Merlin@Home™ Transmitter

Merlin@Home™ Transmitter


Designed to streamline your workflow and support informed clinical decisions, the Merlin@home transmitter works with the™ Patient Care Network (PCN) for easy and efficient remote care patient management.

Efficient Remote Care Management

The Merlin@home transmitter allows efficient remote care management of patients with implanted cardiac devices through scheduled transmissions and daily alert monitoring. You can complement or replace in-clinic visits with remote patient transmissions.

Ease of Use

The transmitter is easy to set up and use. Patients need an electrical outlet and a telephone landline, cellular adaptor, or broadband service. They simply plug in the transmitter next to where they sleep and the RF transmitter automatically monitors their device as they sleep.

Once the device data is read, the Merlin@home transmitter automatically transmits the information to the secure Abbott website, Patient Care Network (PCN), where you can view it.

Take Advantage of Advanced PCN Features

Providing patients with a Merlin@home transmitter allows you to take advantage of some of the more advanced features of PCN, such as:

  • DirectAlerts™ notification, which can alert you if the remote follow-up or remote monitoring reveals an episode or event about which you would like to be informed
  • Daily monitoring of patient’s disease status and device performance 
  • Better remote patient follow-up compliance through automatic uploads of data with RF devices and transmitters 
  • Point-of-care pairing of transmitter to patient’s device at your convenience; remote monitoring can be enabled as early as the day of implant

The Merlin@home transmitter is packaged with a detailed user manual and a quick start guide.
