Challenge

BIOTRONIK's top priority is improving patient health and saving lives. No matter where a patient is, the heartbeat and possible changes must be monitored – in order to be able to act quickly if the worst comes to the worst.

Solution

BIOTRONIK connects its medical devices with Deutsche Telekom's global mobile network. Health data is automatically and daily transmitted to the treating doctor and analyzed. Even if the patient travels to another country, the devices reconnect automatically.
