Due to changes in remote treatment regulations, various applications for telemedicine systems have developed in certain gaps in coverage in recent years. MediConnect® provides innovative software modules in this field for integrating and documenting remote diagnostics as well as the remote screening of patients and/or test persons. The establishment of these technologies ensures the integrated use of devices or apps with the software used in the clinic for documentation and data analysis.
In the field of pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and implantable loop recorders (ILR) alone, more than 150,000 devices are implanted in Germany every year. Due to the demographic development, the trend is increasing. Every three to six months, the systems need to be checked according to the guidelines. In Germany, it is estimated that approximately 1.2 to 1.6 million patients with implants require regular follow-up care. This is an ideal field of application for the MediConnect® module Telemedical Procedure – Device Aftercare, which supports the aftercare scenario by means of automated data transfer of the remote aftercare systems established on the market. Together with the modules for device implantation and the functional diagnostic module Device Aftercare, this module ensures a highly efficient rhythmology procedure in everyday clinical practice.
