient evaluation
BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring is designed to save you time. Automatic pairing and reliable data transmission can significantly reduce time spent managing technological hurdles and ensuring patient compliance.
Automatic alert notification after 3 days* of no transmission ensures patient compliance to remote monitoring. (*user selectable)
- Traffic light system for alert prioritization
- Settings can be fully customized and personalized remotely with ease
- Changes are effective immediately
- Templates of typical alert settings can be stored and re-used
The IN-TIME approach Home Monitoring settings as recommended by the ESC Guidelines can be programmed in one single step
QuickView and HF monitor compile all relevant data in a simple display – allowing you to see trends in data and make decisions based on the complete picture
Automatic daily wireless data transmission from day one – with less patient interaction
- Quick and easy Plug-and-go setup and less patient interaction:
- For clinicians: automatic pairing at implantation
- For patients: automatic pairing at home without their interaction
- 98% transmission success due to high patient compliance6
Today's busiest clinics demand a faster, easier way to handle, store and process interrogated patient and device data. BIOTRONIK DataSync® exports data from BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® and BIOTRONIK Renamic programmers directly into a hospital's patient management system. Datasysnc provides secure storage of patient data and paperless follow-up management.
Bringing symptom and rhythm recording together in one platform
- Easy-to-use Symptom Diary to record symptoms by the patient.
- Automatic upload of recorded symptoms in Home Monitoring Service Center (HMSC) for evaluation.
Designed to Mitigate Clinic Call Burden
- Feedback by the app to your patients about data transmission success, battery and device status answers common questions patients may have.
- Guided troubleshooting empowers patients to solve simple transmission issues.
- With the Patient App, clinics can ask patients to call back- avoiding multiple contact attempts by phone.
Main Functions at a Glance
The Patient App is designed for patients who have a BIOTRONIK cardiac device and are using BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring.
1. Symptom Diary to record and transmit symptom data to HMSC.
2. Digital Patient ID with device and hospital information.
3. Message function for a hospital contact request.
4. Home Monitoring data transmission feedback.
5. Daily status of device and battery.
6. Heart rhythm information measured by the device.
7. Education and help functions.
Symptom Data Added to HMSC
Having symptom data in your HMSC, you can evaluate these symptoms in relation to the recorded events. This may result in making earlier fact-based therapy decisions.
Compatible Cardiac Devices
The following devices are compatible with the BIOTRONIK Patient App:
- Edora, Eluna, Enitra, Enticos, Epyra, Etrinsa, Evity
- Acticor, Rivacor
- Ilivia, Ilivia Neo, Inlexa, Intica, Intica Neo, Inventra, Iperia, Itrevia
- BIOMONITOR III, BIOMONITOR IIIm
Patients who have BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring can take full advantage of the functionality of the app.
You Are In Control
n the HMSC, you can manage several functions of the Patient App for optimal use.
- You can send out a callback notification to your patient.
- You can manage the access each individual patient has to the Home Monitoring functions of the Patient App.
- You can also review whether your patient is registered for the Patient App, as well as the last Patient App transmission.
Certain functions of the Patient App are only accessible when the implanted device communicates with the BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring. Therefore, we highly recommend to have the access of the Patient App to Home Monitoring activated.
The performance of BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring and its impact on patient outcome has been proven by numerous leading clinical trials.
