Sweden with world's first online pacemaker register:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Sweden has become the first country to provide a high-quality monitoring of pacemaker patients via the internet. The pacemaker register and the doctors' network, which provides the internet service Ronden, intends to launch the programme in autumn, with a view to increasing patient safety and quality within the healthcare system. Problems arising from the existing register system include duplicative diagnosis, long waiting periods and the inputting of wrong data. Developed by Softronic, the new net-ready system has the approval of the National Board of Health and Welfare (SOS). In Sweden some 5,000 pacemakers are implanted in Sweden yearly.
