Sorin Group and Orange Business Services launch remote monitoring solution for patients with implanted cardiac devices
Orange Business Services and global medical device company and cardiovascular disease specialist, Sorin Group, have launched Smartview, a remote monitoring solution for patients with implanted cardiac rhythm management devices.
Available in several countries in Europe Smartview remote monitoring enables healthcare providers to access valuable cardiac data and alert messages from Sorin's implantable Paradym RF devices, while the patient is at home. Combined with remote data transmission, the intelligent proprietary features embedded in Sorin's cardiac rhythm management devices offer advanced diagnostic capabilities and early detection of cardiac disease progression for enhanced patient management. For patients, the Smartview remote monitoring solution can reduce time spent travelling to their clinic for routine device checks.
'With remote monitoring, I can efficiently review clinical and device data, usually collected during in-office follow up, while patients stay at home,' said Philippe Mabo, MD, PhD, University Hospital of Rennes, France. 'Also, the Smartview solution provides information based on Sorin's advanced device technology that may enable early detection of clinical events and better patient care,' he added.
'We are delighted to have developed our remote monitoring solution with Orange Business Services,' said Stefano Di Lullo, president, cardiac rhythm management business unit, Sorin Group. 'This partnership has enabled us to introduce an easy to use, secure remote monitoring system for physicians and patients alike that uses Sorin's intelligent device functions. The introduction of this service adds to Sorin's growing portfolio of innovative implantable heart therapies designed to save lives and improve patient symptoms.'
Smartview uses a global, scalable e-health platform from Orange Business Services, backed by the global reach of the Orange network. Healthcare providers can access important clinical insights through a secure 24/7 web application that provides a user friendly interface with patient data hosted in Orange's secure data centres. This platform is made possible by Orange's strong inhouse e-health capabilities, e-health systems integration expertise, and extensive machine to machine capabilities.
'In the expanding area of remote patient care, Orange Business Services has developed significant expertise in the development and deployment of e-health platforms that facilitate the remote monitoring and measurement of chronic illnesses,' said Thierry Zylberberg, executive vice president, Orange, and general director, Orange Healthcare. 'We are extremely proud to have been able to work with Sorin and to apply our dual expertise as a solutions integrator and network operator to the development and launch of Smartview.'
