Cardiac implanted electronic devices (CIEDs) have become part of the standard therapy in patients who are at risk of life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. CIEDs require patients to follow regular scheduled hospital visits every 3 to 6 month to monitor device parameters, adverse events and anomalous device behaviour. Additionally, a substantial number of patients require extra non scheduled visits due to arrhythmic events or system-related complications. This calls for new methods of long-term surveillance with a view to optimizing patient safety and care, alleviating the burden of caregivers, and lowering health care costs through IT support.
