Available Monitors Remote Monitoring

Once you get your heart device, we understand it is important to stay connected to your care team from the comfort of your home or wherever you’re traveling - remote monitoring allows for this flexibility.

Today, millions of people implanted with heart devices are remotely monitored.

It is important to find the right remote monitoring option for you depending on the type of heart device you have.

MYCARELINK HEART MOBILE APP

The MyCareLink Heart mobile app allows you to use a smartphone or tablet instead of a bedside monitor. Whether at home or on the go, you’ll stay connected to your clinic using cellular data or Wi-Fi. The app also gives you access to information about your heart device, including implant date, heart device type, model, and serial number, and it will send you notifications on transmission and connectivity status.

This option may be best if you:

  • Own a compatible smartphone or tablet.
  • Keep a smartphone or tablet nearby at least 3 hours per day.
  • Are comfortable using a smartphone or have a family member that is able to support.

 *Keep your mobile device and software current so you can continue to use the app.

CONNECTING YOUR MYCARELINK RELAY TO WI-FI

We recommend that you set up Wi-Fi to ensure you have a more robust connection for sending transmissions and for receiving software and security updates.

The MyCareLink Relay™ Home Communicator will automatically default to a cellular connection if you do not use Wi-Fi or if your Wi-Fi stops working. Setting up Wi-Fi is not required.
