[Use Case] Smartview, remote monitoring solution for patients with implanted cardiac rhythm management devices
Patients fitted with heart prostheses require regular monitoring by their cardiologists. The remote monitoring solution represents a significant step forward in medical support.
Treatment and monitoring of these patients represents an increasing burden for doctors’ clinical practice. What’s more, because of the frequency of consultations and the number of doctors, some appointments are difficult to make … So, early identification of technical or medical anomalies makes it possible to respond quickly and take the necessary ad hoc steps.
The patient’s implanted device wirelessly transmits data to a home monitor installed in the patient’s bedroom.
The home monitor then sends the data on to a centralized database hosted by Orange. Physicians can access the information, which is presented in easy-to-read, standardised patient reports, from their computer by connecting to the SMARTVIEWTM secure website.
Physicians can remotely access and review patient’s health status and adapt treatment if necessary.
Remote monitoring improves treatment of cardiac patients and facilitates management of their clinical follow-up. Using the patient data transmitted from home, healthcare providers will have access to the most current information from their patient’s device. This may help early detection of potential health issues, before they become life-threatening, and to put in place adequate treatment.
Quality of life is also improved: patients no longer need frequent visits, only attending those that are essential, and feel safer thanks to the ongoing monitoring provided.
The work of medical personnel and healthcare centres is optimised: the time freed up because consultations are no longer required can be used for other patients.
