Remote monitoring for implantable cardiac devices

Mundy L, Hiller JE
Record ID 32012000235
Authors' recomendations: Three case series were included for assessment, with an additional two case series reporting similar results. All reported the potential of home monitoring to reduce the number of clinical visits required by patients implanted with cardiac devices, which may impact on the health care costs. The Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) recently completed a systematic review on the use of remote monitoring systems for implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) therefore HealthPACT has recommended that no further assessment be undertaken.
