Orange Business to Offer Remote monitoring For Cardiac Patients

Orange Business Services is working with Sorin Group,

a global medical device company, to develop and service a remote monitoring solution for patients implanted with cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices. This new solution is based on Sorin's implanted CRM devices' ability to send data to a non-invasive monitoring system located at the patient's home and on Orange Business Services' capabilities to manage the transmission of the data to the physician.

The companies said their solution will facilitate the follow-up care of patients by transmitting data electronically from patients' implanted cardiac devices to their physicians, without the patients leaving their homes. Using these data, physicians can detect arrhythmia or cardiac disease progression and provide timely therapy, which may reduce the need for hospitalization and improve the patients' quality of life.
