St Jude, IBM collaborate on new cardiac device monitor and programmer :

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

St Jude Medical and the information technology giant IBM have developed a new system designed to manage patients implanted with cardiac devices such as defibrillators and pacemakers more efficiently. The Merlin patient care system, approved by the FDA in April, is a portable computer which allows doctors to retrieve and analyse patient information during routine follow-up visits and to make programming changes to the implanted devices. As part of the companies' seven-year collaborative agreement, IBM will continue to act as the business liaison with the third party contract manufacturer who will be responsible for the manufacturing of the system. St Jude begins worldwide distribution of the product immediately.
