Using a standard phone line, you can send your device information to your clinic from the comfort of your home or while travelling within your country.

The Medtronic CareLink Monitor plugs into a standard phone line. The monitor gathers the information and sends it to a secure storage site. You do not need the Internet to transmit.

Patient confidentiality is a priority of the Network. The CareLink Network is secure, encrypted and protected by username and password for use by authorized clinic personnel only.

The clinic can see your device information by logging on to the CareLink Website. The CareLink Website is secure, encrypted and protected by username and password for use by authorized clinic personnel only.

Information on this site should not be used as a substitute for talking with your doctor. Always talk with your doctor about diagnosis and treatment information.
