Connectivity and Remote Care

Stay Powerfully Connected

We Offer a Depth of Experience and Breadth of Solutions

From the first Bluetooth® remote monitoring technology to our latest app-based features, Abbott has a long history of creating reliable ways to monitor patients outside of the clinic. That commitment has never been as important is it is today: patients increasingly want and need more flexibility to stay connected to your care without an office visit.

We offer products and solutions to help you easily engage in a patient’s health care journey to influence their behavior, encourage compliance and streamline patient management. Abbott is redefining connectivity and remote care with powerfully connected smartphone integration to propel continuous, reliable patient engagement.

myMerlin Mobile App

The myMerlin™ mobile app accompanies Abbott’s Bluetooth®-enabled insertable cardiac monitors. The app is compatible with your patient’s iPhone‡ or Android‡ smartphone.* When paired with an inserted Abbott ICM, the myMerlin mobile app makes monitoring your patient’s heart easy, effective and discreet, while delivering data 20x faster than other ICMs.1

myMerlinPulse Mobile App

The myMerlinPulse™ mobile app accompanies the latest Bluetooth®-enabled ICD and CRT-D from Abbott -- Gallant™ and Entrant™. The app is compatible with your patient’s iPhone‡ or Android‡ smartphone.* When paired with your patient’s implanted Gallant or Entrant devices, the app empowers you and your patient with a mobile solution that encourages continuous, reliable engagement with remote monitoring. Patient Care Network (PCN)

The™ Patient Care Network (PCN) is a web application used to remotely monitor and manage patients who have Abbott cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices. The system allows you and other clinicians to monitor you patients’ cardiac conditions, track their devices’ performance and manage their transmission schedules.

Merlin@home Transmitter

The Merlin@home™ transmitter allows your patient to have their device checked from the comfort of their own home, reducing the number of scheduled clinic visits. The transmitter is also able to monitor your patient’s device daily between scheduled follow-ups and can alert your clinic if it detects anything you might need to be aware of.

MerlinOnDemand Capability Transmitter

Transmitters with MerlinOnDemand™ capability can promptly interrogate your patient’s implanted cardiac device in the hospital setting and deliver printed reports without the physical presence of an Abbott representative. The MerlinOnDemand capability represents a solution to maintaining your department’s efficiency and high level of patient care.

SyncUP Remote Monitoring Support

SyncUP™ support experts connect directly with your patients to set up their Abbott remote monitoring apps. SyncUP support guides your patients through installation of the myMerlin Mobile App for Abbott ICM devices and the myMerlinPulse Mobile App for Gallant and Entrant ICD and CRT-D Abbott devices.

SyncUP experts deliver one-on-one education to help a patient understand how to install and use the app so patients can fully understand how remote monitoring works—all from the comfort of the patient’s home.
