With IoT, BIOTRONIK saves lives all over the world
With the help of IoT, the data from BIOTRONIK's pacemakers and defibrillators is transmitted daily to over 5,000 clinics and medical practices worldwide. In an emergency, on-site help is not far away.
“With BIOTRONIK’s Home Monitoring system, there is a 60 percent chance to save a life – a true impact for patients with cardiovascular diseases.”
Volker Lang, Senior Vice President Research and Development, BIOTRONIK
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.
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.
For patients whose heartbeat is continuously monitored by home monitoring technology, the death rate has been reduced by 60%. In the future, innovative 5G technology can be used to develop new services that transmit health data and save lives.
