With worldwide approvals, in addition to screening and diagnostics, IEM offers follow-up management in the form of interventional telemetry. Tailor-made solutions are available to the customer in this respect. The customer decides whether the overall data logistics are to be performed using IEM products from monitor to eHealth database, or whether third-party devices or an external database are to be added. The "all-round, worry-free service" is completed with holistic shipping logistics (refresh & dispatch service), the handling of technical support and customisation of the database and accompanying documentation.
Chronic heart failure is one of the most prevalent internal medical conditions within industrial countries. It goes hand in hand with frequent doctor's appointments and in Germany, it is the most common reason for hospital stays. This disease is therefore a huge burden for patients in addition to being associated with significant healthcare costs.
The use of telemetric devices to carry out targeted weight monitoring can significantly improve the care situation. A number of studies have shown that hospitalisation rates can be greatly reduced through the use of telemedicine and the mortality rate is also significantly lower. The average treatment costs for heart failure patients fall significantly in the telemetrically monitored group.
Recording and classifying cardiac arrhythmias is of particular significance. As the most common arrhythmia in Germany, only the widespread disease of atrial fibrillation is of great interest due to the serious health consequences and enormous costs for the healthcare system. Even short fluttering episodes represent a high risk of stroke.
Atrial fibrillation, which often only occurs intermittently, makes a targeted search difficult, is associated with many doctor's visits and reduces the patient's quality of life. Interventional ECG telemetry makes recording ECG sequences easier and provides timely identification of rhythm and heart rate documentation.
Successful blood pressure management involves a great deal of time and processing effort as well as a number of doctor's appointments. Treatment is also characterised by frequent titration and compliance/adherence measures.
Through interventional blood pressure telemetry, the aim is to make successful blood pressure adjustment much quicker and more effective. Automatic communication between the treating doctor/health coach and the patient results in needs-based titration.
The effects of telemedicine on the blood pressure goals achieved have been proven to be sustainable here.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a lung disease characterised by shortness of breath, coughing and difficulty exhaling and one that is progressive. It is one of the most common causes of death in industrialised countries.
The use of telemedicine can detect deterioration in the disease progression early, meaning any possible adjustments can be implemented. This can reduce the number of hospital admissions and improve patient quality of life. In terms of healthcare costs, telemedical care can result in cost savings compared with conventional care.
