For more than a quarter of a century, SHL Telemedicine has been at the forefront of 24/7 cardiac monitoring services. We have looked after hundreds of thousands of heart attack (“MI”), heart failure (“CHF”) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (“COPD”) patients from their home. At SHL, we receive and interpret more than one million ECGs each year. These come directly from mobile ECG devices developed by SHL and provided to our users. Our professional medical team keeps in touch with thousands of users, year round. 

Our chronic disease monitoring service for Congestive Heart Failure (“CHF”) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (“COPD”) patients, dramatically improves quality of life, reduces hospital readmissions, and the duration of hospitalizations. For both our acute and chronic telemedicine services, we provide heart and other home-use medical monitoring devices that automatically transmit data to our telemedicine center. We check the data we receive and interact with our users to monitor their wellbeing and levels of compliance with their set treatment. In some cases, we create a personal health record (PHR); in others we use the hospital’s medical record. Either way, their clinical data is maintained under data protection rules and made securely accessible online to patients and their approved physicians. Our services include regular phone calls, reminders and encouragement to help our users keep to their treatment program. 

Saving patients’ lives 

An extended clinical study by the Israeli Heart Society[1] concludes that our service significantly increases the probability of SHL users surviving the first year after a heart attack. You can see the results of this study here. 

Undercutting the readmission reality 

Our acute and chronic disease monitoring programs dramatically increase survival rates and reduce the rate, frequency and length of readmissions. 

It is no secret that all too many post Heart Attack (“MI”) and Heart Failure (“HF”) patients will require readmission within 30 days of their hospital discharge, particularly if they have no support system at home. Here too, an SHL-type service for monitoring patients following discharge can significantly reduce this phenomenon. It is a win-win choice for hospitals and patients. Health professionals also have much to gain from the attentiveness of our telemedicine service model.

Health Insurers and Payers


Many major health insurers and payers work in partnership with SHL to bring the benefits of telemedicine to their members and clients. In this way, health insurers and payers benefit from our expertise and experience, and can very quickly provide a dedicated service for their clients/members suffering from Congestive Heart Failure (“CHF”) or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (“COPD”). We can work with your company to create and specifically tailor a similar service for your members or clients.

We provide efficient and friendly service 24/7 and user-friendly medical monitoring devices to the patient for home use. Users are required to use these devices to check themselves at a pre-set frequency and transmit the results to the telemedicine center. It is a simple process, requiring only a few minutes each time.

The SHL solution enables transmission of medical data to the telemedicine center, via one or more of several communication methods” whether it’s by using the patient’s smartphone or home telephone. A combination of Bluetooth and cellular communication, or the SHL Central Communication Module (CCM) takes care of communication from the patient’s home to the telemedicine center.

In some cases, we create a personal health record (PHR); in others we use the hospital’s medical record. Either way, our users’ clinical data is maintained under data protection rules and made securely accessible online to patients and their authorized physicians and/or health insurer or payer.

If the data received at the telemedicine center deviates from a predetermined threshold, or we identify any turning point, we take steps to stabilize the patient’s condition.

In addition to monitoring the results from our mobile ECGs and other home devices, the SHL program incorporates the equally important factors of user instruction, education, and compliance with given treatment guidelines. A member of the SHL medical team also periodically contacts the user, irrespective of any medical need, in order to check up on their overall medical condition, and to strengthen the user’s compliance with their treatment guidelines and life style program.

We can also provide users educational materials on a variety of topics, covering characteristics of the illness, related drug treatment, and recommended diet and nutrition programs.

Our CHF and COPD monitoring services considerably improve our users’ quality of life. They also significantly reduce the length and frequency of their time in hospital.

Several German health insurers use the SHL telemedicine service as part of their offering to their members. In a little under two years, tens of thousands of SHL home systems were installed across Germany, and the sign-up rate of chronically ill patients suffering from illnesses such as CHF and COPD continues to increase steadily.

With SHL Telemedicine, you can also arrange for your members suffering from MI or HF to benefit from our acute cardiac care program that will cost-effectively see them through the critical first 30 days following discharge, and beyond.

We ensure that cardiac patients are under a 24-hour monitoring program in the comfort of their own homes.

This combination makes it far easier to quickly stabilize their medication needs.
