Doctors have begun using a Bluetooth device to monitor patients’ heart function remotely.

The FDA-approved implant transmits data to doctors from a patient’s home, and issues alerts if any problems are recorded, according to kdka.com.

Doctor Sriniva Murali of the Allegheny General Hospital said the device allows doctors to monitor the patient, and observe what they’re doing and how compliant they are with their diet and medications.

“It allows us to give them real-time advice, and help them understand what they did yesterday is the reason for how they feel today,” Murali said.
