ScreenLink - Legal Warning
1. Decision Tree based on Guidelines
The ScreenLink Web site and App are intended for use by health care professionals only.
The contents of the ScreenLink Web-site and App are primarily intended to operate as an additional tool for health care professionals, to help them identify patients which are potentially indicated for a Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, Pacemaker, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, Instertable Loop Recorder and Atrial Fibrillation procedures . The information in the Web site and App was developed with reference to the ESC, NICE, AHA and ACPG Guidelines for the prevention, detection and management of chronic heart failure, post-MI, SCA/VF/VT, bradycardia, atrial fibrillation and unexplained syncope and with reference to the position papers of European Heart Journal several Cardiovascular Journals on Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy , Pacemaker, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, Instertable Loop Recorder and Atrial Fibrillation procedures. In addition, different national guidelines may be issued by other national bodies or regulatory authorities on the subject. Users are therefore advised to rely on Guidelines as applicable to their geography / country and on the Information for Use of the relevant implants and instruments which are components of the Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, Pacemaker, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, Insertable Loop Recorder and Atrial Fibrillation procedures.
The information in the ScreenLink Web site and App must not be considered as an exclusive diagnostic tool for the purpose of ascertaining the right therapy indications. The final decision about the appropriate therapy indication must be based on clinical evidence, applicable clinical and professional practice protocol and not solely on the basis of ScreenLink.
Medtronic hereby expressly disclaims any responsibility and liability whatsoever arising out of such usage, and the user shall be solely responsible for the same.
2. Listing of Implanters
ScreenLink is an open registration platform for referral physicians and implanting centers and physicians, who are solely responsible for the accuracy and updating of their respective healthcare professional information. Medtronic does not verify the existence and identities of those healthcare professionals registering on ScreenLink, nor for the maintenance or update of their data.
It is the responsibility of any registered healthcare professionals to ascertain, prior to exchanging any sensitive information, the existence and accuracy of the data and information of any other registered healthcare professionals.
Medtronic has not analyzed if any restrictions exist in any territory and jurisdiction for the registration of healthcare professionals on a “physician finder” solution such as ScreenLink. By registering on ScreenLink, the healthcare professional confirms that he/she has the right under the legal regulations of the jurisdiction where he/she practices medicine to be featured in a healthcare providers’ directory such as ScreenLink.
3. Patient Data
Patient data are not stored on the ScreenLink Web-site or App. The completion of the questionnaire produces a single processing number which is not connected to any patient name or recognizable data. The correlation between a single processing number and a patient name may only be completed by the referral physician in an e-mail to the implanting center, which e-mail is stored on the respective physicians messaging software unrelated to ScreenLink. Medtronic makes no commitment regarding the safety or otherwise the protection of any patient data contained in any correspondence exchanged between users of the ScreenLink Web site or App.
