We’re dedicated to supporting our partners during the COVID-19 crisis so patients can continue to receive the care they need. Here are some ways we’re helping healthcare teams expand virtual care and patient access to these offerings.

Cardiac Device Remote Patient Management

  • Remote Management: Remote Programmer Control With increasing restrictions and scrutiny around noncritical vendor access in the hospital setting, the CareLink™ 2090 Programmer with Remote Control™ capabilities can provide remote support of CIED implant and device interrogation. This can allow for remote resource coordination, while reducing the risk of exposure for both patients and support.
  • Remote Management: Remote Programming Options Learn more about remote device management from any patient care setting within the hospital: Critical care, Inpatient, Cath lab, Surgery center, Patient clinic, etc.

Respiratory Infectious Disease and COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring

  • COVID-19 Virtual Care Evaluation and Monitoring Solution: In-home evaluation, remote monitoring, and care escalation support The Medtronic COVID-19 Virtual Care Evaluation and Monitoring solution combines a virtual assistant symptom survey and registered nurse command center to help assess, monitor, and triage support for patients who may be concerned about potential COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Medtronic Care Management Services: Respiratory Infectious Disease Health Check The Respiratory Infectious Disease Health Check helps patients with chronic, co-morbid health conditions who are at the highest risk for complications or mortality associated with COVID-19 track their respiratory infectious disease symptoms and body temperature through daily health checks. It is an included add-on to all Medtronic Care Management Services remote patient monitoring programs.

Ventilator Remote Control

  • Mechanical Ventilation: Puritan Bennett™ 980 Remote Access Omnitool Software Learn more about how Omnitool software provides clinicians with remote control access to the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator. Omnitool software allows clinicians to remotely view and adjust the ventilator settings outside of a patient room, improving workflow to help reduce PPE use.
