Medtronic Mainspring™ Data Express helps bring together device and patient data from the Medtronic CareLink® Network, Paceart® System, CareLink® Programmer, your Electronic Health Record (EHR) system, and your local network. Medtronic leads the industry with connectivity solutions, connecting many types of cardiac device data from various sources to over 40 EHRs.
Connecting data between systems gives you a more efficient and effective information infrastructure and helps provide a more efficient workflow. This, in turn, helps to improve clinical documentation to support appropriate billing services, provide access to patient records at remote locations, and meet the requirements of a “meaningful user” under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Medtronic helps connect implanted cardiac device data to your clinic system, including electronic health record (EHR) systems, by providing cutting edge software which enables data to flow from the device to your desktop. The data moves between Medtronic applications and your clinic system. The following paper highlights the importance of connecting data to the EHR:
Mainspring™ Report Export electronically moves Medtronic diagnostic reports from the CareLink® Network to your Electronic Health Record System/Clinic Data System in a timely, efficient manner.
Easy Access to Reports
Enhanced Continuity of Care
Note: Customers should follow their internal security/privacy procedures for handling patient data on the programmers and USB flash drives.
If you use the CareLink® Network and Paceart® System, you may need to enter patient remote schedules two to three times into different systems. Now that’s over.
CareLink Network and Paceart System schedules are integrated to offer One-Stop Scheduling. Enter your CareLink appointments in the Paceart System or the CareLink Website, and you’re done. Scheduling information is automatically shared between the systems, making your life simpler, more efficient.
If you use an EHR data interface, you can schedule in your EHR or master scheduling system and the appointment transfers automatically to the Paceart System, CareLink Network, and the device.
The Paceart solution creates a single connection point, or gateway, for data exchange between the Paceart System and other healthcare information systems, such as electronic health record (EHR) and practice management systems. The Paceart System consolidates patient arrhythmia and device data from multiple sources.
The Paceart System’s HL7 interface allows clinics to:
The Paceart System’s technical support team provides assistance with clinic implementation, training, and use of the HL7 standards. Medtronic is committed to providing ongoing service and support to Paceart System customers.
“Paceart is the hub of all activity that occurs in the device center. It allows us to integrate all the responsibilities we have for managing our patients and all of the information we have concerning those patients into one place, in a format that makes it easy for us to interpret the information.”

The following study, conducted at The Ohio Heart and Vascular Center, showed a 9-minute per patient time savings in the clinic workflow processes1 when a device follow-up system is integrated into a clinic’s EHR.
The Medtronic Paceart® System is the only device follow-up system on the market that integrates demographics, scheduling, and device data all in one place – providing a single solution for all device data and unmatched EHR coverage.
Medtronic participates on the Implantable Device Cardiac Observation (IDCO) committee, and successfully completed the IHE Connectathon testing of the IDCO profile in January of 2010. In this round of testing, Medtronic connected with EHR vendors including Epic, General Electric, NextGen, and Medical Micrographics.
Medtronic showcased its complete data connectivity solution at the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference in March of 2010. As the only cardiac device manufacturer participating in the Interoperability Showcase, Medtronic displayed its ability to connect cardiac device data to an Electronic Health Record (EHR).

Faced with increasing volumes of patient and device data, cardiac clinics need efficient ways to organize workflow and provide care. SessionSync® software offers a fast and easy way to transfer in-clinic cardiac device data for Medtronic devices into your Paceart System.
SessionSync software lets you break free from the use of floppy disks and other portable media and avoid manual data transfer. Direct downloads through SessionSync software improve clinic workflow, save valuable time, and may enhance data accuracy by reducing possible errors associated with manual data entry.
SessionSync software on the Medtronic CareLink Programmer transfers device follow-up data directly from the programmer into a patient’s Paceart System record. Simply end the follow-up session on the programmer, and the data automatically populate Paceart System fields via the clinic’s Ethernet network.
The CareLink Programmer can connect to your clinic’s network via an Ethernet cable or a wireless connection.* For programmers used at remote locations that aren’t connected to the clinic’s network, the programmer will store up to 200 follow-up sessions and automatically transfer data to the Paceart System once the network connection is re-established.
SessionSync software supports direct data transfer for about three-quarters of Medtronic’s implantable cardiac devices. A complete listing of SessionSync-enabled devices can be found in the Implantable Cardiac Device Guide.
By automatically transferring data after the programmer session, the Paceart System:
Use of SessionSync in a wireless configuration requires a Medtronic-supplied 802.11b wireless card and an established 802.11b-compatible wireless network. The network must support WEP wireless security. Medtronic will not establish or maintain a clinic’s wireless infrastructure. For questions about wireless SessionSync, contact Medtronic Paceart’s Technical Support Team at 1 (800) PACEART.
