June 1, 2016 — Biotronik announced the launch of CardioMessenger Smart in the United States. CardioMessenger Smart is a portable monitoring device, about the size of a modern smartphone, that keeps pacemaker, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) patients connected to their physician remotely, enabling more efficient care management anywhere in the world.

The device provides secure, fully automatic transmission of vital information from a patient’s cardiac implant to their physician via Biotroink Home Monitoring. This includes daily, automatic reports and fully customizable alerts that can be programmed to the physician’s specifications. As demonstrated by the TRUST, COMPAS and IN-TIME clinical studies, Home Monitoring can significantly reduce hospitalization, stroke and mortality. CardioMessenger Smart recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.

“The clinical and economic benefits of remote monitoring have been well established over a decade of clinical studies,” stated Niraj Varma, M.D., in reference to the 2015 Heart Rhythm Society Expert Consensus Statement on remote monitoring. “But these benefits are only realized if patients consistently use the technology. When we make the remote monitoring process easy for patients, we increase the likelihood of patient adherence, which has been demonstrated to improve health outcomes.” Varma was lead investigator for the TRUST Trial, which laid the foundation for the guidelines, and co-chair of the HRS committee.

The portability of CardioMessenger Smart helps ensure patient compliance and the consistent transmission of data necessary for physicians to identify and prevent potential cardiac events. CardioMessenger Smart is fully automatic, providing daily reports of cardiac activity via worldwide cellular networks to physicians without intervention from the patient.
