Medtronic announced today the launch of CareLink Mobile Application, which the company calls the first mobile application that pairs with implantable cardiac devices. The app is available for the iPhone and iPad. CareLink Mobile Application enables clinicians to access cardiac device diagnostic information and patient data directly from their mobile devices. Medtronic makes clear that this app is simply a new access point for the CareLink Network. The app also allows physicians to review Medtronic CareAlert transmissions and a patient's last transmission and then triage and take action as needed.

“As a physician, the convenient mobile application gives me a new way to access the important patient data that I have come to rely on from the CareLink Network,” Dr. Suneet Mittal, director of electrophysiology, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center stated in the release. “Using this new application I can more easily view CareLink information on an iPhone or on my iPad. Being able to view CareLink’s CareAlert transmissions helps me respond to clinical events in a timely manner and provide more proactive patient care, which, as a health care provider, is my ultimate goal.”

Medtronic's CareLink Network aims to provide clinicians with the same level of information that they gather during an in-person visit with patients who have Pacemakers, Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (ICDs) and Implantable Cardiac Monitors (ICMs).
