Monitoring and triaging service for your cryptogenic stroke patients
CRYSTAL AF STUDY RESULTS
LONG-TERM CARDIAC MONITORING RECOMMENDED FOR CRYPTOGENIC STROKE PATIENTS
|IIa||B||In stroke patients, additional ECG monitoring by long-term non-invasive ECG monitors or implanted loop recorders should be considered to document silent atrial fibrillation3.|
FOCUSON™ is a monitoring and triaging service designed to help healthcare professionals save time whilst enabling better outcomes.
Our aim is simple: we want to help hospital clinical teams focus on the clinically actionable events transmitted by their patients, which represents just 20% of the total.4
To achieve this, thanks to the cardiac expertise of the FOCUSON™ team, the incoming data is monitored, triaged and reported according to clinic preference: turning cardiac data into timely, actionable insights.
Remote monitoring of patients
The CareLink™ Network receives data from patients with Medtronic implantable cardiac devices.
Monitoring and triaging service
The FOCUSON™ team monitors and triages all incoming CareLink™ data according to hospital customisations. The hospital clinical teams are then alerted about clinically actionable events via telephone, email and the FOCUSON™ Platform.
Hospital clinical teams
Teams are promptly alerted on urgent information, so they have more time to spend with patients and with those that need immediate care.
FOCUSON™ analysis performed by a highly skilled and experienced team of ECG technicians.
Prompt communication of clinically relevant events enables swift actions to treat patients.
Prioritised and proactive communication frees up resources, so more patients can be seen and treated.
