System Grabs Cardiac Data From 1,000 Implantable Devices

Jan. 12, 2007 — Medtronic Inc. has released the newest version of the Medtronic Paceart System, "Get Connected," designed to ensure easy electronic access to key implantable device data wherever it's needed. The new edition expands support for diskless SessionSync data transfer between the Medtronic CareLink Programmer (Model 2090) and Paceart, as well as data transfer between Paceart and electronic health record or practice management systems via industry-standard HL7(R) [Health Level Seven(R)] protocols.

Paceart serves as an information hub for clinicians, says Medtronic, providing access to detailed patient and device data regardless of the source. The company says the system removes barriers clinics and hospitals face while trying to efficiently access and transfer data from varied diagnostic and clinic information management systems. “Get Connected” consolidates detailed data from in-clinic device interrogations from the major implantable cardiac device manufacturers, and also remote management technologies such as the Medtronic CareLink Network, and transtelephonic monitoring (TTM) systems, including pacemaker transmitters and cardiac event recorders.

Paceart supports the management of data for more than 1,000 implantable cardiac devices. In addition, Paceart serves as a single integration point, reducing the number of interfaces and information technology resources needed to share information electronically with other systems.

The latest edition features industry-standard HL7 data transfer technology, which enables the sharing of key patient and implantable cardiac device information with any HL7-compatible electronic medical record or practice management system. The HL7 integration module supports receiving patient registration and scheduling information, and sending patient follow-up data, reducing duplication and improving overall data accuracy when compared to manual processes.
